50,000 gold coins?
It was as if a pail of cold water had been poured over the flame in Arwen’s heart as soon as he heard the ‘deal’ Roel was offering him. He stared at Roel in utter bafflement, his first instinct being to refute the ridiculous price. However, being a professional, he reminded himself that he was dealing with a kid here and quickly calmed himself down.
“Young master Roel, you might be unfamiliar with the market price, but the amount you’re requesting is too high.”
Arwen rubbed his palms together awkwardly as he spoke with a conflicted look on his face.
“50,000 gold coins is already enough to buy a house inside the Holy Capital. For a single item, this price is far too exorbitant. Even a full set of inscribed armor wouldn’t be that expensive.”
“Inscribed armor? Excuse me, but are you trying to compare a treasure of our Ascart House to a mass produced good?” bellowed Roel furiously.
Putting his notoriety as a little tyrant to good use, he slammed his fist on the table imposingly.
“How can that sort of trash possibly be put on the same level as what I’m offering here? My father told me that it’s a one-of-a-kind good, worth at least tens of thousands!”

Seeing how far Roel was willing to go to vouch for his item, Arwen quickly began reassessing the current situation.
The acceptable price range listed by central headquarters for Request 172 was 0 to 20,000 gold coins, but the Sorofya Merchant Association had a rule where the branches purchasing the item could take the price difference as commission in order to encourage them to be more proactive in their procurement of requested items.
In view of this clause, most branches would have offered 15,000 gold coins at most so that they could take the remaining 5,000 gold coins for themselves.
However, in view of a possible long-term partnership with Roel on the sales of the Ascart House’s treasures, Arwen decided to offer a more favorable deal to him. He pondered for a moment before finally speaking up.
“I think that 18,000 gold coins is an appropriate price. Young master Roel, what do you say?”
Arwen nervously looked at the little boy before him, who appeared to not know the rules of the industry. He was worried that the latter would blow his top upon hearing the massive pric
