Challenge #04207-K189: Little Discoveries, Large Impact

The apprentice mage welcomed only enough gold, and the charm, to allow them to travel to where Wraithvine asked them to come to set up their little shop.

Composting and mulching is a natural process involving organic waste. And as such, it is almost inevitable to attract… little visitors.
