Buyer's Market Pawnshop (163)

A cluttered, poorly organized pawnshop that deals in every imaginable commodity. Garden variety items are kept on display in the showroom (old furniture, clothing, music discs, videos, household items, some basic weapons, etc.), but the big ticket items (guns, electronics, body armor, jewelry, rare books, artifacts, new and used cybernetics, etc.) are kept in a showroom behind the M.D. plexiglass-enclosed counter. The Buyer's Market pays 20% to 40% of market value for goods, holds them for 15 days and resells them for 25% below the market cost . If the individual beats the deadline they must pay a 10% premium to buy back their former property. This pawnshop is owned by a shady, sharp-nosed Rat mutant or D-Bee named Fenrick the Fence.

+2% to all rolls to find non-magic of any type or rarity

Perception: 1d20+1 = 12
Just in Case: 1d20 = 20/1d100 = 71
Conditions: Recovers M.D.C. at a rate of 2D6+3 per day, Sixth Sense, MercTown Native.


Vinnie parks outside of the pawnshop and eases himself out of the vehicle, locking the door as he exits. Won't be here too long. Vinnie walks in and sighs. Been a little bit since I've been here. Wonder if the stock has changed much? Vinnie thinks to himself as he makes his way across the store to the clothing section. Hope he has something in my size. Vinnie begins to peruse the clothes looking for enough to make himself another outfit or two.


What Vinnie is looking for:
Denim Jeans 25-60 credits
White T-Shirt 6-20 credits
Flannel Shirt 30-50 credits
Boots 140+ credits
Military Field Jacket 80-150 credits.
All can be found in the GMG pgs. 182-183

Vinnie's able to peruse the selection and walk away with one of each item (mostly second-hand, but in good shape), for a whopping three hundred and fifty credits. He stuffs the merchandise in his backpack after the sale is concluded.

Items added to sheet. Credits deducted.

Vinnie smiles as he tosses his new clothes in his bag. "Thanks Fenrick, always the best deal in town you are." Vinnie says cheerfully before making his way out of the building. Vinnie quickly throws his bag into the passenger seat of his car, before driving off to the Arms Bazzar.

Zzazz walks into the pawnshop. After taking a few moments to scope out the goods, Zzazz approaches the counter. ”Hello. I am looking for some music so I can learn to play it on my violin and a means to listen to it. Can you assist?” While the attendant answers, Zzazz looks for and retrieves his card.
He pauses for a moment ”And maybe some things to help toughen up my instrument for the wilderness.”

Zzazz finds the store surprisingly is open given the hour. Zzazz does clock a couple of unsavory characters leaning against the wall across the street. The red glow of a cigarette illuminating their eyes, all of which are following Zzazz. Once in the store Zzazz see's the owner behind MDC plate glass. "I got some sheet music. It will cost you though. Can you read? Oh well I have some audio tapes to the left of the counter. Bring me the ones you want." When Zzazz picks out the music he wants the owner chimes in, "I'll be a thousand for those tapes."

Zzazz looks through the pile of old sheet music. ”Hmmm… Lets see here.” He uses his claw tips to flick thru the pages in their box. ”What is this? “Master Of Tides” By: Lindsay Stirling. Looks fun. Next?” He continues digging thru the pile. ’Oh?? “Despacito” By: Fonsi.. Also fun. Last but not least “Thunderstruck” By: AC/DC. Nice.” As he finds each, he lets out a small whistle. He returns to the counter. He places the sheet music on the counter, then proceeds to pull out random stuff from his bag. (( 7000 cr. BM items)). He looks up at the attendant ”I have some on this *shows card* if you need more *motions to stuff on counter* Maybe we can trade?” Zzazz will just wait to see what fellow says. ’Oh and no tapes. Thanks, i can read music.” He tries to show a friendly smile.

The man grumbles for a moment, "Of course you can read. Well sure we can trade. This is a pawn shop after all." The man separates out some of the BM items until he has 5000 worth in BM items. "There that will cover you for the music sheets." He then goes back to watching a small TV screen behind his MDC glass.
