A couple of only slightly sleepy guards see her on the way out.

"What're you doing heading out so early, miss?"

Permalink

"Gonna go collecting for a few hours. I saw the places the monsters appeared from on the way in so I'll know what to avoid."

Permalink

One of them holds his lantern up to her  "Well, it's your neck. And if you're out making trouble instead of scavenging - we know your face now. I dont mean anything on you in particular. Friendly warning in these times, is all."

Permalink

"Of course!" 

 

Can she retrace her steps to the Guardian she left in the woods?

Permalink

Yep! Nothing has disturbed it. And gatherable materials are visible here and there.

Permalink

She gathers! What does she find?

Permalink

Mushrooms! Apples! There's a few meat-bearing creatures in the forest if she cares to shoot them. And there's a full, delicious-looking honeycomb, but the bees might dissuade her from that one.

Permalink

She'll avoid the honeycomb -- Guardian steeds protect well against blunt force and less well against flying stinging insects. 

Permalink

Great!

Does she know how to butcher a boar or is she going to drag its half-exploded and/or bullet-holed body back to town?

Permalink

Exploded, she's saving her bullets. 

And -- well -- she has not ever actually butchered a boar. But she might be able to find some Knowsoft instructions saved on her deck. Let's see ... plumbing in several-story buildings, how to use medkits ... ah! Veterinary medicine! She picks that one, opens it, and new icons appear in her eyes that point out the names and functions of animal anatomy. She doesn't have the upper body strength to cut off its head, so she has the Guardian do that part. She should probably avoid the organs ... after she's done about half the meat she would have if she'd known what she was doing is in her pack.

The sun rises.

The meat-grilling restauraunt would be happy to buy that meat for 55 rupees... Maybe next time just bring the whole boar though, this looks like an inexperienced hack-job.

The rest of the mushrooms and fruit and so on go for another 25, even after keeping a few for snacks.

Permalink

How about her share of the loot from travelling here? Taking into account that she'll pay Link back for the room.

Permalink

Well she'll have to wake Link up for that since she was holding on to it all to prevent spoilage.

Permalink

Eighty rupees in four hours ... At this rate she won't be able to buy the armor for about two weeks. Unless she wants to work round the clock. At least during the day Link is around to help with butchering and shooting things.

Permalink

Well, this Purah that Link wanted to show her might be able to help with that? Also - there's a local blacksmith. Even if he's not the best place to go for metal things it might be worth investigating.

Permalink

She goes to ask the blacksmith about prices for scrap metal. She doesn't have to tell him what for, that would probably just scare him.

Permalink

He doesn't really sell scrap metal. Usually he buys it from people. Is there some kind of custom metal object she wants?

Permalink

"I think I could make it myself, given the right tools. What do people turn in around here?"

Permalink

"Hmph. Don't see why I should help someone outbid me for metal. Have a nice day."

Permalink

"That's fair. You too!"

 

In retrospect that was a question she should have asked Link. Oh well. Back to the room to draft harness and armor designs. 

Permalink

"If you decide you want to commission professional quality work, I'll still be here."

 

Link wakes up after another hour or so and wanders out of her room, dressed and looking groggy.

Permalink

"Heya! I went out hunting and made some rupees. How'd you sleep?"

Permalink

"Not as much as I should have, is how... And good for you... Learning the lay of the land pretty quick, eh?"

Permalink

"Mapped it. Not too hard."

Permalink

"Fair enough. So what now?"
