Episode 173: Welcome to Barter Town

First | Previous Episode Index Next | Latest

Hail friends,

Barter Town. I've hinted at it, I've shown it, and I've mentioned it in passing. The houses were being built and the town was forming. Slowly, but it was forming. "But what's the use of a town if there's no one to populate it? How will you get people to come?" the not-so-bright local asks.

(That's the fun part.)

I head to the town hall and put up a public posting of my own. You see, all you have to do is get their attention... whether they know you're doing it to them or not.

Public Posting by Chad Sexington:

"Here ye! Here ye!

We've annexed the Minoc Stables and Mines for ourselves. They now belong to us. Be Warned:

Barter Town Mines

These mines are now property of Barter Town. Their precious ores and metals are not to be taken under ANY circumstances and are off limits. Trespassing in our mines and mining our precious metals WILL result in the one of the following:

  • Your rare gems WILL be appropriated from your backpack and distributed among the valiant Barter Town citizens.
  • You WILL be killed and looted. Your body will then be placed in embarrassing positions.
  • And you MIGHT also have a very pleasant conversation with a thief.

    Barter Town Stables

    The stables are still available for public use. You'll often find a thief or two stealing from a packy. Don't be alarmed.

    Barter Town Pawn Shop

    A log cabin, soon to be stocked and sporadically re-stocked with various goods. From gems to jewels, from arties to scrolls. Very close to town guards. Shop without any risk of getting murdered. Buy [your] stolen goods [back] here.

    Between the friendly tamers, evil miners, trespassers from the north, and our own citizens, our tiny town is already very busy."

    (The locals were not impressed.)

    (And yet, the allure of the town was too great to resist.)

    (He'll be back.)

    Everything was going according to plan.

    *happy face*

    'Til next time!
