After examining the three arrows for a bit she replies that she would be willing to trade them for 10gp a piece worth of her goods.

"Two and some coin for the adamantine then..." Parveth fusses with her pouch of gold and counts out a small pile of 30 gold pieces, and then begins moving handfuls of coins into a pouch until she's moved 340 pieces into it. "...and this should cover the remaining cost for the two flare arrows, yes?"

Trade:
--Two of the blunt force-push arrows (10 gp each)
--370 gp
Adamantine arrow (50 gp)
Flare arrow x2 (340 gp net)

Ketha asks the female drow "Do you have any scrolls for sending messages? Or long distance teleportation?"

"Hmm..." Ketha thinks for a moment, before shaking her head. "Any books on history or local legends?"

"Oh yes, plenty of those. Anything in particular you're looking for?" the younger drow asks. She also indicates a nearby bookshelf as if to say "you could also just look on your own, that's where they are".

((OOC yeah, anything in particular you're looking for? If not that's fine and you can just say you got something and I'll figure out what it was. Unless it's something real unusual it's going to be 25 gp no matter what it is since that's PHB price for books.))

Steam & Parveth (Bookstore)
At the bookstore, Steam slides amongst the shelves, grazing the tomes with her fingertips as she skims titles for text she can actually read (Gnomish). “Might you have a text that talks about a set of magical keys? People have been discussing them a surprising amount lately, and I wanted to make sure I was caught up.”
(Intentionally not saying she has one, can make a Deception if you really want.)

Parveth gives the two drow an acknowledging nod as she strolls the store, looking for Elvish script.

The bookstore drow both think about it for a bit and shake their heads in the negative.

The two books in Gnomish are....the Travels of Bulbous Bulleameon & The Fable of the Emerald Path.

The three books in Elvish are... Exile from the Feywild Part III, A Treatise on Elvish Nature, & the Tale of Autumn.

Ketha nods a thanks to the drow and goes to the pointed section, looking for anything in a language she can understand (Common, Draconic, Dwarvern)...

Ketha doesn't find anything in Common.

There's a single book in Draconic that's really thick in arcane lingo about theories about shadow and darkness magic. It's basically unreadable to anyone who doesn't have 14+ Int and training in Arcana. Even to those people it's complex and just... well it's like reading a scientific journal full of lingo it's inventing that you have to learn to understand new lingo it invents and espousing about stuff in an incredibly dry fashion. At least this is how it appears from a casual perusal. The book doesn't seem to have a title, as if the author figured it was appropriate or that anyone interested wouldn't really care about a title or just completely forgot to give it one.

There's a few books in Dwarven. One called Smithson (in dwarven) that's partially about dwarven smithing techniques and also dueregar culture and also part tale about the hard working life and troubles of a dueregar named Smithson.
There's a few dueregar myths and legends. One about the first encounter between a dueregar clan and a drow city. One about the failed and unfortunately "successful" attempts of a master craftsman to forge items with the dark of the Underdark itself. A few other more standard fair heroic stories (that are a bit questionable since their culture's heroic virtues don't perfectly align with what Ketha's might be), some seeming to be legendary while others appear to be more or less factual accounts and some that seem like they're a mix between the two.

Steam & Parveth (Bookstore)
Steam leafs through the two texts before confidently folding the Travels of Bulbous Bullaemeon under an arm and setting the Fable of the Emerald Path back on a shelf in the vague vicinity of where it had been. She’s excited to compare the life tale of another to her own.

Parveth picks up each individually, investigates the first couple of pages where the author’s note and introductory section generally are, and then sets it back before moving to check the next. After some thought, she moves back to collect all three of them, interested in the topic of the former, appreciating the intellectual approach of the next, and the parallels to her own life of the third.
Holding her three books and ready to checkout, she moves to Steam and holds out an open hand. “Your book.”

Steam looks confused for a moment and goes to hand her the Gnomish book. ”I can take that as well, but no, pass over your ritual book.” Her hand beckons at Steam again, who seriously contemplates for a moment before retrieving and passing over her book bound in red leather.

Parveth takes her small stack of books to the  two drow. “These texts interest me, and I was hoping you could copy a ritual or two into this tome.” She places a hand on the book bound in red leather.

Bookstore Transaction!:
4 books
—Exile From the Feywild Part III
—A Treatise on Elvish Nature
—Tale of Autumn
—Travels of Bulbous Bullaemon
Alarm (Ritual lvl 1)
Silence (Ritual lvl 2)

100+50+100 = 250 gp
Discount of 25 makes cost 225 gp?
Leaves Parveth with another 250 or so, will update the document when this becomes approved / I’m not on my mobile

Ketha places the Draconic book and the Smithson book under her arm and takes a more detailed look at the book detailing the encounter between dueregar and drow...
