The Agora

Though the nature of the Grand Stair is that it practically defies permanent or long-term residences, nonetheless a market has formed, informally known as the Agora. It is located within a section of the Grand Stair where a series of parallel halls, and high and wide sections allow for a sprawling “outdoor” style market. It is multi-leveled, with the Grand Stair folding back and over, with balconies overlooking sections of the Agora, and stretches of halls that intersect with wide foyers, vestibules, and wide landings allowing for structures to be erected. The marketplace consists of tents of all shape and size, lean-tos, blankets, stalls, stands, and even some smaller huts all of which were brought in by the resourceful merchants and traders throughout the Gossamer worlds. They deal in all manner of goods and riches from the infinite worlds, or curiosities unique to a single place and time. The Gossamer Lords tolerate the place and maintain it as a neutral ground, and if the Grand Stair has any feelings on the Agora’s existence, it remains as silent as ever. Here, it is said, “Anything can be found, and if it cannot, it is but a Door away.”
