  • "My dear, what you're wearing is much too drab. You absolutely must take a lesson in dyeing your tired attire!"
  • "I bring you the richest colors in exchange for your riches!"

Strange Plant Quest

Speaking to the dye trader will show a "strange plant" quest. If the player chooses this option without having a strange plant, nothing will happen. However, if the player chooses it with a strange plant, they will have a random and rare dye.
