>Previous threads at suptg>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Racketeer%20Quest>Twitter, @Loli_KaleunFor once, you wake up before Tear. You idly wonder how you were able to wake up early without external prompting, before noticing the midday sun outside your window.Apparently you didn't wake up early, Tear just slept in. REALLY slept in. You might want to ask her bout that later, but she's snoring pretty heavily right now. Might like to let her rest.You roll out of bed, and find that Louie is absent from his bed. You grab the clothes you discarded on the floor.>Dress in your new super-short skirt and long-sleeve jumper?>Dress in your regular clothes?Heading downstairs to find Louie, you discover... the store is empty. Louie is nowhere to be found. A single unwashed plate in the kitchen suggests he grabbed a simple breakfast.It's already midday, you've lost your entire morning shift, but you still have the afternoon to do with as you please.>Wake up Tear, ask her what's up?>Go searching for Louie?>Open the store?>Other?
>>32125019>Regular clothes>Wake up Tear
>>32125019>>Dress in your new super-short skirt and long-sleeve jumper?>Other?Make Tear brunch.
>>Wake up Tear, ask her what's up?Make sure to touch her glittery wings while she's still asleep.
>>32125019>Dress in your new super-short skirt and long-sleeve jumper?>Open the store?
>>32125019>Dress in your regular clothes?>Wake up Tear, ask her what's up?
>>32125019Once more, you're keenly aware of how little of your thigh the skirt of this get-up covers, but if you're sticking to the store and not moving around too much, there shouldn't be a problem, right?You amble into the kitchen and throw together a quick brunch of fried eggs, cold ham, sliced apples and bread before carrying the plate back upstairs to the sleeping Tear. With a light nudge, you fail to rouse her. You nudge her again, and elicit a groan. Exasperated, you put the plate carefully down on the bed and shake her awake.After the second violent shake, her eyes shoot open as she comes to. "Aahh! Wh-what? What's goi-" She spots you, and relaxes. "Oh. Good morning, Recette.""Morning? It's already midday. How come you didn't wake up, were you out late last night?""Hmm? Oh... yes. There was some," she pauses, searching for the word, "business, with some of Terme's competition that needed my supervision. It kept me up a little later than anticipated. However, with any luck things should run somewhat smoother in the coming days."Her eyes betray just how exhausted she really is, you wouldn't be surprised if you could push for more information and get it before she realized what she was saying.>Ask her about the business?>Ask her about something else?>Touch glittery wings?>Eat brunch, move on with the day?
>>32125524>Touch glittery wings?You can't give us this option and not expect us to pick it. That's just unfair.
>>32125524>Touch glittery wings?>Ask her about the business?
>>32125524>Touch glittery wings?didn't even read the other options
>>32125524Feed her and help her freshen up for the day, then>>Touch glittery wings?Ask her if it's important and/or relevant to US.
>>32125524Damn nigga, that a lot of wor->Touch glittery wingsYes.
Inb4 erogenous zones.
>>32125524Her tiny head tips forward again, a half-asleep daze to her features. As she does, he wings once again splay out before you, and you can't resist. You quietly reach up and around behind her, running a finger gently along the tip of one of her glittery fairy wings. A shiver runs through the length of her body as she lets out a quiet moan. The unbelievably thin membrane of her wings, lined with tiny blood vessels so similar in appearance to those of an insect, are still amazingly strong. They don't actually bend or fold under your fingers despite you increasing pressure a little. You run your fingers the entire length of the crystalline surface of the wing. As you bring your fingers away, you feel a faint tingling in the tips, and realize that a small layer of glowing dust has accumulated on your fingers.You bring your other hand around and once again gently stroke the tips of her wing, again drawing the pleasured groan from Tear. Suddenly, her eyes flick open as she apparently regains full conscious thought. "Ah- RECETTE! Please stop that! My wings are not your plaything!""Sorry, Tear. I couldn't help it! So, are you awake now?""Y-yes, yes I am. Now, shall we move on with today's schedule? Eh, what is today's schedule?>Open the store?>Go looking for Louie?>Go dungeon diving? (Send out a request for Caillou or Charme with the Guild)>Other?
>>32125892Open the store, we haven't sold skite in a while.
>>32125892>Go looking for Louie?can't really do much without our sla... err, bodyguard
>>32125892>Open the store?
>>32125892>>Other?Eat and discuss with Tear what to do today. Anything urgent?Else,>Open the store
>>32125943This while continuing to touch glittery wings
>>32125892>>Open the store?
>>32125892>Lick glowing dust on your fingertips, suggestively
>>32125892>OtherLick fairy dustGet high as shit.
>>32125892"Hmm, I don't know. Was there something urgent we should've been doing?" You pose the question to her, while gently placing the plate of food before he and helping yourself to an egg as she finishes coming to her senses."Not that I can think of.""Alright then, I guess we'll open the store for the afternoon. Whenever you're ready, I'll be downstairs!You grab a slice of apple and head down, leaving her to wash and dress before joining you in the store. You flip the sign to [OPEN] and take up your usual position behind the register, feet lazily resting on the counter.>Gimme some d10's for customers!
Rolled 7, 8, 3, 5, 3 = 26>>32126168Rolling 5 times, whoooo!
>>32126182>>32126197>>32126201Sorta, triple sevens! wooooooo!
Ahaha. I'm tempted not to take this first roll >>32126182 as one of your (limited) customer rolls. Just because the same customer three times (especially THIS one) is just damned cruel.
Rolled 4>>32126168LICK THAT DUST BABY
>>32126230>triple 7 isn't something extra luckydisappointing...
>>32126230Do it, I liek pain.
>>32126230Seems like a very good opportunity for Plot! Doooo iittt!!!!
>>32126168The door chimes as your first customer of the day arrives.You look up, eager to greet your firs- oh. It's her."Heeeey there, short stuff. Listen, I just got my hands on this ah-MA-zing artifact, and I think you definitely need to see it.">How do you greet her?
>>32126350"Hello, my sweet, what do you have for Momma?"
>>32126350"oh, you? sure, show me">what could go wrong?
>>32126350aha. aha. ahahahahHAHAHAHshe just HAAAD to be 7...>Let her do her spiel, then ask her to come forward, grab her by the collar, and explain how hopelessly stupid her entire modus operandi is, and how it would be much more profitable for everyone involved if she had a bit more....perspective.
>>32126350OH FUCK NOT HER. RECETTE-O YOU HORRIBLE OP
>>32126350>Shank herWe are a horrible shopkeep.
>>32126518You've met her like once before, anon. A bit quick to pass judgement aren't you? Don't be like the anons antagonizing the little girl for no apparent reason.
