Stalls lined the street with an assortment of goods, the air filled with a mixture of the smells of various foods being cooked and people bargaining and chatting.
“High quality weapons for sale! Dont let that old rusty blade hold you back!” Varian shouted out as he sat behind a wooden stall, various swords, axes and maces placed on top of the counter and a chain scythe hanging from the stalls wooden roof along with a few weapons leaning up against the back side of the stall. Behind Varian sat a forge with its fire still burning and a hunk of metal sitting on the coals slowly heating up “I also take custom orders!” Varian shouted again trying to attract attention to his temporary buisness.
“How much for the broad sword” a man clad in an iron breast plate asked
“mmm, for you ill make it a special deal, 30 silver coins” Varian replied
“Too high, too high, at best it looks like a 13 silver piece” The man fired back with an offer of his own
“Ha! Are you eye's going bad? Look at the sheen of the blade, its sharp enough to cleave a man in half and tough enough to not even chip from it... 18 silver, final offer” Varian shot back with a comment and offer of his own, a few moment later the jingle of coins could be herd as a sack of coins hit the top of the stall. Varian picked up the sack and counted the coins and smiled as he handed the man his new sword 'Thank you for your business!” Varian said as the man walked off in the direction of the arena.

Scarlet walked the street lined with stalls, her eyes watching and observing the people both making deals and sitting at their stalls, however Scarlet found that in this particular city she stood out like a sore thumb, her pitch black armour was far more different than the armours and clothes that other people were wearing, Scarlet shrugged her shoulders as her shoulders were a little sore from carrying her weapon around, however Scarlet stopped when she saw a stall with a forge behind it, Scarlet thought about whether it would be worth her time to take a look but curiousity got the better of her and she approached the stall, Scarlet then looked at the man before she said.

"I see you've got a forge, tell me do you think you can repair my weapon?"

Scarlet reached behind her and took her Claymore off her back before putting the point of the sword into the ground while she leaned on the blade, though she made sure the blade was at an angle where the man could get a good look at the blade, the blade had scratches and dents, there were bits missing on both the handle and the blade making it clear that the weapon had already gone through quite a few fights.

"hmmmm" Varian looked over the blade and then held both hands out "Well let me get a closer look" He said with his palms facing upwards over the stall. Scarlet at first was a bit reluctant seeing as how heavy her blade was but soon picked it up
"Careful, its heavy" she said as she gently laid down the hilt in the mans left hand and the flat end of the blade in his right hand, as she took her hands away the blade and the mans hands dropped a few inches as if surprised by the weight of the blade at first but it was only temporary as the man brought the blade closer to him and looked up and down the blade slowly using his right hand to slide up and down the blade tracing the dents and scratches.
"I can repair it, it would cost about 7 silver coins and would be ready for pickup by tomorrow, is that acceptable?" Varian asked

"That works for me, is there anywhere specific I need to go in order to pick up my blade? Or do I just come back here tomorrow?"

Scarlet asked as she stood there with her hands together in front of her as her eyes watched the man with her blade, Scarlet then realized she needed to get the money and so she reached behind her to grasp her money pouch, Scarlet then took out the money that the man was asking for before she placed into onto the table before moving her hand away and she smiled politely.

Varian picked up and counted the coins and smiled "Thank you for your patronage... as for where you can pick up the finished product... Would the bloody scabbard tavern be okay?"
"That'll do nicely, I thank you for taking the time to fix up my weapon"
Scarlet said as she bowed in respect to Varian, before she stood up straight and smiled, Scarlet turned and was going to leave, however she stopped herself and turned back to Varian as she said.
"I'll see you in the tavern tomorrow, have a good rest of your day"
And with that Scarlet finished turning away and walking away, however as Scarlet continued on through the city she wondered what she should do next.
"Now then, shall I get to work?" Varian said as he turned to his forge and pulled out a hammer from a pack sitting next to him

It wasn't until the sun started to set that Varian had finally finished the repairs, he pulled the sword off of the anvil and quickly dipped it into a vat of oil sitting next to him, the oil hissed and flamed up a bit as it cooled the blade reinforcing its strength. After pulling the blade from the oil and looking over Varian nodded to himself as if approving the product.
"All thats left is a bit polish and a grind to make sure its shiny and sharp" He said to himself as he turned to his stall, most of the weapons had been sold so only a single short sword remained "I think I made out pretty well today if I do say so myself, guess I should-" Before Varian could finish voicing his thoughts a young man with brown hair ran up to the stand
"Just in time!" he said as he grabbed the short sword and held it up

"Hey-" Varian started to say something as he stood up but was once again cut off by the young man
"How much" The young man asked
"mmmm for that shoddy thing? ill give it to you for 9 silver" Varian replied
"What? I've only got 4 silver on me" The young man retorted
"No deal then" Varian shook his head
"Wait wait wait... My names Kashin, I am working for a local scholar that plans on visiting some ruins in the desert, we are heading out tomorrow and I dont have a weapon" Kashin quickly tried to salvage the deal "He is paying me but not until we get back, I can pay you then"
Varian just sighed at the comment "Sorry, but I don't take i.o.u's, im sorry but you will have to find someone else to sell you a blade"
"No one else would, look, I mean it I can pay you back... or maybe you can come with? ill split the payment with you say 7:3?"
Varian stood there rubbing his chin for a moment "Fine, but its gonna be 6:4, and ill sell you the blade for 2 silver"
"Great! we leave tomorrow afternoon, my client has some matches at the arena he wishes to watch before we head out, we meet at the east gate 4 bell rings past noon" Kashin said as he tossed two silver coins onto the table and ran off waving as he disappeared into the town.

Varian just shook his head as he turned back to his forge and with a clothe started to polish the blade he had been working on.

It was the next day when Varian, with a familiar face headed towards the east gate.
"What a coincidence though that my client from yesterday is on the same job as myself" Varian said to the women walking next to him "I wonder how big this expedition is though" Varian wondered "Ah yes, how is the blade, I forgot to ask but is everything to your liking?"
Scarlet nodded "It is just fine, thank you"
"No no, thank you for your patronage" Varian said as they came up ont he east gate, outside of the east gate was a small caravan of two wagons and yet again another familiar face
"Ah! Mister!" Kashin said as he ran up "Glad you came... I was nervous is was just gonna be me on guard duty but then more people started to show up!... whose the lady?" Kashin asked looking at Scarlet
"Another guard... I guess this expedition was a bit bigger than you expected?"
"Yea, seems like we are still missing roughly half of the people but they should show up fairly soon" Kashin said "So be ready to leave within the hour"
"Will do, well then Scarlet and Kashin I look forward to working with both of you, now if you dont mind me, Kashin can you show me to your client I would like to get to know who im guarding if possible" Varian asked as he excused himself, both him and Kashin wondering over to the Caravan.

Thurstan walked over to the east gate, realizing he forgot a pack of smokes. He bought it and was about to walk back out to Zewar, when he noticed a group of people. He looked at them and took out another smoke and sat back to watch them.
