Session 57 - This Expedition Cost Us an Arm and a Leg (and a wizard and an elf)

And that's a second one-legged Dwarf in the campaign! Who knew battlefield amputations were so easy with a flame sword?
In general a prosthetic leg will count as an Oversized item all on it's own, which means it slows you down a bit but you can mitigate it by carrying less stuff.
Until you get one though, you'll have to hobble around or crawl or something, which isn't particularly speedy!

For businesspeople - I'll start telling you how much your business lost/gained in these emails so you can decide what to do with the profits. I've been assuming that you've been reinvesting it into the business, but maybe you want to take some out occasionally! 
You can take out as much as you want at the time of the monthly return.
Here's a breakdown:

Peggy Pigrider - Pie Mama's. Safe investment. Lost 63sp value by end of month. New value is 1213sp. 
Some weird stuff is going on back in Pillartown, giving penalties.

John Doe the Unlucky - Anvil, Mining & Craft, Inc. Risky investment. Gained 16sp value by end of month - new value is 1579sp. 
Blood-powered mining machine and blood supply giving bonuses. Small penalty for commandeering company assets (donkey and cart). Supply of pig blood to mountains makes people suspicious, especially since there's a huge graveyard and an alleged Necromancer up there.

Lulu Spiderbite - Clunge Honey. Safe investment. Gained 190sp value by end of month - new value is 1190sp.
Bonus for word of mouth marketing (and free samples) which will continue if you keep advertising!

Joe Joe - Josephine's Petting Zoo. Risky investment. Newly incorporated. Initial investment: 1500sp.
Bonus for Halfling mind control. Bringing new and exciting animals to petting zoo is sure to give further bonuses.

Stabbington Shanks - Tomb Busters. Risky investment. Newly incorporated. Initial investment: 600sp.
Possible bonus for making a name for yourselves. If you want the headquarters to be in Fortress City Fate you'll have to head over there at some point!

I've added a new "Active Businesses" category in the recap too.
