Within Gwynedd is a new arrival who has cleared some land to set up his spot. At the moment all that exists is a tent.
Noticing that other businesses seem to be flourishing and thriving in the area, the new arrival stops and seriously takes a lay of the land.
After several minutes of rest, the Apothecary establishes his first structure, a hitching post for Druso the donkey and any other visitors. Taking some strong timber between two trees, Raphael ties the timbers with some secure lashings.
With the hitching post set up, Raphael unhooks Druso and ties him with enough rope to eat the grass to his liking. Bracing the wheels of the cart some distance away from the hitching post, Raphael begins setting up his small shop and tent.
While taking a brisk walk around the village, a new sight catches the eye of the innkeeper. He slows down a bit as he looks on at the newcomer, then approaches him at his post.
"Well hello there sir! It's been a while since I have seen a new comer in Gwynedd, I am Felipe, the innkeeper. What brings you here in these parts?"

Noticing an arrival, Raphael looks up first from his cart, then stands up. Wiping some of ungent off his hands he approaches the man at his partial clearing.
Sticking his hand forward, "The name is Raphael and your town here has no Apothecary. I am in need of a place to practice my craft and this location," he spreads his arms, "Seems to fit my needs."
"I may come by your inn this evening. Have you any mulled wine this time of year with maybe a bit of clove or all spice in it?"
The time grows late on his first day, at least Raphael can say he and Druso are fairly well off. His leanto will do until he can purchase fabric to construct a tent or a small shack.
Druso seemed content with his plot of grass and his tether was secure.
Before laying down for the night, Raphael secured his wares in his cart. Closing the paneled top after repacking all the bottles and vials, was pretty easy. The lock was simple but secure and left Raphael with a sense of peace as he went to sleep.
With no manners and a lack of hospitality Krusten shows up at the plot of land and simply says, "Why are you here and where have you come from? What are your intentions?" She stands relax with one hand on her waist and her other hand pointing towards the man.
