[Malkor] eh...
[Malkor] Jaji's taing advantage of my reputation...
[Malkor] Bah.
[Malkor] I went to the merchant along with everyone else...
[Malkor] when Algernon was selling his dagger
[Malkor] I saw two orange-cloaked exiles conducting business in an unsecure manner
[Malkor] many were trying to get a crack at the "1c" deal.
[Malkor] I ran up and got the brambles, and gave them back to the purchaser when the crowd had cleared...
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Malkor] Malkor sighs.
[Malkor] done

[Zorton] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Zorton
[Haengemie] Malkor, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Malkor] *sigh*
[Malkor] I don't think he understands that you have to name the price you expect to be payed for the item...
[Malkor] I don't expect him to be grateful that I spared him from really losing the brambles...
[Malkor] But to sue me after I gave them back.... that's just unreasonable.
