Making Gold in New Haven
s usual, people were littering the ground around the New Haven Bank with their waste. Old worn armor, shabby clothes, old boots, tools, and the obligatory collection of vendor advertising runes could be found everywhere, disfiguring the beautiful townscape. On that day, the pirate Pete Ninefinger found himself once again cash-strapped and thirsty. Since New Haven was usually frequented by a lot of unexperienced landlubbers, he decided to take advantage of that and invent new ways of making gold without having to sweat for it. Thus he started to charge people for all kinds of minor delicts, like littering the ground, careless handling of pets, casting spells and riding big mounts.
While most passersby simply ignored him, every now and then someone actually paid him a couple of gold coins. Whether it was out of pity or fear, Pete did neither know nor care about. This money would pay him the ale he needed, and that was all that mattered. Even a member of the Royal Britannian Guard did not stop the pirate's ripoff. Pete Ninefinger was able to continue his business without any interference until he had gathered enough to spend the rest of the day in a tavern.
