So fun fact- Acame arrives first at the inn, by a pretty large margin (which makes things a tad awkward because I know HPD has a birthday party he's going to today, but we'll play it by ear). I'm going to say that Hanzo, Sakura, and Valerie arrive more or less at the same time, and Rowan takes the longest- because I have not forgotten his second request. (Ok, I had, for a bit, which is why I didn't post this last night).
You window shop like a boss. The combined time of your two tasks does take you much of the hour, but you cover the highlights.
The two general stores in the main square seem to be the difference between a Provisioner
who sells basic adventuring material (all the miscillaneous general gear you might find in the equipment section), and a Trader
who sells weapons, armor, and trade goods- salt, spices, cloth, etc. He also has a limited quantity of more unique gear on a shelf- mostly potions, it seems.
Detecting you window shopping, the trader indicates to you, after a short conversation, that while he will buy most things adventurers bring back
, he is particularly interested in furs
The Smith seems to deal in repairing items
, making gear like horseshoes, and making weapons and armor. He has some weapons and armor for sale, though not as many as the trader.
The sign on the door of the bank
"Tustvold's Lending" has a note that the place is under the protection of the Keep. I'm not sure if you would have interest in going in there, so I will keep it at that.
To the north is the Guildhouse
, which, after asking around, you find out that it is not just one guild's house, but rather a loose collection of various crafting and merchant guilds maintain a single house in the town, offering rooms to any traveling craftsmen that pass through. If you needed to hire a craftsman
, this would be where to check
So at this point, I feel like the party has explored the town enough that I can give you a more official map. Well, one someone else made.
The gates to the inner keep are on the northern section of the image. I've blacked out a few names that are still a mystery- one of the houses in the middle was the house of the rich man Hanzo found. Nothing else should be too terribly surprising. I'll put this map in the first post, too.
