    One of the things you can say to a citizen in Bridgetown is "I heard you have an apothecary in town. Do you know anything about it?" You'd expect that to lead to directions to the apothecary - rather useful if you're in Bridgetown to get rid of a cursed albatross. But you don't get directions. You get stuck with the "Mysterious Plants" sidequest instead. And you still don't know where to find the apothecary, whether to hand over an albatross or to progress the sidequest.

    Suggestion: change the dialog to give directions. And only trigger "Mysterious Plants" if you've talked to the apothecary and agreed to do it.

    Quick hotfix: just put the directions to his location on the quest log entry. Because while we're talking about him, the quest's first entry entry ("I heard talks about...") is duplicated.

    Also you should write in the next entry how much gold he asked you to gift to the church for him, because he won't mention in again and so you won't know how much it was until you try to make a donation while having enough.

    Also I'm pretty sure he said either 1k or 10k (probably the latter), but when speaking to churchie my only option was to gift 8500, which was enough to advance the apothecary's quest. I didn't check wether I actually paid only 8500 or if I payed 10k and the dialogue line with the churchie is wrong though.

    The whole point was not to have a quest log entry at all when you talk to the citizen. So I've dealt with the dialog file and now:
    bridgetown_citizen1.jpg
    If you answer "What else can you tell me about him?", this is the answer:
    bridgetown_citizen2.jpg bridgetown_citizen3.jpg

    You can still trigger the quest by talking to the apothecary, and now you know where to find him, plus you can get hints on both his albatross habit and his plants quest.

    Here are the dialog files which make the citizens a bit more helpful.
