  • Belhrad's New Stores

    Hi Folks,
    To clear up some confusion and questions about the current state of Belhrad and his stores:
    Belhrad enjoys when you buy his things.
    Belhrad does not like it when you sleep in his stores.
    Belhrad doesn't mind if you window show without buying, so long as you're not doing other things he doesn't like.
    Belhrad does not care if you harass his bird (though the bird has a thought or two about it.)
    Belhrad and his storekeepers note the sort of things you buy, including colors, materials, and descriptive accents.
    If Belhrad likes you enough, he will have his shopkeepers bring things out for you when you arrive, based on the above (exact details will not be provided).
    If Belhrad dislikes you enough (primarily, if you treat his stores as a flophouse), he will not allow you back until you've made an effort to make amends and talk things out with him.

    Many new items types have been added to Belhrad's stock the last couple of days, with more to come next week.

      As of this afternoon, the number of individual colors available at Belhrad's stores has approximately tripled. Additionally, shades of brown have been added to the generation code for these items.

        To better service the varied needs of the people of Iridine, Rhiella has moved her operations over a room, leaving Levorius, her apprentice, to sell his wares in her old space. While the styles are similar, there is a cap on the prices of the items that will be sold in Levorius' space.

        Belhrad's other storekeeps will have similar changes occurring throughout the coming weeks.

                Miroslav will now, occasionally, have some helmets with faceplates in stock. About 20% of the time, these will not show the plate until purchased and closed, to support some players' wish for anonymity and/or lack of known association with their plate. Those helmets are priced upwards accordingly, though be warned they may be more comical than terrifying.

                  As we all know, Belhrad cycles through his inventory rather quickly! What happens with the items that never get purchased?

                  Soon, it could be you!

                  In a back room, one of Belhrad's employees has been packing up old, unsold stock, to sell at a discount!

                  From Sharonpa, you'll purchase a box, of varying levels of fanciness and pricing. This box will contain one, or more, items, and the original sales price of the items contained in the box will at minimum exceed what you paid.

                  =[Stock]================================================== ====================
                  Item for sale Price

                    chestnut suede grip, and a smooth seelan bracelet dotted with several finely-cut pieces of turquoise

                      Find yourself overwhelmed with fancy torches and nothing to do with them? Spend a LITTLE too much money at Sharonpa's store and find yourself with six different lanterns in the shape of a star? Feel like visiting GameStop but need to earn more Role Points?

                      Belhrad's store are now accepting returns of unwanted items!

                      Follow the hallway past Sharonpa's shop, to the northwest, and at the end of the hall, you'll find an opening.

                      Place your unwanted items (Only those sold by Belhrad or his shops!) in the opening and you'll be given an offer of store credit for the items.

                      look in box
                      You see a loose ruby sturdy leather tunic, edged with ruby silk, a blonde leather greave with blonde
                      doeskin bands, and a pair of silver sewing scissors in a large oak box with tin reinforcements.
                      It is currently open.
                      look
                      You are at the far corner of the expansive marketplace. Built into the northern wall is a large
                      opening along the bottom half of the wall. Above a large opening along the bottom half of the wall
                      is a sign stating 'RETURNS HERE' with a downward-pointing arrow. Hanging from the ceiling is a
                      brightly glowing lantern.
                      You are facing north. You see a simple rectangular doorway to the south.

                      put box in opening
                      [Items returned here are issued credit toward the purchase of Sharonpa's boxes only.]
                      [You'll be provided the opportunity to decline trade-in if you find the amount offered unfavorable.]

                      The items you're offering up are worth three hundred ninety-eight denars, two sterces, and two sens
                      in trade-in value. Do you accept? (Y/N)
                      n
                      You reconsider and pull back a large oak box with tin reinforcements.

                      A pair of legs stops next to a large oak box with tin reinforcements on the other side of the
                      opening.
                      A brick in the upper wall folds open, and a pair of green eyes peer out.
                      The brick closes again, and a large oak box with tin reinforcements is moved out of sight.
                      a large oak box with tin reinforcements, filled with rejected items, is deposited out through the
                      opening.

                      look in box
                      You see a pair of silver sewing scissors in a large oak box with tin reinforcements.
                      It is currently open.

                      You arrive at a small storefront, tucked away in the space between more luxurious stalls. Sharonpa
                      is here. You are facing west. You see a thin pinewood door, engraved with 'Discounted Stock' to the
                      east.
                      Sharonpa says to you, "It looks like you've traded in enough for a bronze-trimmed box."
                      Sharonpa exclaims to you, "You can redeem this now, or you can keep on saving up!"
                      Would you like to redeem fifteen talents, three hundred twelve denars, and two sterces of trade in
                      credit for a bronze-trimmed box now? (Y/N)
                      y
                      Sharonpa places a large oak box with bronze reinforcements down for Scolve.
                      look in box
                      You see an imposing vibrant orange sycamore chair, a broad malachite softsun trunk with a fine linen
                      -wrapped lid, and a thin alanti bracelet accented with several finely-cut pieces of light blue
                      sapphire in a large oak box with bronze reinforcements.
                      It is currently open.
                      *IMPORTANT NOTES*
                      1. Trade-in credit can ONLY be used to purchase new boxes at Sharonpa's store currently.
                        1. Future uses for trade-in credit will be considered.
                      2. The returns opening will ONLY accept goods that are sold out of Belhrad's stores.
                        1. This includes items that were included in the boxes.
                        2. This does not include the boxes themselves.
                      3. You can provide individual items OR containers full of items.
                        1. If the container was sold by Belhrad's stores, it will ALSO be included in the trade-in, so don't provide a container you want to keep.
                        2. If an item that won't be purchased by the returns opening is included in the container, it will be returned at the end of the transaction.
                      4. Trade offers for containers full of items are all-or-nothing.
                        1. If you want to be particular about how much you get for an item, trade them in individually.
                        2. Trade offers are non-negotiable, and will vary based on the type of item, the materials it's made of, and other factors that won't be explained further.
                      5. Use of the returns opening is logged to help prevent and detect abuse.

                        For those who don't check every day, we have some new items being created in Belhrad's stores:

                        Nomos the Jeweler now sells anklets, hair pins, earrings, and brooches.

                        Aeriaus now sells jewelry boxes, to keep all these new jewelries in.

                        Rhiella and Levorius now sell different qualities and costs of subligar. (And corsets now generate far more often).

                          Sharonpa will now let you know how much trade-in credit you have if you ask her for your balance.

                          Sharonpa will now allow you to purchase with your trade in credit if you ask to redeem.

                          Sharonpa will now accept trade-in credit at the sale price while she's running sales.

                          Trade-in credit is in the process of being balanced, some items have had their values increased, and the overall credit being offered will fluctuate based on recent trade-in activity.
