Most of the coins minted in Asheran and used throughout the Empire are stamped with the face of one of the great Emperors of Asheran's past. All, that is, except for the copper coin. The most common coin in the land bears the face of Jaan Martos, founder of the East Asheran Trading Company, and the greatest trader in the history of Alaganon. His legacy lives on today in his descendants.
The Martos Family are the greatest artisans and traders in the Empire, known not only for their abilities to craft goods of the finest quality, but also for their ability to acquire rare and magnificent items from around the globe. It is said that if there is something you need, there is a member of the Martos family that sells it.