>>32126579...dah, I suppose you're right. Sorry, seeing her first thing in the morning got a knee-jerk reaction out of me.>I suppose a sigh is more reasonable?
>>32126350"Oh you do, do you? What you got for me now?"She approaches the counter, grinning merrily. "Well, you see I got this," she produces a tiny little music box. Her confident smile seems a little shaken when you show no enthusiasm for the piece. "This... is an antique music box, this! It's real old but listen, it still plays perfectly!" She winds up the little lever on the side of the box and opens it. And, indeed, a sweet little tune starts playing from it. You wait for the tune to finish playing, and her to close the lid before speaking."Okay, so it was a nice sound. How much?""300,000 pix. It's a bargain, really!">?
>>32126350>Squint carefully, "Charme, is that you?"
>>32126615give her a disappointed look and say something like "look, this looks pretty nice, but if it's worth 1.000 pix..."
>>32126615get tear's opinion on it"I dunno, let me call in an expert and see what she thinks of it"
>>32126615I really, really want to do >>32126518, but that can wait until she tries her 2nd or 3rd deal and Recette gets exasperated.>Squint at her face. "Do you not understand the exchange rates for pix or something?"
>>32126659>>32126688Don't do this, seriously. She hasn't done enough to warrant her death, yet.
Alright, so we've got two votes for shiving her, two votes for calling her on the insane price, and one for summoning Tear.I'm erring on rolling with the non-violent approach and calling her out on it. If there are objections, speak now.Writing.
>>32126771Non-Violent then.Add mine for Tear.But shiv if she haggles the insane price
>>32126771I'm objecting, because you could at least semi-honour the first requests by implying Recette really wants to shiv her or something. Seriously dude. You can't force your players to play your way.
>>32126803it's just not IC to shiv her...yet
>>32126829This is true. It is however, in character to lure her out back THEN shiv her if she keeps trying to rip us off. Not lethally, just some minor poking
>>32126803>You can't force your players to play your way.More the fact that if two votes are for violence, two votes are for one non-violent solution and another for another non-violent solution, that's a 2:3 split on violence vs non-violence, so of the tie between the two best votes, then by taking the other votes into account, more players would be appeased taking the non-violent approach.
>>32126855I'm all for that.
>>32126829Plastic spoon! Stab her with a plastic spoon! Everyone wins!
>>32126855Why would we shiv a customer. That hurts profits. Delicious profits. Plus, a non-lethal shivving means she tells people we shiv people that don't offer the right goods or some other rumor shit, and that's *awful* for business.No, sir. We have to put up with this until we become powerful enough that she could have an "accident", and then those things become an option. But not now. And not for a long time. Not if they're paying customers. The shop is sacred. Profit is sacred.
>>32126869Stab her in the eyes with a plastic spoon>Racketeer Quest Prison Edition!
>>32126865Yeah, but it'd be funnier and more abrubt if you stabbed her with a plastic spoon. Recette is both funny, AND abrubt! It's perfect!
>>32126896>loli prison questyou'll have to make it happen someday [x] drop the soap
>>32126933Follow Loli Stalker quest and see... ^^
>>32126882I don't think she ever pays. Maybe we should offer something as well, to see if she can even be a customer?
>>32126615You lean across the counter to squint, looking her dead in the eye. "Do you... not understand the exchange rates for pix or something?"The smile is still fixed on her features, but isn't holding in her eyes. "I- don't know what you mean.""Look, this is a pretty little trinket. And it plays a nice tune, but 300,000pix is insane. I might offer you, say, 1,000pix. If you really bargained for it.""Tch," she clicks her tongue at you, "I get it. Your store's just too good for my 'trinkets', huh? Fine. I'll go. See if I can find someone who really appreciates a fine bargain like this."She storms out of the store.A few minutes later, Tear finally flutters down the stairs. The store is finally starting to liven up as regular customers come wandering in and out. "What was that noise about?" Tear asks you innocently enough."Oh, it was just that girl from before. The one who tried to charge extortionate prices. She was offering a music box.""Hmmm?" Tear's interest seems peaked. "I assume she was overcharging again, and we didn't buy then?" You nod confirmation. "A pity. I haven't seen a working box for many years. Though, with their going rate of half a million pix, I don't even want to imagine what she was trying to ask you for it.">?
>>32127025Look at her blankly for two seconds.Fucking sprint after her OH GOD WHAT HAVE WE DONE
>>32127025...we should have stabbed her and kept the box...
>>32127025mutter about crazy collectors"Why hasn't anyone made new music boxes?"
>>32127025Well played. But seriously, boy who cries wolf and all that is kinda bullshit.
>>32127025run after hertell her we're sorry and after checking, her price was... acceptable, and we're willing to buy
>>32127099This is probably the smart thing to do.
>>32127025Late to the party, but Recette should walk out after her, and tell her that she's sorry about the incident inside. You really want to help her out, but you can't fathom paying 300k for such a little thing. Offer her 100k.
>>32127025You stare blankly at Tear as one heartbeat, two, three, four beat deafeningly through your brain."LOOKAFTERTHESTOREI'MGOINGOUT" you shout at her as you break into a sprint for the door after the girl.Why couldn't she be more reliable!? You wouldn't have turned her away if you knew..!You pass a score or so of stores as you belt down the road into town before you notice that you're getting rather a lot of looks from the folk on the street. You slow to a jog, trying to fathom what is so interesting about you, then notice they're all looking dow-You stop on the spot, pressing both hands down to push your fluttering skirt back over your underwear. Cheeks burning hotter than the Sun, you take one last desperate look around, but can't see the girl in the crowd. Embarrassed and dejected, you make your way back to the store, Tear giving you a questioning look as you enter the store.[1/2]
>>32127281SO, those other 2 sevens...
>>32127281You refuse to answer her stares, instead setting yourself back up behind the counter. After barely half an hour, you catch a glimpse of the girl outside. She's eyeing you up from the street, apparently not willing to re-enter your store.>Go out to meet her?>Wave her in?>Ignore her?
>>32127401>Cry deeplyThe go out to meet her.
>>32127401>Go out to meet her?make sure Tear stays around
>>32127418>>32127401>Cry deeply.We guilt her in to entering.
>>32127401If we try to run out, don't notice her, get embarrassed about our dress, then go back in, will that convince her to enter the shop?
