"It takes your considerable beauty and makes it legendary." Keldon
says. "It magnifies and enhances what is there, so that to those that
look upon you, even those who might find a female humanoid a less than
attractive affair, would view you as supremely beautiful."

"It is very popular with the ladies." he adds simply. "And I have
contacts in the New German Republic who can exchange Coalition credits
for NGR credits with a fifteen percent fee charged."

Keldon's eye blinks, and for a moment the odd store owner says nothing.

"It is a device of supreme revulsion, to be sure." Keldon says. "But
aside from the horror of the thing, it is insanely valuable. I will be
perfectly honest with you. I do not have funds sufficient to pay for
it. I could give you perhaps three hundred thousand credits, perhaps
that again in other items. But I am an honest broker, and I will tell
you now that I would turn around sell this to the Archbishop for
twenty times that price. If I were brave enough to venture to New
Camelot or the New German Republic, I might be able to double that."

"Let me make a proposal, sir and madam." Keldon says. "I could
introduce you to the Archbishop, which is something the average fellow
with a Splugorth Staff of Eylor might have a problem not being
arrested on the spot. We can negotiate a sale and my fee will be ten
percent of the sale price, as a finder's and broker's fee. In the
meantime, I will open a line of credit with you and your lady for,
say, five hundred thousand credits?"
