The Citadel of Chaos

The tall man agrees and persuades the shorter man that this is a fair price.
The short man mumbles and curses, offering 6,
then 7, Gold Pieces but the price has been fixed at 8.
You may, if you wish, offer the tall man 8 Gold Pieces yourself,
although you will have to conjure up some Fool's Gold to give to him.

If you want to do this, and use up a Fool's Gold Spell.

If not, the short man eventually agrees to the price, buys the dagger and leaves.

You may remain to talk to the tall man,

or may continue on your way.
