    Today, a stranger, Fain (please note Fain has an invulnerable 'yellow' status), was sighted near West Britain Bank selling her wares, apples and other fruits. When offered furniture to help keep her wares fresh and safe, Fain was agreeable until she spotted a gargoyle-style container.

    Fain seemed to be quite opposed to the recent opening of the borders allowing free travel of all races by Queen Dawn and Queen Zhah of Ter Mur, and was particularly opposed to Gargoyles in Britannia, implying they are 'evil'. Fain went on to explain she has filed an official complaint against Queen Dawn for 'Dealing with the heretic queen of Gargoyles without taking in account the opinion of the citizens.' This was confirmed by Corporal Brackus of the Town Guards. He assured Fain he had delivered her complaint via the appropriate channels, and has not received anything back from his superiors yet.

    Hoping to avoid potential problems for Fain selling her wares on the streets of Britain, Jordan of TAO, a Gargoyle friendly guild, and Bucko asked Corporal Brackus if a permit was needed, and if so, the cost so it could be paid. The good Corporal stated that the town official Eliar is the one who usually mandates permits and collects fees if a permit is required. Meanwhile Bucko the Kid and WildStar, Grand Duchess of Dawn, purchased some of Fain's apples (both remarking that while the apples were tasty, they were not as good as Billy Scranton's apples), while chatting with her about her feelings toward Gargoyles.

    Fain strongly encourages all merchants to come to Britain to promote selling their wares at West Britain Bank stating that she had removed the grim effigy and dead goats from the street as the stink of the rotting goats was bad for business.

    [​IMG]

    Later, after Fain left the area, Corporal Brackus reported that Eliar, the town official, had appeared at the bank and spoke with the Corporal and Bucko about the permit, and hinted at a bribe. Eliar even went so far as to try to persuade Bucko to pay his income taxes until he realized that Bucko is underage.
     
  2. I'm going to set up a table next to the bank this Friday to sell arrows and bolts starting at 7PM shard time. I might have some other things that I've had hanging around that I don't use.

    Anyone want to join me?

    Even if you don't want to buy stop by and keep me company!

    Kind regards,

    Bucko the Kid

    Hail,

    I cannot see how adding gargoyles to the trolls, ogres, ettins, orcs, etc. that roam our towns with impugnity represents any meaningful change to our longstanding tradition. However, flapping and flying, like stealing, within city and town limits ought rightly be an offense punishable by Town Guards.

    Numerous citizens have suffered headaches, nausea, with some even lapsing into coma from the incessant flapping of these gargoyles within town boundaries.

    So rather than seeing them banned from town completely, perhaps an ordinance banning in-town flight, or the requiring of a permit, a grossly expensive permit, for in-town flapping would be a reasonable, and profitable compromise.

    Ah, but I digress from the "Merchant" issue and the Bank of West Britain. I shall spread the word. Who knows, perhaps a crafter may even attend and perform some custom work for the folks.

    An SoS

    People are setting up at West Britain Bank now ... WildStar, Grand Duchess of Dawn, will be here to fill spellbooks (mage, necro & mystic) at no charge. Balian of Ibelin is at the Brit forge doing repairs. Girl Scout Marqi has Girl Scout cookies for sale. Billy Scantin is selling his finest produce.
     
  7. Thank you EM Seppo for locking down tables and chests for us! It was a fun night. My thanks to everyone that bought arrows and bolts. I sold close to 50K arrows and bolts! Now I have to get back to work and make more... what was I thinking?:mf_prop:

    Kind Regards,

    Bucko the Kid
