orig_165754.jpg

In the piedmont of the mountains on the eleventh floor, a collection of slope-roofed buildings rests on a lush, overgrown plateau. While most of the buildings were for storage of general stocked items and one served as the home of its owner, the largest stood out as a mercantile store front. While it was quite the journey to reach, the remote location protected it from any activity of the large, insect-like monsters that comprised the floor's inhabitant. 

"Welcome. Did you bring me something to look at?"

Beat ran through the crowded side street, slipping in between the small opening that the crowd afforded him. He was excited to see Shield's new shop and was equally curious as to which profession he had chosen. He thought to himself as he made his way closer. 

Man, I'm slacking on that...I need to find a mentor chef...

Soon he arrived, stopping to look at the outside of the "calculator's" shop. He read the sign and immediately looked down at his recently acquired handwraps. A wide grin appearing on his face, he quickly made his way inside, giving a small wave to Shield as he began to undo his wraps while he admired the inside of the shop. 

"Not too bad my friend. Decided on merchant I see. Well then..."

He placed his handwraps on the counter along with a few materials as he looked at Shield expectantly.

"Do the thing with the stuff."

 

OC: Will pay mats equal to number of attempts. Going until lockout or maximum crafting attempts for the day is met. Whichever happens first.

"Figures you would be my first customer," Shield laughed, picking up the hand wraps that his party member had handed him. "Well, if it's for the good of the party, I suppose I had better!"

Leaning over the wraps, he turned them over thoughtfully, inspecting their design and make.

"Alright, so this is the +1 damage item we received from the last quest. Let's see if there's anything else..."

74753 results: Craft: 5 - Try again (+4 EXP)

Squinting his eyes, he took a deeper look, but eventually, he had to sit back and shrug.

"It's not a no, but they aren't speaking to me just yet. Do we want to keep trying? I'm game if you are, but that'll probably be my last go for the day if we do, whether I find anything or not."

It was exciting to finally be established. Even though this was someone that he helped every day in combat, it was exciting to be digging for hidden treasures. Judging from the look in his companion's eyes, he knew the answer to the question. Looking back down at the wraps, he turned them this way and that feeling the edges of the fabric, trying to spot what wasn't easy to spot.

74755 results: Craft: 12 - Success! (+12 EXP)

 Loot: 14 - +1 Bleed

"Ha!" he shouted, standing up suddenly from behind the stall. "Looks like persistence paid off! You are now the owner of Rare quality hand wraps. +1 Damage AND +1 Bleed." He handed off the wraps proudly, satisfied at his handiwork. As soon as he had done so though, he felt slightly dizzy. 

"Oh man... I think that taps me out. I'm glad we got something out of it though."

He remembered that first tier occupations got a very small amount of attempts per day, but he had forgotten how few it truly was. He extended a fist for his comrade to bump in parting as he took his seat once again.

"Just make sure not to put on those wraps first, yeah?"

Beat smiled at the now red handwraps and handed his friend 2 materials in exchange after returning his fist bump, something that had become a bit of a thing between them. Fist bumping was exactly rare, but they acknowledged success and fortune with a good fist bump. He added the wraps into his inventory and immediately equipped them. They had been loose hand wrap made from an off white cloth before, but now they were a brilliant crimson, tightly wrapped without a tatter in sight. He threw some quick jabs in a mixture of series to test them out, enjoying the pressure the wraps applied to his hands in addition to adding just a little weight. His eyes twinkled as he looked back to Shield. 

"Nice! I'll have to have you try again tomorrow to see if there is anything else on these babies!" 

He gave Shield a warm salute and walked out of the store, anxious to try out his weapons on their next adventure.

Beat opened the door and the bell chime could be heard as he excited walked inside. Crimson handwraps in hand, he wondered what else would be found on them, knowing that some items were said to be secretly unique. He understood that it was totally possible that they would be stuck at a rare quality forever, but he knew he would always wonder and regret if he didn't find out for sure. At first, he didn't see his friend behind the counter so he took his time walking around and browsing the standard merchandise being sold. Most of it was pretty basic, but things like teleport crystals were offered, though the price was a bit much in Beat's opinion. Having satisfied his curiosity and expired his patience, he walked up to the counter and rang the bell as he sat two materials and the handwraps on the counter, yelling into the back. 

"Okay magic man! let's do this! Make these the legendary god hand!" 

Paying materials used in the appraisal process.

Nodding to his comrade, Shield took back the handwraps for a second time. He laid them on the table, studying them carefully, occasionally taking a corner and turning it over to examine the edge. The new crimson color was brilliant, but other than that, Shield's first attempt yielded absolutely nothing they did not already know about the items. He sighed, settling back into his stool.

"First try, nothing," he sighed, letting his eyes relax for a moment and shaking his head. "Don't worry. I'm not going to give it up just yet."

