Alain is a druid gardener in Taverley. He looks over the local tree patch, and accepts a payment to look after the planted tree. If players ask, he can chop down trees for those unwilling to chop down the trees themselves. To do this, he requests a payment of 200 coins.
Alain also sells basic farming tools, which can be accessed by talking to him and asking Can you sell me something? It is not an actual shop and it has no set stock; each item has to be bought individually through the dialogue.
If a player tries to use the charm option on Alain, he will not succumb and will comment that if the player uses it too much it will lead to his/her downfall.
There was a glitch where, if Alain was on the coast south of the tree patch, and a player tried to make a payment for a tree, he would say "I would but there aren't any Farming patches around here to look after."
