Isendir in his new Armour.
i've wandered into our Elven Brother B'eldur again, he was with Old Skull Lord Dwarf again, as well as with Half-Orc by name of Pugor.
He found new leathers, and offered me his old armour that was weighing him down, excellent for fighting, scouting & rogue-work.
i've given him all of my better potions for that (worth about 2200 - 2600 gold pieces when bought, when sold much less), he considered it a fair trade.
i hope it was so, as enchanting such armour costs 2200 - 3300 gold pieces, plus materials (worth 2000 - 3000 gold pieces in this case) - and there's life force drain associated & a failure's risk - because of which enchanters charge at least three times enchanting costs, usually much more - when they want to enchant for a price at all, which is quite rare as well.
Usually enchanter performs a rite to share the life force's drain with customer equally.
If i ordered such item it'd cost me 8 000 - 10 000 gold pieces i think, and i'd have to provide materials on top of that. if enchanter failed at enchanting would cost me materials, effort & time - he or she would cover the enchanting costs & we both would cope with the life force's drain. thankfully it happens rarely.
But indeed there's discount to be considered when goods weigh you down and you want to get rid of them quickly.
i don't really need these potions so much as this armour, as it won't get depleted by drinking and should last at least for a while before i'll find better one.
B'eldur spends a lot on potions however, he's talented & active warrior-archer-scout that can also fight in melee to a degree, he needs these more than i.
