When the bazaar resumed after the fall of the city, there was a reasonable level of bustle and a fair amount of goods exchanging hands….
Notes under the cut:
Ah, the second of our three beauties. 😛
Just two things to note (it’s a short section):
1. mithqal: an actual unit of measure IRL, but in Arslan-verse corresponds to bronze/copper coins (i.e. the least valuable denomination)
2. sher: You might remember the “Lion Hunter” title mentioned all the way back in the first chapter, “Shergir”. Sher = lion. This line is basically referencing the Chinese/Japanese proverb “If you don’t enter the tiger’s cave, you won’t capture its cub.” Except with lions.
Next section introduces another fun character! And just as a heads up, you maaaay be getting that update sooner than usual. Iiiiif I can get my buffer ahead enough I’d like to schedule posts twice a week until the first book ends! … But only if I can get comfortably far ahead. 😀
