  • A city's weapon shop


Red Mage Greetings, shopkeep!
My band of hearty adventurers and I should like to purchase various and deadly weapons on this fine day.
Shopkeep Then you come to the right place, you did.
Red Mage Yes, I thought so too!
Red Mage Now watch as I get us an amazing deal.
Red Mage We'd like to buy Excalibur, the Masamune, two Laevateinns, and, hmm, Durandul please.
Shopkeep Mate, I don't know what manner'a smiffy you're used to, but this here establishment don't parly in mythic items straight from the hoardy mists of legend.
Red Mage We'll take a Spellslinger's Longsword and for my shady looking friends, a pair of Maurader's Knives.
Red Mage Enchant the armored brute's Chainblades My technical and bad ass term for the lamentably named "Sword-Chucks" with accuracy gems.
Red Mage Better put Ever-Burning Double Mega Vorpal Enhancements on the lot.
Red Mage We'll make heads roll.
And burst into flames.
From across the street.
Shopkeep Look, mate. I don't need this. There's real work what needs seeing to. Now, we've got both kinds of weapons here.
Shopkeep Swords and axes.
Red Mage I should have known this was a podunk forge when there weren't any Mithril Automaton Servants.
