Known for its production of fine jewelry and mechanical devices, some believed Zelpir's products rivaled those of the Lantannan Gondsmen. Water clocks, mechanical toys, and field glasses were just a few of the wonders that could be purchased here.
Though it only possessed a population of 8,000 inhabitants, Zelpir was growing quickly. However, the merchants were cautious about who they allowed to start a business within their city. All new businesses needed to be licensed and approved by the city council.
