"And what else... A simple glass of water...?" Boomer asked with a bemused smile to the Zebra's long speal of random odds and ends to buy.

Well I've met a lot of meanie bo beanies like sharky pants, mister giant sword and whats her face with the mic though a bunch of great ponies too like Cool-old-lady-apple-chef, Jack Cheddar,and Luna who gave me this hat!" She then affectionately smiles and tugs on her straw hat for a moment.
"Well, that's a wide assortment of characters. I wonder if I've heard of anypony like them." Torque tried to remember if he could recall any older books or recent rumors that would establish who some of the ponies were that Pinkie met...he could have sworn he had heard the name Luna before, at least...
Rolling:
To see if he can put names and descriptions to better figure out the people Pinkie's described...

"Curious. Perhaps if 62 were here, he might be able to translate this text. Oh well, as long as the shopkeeper knows what's in all of them."

tygerburningbright wrote:"Da... I am with the needing of payment. Special blowout sale prices: cannonballs 1 for 3 bit, gunpowder 10 bits per pound, 1 log pose paradise type 150 bits, no maps of grand line available, last year's Swords annual magazine 12 bits. Equal exchange accepted."
"Oh, very nice selection. I must confess, I'm rather new to the seafaring profession, so I have a few questions if you don't mind:
-How many pounds of gunpowder are normally used when firing a cannon once?
-Could you describe what a "log pose" is and what makes it a "Paradise" type? Is it like a compass?"


Torque gave a small grin. "At the very least, I'll buy the Swords magazine without any further fuss." He pulled out 12 coins from Renkin's coin pouch and handed them to the shopkeeper.
tygerburningbright wrote:The shopkeeper pulls out an empty case that sucks in the Energy Sapper and then opens up a larger chest from which a Bandolier of grenades explodes out before wrapping itself perfectly around Torque.

Torque was rather shocked at the explosion that came out of the chest, but smiled as he looked down at the bandolier. "Functional, effective, and comfy, too. Very nice!"

Torque rolled his eyes. "While I'm surprisingly optimistic about the shopkeeper's ability to supply...any of that, I'm less sure that we'd be able to PAY for all of that. I suggest we stick to the essentials as best we can unless our "liquidity" problem resolves itself."

After half a second of thought, Carat trots in the direction of the creaking metallic sound, hoping it would be the answer to the riddle.

Sixty-Two watched, eyebrow raised, for a moment before flashing his most winsome smile, or at least one worthy of a Participation Award, at the...young lady across from him. "You will, I hope, excuse my friend. She tends to wander off sometimes - yet other times I simply can't get her out of my hair!" He laughed nervously before following after Carat.

A.R.C. followed after him, but not before first staring at the...at their new acquaintance for a few awkward and vaguely threatening seconds.

"Beneficial magic Voodoo trinkets, mojos, or written wisdom..."
"Supplies for providin' a boat wit' a self-sustaining garden..."
"Some care products for mah' special loa kitten..."
, Shallow continues, pulling out Whisper Lilly to demonstrate.
"Some literature or items related to da' symbolics on dis' parchment...", he says, showing off the parchment he copied 62's symbolic translation of his encrypted note earlier, and comparing it with the writing on the shopkeepers metallic boxes.
"Someting' tah' help cure a pon's fear of drownin' like a Devil Fruit and da' murky seas...
"A hat fit for me and mah' bruddah..."
, he points at Torque.
"A picture of a pretty mare I didn't see before, dat' would enjoy mah' compionship..."
"Someting' tah' help me wit' dealin' wit' unsavory spirits of da' dead..."
"Someting' dat' Grizelda da' griffon would like tah' see gifted..."
"Someting' dat' used tah' belong tah' da' Reverend Deacon, Tender Ender..."
"And finally, a compass dat points tah' pon's I can trust."


Stuff:
Comparing the symbols I copied (with 62's help) with the boxes. Also, I assume Magical Attunement shows if the boxes are magical?

