Merchant District

Sasserine’s heart, and perhaps even its soul, is lodged
firmly in Merchant District. The first district most
visitors reach, it’s often the only one they need ever
explore. Merchant District shops run the gamut from simple
grocers to specialized buildings like potion emporiums, dagger
sellers, exotic pet dealers, and magic item bazaars.
Merchant District’s representative nobility are the Arabanis.
Lady Anwyn Arabani is an eccentric noblewoman who has a
strange fascination with drow, and even claims to have drow
ancestors (although her relatively pale skin would indicate
otherwise). She’s quite popular, as she goes above and beyond to
ensure the people of Merchant District have fair representation
in the Dawn Council. She entertains many suitors, but has yet
to settle on a single person to share her estate.

City Watch

The Merchant’s Watch is perhaps the most efficient of the
seven watches. Corruption appears here and there, but the
leadership is honest and does its best to maintain a crime-free
environment. This is the busiest district in the city, and minor
crimes are generally ignored, allowing the watch to focus its
attention on larger problems. The Merchant Garrison isn’t
the largest among the seven watches (that honor goes to the
Champion’s Watch), but it’s certainly the most justly run of
the seven.

Citizens

If you’re from Merchant District, you could be from anywhere.
You may have grown up in Sasserine, or you might have only
recently come to the city on the decks of a ship from anywhere
else in the world, in which case your reasons for staying can be
as varied as your actual homeland. Natives of Merchant District
likely come from merchant families, or grew up the children of
innkeepers or bartenders. You’re probably a very social creature,
and the thought of isolation or the natural world fi lls you with
nervous fear. If you’re a cleric, you might worship Fharlanghn,
but in actuality this district is a melting pot of faiths.
