Katia did you just read someone else’s mail?
Shame shame!

You weren’t reading someone else’s mail, you were reading someone else’s trash. It’s completely different, and much more acceptable.

But yeah, this is no time to stand around pondering the morality of garbage-tampering. You’ve got work to do.

Katia: You have some options. Try to convert your quick assets to cash first and then consider the odd jobs around town if the sales don’t go well.

First things first, it’s time to head to the trader and sell off all this stuff you don’t need. You know, get a little starter cash, hopefully enough to cover the first day or so.

After that… you guess you’ve got some options. One thing you definitely want to do before tonight is get a magic recharge from the healers at the chapel – you know, in case the wizardfolk at the Mages Guild ask you to demonstrate your abilities.

But really, your first priority here should be saving up some cold, hard cash. There were a couple people who seemed like they might be willing to pay. That one guy needed a sign? You could do that, you guess? That’s like a good ten septims probably. Woo, nearly one twentieth your stay covered right there.

>Katia: consider entering dancing tournament
for money
which you, you know, need

Heh. Yeah. You know you need the money, but you really really really really really really really don’t want to enter that dance tournament.

I mean, your old life of drunken one-night stands and sleazy poledancing is something you want to leave behind. Now that you’re far away from home, you want to be someone people can look up to. You want to be someone you can look up to. The very thought of getting up on a stage and showing everyone in Kvatch what a trashy slut you are… it just sort of puts a knot in your stomach. The people in this town probably almost kind of respect you right now and you want to hang onto that. Because it feels really good.

So yeah, dance competition isn’t going to happen. Not unless you can miraculously come up with some act that doesn’t make you look like a cheap whore. The orc said it’d be a few days before the next competition, so you guess you’ll have time to think about it.

Once that’s done, find the grape-jelly lady and take her up on her offer. You really need the money if you plan to even stay the night in the city. Plus its just some jelly, and she’s doing it behind a tree where no one can see, what’s the harm?

Katia: Get some money from that creepy lady. She’s clearly not a vampire, just a neck-romancer.

This, on the other hand, sounds like a perfect idea! Sure, her request seemed a little weird and fetishistic at first, but in retrospect there’s really nothing sexual about licking grape jelly off someone’s neck. It just happens to be a thing she likes, the same way you like magic or Quill-Weave likes chocolate! You are quite sure this lady is a perfectly normal human woman with no ulterior motives whatsoever. You know, no ulterior motives other than the small fact

THAT SHE IS A FUCKING VAMPIRE WHO WANTS TO SUCK YOUR BLOOD.

You’d rather not sell your precious lifeblood to the undead monstrosity. If something bad happens, maybe you get hurt or something, you’re going to need this blood. For bleeding. And you’re not sure how fast people grow new blood.

Anyway, you’re quite certain you can come up with much better ways to earn money.

Right, right, no sense in getting frustrated about bad ideas you haven’t even executed yet. Right now it’s time to make some quick cash. A heavier wallet makes everything better. Or so you’ve heard.

You regather your confidence, push the dumb ideas out of your head, and stroll into the Kvatch general store. Tavia welcomes you back and, like before, invites you to look around. She explains that a couple brand new spell scrolls were dropped off since your last visit, if that’s something you’re interested in.

    I’m surprised that she still had faith in her subconsious to begin with… then again it WAS because of it that she became a wizard. I know I’m a new new though, I’ve been reading this for a while. It’s just only now that I stopped being lazy and actually commented! ^.^

          NOOO! All may feel free to clutter this reply chain with pointless nonsense whilest waiting for Kaz’s next (surprisingly on-schedule) update.

          • 21stCenturyBird

            Well, now you jinxed it.

          • Loland

            Damn you.

  • Halbean

    Having a sufficient amount of blood for the sole purpose of bleeding should be one of her highest priorities! Plus vampires are just downright creepy. Oh hey, those new scrolls sound rather interesting~

    • Wind

      No they’re not. Plus, you get all sorts of new powers and strengths. Definitely an option, though knowing Katia’s luck, she’ll get caught fumbling over someone while trying to drink their blood (assuming that she can bring herself to the thought of it).

