City of the Beast
United Merchan's Guild
United Merchant’s Guild
The UMC is a group similar to the academy in that it does not represent a single power, but rather, the will of the heads of the major mercantile powers. However, unlike the academy, they don’t elect from within, but they choose a candidate that is entirely outside their guilds to sit on the council seats to ensure an impartial representation of their interests.
They maintain a large network of banks that spans the city. It is the single largest, most secure facility for the public to store money and funds. Additionally, it can be done under a family name, an individual name, or for an extra fee, under no name at all.
