Bizarre Bazaar is an oddities and specialty shop located in North Kowal. The owner, Kabir Chaudhary, is a straightforward man who just wants a good deal and the best items. He is a hard man to barter with, but he is fair. He deals in contraband, with seemingly no fear for himself.
This three story shop is painting gaudy colors and has all manner of tapestries hanging from flag poles, beams, or plaster walls. The bright green front doors stand open and the smell of incense drifts out.
Inside fabrics of all kinds line tables, while more valuable looking items are behind glass. Everywhere you look strange things can be seen. A rat skeleton with the head of a fish. A moth three times the normal size skewered to a board. Skins from unknown creatures. Many containers covered in runes or symbols. Along the back wall, behind the counter weapons and armor hang from pegs in the warm wooden walls.
A man sits behind the counter, a broad smile flashing white and gold teeth under a healthy moustache. His thin frame hunches slightly, but his fingers and deft and seemingly in constant motion. His brown skin is extenuated by the garish colors he wears.
Welcome welcome my friends. Welcome to the Bizarre Bazaar.

A small shop in the Northeastern part of Kowal, it is across from Hynes Park. It is a both a storefront and the home of the Katniks. They make all sorts of poultices, herbal remedies, and potions. They all work with varying degrees of success.
You approach a small two story building, its foundation solid, but the whole structure leans back and forth as if the builder has been drunk. The windows are all covered in glass, a rare commodity, but they are yellowed from the inside. You open the crooked door and the smells of herbs and incense hit you.
Bottle, vials, and pouches hang everywhere. Herbs hang drying in every available space. 4 different cats lounge in various places about the small shop. A tall broad man, with hunched shoulders and small glass walks to the front counter.
“Well, ahhh, hello there. What might you need?” His accent is thick.
Behind him a woman, looks up from grinding something into a bright purple powder. Her eyes are kind and her smile welcoming.

A place where dwarves live in Kowal.
Dwygar – The Maker
Dwygar is one of the best craftsmen in Kowal. Sadly, due to a recent rash of racism, most dwarves of Dwarf Town are looked down upon. Dwygar still makes his money, but often not making the crafted items he wants. His shop is in the center of Dwarf Town, just a small workshop with a bed in it.
The buildings of dwarf town are different for any others in Kowal. They are all squat one story stone structures with flat roofs. You travel down the wide streets until you see the sign of Dwygar, an anvil with an eye above it.
Inside the small shop has a forge, a large work table and a bed. A short dwarf shouts from the grinding wheel.
Stats: Dwygar: STR 14, DEX 12, Con 15, INT 14, WIS 12, CHA 8
