"No sir." Richard replies with an apologetic shrug, making a note to collect spent brass from guns from this point on, could probably net him some money or whatever. And more money or trade fodder could get him more resources, ammo and the like.

Nodding, Richard brings out five trade coins out of an inner pocket close to his chest for Bill to inspect, it was his way of reducing the chance of getting a pick-pocket getting away with his money. The other three coins stayed in the pocket, he had to keep some in reserve, especially as he needed them for the inn he would patronize later.

The fat man carefully pulls out a set of scales and weighs them, drops them in a cup with graduated marker lines.

"Seem seems good..." he looks up. "Alright then. A dozen rounds you say? One for 12... black powder, lead tips..."

Note: Black Powder Ammunition is useable by most of the more "rudimentary" firearms like revolvers, shotguns and some manual action rifles. It's cheaper but it is harder on the weapon.

Trader Joe mumbled his thanks and smiled almost drunkenly as he lead his horse Bob into town, towards Shaundi's.

It was time to get some work, get some money in his pockets.

"Fine with me." Richard replies with a smile and pays the shopkeeper the necessary amount of coins. One coin for twelve black powder rounds for his revolver, which to him sounded like a good trade. Still, there was one more problem. "By the way, do you sell gun maintenance kits?"

There was a slouch and considering eye as Trader Joe spent a spell wandering the area towards Shaundi's. Keeping a eye out for any finical opportunities that he could take advantage of. Hopefully there was something, a knowledgeable looking sort of chap or perhaps someone that looked like they meant business. Or if all else failed, he could try a backroom sort of deal for the first few days.

"Why indeed I do..."

He pulls out what looks like a small bottle of cooking oil, a small bottle of spirits, a metal rod, horse hair brush, a wire brush, and a metal rod...

And smiles.

You want to argue a price?

You make it there pretty quickly. Shaundi's seems to be built out of an old duplex house. One of the doors is board over with a large wooden sign that of course says "Shaundi's"

Three-four coins was the maximum he would try to spend on the kit, Richard had decided, but since the storekeeper didn't name a price yet he would try to haggle it down. He didn't have a job yet, so his spending should be minimized as much as possible.

He walks into what looks like... well... a bar.

All of the servers are female and all of them are very pretty and not wearing much.

It stinks of tobacco and marijuana smoke and behind the bar is a very pretty girl who seems to be serving drinks and taking hits off a home made hooka.

It's pretty much an old parking lot where you see people have set up stands. There's several other stands there, most sell junk and one of them has a pretty nice van and... well... you've ever seen so many books in your LIFE.

On the far end you also see them assembling what seems to be a stage. If you had to guess, looks like they're going to be having a slave auction.

Trying and failing to clear the smell from my nose, I figure I could try and figure out what this place really is. I find a seat if I can, order a drink and try to figure out what this place really is mentioning my personal quest and who suggested this place.

Nodding, Richard pays out the requisite two trade coins for the gun maintenance kit and collects it, after which he asks the shopkeep if he knows a good inn he could stay in.

For a moment Richard thought of asking for an another inn as this "Shaundi's" sounded more like house for "entertainment" than an inn, but he reconsidered it. The shopkeep probably wouldn't appreciate his "prudishness" or whatever. So, after getting the directions to Shaundi's and politely thanking the shopkeep for selling to him, Richard set out to the inn while flipping on his hood as a matter of habit and to lessen the itching.

As he went towards the eponymous inn of Shaundi, he tried to estimate the time of day. Did he have enough time for questioning the locals about his parents, or would he have to retire to his room in the inn and perform some probably badly needed maintenance on his own gun?

The latter is mildly interesting, the former though ... books are always a good source of income, and the sheer amount of revenue sitting there ... well, it's impressive. My pace slows, then stops, as my eyes go from one spine to another, scanning what titles are still legible. And looking for whether or not they have any copies of the particular cookbooks I found in stock.

You don't see any copies of your cook books, but you do see that he has doubles of a number of books.

A large man with a goatee in a brightly colored floral shirt walks up to you. He has a paper umbrella in one hand and an extremely large handgun on his hip.

"Hello, sir. Something I can help you with?"

"Two more where that came from. I was going to keep one on me and see if I couldn't leverage it with an innkeeper or actual cook, but I guess I could be convinced to part with the lot of it," I hedge a bit, smiling. If he makes me a good offer, well, that'll be another story and I still have that bottle of vinegar and toaster oven.

I'm not even going to mention the repair manual though.
