Thrice The Brinded Cat
Skie Aldersun is a gnomish retired adventurer who settled into the Cauldron region some time ago. She is the only store owner in the city whose sole market is the acquisition and sales of magical items.
Her shop is a modest building crafted from blocks of volcanic stone. The facade of the building bears dozens, if not hundreds, of symbols and sigils that have been carved into the face of the stone with chisels. One door and a pair of tiny windows face the road and overlook the lake below. Above the door, a sign proclaims the establishment to be Skie’s Treasury, but more impressive are the numerous items of treasure – rings, coins, wands, necklaces, rods, potions, scrolls and more- that seem to slowly orbit the sign and shine with a soft golden light. Every now and then, two of the items bump against each other, ringing softly like a wind chime.
Inside, Skie’s shop is packed with shelves, cases, cabinets and display stands – all sporting various items of interest to adventurers, and, according to Skie, all of them are magical.
The Moonhowlers have had a few visits with Skie since their adventuring career began. On the first visit, Skie told them about her Adventurer’s Discount. In order to be eligible for the discount, Skie said that they must:
Have a Party Name – (check! The Moonhowlers) Visit the shop at least once a week (check! two times so far) Recite to her a tale of valor and adventure each week (check! The Sacking of Jzadirune) Sell at least 5000 gold worth of magical items to Skie (2500 so far – halfway there!)
On their second visit to Skie, the Moonhowlers tried to get some diseased items infected with the Vanishing identified. Skie was struck by the disease and was not pleased with the party for bringing the malady to her. The Moonhowlers may be hard pressed to gain her favor in the future.
