The War of Aconi
The Azure Council
The Azure Council is a merchant’s guild that has its main halls in Kingstown, though it has halls in every large city Aconi.
The Azure Council is divided into three sects, Sect of Crafting, which provides everything needed to craft within city. Its main function is smithing, as it provides everything from weapons to horseshoes, to masterwork weapons for the nobles, made by the master blacksmiths for a handsome fee. Next, there is the Sect of Trade, which controls everything that comes in and out of the city, and employs almost all of the merchants that travel around the kingdom, within and without the crossroads. Sect of Produce, this sect employs workers that clear the dense trees of the woods around them, and also controls much of the farming produce coming out of the towns to the south. Any employees of the Azure Council wear azure blue and black chequered tunics, or overalls depending on their trade. The azure council has a banner, which is a sliver hammer and sickle, balanced upon golden scales on a field of deep blue. Every employee has a badge of esteem that is proof of their affiliation with the guild. It is a hammer(craft), sickle(produce), or scales(trade), carved from silver, depending on their trade.
