|Game 1||Game 1 Outline|
The smith brings out an intracately carved dagger and hands it to you. You take a look at it. It is certainly a masterpiece, with an extremely sharp, beautiful blade as long as your lower arm. The handle is also well-made out of a fine metal coated with a thin layer of gold. The handle fits your hand perfectly, and the hilt is a full flattened circle that protects your hand from the blade. It is obvious that the weaponsmith is truly a master at his craft.
The smith notices you admiring the dagger and smiles warmly. He tells you to "give it a slash", so you do, and are surprised to see the blade detach from the dagger and follow the path of your swing in a perfect arc, although it reaches much farther than it would had the blade not detached, then it swings up on a chain and pulls back, reattaching to the handle. You detach the blade by hand and pull out the chain to find that the chain is as long as your lower leg. You reattach the blade and put the dagger in the intracately carved sheath the smith hands you. You thank the smith, then Seth hands him his fee of 100 gold pieces.
Seth then steps forward and hands his sword to the smith. "As you know, I've had this for 10 years. The blade has gotten a little dull since you first forged it for me. I need it re-sharpened." The smith takes the sword and the 20 gold piece payment and happily proceeds to sharpen Seth's blade. The process is quite quick and takes only a couple minutes.
After Seth's blade is sharpened, the two of you step outside. Seth begins setting up camp again while you practice with your chained dagger. The smith was right when he said it would be the perfect weapon for you--you are able to use it quite well right off the bat and it fits perfectly with your fighting style. After awhile Seth speaks to you: "Milady, it grows dark. We must rest now and plan our course of action in the morning."
