Fancy Bastard Scales of War
The earthmote and mercantile district known as Methion is one of the most diverse and cosmopolitan markets to be found anywhere. Only the bazaar in the City of Brass comes close, and while artisans of Hestavar might grudgingly concede that the arms traded in the bazaar are more destructive, they are quick to point out that the markets of Methion are unequaled for weapons more sophisticated than a sharpened metal stick.
The earthmote is also home to the majority of the exalted houses dedicated to Erathis and involved in the Game of Making. It is here that the goddess chose to bind her seal, working it into the very ground of the main market square. Thousands of merchants and customers make their way across the seal each day, unaware of what lies beneath their feet.
