"The more who play the more the dealer loses out? Are you sure?"

**Damn stands up, intoxicated to that odd point where you've either become a genius or you're drunk enough to believe you've become a genius. Tonight, as with most of these nights Damn couldn't be sure. What he could be sure of though, in his mind at least, is that he was right. And people were going to know how right he was.**

"So you've got your 6 sided die and 6 tiles. If one person plays there's a 1/6 chance of them winning, and a 5/6 chance that you win. Say they bet a rava, and if they win they get another one back. Now! If 6 people play you will always pay out, because one of them is bound to choose the right symbol, unless your game is even more crooked than I first imagined. All those 6 people pay in 1 rava, which is 6 in total but you only give them back 2 if they win. So you pocket 4, every time. There's no risk! There's no justice! There's no... no... Wait! I have no drink.

**Damn stumbled towards the bar, brandishing his empty glass. Being right has ceased to become his number one concern, now he just needed to be drunk.**

A man drinking nearby looks over.

"Traditionally you roll three dice and bet on one or more symbols. The banker then pays out based on how many of each symbol are showing. You put a rava on the anchor and he pays you a rava for each anchor showing. You put two rava on clubs and two on spades and he pays you two rava for every spade or club showing. If you win anything then you get your stake back."

The man shrugs

"There are 216 different rolls. You double your money on 75 of the rolls, get 2 to 1 on 15 of the rolls and 3 to 1 on one of the rolls. However, you lose on the other 125. On average the banker should make 17 rava for every 216 games played, that's his reward for his risk."

Singe brightens immediately. "Let's play that game!"

She leans across the table and points at Damn, mouth still half full of pastry. "I bet you a drink that I win money before you win money."

Turning back to Jack, she continues happily, "And you can tell me what you want from my Lady and what you're going to do for her while we play."

Jack calls to the bar keep
A round of drinks on my tab if you please!
He pulls out 2 more dice placing them on the table
The name's Jack, friends; the best charm crafter the world has ever seen
He points to the stack of papers
That's a list of my work there and I'll beat any quote from the crafting Cult of Eremine. Also I back all my work with a 100% success guarantee

He raises his glass to Damn "Jonathan Bastard-Sword" he pronounces the 'w' very deliberated swore-d.

"The best charms crafter the world has ever seen? An intriguing claim."

A moderately attractive bar maid comes with drinks, passes them out and promptly leaves.
Interesting but true
Jack takes a swig from the overly large tankard
Can I interest you in any charms ?

John takes a drink

"Sharms? Yes...why not. Touch of Death, once per day. Easy enough?"

Jack smiles
As I said I'm the greatest charm crafter this world has seen . I CAN make anything.
Jack takes a swig of ale
Whether I WILL is a different question.
Yes I can make this item, but might I remind you that the item you want is highly illegal. The repercussions I would face for making one are unthinkable. If the price was right I'd think about it, but we are looking four figures.
A one-use-ever I'd consider at a more reasonable price, but need I remind you: This is greatly illegal.

The man laughs, slightly drunkenly.

"Single use? I wouldn't get very far making swore-ds that broke after a stringle sike!"

"What about sheet death?"

"Ill-eagle? Was ill about it? Don't want to break the law."

He stifles a hiccup.

"Don't have that sorta money anyway. Biz...busy...work's been slow. Not like the old days, me an Jack Kerniffee, Maxwell Powur, Robert Boe, Simon Sticky, Thomas Brown and Albert A'Row. First crafting cop-rat-iff, designing and perfecting the first weapons. Now every horseshoe maker is churning out swore-ds, no one makes anything new."

Singe has been testing the dice to make sure they aren't weighted. She is obviously known by the barstaff, and the barmaid brings over a clear drink without the efreet having to say what she wants. She puts it down carefully, wrinkling her nose a bit at the smell.

"Now you be careful with that. Don't go upsetting it like last week; it's dangerous."

Singe beams, pulling the drink towards her eagerly. "Are you going to play too?"

"I'd love to darling, but it's too busy tonight. And I don't get paid for another three days anyway." The woman pulls a face and heads back to the bar.

Distracted by Jack's question, Singe turns her attention to him. "Maybe we should bet charms as well as rava," she suggests brightly. "That will be more interesting. Especially illegal ones."

Picking up a pie, she breaks a piece of crust off and dips it in her cup. For a few seconds it is suddenly wreathed in flame until it disappears into her mouth. She continues talking to Jack. "Why do you want my Lady to be pleased with you?"

Jack stratens out the game mat and places the dice infront of singe
One rava a time place your bets now
