How U Mine 4 Fish?
Melmond is an enigma of trade, in that it never seems to have any shortage of wealth to trade (goods, minerals, weapons, magic, services, etc.). Because of this, all organized lands seek trade with it and the power it provides to whoever is in control. Most notable of the land is its mountains, which house not only a large gold mine, but a home of a powerful wizard.
Dravo Madaras VII of the Madaras Syndicate has the most influence here, due to it being his home of choice.
While the Assassin’s Guild doesn’t have an official base, due to their nature of needing to always be on the move, but they have the most visible presence here.
