he holds up a hissing vial "a potion for your lover's pleasure?"
then points to a beautifully carved swan shaped vial "a poison for your enemies? anything?"

“no the information yiu have given me is both helpful and unhelpful, I feel like i have found out more questions with this. Thank, I will be around if you need need me to undertake any thing as per our agreement.”

Deep i have thought johnny gos back outside the school and sits by storm thinking.

as Johnny exits the mage nods and quickly stores all of the equipment in his chest... which fades away like he does...

In the security room 20 mins later the alarms will read some sort of blip in that room, but all they will find is a beaten up old table and a chair


Tybalt I could not resist the irony of putting that there... I thought of you when I put it.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

the mage leans close and whispers

Johnny ONLY! DO NOT LOOK!:
PM info... like this if you looked and were not Spug

Then sits back. "Is there anything else you would like to buy?"

Johnny opens it and reads three pages at random, there seems to be layers of text, in a vastly dense from.

"This book and the key to open it for one lesser favor, on agreement this book becomes mine with condition to read and use as and when I see it, that means the key to its lock being part of the book and also covered by our pre-agreed on stranded contract."

Johnny smiles that smile.

"Deal," the old man smiles as they shake hands again. "I have one last thing to sell to you. This information comes from a reliable yet undiscloseable source at a very steep price, one major favor and one regular favor. this agreement must be made before I tell you any information other than this:"

Johnny:
"it is about your family"

EDIT

** spoiler omitted **

Johnny add,
"Good that will be the standing deal unless we bother agree a change to it as per the agreement for ea..."

Then s/he eyes go wide as s/he see's the book.

"Pops wha..."

Johnny takes the book, Technomages: The arts of Technology and Magic.

"So there is a way to link tech and magic, coooool"

S/he looks at the cover, they are indescribably dense in text and some new form of math.

"Can I look at its contents if I agree?"

Johnny finds it hard to pull s/he eyes away from the book.

The peddler pulls out a key...

"look at any three pages of the text. No more... then tell me if you think it is worth the price"

The mage sets the key on the table


I'm much worse than Chaotic or Lawful Evil.... :)

In case anyone else is getting ideas of making contracts/bartering in this manner... You had better have as good of an IN CHARACTER reason to be this logical/contractual as Johnny....

"O your a sneaky one, but I can see that could give you a great number of attempts on my part so how about this as a little caveat, if the next reduced the level of favor is also a wash out, then it is lost, this them means you have to ask what can be achieved and not ask for a vast number of impossible undertakings by me. Deal"

He takes the old wizened hand.

The man grins and shakes

"This shall be the baseline for this and future deals, Any changes can be brought up before the sealing of the next contract."

Then opens the thin wooden case containing a book labled: Technomages: The arts of Technology and Magic

"This is worth a lesser favor."

[Edit]

The book is old but in good condition... on the front is a lock holding the book shut,

"I think this book should interest you..."


Johnny Panic wrote:
SHOP!

Shop?

he does understand the contract... your holding a copy of the terms in your hand lol

"I have one...

"There has to be a limit on the number of attempts, how meany do you suggest three shall we say?"

"Three attempts it is... But only if, in the event that you are unable to complete such a task, I reduce the level of favor owed by one degree, and the process continues until you are either able to complete the task assigned or you cannot complete the lowest level of favor, which means I misjudged one such as you.... this is so that I do not lose what I have sold for nothing..."

The wizened old man holds out his wrinkled palm

Johnny thinks for a moment then says.

