You want to trade, you'll show me the goods first. Then maybe we'll deal.
Gods, these are military-issue Mark XLIII sedatives! High quality stuff. Someone snatched a batch a while ago, but you wouldn't believe how quickly imperial medicines sell.
Folk are always on edge around here, you see, never knowing when the Empire might decide to launch an assault. Some get so worked up that they can scarcely sleep without a little alchemical encouragement.
How much do you want for them? I'm a bit curious how you came by this stash, but I'll take it off your hands all the same.
...Food? That's it─just food? All right, well here's a sackful of assorted edibles. Nice doing business with you!
If you come across any more of those sedatives, you know where to find me! [Talking with him on the "deliver the foodstuffs" step]
