Postby Bifrost Janger » Sun Dec 22, 2019 11:27 am

Tacked to Dundee's notice board, this missive reads;

DID YOU KNOW?!
It takes the average Initiate five turns to save up enough plat to buy a turnip?

67plat for a ruddy pod of peas!!!?

VEG FOR THE MANY, NOT JUST THE FEW!

DUNDEE PEASANTS REVOLT!

The peasants are the ones charging those amounts. They don't have to pay it because they eat their own produce.

... Sounds as though you're in on the conspiracy to me, Topaz. Trying to pull the wool over our eyes!

Is Weaver the grocer related to Tess Weaver in your guild?!

1728p 5g 24s is the cost of eating your five a turn for just a week in Dundee. Just how much has your guild embezzled?!

Yes, Tess Weaver and Avery Weaver are related, although we are not sure to what degree.

I don't think there is a "conspiracy." Until recently, farming was dangerous, because farmers in the fields were always being attacked by demons. I always thought that was why the price of produce was so outrageous (yes, I agree); the farmers were charging hazard pay.

Maybe now that things are calmer someone could suggest that they might make as much money, if not more, by making their produce more accessible.

A new notice has been tacked beneath the original:

Mister Bifrost Janger would like to remind the grocers of Dundee that it is Veganuary!!!
