4. You have set up shop. You are surrounded on either side by other merchant shops and there are customers coming and going in every direction. You position your best products out front, hoping to catch the eye of an interested buyer.
8. It is a few hours past noon and you have not made a single sale. You are in the middle of debating whether to close up shop when you notice a curious figure approaching your stall. It is difficult to discern much about the person, but they do not seem interested in your wares. They seem interested in you. The figure introduces themself as Senex Serpens (The Creeping Curmudgeon), a keeper of one of the temples in town.
9. Just as you are placing your last product on your table, a customer wearing many multi-colored rings approaches your stall and you realize that this could be the sale of a lifetime. You spend the next several minutes discussing the material quality and craftsmanship of your wares with them, before you are finally able to secure your sale.
