Isan's Extrinsic Emporium
This popular novelty shop is the culmination of Isan Chashy's lifetime of travel, during which he saw every country in Khorvaire, traveled to Xen'drik several times, and even once came within a few yards of the shores of Argonnessen. Though Isan is no longer in any physical condition to travel the rest of the world, his shop brings the world to him.
Visitors to this popular novelty shop are greeted with the sights of Xen'drik. In the window are 1-inch-tall replicas of Xen'drik's pyramids and tiny pieces of colored glass touted as dragonshards. Exotic plants from the mysterious continent grow in pots throughout the shop, and in the back stands a statue of a giant wearing a light, flowing robe tied with a rope at the waist.
But Isan deals in more than just novelties -- he also sells a wide variety of magic items. An artificer of great talent, he created many of the items for sale here. The rest he traded for, found, or purchased.
Isan displays the nonmagical goods on the shelves and keeps the magic items locked away in what appear to be glass cases. In reality, they are metal frames with walls of force serving as the transparent panes. Isan can temporarily lower the walls of force with a ring that he wears on his right hand. When he touches one of the sides of the case with it, the force wall winks out of existence for 1 minute. His ring is specially made to work on the cases, and it has no effect on ordinary walls of force.
The auras of the magic items in his cases range from faint to moderate. He does have a few more powerful items in his shop, but he keeps those in the back room. Customers are allowed to touch the magic items, but only under the supervision of Isan himself or one of his three daughters, who help him run the shop.
Isan Chashy is an older man with a ring of wispy white hairs that seem to fly in a hundred different directions at once surrounding his mostly bald head. A former adventurer himself, he is always happy to hear tales of PC expeditions.
