"I will handle the transactions, should there be anything you wish to buy."
Item Price Description upon purchase
Sonic Shotgun 15 Rupees 'A good choice if you predict situations where non-lethal violence is required. I do advise you to read the instructions first.'
Genesis Device 14 Rupees 'I advise against the use of this alien technology. Although advanced and reliable, it does pose a serious risk to a human user. Please do read the instructions carefully before using it.'
Clonegg 5000 10 Rupees 'My advise would be to use this device to clone an item of significant value. I hope you do not feel I am stating the obvious here. I am merely trying to assist you of course.'
Spice Weasel 7 Rupees 'This alien critter has been deemed H for Harmless. To humans at least. It is especially useful on space missions where a lack of food supplies is a realistic probability.'
Brain Massager 12 Rupees 'Stimulus by this device to the human brain has been proven to have a positive effect on its cognitive functions. Prolonged exposure may lead to a serious increase in IQ, which may impact your social life. Please consult a psychotherapist if any such problems should arise.'
Betazoid Conductor 16 Rupees 'It is a common misunderstanding that this device redirects 'magic'. I could go into detail about its exact functions, but I've calculated that it would take me roughly 127 years to explain this to an average human. I suppose that, for the time being, you can just read the short description.'
Unstable Warp Plasm 9 Rupees 'Please note that this Warp Plasm is unstable and needs to be contained. Exposure to fire will lead to a fiery explosion. I advise you to only use this under strictly safe circumstances.'
