The gate-town to Bytopia, Tradegate is a mercantile center second only to Sigil itself, and much more specialized. Trade caravans come to and from Tradegate on journeys around the planes, and the Tradegate coin—with a star on one side, and a depiction of Ilmater on the other—serves as one of the most popular currencies on the planes.
The town is industrious and ethical, accommodating no shifty or unproductive members of society. The poor and the invalid are sent to the workhouse, and adventuring is considered a poor excuse to pillage. They also frown on theft, slavery, and senseless killing, and aren’t above the death penalty for offenders. Perhaps surprisingly for a merchant town, there is no credit to be found in Tradegate; those who cannot pay with cold hard coin are simply denied the service or good they seek.
