The Treachery of Thronehold
Mess doesn’t begin to describe the state of Pascaline’s lab. Everywhere you look, piles of books, tools, weapons, and pieces of machinery litter the floor, leaving just enough room for a gnome or halfling to get around without knocking everything over.
“Stop! Don’t move any closer! Some of those items are very volatile, you know. They might just blow up in your face if you were to knock them down, and I couldn’t tell you what’s dangerous and what isn’t without taking a look myself. If there is any specific magical or alchemical item you want, however, odds are I already know how to make it. Just bring me the necessary materials and I’ll have it done in no time. Better yet, write it down on the Request List so I’ll have everything ready by the time you need it."
