[Port Alyxandrya] Ocean View (Razu's Place)

 
Property purchased here in the Summer of Era XXII

Ocean View

On the edge of the Harbour district of Port Alyxandrya stood a single story building that was constructed from the same white stone as most of the City of Queens. Salt lines its windows, and anyone peering inside would discover that the house held a bathroom, kitchen, two bedrooms and a common room. Acknowledging the importance of a good name for a house, especially if it would need to be sold one brightening, the inhabitants had decided to call it "Ocean View."

Upon entry, the first room is the common room, which holds a simple wooden table and six chairs. Light cotton white curtains, in need of a wash, hang on every window. Directly adjacent is the kitchen, filled with only the essentials. A wooden cabinet held a few plates, glasses and mugs, and some cheap cutlery. Neither of the men living here is fond of cooking, and prefer the food in nearby taverns. A broom stood in the corner of the kichen, used to get rid of the worst dust and dirt.

The first, smaller, bedroom was occupied by an old man called Schubert, who was skilled in mysticism but as crazy as a loon. A plain bed and a wooden chest was all he required in life. The second room was Razumikhin's, a cheerful and opportunistic young man who tried to make a living by talking people out of their crowns. His room held a larger bed, and a wardrobe that was filled with clothing and disguises. A desk stood in the corner of the room, a mirror hanging above it.

It wasn't all rosy though. On most brightenings, anyone paying a visit would notice the smell of the harbour that filled the neighbourhood. Should they be lucky enough to spend the darkening in the house, they'd be kept awake by a mysterious lady's voice that Razu had grown used to, and Schubert sometimes talked to for candlemarks on end.
 

OOC: Feel free to visit! When Razumikhin is not at home, you can probably find him, or his friend Schubert, at the Opportunity Office in Ziel Aerca.

TS: Winter of Era XXIII

Life had been kind to Razumikhin over the last months, and had deemed it acceptable for his pockets to fill up a little. Several expeditions had provided monetary rewards of some kind, and he'd secure a fortune when coming in second at a gambling tournament in Ziel Aerca. Aside from his figurative pockets, however, the swindler had also found his actual pockets filling up with trinkets and gadgets. Unwilling to fully rely on his reflexes and prowess in combat, Razu had sought out alchemists and gadgeteers, and had acquired some tricks that could assist him in any direct confrontation.

The problem with all this was that there was no system, and things all simply accumulated in those few pockets that his trousers and coat provided. Everything in excess was forced to be stored in the backpack that he typically carried, outside of immediate reach. A solution had recently come to mind, but Razumikhin knew very well that he needed support from a specialist. The Gilded Slipper, in the Mercantile district of the city, provided custom tailoring, and it was there that the young man placed his order for a coat with a dozen pockets - some obvious, others hidden from view.

NBJust providing a little IC evidence of the transaction. Wealth level at the time of the purchase is Steel
