"This talk of digging up our companions for their armor is unseemly. You have had no coin for food, so my eyes will pass over it like a mirage on the horizon, but your fortunes have changed upon meeting and making compact with us. We have enough for everyone to think that they have just traded a fresh mail shirt and received coin for it. If we need more in the future, we can take jobs or kill invaders. There is no need to disturb the rest of our comrades. From a pragmatic point of view, it would be a feeble trip of much danger for merely...," he counts a bit on his fingers,"sixteen gold a piece. Not worth it, even it it didn't displease the gods."

"Of course! I did not mean to dishonor your former companions. I would simply prefer to earn my keep rather than depend on handouts, even ones from my new friends."

"I could place it on a fine silver chain for seventy-five pieces of gold. I could make a setting and hang it from a leather thong for a mere twenty-five. Coin is scarce in this land. I would gladly accept trade goods of equivalent value, such as signet rings, torcs, silver holy symbols..."
Erp

"Silver chain, please." He counts out seventy-five gold coins.

"Do you desire coin, smith? If you have supply of trade goods of value, we have coin to trade for them."

"A sensible position. But my back would break if I had to carry this coin around forever, and it reminds me too much of my lost companions. You seem a strong enough sort. Think of it as payment for sparing my back, if it helps."

He looks around to ensure no one is listening too closely, with all this talk of coin and treasure.

Ceretic the Smith

"I have these three rings that one of the gentry gave me in exchange for a large number of spearheads and arrowheads. Wouldn't mind doing a fair trade for gold or silver."


OOC:
Three old signet rings. Each weighs 10 cn. Each is worth 60 GP.

Senni
As his fellows bargain with Ceretic, Senni loiters outside the smithy, watching people pass on the bustling streets. Uncomfortable in the claustrophobic confines, he eyes the throng with suspicion, wary of pickpockets and vagabonds.
The wary watcher espies a narrow alley between two base hovels. It does not look to be occupied by any lurkers, and in fact might be an out-of-the-way spot shielded from prying eyes. Some of the passers-by look surly or even fierce, but none have the look of robbers, idlers, or furtive larcenists.

"Master Smith, do you know of any other artisans in town who would be willing to accept coin in return for rings or other jewelry?"
