Apothecaries serve a vital function in towns, providing a place to purchase a wide variety of items from pipe weed to common healing herbs and far more exotic and potentially potent items if the buyer’s pouch is heavy enough. Some shops even cater to darker requests, providing an assortment of poisons if the buyer is known to the maker of such illicit substances. There are many places within the shop, each location holding items of interest to someone. Such spots include the shelves, behind the locked door, and within the small basement vault. The only requirements the apothecary has is payment in full and discretion about whatever you might have purchased.
