    So, I'm checking out Goblin Markets for Changeling: The Lost...
    It lists the value of the memory of a day at a favorite museum as two dots. So you could theoretically trade in a good day out for an untrained human slave or a two-dot token. I fully plan to abuse this. I know my ST has bought Goblin Markets, so I'm just going to have my character go to seaworld every day, saving up for the day I finally stumble across the market.

    A spider scared to death is worth 2 dots. Assuming spiders only have 1 health, you can easilly scare one to death by using the Mein of Baba Yaga and rolling at least 3 successes. Of course, this costs you 3 glamour and a willpower point, so you can't exactly go about it all day long, but you could probably get at least one a day and maybe more if you're days are eventful enough.

    you'd need to have GOOD days at a museum.

    if your storyteller's sharp, your days will get progressively worse.
    plus, that would be boring. logically, your memories of it would get lower and lower in quality.

    the most you could do would be having a few good trips, trading in the memories, then having a good clue left behind (a picture of yourself having a great time at seaworld) to motivate you to make more good memories there.

    I can see it now. A bunch of seaworld employees greeting the guy by name, assking him how everything's going. He's done this so many times now that he's a prefered customer and gets special treatment. All the while the employees pity him for the strange mental condition that seems to prevent him from forming new memories. He never remembers any of their names and he always asks the same questions does the same things every time. But in a way, they envy him. He always manages to enjoy himself. He always manages to capture the excitement of the place as though it was his first time.

    This needs some rite proper writefaggotry.
    I can see it now, one of the antendees falls in love with him and agonizes over how they can never be together. How he can never even remember that time she confessed her love for him behind the seal tank. Each day she must make him love her anew, and each night he forgets.
    And somewhere sits a hob, idly sipping the memory back, letting it swirl in his brain like a heady wine as he revels in the confessions of love, of the longing glances and heartfelt moments, of the delights and sorrows of unrequited young love.
    And somewhere out there is a different changeling, who just wanted to experience a day at seaworld... who finds himself now in love...

    I would assume so, if one were available to buy.

    somebody'd have to be MAJORLY desperate enough to trade an education like that despite the ripping-off they'll get.

    I'd be more interested in the side-memories of college, like the love interests, friends, etc...

    you buy this massive education and suddenly, the next day, you see your sweetheart from college walking down the street. you try to say hello, but she doesn't recognize you, etc...

    Just think, though, with a single decision, to not sell his day once again, to choose love over trinkets and baubles, our prospective wheeler and dealer can have the girl.

    Of course, by this time, the second changeling has her love mired deep within himself, each memory purchased adding fuel to the fire, each one a new telling of the same tale, over and over so many times that when they finally cease, he can't tell what part of it was a second-hand memory, and what was real. And so, he goes off in search of his lost love, recalling every nuance of their time together, not realizing that it wasn't with him...

    Goblin Pledge is a Merit in... I think Rites of Spring.

    And then the blind guy could probably sell "A blindman's sight" or "the memory of the first sight of a man born blind"

    You forget, this is Changeling. You could always trick that blindness onto someone else, or you could always use it on yourself, because you're sick of dealing with the world.
    I wouldn't doubt if people would buy and sell blindness and sickness.

    It'd be like a drug.

    Every day he agonizes over the choice. He spent most of the day doing it. Some girl was flirting with him all day, and she seemed really nice. Everyone was really friendly and he had a great time... Its a memory he doesn't want to give up...
    Maybe... maybe he'll just keep this one...
    But then he looks on the mantle... and sees the smiling faces of all the men and women and children he's freed... and he looks down and reads the thank you note left by little jenny... and... and it just isn't fair...
    "I'm sorry Marry. I think... I think I may love you too... though I've only known you for a day... but love is selfish... and this is something only I can do. Wait for me Marry... Maybe next time I'll remember you."
    and with that he squares his shoulders, straightens out his ears, and steps through the rusted gates into the bustling crowd of the market.