“Enchanted objects start from 500 bits scrolls of wisdom start from 1 bits
Hydroponic growing system with salt removal system 15,000 bits
Cat care kit 25 bits
No not for selling or buying
The pirate’s guide to irrational fears water edition 420,000 bits
Matching set of tricorns 100 bits
Picture of a mare 450 bits
Ghost destruction slip 5,000 bits each
Enchanted Maelström stone stolen 250,000 bits
Enchanted Maelström stone stolen 250,000 bits
Compass of the heart’s desire modified 1,000,000,000 bits”

The symbols are nothing at all alike. You can tell that the boxes are some kind of magical object.

Torque gave a small grin. "At the very least, I'll buy the Swords magazine without any further fuss." He pulled out 12 coins from Renkin's coin pouch and handed them to the shopkeeper.

Skarky pants may refering to a shark sea pony, there are a very large number of pirates, marines, and bounty hunters that are famous for large swords…, you can’t think of anyone with a mic that is significant, you can think of a famous pirate chief famed for her apple dishes known as Granny Smith, you can’t think of anything for the next name,

"Recommended 2.5 times the weight of projectile. Cannonballs available at listed price are 4 pounds each.
A log pose is a special compass for the Grand Line that points to islands it is needed because normal compasses do not operate within the Grand Line. The single needle type is only applicable to the first half of the Line “Paradise”."
The keeper take the coins and another box opens up and a large magazine explodes out landing directly in front
of Torque.

Yes, quite I should have expected that she was going to do such a thing when she just ignored my question.” Rarity sizes up ARC for a few second before deciding to follow.

A short while later 62 and Rarity manage to catch up with Carat

"Well while part of me wants to try and steal everything we can here for our goods... But I always feel bad stealing for good bombmakers, or just good bombowners... And given that you tend to have all exchanges end with a bang if I recall... Yeah... we'll be paying.." Boomer muses to herself out loud in a matter of factly tone of voice.

"Boomer, considering that the shopkeeper's been nothing but fair to us, it could take hours to try finding what we're looking for in these boxes (assuming that we even COULD open the boxes), and that the shopkeeper may have nigh infinite weapons or constructs that could be used against us in this shop, it would be a VERY VERY BAD IDEA to try robbing this store."

"...hey, I'm trying to be civil here, Torque... Just can't resist to not bring up the option. And I believe I equally pointed out that it was a bad idea did I not? Hell the fact I even talk about it at all should mean something..." Boomer comments a bit insulted and then explains farther. "Recall that for the past 5 to 10 years or so, I didn't really keep count, I've been needing to live off of using others... Blowing up shops and stealing from places like this without question... I know this group of pirates doesn't like to do that, but hey, I'd feel remiss if I didn't at least put that option out on the table. Yes I'll admit I'm doing so very badly... And I do apologize for that fact. But I don't regret saying what I said about our options here. Also totally would be shocked if this is the first time any group of thieves, crooks, or pirates have talked about trying to steal from here this frankly as I have today..."

"I...think I see where you're coming from, Boomer. We're part of a profession that is primarily known for essentially taking things from other people (our ship and gold bars are proof of that). And while I hope and wish that we can try to focus more on ponies who "have it coming" one way or another, you've found you haven't always had that luxury if you wanted to survive. I'm sorry I acted as though that the idea of stealing was "beneath us", and I'm sorry for treating you and your ideas with less respect than you deserve."

Rarity cracks up a single eye and looks a Carat. “They were a pirate captured and executed…or simply placed into the cage until they died.”With dramatic sigh and shudder she goes back to ‘fainting’.

"...I don't believe hugs are quite necessary, Shallow," Torque said, stepping out of Boomer's personal space. "I think it's enough that we've gained a better understanding of each other for the moment. Boomer may apologize to the shopkeeper if she so wishes, but I think it's been made clear that that there is no ill intent meant toward this shop."