      • noone

        Doesn’t vampirism cause everyone to attack you when it’s developed enough?

        • Riobe

          If it progresses far enough, yes. But if you drink blood once a day you’ll never get past the first stage and you’ll just look a bit ill or under the weather to most people. Go 3 or 4 days dry though, and you’ll be sunken and hollow looking as well as quite pale and a bit more wrinkly. At least that was Oblivion. At that point making friends is a bit harder.

          • Halbean

            That’s definitely not an option for her then. Katia wants to make ALL THE FRIENDS!

        • patrick

          not always. it is just like Riobe said, but some clans can conceal themselves to the point where you can not see any difference at all. at least when they are fed enough.

  • Supes

    Those scrolls sure do sound tempting, but we mustn’t spend all our non-existent septims in one place. Priority: Grammar book. Even though spell scrolls might be cheaper, and we could definitely use that to go searching for some more expensive items to sell in order for us to buy that book faster…

    No! Just go up the nice shopkeep and ask if she would be kind enough to purchase any of your items.

  • Lucreel

    Katia: Do you still have any of those flowers and mushrooms you picked earlier? If you do, Tavia might buy them from you. Check to see if she’ll buy those. They might not make a lot of money for you, but even if she’ll give you one drake for each, if you have 10 or 20 plants, that might make you some coin. Even if you don’t have any with you, still ask, because that might be something you can go do while you’re waiting for the mages’ guild to open.

      Here ya go, this looks like the most recent inventory update.

  • http://laukineeuforija.puslapiai.lt Kulsius

    Sell your hand-made “machete” and your new ring, if it’s worth anything. If not, keep it just to look even more cute than you look now! And don’t forget: things are getting better!

  • http://laukineeuforija.puslapiai.lt Kulsius

    You have heard before, that alchemical ingredients have special effects. Why not find anyone, who knows if any of these, that you can easily find, replenish magicka?

  • Voye

    This character style > the other one. Fits her far better. Also, gratz on keeping the tuesday timeline.

  • Ravlash

    Katia: Well now, time to take inventory: keep everything that is a necessity, the rest you should really pawn off for that cold hard cash. Also, go ahead and ask the nice trader about those scrolls, maybe if you make some extra cash in the next few days you could buy one for Q.W as a present!

      Make sure it’s a scroll of immense good luck first. You don’t need any more bad luck Katia.

  • talyn

    Been reading for about a month, first post. Awesome comic!

    Katia: Look around the store, but only enough to notice the guy that looks like he could use some help.

  • Loland

    After getting the money and check out the mages guild you should ask the head mage if there is a way to see how much Magicka you have left!

  • harbinger

    You should definitely buy the magic scrolls after you have sold your loot. I mean, these are spells you can use to get into the mages’ guild, therefore free sleep, free food, free spells. In the long run, its an investment in your future, saving you money you would have spent on that expensive inn. Also, the dirty elf is charging too much for the book.

  • Henrik

    Imagine store-lady naked

  • Pyron

    If you think about it, the vampire’s under a tree at midday and Katia’s a fire-mage. She has the advantage from a 10 foot distance. All she’d have to do is throw a few balsy “I’ll set those leaves on fire” threats to extort that gold from her. Crime is perfectly legal against the undead, otherwise the hero would be arrested for barging into 120 dungeons and assaulting/murdering innocent cave dwellers.

  • Xaxzimineraz

    Sell your machete, use that money to learn a Bound Swords spell, entertain townspeople with pile of magic swords, get tips.
    Alternatively, eat some ingredients to learn what they do and make potions to sell.

  • Buttington

    Katia: You should notice that that robed person totes is a wizard of some sort. Also, sell all of your useless items you obtained on the journey to Kvatch.

  • Reaper

    Katia: After selling all unwanted “junk,” ask around all the shops if they need any help and if you can have a part time job.

