(I'm at work now so I'll only be able to reply sporadically for the next 8 hours or so)
I stop briefly in the street, before turning sharply in the direction of the shop and start mumbling and making bizarre motions with my right hand. Then I start walking into the shop and gesture that you should all follow. "Come, meet my new friend, he might know something of value" you hear my voice say in your heads.
Xenruth goes inside the magic shop, does anyone else follow?
This is the symbol on the shop sign dangling from chains and carved in the doors as you enter the shop. There is also arcane runes carved into the wooden doorframe around the doorway before entering the shop.
You fail your Wisdom save and feel the warlock pushing into your mind. You do not appreciate such an intrusion and are shaken but take no damage becoming wary of the old half-elven man. How do you react? Also the half-flings surprise is in fact genuine. He did not expect visitors in his shop, let alone strangers!
Elly, Shadow, Kohl
You all are unaffected by the professor intrusion but are aware the half-elf doesn't seem to want to or might be unable to speak with his mouth, how do you react?
Roll a wisdom save when you can!
You decidedly notice the shop, although clean, is in disrepair. The half-fling seems to be on his own and although his clothes are worn they are well-cared for. He scurries forward away from the short counter to introduce himself without waiting for anyone asking "I am Thall Borg," he says clutching a collection of protective charms and talismans of Azuth. "It's a...a fine day is it not," he seems to add nervously looking over the party. "Have you...travelled far my friends," the half-fling asks his eyes falling on Elly because they are the only ones in the room, besides Gauldring, that can make eye contact without straining! Addressing Elly specifically "Business? Business is slow seeing you are the first people to come into the shop in...nearly a year," he then says smoothing his wildly kept silver hair with a smile.
You are able to shake off the professor's inturison. The half-fling addresses you "I have! The last traveler that came through the shop was in fact a dwarf! Funny you should mention it! He bought some of my potions, the last sale I made these long months since."
Yes you know exactly who the voice is coming from!

Sometimes a Nat 1 tells a better story than a Nat 20 ever could.
"YES!" the half-fling exclaims. "I was most curious about his weapon, a magnificent hammer, and he...he called himself," he pauses, "Alkeor!! He had been sent by his god to cull the evil here," Thall answers. "I...I might have made him a deal better than any other seekers of my potions who have darkened my doors asking for the maze. I am the only one in the village that seems protected," he clutches his symbols, "but still I can not leave here," he adds sounding frustrated and sorrowful. "Your friend," he then says beginning again with a frown. "He seemed so capable but alas the spire still stands," he says, "I am still here," he adds then falls quiet.