>>32127401You step outside, waving to her in greeting. "Hi again, uhm. I'm sorry about before. There was a misunderstanding. I didn't really think that little thing would be worth very much. But we reevaluated, and we'd like to make another offer if you'd still like to sell."Her eyes dart open in surprise. "What? No. There was an old fella down the road, he said it was an amazing piece and bought it from me on the spot."Oh. You missed the chance, huh? You know that's how it goes sometimes. You're not going to cry about it. You're not. These definitely aren't tears you feel pricking your eyes. Who would cry about one missed sale? That's just silly, right?A hand suddenly lands heavily on your shoulder. "Heyyy now, don't be like that. There's plenty more fish in the sea, right?" He eyes flash mischievously, "although, if you're interested, I have a lot more trinkets that you might like to buy.">?
>>32127401>Go out to meet her?I feel like this girl is not trying to swindle us as much as just throwing out random numbers for items that she has no proper value for. If anything I think she is just a super inexperienced and has no idea what she is doing.
>>32127522"Show me whatcha got."It would be rude to come crawling back and then bail again like a jerk.
>>32127522"well, come on in then, i'll keep my expert around">fuck, why isn't Louie around...
>>32127522>Bring her inside. Make sure Tear is around to prevent screwing up again.
>>32127522Bring her inside first and have Tear examine what she has.
>>32127522Im still generally suspicious about her. The chance for the big payoff is still too risky. She doesn't deserve the shiv, but I disagree with dealing with her type.
>>32127522Tell her the bottom price of the item she probably sold for a dime and a nickel. Invite her to join us in the despair corner.
>>32127655I'll second this.
>>32127622Look, I'm just gonna say it now. I'll be the first to recommend we shiv the bitch every chance I get. I think it could be funny if she gets poinked in the gut with a plastic spoon or... Oh my god... Shiv her with taiyaki...
I'm writing the next bit, but this is longer than anticipated. Please wait warmly.
>>32127522"Okay, okay, why don't you come on into the store and we can talk business properly?"Her shark-like grin stretches across her face again as she follows you back inside. You walk her to the counter where you can have Tear overlook whatever transaction may or may not be about to happen."So, what've you got for us?" You ask bluntly, trying to keep your features blank. You're not sure if you're embarrassment from earlier, your desire for a good deal or your distrust of this girl is winning over right now."Well," she opens the little bag at her side and reaches in, rummaging for something, "I have... this!" And she produces a small porcelain doll. "These used to be all the rage, right? But no-one makes them anymore. So they've become a collectible item!"You look to Tear, who nods silently, confirming that this much at least is true. "So you can sell these on to collectors at huge profits!" She accentuates this statement with a broad wave of her hands."Okay," you respond, "so how much do you want for it?""Hmm, well I was thinking 150,000. And that's with my first-time buyer's discount!" Again, you look to Tear. She hovers closer to whisper in your ear."Perhaps a quarter of that would be reasonable. They are indeed collector's items, but no-one would pay that much for an old toy."You nod slowly, careful to keep your expression neutral at this information."For a transaction this large," you state, "I think we should go into the back room. Care to follow me?"She follows you readily enough, that grin still plastered on her features. As soon as she's past the threshold into the back room, you let the door to the store fall closed, and bludgeon her over the back of the head with your concealed taiyaki.
>>32127942She should have stayed trueful bitch.Now we get ganked.
>>32127942Yes... Yes... YES! SHIV!
>>32127942I love you. I really mean that. I would suck your cock as long as you aren't fat and unnattractive.
>>32127942>your concealed taiyakigood god this is so funny and stupid.
>>32127942As she lays, stunned on the floor, you drop the taiyaki and grab a wooden spoon from your utensils drawer and straddle her back. "Wh-what? What are you doing? Gerroff me!"You pin her hands down with one hand, and with the other you drag her shirt upwards to reveal the smooth skin of her back to you."You may not remember," you tell her calmly, "but the first time you came into my store-" you run the edge of the spoon along her flesh, finding the bite point, ready to dig deep "-I promised that if you returned again, I was going to butcher you and bake you into a pie for insulting my intelligence."She whimpers under you, flailing a little but unable to move properly with you atop her. "It seems to me that baking your entirety would be difficult. So I'll only bake a little bit of you this time. You only need one kidney to survive, right?" You let the spoon start to press into her flesh. "Hold still, or this will be much messier than necessary.""Please! Please no, I'm sorry! I'm sorry I'll do anything please NO PLEASE DON'TBAKEMEINTOAPIE!">?
>>32127942What's a taiyaki, if yo don't mind me asking?
>>32128026I think she got the message. Have Louie drag her into the woods.
>>32128038This. >>32128026Demand that she becomes your slave.
>>32128026That's right. Time for actual BUSINESS, bitch.
>>32128026go through her stuff.Buy all her stuff at a slightly less than reasonable price, but more than she would probably make if she sold them herself.
>>32128038It's a fish-shaped cake popular in Japan. Usually filled with red bean paste, but also commonly filled with custard or chocolate.Recette is quite partial to them.
>>32128038isn't that some kind of sauce..? >>32128064oh... hahaahaha
>>32128068I guess this?
>>32128048>>32128026Wait, wait! Don't do that. You should force her to become your stockgirl. Pay her in crumbs of walnut bread and beatings!
>>32128026I say we ask her why she keeps high balling all of her prices and explain to her that this kind of thing doesn't fly well in merchant circles. Also, some actual business.
>>32128048But anon, we don't know where Louie is right now.
>>32128171That's why I changed my mind and suggested we keep her as a slave. That's 2 votes for slave, right?
slave>>32128193>>32128122actual business>>32128152>>32128096actual BUSINESS?>>32128068>>32128104is this right?
>>32128245There's a third vote for slave. And here's a fourth>>32128067
>>32128026 this sounds great >>32128122
>>32128274I change my mind. I vote slave, too.
>>32128287>>32128274>>32128245So overall, five votes for slave, two for actual business and two for serious business?
>>32128311you only have 2 real votes for slave
>>32128026"Anything, hmm? Well, how about we do some actual, legitimate business?""Alright! Alright, fine! I won't try to scam you anymore, I promise!"You retract the spoon from its place between her organs and let go of her arms. She collapses to the floor in a relieved mess as you stand up, brushing yourself off in a return to dignity. You pick up the small bag from where it'd fallen and rifle through it, looking for anything of actual value."Trying to rip off the merchants around here is a terrible idea," you tell her. "They don't take kindly to it. You should really think about that. It might make you a quick buck if you manage to scam one, but they can get really rough if they catch you afterwards." You take the doll from the bag and place it on the table. "For the trouble you've put me through, I'm keeping this. Otherwise..." Nothing else in the bag is of any real value. You could probably scrounge two to three thousand from it all together.>"...Actually, I'm keeping this whole bag.">"...You can keep this junk.">"...I'm buying this junk from you for 1,000pix, total. Feel lucky."She rights herself, thanking you for the 'kindness' of sparing her, taking the bag back from you.She looks to be trying to slip back out the door now that she's free, but you stop her with a few more words."Additionally, from now on you're going to be...">"...my stock girl. Find me good trinkets, and get them to me for a reasonable price. We'll both profit from this.">"...my personal slave. You're staying here and waiting on me hand and foot. Whatever I want, you're going to do.">Other.
