It is with great pleasure that we announce our final list of Bazaar enterprises 2023. Or, with our in-game time-keeping established by the Esteemed magic guild: 'We are now in the Second Year of the Contest, The First Reign of the Red Dragon', or 2:1RD for short. The bazaar is a neutral player faction which serves all Dragons. Our premise is 'Trade, Training and hearth!'Even the vendors are players!

All your armor needs are covered. The Brass BrigadeVigilant watchmin of the city keep order within a set of ever changing laws. Provided, there's not a vampire chicken running around... (OOG consideration: The city watch leads have themed the Brass brigade towards Terry Pratchett's Watchmen Series, and by design employs humor and absurdity as part of their roleplay, in order to create a dedicated, light hearted space for players to opt in, when 'dealing with the law'.) The Ciceronic CompanionsThe city's tour guides! They'll take copper for a tour or some information about the bazaar or the camps even, but I've heard they trade in more than just coin. The Nest of TimesREAD ALL ABOUT IT! Fresh off the press!
