Pg 56: Lost for Words
This week in Epic Fail: Amuletts tries to negotiate a good price for their services, and gets more than she expected.
Creator’s Commentary: It’s no secret that I use artistic liscence on my pages. Not on this one. This is almost word-for-word how it played out. 20 thousand gp was the most anyone had hever seen in game, so it was flabbergasting Simone (the Mage NPC) would just agree to it. So Amuletts stuttered… because I stuttered.
I might revise Amuletts’ expression in the last panel, it didn’t really turn out like I intended.
AMULETTS: We'll work for... (Thinking) I'll offer an outrageously high figure then she'll haggle...
(Aloud) Twenty-Thousand Gold Pieces.
MARTIN: (Thinks) WOW!!
AMULETTS: Really?! Um... I mean twenty tousand each of course.
DIRK: (With Martins arm clamped across his mouth) Mm mmm mm mmph?
SIMONE: Of course.
AMULETTS: Oh! Um... (stammering) um-um-um-um-um-um...
CLODIN: In ADVANCE?
SIMONE: Half in advance, half on delivery. Is cash acceptable?
