    Meh, I stock up a bit.. but never sell the stuff. I make sure Kaiu gets what she wants, I pick up 1 or 2 things for myself, and anything extra I just give away to people I think would like it.
    Can confirm. @Garis just handed me a scabbard when I missed out! And since someone else sold me one at cost they got me I forwarded it to @Exxia who missed out on one. The few good people make up for the profiteers

    Basically, the grammar becomes correct when you draw the weapon out of it. Very uncool.
    Typo it?
    - (Eleusis): Ellodin says, "The Fissure of Echoes is Sarathai's happy place."
    - With sharp, crackling tones, Kyrra tells you, "The ladies must love you immensely."
    - (Eleusian Ranger Techs): Savira says, "Most of the hard stuff seem to have this built in code like: If adventurer_hitting_me = "Sarathai" then send("terminate and selfdestruct")."

    - Xaden says, "Xaden confirmed scrub 2017."

    Scintillating colours mix and swirl in a shifting palette of light cast by the crystalline tented candle.

    Not sure if typo or over my head.
    Huh. Neat.
  • SenaSena Member Posts: 3,957 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    What are you thinking is a typo? If you mean "tented", it's referring to the crystal shade covering the candle. Although it's not quite correct, since the candle itself isn't crystalline (I don't think "crystalline-tented" works well either, maybe "crystal-tented"). Although "candle" could reasonably refer to the entire object, including the shade/jar and not just the wax candle inside.

    I'm too distracted to properly think about the grammar of it right now.

    EDIT: Nope that wouldn't work either.

    And yeah, it just seems really awkwardly worded.
    Huh. Neat.

    It's fine.

    "Crystalline, tented candle" would be wrong, but no comma, though ambiguous, allows you to infer from context that the tent is crystalline.

    Painting number 3:

    Mounted in a smooth diorite frame, this ink painting accurately portrays the momentous contention of 
    Severian Marcella in the legendary debate. Held within the Theatron Sarapin, the grooved surface of 
    the canvas imbues the richness of the pigments used to enhance the scene. Cairn stones of varying 
    sizes are worn smooth by the elements and jut out from the earth, forming a natural amphitheatre 
    upon the hillside situated near ancient Shallam. Severian dominates the grassy platform within the 
    ring of boulders, heaping criticisms upon Nikolas' idealistic points with every forceful jab of his 
    outstretched finger. The wry voice of reason, the face of the youthful man is contorted into an 
    expression of utter concentration as he engages himself in the fierce dispute.
    It has 125 months of usefulness left.
    It weighs about 9 pounds.
    It bears the distinctive mark of Lindire, the woodcarver (a denizen).

    hillside situated near ancient Shallam. Nikolas stands alone upon a grassy platform, passionately 
    addressing an assemblage of diverse groups ranging from farmers to wanderers, rootless warriors to 
    disinherited sons. Confidence and determination shines from the face of the man as he skillfully 
    presents his points to the masses, blissfully unaware of the great future that is laid out before 
    him.

    Also, Quean'a snuck in a drink! I would use quotes, but it's impossible to copy-paste with quotes on this site...


    a daemon blood shot
    This shot glass looks to be larger than a standard shot, and formed of rough onyx-like stone. A 
    number of crude runes and symbols cover the outside of the glass. Its contents, a deep emerald hue, 
    bubble and steam, while giving off a strangely sweet and alluring fragrance.
    It has 100 months of usefulness left.
    It weighs 2 ounce(s).
    It bears the distinctive mark of Quaen'a (a denizen).
    An unusual liquid sloshes about in it.
    There are 1 sips remaining.




    You quickly slam a daemon blood shot, and a sharp taste of brimstone and strawberry assaults your tastebuds.

    As you savour the last vestiges of the shot, your vision blurs red, and you notice your surroundings have changed...

    The stench of burned flesh, and the sound of anguished screams erupt all around you.

    As you look around, you come to the realisation that you are now standing in what seems to be the Inferno.

    As the first hints of horror begin to creep up your spine, a hot, putrid breath can be felt on your neck.

    Slowly turning around, you gaze up and lock eyes with a huge daemon lord.

    With a wicked smile, he swings a massive clawed hand towards you...

    Clenching your eyes shut, you wait for death to take you...

    After what seems to be an eternity, you open one eye slightly, expecting the daemons to be upon you, only to find that things are as they were before.



    Apparently, the drinker looks like this to the room:

    Tydas's eyes flash red momentarily, and a look of abstract horror crosses his face.Tydas quickly drops the empty shot glass, causing it to shatter, and ducks as if he is dodging something.

    pretty sure you can ask melodie or someone for a few of the items. buying extras is common
  • NataliiaNataliia Member Posts: 385 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    Yeah, but everyone inflates the prices like crazy... like selling all 3 paintings for 500cr. That's insane. :/

    If you ask around most people will have an item or two they'll give away because they aren't jerks.

    If you hit Datrius up in game, he specifically bought extras of things just to sell at cost off to people who couldn't make it.

    Out of curiosity, can anything be put on the bazaar canteen other than water?

    And you won't understand the cause of your grief...

    As far as I know, it works the same as any non-vial liquid container, meaning the only options I know of are water and blood.
