The Congregation of Merchants (also known as the Merchant Congregation or simply the Congregation) is an Old Continent nation of merchant families who command a great deal of commercial power, so much so that they can maintain neutrality between warring factions. It is currently led by Prince d'Orsay, whose son Constantin d'Orsay was recently granted the governorship of New Serene, the Congregation's latest colony on Teer Fradee.

Culture[edit | edit source]

The Congregation is a merchant principality that prides itself on its neutrality. With its purchasing power to keep themselves well-protected through the Coin Guard as well as the demand other nations have on their goods, the Congregation has been virtually untouched by the conflict that engulfs the rest of the continent, mainly between Thélème and the Bridge Alliance (the latter of which wishes to annex the Congregation through peaceful means). Despite this, the Congregation seeks to establish a foothold on Teer Fradee in search of a cure for the Malichor, a deadly plague that has been ravaging the continent.

Notable Members[edit | edit source]
