Penelope offered Crow a small smile and nodded her head in agreement. She hoped her words had alleviated some of his dissatisfaction. At the moment, there wasn't much she could do other than remind him that there would likely be an end point to how many people had such a say in his life. Luckily he didn't seem to focus on it much longer as his focus turned onto the the merchant's stand, eying over the various goods. She turned her attention onto them as well, eying them over with a little bit less intrigue.
Since she had grown up in the inner kingdom, such things weren't overly rare. Of course, they were well crafted and unlike anything a craftsman would be able to make in Brerra but that also made them more expensive here. She glanced over at Crow as he addressed the man in what she guessed to be the merchant's native tongue. Sometimes she forgot just how many languages the viceroy knew even without the training. The knight remained to the side as she listened to the two speak, raising an eyebrow curiously as Crow glanced at her.
As he turned to leave, the knight moved to follow him, catching the eye roll as she did. Penelope gave an amused look as he wrinkled his nose. "Not everything. Once we start looking at merchant stands that aren't from other kingdoms, the prices tend to be a bit lower... However, it'll probably still be quite pricey. Most jewelry doesn't sell for less than twenty gold pieces around here. And don't get me started on clothing." she mused, shaking her head. "There are some cheaper options of course but I would say on the high side you've looking at anywhere between two hundred to five hundred gold pieces."
Penelope wrinkled her own nose a bit as she admitted to it. Focusing her gaze ahead, she let out a sigh. "And of course, that won't hurt most noble's wallet, aside from perhaps having to save up their coins to recover if they aren't of a higher status. I'm planning to buy something near two hundred today but it's not going to clean out my coin purse." She shrugged her shoulders and began to make her way over to one of the stands that was selling clothing nearby. "That's why I think I'll be able to convince some nobles to help with the outer villages.. Even if it's just hand full, we could certainly make some type of difference."