Torque then passed the cat kit and one of the tricorn hats to Shallow, put the other tricorn hat on his own head, then passed out the strawberry juice to everyone. "Well, I doubt the cannonballs and gunpowder will be getting any cheaper. I think enough for 10 shots should do for now." Torque paid 1,000 bits for 100 lbs of gunpowder and 30 bits for 10 cannonballs. "I don't suppose that these could be delivered to our ship, or that there is a cart or something we can borrow to transport the items?" he asked the shopkeeper. "Out of curiosity, did Grizelda sell you her Enchanted Maelström stone, or is it you just have another one lying around? Also, did I happen to hear you mention something about an anti G belt?"

Once the transaction was complete, he turned to the rest of the crew in the shop. "Now, I believe 62 and Carat are currently looking for a market which may have a better exchange rate for our gold bars. I believe our next stop should be the shipyards. If we can get Boomer's armor design implemented on our ship, any encounters at sea will be much less hassle. We've got some of the framework set up, and the metal we have may help offset the cost of materials. At the very least, we can get estimates (and possibly see if they're more willing to take gold bars)."

"I-er-" Carat closes her eyes then takes a deep breath. Then another. Then another, but this time she comes up with a smile. "Of course! Metal rusts when it gets wet, thus 'thirsty,' and this is an actual cage. I think the entrance to the black market should be somewhere around here!"

"Shipyah'ds seem like a good plan. We can come back later tah' continue our purchases wit' some goods of equal exchange, and da' boat probably provides priority. Question be where our black-market huntah's be, tho - did we arrange a meet-spot wen' dey' find it? And da' hug is not negotiable. Very Happy "

Torque looked at Shallow for a few moments, then sighed. "You're not going to let up on this, are you? Fine." Torque went over to Boomer and gave her a quick hug. "Satisfied?" he asked, while trying to reassert a professional demeanor.

Sixty-Two made his way back to the pair'o pirates. "Well then," he mumbled, slightly disheartened yet strangely curious. "I suppose there's only one thing to do." Setting his jaw, Sixty-Two turned to A.R.C. 413. "Codeword: SCANMAKEUP, TARGET: This...pony in front of us? Is that an acceptable codephrase?"

"AFFIRMATIVE," doubled the little robot sphere, turning to the dead pone in question. With a whir of machinery, twin blue lasers shot from its "eyes", roaming o'er the milky white planes of calcium, some small stones of rotten meat included.

Sixty-Two turned away from the task, smiling. "Now then, this may take a while, so-"

"SCAN COMPLETE."

Sixty-Two turned back, surprised. "Ah, good, well done, you! CODEWORD: SUMMATIONS."

"THIS PONY IS DEAD."

Sixty-Two face-faulted.

Boomer just eyerolls at the suggestion, but she doesn't resist the hug from Torque at all and does hug back a little. Not really making any vocal comment on this... Far as she cared everything was fine now... I mean the shopkeeper was laughing so she knew it was said in jest her comment about doing the robbery of the place.

Boomer's emotional level:  :maud:

Torque then passed the cat kit and one of the tricorn hats to Shallow, put the other tricorn hat on his own head, then passed out the strawberry juice to everyone. "Well, I doubt the cannonballs and gunpowder will be getting any cheaper. I think enough for 10 shots should do for now." Torque paid 1,000 bits for 100 lbs of gunpowder and 30 bits for 10 cannonballs. "I don't suppose that these could be delivered to our ship, or that there is a cart or something we can borrow to transport the items?" he asked the shopkeeper. "Out of curiosity, did Grizelda sell you her Enchanted Maelström stone, or is it you just have another one lying around? Also, did I happen to hear you mention something about an anti G belt?"
“No she did not. There is only one on this island.
Atlas brand 500 bits, Thunderbolt make 100,000 bits.
Balls and powder will be delivered”

After a good bit of walking the crew arrives at the shipyard… which is currently making a rather good approximation of a battlefield with craters and large slash marks scattered around. There are a few workers around either running around screaming or cowardly hideing.

Rarity props herself up on her couch to look at Carat “That doesn’t make sense in the slightest Darl...ing” The unicorn is cut off by Carat finding a trapdoor hidden behind cage. Unfortunately the entrance appears to be locked.
