Yeah. My big profit is cooking, though I have one shop jam-packed with collectibles and overflowing into another shop (even trying to sell the pumpkin bags themselves from the journal attempt mentioned before). I don't consider the list price to be the actual price, but a barrier to people who aren't collectors*. I've always been encouraging of people who want to make an offer on something they see in the coyote and willing to come down by half the list price or more depending on who it is. Knowing that it's going to someone who wants it instead of someone who wants to sell it can drop something from half a million to five figures.I tend to put interesting things in a shop and, as they sit there, my affection/interest in those things goes up or down and the price adjusts accordingly. I still adore and can't yet part with my hourglass, though several have attempted (three different people have offered 250-300 credits). I don't know why I don't just either get it resetting already or accept one of the ridiculous offers.*Barrier to people who aren't collectors thing: It's a real pain in the ass but people who aren't serious about it will often buy something because they can afford it and then go nah, and send a message wanting a refund. I try to be an all-sales-are-final hardass but more often than not I'll give them their gold back, even though they've made the item start to decay. When it costs upwards of a quarter million gold, they think harder before buying and it almost never happens.
It just hit me. The thing that stops me from getting things I love to resetting. I hate doing that and then the item is re-released either temporarily or permanently. I got a deck of playing cards in a bazaar and very shortly after that they became a permanent fixture in casinos, which left a very bitter taste in my mouth.
You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "Sit with me." Klohee blushes as she joins you and sits down.
You have emoted: Dortheron bows his head down, muttering a small incantation that you can't understand. You have emoted: Dortheron snaps his head up, his normally golden eyes glowing blue.
You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "Thus by the power of these runes, I cast out my net and snare a glimpse of your future, Klohee!"
The sound of clattering stones resonates in the air as you give a rough sack of carved rune stones a vigorous shake. You loosen the drawstrings of a rough sack of carved rune stones and cast its contents across the ground.
Your keen eyes pass over the cast stones before spying your first rune that has landed face up. Closer observation reveals that it is an inverted Fehu symbol.
You shift an inverted Fehu rune stone to your right and carry on searching for your next symbol. You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "INVERTED FEHU!"
Your keen eyes pass over the cast stones before spying a second rune that has landed face up.Closer observation reveals that it is an inverted Laguz symbol. You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "INVERTED LAGUZ."
You slide an inverted Laguz rune stone over to join an inverted Fehu as the middle of the casting layout, before carrying the search for your last symbol.
Your keen eyes pass over the cast stones again before spotting a third and final rune that has landed face up.
You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "UPRIGHT ISAZ."
You move your final rune stone over to complete the arrangement, taking up a position to the extreme left.
Your final three rune layout stands as an upright Isaz, an inverted Laguz followed by an inverted Fehu symbol.
You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "Your future is overall negative!"
Klohee says in a soft-spoken, demure voice, "O-oh." You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "Wait...the details are coming to me...the meaning of each rune..."
You have emoted: His eyes flinkering from the blazing blue down towards their normal shade of gold, Dortheron mutters softly, searching for words to express the shapes that the future of each rune holds.
You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "Fehu, inverted. Laxity. Laziness, Complacent. Dullness, Draining, Failure. Cowardice, corruption, over-indulgence." You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "Your search for the easy way will end badly, stricting you when amibition and hard work would set you on the right path." You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "Laguz, Inverted. Reality, mortality, confusion. Madness, divorce, suicide."
You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "Bound by the confides you have made for yourself because of your laxity, you will be conflicted both physically and mentally." You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "This will ultimately lead in the destruction of self." You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "Isaz, upright. Inspiration, spontaneity, electrifying, creativity." You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "Before your end though, you will reach a place of brillant thought. Your confusion and madness will breed inspiration and power in others."
You have emoted: Dortheron eyes completely empty of all eerie light, returning completely to it's natural glow of warmth.
You say to Klohee in a deep, almost purring voice, "But this future is not set in stone or blood. This is only a fumbling of what may come to be."
Klohee sadly says in a soft-spoken, demure voice, "S-scary.."
You say to Klohee in a deep, almost purring voice, "You are the font of your fate. You will choose your path and the results...this is but one possible telling."
You clasp your hands before yourself, face Klohee, and perform a simple, respectful bow.
You say in a deep, almost purring voice, "Thank you for participating!"
Still looking for a set of statues, hit me up folks! Can't have a proper richly appointed estate without things to appoint it with.
