Vesiwith's Maps & Oddities

[Vesiwith's Maps & Oddities - 29436]
In the dim light provided by a pale blue orb that flickers in and out of existence in the center of the room, it is difficult to make out much of your surroundings. Unstable stacks of various boxes reach from floor to ceiling, threatening to fall upon those who dare to get too close. Dilapidated wooden shelves sit empty and line the walls, while a wobbly oak case and a rickety haon table sit nestled against an antiquated and dusty counter; a faded handwritten sign hangs crookedly between them.

Unsteady wooden tables are haphazardly arranged throughout this chamber, each topped with varying amounts of assorted scrolls, tomes, drawings, and burning candles. Many maps are hung along the cedar walls, each with detailed notes pinned around them. A cherrywood display case and a small oak table rest off by themselves flanking one of the corners, each with two brightly lit candles allowing ample light to study what is within and on them. You also see a polished cedar door.

On the small oak table you see: an ornate onyx and jade compass, a small antique bronze compass, a dagger embossed silver compass, a tarnished brass compass and a gold-edged polished copper compass.

Maps & Oddities, Atelier

[Maps & Oddities, Atelier - 29438]
Dissimilar to the rest of the shop, this area has been kept in great shape. Sturdy shelves line two of the walls from floor to ceiling in this quaint space, stuffed with tomes, maps, notes, and drawings. Several desks bearing various tinctures of colorful inks, assortments of parts, and half-finished maps are clustered together in the center of the room. A makeshift bed that is neatly made sits against a wall decorated in depictions of various creatures; a pair of slippers rest at its base.

Services provided include teaching you how to further use the items to their full potential (unlocking), and doing his best to make them look more suitable to the eye. Work will cost twenty thousand silvers; he doesn't work for free!
