So, even though we don’t have gp from last session yet, I was was wanting to be sociable about town AND do some shopping, so when convenient, Xan will check out the general store and apothecary and see what magic items are for sale this month. I’d also like to learn more about these two NPCs.
Lelu has already briefed Xan on the personalities of each shopkeep; I’ll gladly listen to Cornelius’s stories and answer any questions he might have. Specifically, I’d like to know if he makes anything custom order, if he makes alchemical items like our tanglefoot bags and thunderstones, if he makes potions, etc.
I’ll be polite and respectful as possible to Antonina, as per Xan’s chivalric code, but I’m exceedingly curious as to why she seems to have it out for men. If you want to do this at the table Dampiel, that’s fine. Xan now has a +5 Diplomacy and a +5 Sense Motive. Preferably, if I can go with Catnis or Lelu that would probably be smart. I’d like to try and talk to her and get a little background, see if there’s anything we can do to gain her trust or at least avoid her disdain. Might also be worth checking out if she crafts anything herself or only sells what she buys off caravans… but that’s only if we can get her to open up and talk to us a bit more.
