Chapter 1-Group 2: The Market place
Group 2= Ravaella, Orrik, Finbarri, Stefan Aruello, Amadeus

Everyone: The market place of Halidar is famed throughout the land. Because this kingdom is such a melting pot and center of society it is the best place to barter, trade, and sell one's goods. Even many of the sand people of Dajhiris travel here to get the best prices for their exotic wares. Although the city has much to explore and to offer, this is the place that most catches your eye. It has been said that a person can find anything here, whether it be items of magic, ancient texts, or simply information....

ooc: Note, none of you know each other as yet. I will let you know when you become aware of each other. Go ahead and explore the marketplace if you wish. If you wish to go someplace else that is fine too. This is just a good place to start you out.

Also, Orrik, I am not starting you quite yet until I find out a couple of things for your character. You should be ready as soon as that is done.

Fin takes his time wandering from stall to stall glancing over each seller's wares making mental notes of each vender. He is also scanning the market for anyone who might stand out as a potential mark.

Re: Chapter 1-Group 2: The Market place
Stefan wanders through the market, his eyes perusing the wares that have come from around the world to this place.  He stands out for his gaunt frame and desert garb, his face showing as he has unwrapped it, the edges of his tribal tattoos visible at the left base of his neck.  He keeps his eyes wary, but he walks with the air of those with little money, seeming unguarded as his ragged appearance was a better protection from cutpurses then any amount of vigilance.

Ravaella is walking around the market, looking for any magical items of interest. she stands out as she is wearing a full suit of plate mail with the holy symbol of
Duodinemmen emblazoned across the chestplate. She has her shield strapped across her back and her morningstar hangs at her waist.

Re: Chapter 1-Group 2: The Market place
ooc: If anyone wants to buy anything remember how much gold you have and make sure you choose an item from the Dungeon master's guide so I can look it up. Also make sure you can afford it! If you want an item from a different book that is fine, but please send me a description of the item as well as its price. Thanks!


Finbarri: You find that there are so many different vendors that it makes your head spin. You select the large section of vendors that seems to have the most expensive and valuable items and find that there are magic items, expensive jewelry fit for nobles (many of which you see shopping there), potions, fine clothes and shoes, weapons, extremely well crafted traveling gear, and above all various magic items, texts, books, scrolls, and so on. As for people who are potential marks, you see that many of the nobles are traveling with body guards who stand a vigilant watch as their masters select their purchases. You do see one noblewoman, however, looking over a large stack of books with her back turned. Her money purse dangles temptingly and there is no one else near her.

Stefan: You find that your attire and appearance do protect you from pickpockets, however the noble class seems to be quite wary of you. Most of them seem to be traveling with body guards who give you a disapproving look of warning, as if making sure you don't come too close to their employers. You do see several fellow countrymen, however, who have come far to trade here. They notice you with interest for the Dajhiri do not often come so far unless there is a good reason.

Ravaella: You find all sorts of magical items. Everything from weapons to scrolls and texts, to magic jewelery and other such wares. In fact, the market place seems to be be even bigger and busier than when you last remember it, leading you to believe that business must be good. Unfortunately, this seems to also affect the prices as much of the wares you find are extremely expensive, though you do know that haggling has its place here. As you are looking around, you see a small boy looking at you with a frown, as if trying to determine something about you. He looks ragged and dirty and no more than five.

I approach the little boy slowly, as I get closer I say "What is the matter? You seem at odds with me somehow?"
