'I see," Kardul responds skeptically, "Mind if I test a couple of samples?"

"Be my guest," Bane replies, "You will, of course, still have to pay the full price for the used samples."

"That's fine," Kardul gives a devious smile as he rummages for a pack in the center of the crate, "So will my customers."

Zirak smirks, secure in the knowledge he is unlikely to be said customer.

Kardul fits the power pack into a blaster pistol resting below the counter.

"Well, it actually fits," he says to the female twi’lek in Ryl, "There's a start."

He then enters the room behind, fires off a couple of rounds, before returning and repeating the process with several more packs. He seems satisfied.

"This crate seems decent," he says, "How many units do you have?"

"One thousand," Bane replies, "We have nine more crates on the ship."

"Well, I'll naturally have to test each crate," Kardul replies, "But assuming they are the same as this lot, I can give you ten credits per unit. Ten thousand for the lot."

"I wonder if you heard about what happened to the group of nikto thugs who tried to cheat us at the landing platform earlier..." Zirak muses sinisterly.

"Now, now," Bane says firmly to Zirak, "We like this person. He's our friend. Come now," he adds to Kardul pleasantly, "They’re worth thrice that and you know it. Still, I want to clear them, so let's say twenty-five credits per unit?"

"I like you, Helmet," Kardul replies, watching Zirak and Bane's exchange with a perplexed look, "But surely you can give me some sort of bulk discount? I’m buying a thousand of them, after all..."

"Or indeed a 'Bulq' discount," Bane says, glancing at Zirak.

Chapter V: The Slums of Denon
The trio continue their haggling for the best part of fifteen minutes. Sella, who is perusing the store's wares a few meters away, glances up after a few minutes and seems disgruntled to see the pair still in the process of haggling. Sora, who has a one quarter interest in the proceedings, watches patiently and intently. He eventually joins in, with the voices of the four hagglers growing louder and louder until they are practically shouting at each other.

OOC: Kardul Vuula rolled 15 using 1d20+11. Haggle.
Bane Malar rolled 22 using 1d20+6. Haggle.
Zirak Derasir rolled 16 using 1d20+1. Haggle (Aid Another DC10).
Sora Bulq rolled 10 using 1d20. Haggle (Aid Another DC10).

"Fine, fine!" Kardul says at length, raising his hands for silence, "Very well, Helmet, twenty credits per power pack."

He extends a hand.

Bane inclines his head, taking the proffered hand and giving it a firm shake.

"Come on Sella," he calls, turning, "We've got nine more crates to transport and we don't want to keep our customer waiting."

"Exactly, we would hate to be rude," Zirak smiles meanly.

Sora glances at Sella, looking uncomfortable.

"I will carry the crates myself," Sora informs Bane and Zirak, "I can manage."

With that he strides from the shop.

Sella gives Sora's retreating back a grateful look, though it seems to cloud with a flicker of guilt, and she looks away.

"Pathetic," Zirak sneers, "Keep an eye on her, Bane, and on our goods. I shall help Sora carry them."

Sora strides purposefully back to the ship, and it is a testament both to him and to his species that he manages to heave up one of the crates, unassisted, and begin to make his way out of the ship. He does not object, however, when Zirak appears and offers to assist him. The next hour is spent with the pair making nine trips back and fourth between ship and shop.

After the last crate has been transported and tested, Kardul seems satisfied, and has transferred twenty thousand credits to their credit chip.

"Pleasure doing business with you, Helmet," he has shaken Bane's hand once more with a smile, "Thank you."

Bane's helmet doubtless conceals a devious smile as he shakes the merchant's hand once more.

"No, thank you."

OOC: End of Chapter V...
