Wealth and Misfortune PART 01
The sun shone brightly over booty bay, it was midday. From a distance all the residents of stranglethorn vale could hear the clanging of tools and bells of the ships coming and going.
Rulk’va was a merchant of booty bay, a young goblin with the world at his fingertips. Like all goblins he had learnt young how to haggle and be a cheapskate to the best of his abilities.
Rulk’va sold weapons for a living to anyone who was stupid enough to believe the stories he told about them.
Tap tap tap…
A customer! The merchant’s exclaimed, all hurryingly getting ready for the prospect of another sale, Good afternoon said a barely adult human male, “I heard from a friend about a goblin who sells the most extraordinary blue tint swords, which of you is that?”.
“That would be me my good sir” said Rulk’va, I sell short swords, broadswords, dagger’s, staves and Axes… All with a special infused dust that makes them shine brightly and as tough as a dragon’s scales… there is no stronger metal on Azeroth.
“Wow” the young man said… “Gee they aren’t too expensive are they? 500 Gold is all I have since selling my farm in Elwynn forest and my livestock to become a hero!”
“Why it’s your lucky day hero! this special sword at the moment costs only 499 Gold! A special deal for today only! Tomorrow it goes back up to 700 Gold.” Rulk’va exclaimed.
“Oh my gosh… I must have it then!” the human replied.
Rulk’va ever so happy with himself after the sale went into the next room giggling as he walked….his special dust was nothing more than crushed up blueberries, he flickered it on his weapons each morning, they were nothing more than Iron and a hilt which he bought for 35 Silver from a blacksmith in the same town.
Rulk’va spent 2 months a year in booty bay as a merchant living in a room at the inn during such a time, he would then travel the barrens with a friend, a large ogre by the name of Oog Hammerfist, Oog belonged to no tribes but was not welcome at booty bay due to his aggressive nature towards some of the races that visited there.
Rulk’va often made a year’s income so easily in the 2 months at booty bay he didn’t need to sell anything for the rest of the year, but being a goblin he couldn’t help himself, if he was ever to align himself with a faction of goblin’s he would surely be the baron of the faction due to his wealth and being friends with a very large ogre.
Oog met Rulk’va when they were both very young, Rulk’va was selling a varied selection of worn down weapons to his family very cheap, Rulk’va offered them a few more free if they could lend him an ogre of their family for a few months as a body guard, Oog being the most aggressive of the lot of them got the job, it was only when they returned after 5 months that he found his family had been wiped out by a large family of raptor’s that he decided he wouldn’t stay and instead travel the lands with Rulk’va, This worked out very well for Rulk’va because without a tribe or family Oog was a very easy target to a group of people, so he would offer his assistance almost free of charge, Oog was supplied with a strong Khorium weapon to guard Rulk’va and all he could eat in return for his loyalty and support.
Bing Bing Bing! The bells tolled as the ship arrived in Ratchet……
