Two things come to mind. The first is that I like this 30, it has a good mixture of humor, makes for an interesting cros-section of merchantage, and my favorites are the superstitious magic-seller, the potion maker who cuts people off, and the paranoid cobbler.

The second thing is THANK YOU! I had 30 Merchants penciled down on my to write list. Marked off now. Go to Comment

Such detail! I'd say the most detailed 30 yet. Even better, it's not bogged down by the details, but bolstered by them. Well done! Go to Comment

one of the better 30s I have ever read, reminds me of that quote:
"the more personal, the more universal"

this is very personal for a 30, we get a line of dialog and physical description, this superior to just a list of archetypes. Go to Comment

Glad you liked them! I was a bit surprised when I looked that it had not been done already, so with a LOT of help by Wulf, here we are! Go to Comment

Apparently this is at least the third time that I've read this sub and enjoyed it immensely but I've never voted on it so correcting this now. Go to Comment

31.) Old Man Humbert, Scroll Dealer and Professional Enchanter
"Welcome, welcome children. How can old Humbert help you today? . . . Protection against fire-breathers, eh? That reminds me of the time young Faravold fought that dragon up the coast a bit, nasty business. Now where were we . . . ? Fire-breathing, yes, yes! Let me just go get a few extra things from the back . . . (many minutes later). Oh! Didn't know I had visitors today. . . . Who were you again?"

A retired wizard of some reknown, Old Humbert manages a small enchanting business that provides for his few needs and little more. He is extremely absentminded and has horrible short-term memory, a combination which ensures that his business will never be very profitable. Humbert will often miscast orders ("fire-breathing" instead of "protection from fire-breathing"), double-enchant something if he forgets that he has already done it, and even add in extra things that the customer hasn't asked (or payed) for. On some days, he is fortunate to be helped by his adolescent granddaughter, Elsie, who is fiercely protective of the old man. Any extra coin he does manage to scrape together usually goes into buying small gifts for her. Go to Comment

What can I say that hasn't already been said? The dialog, combined with a short sketch of each business and personality paints a really clear picture for any GM to follow. This is definitely going into the binder! Go to Comment
