The minion Bazaar
Welcome back, I do wish that your holidays were good. Due to limits of time, we are having a brief side adventure with our dear Senna and Nessa. As a side adventure, this will take place between mainline adventures, so do not stress about your suggestions. We remember them, and they will come up in our next post.
In a lonely room partway up the tower, Senna and Nessa finally find a spare moment to meet, a chance to breathe and touch base.
Good evening Nessa, how is our minion count looking?
Much recovered, you are working with our science team, right?
That was this morning
I just came from our minion market. Do you have a moment to come to check it out?
Ah it’s time for a filler episode, is it?
It’s more like a bald-faced exposition.
That my dear readers, leads us to follow the two down to what has become of our minion market. Through the enchanted doorways for Esher’s signature style, space warps and we arrive at another floor all together.
In one of our newly filled tower slots, we find the brightly lit and perfect temperature of the Market floor. With the telltale purple color of our branded lust magics, the sounds of hustle echoing in the air. Shops selling tools, sex toys and even training services for followers. Coins changed hands, and commerce took place.
This is certainly impressive, but where is the capital coming from? I know we can’t afford to be giving minions gold.
The unfortunate financial state of our enterprise is well known to me, that’s why I had our smiths forge something instead.
The telling sounds of coins tumbling from hand to hand rings out as Senna hands a set of small purple coins to Nessa.
This is the coin we are using. The minions have taken to calling it Fuch…
With the surplus of lust energy we have, and likely will continue to have indefinitely, these coins make the most sense for our economy.
At least we can recompense our minions.
Do we have something for them to buy with their fuch?
We already have a system for war spoils and followers to be sold off.
Come with me.
Our two administrators travel into a large building, where mushies with clipboards and higher education go through the spoils we have won upon the battlefield. Measured with primitive tools, they evaluate the quality of each follower or item we have won.
After some triage and sorting, followers that lack any unique qualities pass through these facilities.
Those that arrive at our markets need to be measured and sorted into tiers.
Certainly a robust system. How are they sorted?
The primary measurement is Lust generation, with further measurements of asset size, general ability, and kink affinities.
We bucket them into letter grades from this data.
To help further define grades, we’ve started using upgraded collars to impart more niche skills. Something to spice up the bedroom, or even useful skills for other fields.
important for the one who looks for the certain specific purpose for the follower is presume
The market will have some built-in stability from this at least.
From here they go to the markets, which is this way.
A wide-open pavilion with benches for followers is placed right next to the evaluation building. Price tags attached to butt plugs take place in each follower’s ass, as they are tied up in revealing positions. Auctioneer Mushies, with eyeglass and mustache talk to other minions, doing their best sales pitches for the sweet sweet commission payout.
We have a marginal tax on the sale of Followers. Right now we want to make sure they are sold quickly so that the lust generation doesn’t start to lag.
In the future, we can increase the tax rate once we have more followers in circulation.
Makes sense, even a marginal tax rate will allow us to slowly deplete the amount of fuch in circulation.
Where does the actual profits for the sale go? Followers are lining up to join at this point so expenses should be low.
Our minion staff take about twenty percent of the sale value as payment.
Lower than what they would make on the front lines, but still enough to have minions take these roles.
The rest goes into paying for minions to build expansions of the market and other services. Only about five percent of the fuch is kept by the tower.
Trying to stimulate the economy while everyone has had very few battles to actual make up the bulk of the income.
I would prefer to move more of the payout to actual combat roles. but I see your logic.
Any economy needs a civilian sector. Not just so the less brave can still contribute, but to provide our troops with services to spend their pay on.
You don’t need to convince me
I just worry with our low minion variety, we still use unupgraded mushminions for many roles.
If we had a more dedicated and varied military core, then we could afford to split the unspecialized minions into non-combat roles.
Maybe another species of minion aside from our mushies.
Well it’s a good thing we have the viewers with us on this filler episode, huh?
Well, they likely will still vote for more lewd options, but at least they can hear our concerns.
Quite, now let’s go see the actual auction, shall we?
On a reinforced stage, one of the Auctionshrooms speaks out to a gathered horde of mushminions. In that mushie language of theirs, they extol the virtues of the gathered followers for sale. Mushies raise their hand to place bids in fuchs. Even on the relatively low quality mouse followers, prices quickly rise to the high hundreds and even low thousands for a single minion.
For context, the last battle paid out anywhere from eight hundred fuchs for reserve roles to two thousand fuchs for those who fought in the melee. Considering that, most mushies here are spending most of their fuchs immediately, and will still have only one follower to their name.
As you can see, competition is raising the prices very quickly.
I would expect that as minions get their first follower, and start to open up more services, the price for D grade followers will drop in the next week.
You are underestimating our throughput.
While we have scores of followers, our market is still in the middle of expanding to serve the raw volume of minions and followers we have.
Perhaps, but the chase for those rare S grade followers will incentivize them to take our construction jobs and the work should be quickly resolved.
It is just a matter of time, yes.
Thankfully the raw resources of our forest floors and the workforce of mushies won’t require any gold or strategic resources to finish this project.
That does free up my budget, but I think Elgor will soon take any spare gold.
Honestly, that man, giving us outrageous demands for his department.
At least he’s cute.
And so I pan out the camera before Nessa and Senna can have too much of an opinion best reserved for a main post.
Our precious tower now has commerce! I’m not sure how I feel about that, but it’s too late. I took a break from narrating last month, but it’s good to be back with y’all.
Just remember that your posts from last time are still in the works with our main protagonists, so don’t worry about trying to repost them all here.
Thank you guys for another year of lewd adventures, you are loved by all here at the tower. Do have a good new year, and try to come back for our next story post!
