So, the OGRE is wearing a shirt and pants, but the man is only wearing a jacket?

Talk to the beam counter.

You walk up to the man and introduce yourself. He looks you up and down, and says dismissively, 'You look like you need a job. I'll pay you 2 Gold Pieces to help Olaff load these shelves. It shouldn't take you more than two hours.'

If you want to accept the job offer
If you would rather go back to the market square to walk down Beggar's Alley

We'll handle Olaf's load for 2 gp.

I can't think of a suggestive way to vote for taking the job, but take it anyway.

The owner of the timber yard leaves after a few minutes, and you are left alone with Olaff the Ogre. You ask him some questions but he doesn't reply. You give up trying to talk to him, and carry on piling beams on to the shelves. The owner comes back an hour and a half later, by which time you have finished loading the shelves and are quite exhausted. Lose 1 STAMINA point. He walks up to you and says with a smirk on his face, 'Well done, you can go now.' You ask him for payment and he looks at you quizzically and says, 'Payment? What payment?' The Ogre sidles up alongside him, grinning, brandishing an oak club.

If you want to fight the Ogre
If you would rather go back to the market square to walk down Beggar's Alley

Ah, robbery. The uncomplicated justification for violent self-defense.

The ugly Ogre is a powerful and very vicious opponent. It is skilled at using a wooden club as a weapon, and swings it forcefully through the air.

OGRE SKILL 8 STAMINA 10

Combat Log:
Click here to see the hidden message (It might contain spoilers)

A search of the Ogre yields 5 Copper Pieces and an iron key that it was wearing around its neck on a piece of string. You pocket the coins and the key, and turn to the timber yard owner, who steps backwards, afraid that you might attack him. He apologizes profusely and begs you not to harm him, offering you 10 Copper Pieces and 3 Gold Pieces in payment for having treated you so badly. You snatch the coins from him and walk back down Armoury Lane to the market square and on to Beggar's Alley. Or, if you have not done so already, you may go back to the market square to go to Silver Street.

Yeah, Silver Street...and it seems we can only visit each street once. Thought so before, but wasn't sure.

Silver Street is a narrow cobbled street lined with small houses and shops, most of which are jeweller's and silversmith's. There are beautifully crafted silver teapots, urns, platters and condiment sets on display in the window of the silversmith's. The second shop has a sign above the shop window which says Jethro's Jewels. A white-haired old man wearing a white shirt and a black apron is placing gold jewellery and ornaments in the window. He looks up, smiles, and beckons you to enter his shop, hoping that you might be his first customer of the day. You pop your head through the door and see a tall Man-Orc standing near the jeweller, who is his hired guard.
If you want to enter the jeweller's shop
If you would rather keep on walking to the end of the street

Surprised we can't just murder the paymaster as well.

Since we're not allowed to just turn around and buy one of the one eyed monster's daggers, enter the jeweller's shop and feel like shit for being too poor to buy jewels.

A brass bell rings loudly as you push open the heavy door of the jeweller's shop. The Man-Orc glares at you suspiciously, his hand resting on the hilt of the sword on his belt. 'Don't be concerned by Crusha. He won't hurt you unless you do something stupid like try to rob me!' the old man says calmly. 'I see from your attire that you are not from these parts. Would you like to purchase something? Or perhaps you may have some treasure to sell to me?' You look at the glass cabinets as though interested in buying something, but there is nothing on display that you can afford.
If you have a gold rabbit charm that you would like to sell
If you would rather leave the jeweller's and walk to the end of the street

Silver Street ends at a T-junction where it joins a narrow cobbled street running north and south. It is lined with drab, narrow houses built of grey stone with small windows and high-pitched roofs. A horse-driven cart laden with rusty old iron, worn-out shoes and clothes, rotten wood and bits of old furniture rumbles down the street towards you. The pasty-faced driver is slouched in his seat in a threadbare coat and top hat looking bored, occasionally flicking his horse with a long whip to urge it on. 'Rag and bone!' he shouts out half-heartedly as he passes each house, hoping that somebody might toss something out for him to take away. But nobody opens their door. There doesn't appear to be much happening in Barrel Street. Will you:

Stop the rag-and-bone man to talk to him?
Walk back to the market square to go to Armoury Lane?
Walk back to the market square to go to Beggar's Alley?

(It seems we actually can go back to Armoury Lane. My ruling: if we do go back, we can't redo any of the stuff with the Ogre or his boss, but we can revisit the Cyclops.)

edit: typo fixed

The man eyes you suspiciously, wondering why you stopped him. 'I've got nothing worth robbing me for if that's what you're thinking,' he says in a tired voice. You reply that you are about to set off on a treasure hunt in Moonstone Hills and are just trying to collect some provisions before leaving Chalice. 'I wouldn't bother with Barrel Street, trust me,' he says with a knowing look. 'For a Copper Piece, I'll take you to the main gate if you are ready to go now?' Will you:

Pay for a ride to the main gates?
Walk back to the market square to go to Armoury Lane?
Walk back to the market square to go to Beggar's Alley?

Beggar's Alley for variety's sake.

Beggar's Alley is a narrow, potholed dirt track, hardly wide enough to drive a horse and cart down. Dark and decrepit stone and wood houses line the alley, all of them long in need of repair. There is rubbish everywhere, and the putrid stench of open sewers fills the air. Beggars in ragged clothing stand hunched in doorways, their arms outstretched like lost souls pleading.

If you have any Copper Pieces that you wish to give to the beggars
If you would rather walk on to the T-junction at the end of the alley

We have Copper Pieces, but do we want to give any to the beggars?

We have 15 Copper Pieces, surely we can spare one. Besides, being kind to beggars pays off most of the time.