He blew air out between his lips and breathed in slowly. As he opened his eyes, he brought the hand wraps level to his eyes. This time, in his examinations, an all-too-familiar animation played in his display. A red, glowing pictograph of a padlock appeared, the bar of the lock slamming shut.

"Aw, hell..." he shook his head and passed the wrappings back to his partner and shrugged apologetically. "Sorry, beat. They're rare and nothing else. We'll get you better one of these days."

Feet plodded endlessly back and forth along the bustling street in The Town of Beginnings, and Shield watched patiently as they passes. He knew that business would invariably be slow at the start, but it looked like he was going to need to start pounding the pavement a little more. He needed experience, after all.

As the sun was beginning to set, he absentmindedly began flipping through his inventory. As the scrolling screen came to a stop, he positioned his finger over the window to continue shuffling down the list, but the words there caught his eye.

[Iron Chestplate - Mitigation 1]

It was the quest reward for gathering the boar pup tusks.

Well... today is almost over. No sense letting my crafting attempts go to waste...

He shrugged and summoned the item from his inventory, letting the metal plate armor rest on the counter in front of him as he pulled out the specialized jeweler's loupe he had just had commissioned.

Here goes nothing.

He pulled out a piece of material and watched it vanish. Then another. And another, all the while, squinting through the lens of special little instrument. He felt like he was peeling layers off of an onion with his mind, and although he did not manage to lock the item, by the end of it, he had found nothing particularly interesting on it either. He sat back into his stool and sighed.

Well, better luck tomorrow then, I suppose...

With a new day came fresh attempts to hone his craft, and the shaggy-headed, scar-faced aspiring merchant was eager to do so. Immediately, once his stand was properly opened and ready for business, he took out his chest plate and continued his examinations from the previous day, inspecting with his specialized loupe.

[-2 T1 Materials]

Spoiler

ID# 75073 results: Craft: 4 + 1 = 5 - Try again (+5 EXP)

ID# 75074 results: Craft: 1 + 1 = 2 - Locked! (+2 EXP)

At first, it seemed as if this would be a repeat of yesterday, with one inconclusive attempt leading to another and yet another, but as soon as he sacrificed the second material, the dreaded red padlock animation played in the lens of his inspection device, and the item's cap was locked as a mere uncommon.

What a disappointment. But I suppose that's just how things go.

With a few flicks of his fingers, he dismissed his trusty piece of armor and settled back in for potential customers.

It really is a shame. With only one more attempt before my cooldown kicks in, it almost seems like a waste to be here rather than adventuring or working on quests.

As an afterthought, Shield brought up his menu and searched through his contacts. He knew that Beat didn't currently have any items that needed appraisal. He had seen to that himself. Still...

What about Rain?

He shrugged and set about composing a message, seeing if there was anything he could help Rain with, hopefully to mutually benefit both players.

-1 Chinese Dao [T1, +1 Damage]

Marching right into the shop, the wanderer heads straight to the counter where a familiar face stood. "Yo, you said you needed an uncommon item?" The wanderer spoke somewhat quietly, but in a stern tone. As he spoke, he slowly raised his right hand while keeping a stoic facial expression. His eyes looked that of disinterest as he tried to look the player in the eye. As soon as he finished his sentence, he flicks his fingers in the air and opens a trade window with the player. You see, earlier he had asked the wanderer if he had an uncommon item or a rare item. He was so close to ranking up and all he needed were those items. Luckily for the player, the wanderer had 1 uncommon in his inventory. "Here." The wanderer says as he quickly presses the accept button. He didn't want anything for it. He quickly headed back out as soon as the trade was over as he has to be somewhere else already.

Shield regarded his old quest companion and nodded, gratefully accepting the transfer.

"As usual, your assistance is appreciated. Let me know if you need... any..."

But Rain was already gone and out of sight before he could even finish the sentiment.

Guy doesn't talk much... Still, he's more generous than his disposition seems to suggest. I guess he and I share some things in common.

With that, he returned his loupe to his eye to continue practicing his craft. He inspected the weapon, haft to blade, assessing the existing qualities.

It's a damaging weapon. Uncommon, as he said, with a +1. But let's see...

[-1 T1 Material]

ID# 75101 results: Craft: 11 +1 = Success! Loot: 8 - +1 Accuracy (+9 EXP)

With a start, he sat upright, the familiar discovery notification popping up in his display. Bending over forward, he continued to inspect the item to learn what exactly he had uncovered.

A +1 to accuracy as well! It's a shame Rain didn't have further use for this. It's actually a fairly balanced weapon, so far. But I'll have to wait for a bit to properly assess if there's even more to it.