>>32128381You can keep this junk and you can be my stock girl. We already have one slave with Louie. Don't be stupid.
>>32128381>>"...I'm buying this junk from you for 1,000pix, total. Feel lucky.">>32128381>>"...my stock girl. Find me good trinkets, and get them to me for a reasonable price. We'll both profit from this."
>>32128381 Los canos es dos? Stockgirl slave second Louie is my vote.
>>32128381>"...I'm buying this junk from you for 1,000pix, total. Feel lucky.">"...my stock girl. Find me good trinkets, and get them to me for a reasonable price. We'll both profit from this."Feels a little cruel to turn her into a slave. Stock girl is probably more profitable anyway.
>>32128381>"...You can keep this junk.">"...my stock girl. Find me good trinkets, and get them to me for a reasonable price. We'll both profit from this."
>>32128381"...my stock girl. Find me good trinkets, and get them to me for a reasonable price. We'll both profit from this."She nods at you, hefting the still-full bag back onto her shoulder."R-right. That's easy enough, yeah. So I just do what I normally do, and you'll buy my stuff from me? This is gonna be a whole lot more effort," she mumbles to herself, "but I- I guess this idea IS more reliable than trying to get money with just one pitch. Real work, huh? Funny."She makes her own way out of the store as you return to the register.The next few hours drag by with very little of interest happening. A few regulars make some stops, and you sell them a few small-time items at a little over their base price. It's a profit of a few hundred pix all told, but nothing you can really bother to think about after the amounts you've been dealing with these past few days.
>>32128381>"...You can keep this junk.">"...my stock girl. Find me good trinkets, and get them to me for a reasonable price. We'll both profit from this."Slavery is probably not gonna work.
>>32128693As the afternoon is drawing to a close and you're thinking of closing up shop, the girl once more appears "Hey hey, me again. Uh, I forgot, we never actually introduced ourselves. I'm Euria.""That's true. Well, I'm Recette, and that's Tear," you gesture to the fairy floating her way around the store, making small talk with one of the older customers, "of Recettear. That's the store.""Heh, okay then, Recette. I have something that may be interesting to you." She holds out a purple and gold hairband. It looks really quite pretty, and fashionable enough that it's probably worth quite a bit. It somehow looks familiar to you, but you can't quite place it."Stuff like this are selling in the girls' fashion stores down the road for thousands!" Euria exclaims to you. "You can probably sell it off for at least five. But for you, I'll let it for for, oh, two thousand. That's good, right? How about it?">Take the offer?>Haggle?>Refuse?
>>32128699>Slavery is probably not gonna work.Nope. Slavery isn't as easy it might look at first glance. If you have a society around you with laws enforcing slavery it can work for individuals who have the resources to feed them. But we're in a society that doesn't tolerate slavery, so we're stuck enforcing it ourselves, and that just takes a lot more force than we have at the moment. Terme has enough goons to totally-not-enslave Recette and call it a debt, but we only have one goon who also comes pre-packaged with a sense of morality.
>>32128856>>Take the offer?give the dog a bone
>>32128856"Hey, Alouette wears one like that! Wait, did you get this from a legit source? I so do not need her rich ass hating me even more right now"
>>32128856Take the offer. We really roughed her up and now it's time to gain her trust. Then we exploit it.
>>32128956Hmmm good point. bring that up.
>>32128856Two thousand is a drop in the bucket at this point, let's be nice and take the offer as is.
>>32128856"This looks like the same one a girl I know wears..."
>>32128956yeah, we can ask this before buying
>>32128885I'm not sure exactly how fleshed out the game-world is, but seeing how it's a fantasy setting, and you have Louie, and Recette's whole debt thing, it's pretty obvious power and naivety are the daily specials. You exploit cute little girls, and make money off of them. That's slavery. Just not modern slavery. It's more like medieval slavery.
>>32128856You look at the band for a long moment, trying to place where you've seen it before. It definitely looks like it's been worn at least once. "Wait, did you get this from a legit source?"She coughs twice, "heheh, what d'you mean by that? Of course I got it from a source."You narrow your eyes at her. "Yes. But was it a legitimate one?"Her face contorts into a scowl, "what does it matter to you? I know as well as you do that most of the stuff in this store is stolen or taken from the dead!""That's not the point," you counter, "A girl I know wears one that looks just the same as this, and I SO do not need her rich ass hating me even more right now."She grumbles something that sounds like an affirmative. You jostle her lightly, "say that again.""It's not legitimate," she admits. "I took it from that rich bint when she was trying out a new one in the store. I bet she hasn't even noticed it's gone yet." She pauses, then fixes you with a curious eye."Wouldn't this be a good thing for you, anyway? Stealing from her? I mean, her father is the one competing with Terme right now, right? Starting all these turf wars?">Response?>What will you do with the band?
>>32129215I think it's time we show her the spoon again.
>>32129215>and what good does bullying a spoiled rich brat do me? that's not profitable, you gotta think bigger.Also, what part of "Trying to rip off the merchants around here is a terrible idea," did you not get? I should really just report you now and get some brownie points from her.
>>32129215Is Aloulette or however you spell her name, scared of us? We basically attacked her with a hoard of slimes.
>>32129215God damn girl, I am trying to like you but then you pull this shit. Take he into the back give her a sound spanking and tell her to return it.
>>32129215Let's take it just for the sake of having something of hers. We're not selling or displaying it though. Just keeping it. But remind the poor girl to be honest with us in the future so we can be proper friends.
>>32129328Probably, but we haven't seen her since then.I think we should take the band; we just have to not put it on display so she won't see it.
>>32129215>Response?Give her a spanking.>What will you do with the band?Take it from her to return to its owner. We'll make up some story for her about some street urchin who stole it.
>>32129215"You are too smalltime to be thinking about stuff like that. No starting turf wars unless I say so."Keep it, don't sell it. If she comes looking for it say we found it and give it back.
>>32129328i'd think more along the lines of furious. Expect her to finish putting a gruesome revenge any day now.
>>32129215Impress on her we're willing to do some shady shit but only if we think we can get away with it. Stealing something off a mega rich loli does not count.
>>32129349>Take it from her to return to its owner.Let's not. We have a store to run.
