EDIT: Forgot to change the inventory. New item added.

They should inquire about the mage, a place to stay, the dark, heroic trenchcoat to flap dramatically in the breeze, and the computer.

They should attempt to take a rubbing of the door carving.

They should also inquire about the identity of the silhouetted figure.

Corious, Bryan, and Grandpa Charlie entered into the shop. It had grown dark enough outside that their eyes needed no time to adjust to the dimly lit room. Their host was dressed in a robe as if he was about to go to bed, and he had turned his back on them when they came in. Walking over to a table, back still turned, he began to light a lantern as he spoke, "What brings you here at this time of night, good sirs?"
"My name is Corious Millerson," Corious replied, "My friends and I just arrived in town and need a place to stay the night. Somebody said you could help. We were also told we might find a mage here to aid us in our quest, and finally, I'd like to access a computer if I can, and my friend would like to get a trench coat if you sell those here."
The man got the lantern burning, and lifted it up off the table, "You seek the mage?"
"Yes, we'd like to speak with him."
"Well," The man turned to face them, "You're talking to the right guy!" he grinned, whipping up a pair of jazz hands; the lantern flicking from the motion. Corious, Bryan, and Grandpa Charlie stared at him. "Well you sure got here fast!" Corious said, "Where's the mage?"
"That's me!"
"You're the mage?"
"I'm the mage."
"A musical mage?" Bryan smirked.
"Don't forget the juggling!" The mage replied.
There was silence for a moment. Bryan was still smirking, Grandpa Charlie was starting to doze off, and Corious finally laughed and said, "Well, Mr. Odious, we need to talk."

After a while, they had given a run through of their story and how they were trying to retrieve Corious' grandmother. Mel the Musical Mage sat back at the end and paused to think for a moment. His face was solemn. His humorous joking manner was gone as he sat and stared at the floor, his chin resting between his thumb and index finger. "Well," he said quietly, "You're talking to the right guy." He glanced up and quickly shook a couple of pathetically sober jazz hands before going back to his thoughtful pose.
"You're not very encouraging." Bryan said. Grandpa Charlie was asleep by this time, so he didn't have anything to say. "I'm sorry," Mel replied, "But I myself haven't had the best encounters with the kidnappers you're after." He leaned forward in his chair and clasped his hands together, "They came into our village one night, silent as ghosts. Somebody spotted them and began to make a ruckus for reasons I don't know, but it must have been obvious that the invaders were up to no good. Anyway, by the time I awoke, my wife as gone from our room, along with various other people from the village. The invaders scattered instantly and were gone without a trace like vapor into the air. All that was left were markings on our doors."
"We saw those on the door of my grandparent's house too!" Corious stated, "But there were two monsters. I only saw one on your door."
"Hmmm," Mel went on, "I don't understand any of it, myself. I've searched for my wife for months, but we have nothing to go off of. No trace of the invaders. Search parties have gone out countless times and retrieved nothing. I've about given up hope. Only my songs keep my spirits up now."

They sat in silence for a bit until Mel finally said he was tired and needed to sleep. He showed them to the guest rooms and then went to his own room for the night. Before going to bed, however, Corious found a sheet of paper (hoping it wasn't some weird mage's cursed magical sheet of paper that would eventually bring doom upon them), whipped out their writing utensils (from their inventory, silly!) and went outside to get a rubbing of the carving on the door for future reference. Afterwards, he shoved it into one of their folders (from their inventory, silly!) and was about to shut the door when he noticed something move outside across the street. It spotted him staring and dashed into the black alleyway.

Knick said...

Corious should put on his Mood Ring of Illumination and run down the alley, prepared to crush the shadowy figure with his staff.

second_clone said...

But he should make sure he's wielding his staff.

Knick said...

afterwards, he should inquire about some sort of encyclopedia of mythical creatures in which he could look up these beasts

Father Cory said...

Then Corious should realize that another of their team is missing.

second_clone said...

Then he should create some sort of magical potion using mashed potatoes.

second_clone said...

And perhaps they can run into a crazed ice fisher who mentions Lake Minnetonka every other sentence.

second_clone said...

Corious should walk up to a stranger and say, "Every time I see K I think Potassium," just to see how he reacts.

second_clone said...

If this takes too much longer I'm going to post something REALLY crazy.

second_clone said...

Corious decides to use his quill (under 'writing utensils') to slit the bulging pockets of a wealthy looking man in hopes of getting at what is inside.

Knick said...

corious has many voices in his head. perhaps he should stop listening to the one called second_clone.

Kniclone said...

Sir Brian the Manly decides to put the "comments" link at the top of the episodes instead of the bottom.

He also visits for a sort of copycat of The Tales of Corious Millerson...The Tale of Thorvald the Great and Mighty aka TOTTGAM.

Kniclone said...

