Episode 64
FuSiOn II, The angry blacksmith

 

Whilst travelling the land, by chance I come across FuSiOn II doing his blacksmith power hour.

When I enter the house he quickly snatches up a pile of ingots that he had left unlocked on the floor... Now he wants me to leave the house so he can lock them down...

    

But Jones is not leaving when there is a chance for some free ingots!

At first he is polite... then things quickly turn nasty when I do not leave...

              

         

    

Well I still have not left. I know FuSiOn II will have to drop the ingots eventually... and he does...

              

I quickly snatch up the ingots and get a bit of a surprise when I see how many there are... I am now holding 13514 iron ingots on my curser.

FuSiOn II is not happy.

         

              

         

    

I begin to edge my way to the front door...
Now that you can not use the stuck option to transport heavy items, this may prove a little difficult.

FuSiOn II continues with the threats and obscenities. I am hoping he will be kind enough to open the door...

         

         

         

    

Now FuSiOn II tries to make a deal. If I give him back 10,000 ingots, I can keep the rest... Personally I would rather have 13514 ingots...

         

              

         

         

         

                   

Yet another GM call? I wonder what for...

         

    

It would have been interesting to stay around for the GM call, but I wanted to get these ingots to a safe location.

I make my move... I know at this point that FuSiOn II would either stupidly open the door or ban me, so I had better act fast!

Well he bans me, so I do a quick peacemake/run and hide... just in time to avoid the snakes and scorpions at the door.

I gradually make my way to a safe location where I can transport the ingots in safety...

FuSiOn II  gives chase but is driven off my the scorpions.

I drop the ingots in a valid location so they do not end up back in the house if something goes wrong...

Then, when I am far enough from the scene, I mark and do a few recalls to my house with the ingots.

    

When all the ingots are secured, I return to FuSiOn II's house to see if a GM had turned up... No such luck.

              

                   

              

He wants to use 8k of my ingots??? I am afraid he will have to mine his own!

         

              

   

I notice there is a vendor selling ingots in his house...

         

         

Why indeed? Such a silly question...  I decide to recall home and leave him to deal with the loss.

This should keep my smith happy for a while!