>>32129349No. You can make up stories if you want, Alouette has no reason to believe them and will simply accuse you of having stolen it. It might have sentimental value however that you can use against her.
>>32129215"What part of 'trying to rip off the merchants around here is a terrible idea' did you not get?" You snatch the band from her, "I'm taking this, but I'm not paying you for it. I'm going to give it back to Alouette, and you're going to get me legitimate goods. Or at least goods that won't dump me in all kinds of trouble if I tried to fence them!" You sigh in exasperation as she gives you the puppy-dog eyes."Back room, now." You point, as if ordering a naughty dog to its basket. She obediently steps through the door, and you shut her in. "Oh, you are going to get SUCH a spanking when I get back."You take the hairband in hand and make for the door. "Tear, can you mind the store for a while? I need to go deal with this?""Of course," comes her calm reply, "but don't take too long. I'm an adviser, after all, not your wage slave." You let the door shut itself behind you as you step out into the busy streets and head for the tailors' street, where with any luck Alouette will still be shopping.
>>32129613We are the best boss ever.
Rolled 17>>32129613See you next time?Else, rolling for luck search.
Alrighty, that's it for tonight, folks. I need to get up in a few hours for work.If the thread's still live when I get to work (which I doubt), I'll see if I can't throw a few more updates in throughout the day. If not... eh, I'll see when the next thread can go up. Probably next week.I would offer to stick around for Q&A as usual, but like I said. Need sleep. Please use the rest of the thread for... whatever is desired. If there are questions, I'll try to get to them either tomorrow if the thread's live, or during/after the next session.Thanks for the fun thread, everyone! And as always, thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.Hope to see you all next week!>Captcha: bedtime Les

Thinking of Reccette licking Tear's fairy dust resulting in her getting horny and spanking her minions before sexually abusing them and Tear makes me moist.
>>32129978>Thinking of Reccette licking Tear's fairy dust resulting in her getting horny and spanking her minions before sexually abusing them and Tear makes me moist.I don't- n, I...No, I'm going to bed.
>>32130077This is the future you chose.
>>32130077I am perfectly okay with this for the record.
>>32130077You heard me.
>>32129978That's not adorable, anon. Please try to be more adorable.
>>32130077Let's make this happen.
>>32134315Chaika, bad for heart.
Heading off to work in a few.Will drop a few updates when I have a chance.
>>32129613Reaching the tailors' street, it takes you mere moments to find the girl. Firstly, there's no way she'd be in the poorer stores, so that precludes two-thirds of the stores. Secondly, all the store windows are wide and the floors open-plan, meaning a glance through the windows tells you who is in each of the stores. Thirdly, there's a large crowd gathered around one of the stores, where she's apparently throwing a tantrum.Through the excited mutterings of the crowd and the glass window of the shop, you can't make out what she's saying, but she's screaming loud enough that it's audible even from here.Inside, Alouette is facing down the store clerk, screaming in incoherent range, the tears welling in her eyes threatening to break free to stream down her face.>Go in? She's creating a scene, you should calm her down.>Wait here? This is sort of amusing, and she is your rival after all.>Other?
>>32135832>Go in? She's creating a scene, you should calm her down.We can't have our rival making an idiot of herself. That'd reflect poorly on us, when we grind her into the dirt.
>>32135832>Go in? She's creating a scene, you should calm her down.Calm her down. Its all good, okay? Let take her to get some ice cream after this.
>>32135878Also, we should get some bloomers. Or at least classier panties, if we're gonna keep flashing the entire town.
>>32135934Oh crap, are we still wearing that entirely okay and non-offensive outfit?
>>32135832>>Go in? She's creating a scene, you should calm her down.>>32135934Well jeez, it's not like anybody forces you to put on a miniskirt in the morning you slut. And why would you even wear bloomers with that, it'd look stupid as hell.
>>32135953> our slut wear.Not really. Recette kinda pure.
>>32135832You decide that your self-proclaimed rival causing a scene like this may not be in your best interests, and make your way through the crowd to the door. As soon as you open the door, her voice rings out clearly into the street for all to hear."-like there's anywhere else it would be! We're the only people in the store, and it was RIGHT HERE!"The clerk is cowed under the vehemence of Alouette's assault, and his half-formed protests do little to allay her anger."Hey, Alouette!" You shout your greeting to be heard over her tantrum. Her eyes go wide as she turns to face you, something like relief on her face."Recette! I-" the relief suddenly evaporates, replaced with a cold and dispassionate glare. "What are you doing here? there is no way a plebeian like you could afford a store like this. Why don't you run back to your little item shop and mind your own business?"You open your mouth to respond when she tips her head back to look down her nose at you. This motion brings her eyes down to the hairband in your hand, however, and she freezes."Wh-where did you get that?">?
>>32136075"Some street urchin came in to sell it. Of course, I knew it could belong to no-one but my rival. You, Alouuette."
>>32136116Fucking sticky "u" key.
>>32136075[x] >>32136116It's even pretty much true!>>32135953I never voted for it, dillweed. But since people seem so dead-set on running about in it, I'd like to at least mitigate the embarrassment a bit.
>>32136075this sounds perfect: >>32136116
>>32136177Then wear leggings or something under the skirt instead of drawing further attention to the problem by wearing hueg underwear. Seriously, you'd look so stupid I can't even explain it.
>>32136283I assumed he was thinking more pic related.Indeed, larger/classier underwear would only exacerbate the problem.
>>32136325Oh. Okay then, sure. Totally not what I think of when someone says bloomers, but I suppose that can work pretty well. Go for it if you want, or just go back to the old outfit and keep this one for capitalistic ADVENTURE.
>>32136325do it for sure, unless there's a +2 ring of magic skirt somewhere.>>32136116seconded
>>32136075"A street urchin just came into my store a few minutes ago and tried to sell it to me," you tell her. It's a mostly true statement. You don't know where Euria lives, so she could be an urchin for all you know. She's certainly not of citizen quality. "As soon as I saw it I though 'I know this hairband.' And I was right, it's your, isn't it?" You hold the band up to her, waiting for her to take it.She looks down at it, then back up to you, an uncomprehending look on her face. She looks down to it again, before jumping forward to grasp it, tearing it from your hands.She stares at you suspiciously as she clutches it to her chest. "Well, thank you, Recette. I'm... surprised. I'd have expected a heartless merchant like you to simply find a new customer and sell it on. I am grateful you decided to return it, however."She looks disdainfully to the clerk, who has collapsed in relief behind his counter now that the anger is no longer directed at him. "Well, I can be certain I won't be providing my custom to this store in future, if they cannot even keep my possessions safe during my visit."Without further ado, she walks past you and off down the road.You follow her out, sighing to yourself. That's one less problem to deal with.While you're on the tailors' street, a thought hits you. If you want to wear this skirt more often, you might want to do something about this certain... problem.Looking up and down the street, you spot a practical clothes store and a classy lingerie store.If you're going to keep flashing your panties to your neighbors, perhaps you should at least invest in some more attractiv-You blush furiously at the mere thought of it, instantly scratching the thought from your mind.You could invest in some shorts to wear under the skirt, you guess. Or you could ask around the magical trinkets sector and see if someone could charm your skirt to keep your modest or something.>Go for shorts?>Try a magical fix?>Deal with it?
