    The evening started with EM Seppo placing vendor tables along the river bank near West Britain Bank. Goibhniu was kind enough to furnish the vendors with boxes on each table.


    The streets soon started to fill up with vendors and shoppers.


    Someone was kind enough to give little Billy Scrantin a pony! Being a very young lad, Billy alternated between selling fresh produce and racing his new pony up and down the street.


    Bucko the Kid was on hand selling arrows and bolts. I did notice that after every sale, Bucko would sneak over to where Girl Scout Marqi was selling Girl Scout Cookies!


    Corporal Brackus was seen running in excitement over being given a slab of bacon.


    Many familiar faces appeared throughout the evening.


    As the evening was winding down, a Town Official made an appearance trying to collect taxes:



    As Bucko the Kid and Billy Scrantin are underage, they are not required to purchase permits even though the Town Official wants to argue that Billy should be required to have one as he is sent by his parents to peddle his wares. WildStar proved to be exempt from the tax as she was filling spellbooks at no charge. The Zoo raffle sales were also excluded from taxing as that is a promotion for a non-profit organization. The Town Official even tried to impose a 'Death Tax' on those who had died within the city during the past month! Ultimately he had to leave empty handed as no one there met the criteria for taxing. Before leaving the area, the official left a copy of the the Sales Permits law:

    Sales Permits
    By Eliar and Elias

    This document, article 54138.22b-1, has been prepared for citizens who are interested in selling wares within the city of Britain.

    Let it be know that any and all merchants plying their trade in the town of Britain are expected to register for the proper sales permit with the town officials. All sales are subjected to the standard sales use tax rate enacted by writ town law. Continued sales without a proper permit may be subject to fines, and in extreme cases, possible arrest and jail time. These writ laws were enacted during the rule of King Casca and will continue to be enforced until Queen Dawn, or a representative of the Crown, repeals the requirements of proper sales permits.

    Please seek out town officials, Elias or Eliar, to obtain the appropriate permit for the small cost of 15 gold pieces.

    Currently operating without a proper permit:
    1. Billy Scrantin
    2. Fain

    Town officials,
    Elias and Eliar
