"That would be me. I can get you 40% of list in everything except the monogrammed items and the embroidered silk brocade. Those are highly recognizable, and I will not be able to move them easily, and you would be subject to arrest and seizure if you attempted to move them yourselves, so I will do 20% on those.


Whoever wants to haggle the price of the lot must make a quick contest of Merchant skill vs 15. Win, price goes up by 5%. lose, it goes down by 5%

The box opens as described, revealing a very complex locking system, and about two pounds of mixed copper and silver coins (coins are 255 by the pound and look slightly thinner than American dimes, or like this:

"Happy to accept those prices then, sir. Now, you have your prisoner, and the goods. Total payment?"

Re: Balar's Hoard
Darius kept watching the exchange from the background. The morality of it rankled, but it was a group decision - and the reward did sooth his disagreement.

The Merchant performs an appraisal.
Not counting the multi-locked cash box, which is valuable on its own (only $180 if sold)
            and contains 348 Silver worth $6960
                         198 copper worth $198
He gives you the following:
 For 8 easily identifiable bolts of silk brocade  at 30% comes to $3240
 For 12 bottles of fine dwarven spirit at the standard 40% comes to $288
 For 2 small kegs of Armangac (fortified wine) at the sandard 40% comes to $339
 for a monogrammed multi-drawed spice cabinet full of 1oz jars of spices
      reduced to 30% due to the branding on the vials and the chest comes to $915
 for two similarly branded chests with a pound of cinnamon and cloves
     also reduced to 30% of value, coming to a toal of $930

For sold goods that is $ 4812
cash from box is $7118
Reward for Balar is $1000
Reward for proof of associates is $50 each or $1200
Total cash to divide: $14,130

You will also be able to sell armor and weapons:
24 cheap shortswords are worth $1536 when sold
12 cheap crossbows are together worth $288
One decent thrusting broadsword is worth $300
One suit of used Brigandine is worth $2160
24 cheap knives can bring you $153
One Fine Large knife is worth $64

You may want to pick over the gear before selling; DR 5 Brigandine usually costs $5400 to have it repaired and refitted would cost only $432 from a smith

Melchizedek is interested in the armour, as he has none, though if anyone wants to upgrade lighter armour, that would work too.

Re: Balar's Hoard
While the Brigandine would be nice for Darius, that'd require him losing his signature gear robe - he'll pass.

Cash only, except for the fine large knife (at $64 that shouldn't break the bank).

Re: Balar's Hoard
OOC Aegis will take 4 bottles of the dwarven spirits.  The rest will be in cash.

He'll also remove a lock of Balar's hair to keep as a spoil of war.  And it might be useful later.

It's a pity he couldn't justify taking any fingers.

Trophy taking of sentient beings, when it is not business related like trading hands for a bounty is a heavy OPH in the 15 point range, and not a function of bloodlust, which ranges from "always double-tap" to being the Punisher.

Selling the hard to open box?

Also, the room rental for the meetup amounts to $120 to be paid to the Shady Lady so this deal never happened.

The merchant has his porters take the sack of hands, and put bags over Dalicia and Balar's heads, find them, and the guards escort them out after binding them. Two are frogmarching Baker. The porters also wrap the bolts of silk in burlap and haul them out.


Your green mule collapses, reverting suddenly to it's  normal color. The animal just appears confused and fatigued.

Melchizedek will return the mule. Wait was that his, or hired? My memory is dodgy, as is my internet...

Darius says goodbye to the Mule (who'll probably not appreciate it). After that, let's see.
