Berymar’s Bazaar

Situated off the main market square, beyond the gypsy peddlers and the halfling fire ale merchants drunk on their own wares, is a dirty, decrepit stall, one side always looking like it’s about to collapse. In front of it sit’s a old, battered and scarred dwarf, with a shock of bright red hair. Getting closer to the stall, you can see that it’s almost empty except for a few grubby items. The angry faced dwarf sits upon a barrel and seems to be chewing out the young child who is stood before him.

“Hey… Youngster… Do you want to earn yourself a shiny bronze piece… There, I knew you’d be interested…

Here, have that coin, I’ve got plenty, and there’s a few more for you if you can run me an errand. I’m after a few things, you know, a few everyday materials that a young lad like you can find while on his way through life. What do you say, 2 gold pieces for you to go buy yourself a fine sword, and a silver piece for each item on my list?


First up, I need some amber. What is it? Don’t tell me I gave a shiny coin to an imbecile. Amber is the sticky sap of a tree. I need some powdered amber, from the greenvise plant. I hear there’s quite an infestation of the plant on the Gardmore Downs…

Then I need some spiced oil. Not cooking oil you fool, spiced oil, made from the pressed berries of the Fagara bush. Yes, the fagara, the same bush that grows in the swamps of T’u Lung where the bullywugs live. Don’t tell me a lad like you is scared of a few frogs?

Lastly I need some asafoetida roots. Its a fucking plant, that’s what it fucking is. A fucking stinking plant, that I need about a ton of, but i’m sure you can ‘acquire’ a cart to bring it on. They better not be bruised, I don’t want to loose any of their precious milky juice.

Bring them back to me as soon as you can, I need to fulfil an order for Sandburg… If you are lucky, i’ll give you one of what they have ordered… If you’re unlucky, i’ll test it out on you instead…”

As the child runs off, the dwarf notices you, wipes his hands on his vest, pulls out a complex looking smoking pipe and points it at you… ‘The names Berymar Dragonbane, and i’ll be stocking whatever you need, whether or not you need it.’

    Very cool items. Wondering of the potion of freedom should give +2 on saves vs being immobilised too?

    What does Berymar pull out of his vest? A smoking pipe or is there a word missing?

    Richard. Its a Smoking Pipe, not a smoking pipe. geeze..
    Any way like the dwarf, not the use of the swear word. not very reader friendly.
    “wolves blood boy. listen to what i’m saying”

    I had a Latin teacher who used to put his still-smoking pipe in his top pocket and thereby scorch his jacket. Those were the days….
