Antiques were not rarely traded in public, they were usually passed through the family or only sold privately when the family needed money.
Now if you deal in objects from the orient, as well as rare books, perhaps herbal remedies or ingredients, there is an idea. I also like the idea about the secret society, and I would like to hear your ideas on that. Right now I’m planning on allowing mortals to have breed leaders, though not for creating families, but through secret societies and organizations. So this is an excellent idea and very in line with what we have plans for. I want mortals to be a viable breed, as much as the others.
