"Ahai! Isn't it a beautiful day? My companion, Apida, and I have been playing a delightful game of cards. Gambling heightens the excitement! I've taken him for quite a bit, but now we're in for double or nothing, and neither of us will play until all of the bet is on the table. Apida will only accept currency in the form of my particular goods. Could you do me a favor and collect 3 Mandragor Roots, so we can finish this bet like gentlemen? I'll be sure to give you something in return:"
