I enter the store. "Let's not forget to get a map ofthe region Azulan."
  23h
"I myself would like to find a couple healing potions."
  20h
"Ah, I will take both. Thank you."
  17h
"What if I simply went back and gave the shopkeeper the gold I owe him?"
  16h
This is an outrageous extortion.
  16h
I walk in and assess the situation, then move to the register to assist my companions in negotiating
  16h
"How much would the fees bring the total up to?"
  16h
"You will not cheat us today sir. We will pay a fair price and a fair tax but nothing more. Mark my words, your days of transactional tyranny will end soon!"
  15h
I put the listed amount plus 10% on the table. "You will either accept a fair and just trade or you will be thought a thief. Which do you prefer?"
  15h
Intimidation if I must.
  15h
I'll try to assist if I can, I don't want to draw my shortsword but I'll just put my hand on the handle as he's intimidating, and walk to where I can see behind the counter
  15h
Nothing overt. If he chooses to hostile that's his choice.
  15h
"That is what a reasonable neutral third party would call you I believe. Do you enjoy being thought of as a crook?" I do not react to his assistant's actions.
  15h
"There seems to be some trouble with the current transaction. I am unsure if this tab system works. I can give you the gold the item is worth, and let you square things with Grumsley."
  15h
"Business practices? This is a criminal racket. You do not enjoy the right to be thought of as a business. Explain yourself. Why do you do this to people? It is killing the town."
  15h
"With your fees I am uncertain I could afford the potion. I feel strange having left the shops I wished to purchase it from with the shop keeper refusing my gold."
  14h
"Of you would willingly accept this model, which So clearly endless your fraud and its associated economic destruction then you are complicit with criminals. Why not resist?"
  14h
"I believe there is a Better Coin Handling system. One which is fair and enables people to thrive, not be choked to death by fees."
  14h
"Clearly you have misgivings about this system. And you're clearly a mighty fighter not easily reckoned with. Use your strength for the good of others. Become a champion of the people.
  14h
It seems to me that you can take on an army and a half all by yourself, right fellows?"
  12h
"What can we say that isn't already spoken of by the dismal state of this place and its people?" I cover the map and my share. "Have courage and don't the right thing
  12h
"Have courage and do the right thing. If you want to fight, fight those that seek your criminal obedience."
  12h
I regard the assistant on my way out. "You will find Grumsley that you won't be alone."
  5h
"If I do not wish to pay the fees to Sheriff Mow then why should I want to support this tab system that pays fees to you?" I turn to leave to the general store to return the potion.
  5h
(Jist now noticed the potion had been included in the price.)
  4h
So when I turn to leave it is to follow Azulan, not to go back to the general store.
