Rikka nods, and agrees to Andalon's proposal "We can do that."

Fuzzy:  Rikka's Smithy
Domitius entered the smithy and stood quietly watching the smith at work, it had always fascinated by the process which took a raw lump of metal and reshaped it into something beautiful.  It took strength and patience, something to be admired in anyone but when it wrought things like the armour he had come to pick up that truly awed the young man.

Finally when the smith finished Domitius politely asked "Mistress Rikka, is the breastplate ready?" he had been very specific, mithral to keep it light, a muscled torso with a golden sun in the centre of the chest for his house, a helm in the Taldan style but open faced so he could see and be heard over the sounds of battle.  He waited holding his breath in anticipation.

"It just needs the final fitting." Rikka says indicating that Domitius should prepare himself.  One the breastplate has been offered up, Rikka and an assistant make minor adjustments to the straps and buckles intended to hold the breastplate in place, before handing it over.

"No point having an expensive piece of armour if it doesn't fit properly ..." she says finalising the deal.



OOC: gear is ready for everyone who ordered it.  You can post a collection if here (if you want to) or you can just write it onto your sheet.

"My thanks Rikka, this is magnificent beyond anything I had dreamed off.
he lightly touched the blackened metal of the cuirass then traced his hand over the golden sun.  Truly a masterwork, I shall be proud to wear it and shall praise your work from here to Restov.  Completely satisfied Domitius leaves the shop wearing his armour and smiling contentedly.

Domitius returned to the smithy, his last fight had been difficult,  the lack of a magical weapon had limited him to being a target.  "Ah Rikka, always a pleasure to see you.  i have some work for you that if possible I will need done sooner than later.  A dueling sword of Mithril, with minor enchamtments.  Also this breastplate I acquired last time I was here could you enchant that as well?"

Before heading out again, Adoven stops at the smithy. He asks "Rivka, can Effortless Lace be applied to a Masterwork weapon, and then enchanted afterwards? Also, have you access to lighter metals for constructing lightweight-yet-durable armors such as a Breastplate?"

Rikka deals with Domitius's requests first.  "I was half expecting such a request,  fron Restov if not from Midmarch itself." Rikka syas  Going to a locked cabinet and withdrawing a finely chased mithral duelling sword.  She twirls it a couple of times, enjoying the balance, before passing it to Domitious.  The patterning along the grips and upper blade is simple, but well executed, while the blade itself is all business.

"It is not enchanted yet, but I can do that at the same time as I enchant the armour."

She beckons an assistant forwards,  "If Lord Solanus is happy, please take both items through to Astrane for preparation."

Turning to Adoven, Rikka considers his question for a moment.  "Effortless Lace.  That is the effect that allows you to use a weapon  more dextrously.  Let's see, it works on one-handed weapons, with a handle -  but not on shields or weapons that are fitted to the bearer.  The lace itself is separate from the weapon, if it is ever removed thenboth the lace and the weapon lose their enchantment.  However, I see no reason that the lace can't be applied to a masterwork of enchanted weapons.


As for lighter materials, what did you have in mind?"


OOC - Enchanted Lace will not work with bludgeoning weapons, Shields or thins like a manople or scizore that are attached to the body.

Domitius took the blade reverently holding it to the light to better see the patterns he gave himself some room then performed a series of attack and defense routines before pausing.  He than began a dazzling display of the Aldori style before stopping and panting heavily at his exertions.  "Simply magnificent, truly a work of art Rikka.  I would be humbled to own such a blade, does she have a name?" he said handing the sword back.

Adoven looks at Domitius "oh, I'm to have competition for that title? Well enough. Rikka, I was thinking of using the Lace on a second rapier. As for the lighter material, I was considering a Mithril breastplate, if you have access to enough of the material."

Rikka looks between her two clients with a slight grin, but then responds to Adoven.  "Oh?  Do you have an over-sized rapier that you wish to use?  Surely a rapier  has the benefits conveyed by effortless lace already?"

OOC: Certainly. With Effortless Lace, the Rapier is considered a Light weapon and can be used in the off-hand for Two weapon Fighting. Moreover, Weapon Focus/Rapier would work with both weapons, as well as Finesse Training Dex-to-damage with both rapiers.

Adoven smiles, "Not all the benefits. I daresay there are few who wield two rapiers into combat."

In reply to Adoven (msg # 32):

"Indeed there are few who can wield two rapiers in combat." Rikka agrees, "And I do have enough mitral to make a breastplate.  In fact Astrane has been working on a mithral breastplate recently. I guessed that would be another item that someone might want.  Either that or a chain shirt.  So yes a Mithral breastplate is available.  The Effortless lace will take a bit longer, as I will need to research and collect the various  components."

