The clanging of a hammer and metal rang out at the smithy as Karnage worked the forge. He was allowed to work there for the day, and after spending a couple of hours the days before mining ore, he wanted to work the metal into something. Not too far away was a box of ingots and leather strips, as well as some gems and other random bits of rocks. Moonstone, Orichalcum, and even a few Ebony as well as other bits from his time. He also found some Geode veins and found himself some rather valuable gems, from rubies to soul gems. Currently Karnage was smelting his ores into ingots as he listen to the fires roar. In the distance, he also heard the song of a bard, but he wasn't close enough to listen. Maybe once he was done here, he'd go and use some of his septims to buy himself a drink and meal. Maybe he'll just move to the next down.
After a couple of hours of smelting, Karnage had himself a nice collection of ingots; Steel, Orichalcum, Moonstone, Silver, Ebony. He also had something that he only wished he knew how to work with, and played with it in his hands; Dragon Bone. He found it while seeking shelter from the blizzard, were he stumbled into a cave invested with bandits. After dealing with them (And salvaging everything he could from them), he found the preserved corpse of a dragon. Well, mostly preserved; the bandits did a number to salvage as much of the corpse as they could, but something told him that none of them knew how to carve a dragon. Still, he took what he could, and he found a sizable piece that he could make something from it. Maybe a dagger. Or even a sword. If he knew what he was doing, anyways. He just put the bone away along with the ingots, as he began to forge some steel into something he could sell here. So continued the hammering and hitting of iron and steel, and after just an hour of time, he had a full set of armor, and enough daggers to arm every man and woman in the village. Now he needed to find someone who would buy all this...
Business was slow. Lucilia was allowed to sing and service the Burning Dragon Inn, but traffic wasn't very great. Most of the patrons stayed only for the drink or to return to her room. She made about 20 gold so far when a patron requested her to play a song on her lute, and that's about it. 20 gold could buy her a room and a meal, but she needed at least 60 gold minimum to travel to the next town and buy any needed food and supplies, but she'd like to have more. But for now, Lucilia sat alone in the Inn, drinking what was left of her cheap mead. After she finished her bottle, Lucilia wondered around, snooping through some rooms. She saw one woman in the room, and Lucilia knew her as the hunter who came to town. Too bad Lucilia might not be able to eat anything she brings in. While she lingered outside the hunter's room, Lucilia broke out into song. "A word in your ear if I may..." Lucilia strummed her lute and cleared her throat. There was a new song she heard along the road, and she wanted to see how someone might react to it.
"Well met, stranger
Elated to make your acquaintance
Now, may I entertain you with some quotations-over-cadence?
You see, I bear some rare amazing information
And you look like someone who is used to strange situations
There is a hidden portal within the Bard's College
I was brought through, an immortal to impart knowledge
About an other-wordly form of Redguard sonnet
Where took a thumping drum beat and said bars on it"
