Cendadric's Collectibles is the only pawnshop in the town of Mist Harbor. It is a tidy brownstone dwelling framed by colorful banners. Located on the outskirts of the town bazaar, it stands at the intersection of Gardenia Lane and Rose Avenue, just east of the bank. This pawnshop buys and sells merchandise. It is run by Cendadric.

Main Room

[Cendadric's Collectibles] RNUM: 12306
A large, fancy rosewood desk sits in the middle of this room, a cushioned velvet-covered chair placed precisely behind it. On the wall behind the desk is a large portrait of an elven woman, the colors bright despite its evident age. A large silver chandelier hangs overhead, its myriad of candles snuffed for the day, while a carved rosewood arch leads farther into the shop. You also see Cendadric, an old barrel and a glass-centered door.

Details

>look at portrait
This portrait features a beautiful elven woman with titian hair and fair skin.  Her jade green eyes gaze outwards from the painting with a hint of humor, her mouth turning up at the corners with the slightest hint of a smile.  She is dressed in leaf green gown of a style long retired, and in her hands she holds a pale pink rose in full bloom.  A small gold plaque has been attached to the frame at the bottom.
There appears to be something written on it.

>read portrait
In the Common language, it reads:
An elven woman, name unknown.  Painted in the year 4407 by an unknown artist.

>look at barrel
You see nothing unusual.

>look in barrel
The old barrel is filled with a variety of garbage.  You see nothing useful or appetizing.

>look at Cendadric
For such a large man, there is a curious softness about Cendadric's manner.  Clothes of the finest damask silks have been expertly tailored to mask his over-ample frame.  On his thick fingers glitter many bright rings, each a tribute to the gemsmith's craft, and a jeweler's loupe hangs from a narrow-linked gold chain on his waistcoat.  Cendadric's jowly face shows the unhealthy, mottled flush of one too fond of strong drink, but his clear eyes gleam with hard focus, taking in every detail about him.

Ambient Messaging

Cendadric greets an elegantly dressed elven gentleman.  After a few pleasantries, the elf produces a lovely cameo brooch.  Cendadric examines it carefully under his loupe, gives a small nod of satisfaction, and passes the gentleman a small purse.

Cendadric pores over several sheets of parchments covered in fine script.  His thick, beringed index finger stops at one entry, and Cendadric gives a muffled grunt, though whether of contempt or surprise, you cannot tell.

Cendadric strolls across the room to gaze at the large portrait.  His expression is inscrutable, a curious mingling of sharp-eyed appraisal and fond remembrance.

Cendadric takes a small key from his waistcoat pocket and opens a desk drawer.  He removes a thin sandalwood-bound book from within and passes his hands over it lovingly before carefully securing it back in the drawer.

Rising from his seat behind the rosewood desk, Cendadric carefully lifts a fragile ivory statuette from a nearby cabinet.  With an embroidered handkerchief extracted from his cuff, he whisks away a few specks of dust from the artifact and replaces it precisely among the other treasures on the shelf.

An elegant, flower-patterned rug covers most of the floor, reaching almost all the way to the ivory silk-covered walls. Hanging from the walls are exquisite antique paintings and weapons, and a bookshelf against one wall displays a collection of well-worn books. Rosewood tables lined up in the center of the room display various weapons, armors, arcane items, and other goods. You also see a carved rosewood arch.
