"Welcome to the Labri Market! You can find anything here." -- Basler

You grew up among those who made their living through trade. This could be the busy markets of a city, an oceanic trade route, or the corridors of power in an embassy or castle. You understand that some people have wants or needs, that others can satisfy them, and the power that comes from mediating between the two.

You've learned to approach situations through canny negotiation.

  • Make a deal or haggle over details
  • Navigate a complex or ambiguous situation

  • Overcomplicate a plan or solution
  • Value people as commodities rather than individuals with thoughts and feelings
