Excellent. James also joined via FB, so we have one more slot free, but whether it is filled or not, I will begin to create parties and send them on quests (and thus shopping) very soon.

There are only 4 quests at the moment, so don't be surprised by duplicates.

James is still around? I haven't talked to him for a long time now.

Sure he is. We've been in touch on and off for almost 20 years now, if I recall correctly, back from SpellMaster times.

I've created a board for the playtest, and will split off some topics so this one can stay to be about people interested in playtesting.

...and for the first time in possibly two years, I have ventured to the forums again! Has been a very busy time for me (end of a 10 year relationship 3 years ago, then last year I got married, organised a National event for 500 people from around the country, took voluntary redundancy from my job, now this year I have moved to Scotland and have a baby due to arrive in September...)
So my time has not been as free as it used to be :)
I was only thinking earlier it was around 20 years now since I first started playing SpellMaster (Around '96 or '97 maybe...)

Anyway, hello to everyone again, hope you're all well!

We have one slot still open, and a group of adventurers waiting for a shop to do shopping in...

Slot still available? If so,  I would like to join with Penchant's Emporium of Battle and More.

We had one guy signing in on Facebook, but he hasn't shown up yet. I only have space for 5 shops in the example town, but I'll give you his and if he shows up I'll find a solution.

Welcome to the game, post what you want to buy with your initial 1000 gold. List of items you can stock is here: http://shopkeeper.lemuria.org/api/items

More competition?! One advice, buy a lot of potions.

I would be that Facebook guy. I'm the admin of the Mystic Arena fan page. Anyway, I had no time to get on the forum during the weekend unfortunately...

As mentioned on Facebook, the shop's name is Solid Simon's World O'Stuff

As for the description:

Solid Simon's shop seems to be far bigger than you'd expect before going in. Inside, he's obviously tried to instill a sense of trust in his customers, with badly faked framed customer testimonies such as "I only managed to defeat the Wraith Lord of Addhur because Solid Simon helped me outfit our party! - Ghurrbad, Westlands Barbarian Warlord", and "If you can't find it here, you don't need it - Orghal the Mad, Priest of Senfa the Dread Lord of Gibbering Madness" hung over the counter. Cheap oak panelling lines the walls and an old chandelier casts a broken crown of light over the assorted weapons, armors and other wares Simon has for sale. He's tried to create departments for the various categories of stuff he has for sale, but he's obviously not good at the upkeep. Swords mingle with ready-packed meals, potions lie scattered across several bins, and god knows how many rings can be found if you bow down low enough to look beneath their display stand.

Inventory:

1 Ring of Nimbleness (150)
2 Scrolls of Power (60)
2 leather armours (20)
1 +1 leather armour (40)
5 mana potions (50)
5 healing potions (50)
2 Quaffs of Power (80)
2 Quaffs of Speed (80)
1 Quaff of Resilience (40)
1 Ring of Protection (120)
2 +1 Axes (80)
1 +1 Staff (50)
3 Swords (60)
4 Knives (20)
+---------------------------
900

It's changed a bit over the weekend...

You now need bits from here: http://shopkeeper.lemuria.org/api/sections

To be able to sell the merchandise from.

1 Quaff of Power (ID 38 - 40 Gold)

2 Axes (ID 6 - 20 Gold)
2 Swords (ID 9 - 40 Gold)

Wonderful. Welcome to the game. Some notes:

* Delivery of your items will take a little while (3 ticks)
* which is why you don't yet see it in your shop view, here: http://shopkeeper.lemuria.org/api/shops/6
* for everything, if you include ID numbers, it makes my life so much easier. Check James postings in the Heroes of Westhaven topic for an example that works really good for me.

Will amend the post to include IDs, no problem. And I'll take a page from James for future posts.
