Formed in 685 SG, the Merchant Exchange is the work of a shadowy group of merchant royalty to bring together all the commodity trading under one roof. Recent political struggles, wars, and religious battles have hampered the growth of trade in the area, encouraging the merchants to move away from trading in disputed areas. They approached Dougan Frost and his Dragoons to provide security. With the political ties, hidden intrigue, and one of the most powerful armies in the realm guarding them, the Exchange is assumed to be safe from the turmoil in the realm.

(He'll do pro bono work for good causes, especially regufees from chaotic disasters.)
