A ship comes in to the Chamark Haven, a recently founded port (if you decide to use the word loosely) on the isle of Charmark. Charmark is a island of great secrets as it seems to contain dungeons of an unknown precursor civilization. Off the ship come a few gentlemen (and ladies) of means and a larger number of unfortunate souls who had to indenture themselves to afford the voyage. A spirit of adventure drives both nonetheless, for it is known that the local guides will take you to an abandoned ruin, potentially full of treasure, for but a string of beads. A fortune can be made here as readily as a life can be lost

This is a reboot of the previous VbT theread.

What is this: This is a Risky Venture style game. You are one of the lucky few who came ashore with their freedom intact, and start with 3 Florins (₣) and nothing else (You can copy the 'Starter Items' spoiler below and rename as necessary) Your job is to buy slaves Adventurers and then outfit them to go on Expeditions to various locations.

This game is Lazy Fair, which here means that I'm going to be extremely lazy. I expect you to manage your own assets and keep them up to date. While I will provide you with the results of various actions and arbitrate disputes, it is my goal to do as little as possible. This is both to avoid burnout and to let you guys go a bit nuts with how you interact.

To facilitate this, please tag @ACTACTACT any time you want to take an action you want me to pay attention to. If you don't use the tag, and I miss your actions for the turn, it's your own fault.

I think we can begin, and hopefully more people will join later:

TURNTURNTURN
Turn 0

Spoiler: Available Expeditions (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: Indenture Auction (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: Store (click to show/hide)
A note on unbought adventurers (veteran players will already know this): adventurers that haven't been picked will be discounted in future rounds (in case of level 1 adventurers by 0.5₣ per day). However the more discounted an adventurer is, the likelier it is to go off the market (by NPC buy,) so don't wait too long. Items are never discounted.

If everyone wants to wait a turn (for adventurer prices to go down, probably) I can do a turn tomorrow. Please post if so.

I'm considering things, but I wouldn't object to a turn passing.

Well then.

ACTACTACT: Bid 2.5 for Pvt. Ugnan Trata

Obviously looking to cooperate with others. I'd much rather send Ugnan in with a second adventurer than alone, since 2HP is pretty sketchy solo. Also, it'd be good to rent a weapon from someone, so they don't need to go in with just a stick.
