Remarkably, the owners of the gemshops in Wehnimer's Landing, Teras Island, Solhaven, River's Rest, Icemule Trace, Zul Logoth, Ta'Illistim, Ta'Vaalor, Cysaegir and Four Winds Island have all decided to expand their businesses at the same time. Representatives from the Elanthian Modern Merchanting Standards and Practices Society were unavailable to address the issue of possible collusion, but since the changes seem to benefit the consumer, it is unlikely the issue will be pursued.
In the past, treasure items sold to the gemshops never appeared on the open market, apparently being passed to private collectors. Gem merchants are now seeking a larger clientele. From now on all items, except unset gems, will appear for resale on tables found in the shops. The tables will separate items into the magical and non-magical.
Elementalists will be able to investigate the properties of the items with Elemental Detection.
GM Fazli has been hanging out with the gemshop owners recently. Should the Elanthian Modern Merchanting Standards and Practices Society investigate the remarkable coincidence of all gemshop owners simultaneously making the same changes, it is likely GM Fazli will be brought in for questioning.
Gemshop renovations will be discussed here.
