Welcome to the Bait Shop, come right in! Missing the manticore? Well he got tetchy so we replaced him with Greg. Who is Greg? Well he is the red dragon behind me. Pay him no mind, as long as you don’t try to steal you should be fine.
Here in the Bait Shop we have many fine wares to tickle your brain meats! What? You thought we carried such drab materials as potions or swords? BAH! What we deal in…is inspiration! Need a story? Come in and see what catches your fancy! Need a plan to deal with those dastardly adventurers? We got barrels full of em.

Oh and no charge, at least for today. Consider these a fine sample of our wares. Welcome to the Bait Shop. I hope you can hook a good one with these!