    And if that doesn’t work, your a khajiit so your should be naturally stealthy, so just “wander” into an empty house and then you can sell the loot!

      That was the old version of the letter, the one Hirtel crumpled up and threw on the ground. Katia still has the one in the pink envelope. You’re not the first person to get confused though so I might make this clearer in the next page if I get a chance. Something inconspicuous like “you set the package and HIRTEL’S LETTER TO QUILL WEAVE down on the counter”.

    You aren’t gonna make money by trying to hawk random junk. And you aren’t gonna be convincing any one to hand over any money. So it’s theft or dancing. If you can dance lewdly, it means you’ve already overcome that fear of shame that’s critical. Go ask for training and ideas from that nice fellow and think of a dance you’d like to show people. You’ve got the imagination to come up with your own dance.

  • Salandras

    Be smart about your sales! Think things through and know what you’re getting into.

    1) Who are you selling to? Know your audience!

    -Can you sell the ball gag to the elf in the fighters guild? You can offer it at ‘discount’ for it being used!

    - Instead of your neck, offer the butter knife to the creepy undead vampire. Note that it’ll add an ‘interesting texture’ to her next meal!

    - Sell the flowers and mushrooms to an herbalist.

    2) How little are you willing to sell them for. Be firm! But don’t be greedy. You need to draw the line somewhere to make a profit, but you don’t want to ask for too much.

    3) Whatever you do ‘Resist the urge to sell everything you own in your inventory!’ You might accidentally agree to selling your robe. Even if it looks fancy and might give you the most money.

    Once you’ve gotten a profit, then you can try to afford the book. Anything left over should go to food, shelter, and possibly some turpentine and an old rag to get that ‘difficult to wash out’ paint out of your fur. And NO. Do not drink the turpentine. Resist. RESIST!

    • Lucreel

      “Whatever you do ‘Resist the urge to sell everything you own in your inventory!’ You might accidentally agree to selling your robe. Even if it looks fancy and might give you the most money.”

      A good rule is to sell anything you can’t use *right now*, or that is not as good as something else you have that you can use *right now* (redundant gear can be useful sometimes, but when you are broke, it’s better to take the chance your machete will break, and not keep a second machete in your inventory which you could have sold). Also, don’t sell items other people have given you as part of a job. It’s really that simple.

  • J’Ram-Ku

    I love this story.

  • Sanguine

    Yes, Yes, Give your blood to the not-vampire woman. It is indeed, Innocent fun. Do not doubt your subconscience.

    • Lucreel

      I don’t see what the big deal is. I give blood to other people pretty frequently (albeit, using needles, not teeth). So, vampires are just people with an illness that requires frequent blood transfusions. You can always have a priest cure you so you don’t get to full vampirism. Stop the discrimination against Vampires!

      • Sanguine

        True, mortal, but Vampirism spreads.. that vampirism-infected female mortal is obviously either attempting to kill her victim or spread said disease, as most vampires would do.

  • Greed

    I love this comic as much as the next guy, but the obstacles in Katia’s way, as of late, seem utterly contrived really.
    I mean, getting mugged – that happens, it’s believable, its good story-writing, waking up in some poor Argonian’s bed with some random guy wrecking it, not once, but twice – that’s comedy and tragedy woven into one – genius!

    But 40 Septims for a stupid book?
    when have you ever seen a book cost that much in the game (that wasn’t a MASSIVE gold-trimmed, leather-bound TOME full of rare knowledge)?
    never!
    even at “level 1″ mercantile (if you wish to use that excuse), prices aren’t bumped up by 400%.

    A much less contrived and plain silly story would have been to say someone else bought the last, and only copy – and katia has to go convince him/her to give it up.
    the obstacle desired is still there! it’s just less contrived than simply “IT COSTS A WHOLE SHITLOAD FOR NO REASON – DEAL WITH IT”
    That’s just pouring pure, unrefined problems into her lap, for the sake thereof.

    I know I’ll probably be hated on / ignored for saying all this, but hey, isn’t this what being a real fan is all about?