    Mermaids might not be valuable as pets but they are as ingredients, eating their intestines is said to give humans eternal youth.

    Could'nt you theoretically just buy up one high value item (A dragon for instance) and then just harvest it's components? I mean, dragon scales and dragon venom and dragon eggs and dragon dung and all that stuff is probably worth something, right?

    If the cost it'self isn't a burden, then either the purchased item is, or the person who bought creates one.

    You sell off your addiction, and a rival buys it to use on a friend. Or the person who bought it only bought the addiction, without any of the drawbacks, so until you find them and get them to quit, you feel the withdrawl constantly.

    Or maybe someone working for a food company buys the addiction, and makes it an ingredient for their new line of food - and because it's your addiction, you are the only one who can break the habit of hundreds of thousands of people.

    Generally, selling something bad for you should probably result in you having to do the equivalent work of cleaning up the mess, and suffering the misfortune and then some.

    I like the merits that basically let you be one of the merchants at the market with a stall and everything. It seems like it could make for a fun character.

    I just wonder how much commitment would be required. Seems like it could eat up a lot of adventuring time.

    Wonder if touhofag would be willing to crack a shot at minmaxing the ultimate goblin vendor changeling.

    What would be the value of...
    - A life unlived
    - All memories of Arcadia
    - A Fetch's Shadow
    >> Anonymous 09/19/09(Sat)21:45 No.5930344
    All memories of Arcadia would probably be countless dots, but it would probably also turn the victim into some sort of insane changeling monster.

    I would allow this.

    Unfortunately, it's painfully likely to become a story hook.

    A hated memory of Aradia is a 4 dot value actually. All would probably be worth a ton, but leave you somewhat out of it...

    Congratulations, you have forgotten you ever made the trade and the dealer tells your amnesiac ass to fuck off. Or he sells you instead.

    plot hook!

    the game begins. You're standing in the goblin market. A goblin merchant says "and that concludes our transaction" before walking away.

    you have no idea what he's talking about.

    Oh my fucking god yes. This is the best way to start a campaign fucking ever.

    Rules of the market, he's got to uphold his end of the bargain.

    Oh, that makes it even better. So you'll wind up getting "gifts" from people that you don't know anything about, and being in the goblin market, it's not wise to accept things proffered to you lest they have a hidden price attached... and as long as you keep rejecting them, they'll keep coming... and coming... and coming...

    I am offering my next changeling group 8 dots of value at char creation to spend at the market if they accept my offer of "come on... be an amnesiac... I'll make it worth your while..."

    Except that 50 pennies are inherently less valuable than 50 quarters. You have enough of those memories to trade, they're going to start asking you for something else after awhile.

    If he keeps selling his memory each time though, they'll all be like freshly minted gold coins.
    I like how you can use this system to creativly raise attributes and things in ways other than by spending experience. Really fits with the whole whimsical maeliability that is so Fae.

    Alright /tg/ lets think up shit that isn't terribly unobtainable if you think about it, but seems pretty odd at first glance. If anyone wants to try and guess a price at these, be m guess.

    -Hair of a bald man.
    -All the black keys of a piano.
    -The last leaf to ever fall from an oak tree.
    -The boots of a dead man.
    -Gun of a fallen soldier

    Two across the board, though the piano could be one instead, it's borderline.

    I'd rate them all as one. They're all curios, but nothing entirely out of the ordinary. Some might have some portentiusness to them, but they're not like, a vampires fang or a witch's broom or something like that.

    Ok, I've decided that I'm gonna use the local Gob market to gather up ingredients for making hedgespun items.
    My question is this: What are the values of such hedge-centric, useless-on-their-own items like a whisp of eternal smoke or a spider's web made entirly of dewdrops? Together I can assemble them into something powerful, so I don't think they'd be value 0, but at the same time it doesnt seem right to have them be value 1 or above.

    One for each, more for the final product.

    A pair of trainers sell for ten times more than the products used to make them.
