Merchant

Merchants are rogues who essentially have sworn an oath to uphold the standards set forth by the guild for morality and trading practices. Each member of the Merchant guild is accountable to his or her duties, these being to the path, the community and thy self.

The goal of the Merchant Guild and its members is the assentation of wealth through honorable behavior, knowledge of economy and legitimate trade. They are protectors of the economy, protecting the market from disruptors and scammers. Their expertise is in trades and study of price and value of goods.

However Merchants are often known to pursue wealth through other means as well, such as through expeditions to recover valuable treasures and ancient relics of great value yet to be discovered by the rest of the world. A merchant can make enormous profits through pursuing their art of treasure hunting and it has thus become a staple of the Merchant Guild.
