Stall Merchants
• day
This is another category of merchants. These merchants have stalls in the bazar and (for the most part) pack up at night. Most of these merchants are Traveling Merchants here to trade with one another before heading off to distant markets.

• day, Stall Merchant
This high price merchant can create tokens provided you can meet the price.

Gambling Corner
• day, Stall Merchant
There is a small gambling area off to the side of the market. There's a machine where tokens, dreams, memories can be input to get "gambling tokens" - small sea-shell shaped objects, number depending on value of input. Putting these back in the machine gets you back the original object, if you have enough tokens. Hobgobs gamble using dice and their own version of cards; also has a carnival-like area where other games can be had.

Traveling Merchants
These merchants are just passing thru and make use of the port town to trade goods and as a trading hub.
