Clothing Shop Hires Extra Help
(Therenborough, Therengia: 209 Arhat 355)
I met an interesting fellow on the street one warm, rainy afternoon. Not your average adventurer, for he held no guild affiliation, nor did he wear any armor.
I watched him a little, and he seemed to be applying beads to a tunic! Wondering just what someone was doing sitting on the street in the rain beading, I took a seat. Further conversation revealed that the man had just travelled from the Crossing to be in the employ of the local clothing shop. Apparently, the shop has been innundated with custom orders. The man went on to tell me that not just anyone could order these custom things, you had to ‘know someone’.
It was getting toward his dinnertime, and I was tired from hunting most of the afternoon, so I didn’t press him on the details … Now I just wish I could remember his name!
