The condescending manager can be maneuvered to offer to sell me dust. And she sells it by the crate, because this is BIG BOY BUSINESS. She wants 1,500 copper for a crate. Unsure how many "units" of dust that would equal, but the problem is...
My character, normally a genius sporting 25+ int, decides that this price is OUTRAGEOUS. I am able to say as much or just refuse the deal. Whichever I do, the next time I ask the price is now 2,000 pires, which of course is even out-rage-ous-er to my freshly brain damaged Watcher. The price however doesn't get higher than that, but
I remain unable to freaking pay it.
There is no way to actually trade with her. I'd be super happy to pay 2k. Has anyone actually bought dust off her (or some other merchant)? If the design intent is that the price should be so steep no Watcher would pay it, I'll be happy to spell out the size of my fortune with the corpses of the mill workers after they opine on me stealing dust.
(I know this might have been better posted on the bug forum, but I'll first check here to see if someone knows a way to buy the dust.)
