| HESTER'S ITEM INQUISITION SERVICES |
+----------------------------------------------------------------------+
| |
| Welcome adventurer. Looking for a value in gold that any shopkeeper |
| can give you? Then you have come to the wrong place. However, are |
| you perhaps looking for the true value of an item? How useful it is |
| going to be to you? If so, I can tell you what you need to know |
| about your posession but there will, of course, be a small fee. |
| |
| How much work I have to do researching an item mostly depends on how |
| powerful that item is, and therefore, its level. I feel that we can |
| reach agreement on a price of 1 gold * the level of the item. |
| |
| Please clean up after yourself. I can't guarantee an item will be |
| useful! If you don't want it or it has no value, drop and sacrifice |
| it before you go. Help keep our city (and my study) clean! |
| |
| To make use of my services, simply make the sure the item is in | | your inventory (not worn), and type 'IDENTIFY <item>'. |