      Well, Hirtel said he was crap at appraising books so it’s not that hard to believe that he’d appraise it as a low level magic tome =P

      Besides, how fun would it have been if he’d just said 10 drakes and Katia would have bought it and been ready to pretty much leave town. Now she has a reason to stick around for a bit longer and I’m sure there’s a very horrible reason for that (or at least some shit is gonna hit some sort of a fan, hopefully the adoring one).

      I kind of have to agree on that the recent obstacles seem kind of bull.

I only wish I could retcon this!”

    Sell all except: Inventory case, clothing, hatchet, amulet, package/letter.

    The flatware set isn’t likely to get you anything.
    The yarn is probably worth about 2 septims, unless you stereotypically wish to hang onto that.
    The plants you picked up are probably good for another 5 or so.
    The ring has got to be worth about 20.

    That’s 27 right there. Just 8 more to go for that book!

    Okay, shoulders up. Appear confident. You’ve grown as a person and it’s time to act like it. Proudly say that you have some modest goods to trade. Don’t lie, don’t say you have more than you do. Just offer to trade some things and express interest in the new merchandise. Price things out before buying, you have all day to kill before going to the guild. May as well find out what room and board will cost before blowing it on scrolls you might not need. Learn what the scrolls are and ask about them at the Mages’ Guild later.

    Smile profusely.

  • J’Ram-Ku

    Katia, you’ve got to keep up the good work, so far you have yet to screw anything up scince you’ve gotten to Kvatch, let’s keep it that way.
    You really need to head to the chapel and get someone to cast a healing spell on you, anything would suffice, as you badly need to charge your magicka up.

  • Madcat

    Katia : You could offer to get rid of the nice merchant lady’s imp problem or clean up her shop for her. That’s classic quest material right there. You’re even resistant to magic. By the way, ever consider picking up some ice magic to put fires out?

    Sell anything not needed for completing quests, (like teeth, wolf pelts, other assorted items), but keep clothing, the magical amulet (for now – until you learn to have even better control of magic), weapon, and quest items (package then, I think?).

    Anything left over, get rid of it (do you still have the lockpick? Keep it! Never know when a lost chest in a ruin somewhere might need unlocking to get at the free goodies that clearly don’t belong to anyone)

    Next up, check prices on spell tomes, and anything that teaches you about alchemy and enchanting. Also sneaking, lockpicking, and maybe a little about using the one handed weapon. And/Or anything about restoration magic, because at this rate, you’re going to need it! Oh yeah, you might want to consider checking the prices on magicka potions (and recipies for said potions). And any other kinds of potions you can think of (like Invisibility postions, and health potions. And other utility potions).

    Learning to sneak will be handy for running away and hiding though.

    Find a dark elf who looks like he’s out of his element and has a weird mohawk. It’s preferable if he’s wearing armor made of bone and is trailing small bits of sand.

    The reason being you haven’t seen many dark elves (other than the dead guy who got crushed) and you’ve always heard they’re interested in lucrative business opportunities.

      ‘dark elf’

      You… YOU… N’WAH!

  • Iffkun

    Didn’t you find a paint brush? You could try your hand at art again

  • SkyrimImperial

    Found this last night. Best thing I’ve read in a long time. I am anxiously awaiting the next update

  • K

    Wait… isnt that the mage with the bloody dagger from the anvil in the background in the last pic?
    Read all of the prequel in one go, good stuff =)

  • kenshin1369

    greet her then trip falling forward landing on all fours x3

  • J.

    Kazerad, I just wanted you to know that I just found your comic via the Bethesda tweet and it has quickly soared to the top ranks of my webcomic list. You’re a fantastic writer (given good material on the forums to work with) and I have tears running down my face right now from laughing so hard. I can’t wait to see (build?) what comes next.

  • 0xFADE

    Neck-romancer has to be the best pun-type word in context ever. Ever.

  • tunesnatcher

    Waste all the (future) money on beer!