Shield set out his gains, admiring the handiwork of the pieces he had acquired from Macadon's smithing shop. One at a time, he inspected them, peering through the loupe that Birdie had crafter for him. No matter how he cut it, the little success that he had managed so far from his fresh little shop was a group effort by everyone who had impacted him as a player. Even Rain had contributed items and carried him through dungeons to get him this far.

Their contributions made a difference today as one enhancement after another came to the surface. Most of the items ended up being a bit of a mix-match of bonuses that spread their use pretty thin. One, however, stood out from the others.

"This pouldron... originally Thorns 2... Now with a slot of Regen! That's an excellent piece! Even if I don't use it for long, someone will find use for it. What's its name? 'Roseguard Pouldron? Appropriate, considering the thorns, but now that it returns life to its wearer, let's go with... 'The Drinking Rose.' I like that..."

Shield took out his instruments and set out a few items for the day's attempts at appraisals: a chest plate and a set of spiked pouldrons like those he had inspected the day before. He rested the coin trinket on one arm of the antique scales and watched them settle into place before pulling out the ornate loupe that Birdie had crafter for him and put it to his eye.

The plate mail had apparently been hiding some of its potential, actually having a hidden Heavy Momentum enhancement hidden away.

"I know Beat isn't planning on using heavy armor long-term, but in the mean time, this could be pretty useful for him."

He sent his partner a message before making an attempt at the spiked pouldrons. They, unfortunately,were less generous. A red notification flashed at him through his jeweler's loupe and the item locked the second Shield went to inspect them.

"Well, you win some, you lose some," he sighed, and set aside his things in hopes of finding a few customers.

Beat barged into the shop, having received communication from Shield about needing his lucky ring. He wasn't happy to part with it, but he knew it would be coming back to him. Plus the merchant warrior had promised Beat a piece of armor in exchange. Beat did most of his adventuring along side Shield, but he knew there would be times when he would want a little extra protection in leu of some of his damage. He walked up to the counter and pulled up his menu. He retrieved the ring from his inventory and laid it on the counter. 

"Hey! I've got food to burn! Let's do this thing!" 

He would wait patiently, not truly wanting to go back to his kitchen to actually burn more food. HIs efforts in his profession had produced little edible food and it had been a discouraging beginning to his career. He had no intentions of giving up, but he found himself needing to get away to avoid feeling too discouraged.

Just as Shield finished inspecting the items in front of him, he looked up to find Beat rushing up to him. He blinked, refocusing his eyes before accepting the ring, handing Beat the one he had been using, and taking one last look at the armor.

"It's not light armor, so with your build you won't get to stack skill bonuses, but for now, as long as you're not using a shield, you get your full evasion," he assured Beat, handing over the plate mail. "It's also got some momentum to it that should carry into a few of your attacks, so make sure you take time to get used to that weight."

He equipped the new ring and gave Beat an appreciative smile.

"I'm going for a familiar next. It should be interesting. Word on the street is, those quests can be extremely short or they can take ages. However, I overheard an information broker talking about the quest, and apparently those find the best familiars are the same players who have an easier time finding materials, which means..."

He held up his hand that bore the lucky ring.

"Most likely there's a connection between a character's success on the quest and their Loot Drop stat. I'll let you know how it turns out. In the mean time, have fun cookin', Beat!"

Waving a quick farewell, he turned back to his appraisals.

As Shield set about preparing himself for the remainder of his inspections for the day, a group of young players crowded into the shop, pawing at various items. Patiently, Shield stepped over to them and got their attention.

"What can I help all of you with?" he asked politely, giving them a nod of his head in greeting.

Several slips of paper were pressed into his hand, and before long, they had found a few items around the shop that matched their needs.

Making their purchases and scampering out the door, the young players' backs disappeared into the crowd as Shield waved after them.

Alright. Back to work!

Squinting into the loupe, he put the new armor he had acquired up to the lens. He held it carefully, making sure to avoid the thorns on it. As he inspected a little golden exclamation mark leaped into view, and the new details of an extra enhancement scrawled across his display.

"Recovery, huh? That will be exceedingly useful once I start going on the offensive, which is exactly what this armor is for. Perfect!"

He set the armor aside and rummaged through his inventory for more items that needed appraising. He pulled out the spear that he had bought from Macradon. Although it was simply named "spear," it bore a +2 enhancement to damage.

"Let's make you more deadly."

Most of Shield's time in the shop was spent studying some fairly standard weapons. On more than one occasion, an uncommon turned out to only be an uncommon. In one case, his spear which he had had from the very beginning turned out to in fact be a damaging spear, but as soon as its first enhancement was discovered, it immediately became locked, unable to gain further enhancement.

He sighed, abandoning his station for a while as the bell from the front summoned him. A group of young men were looking across his shelves, and one of them seemed as if he was just preparing to leave the town of beginnings for the first time.

