I was completing my third quest, the letter quest for the boyfriend. I’d just found armour and everything was going great.
Went into a shop carrying a fishing rod, awesome! Time to trade this puppy in for a helmet!
Wouldn’t you know it, stole the helmet AND stole a scroll of fire to clear the baddies outside, left my quest scroll in a closed shop!
Mwap mwa! Backstory: Fishing rod lets you steal but blacklists you at vendors.
