Amber smiled as she watched Mara's enthusiasm for the new weapons. She climbed onto the side of the cart, bending over the side of it she grabbed the book to note down how much they had made, and placed the gold into the chest, she quickly slid back down and turned around as Starkad offered to repay her kindness. "And what did you have in mind, good sir?" she asked, the air about her changing from friendly to slightly regal, although a slight giggle showed she may have been putting it on slightly, possibly.
Lucine pretended to look shocked. "You insinuate the daughter of a Redguard tactician and sword dancer would only be a little bit experienced in some of these weapons?" she asked, smiling. "To be honest I am good with one-handed swords, like my mother and father, but two-handed swords, axes and maces are not my strong suits. Don't get me wrong if it came to it I could use any one-handed weapon well enough but swords are where I shine" she said, looking at the backswords he was studying. "Those backswords are, if tales are to be believed, the weapons of an old vampire assassin from the 2nd era, around the time of Molag Bal's attempt to combine our realm with Coldharbour, and the rubies contain the blood of his first, and last victims. But those are just stories told to drum up the price. Right" she said, smiling a bit.
Adra tilted her head and watched as the strange elf woman stripped herself off, as with most people in this area she didn't wear any regular clothes, or a padded gambeson, under her armour. She averted her eyes to study the strange armour. "Looks to be moonstone and steel....gold accents....definitely elven...almost ancient Aldmeri or Alyeid..." she said, mostly to herself. Lucine looked around the side of the cart at the armour. "If you're right then it would be worth a pretty septim, elven armour alone can fetch upwards of 15 septims just for the boots and sabatons alone" she said. Adra nodded and moved to the money chest and came back with a pouch of gold. "50 septims in total then?" she inquired. Lucine nodded and proceeded to see if she had anything she could give the near naked elf woman for clothes, if not just for warmth in this part of Skyrim.
