Yo, Dudes and Dudettes.
I was dinking around in Durlag's Tower and I got the urge to roam. You know the urge? To Roam?
So, like, I roamed over to the south and west. My load was heavy and my pockets were full, so I stopped into the Naskel shop to trade loot for cash. I knew I would be coming back to Durlag's Tower to hang out and didna wanna drag my loots all around the frigging realm, so I dropped some stuff there to be picked up later.
I can't remember all I left there. Too many gnome cookies back in the day, ya dig? It was a lot of stuff.
I told the shopkeeper to leave it all be. I smiled really big and said, "Please," ya know? In case he wasn't adequately intimidated by the pointy teeth in my patented valley-elf grin, I squeezed my boobies at him. Between my biceps, bicuspids and boobies, I thought he was convinced. I figured it was all gonna be there waiting for me just like I laid it out.
It poofed. I specifically left some grapes there. I mean, gnome cookies aside, I'm pretty danged sure.
I left a mallet head and a wardstone, too. Although everything else vanished, the mallet head and the wardstone were still there. I guess the shopkeeper sold everything else, even a few extra arrows I had on hand. He prolly ate the grapes.
He tried to look innocent, DnD's, but he was guilty. I woulda roughed him up a little around the edges, but the Paladin frowned at me. He frowns at me a lot. Too much, frankly. If he wasn't so handy with the laying on of hands--both ways, Dudettes, and he surely is six kinds of cute--I'd have shucked his frowny butt long since.
Just to be sure, I trekked all the way back to the tower and gave it a look-see. No surprise: no grapes.
Sooo... It looks a bit grim for old Spiegs, DnD's. Does anyone know any secret wizardly ways to warp some extra grapes out of hidden interstices of the universes? It prolly won't be the end of the world if I don't get my grapes back, ya dig? Prolly. Can't be certain. It might be that the only way I can get rid of all the problems of the Sword Coast is hinged on a measly bunch of grapes.
Anyone know? I haven't been this stymied in centuries.
Thanks in advance, Dudes and Dudettes.