>>32136406>>Go for shorts?>>Try a magical fix?when in doubt, get both
>>32136406>Go for shorts?No heretical solutions, just wear some goddamn clothes. It's not hard.
>>32136406>Bug Alouette about itmore running oh no how terrible
>>32136419To elaborate, when we walk around, the magic skirt is in effect, but if someone tries to look up the skirt deliberately or dispells the magic, all they get is shorts.
>>32136406>Go for shorts?This is the sensible option. Like maybe some kinda hot pants. Because:>>32136325Don't look comfy at all under a skirt.
>>32136406Awww. Alouette a cute. I bet she has some sorta connection to that hair band. Like her gramps gave it to her for her birthday right before he died or some-such.
>>32136406>Go for shorts?well, these buruma things, i guess
>>32136406You make a quick stop in the practical clothing store and pick out some shorts to go under your skirt. A pair of form-fitting pants that would be considered decent even if you weren't wearing a skirt over them, short enough that no-one will be able to tell you're wearing them until they would otherwise be catching you at a compromising angle.Pleased with your new purchase, you head back to the store at a merry jog, letting your skirt billow freely.Tear greets you when you arrive back at the store and jerks a thumb at the door to the back room. "What exactly do you intend to do with our newest acquaintance? We can't rightly keep her locked in our back room for eternity.">(How) Do you want to punish her?
>>32136771Well, we're already here, so...>spank her with the taiyaki>make her explain her "new" methods for getting trinkets that will not involve headaches>make her eat the taiyaki
>>32136771Go in. Draw shiv. Explain, in simple terms, that we owe a very large debt to a very scary man, and that we do not want to have to deal with obstructions that might make it harder to pay off that debt.Any obstructions we do run into will need to be removed. Surgically. And since we don't really have any scalpels lying around, we'll just have to make do.
>32136771>Give her a good spanking
>>32136771nah, we're good this time, but she'll have to be careful where she... gets her stuffoh, and tell her she owe us half a day of work for all the trouble she did
>>32136771Spank her with the taiyaki and explain to her that the trouble she caused cost us a half day of work.If she continues to increase her debt to us, she'll have to make the difference by selling her parts baked into a pie. Let's start with the kidney
>>32136771I like this >>32136795
>>32136795lol I like it
>>32136771Well spankings have been promised. So yeah that.
Wait, what? How do you even spank some one with a taiyaki? That doesn't work at all.Just do it manually. And tell her we are very disappointed.
>>32136935>Wait, what? How do you even spank some one with a taiyaki? That doesn't work at all.That's exactly why it'll work.
>>32136771You step into the room and find Euria waiting patiently for you at the table. "So, what happens now?" She glares sullenly at you."I give you your spanking is what," you tell her. "Bend over."She stares at you as if you were crazy, but when you repeat the instruction, it dawns on her that you're being serious. When she bends over the table, you walk around in front of her and unbuckle both your belts, using them to quickly and crudely strap her arms to the table legs, causing her to splay out over the table before you. Nodding in satisfaction, you move around behind her and retrieve your taiyaki from the floor."W-wait, you can't be serious!" she exclaims as you wind back your arm to deliver the blow.Your answer comes in the form of a taiyaki smashing into her buttocks. Of course, a sweet cake was never going to make for the best tool of punishment, and the poor little fish explodes on contact, splattering red bean paste all over her butt and lower back, as well as smattering a light spray over your table and flooring. A short squeal of shock, followed by angry protests from Euria are your reward.You drop the fish tail on the table beside her with a sigh."Listen here. I owe a very large sum of money to a very scary man. Anything you do that stops or slows me from making money is a very bad thing for me. So in turn, I'm going to make it a very bad thing for you."With the cold threat in your voice, you silence her protests.As she remains still, tied to the table, you look around for another instrument to deal out the punishment. "So, in order to avoid this situation, why don't you explain to me your NEW methods for getting me stock?"[1/2]
>>32137234You fail to find anything that wouldn't be likely to leave permanent damage, and resolve to simply use your palm instead. As you line up for a second shot, "a-alright, I'll make sure it's safe next time! I'll only pick up stuff people aren't going to miss!"SMACKYour palm stings with the impact, but the squeal of pain from the girl tells you she felt it worse. "And what if they do miss it? What happens when they come to me and find I've got their stolen goods?""Out-of-town folk, then!" She tries another tack, "no locals! If they aren't from around here, they won't track you down, right?"SMACKShe jerks forward against the table away from your hand, but the belts keep her effectively immobile. You consider for a moment. "Yes, I suppose that would work. So long as they don't stick around to hunt for it. But that does of course limit how much you can get for me."SMACKHer tone turns to begging as she continues, "there are other ways! I have contacts, I can get stock for you!""Good, good," you murmur in satisfaction, "I think that should be suitable. I'm glad we could arrange serious business like this."She breaths a sigh of relief.SMACKHer entire form tenses against the pain as you abuse her again. With how raw your hand is feeling now, you wouldn't want to be in her position."Wh-why? What more do you want!?"You tilt your head quizzically. "What do you mean?"SMACKShe chokes out a plea, "I said I'd change my ways! Please don't hurt me anymore!"You pause your beating for a moment. "Oh, you thought I was beating you for that? No, I promised to punish you.""That's enough, right? You've made the point!""Well, I guess that's true." You smile gently at her. "But I'm rather enjoying this."SMACK[2/3]
>>32137352Man it sucks that Charme's missing this.
>>32137352Eventually growing tired, and not wanting to hurt your hand any further, you unbuckle Euria from the table and belt them back around yourself. You leave the girl a quivering mess on the table and slip back into the store, a warm and tingly feeling still rushing through your body.It's late in the afternoon, but you still have much of the evening ahead of you.>Open the store again?>Close up for the day, get an early night?>Go looking for Louie?>Relax around the town?>Other?
>>32137424>Go looking for Louie?seriously, that worries me
>>32137424>Open the store again?
