Andor's End (IC)

 Nestled inbetween four mountains the village of Andor's End is a busy place.  Races from all over travel through it or to it, as it is in the exact center of all the kingdoms.

Street merchants hauk their wares from dawn to dusk, and the den of noise can almost be deafening.  In the north sector of town is the heart of the political center.  You find such places as the town hall, mayor's office, Sheriff's office, and the courthouse.  You will also find the more wealthy people's homes.

In the east is the market square, with all sort of businesses including where the street merchants will be found.  There are blacksmiths, general stores, and the like..as well as the merchants guild.  This is where you go to buy things.

The west of the city is the slums.  Here, if you know how and where to look, you can find the thieves guild.  It is the poorer section of town, and the buildings are getting old.

The south is where you will find "Mama's Pub".  It is the only pub/inn in the town..which is unusual for such a large city.  It is also the place where you enter the city from, and has places which offer tourist info, maps, and the like.

"Mama's Pub" is a rather large pub, and the upstairs is used as an Inn by "Mama".  The pub consists of one long bar, with about twenty tables in the main area.  It is always noisy and full..day or night.  No matter what time of day it is, you will find "Mama" behind the bar.  A large woman, who's age is indeterminable.  As long as Andor's End has been here, people remember Mama being here..and she seems to never change.

Your characters have come to Andor's End seeking adventure and fame..and everybody knows that if you are an adventurer seeking employment.."Mama's" is the place to go.

The door to the pub opened, and in came a man named Austin. Then he went back out a bit. His face went into a scowl as he reached back, and straightened his staff so it didn't get caught by the doorway.

After entering once more, he walked over to the counter. He reached into a pocket, and pulled out a few gold, and set them down. The keeper looked at him for about 5 seconds before asking, "What is it you want?" Austin pointed at a drink, then moved his arm so it went across them all, and then shrugged.

"You want a drink, do ya? Fine." The keeper walked off, and soon returned with something in a glass. Austin took a sip. He had better, but it wasn't bad. He had tasted several different foods and drink in his life, since he couldn't tell people exactly what he wanted, unless he could see it, and point to it.

While taking sips of his drink, he gazed around, looking at what was going on. Perhaps something interesting would happen.

"Well, well, well... Ain't this the most crowded place...", said Arian as he watched the market district looking for something valuable. "All fruits and vegetables here. I'd better find some kind of a smithy to see if I can grab a good weapon", he thought as he was walking down a street. From all sides, various traders could be heard advertising their goods and offering good prices.

"Exuse me, sir. Could you tell me where the smithy is?", Arian asked a passing man.

Austin

As Austin sat there taking in the atmosphere, a rather large woman wearing an apron and carrying a dust rag, comes to clean the bar near him.  "Son, you look as out of place as a Paladin in a cathouse..now don't mind mama..she isn't busting your chops none.  Whats a sort like you doing in a place like this?" She has an old face, it is hard to place her age.  She has kind eyes, but her face shows those lines of a person who can get serious if she needs to.  "You one of them adventuring types?  Come to see what mama has for you to do?"

Arian

For the most part you are ignored, completely. The ones who don't ignore you, look at you as if you have two heads, and THEN ignore you.  A few even just pump you out of the way, hurrying to whatever important destination they are headed to.  Finally an old sea dog comes over.  "Depends a what yer looking for.  Smithson over there is kinda new, but he can a make whatever ye yearn for.  Blackforge there..he makes shoes, nails, and anything but weapons.  A bit more experienced then Smithson, but he canna make a weapon to save his life.  Hammersmith there..well he be the opposite. He makes some mighty fine weapons, but he is mighty poor at ta general everyday stuff.  Smithson is cheaper then both ta other two, him being new an all."

"Thank you, kind sir", said Arian.

Not wasting another moment, he started looking for Smithson.

Jeddite moved in to the tavern in a weary and practiced manner. His cowl was drawn over his head, and by his movements it seemed that others knew what he was. Oh, and the whole monk get up was probably a help as well. He entered the tavern without a word, sitting down at an unoccupied table without even bothering to order food or drink. How would he pay for it anyway?

Arian

As you head off the old guy says something a bit cryptic.  "By tha way, ifn ye plan to ply your trade..ye best get yourself over to Dever Street an register." If you turn to talk to him, he is gone.

You get to where Smithson smithy is.  The smell of melting iron mixes with the smell of fish and fruit from the stalls not far from him.  It is not unpleasant, but not the best smell either.  As you get close to the forge the temperature rises.  A rather large man with arms about as big as your legs, wearing an apron and wielding a hammer is pounding on what looks like a horseshoe. He is maybe 6' (a very unusual height for this time, so he is about a head taller then those around), and looks almost tan..but it is probably more from the soot and heat of the forge that causes him to look like he looks.

Jeddite
After you sit, you notice a sign up on a board.  "Wanted: Guards for a local mining company.  10gp a day plus expenses, inquire with Mama if interested" this is also illustrated, and in a couple of different languages.

Austin smiled as he pictured a paladin in a cathouse, questioning his faith. After Mama mentioned Austin looking to be an adventurer, and asking if he had come for such a task, he nodded to her, and moved his glass in a cheers motion. Whether the motion was in addition to the agreement for the adventure, or he was saying he also came for the drink was anyone's guess.

