  1. Lost and Found: October

    Thanks! Someone said the lost and found pile was on a chair in logistics. Never found a bottle in it though, just garb. I'll ask around and try to find out who Gail/Macie is.
  2. Lost one of my 30 bottles this last event. Its one of the small locking glass flasks used for crimson/cerulean minotaur. I also may have lost another small locking bottle last event. If someone may have mistaken buying a bottle to keep it, I need it back! Only Amanda should have an ooc purchased small locking bottle.
  3. RP Skill Approval & Advancement

    Player Name: John Harrington PC Name: Ralen Elkund Current RP Skills (Level): Medium 1 and Merchant 1 Requesting advancement to Merchant 2 Why advancement or new skill?: Ralen's drink selling business has been extremely successful. A larger basket, larger bottles, and more bottles were added. Two signs detailing the drinks were attached to the basket. A new drink was added and became very popular. Ralen regularly employs the PCs Phoenix and his new recruit Duncan as bodyguards to protect him and his wares. PCs commonly drink his drinks in celebration (a nearly whole basket was purchased for the brave companions liar's dice game). Ralen's new 'buy 5 get one free' deal has enticed people to purchase more. Ralen advised a couple traveling merchant entrepreneurs that alcoholic drinks are very popular. Ralen's drinks have been the target of poisoners once or twice. Ralen acquires between 300-560 coin per event from selling drinks. Ralen is attempting to open a clinic in a neighboring town. Occasionally Ralen's drinks are used in bartering for goods.

  5. Quaterstaff suitable for fighting

    I'm sorry but I wouldn't know if that first staff would pass or not. If you wanted to you could get the same staff as mine as mine is heavily painted. They'd look similar in design though, but I wouldn't mind. Weapon purchasing is difficult sadly. If you ask around a bunch and nobody has experienced the weapon then it can be a high stakes gamble. Sorry I can't be more helpful...
  6. Quaterstaff suitable for fighting

    Also my staff from Epic Armoury Is indeed able to strike with both ends. I try to never push the ends into the ground and also rest the staff bottom atop my boot when stationary and not in use.
  7. Quaterstaff suitable for fighting

    Ralen here, I bought my staff from Epic Armoury. I recommend their staves. I purchased the metal braced staff and painted it for my master staff of restoration.
  8. RP Skill Approval Winter 2016

    Ralen Elkund (John Harrington) for Merchant 1 Ralen has been selling Crimson Minotaur and plans to expand his stock to Monster Brew as well. He also has a history of traveling as a potion merchant as he trained in the magic field of restoration. He plans to one day return to crafting potions, but has his herb mixed drinks to sell in the meantime.
  9. Thanks a ton MK! I bought one and plan to buy another of the third link you listed. I also bought two metal spigots to replace the plastic ones on them. Good idea zach! I could add alcohol to the bottles in game by fake pouring alcohol into the bottles. I'm also told I could purify spirit the bottles/jug to make the drinks non-alcoholic. It's all just a matter of figuring the best way to add alcohol to the drinks in character.
  10. Attachment didn't work, uploaded here: http://postimg.org/image/4vos3e9ip/
  11. In the past couple of events my character, Ralen Elkund, has been selling energy drinks. While I have been primarily selling Red Bull, renamed Crimson Minotaur, I plan to sell Monster energy drinks as well. I have a few questions regarding the sale of these energy drinks. 1.) I've been primarily selling them in glass bottles with corks, but I've stumbled across a new, easier to use bottle. This bottle (see attachment, sorry it's kind of fuzzy) is stained red and has a simple locking mechanism. The problem however is that I don't know if stained bottles are a common sight, and if the plastic top is acceptable. The plastic top on the bottle can be mistaken as glass. This bottle would be nice as it fits the name Crimson Minotaur (crimson bottle), has an easy to use locking mechanism, and rids the problem of losing corks. 2.) Many players mistake Crimson Minotaur as an 'alcoholic' drink. I assume this is because Red Bull is fizzy much like the 'alcohol' served in game. I correct them that it is a mixture of invigorating herbs, but I feel like I've heard that fizzy = alcohol. If the drinks are bubbly, does that mean it must be alcohol as carbonation doesn't exist? I plan to sell the Monster version as Monster Brew (after hearing it was sold as such) as an alcoholic drink. 3.) I haven't yet found a large container to dispense Crimson Minotaur and Monster Brew, but I plan to buy a couple full glass ones. The ones that didn't work out that I have found have plastic spouts much like the water 'barrels' in the inn. Are plastic spouts acceptable on the glass coolers?
  12. To my dismay I remembered I forgot my feast wear. I forgot in the inn: A burlap messenger bag (hanging by the door) A metal cup with a glass bottom A deep wooden bowl A shallow wooden bowl A couple metal utensils (a fork, a spoon, and a two pronged fork, one of these are already found) I know that often times forgotten items are thrown out. I heard these items may be thrown out. I will pay for returned items if asked to do so.
  13. Where to buy a Mid-level Bow

