You say, 'Hail, Thach Jerden'
Thach Jerden says, 'Greetings, adventurer. Have you perhaps heard of these strange [changes] that have been happening to familiar areas?'
You say, 'changes'
Thach Jerden says, 'They're very odd. For a brief period suddenly areas that we thought we knew will be transformed. The monsters that used to inhabit them will suddenly gain in strength and abilities, and their [equipment] will be changed as well.'
You say, 'equipment'
Thach Jerden says, 'Some of them have come into possession of some wonderful [glowing] armors that I find endlessly fascinating, but I have not been able to obtain them on my own.'
You say, 'glowing'
Thach Jerden says, 'Have you found some? May I have them? I'll offer you a piece of [armor] from my own collection in trade. They're... very, very nice.'
You say, 'armor'
Thach Jerden says, 'I will match whatever type of armor you bring me. An arm for an arm, you might say. I have several different types of bracers or wristbands, though, so if I give you one that you don't want, hand it back to me and I will exchange it for another that you can use.'
