“I’m sorry, I don’t think we’ve been properly introduced – my name is Feitr Sordsmann!”

– Feitr, being asked to use any of the other enchanted weapons found in the past three dungeons

As far as I’m concerned, the only purpose of shops in video games is to pawn off all the treasures I’ve recently stolen to build up my ever growing hoard of gold that I never spend. If I was meant to have an upgraded weapon at that point in the game, Mother Nature would have provided it conveniently packaged in the depths of whatever spooky forest or haunted castle I was currently exploring.