    Bought the bow Dave recommended last night. Thanks guys for the info and tips though!
  14. So I LOVE NPCing with a bow and using my dag arrows. Problem is, my current bow is a take down recurve bow. It barely passes as a nighttime bow and even then it has to be covered with black fabric tape. My bow has been long overdue to be replaced, however i'm not yet ready to drop 300 bucks on a one piece recurve bow. Anyone know a mid-level bow I can buy between $100-$200? I'd prefer to spend closer to a hundred dollars. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Bow specs i'd like but anything similar is alright: Less than or equal to $200 Recurve Has an Arrow Shelf Is longer than a horse bow but not english longbow length Is made with real wood or a wood-like material ------------------------------------------------------------------ Am I better off waiting for a sweet one piece recurve? Does anyone know any craftsmen in KoN I could purchase from? (I heard of a crossbow seller) Normally i'd just search this myself, but I feel those with more experience in buying bows might have a deal somewhere I haven't looked.
  15. Best of June 2015

    I always love reading these so it's about time I contribute. NPC: -Being an annoying gypsy that would do anything for money. "Clean your boots? Dry you off? Five coin? Six?" I totally would've massaged your character's feet for 15coin Jordan, hehe. -Bear pit in the thunder. Nothing more dramatic than bare chested men fighting in a bear pit while lightning flashed and thunder cracked. -Being an undead archer shooting PCs multiple times. Specifically Michael Burnheart(?). Mostly Michael Burnheart(?). A lot. -Successfully stealing back a stolen gem as a bandit and then selling it. I was surprised how scarce healing was when my bandit took roughly 10minutes to be healed from being found. Yelling until Ivan walked up behind us and beat us down from behind for yelling was hilarious. -Skaven bowling! As a bunch of Skaven who murdered a traveler and was feasting on a corpse a few of us grew bored of waiting for PCs. While I was waiting I decided to stand up a few bones by leaning them on each other. Another skaven then bowled a severed head into the bone pile. When the PCs showed up we offered them to join us. Ivan sneakily backstabbed one of the skaven as the skaven went to bowl the head. Then in the confusion the rest cut us down. PC: -Getting to RP a lot with Mediums and how they work. A perfect Medium plot showed up at a great time, too. The plot was a sister who lost her brother and sought to see/hear him to ensure he is dead. The RP was so great I actually shed a couple tears at one point. -The 'murderer' as she was called backstabbing someone. The warrior then chased after her and she poisoned him down. After I healed the warrior someone asked him if he was going after her again. "Do you think i'm going to let her get away?" says the warrior who then proceeded to chase the woman and get shot down again. -Watching Michael Burnheart help micanoids do a ritual with his candle. The micanoids then casted a fire breath ritual and began shooting fire everywhere, including at Michael Burnheart. -Hearing about Vampires luring PCs with a bell to a dark path, which they then fell into a pitfall trap. -Feeling useless overall, then blowing fifteen power in healing in the matter of minutes. Twice. -Accidentally helping a possible grave robber and participating in making a deal with a hag. Woops. -Getting spooked by cairnhold undead saying, "Cairnhold! Form up!" Then later as I was eating I heard fighting outside. When I looked to my right I saw a human face enter the inn. Thinking it was a Pinedale Adventurer seeking refuge I thought he was friendly. I was wrong. -Getting backstabbed by a Dan-Wraith -Spotting a PC bleeding out partially in the woods alone and healing him almost by myself. -Talking to a hunter who was hunting a, "White Deer." If only my character knew what that deer actually was.
