A wooden sign with whimsical, curling letters spells out "Kurpitsa's Pumpkin Shoppe" and swings gently in the breeze, announcing its presence with an inviting creak. The shop itself is a charming sight to behold, adorned with an array of vibrant pumpkins and gourds that spill from wooden crates and barrels, creating a kaleidoscope of autumn hues.   The air is filled with the earthy aroma of pumpkins, their scent mingling with the crispness of the pond's waters. A cobblestone path leads to the shop's entrance, winding its way through the enchanting pumpkin patch that surrounds it. The path is strewn with pumpkin lanterns, their flickering light casting a warm and inviting glow.
Entering Kurpitsa's Pumpkin Shoppe is like stepping into a cosy, rustic haven of all things pumpkin. Shelves and tables are adorned with an impressive assortment of pumpkin-themed products, each one lovingly crafted and imbued with a touch of magic. There are pumpkin-spice elixirs, enchanted pumpkin lanterns that dance with spectral flames, and intricate carvings of pumpkins that seem to come to life with a mischievous glint in their eyes.   Amidst the enchanting wares, Kurpitsa herself, the shop's proprietor, bustles about with a warm smile. Her apron is adorned with pumpkin motifs, and her nimble fingers expertly carve and enchant the seasonal treasures that fill her shop. She greets each customer with a friendly nod and is always eager to share the stories and traditions that surround the magical world of pumpkins.   Outside, a cosy seating area offers visitors the chance to savour pumpkin-infused treats and beverages while taking in the idyllic view of the pond. A faint quacking of ducks can be heard in the distance, adding to the shop's rustic charm.

Special Products

  Prices: In exchange for her unique creations, Kurpitsa doesn't seek monetary payment but instead requests deeds of service. The nature of these tasks varies, ranging from tending to a pumpkin patch to locating and retrieving rare items on her behalf.  

Pumpkin Sweets

Their healing effect is a simple yet wondrous ritual. As the recipient savors the sugary delight of a Pumpkin Sweet, a transformation begins. The wound, be it a gash, a scrape, or even an internal ailment, starts to knit itself back together. Pain subsides, and vitality returns. It is as if the magic of the pumpkin infuses the body, accelerating its natural healing processes.   Encased within intricate pouches designed to preserve their efficacy and protect them from moisture, these items retain their potency. Once you possess one of these pouches, you have the option to purchase refills separately without the need to acquire a new pouch. The pouch also serves as a suitable container for storing potions and herbs.  
WFRP 4e Eating one sweet takes 1d6 minutes and removes 1 wound. You can only eat 5 sweets per day without getting sick. You can try to eat more, but then you have to overcome a Difficult (-10) Endurance Test or suffer -20 on Weapon Skill, Strength, Toughness and Agility for 1d6 hours.

Jack-o'-Lantern Lantern

Jack o' Lantern Lantern by Tillerz using MidJourney
Its enchanting radiance casts an eerie, yet oddly soothing, glow that pierces the darkest of nights. But its magic extends beyond illumination; it serves as a guardian against malevolent spirits, standing as a steadfast sentinel that wards off the shadows and ensures the safety of those who dare venture into the night. This lantern, carved with intricate designs, is a cherished tool for those who navigate the treacherous realms of the supernatural.  
WFRP 4e The lantern bolsters defenses against beings bearing the Undead trait by providing a Ward (Rating 8) trait against Undead. When an undead entity approaches within a 10-yard radius of the lantern, it must make a d10 roll, striving to achieve a result of Rating or higher; otherwise, it will be forcibly repelled by the protective energies of the lantern. The undead entity cannot approach again. The owner of the lantern has to do the same d10 roll. On a result of Rating or higher, the Rating of the ward degrades by one.
 

Pumpkin Patch-Stepping Boots

In appearance, they feature orange leather with green vine-like motifs, and their soles are imprinted with tiny pumpkin patterns. Beyond their charming aesthetics, these boots are prized for their magical properties. When donned, they grant the wearer uncanny agility and grace, allowing them to traverse difficult terrain with ease. Whether navigating through muddy swamps or treacherous pumpkin patches, the Pumpkin Patch-Stepping Boots turn the most challenging landscapes into a whimsical stroll.
WFRP 4e   Quality: 7. These boots provide the same benefits as the Strider (marches) talent (p145). You ignore all movement penalties when crossing over or through marches. Afterward, roll a d10. If the result is equal to or greater than the current quality level, the quality decreases by one. When the quality reaches 0, the boots disintegrate completely.
