The Pillbug's Pantry

Nestled at the base of a cliff and tucked between several
old tenement s , nothing but a painting of a pillbug
perched on a mushroom indicates this building is
anything more than yet another home . The proprietor
of this establishment is a short, rotund man named
ALIVER "PILLBUG" PODIKER (LE male human alchemist
5)
, an accomplished herbalist, gardener, and secret
poisoner. Although he's of mixed Chelish and Varisian
blood, the Sczarni (see area 42) have taken to treating
him as a full-blooded Varisian. While his primary
s ource of income i s from legitimate sales of medicine
and potions, he maintains a healthy side-business
selling poison to Sczarni locals as well. Before he'll
even admit to being a poison merchant, though, a
potential customer first has to ask him, "Have any
happy pillbugs turned up lately?"
