The town of Price is one of the towns allied with Drakkel that formerly constitute the Drakkellian Alliance. Like all towns and cities in the Drakkellian Alliance, the towns are ruled by mercantile guilds that rule over a thriving economy. Price has a good school and many scholars and artisans. Many Drakkellian nobles have second houses in Price. Price has earned a reputation for being a good place to fence stolen art, find obscure texts or pick up a rare exotic curio from a distant land.
There is a witch who lives a few miles outside of Price. Her name is Grethela and her heritage is somewhat questionable. Some say she is half ogre and other say she's just ugly. In any case, she keeps to herself and most describe her as ornery and dour (and that's on a good day). She is quite skilled in the arts of alchemy and herbalism. She spends her days in the forest gathering herbs, roots, toadstools and berries. She spends her evenings brewing potions in a great black iron cauldron. She has a recipe for almost any potion imaginable - love potions, healing draughts, sleep potions, poisons, antidotes, potions of courage, potions of luck and much more. She sells them on market day in Price and to any who visit her humble home (which is a tree house in the forest). She has a reputation for being able to cure any ill, whether that be a broken bone, a broken heart or a broken promise. The town constable doesn't like Grethela in the least and hopes that one day he can ban her from entering the city or drive her away for good. Despite his efforts to keep her away from the town, her potions are still quite popular.
