Life in the village is dull. Till the fields, weave the cloth...is that all there is to life? Not anymore! You've heard tell of a dragon with a fabulous treasure that lives up in the hills. Surely your life savings of 200 shiny marbles will be enough to buy a sword or spell to kill the monster -- and then you'll be rich, rich, RICH! HAHAHAHAHAHAH
Ahem. An old curiosity shop is open nearby. The wrinkled proprietor looks at you uncuriously. Two items seem promising here: a book of spells and a gleaming sword and suit of armor. You have exactly enough for either of them. Which do you want?
