The Merchant


The Merchant

The Merchant will teach you the art of communication. There are two men sharing an exchange of words, the breath carrying a message with words crafted to attain a specific goal – acquire what one seeks. The desire relies on the power of the word. It can be underestimated yet carry such force as to elevate the soul, seduce the heart or cut another person down. One can wield their voice to express a feeling, share knowledge, invoke insight, coerce, or cheat. Once the words are spoken, little can be done to reverse its course as it is reverberating out in the world in waves of sound. You cannot unring a bell. How do you plan to use your voice, Explorer?