"To make clear I agree that I will only do 'any' favors that I agree to undertake freely and with out compulsion of any kind. That you will agree to a number of points here I will now list in this our verbal agreement. Per favors asked you of me, that you will give me full and complete disclosure of the details and facts you know of, of said favor and any and all consequences you know of that may arise from me undertaking said favor. That one 'reasonable' attempt will be made to undertake said favor. 'reasonable' indicating 'effort' with in the limits of time and capability surrounding the said favor. You also agree that favor are 'not' transferable to a second party under any deals, circumstances, inheritances and so on, they each is a discreet undertaking on its own. You also agree to be honest in the representation of your intent with in the defined parameters and specifications of the said favors when informing me of the 'scope' of said favor singular favors plural. That you agree that the term 'favor' and 'favors' being a Verb as defined as only, 'something that you do for someone in order to help them' and not any other, notably favors, the opportunity to have sex with someone. Also that any favors agreed on may be ended be ether party at any point when one of the aforementioned points can be said to be applicable. I on my part agree not to 'Tell' others of the what has been asked for as a 'favor' undertaken or not. Last of all that if other special circumstances should arise they to must be taken into account with all do diligence in regard to this agreement between us. So that all being said, do you agree?"

Johnny offers his hand for a hand shake.

"I have one portion of this deal I do not agree with... you undertake "one reasonable attempt" to complete the favor, I believe that to be unfair on my part... I did not make "one reasonable attem pt" to gather the information and items for which we are trading...All else I find satisfactory..."

The wizard looks at him shrewdly
Please dont make me read lawyer speech again... You just about broke my brain

The old man laughs, "I will give full disclosure of what I know for the price of a lesser favor, because you are paying for my information on it as well." The old man reaches down and sets a small flat wooden box on the table as well

Johnny looks at the old man

"My option to refuse must stand, no matter the size of favor. I will not be bound to an action I do not have the freedom to say no to, sorry this is none negotiable. If you insist I must agree with out have the option to refuse, then it makes me think you know you will be asking me to do things that may compromise my ethics or other such things I not wish to do, so I feel I would have made the right call in not agreeing. You must trust me to say yes on some things, just as I trust, you will give me, goods and information of use. What you say next, will show me your intent, and if you work on trust or not, respect freedom or not."

Johnny gos to walk away.

The old man says "you always have the choice too say no to the favor I ask for....if such a task is unappealing to you....but you may never tell another of the prices I ask for... Deal? " the wizard seems happy to compromise

The scroll reads unlike every other store in this universe I Allow every product I exchange to be used before I demand payment... The price of the glasses is a minor favor to me, able to be called in to be fulfilled at any later time. Do you accept my offer? "

The old man says nothing until Johnny looks up and then says "do not forget I have two more things you desire... Thisis the least expensive."

Johnny looks up a shrewd look on Johnnys face, he chuckles to the old man,

"Yeerrr, sorry pops, No deal, open ended deals like, end in bad places, know what I mean, you have to be nuts to agree to them, I know it was chains and whips last time I agreed to something like that, you old pervert. So how about this, you give them me all you say I need and if and when you ask me for a favor, minor or otherwise, you give full disclosure of any possible consequences you know of and I have the right to refuse, how dos that sound, Kinky magic man?"

The old man laughs, "I will give full disclosure ofwhat I know for the price of a lesser favor, because you are paying for my information on it as well."

The old man reaches down and sets a small flat wooden box on the table as well

Johnny looks at the scroll and takes it in hand

"Is that Animal skin?, huur,"

s/he looks at it, unable to read it.

"look I kind of need the 'magic' goggle because I can not read 'magic' so should I not out the glasses on 1st?"

s/he takes the Glasses and put them on,

"Woo! that's freaky, "
Johnny reads the scroll

Johnny looks at the wizard

Johnny walks up to the cloaked wizard.

"Ok I know this is going to sound mad but the arrows seem to thing you have some magic goggles or reading magic, odd I know but you see I just can't see the bloody pages in the magic books, so my fine mage of wonders, dos thou have such a magics?"

Johnny smiles that smile and waits.

"I do." The wizard says, "I also possess information you seek... That comes in two forms, the first is made of wind, the second of wood."

The wizard unfolds a scroll onto the table... Written in the language of magic...

"read this, then put these" sets glasses gently on the table, "on"

Pulls out a black pipe and puffs out a cloud of acrid black smoke

WoM your own

In the center of the room is a cloaked wizard with a small table sitting in front of him, there is a small amount of vials on the left and a pair of wands on the right, a pair of octagonal reading glasses sit on a small pillow in the center of the table

"hello young one" the wizened old man says pushing the brim of his midnight blue hat back
