The Murksong Renaissance
The Gildenrod Exchange is a mall of workshops and merchant stands that sells, buys, trades, and repairs mechanical devices near the heart of the market district in Caldrin City. It was started by Gar and Greta Gildenrod shortly after their invention of the steam engine in 1304. The exchange provides machines to roughly three quarters of the city’s industrial operations, and also boasts a job office, providing many of the city’s immigrants with gainful employment. The owners entertain a large amount of political clout thanks to this, and their endorsements can make or break a potential candidate in a city election.
