Heavens forfend! To think this would happen in my kitchen. The nerve! ...Oh, you there. Yes, you. You've the look of a man who knows what he's about, and I'm in desperate need of one such as you!
Picked myself a bushel of Meryall Agronomics' apples, but wouldn't you know, some nasty mandragora swiped those red beauties from under my nose! Not sure how they got in here in the first place, but that's beside the point.
I could well try to steal them back myself, but goodness knows how many hours it'd be before I stumbled upon that blasted bandit. I'm only one man─I can't cover all that ground by myself! So, be a friend and help me get my apples back, would you?
I just knew you'd oblige me! Now then, let's talk strategy. I'll scour the area just south of here, so you take the north. Deal?
Mandragoras bury themselves in the dirt to hide, so if you see one of their bulbous heads poking out of the soil, hit them with one of these malodorous bombs. They'll be so surprised to get a face full of stink, they'll leap out, and leave behind my apples.
The thief will probably take off running, but let them go. I just want my pilfered fruit returned. Besides, mandragora carcass isn't on the menu tonight. Right then, I'll leave you to your search. Happy hunting!