  • Nax

    For some reason, i checked Bethesda’s twitter monday for no reason at all… I don’t even use twitter… Thank the nine i did! This is one of the best webcomics i’ve ever read! I read the whole thing in about three days. Loved everything from the animations to the game.

    Anyway, thanks for making something awesome! I might even make a forum account…

  • AmesRed

    Now that we’ve got all these awesome new readers from Bethesda’s twitter, can you furfags please try your best to not freak them out?

    • Dousiq

      Make me

      I’m kidding, I’m not really into that sort of thing, and if I were you’d never know.

      • J’Ram-Ku

        Agreed, except that I won’t deny being into it, but I won’t approve it either. =P

    • Link

      Way to set the tone there with “furfags”… not the furries fault that you’re afraid of people who like things you don’t =P
      Better to be tolerant of others or simply to ignore them.

      That said, there are always people that take things too far. No need to provoke them though.

      • Dousiq

        This. Comments like that just beg for people to do something awful.

      • AmesRed

        I’m talking about the furfags who feel the need to make really fucking perverse creepy-ass comments.

        You people know what I mean, don’t play yourselves out as blind fools.

    • Sirus McMahon

      i think he has a very valid and well thought out proposal

      (furry, we can be retarded)

  • Wally

    Spin that leek like a damn dradle.

  • Christopher

    I NEED to donate money to this. This is the most entertaining thing I’ve come across in years. And the creativity and writing, combined with charming art are fantastic. But I searched for 20 minutes and couldn’t find the 1000 donate links most comics/online stuff have. SHUTUP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

    (Seriously where’s the donate links?)

    • Saint Dickolas

      I heahby secund this here motion. Where’s da’ feed’da’artist bin where we can throw our gum-wrappers and change?

    • NoriMori

      Lol.

  • BackupFruit

    Stride up to the counter with confidence, showing confidence is key!

  • Ali

    You are a Khajit. You’re practically in the same FAMILY as money. You can do this. Stay calm, Let your blood instincts take over.
    Note:NOT YOUR DRUNK INSTINCTS, KHAJIT TRADER BLOOD INSTINCTS.
    Good luck!

    I just spent the last 5 hours mostly reading through this (I was also repeatedly distracted, which makes sense for five hours), and I have to say that this is really really great. Better than MSPA in my book.

    I was sent here by /r/skyrim ( http://www.reddit.com/r/skyrim/comments/n50bd/prequel_or_how_to_make_a_cat_cry_created_all_in/ ) if you were curious.

      Whoa, hello formatting issues…

    • Dousiq

      Reddit…?
      Ugh.

  • TechUnadept

    Dance and sing on street corner for pennies. If they won’t pay you to do so, perhaps they’ll pay you to stop…

    I hope this webcomic closes. I hate you bitch.

    To the creator of this webcomic, You are a Cunt.

    Fuck you. I am better than you.

    • Greendragon

      Hey just because you think you are better doesn’t mean you are.
      Prove that you aren’t a fuck up. Post something unique and mind blowing.

  • Tormuse

    Another brilliant page. Things that made me smile: “properly dispose” sound effect, Katia reacting to the vampire, Katia’s dwindling faith in her subconscious. :)

    Also, typo alert:

    “this lady is a perfectly human normal woman with ulterior motives whatsoever.” should be “no ulterior motives”

    (er… that didn’t make me smile, but I wanted to mention it anyway) :P

    • Kazerad

      Ack, typo fixed! And thank you!

  • Cerulean Starlight

    >It’s just happens to be a thing she likes
    It just happens.

    • Kazerad

      Wow, how did no one notice that until now? Corrected!

  • creeperbro

    @5th panel mfw someone supports an utterly idiotic shipping…

  • Status

    “You are quite sure this lady is a perfectly human normal woman with no ulterior motives whatsoever.”
    Don’t you mean “perfectly normal human woman” ?

    • Kazerad

      Oh wow, how did that go unnoticed for so long? I guess the current way was technically correct, but still unintentional. Fixed, thanks!

  • Samuel McAfee

    Wow I think she should’ve became a vamp :p