And he should tell Kniclone how to get that cool background behind the text.

Syonik said...

wow, almost two months of just standing there, watching an alley.

Finally, realize that all the various bookmakers have their own rules and policies regarding how they settle bets done through arbitrage sports betting when they have such irregular results. As with the advice on pricing, be sure to check the rules of the individual bookmakers before you place your bets.

Another way of identifying the best sports betting odds is to examine the money lines on the various sports books online. The quickest and simplest way to understand how to compute the odds and comprehend how the money line bet works is to take into consideration the amount of money one would have to bet in order to win one hundred dollars. Normally this figure is shown as a negative and a positive with the negative number indicating what one must wager to win x amount of dollars and the positive showing what one would win.

9.) Similarly, chat rooms also offer different incentives. Some chat rooms offer free game for playing and chatting for certain number of hours on their site. Some offer incentives for referring friends to their site. Such incentives offer extra chances to play and therefore, more chances for winning a game of online bingo. You also get to enjoy bingo games for longer periods. [url=]free online bingo games[/url] There are 75 balls in all with numbering from one to 75. Hence, the probability of any random number to come in the first draw is 1/75. There are three accepted tests for assuring randomness of the balls. These are:
o Numbers ending in 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, etc. are in equal proportions.
o High and low numbers occur in equal balances.
o Odd and even numbers occur in equal balances. [url=]free bingo cash[/url] The easiest way to avoid falling victim to a scam is to know the site on which you choose to play. One of the ways this can be accomplished is to talk to other people who play online Bingo to get a feel for the sites they use and what kind of experiences they have had with the site. In most cases, word of mouth is going to be your most accurate means of determining the legitimacy of a Bingo or any other gaming site. Of course, if you are using a free site, knowing about the experiences that others have had with the site is not quite as important, although you do not want to waste your time with something that is unlikely to produce any beneficial results. Of course, a free site is not going to give you much in the way of monetary compensation, and the prizes may be minimal, but for those who are addicted to the game, the challenge is there.

Bingo is a beautiful game of luck, which involves patience, rapid coordination between hearing and searching out the numbers and lots of fun. As with all gambling bingo is totally addictive and you should be careful of its grip on you!

The organization offers one [url=]gia re hang ngay[/url] for every functioning day in each and every of the marketplaces it serves. The Groupon capabilities as an assurance deal employing ThePoint's program: if a particular assortment of men and women indicator up for the provide you, then the provide will get available to all if the predetermined minimum is not content, no 1 receives the deal that day. This minimizes possibility for retailers, who can offer with the coupon codes as amount reductions as successfully as item sales advertising and marketing resources. Groupon helps make funds by retaining roughly fifty % the money the shopper pays for the coupon.

For situation in point, an $eighty therapeutic massage could be purchased by the shopper for $40 through Groupon, and then Groupon and the retailer would split the $forty. That is, the retailer delivers a massage valued at $eighty and will get about $20 from Groupon for it (under a fifty%/fifty% split). Or, if $240 really worth of residence portray firms is purchased by the buyer for $50 through Groupon, then the business receives $25 and Groupon keeps $twenty five. The purchaser will get the therapeutic therapeutic massage, or the home portray assist, in these illustrations, from the retailer for which they at first paid out $40 (or $fifty) to Groupon. There are particular firms to which Groupon to get started with did not supply you its suppliers, which contains having images ranges and strip golf equipment even so, taking images ranges have been showcased on Groupon.

Not like categorized advertising, the provider supplier does not shell out out any upfront cost to take part: Groupon collects personalized data from completely ready consumers and then contacts only men and women buyers, mainly by every day e mail, who could perhaps be intrigued in a distinct resolution or company.

Groupon employs a large quantity of copywriters who draft descriptions for the offers showcased by electronic mail and on the internet site. Groupon's advertising textual content for the 'deals' has been discovered as a contributing factor to the recognition of the site, showcasing a exceptional blend of comprehensive fact-analyzing and witty humor.

Owing to Groupon's industry being mainly composed of female buyers, the bargains are typically focused on the properly currently being, well being and splendor marketplaces.

There are possible problems with the company product. For case in stage, a effective offer you could briefly swamp a small organization with also several consumers, jeopardizing a chance that consumers will be dissatisfied, or that there won't be enough item to fulfill the need. Gap, a substantial garments retailer, was able to manage 445,000 price reduction codes in a countrywide deal (even with the fact that it seasoned server troubles at 1 place), but a scaled-down firm could become out of the blue flooded with customers. one espresso store in Portland, Oregon struggled with an boost in clients for a couple of months, when it purchased around to one,000 Groupons on the a solitary working day it was presented, in accordance to 1 report. In response to similar troubles, Groupon officers stage out that 'deal' subscriptions need to have to be capped in progress to a sensible assortment.
