An older gentleman in a simple green cloak is ahead. His face heavily obscured by his hood. As you pass by, he begins speaking: "Adventurer, have you been looking for a place to pick up cheap magic items or adventuring gear? I ask because we've been looking for new customers at our shop and you seem to fit the bill. Stop by after dark; we are just outside town across that bridge and into the forest.” He points, but the heavy mist obscures your vision, and you see no bridge or forest. He watches you struggle to see, but undeterred, he continues: "It's there... Just turn left when the path splits and look for a simple wooden building with a sign that creaks in the wind—and in this part of the wood, it's always windy. Knock twice, wait, and then knock again. We'd be pleased to exchange items, if you've got the coin... or some secrets."
