Kandori Merchants' Guild
The Kandori Merchants’ Guild protects and furthers the financial interests of Kandor, and its members are known and respected across the continent. Kandor is the only country with a large, nation-wide merchants’ guild that most traders and merchants are a member of. The merchants in other countries are generally too protective of their independence and competitiveness to join forces in such a manner. That the Kandori do so may be indicative of their pragmatic Borderland attitude, putting the needs of the country and the Borderlands ahead of personal concerns.
The guild headquarters is located in Chachin, capital of Kandor. There are way-stops, banking houses and trade stations run by the guild across the country, and there are many inns that cater for them (although usually not exclusively), such as the Evening Star.
