Virgin Flame arrives in Baltimare and makes her aqua intense with the staff of a Cathedral there. Spark goes back to Blackwood, helping a rebel and several wolves. Iron takes a train off to the mountains where there is said to be treasure. Silver is pleasantly surprised to wake up to the world-not-ending. Dark Star goes home for the night, disturbed by the forces corrupting the youth, and left to contemplate his role in stopping it.

The hash browns include an extra, unasked-for toasting, and the pancakes are just a little dryer than desired. Exactly how so much grease got on the food remains a mystery.

Not nearly as good as Ma's cooking. But at least I'll have energy for the day. When she finishes she goes to the counter to pay for the food.

Rob it!

Amber looks for some much-needed essentials. Namely:
Soap
Shower curtain
Shower rod
A couple of cheap towels, both for bath and kitchen
A washboard and bucket
Clothesline and pins
Clothes hangers (she must have a closet of sorts, right?)
Toilet paper
Plunger
Broom and dustpan
Cleaning sponges
A few pots, pans and bowls
Waste basket or trash bin and trash bags

She considers getting a blanket and pillow, but not only would that be bulky but she guesses a furniture store would be a better place to get these things. An alarm clock catches her eye though and she considers getting one.

These are... not necessarily available in a general store. But anything is possible, if only she looks hard and far enough. Department stores several stories tall exist just a little closer to the city center.

48 more bits.

48 for items which she can find in the store or 48 for everything spread out over several stores?

She remembers she needs some basic hoof care things, like sturdy clippers, a file and a brush. What else could she need....

Reasonable enough. She gives the storeowner the bills, thanks him for the change, and takes several minutes to wrap up the paraphernalia in her cloak. She carries the makeshift bag on her back all the way home.

Although she's thankful this is a weekend and could sleep in, if for whatever reason she stays up late again it could be a problem. So yes, she got one.

Oof. "Err...the clock is a little pricy. I figure I need one because I don't want to wake up late and lose my job, but I just got paid for the first time and I'm worried I won't be able to cover living essentials. I don't suppose the price could be lowered by just a little bit?" Amber asks meekly.

"Well..." The mare looks away, and her ears lower

"I can't really change the price of the items. It's store policy."

Though her head turns away, her eyes return to Amber
"But there is another clock that's kind of similar... and while the sale ended, it's still marked as the lower price..."

It doesn't look as pretty, being a grey steel color, versus the golden brass color of the other.

Amber is quite satisfied with the transaction, knowing her quality of life is much better for it. She won't organize the things just yet but unwraps them and dons her cloak. Does anything happen or can she go out again?

She thinks nothing of it; carrying a makeshift pouch like that is bound to get a few glances. After laying out her things on her floor, putting her cloak back on and locking the door behind her, she sets back out again. Direction: a furniture store.

Is this the right place? she starts to wonder to herself. Still, it's probably better than being too fancy, because she's interested only in some plain-looking, albeit sturdy, furniture anyway.

She takes mental note of that and walks over to the bedroom section. A nightstand isn't needed, but how much does a single bed go for?

At the very lowest end, about 40 bits, about half of which comes from the mattress.
