Located on the western end of Lava Avenue, Skie’s Treasury exists for one purpose alone, to buy and sell magic items to adventurers. Skie Aldersun, herself a retired adventurer, is the owner, and she loves to swap tales with folks browsing through her store. In Cauldron, if you are an adventurer, this is a shop you will want to frequent often.
Numerous stores in Cauldron sell magic items and gear, but only one of them makes its sole business buying and selling magic items to adventurers: Skie’s Treasury.
Skie’s Treasury is a modest building crafted from blocks of volcanic stone. The façade of the building bears dozens, if not hundreds, of symbols and sigils that have been carved into the face of the stone with chisels. One door and a pair of tiny windows face the road and overlook the lake below. Above the door, a sign proclaims the establishment to be Skie’s Treasury, but more impressive are the numerous items of treasure – rings, coins, wands, necklaces, rods, potions, scrolls and more – that seem to slowly orbit the sign and shine with soft golden light. Every now and then, two of the items bump against each other, ringing softly like a wind chime.
The runes on the façade of her store are in Gnome, and are in fact the names of various adventuring parties that have throughout the years, patronized Skie’s store enough that she offered them a special “Adventurer’s Discount” in return for their loyalty. Some of the names include the Greenswords, The Unhumans, The Singers of Ehlonna, Varmint Patrol, and most recently The Silver Phoenix Adventuring Company.
Inside, the store’s shelves are fairly sparse, but never empty. Skie sells enough magic to keep herself in comfort and has no real ambition to make a fortune at the job. Each of the items on her shelves is kept in a glass cabinet under lock and key, displayed on a silk pillow with a small placard that describes the item’s history, powers, and what party sold the item to Skie.
