This would fit well in one of their old school "tour guide" sourcebooks that Fasa used to kick out the door every few months back in the day.
Simple, colorful, and amusing with enough plausability to introduce into the game as an unlikely meeting point between Johnson and runners.
You kids these days and your need for logic...
The restaurant has a fancy name but that doesn't mean they serve any of those fancy French dishes. Besides, I'm sure the cooks preferred to tell Harold they weren't up to the task rather than tell him the truth about the name (they've all tried it, of course, and they're all big fans, but the ingredients are too exotic, the preparation is too much, etc.) Still, he wanted it to have a fancy name and everyone was too skittish to tell him otherwise. Of course it doesn't make sense to everyone else. But it does make sense to Harold.Go to Comment
I agree with montreve. He is deliciously usable, and yet i am left with some questions. I find it kinda weird that he comes to a humble town and sells this stuff for moderate coin. It seems that after some time, this town would become famous, and people would flock to either buy these amazing crystalline items, or as monreve says, steal them. Also, it would be interesting to know, what happened when the inevitable group of bad-asses stormed his mansion. Obviously there is more to know about Wipp and his strange crystals and his paste, and yeah, whats his race? :)

But its good. He has that certain je-ne-sais qoui quality to him, that I like. I think maybe slightly too much is left to the imagination however in this case.
I think there would certainly be an adventure here in either trying to steal these goods or trying to prevent someone from stealing them.
This was a great story with a lot of depth and for me has a lot of room to grow, what is the crystal and can others learn to make it? What race is he? That sort of thing. Left me wanting more in a good way.
