At the table, Farid holds the book open so Tash and Emma can look at it.
Farid: Time to pick your starting gear. Fill your packs with items you’ll need in the deep dungeons.
Tash: Wow, mirrors are expensive.
Emma gets an evil grin, and Farid looks worried.
Emma: And we can fill our packs with anything on this list?
Faird: Yes, but trying to minmax can have some nasty consequences.
Emma: It’ll be fine!
In the game, Emma and Tash stand before a group of villagers, loaded down with mirrors for sale.
Emma: Emma and Tash, Mirror Merchants at your service.
A villager points and shouts in alarm.
Villager: Goblin attack!
Goblins rush through, smashing mirrors and harassing the villagers. Emma and Tash hide in a barrel.
Tash: How many years bad luck is that?
Emma: Maybe we could get a do-over on starting gear?
