According to local legend some travelers encounter just one minor problem with buying needed goods from this otherwise superior establishment. A wizard is said to haunt the place, or rather, as he is not dead, to lurk among its neatly arranged wares. This mage, one Thendarion of Tsurlagol by name, lost a spell duel some many years ago and was imprisoned in the shape of a boot. Like a peltast, he can now take the shape of any nonliving object of roughly the same volume. Thendarion is also capable of casting some of the spells he had committed to memory before his fateful duel though the legend also states that his spells tend to go horribly wrong nearly as often as they go right. The store's original owner, Elgath, attempted for much of his life to remove either the presence of the wizard or his curse from the store, but to no avail. His grandson may have succeeded where his forebears failed as Thendarion hasn't been seen for some two decades.
