Village Store
Village Store (Location 12)

This is a fairly well-kept establishment with an assortment of farm implements and cooking utensils on the wide porch. The door stands open, and a well-painted sign depicting a pot, a plow, a sack, and a lantern hangs over all.

Re: Village Store
I move into the shadow of the storefront and peer cautiously inside, being sure to watch where I put my feet in case some spectacles happen to lay in my path.
"Keep an eye out for those spectacles Umbra...," I say to him under my breath before hesitantly calling out loud, "Is anybody in?"
"Shinies!" Umbra cackles before I pinch his beak closed with two fingers.

OOC: Do you want me to make a roll now to see if Umbra is successful in finding the glasses?

Re: Village Store
A wide eyed man in commoners garb and an apron comes to the front of the store, followed by a woman with a long braid in her graying hair.
"Yes, we're open stranger. May I help you?"

Tables full of mostly mundane items for sale fill the store behind them. There is a curtain in the back that probably leads to the back porch door.

The shopkeep notices Aymery walking up behind Laas and mumbles something under his breath about "... mercenary rabble..."

OOC: Make a Wisdom + Background (+level) check and add +2 for Umbra.

In reply to Grimmshade (msg # 3):

17:58, Today: Laas Yah-Nir rolled 24 using 1d20+7. Umbra's hunt for spectacles. (Wis, level and +2 for Umbra, didn't really have a background that fit looking for things in an urban environment.) 24!

"Ah, hello there. It was so quiet inside I wasn't sure anyone was here. Do you happen to have any healing potions or mixtures in stock? I've been on the road some time and I'm completely out."
Covering my mouth as I pretend to clear my throat I mutter to Umbra under my breath, "Back door."
Umbra takes off in a flurry of black, stirring my hair as I continue to look at the couple, unflinching. He wings around the back of the store and out of sight.

OOC: Laas typically doesn't rely on skunky pre-mixed potions of the common variety as he is usually able to make something in the field, ingredients providing. He is simply hoping to keep their attention while Umbra goes in the back door to find the spectacles!

"We don't carry potions. I'd check the temple. We mostly carry more everyday items. You're free to look around."

Umbra returns with spectacles in his beak and mumbles, "Danger, two bad men in back. Watch you now."

"Ah, well thanks anyway. Good evening to you." I turn my back on them, catching the spectacles Umbra drops into my hand when they can't see. I stow them in the sleeve of my robe and walk to the relative safety of Aymery nearby, "Let's go, Umbra says we're being watched and I'd rather not cause another scene so soon."
I stick close to the warrior as we head towards the vineyard. Umbra looks back from my shoulder and lets out a defiant, heckling caw.
