This is not the way to start this adventure. I’m attached to all my guys already. I promised myself I wouldn’t do that so the losses wouldn’t hurt so bad. I need to hire some joker to take the pressure off the primaries, but first lets equip them and find that Hoggarts guy.
OK lets buy a spear, a shield, a broken mace, a crappy knife, a farmer’s straw hat, and a hood? Well we gotta protect their heads somehow and waiting to collect stuff after battle could be too late. Also, lets grab a bandage. Also look at that! This town is going to be an awesome trade spot! Dyes, wine, AND mead is sweet (ohhh literally).
Look at that crew all ready for… battle?
Lancelot tells us he wants to go get drunk at the big city of Wunderstadt.
I’m very worried my guys will get beheaded so I buy second-hand cloth and leather helms and shuffle the headgear around. Also get a shield for Bertolf the Brawler. I notice he’s wearing a tattered potato sack. I decide I can’t afford more armor so I tell fatty in the back to give up his beautiful thick tunic. He’ll wear the sack, but I promise he’ll be first to get new clothes as soon as we pull them off some poor sods freshly killed corpse.
Wunderstadt is a nice city full of terrified people. We’ll soon find out why I’m sure. There’s a Tavern, Fletcher, Barber, and ample trade goods here as well. Robin the Crossbowman (aka fatty) in the back is not happy. He’s been forced to wear an ugly farmer’s hat and stripped of his Robin Hoody clothes. He mumbles something about everyone looking cool but him. Click the picture below to see the new outfitting superimposed over the city.
Time to go find that tool Hoggart. Balancing the funds needed for repairs, food, and salary is challenging when you need armor so badly. Hopefully I spent wisely. Only time will tell.
