I’d sell my Soul for…

Realising he’s back in Febril and justifiably nervous at the thought of trusting his life to those erratic Hamster men and their flying sky-boat again, Thesis seeks out Szandor the Magnificent.
Ignoring the hustlers in the Market place, Thesis pulls his cloak over his face and hurries to the wealthier part of the ‘free’ city.
Knocking on the impressive, iron-shod door, Thesis waits for a moment before it is opened by one of the stunning young woman he’d seen before.
She is close to six-foot tall with a mass of curly, flame red hair.
“How may I help you sir?”
On Thesis’ pleas for an audience with Szandor, she escorts him upstairs.
After a few minutes, Szandor enters the sumptuous room, but his face is far less ingratiating than the last time they met.
He is escorted by two more of his beautiful servants.
“Ah, the death seeking Lizard-man. What do owe the 'pleasure' of this intrusion?”
Slightly taken aback by Szandor’s change in attitude, Thesis asks for a potion of ‘Feather fall’ and a potion of ‘Flying’.
Szandor rolls his eyes as he tugs at his jet-black goatee. “Is that all you want? You bother me with these trifles!?”
Steadying his breath he continues. “Fine. What do you propose to trade for them? Remember I’m a dealer in the occult. What magical artefacts have you got that I would be interested in? Or are you offering something else”
Thesis is silent for a moment. Although he doesn’t understand Szandor’s change in behaviour, he starts to rummage through his pack…

For a potion of fly, Thesis is willing to exchange three lesser potions: Blur, Bulls Strength and Eagles Splendor.

He feels that may well be enough, but if Szandor had a ring of feather fall as well, he would be willing to exchange his Greatsword+1(Light) and a potion of cure moderate wounds to sweeten the deal.

He would also give a 500gp gem, for goodwill.

Szandor grinds his teeth for a moment before transforming them into a smile.
"I see you haven't the skill needed for negotiation so I shall be kind to you in this ONE instance.
I will accept the gem you offer in addition to any two of the potions you mentioned. I don't really care which two and in return I'll give you the potion of 'Flying' that you require."
With that he turns and leaves you with his partially dressed assistant to seal the deal.

Thesis gets a potion of 'Flying' in exchange for a gem worth 500gp and any 2 of the potions he offered.

Thesis thanks Szandor before he leaves and says he hopes that his business is good. He happily takes the potion and hands over the potions of blur and eagles splendor as well as the 500gp gem.

He carefully stows his new potion and makes sure all his pouches are well concealed before very carefully leaving the establishment.

It'd be a pretty brave thief to pick the pockets of a massively muscled, well armed, 6'6'" Lizard man!

Not brave, talented ;)

Oh Oh - I think I've guessed what Moritz's new character might be.

Naaah nothing of the sort, I am playing a brave, law-abiding, good, loving, nice, cute, fluffy, pearly, geeky, sweet, chewy, fitting, irreplaceable, and most of all honest character! Promise!
