"First stop - somewhere to sell this old spell book!"
Lawrance looks for and finds a place that is willing to purchase one of the 'acquired' spell books, haggling happily with the vendor.
Afterwards, he heads to find a Dwarven craftsmith, able to commission a chest of considerable value, wanting to place a deposit on the work. Specific Action:
not sure what to roll for bargaining - Arcana (+7) for knowing the value? Perception (+4) against deception? Just rolling - add what is needed.
Edit: Insight is +1, so I rolled a 10.