"Holy mama's beard! This ain't no human, this is a beast! No way I'm gonna steal anything from this fella. Well, I have to play good around him. Else I'll replace that anvil he constantly smacks with his hammer..."

"Ahem! Mr. Smithson, I assume?", Arian said.
"Aye! Who's askin'?", Smithson replied.
"My name's Arian. I'm interested in your weapons as I've heard that they're the best in here."
"Let's just cut to the business, right? What are ya looking for?"
"Oh, yes. Well, I want a decent shortsword, but I can't spend a lot of money, so how about I do you a favor?"

Austin

Mama chuckles. "Ain't much of a talker are you?  That's alright Mama can talk enough for the both of us.  I think I have something right for you." She finishes cleaning, supplies him another drink.  "Don't worry that one's on Mama." She sizes him up, and he gets the eerie feeling she can see right into his soul.  "A local mining company needs some guards..been having trouble being raided by a group of orcs.  It's easy enough work, and they are paying good." She slips him a very easy to read map.  "You need anything, you just let Mama know."

She makes a motion with her hand, and for some reason he can understand what it means.  "And if anybody gives you trouble, just bring em to Mama, she'll set em straight."

Arian

 He looks over at you.  "Alright, I think I have just the task to cut you a deal on a sword.  I'll make you a personalize one for half price, and all you have to do is go get my cargo from the docks.  Expecting a delivery of metal, and it will be days before I can go get it with all the orders I have stacked up.  Find Bart at the quartermasters in the doc, tell him you are coming to pick up Smithson's metal.  Fair enough?"

"That's fine by me", replied Arian, "I'll find Bart and tell him that you want your metal. See you later."

Arian slowly exited the smithy and headed for the docks.

Austin looks over the map, then gives Mama a nod in thanks. He stays a while longer, finishing his drink, and then heads out, following the map's directions.

"Hmmmm..." A job would be rather nice, and the payment was rather small considering some of the other job posters hanging around here... yes, he would take this one. It would be the perfect chance to better himself. Jeddite walked up to the bar, staff quietly marking his measured pace as he asked, "May I see Mama about a job?"

Arian

The task is simple enough, finding Bart is easy, and he sends one of his helpers to help you (it is a two man job to pack up everything, and unpack everything).  Plus since he doesn't know you from Adam, he wants one of his people to keep an eye on you.  Not that you could take anything from this shipment.  The ore and metal is rather heavy, and the value is small, not something a thief targets.  You return to Smithson and he does something kind of odd.  He has you heft some of his shortswords, until you find two that are about right.  One slightly heavier, one slightly lighter.  Then, he has you swing each several times, watching you.  It takes some time, but he makes you a very well done shortsword.  It is the perfect weight, and special made to fit your style.

((You get a +1 when wielding this weapon.  It can not damage creatures only hurt by +1 or better weapons, and anybody else uses it .. it is just an ordinary short sword.  They get no bonus with it.  As promised it cost you half what it would have to buy it straight out))

Austin

You arrive at the site specified on the map, and you see a rather large tent (suggesting it is where the manager would be found.  Standing outside is a dim looking giant of a man.  Easily 7', maybe more..must be part giant.  He looks as if he is on guard duty.

Jeddite

The bartender nods, and raps under the bar.  A few minutes later 'Mama' comes up.  "How can I help you sweety?" The way she says it, it is obvious that it is not meant to offend.

Austin walks up to the giant of a man, and smiles at him. He shows him the map Mama gave him, hoping that it might show reason enough of why he is here.

The guy looks at the map for a moment, then looks at you.  He nods slowly, and points inside the tent.  "You go there." His speech is .. of somebody who has never really heard the words he says.  You quickly realize he is deaf.  Wouldn't have mattered much if you told him why you were there, he would never hear a word you said.  Once inside the tent (if you go into the tent), there is a portly balding man looking over some paperwork.  Much of the paperwork has numbers on it, and might as well be written in ancient dragon for all the sense it makes.

"Mama sent another one has she?  Good, good, she has an eye for sending only the best." He greets you warmly enough.  "Here is the deal," he doesn't give you much time to get a word in edgewise, even if you had wanted to.  "You go in, guard the miners going in and out, and make sure nothing goes missing.  10 gold a day plus expenses.  Any questions?"

Arian got a hold of his new sword. A true piece of work it was.

"I don't know what you did, or how you've made this sword so easy to wield, but I have to say 'great job'. Here is your gold."

As he was leaving the smithy again, Arian smiled. "Who would've guessed that being good has a good outcome... Well, time to get myself a drink."

As you walk into the bar, the scene is pretty much as described before, though right now somebody is talking to a rather large woman behind the bar about a job.

Mama sends only the best? Well, hopefully. He was only now starting out on his adventures, and would love to eventually prove himself one of the best. He looked around, listening as the man finished upon asking if he had any questions, he looked upward, and pointed. He arched his hand in the direction the sun would travel.

He looks at you, then goes out and drags the big guy inside the tent.  He looks to you "Now do that again for Barl.  He can't hear a word, but he understands gestures."

Once you repeat the gesture, Barl nods.  "I think he wants to know how long he works in a day."

"From sun up to sun down, with an hour lunch around noon."
