Pathfinder Chronicles: Heroes of the Mists
If it can be bought, it’s for sale in the Coins. Money is the only authority here, and you get what you pay for. The Coins is the most crowded and noisy of all Absalom’s districts, and the shouting and haggling does not quiet much at night. Taverns never close, the open markets light up with torches and spells of illumination alike, and public Time Callers wander about shouting out every hour on the hour. Even when not in a store or the bazaar, a visitor can see buying and selling on every street corner and in every restaurant. It’s been joked that wives in the Coins bargain the price of their husbands’ dinners, and for at least some families it’s true.
