The Trades District

Vorhal_The_Trades_District__2_.jpg

The Trades District borders the harbors of The City of Vorhal on their northern and western sides, offering immediate marketplace access to incoming merchant vessels who wish to sell their wares. The streets that cut through here are laid out surprisingly well, and are all lined with shops and storefronts crammed tightly together. Small stalls and pavilions are set up wherever room can be found, and the roadways occasionally open into sprawling open air markets where traveling merchants, street urchins and vendors hawking their wares all vie for spaces to lay out their fare. With such a diversity of sellers here, virtually any goods, services or creatures from across the seas can be procured.

Businesses

Most registered businesses in the Trades District tend to lean towards more established patrons when pushing their wares. While not necessarily selling to the city’s elite, these shops find themselves needing to make decent coin in order to pay the rent in such a desirable seller’s location. Shops and stalls here benefit from a reasonable City Watch presence, and don’t typically require their own guards. These businesses see goods come in and out of their doors regularly, and are typically willing to purchase a few hundred gold worth of merchandise per month.

Organizations

Being the heart of commerce in Vorhal, the Trades District sees very few organizations operating with in it, typically reserving most of its building space for shops and businesses. Those organizations that do exist within its borders tend to be more focused on financial and trade pursuits than those found elsewhere in the city.
