A hideous little orc is in the kingdom’s capital
A hideous little orc is in the kingdom’s capital, looking to acquire medicine for his sick mom.
Nobody can stand the sight of him, with some even threatening violence of he doesn’t leave.
He finds and alchemist’s medicine shop at the market and tells him about his mother’s illness.
“Ah, but of course!” says the alchemist, “It’s clearly a case of Sakiara Fever. It’s not very common at all, but I’ve got just the thing.”

His smile quickly goes away when he realizes he’s 100 Crowns short.
He looks at the alchemist, to which the alchemist says “Sorry, youngster.
It’s as low as it goes. I can’t operate at a loss.”

It was a large man clad in shining armor, and an ornate helmet that was too beautiful for words.
The knight pulls out a nugget of ore from his pocket, probably worth around 150 Crowns, and hands it to the ugly orc, saying “Take it, you need it more than I do”.
In the shock of the moment, the orc couldn’t think what to say to the generous man…
