The Chicane Guild is the business end of the largest of the three major Halfling clans – the Marktunsels. It runs dozens of barges and boats up and down the river between Sumberton and the cities to the south.
The guildhouse had humble beginnings as a shack on one of the cit y piers, and then grew to a warehouse. It finally became a full-fledged mercantile fortress. On lookers compare t he bulbous business to a spider’s body, with the guild’s many private piers looking like legs. Those who have been inside say that the guildhouse is like a labyrinth, the result of a hundred small additions made by architects indifferent or hostile to others work.
