Ironbeard!

LyrLyr Member Posts: 420 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
The rowdy notes of a drinking song, faint at first, then rising to the undisputed intensity of a 
Dwarf On A Mission, herald the arrival of Ironbeard the Magnanimous who casts his beam of a smile 
about himself as he arrives.
Ironbeard the Magnanimous hiccups and says, "Special people like Lyr deserve something especially 
special on special days."
Ironbeard the Magnanimous just gave you a giftbag!

Thousands of tiny iron rings link together in a flawless pattern of sturdy metal to form the fabric 
of this heavy giftbag, rattling together at every movement with a noise like falling rain. Skilfully 
applied colour flows across the face of the bag's surface, forming the carefully rendered shape of a 
tall, square iron tower with windows and a door that open ominously into an interior concealed by 
shadow. A thin cord of some surprisingly strong, obscure material forms a drawstring for the bag, 
ornate little tassels adorning its ends.
It has 2 months of usefulness left.
It weighs about 22 pounds.

    I was going to put this in quotes, but this works too:

    The rowdy notes of a drinking song, faint at first, then rising to the undisputed intensity of a Dwarf On A Mission, herald the arrival of Ironbeard the Magnanimous who casts his beam of a smile about himself as he arrives.
    Ironbeard the Magnanimous bounces gaily from one foot to the other, his stomach jiggling dangerously. "I'm so happy!" he declares. "Are you happy, Trilliana? Here, be happy!"
    Ironbeard the Magnanimous just gave you a giftbag!

    "Thanks!" you say to Ironbeard the Magnanimous.
    Ironbeard the Magnanimous exclaims, "N *hic* O neea to thAnk me! Thanw the Goddsh fOr Taeir gift of liife *hic* !"

    "cherry wood vial352959"                a cherry wood vial
    5721 gold sovereigns.

    You cringe and drop your face into your palms with a shake of your head.

    With a sudden look of concentration, Ironbeard the Magnanimous smiles a crooked smile, rubs his ample stomach, and fades to nothingness, followed by the sound of a distant belch.

    You take 7 vials from a heavy iron-link giftbag.
    There are no more cherry wood vials there.

    (Cyrene): You say, "So, does anyone want some random concoctions I got from Ironbeard?"

    The sweltering heat of the forge spills out across the land as the rumbling voice of Phaestus booms, "Ironbeard! What have you done?"

    You attempt to stifle your amusement but cannot help laughing aloud.

    The prompt of that shout was the ram's horn I got from Ironbeard, unfortunately. 5mc worth of toilet paper.

    It varies. I've had some times where I got visited by him 4 times over the schedule, and others none.

    @Sena IIRC from the last time he was about, the "Not on your ship" part is also false. Also, has the last line always referenced "Death's bleak halls", or was it "Maya's halls" before yesterday?