>>32137424>a warm and tingly feeling still rushing through your body.oh my>Other?go recruitin3 should be a good number for cleaning a dungeon quick and easy.
>>32137424>>32137352>>32137234Wow, this Recette is fucking mean. I didn't expect this quest to try to compete with LSQ on sadism.Let's ask Tear about Louie before wandering off to look for him?
>>32137424>Open the store again?We lost a lot of time on Euria, let's make some money now.
>>32137502I would disagree. She takes joy in punishment, but most of what's been done is in the interest of profit for everyone.
>>32137512If by "everyone" you mean herself.
>>32137518Charme is profiting from this(tentatively)Louie has a bed and homecooked food;Euria gets more consistent salesAllouette...I'm so sorry
>>32137424>Open the store again?Louie should be able to look after himself.We should get worried if he's not back by the nightfall.
>>32137424>Open the store again?Please to be selling items now.
>>32137512>She takes joy in punishmenSo sadism? Fuck, all Euria did was step into the shop and try to sell some items and Recette just decides that makes the girl her property and she can just drag her out back and start beating her? That's not in anyone's interest but her own, nobody how much you pretty it up.
>>32137601and the stealing?
>>32137601>tries to scam Recette>gets told not to try it again>tries it again>steal's Alouette's shit, which could cause problems for RecetteNope, Euria fucked up. Recette did nothing wrong.Except waste that taiyaki.
>>32137601Trying to scam someone isn't simply trying to sell some items. Fraud isn't tolerable, neither is stealing.
>Having to work at work sucks. I need to win the lottery or something so I can be a NEET and quest without interruptions.>>32137424You thank Tear for watching the store for you, then take up your position at the register once more.>Gimme some customer rolls! d11's this time!

Rolled 8>>32137796It's not like we could handle 'friendly' encounters any better than 'bad' ones.
>>32137701>>32137687>>32137637God forbid anyone ever try to scam you guys so you'd have to physically abuse them and force them into unfavorable employment. I mean really, you'd have no choice to do anything but that, right? I think I read a passage saying so in the constitution.
>>32137732In the slow afternoon, you sell little. A few items of your clothing stock get bought by a young girl trying to look good for a first date on a budget, while some jewelry gets scoped out by a middle-aged women, though she declines from purchasing.As you're starting to fade into the monotony of the day once more, a familiar face brings you back to attention. Alouette storms into the store.Before you can even open your mouth to greet her, she drops a demand on you. "Recette! As much as I appreciate your token of goodwill earlier, I cannot forget your blatant attack against my men during my last dungeon visit! To make up for the breach of law and order, I insist that you provide me with the adventurers necessary to finish what was started!">How do you answer?
>>32137871She would be arrested on multiple counts of attempted fraud and one count of grand larceny. The latter is a felony.We gave her some light discipline and a paying job. We're being extremely lenient on her. She should be in jail for a few (at least given the value of the stolen good) years - that means terrible living conditions, no pay, and difficulty finding employment.Do you see how generous we are being?
>>32137906I was actually calling for help. Those slimes would have killed me the moment I stepped out of the field. I thought you would have hired competent people.
>>32137871picfuckingrelated>>32137906"That was an accident but okay."
>>32137906>>How do you answer?"As much as I understand your frustration about the recent ... misunderstandings, I cannot very well just let you have my people for a dungeon mission. How about you tag along for the next run, and we split the loot? We quite often end up finding more than we can carry anyway."
>>32137906"That was an accident, actually. I was calling for help and assumed you'd brought competent fighters for a dangerous adventure like that! And even then, I can hardly just give over my own people for a dungeon mission. Oh, I know! How about you tag along the next time I go? We usually find more than we can carry, so we could split the loot?"She frowns, regarding you closely. "Hmm. So long as I get first choice of all the loot we find, then... I suppose this is acceptable. First thing tomorrow morning, then! We shall go to the dungeon together!"With a satisfied nod, Alouette takes her leave.Quiet returns to the store once more, and you're almost feeling comfortable enough to doze off again when a stranger appears at the door. With the long black coat flowing behind him, he strides confidently into your store.It takes you a moment to place why his outfit seems familiar, but when you do, your blood runs cold.It's the Church Inquisitor.>Actions?>Greetings?
>>32138213Greet politely. Ask if he's here to shop, or inspecting something.It's a good thing we know Caillou and Charme: we can say we bought stuff from them.
>>32138213greet him politelyfuckfuckfuck where is louie when you need him
>>32138213Be polite and adorable. Our stock is from those legal adventurers we know and the guild.Keep the magic stuff hidden behind the counter.
>>32138213>Actions?Try not to panic.>Greetings?Loudly and politely."Hello mister Inquisitor sir, how can I help you today?"Also>not using a Kotomine picI can't rejoice to this.
>>32138213Treat him like a regular customer. Too polite is suspicious.
>>32137958Hey now, not trying to tell you your fun is wrong, just that Recette is being a huge jerk.>>32137918Needless cruelty is still being super mean, even if someone else could do worse.
>>32138213Fun time with Rivalouette! I wonder if any of our adventurer friends will be available.
>>32138304>>not using a Kotomine picBut Kirei is a Church Executor in blue, not an Inquisitor in black!(Close enough though, I suppose.)
>>32138213You suppress your immediate urges to panic and declare your innocence. "Good afternoon, Inquisitor. May I be of service to you today? Are you here to shop, or...?"He fixes you with a gaze that seems to pierce your very soul. "I wish to speak with the owner, one Recette Lemongrass.""Th-that would be me," you stammer out your response, heart beating rapidly.An eyebrow raised, he seems to regard you once more. "Intriguing. Very well, I am here concerning a young mage who may be attempting heretical experiments within the city limits. We have not been able to place his identity yet, though we suspect he is purchasing ingredients from the local stores. The ordered items may seem innocent enough on their own, though they may have felt out of place for a young man to order. Have there been any such transactions that struck you as odd this past week?"You begin to wrap your mouth to form the words of a denial, when his face softens ever so slightly, "the Church does of course understand that the local merchants would have no idea of the heretical nature of their customers, and would be... forgiving, of any transgressions.">?
>>32138365We've been playing her as one for quite some time now. We own slaves, endanger their lives for profit, hell, we insisted on keeping the slime crown even though we knew the slimes would follow us to town. This isn't exactly a good guy quest.
>>32138450Stall? Say we don't usually give much thought to what our customers order as long as it doesn't seem illegal and that if he were to return tomorrow we could peruse our records for anything matching his description. if he accepts, we'll have time to consider whether or not to cut Caillou off or even sell him out.