OOC:  That is the last of the current Mithral supply.

Adoven seems lost in thought for a minute, then raises his head. "In truth, Rikka, I have a more immediate need for a Masterwork rapier with Effortless Lace than I do a mithril breastplate. While I have the gold at hand for the weapon, it will take close to a year" (two Kingdom turns) "to build and sell enough properties to buy the breastplate. As it is, most of my liquid assets are tied up in acquiring property in Jovvox, Mivon, and Zelona's keep. I fear I shall need to wait until you and I both have adequate resources to commission that particular job."

Domitius smiled and bowed "It would seems so, I look forward to testing your metal soon.  Incidentally the mithral breatsplate has proven a fine investment.  It served me well against the Peryton."

Re: Fuzzy:  Rikka's Smithy
And a new prospective customer arrived around that time --

"Hello -- I hope I'm not interrupting anything.  This fine gentleman," she nodded toward Domitius, "has told me more than once of the amazing work that comes out of this smithy.  It was past time to come see for myself.  On the topic of breastplates, that's exactly my need.  The agile sort.  Now, I have this,"

Alisa stripped away the sack she'd brought in, to reveal the breastplate that had been recovered during their last bit of work.

"It would need to be refitted, with new straps, and then enchanted.  But, I overheard you speaking about the mithral --  which I hear is so much easier to move in.  I think a little out of my price range, though?"

I believe it would be less expensive to give the existing armor a +1, rather than get a new mithral one?  Which is like over 4000 gp?

And happy to wait my turn till until other transactions finish.

Re: Fuzzy:  Rikka's Smithy
Rikka inspects the breastplate that Alisa holds up  "That isn't an agile breastplate ...  Nor was the mithral breastplate I showed Adoven."  She cocks her head sideways for a moment as she looks at Alisa, then gestures to an assistant.  "How a Mithral Shirt?  I have one about your size.  That comes in at just over 1000gp.  Another 500 for a simple enchantment (+1) ...  or a couple of thousand for  better protection (+2)   ..."

A couple of momnets later the assistant reappears holding a very fine chain shirt.  It shines brightly and shimmers,  almost like gossamer, in his hands.

Re: Fuzzy:  Rikka's Smithy
Sold! 

Alisa required no more convincing.   Though it shouldn't be any reason, it was impossible not to consider how much more beautiful it was than a breastplate.

"Yes, that's it!  I'll take it.  And please, add to it the light enchantment."

Re: Fuzzy:  Rikka's Smithy
"You want to glow like a candle, every time you put in on?  That would certainly make you the light i]of his life ...." she says  indicating Dom with her eyes.



OOC:  There isn't a designated 'Light' enchantment for armour -  the closes is this one from Weapons

quote:
Light Generation: Fully 30% of magic weapons shed light equivalent to a light spell. These glowing weapons are quite obviously magical. Such a weapon canít be concealed when drawn, nor can its light be shut off. Some of the specific weapons detailed below always or never glow, as defined in their descriptions.


The closest is a special ability called 'Radiant' - but that is a bit more powerful and costs 7500gp.


A Mithral Shirt +1 costs 1600gp using Rikka's 'one time offer' (or 2100gp without)

A Mithral Shirt +2 costs 3100gp using Rikka's 'one time offer' (or 5100gp without)

Re: Fuzzy:  Rikka's Smithy
Adoven's right --  thanks for clarifying while I was out.  ;)

By "light" I was referring to the +1 (simple enchantment, as you put it) as opposed to the +2.    I absolutely do not want glowing armor!   One of my domain abilities is a sort of limited invisibility in darkness...it would kinda screw that up.

I don't think Solanus would be very happy with that amidst their ranks, either..  I can just hear Domitius' grandfather-  "Dom, you need to talk to that woman about that armor." ;)

Re: Fuzzy:  Rikka's Smithy
"Excellent." Rikka responds, I will prepare that for you immediately.


OOC:

I am glad we sorted that out.  Part of the problem was that weapons can be enchanted to glow permanently  (as per the light spell)  and 'radiant' does something similar for armour (but is more controllable and has a twist)

Fortification (Light) is another type armour, that (basically) reduces the chance of critical hits.  Special armours can be quite complex, if you aren't familiar with them (and there is no reason why you should be)

However, and most importantly, you may add a Mithral Shirt +1 to your inventory (so long as you adjust your cash balance :p )

Yes, will do -- I need to be more up on my PF lingo --  I don't know all the official terms for this, that and the other.    But I got what I wanted.   ;)
