Shopkeeping is a popular profession. There are two types of shops: denizen shops, most of which are stocked on the first of the month; and adventurer-run shops which depends on the adventurer to restock the wares. To become a shopkeeper one must visit the Delosian Crafters Union located just off Eastern Epitus Avenue, in Delos.
An successful shopkeep early in the Modern Age was the druidess, Portis. A first-generation adventurer of Achaea, Portis (born Mayan 21, 157 AF) constructed the Crystal Leaf Inn with her fellow druid, Buckthorn. She later branched out her business to include shops in both Ashtan and Shallam.
