The point is, if Saxe wanted cheap potions for himself that is a totally different matter - the reaction would be to Saxe himself.
As it was a demand to make stuff for the city of Thakria and as Saxe is a Baron /Minister of Thakria I assume the demands were made on Thakrias behalf.
A simple apology from Saxe for his presumptions will again see Artisans supplying their wares.
My personal thoughts are, apart from supplying those who use your wares to kill you or your friends, supply of potions etc should be available to all - at a cost of course.
If \"smmaler\" Thakrians are suffering ask your Barons to sort it out .
