Shadows of Absalom
Though a great deal of buying and selling goes on in The Coins and The Docks, real business takes place in the Merchants’ Quarter. It is here that the merchant caravans of half the world are bought and sold before they ever set out from their homelands, the price of mead is set throughout the Inner Sea, and fortunes that would make kings weep are made and lost every day. It is essentially the business sector of the city, rather than a marketplace. It is also where the Clockwork Cathedral is situated.
