"Greetings. I am Po Fang, and I am in the business of finding and selling rare, one-of-a-kind items. My most recent sale was a collection of ancient Luxon scrolls purporting to shed some light on the origin of these mysterious people.
Unfortunately, all this talk of "plague" and "affliction" has really hurt business. No one is seeking out strange new wonders, they are too concerned about catching something contagious. I admit to some concern myself, and if I do not find something to invest in soon, I will need to search elsewhere. I would be extremely interested in hearing about any potential investments you may come across in your travels."