>>32138450This is seems good. >>32138508
>>32138450denywe never saw anyone like that
>>32138450Well there was this young man with...eccentric tastes in snacks. He kept asking for odd combinations like bbq sauce, ice cream, and Vitamin, or a statue, a strawberry, and cheese syrup. After him, nothing really stood out as "out of place" per se.
>>32138450This is perfect. It's not really suspicious and gives us time to decide what to do without him watching.>>32138508
>>32138508>>32138527going with this
>>32138450Your mind races quickly through the possibilities. It's got to be Caillou that he's talking about, but is there anything in your records that would damn you? Anything in his?"No, I don't think there was anyone like that. But, I get a lot of customers getting one or two odd things. I don't really give much thought to what they're after if it's not illegal."The later half at least is a perfectly true statement. If it's not illegal, you don't care. It's just that most of what you peddle is illegal in one form or another.The Inquisitor scans you over again, taking in your features, searching. "A pity. I was sure this was one of the stores he'd purchased from." The tone of his voice tells you he is suspicious of your denial."Well, if you come back tomorrow, that would give me a chance to look over my transaction records. Perhaps I could find something I didn't notice at the time?"He holds his gaze, eyes locked on yours for a long few moments, then nods once. "That is acceptable. Very well, I will return on the morrow and pray that you find enlightenment in the meantime."With a flourish of his coat, he spins on his heel and strides out the door. You collapse back into your chair, letting out a breath you didn't realize you'd been holding.What have you gotten yourself into now?
Unfortunately, I've run out of time for today so this is as far as I can go.I've got a handful of minutes here, and a while after I get home so I can run the Q&A session here.Otherwise, I hope you all enjoyed the thread. Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you all next week!
>>32138670Caillou, you better be worth this.So many things to do, so little time.
>>32138670nice ... second part, i guess try not to blow everything up gotta show these yankees who's the boss, right?
>>32138693We could totally just sell him out. It'd hurt our "illegal reputation" somewhat, but it'd really be his fault for drawing attention to himself and us. Should be more careful if you're doing such things.
>>32138450>"Well, there was this young boy who came earlier this week. He said a wizard needed some magical items. I told him I'd look into it..."Is spankslave still in the back?
>>32138719I forget what this ritual is for. Caillou himself is quite competent as an adventurer, so covering for him is still tempting.We'll just catch him next time and have a talk.
I'm pretty sure Recette is the loli version of Jabba the Hutt I fear the moment she obtains leather adventure gears.
>>32138826That made me laugh. Then i realized it's not too far fetched. I'm okay with this.
>>32138759Continuing to do business with him would be difficult. The inquisitor is chasing him specifically, and will be watching us now. Unless we can somehow throw him off the trail with misdirection or bribes (or seduction? ), we just can't meet with Caillou again. Too risky for both of us. Otherwise, we might just have to hand Caillou over to get the church off our back.
>>32138735>Is spankslave still in the back?Well, she hasn't left yet. So yes.
>>32139159Will this quest have lewds as well or is Recette too pure?
>>32139159How many guest rooms do we have in our store and how many people/adventurers do we have staying over?
>>32139387There are no guest rooms. Your upstairs includes one large master bedroom, in which is placed your double-bed, Tear's cot and Louie's single bed, as well as a separate washroom.Downstairs includes the store front, the back room, kitchen and pantry.Currently staying are you, Tear and Louie.>>32139341>Will this quest have lewdsPlease do not sexualize the Recette.
>>32139468I never mentioned Recette! There are plenty of great characters to pair up, such as Charme x Tear or Louie x Euria or the unholy Tear x Prime.
>>32139622More like Tear X Up>>32139159Man, Recette is a shitty dom.
>>32140047I'm sorry, Up? Am I missing something obvious here?
>>32140178http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XtYVsdsNTATear iks UpTear it Upshitty wordplay by me.
>>32140643Oh- ohhhh. Right, that completely flew over my head. So I don't suppose anyone is still around with opinions on what to do about Caillou? Would have loved a nice after thread discussion.
>>32140703Oh, well, I suppose we can just say some boy did indeed want some specific items, and he told us it was for a wizard. We said we'd look into it, but he hasn't come back to the shop since.We should give Spankslave a hug and an healing potion, then send her to find Caillou and to tell him he can either meet us on the of the clothing shop at midnight, under heavy disguise, for a transaction (we have several of the items he wants), or he can sit on it.And since no one will want to deal with him with the Inquisitor on his tail, the price of these items will be maxed up. As will be the one of our silence.
>>32141210Should we really be blackmailing him AND jewing him out? He's still a solid wizard, which makes him a valuable ally.
>>32141259Nope, he's a liability. Having a gun is nice, but you're better off with a knife if carrying a gun is automatic death penatly.
>>32141313Unless I'm overestimating the threat the Inquisition represents.
>>32141313The Inquisition sounds bad, but I doubt they actually have any evidence. They may not even know exactly who they're looking for. That means there are options. And remember that we need options.
>>32141352Okay, so just sell the merchandise on the roof of the other shop, as I said, at only a slightly bigger price than normal retail. In fact, have Euria do the transaction (stay on the ground while she go to the roof, to avoid any... temptation) and give her the extra money. As an incentive to stay with us.
or >>32141210The problem with that is that it'll probably leave us "marked" by the church, leaving us subject to heavy scrutiny. If we're constantly under watch, all of our less than legal business will need to end. We need to give this inquisitor something we will never be rid of him.
>>32141599A physical description? Having Charme tell him she met him while adventuring?
>>32141622Something like that. We need to give off the distinct impression that the inquisitor scares us shitless (not like he'll believe we're helpful just because we're such a pious little merchant) and as a result have given everything we have and cut off all contact with Caillou. Once we feel confident we're out of sight we can arrange for secret meetings, but until then I believe staying completely clean and legit should be a priority.
>>32141824Okay, then.I'm still in for giving Euria a hug and an healing potion.
>>32141313>if carrying a gun is automatic death penatly.It's only a death sentence if you get caught carrying the gun.And the gun has cleverly disguised itself as your umbrella.
>>32143727>And the gun has cleverly disguised itself as your umbrella.If only it had, now we've got a creepy dude knocking on our door asking about it. It's a good point though, if he's in trouble, we could not just offer to not sell him out, but to hide him. Because the house isn't quite full yet, you know?
>>32141824>>32141622>>32141210>>32143727new plan:>tell Inquisition about the clothes Caillou was wearing, say we don't remember his face to well.>Have Euria find Caillou, tell him to change clothes, and do business through her.>Euria gets a percentage of profits from this.>Caillou meets up with us when we go adventuring later on
