Unread post by chad878262 » Sat Oct 01, 2016 11:41 am

A man with short cropped red hair and beard sets up within the bustling Wide, leaving a notice with Mudd. A sign announces Tarent Nefzen is available for Potion Brewing and Wand crafting by special order.

The young assistant jots down the list on a small parchment affixed to a wooden board.

"Miss, the Spell Mantle is of a higher circle of magic than a wand can accept. The results could be catastrophic indeed! My Master would be happy to craft a wand of least spell mantle which would still protect you from at least one spell. The other two wands should be of no problem for my master, though they may be expensive to create. If you are agreeable to the lower circle mantle I will deliver your order immediately!"


/// I should be able to get in game in about 5 hours to create the wands if you'll be available. Well send a pm later.

A tent has been seen recently near the entrance to the Friendly Arm. Tarent Nefzen can be found outside the tent, behind a table doing much business with various travelers. A sign near the tent proclaims "Tarent's fine wands and Elixir's" and beneath the sign a notice: "Bone suitable for making wands purchased at two and a half bags each"

///Elixirs up to 7th circle (and up to CL20) as well as wands available for sale.

*Much activity is seen in the tent as Talent busily works to fill orders. He is seen paying runners to get him more portion bottles and is heard asking customers for any bone wands they come across, offering discounts our gold in exchange*

Tarent is seen doing a fine bit of business over the past tenday and has posted notices at the Friendly Arm seeking apprentices interested in learning his craft and assisting with his business needs.

A hulking figure wrapped in sackcloth approaches Tarent's assistant and addresses him with a low, meek-sounding growl:
"Me hear of red-haired man make magicks stuff. Wonder if possible to craft Create Dead wand or scrolls and how much cost each."

Tarent has been seen setting up his tent outside of the Friendly Arm again. After a few months sabbatical he is again plying his wares.

///Just realized a few people responded to this thread without me replying. Apologies to Zinnestro and Rudolph as I was not in game much December and January. Also, I am pretty sure Spiderskin wands cannot be created for whatever reason...I am pretty sure it is a bug in the game, but I have never seen them created or used so assume it is not possible.

Looking to improve his trade, Tarent hires a small team to help him move his tent and goods to Baldur's Gate, where he proceeds to oversee the setting up of his tent and equipment. Signs are posted on notice boards directing those seeking arcane wands, scrolls and elixirs to seek his tent within the famous bazaar. The sign also states that he is currently in need of several components if any are seeking employment and have the skills to obtain such rare items.

Tarent is seen at the wide and at time on the top floor of Sorcerous Sundries, working furiously at his craft. It seems he recently received a large order for potions, some rumors suggest as many as 400! It seems his business has gotten a boost it needed and he seems pleased -- if very busy!

A sign posted where his tent is usually found is often posted indicating he is working to fill an order, but any notices left will be fulfilled as time allows.

///If anyone is interested in purchasing arcane wands, scrolls or elixirs/potions, this is still an active character and available to hire for the purposes of consumables crafting.

Tarent is seen speaking with the one some would know as Caed Wynter-Rose after receiving notice that he had procured several of the ingredients he had need of. Tarent explained to Caed how fortuitous his timing was, as Tarent was bereft of necessary components; having recently filled an order for some 400 potions of True Strike. After a bit more small talk the two exchanged several items. Tarent was provided with many mosses, mushrooms, and far less mundane (and much grosser!) items such as Carrion Crawler Brains, Mimic Tongues and the like. In exchange Caed was given 5,000 gold to share with the Windspell Adventuring Group as well as several quality magical items with which to further improve his teams abilities.

After making the exchange Tarent happily heads back toward his tent and alchemy lab in The Wide, looking to do more business in arcane wands, elixirs and scrolls.