"Can I help you?" Shield inquired, watching the youth admire some of the better weapons on display.

"Yeah, maybe," he said, scuffing his feet on the ground. "I need something to help me in combat. I keep missing, and when I hit, I do so little damage. I'm a burden to my party, but I don't have much Col."

Glancing over his shoulder at the display shelf, he saw that the young man had been eyeing a few spears.

"Well, I have a few things that might help..."

Ten minutes later, the young man had purchased a spear and an amulet, each of which offered minimal bonuses, but for 100 Col. apiece, they each were happy with the deal. Shield sat back down to appraising, picking up the two-handed spear that Macradon had sold him. As soon as he held his trust Red Wyvern Loupe to his eye, the familiar golden excalamation mark sprang into view, but there was something new. A little notification flashed just below it in the same gold lettering.

"...Unique enhancement found?"

Shield leaned forward, selecting the notification. As soon as it opened, a series of specs scrolled across his vision.

"Blight? What does... I see... It's like bleed, but it's a workaround for things like Bloodclot that negate bleed damage. This might actually net me a pretty penny!"

He smiled to himself, excited about the new find, and he quickly set about clearing out the front display case to showcase the unique weapon. Taking extra care to position it visibly, he polished up the glass, set the spear in place, and put up details to display beside it.

"Not bad for a day's work!"

Having dealt with plenty of merchants before in the past, Seul was always eager to try out new vendors he had heard about through the grapevine. As of late it seemed like there was an influx of new shops popping up all over Aincrad and seeing as how his current gear was a result of appraisal he decided it'd be best to try his hand at obtaining some more unique gear.

Everyday Miracles. The name was fitting even if the stand itself was a little lackluster. Behind the counter was a man he had never seen before, but rather than strike up a conversation he decided to cut straight to business. From his inventory he produced five materials and five hundred fifty col coins to place before the merchant.

“I'm looking to buy some of your good quality armor to have them appraised. Ideally I'd I'm looking for unique enhancements, so if you don't have any luck you can keep the normal stuff.”

It was good that newcomers were finally starting to frequent the shop. There had been a few low level players buying generic stock, and of course Beat had made his share of appearances, but to have any other players stop in who didn't seem to be native to the Town of Beginnings was a rarity. Shield nodded, accepting his transaction before taking out his custom jeweler's loupe and and a few pieces of light starter gear from the shelf behind the counter.

Not much for small talk, this one. It's a nice change of pace from Beat's constant conversation.

He pinched the loupe between the upper edge of his eye socket and the meat of his cheek and held up each item in turn, turning them over in his hands. Before long, he had made a neat little piles of leather items with a couple others set aside. With a sigh, he straightened back up and addressed his customer.

"No luck today, I'm afraid," he admitted, holding his empty hands to either side of him in a gesture of apology. "Mostly mundane items, except for this +1 evasion leather tunic here. This pair of bracers is giving me trouble, so I can't say if there's anything special on them just yet, but for now, I would assume not."

He set aside the uninteresting pieces and held up the only real success story of the day, which was plain, but clearly of good quality with an attractively tooled pattern of leaping animals, each vaguely feline in shape.

"You're more than welcome to take the tunic with you, but if not, I'm sure it can find a home on one of the shelves if you're determined to leave it behind. And of course," he went on, lifting a finger. "Of course, you're welcome to stick around and try your luck once I'm prepared for more attempts. It shouldn't be long, actually."

Trying to keep himself busy, Shield decided that it would be best to try to examine mundane equipment. He had heard rumors of items that could be used to add enhancements on their own, so if he managed to find a unique enhancement, he could perhaps purchase or quest for the items to make an idea piece of equipment to complement the new enhancement.

He set his sights on the rack of leather armor that lined the left side of his shop. One piece at a time, he peeled back the layers to see what stories the item had to tell. A few of them had enhancements, though none of them anything particularly special. Some did not have anything, one of them proving especially difficult before it finally locked itself up.

Despite the poor luck, there was a little traffic through the shop that walked out with a few fewer col and a couple of items to boot.

It's slow, but the shop is starting to get interesting. I like it!

The rack of leather armor was beginning to look more and more daunting the more time Shield spent wrestling with it. It was over a dozen pieces of armor now that he had inspected, and there were still dozens to go, not to mention the other smaller pieces of armor that had not been displayed and organized so nicely as the vests and tunics and such that could be so nicely hung up to display.

Laying out another handful of them for today's inspections, Shield slowly worked his way through the pile, but with each new attempt, he found either no result or a very disappointing result. He sighed, setting aside his work and being forced to classify them as merely "good" items. He knew he would never make any real profit off of such items, but that was the risk of being a merchant, and he knew it.

"If the right item doesn't slide across your desk, there isn't much else to be done."
