Having managed to not screw up the meeting with the metallic dragons, the crew returns to Waterdeep to inform the Council about the demands set forth by the Dragons to be met before they lent their aid.

With his share of the hoard of Arauthator, Tim (now a Drow) bought a component and reagent shop in town.

For the low price of 2500 GP, Tim bought the establishment lock, stock, and barrel. He immediately changed the name to Odds & Ends, and spent 100 GP to renovate (new paint, new uniforms, more stock, etc.) and reopened. He helped to run the store for 20 days while waiting to return to the Metallic Dragon council.

For it's first month (-ish) of operations, Tim worked hard to build a customer base, and set up the business to run smoothly while he was away.
Maintenance costs:

  • Daily Operational Costs: 60 gp [(2gp/day)*30 days]
  • Employee Salaries: 60 GP [1 skilled hireling * 2 GP/day * 30 days]
