  9. The Normal Store – Run by John Normalman, who is most definitely a human and not three goblins in a trenchcoat named Tip, Tap and Top (Every time you see “John“ it is quite clearly a different goblin at the top. Even if you turn your back for only a moment to browse the shelves.)
  10. Erb’s Herbs – Less of a shop, more of a man with a canopy, small wood desk and ton of pots and jars strapped to him.
  11. Heinz’s potion shop – Famous for its random potion with 57 different effects.
  12. Red Bear’s Maps – A map store, with maps from almost anywhere. When you ask the owner, a native-like druid, how does he have a map of the inside of the BBEG’s HQ, he just says “I know a guy. He owed me one.” or random bullshit like that.
  13. Al Victoriam’s Midnight Emporium – Opens at Midnight, sells till noon, for those late-night/early-morning adventuring needs

  20. The Drakery – a baking chain run by enterprising Dragonborn, kobolds, lizardmen and dragon sorcerers. If you find a scale in your food, get another cake free!
  21. Barry’s Botanical Bar – a pub made from living plants, you have to ask the doors to open (bonus points if you make them say a catchphrase of the pub or just say please nicely and mean it) the drinks all taste HORRIBLE earthy, probably because they use roots twisted together as the barrels
  22. Jacks House of Beans – A coffee shop atop a beanstalk where magical coffees are brewed daily (Ask about their giant-sized discounts)
  23. Books, Scrolls, and Adventures Galore – Two-story shop with moon-shaped windows. The outside looks fairly normal, but the moment you step in, a relaxed feeling settles over you.

  28. Myth Directions – Standard instructions, cartography, and local lore. She collects stories and snippets of information that she’ll sell or trade if first, you show her due respect. But if you offend her, she may send you off with a red herring, a map that will take you the long way ’round, or right to your enemy’s trap. (Think squirrel seller from Rat Race)

  30. Sears – Enchanted outfitters focused on fireproof equipment or flaming weapons

  44. Great Cut! – A weapon shop specialized in slashing weapons. The shop is run by a half-orc blacksmith named Blurg En’deal, who only wears pants and his trusted handcrafted great axe on his back.

  45. Colossus Layers – Retired Elven Ranger focusing on their baking adventures by making very large cakes
