a grunting and grumbling man with a large stomach.
Not at work :
"Hrmmph! Well, I'm busy now."
"Hrmmph, yes, well, come back to my shop tomorrow morning/this afternoon."
Initial visit :
"Hrmmph. Hello." His breathing is quite heavy.
Subsequent visits :
"Hrmmph, well. Haven't we...never mind. Hrmmph."
"What do you need?"
"Efram the provisioner."
"It's a nice enough name, hrmmph."
"Which, torches, oil, gems, backpacks, bags, shovels, or powder kegs?"
"I sell torches, oil, gems, backpacks, bags, shovels, and powder kegs."
"Which of you?"
<NPC Name> looks at <Character Name>. "It'll cost you # gold for each <Item Name>. How many do you want?"
Too many :
"Come now, that's a little much don't you think?"
<NPC Name> frowns at <Character Name>. "Hrmmph. That was a fair price. Well..."
<NPC Name> looks at <Character Name>. "You haven't any room in your pack."
Not enough gold :
<NPC Name> looks at <Character Name>. "A <Item Name> costs more gold than you have."
Made purchase :
He hands <Character Name> # <Item Name>\s.
"There ya go."
Can't carry all :
"That's all you can carry."
Can't afford all :
"That's all you can afford."
"I'm glad you stopped by." He gives you a firm handshake.
"Hrmmph, well, perhaps you could ask someone else."
