Description

Merchant caravans and ships bring household luxury wares from faraway lands. Newly arrived merchants look for a merchant center with an available stall from which to sell their exotic wares, or to serve as a base while they purchase locally-produced wares from the city's luxury shops. If no stalls are vacant, the merchant sets up shop someplace near his customers or suppliers. He conducts as much business as he can, then returns home. Merchants continue to come and go periodically, buying and selling all they can on each trip.

Merchant centers provide an organizational advantage. It is easier to keep track of the city's merchant commerce when it's centralized, and easier for your scribes to record merchant transactions and collect tariffs on these. Some unscrupulous merchants set up shop outside of merchant centers to escape paying taxes, but scribes know this and occasionally go out looking for these renegade stalls.

A merchant center open to waterborne trade sports a dock, and is called a quay.
