Nevertheless Jay was hopeful that constructive results would ensue from seemingly negative circumstances. To Lafayette he adopted a cheerful tone in reporting the growing resentment among American merchants of European restraints on American trade: \"Good will come out of evil; these discontents nourish federal ideas,\" Jay remarked.Jay to Lafayette, July 15, 1785, 5742, 2416] Even the Algerine episode was viewed optimistically. That conflict, he wrote President of Congress Richard Henry Lee, \"does not strike me as a great evil. The more we are ill-treated abroad the more we shall unite and consolidate at home.\" Jay, as a strong advocate of preparedness, conceived of a war with the Barbary pirates as providing \"a nursery for seamen\" and laying \"the foundation for a respectable Navy.\" Jay to the President of Congress (Richard Henry Lee), October 13, 1785, 157, 5152]
Nominees for New York City's delegates were not limited to the two opposing blocs, but were initiated informally and in response to a groundswell of recognition of the quality of the Federalist leadership, notably of Jay. As early as 20 February 1788, Jay's name appeared on a list of candidates offered to \"Friends and fellow citizens.\" After proposing Jay's name, the writer asserted: \"From his long services abroad and at home, and the nature of his present office as minister of foreign affairs, [he] must [be] supposed to possess the best information of any man in the United States, on our relative situation with foreign nations.\" Within a few weeks \"An Independent Elector\" and \"A Citizen\" included Jay on their proposed slates. A more formal \"Federal Ticket\" for New York City and County was proposed on 9 April on behalf of \"a number of your fellow citizens\" by Thomas Randall, prominent New York merchant and ex-Tory. Others rushed to join in endorsement, including groups styling themselves \"mechanics and tradesmen,\" \"a very numerous meeting of Germans, inhabitants of the city,\" \"A Citizen and friend of GOOD ORDER,\" \"a number of your Customers,\" and a long nominating article including the name of Jay appeared in the press on 22 April.
\"The prison was a terrible, miserable place. I saw my relatives being tortured. One time, they buried my uncle in the sand up to his neck and left him in the heat. It was awful to watch. But the worst day was when they came for my father. Even then, I knew I would never see him again. I could feel it.\"-- Khairiya Hatim, Iraqi town councilor who was imprisoned with her family because of their allegiance to a banned opposition party, Sunday Telegraph (London), September 28, 2003 \"When Saddam Hussein's government went on an anti-inflation tear in 1992, it rounded up, tried and executed 42 food merchants in one day, including Tabra's father, the wealthy patriarch of a well-known trading family. 'Whenever there was a merchant, a famous name in any sector, the old regime tried to stop them,' Omar Tabra [Iraqi food merchant] said. 'They did it by killing.'\"-- Bill Glauber, Chicago Tribune, September 27, 2003\"Most afternoons, among the market stalls leading to the old city of Najaf young men set up TV sets in the street showing grotesque scenes of cruelty. Handcuffed prisoners are executed with sticks of dynamite shoved into their pockets. Screaming men plead for their lives as they are beaten by Saddam Hussein's secret police. Crimson fragments of bodies lie in the street, moments after a huge explosion, to the soundtrack of an Arab lament. The crowds gather round. People mutter and shake their heads. Then they queue to pay 1,000 Iraqi dinars (about 33p) [50 cents] for laser discs containing footage of the appalling scenes. These are the atrocity discs of Iraq, a booming mini-industry in a country still stricken by the consequences of the war. They are produced in home factories, with the simplest computer equipment.\"-- The London Times, September 20, 2003
And that future was, indeed, bright. Just five years after the New Orleans arrived in its city, 17 steamboats ran regular upriver lines. By the mid-1840s, more than 700 steamboats did the same. In 1860, the port of New Orleans received and unloaded 3,500 steamboats, all focused entirely on internal trade. These boats carried around 160,000 tons of raw product that merchants, traders, and agents converted into nearly $220 million in trade, all in a single year.23 More than 80 percent of the yield was from cotton alone, the product of the same fields tilled, expanded, and sold over the preceding three decades. Only now, in the 1840s and 1850s, could those fields, plantations, and farms simply load their products onto a boat and wait for the profit, credit, or supplies to return from downriver.
Among the more important aspects of southern urbanization was the development of a middle class in the urban centers, something that never fully developed in the more rural areas. In a very general sense, the rural South fell under a two-class system in which a landowning elite controlled the politics and most of the capital, and a working poor survived on subsistence farming or basic, unskilled labor funded by the elite. The development of large urban centers founded on trade, and flush with transient populations of sailors, merchants, and travelers, gave rise to a large, highly developed middle class in the South. Predicated on the idea of separation from those above and below them, middle-class men and women in the South thrived in the active, feverish rush of port city life.
However, despite all appearances to the contrary, many other forces continued to hold a great deal of power in the country, despite the efforts of the Council to contain them. Directly beneath the Council in power were the head merchant families, who often wielded considerable political power as it is from among their ranks from which new council members were elected. While families who didn't have a member on the council had little direct governmental power, their influence and authority among the town or cities in which they resided was still considerable. In any given city of Amn there were between ten and thirty heavily influential families, with Athkatla having forty-two families that controlled the nation's trading houses.
Status could be measured in terms of the location of a person's property, although not so much importance was placed on the amount of land owned. Athkatla was the most coveted of places for a residence, and the Gem District was the best area in the city. As a merchant family rose in status, it was expected to acquire more than one property, and estates around Lake Esmel were the finest of these.
NPCs are non-player characters. They can provide quests, sell items. Some even give you back story and lore. NPCs consist of guards, merchants, and villagers living in villages according to their race. These NPCs are procedurally generated, though their armor and behavior will adhere to their setting. Non-merchant non-hostile NPCs can often be hired as ship Crew if the Player completes enough quests for them.
Unlike the last area, there are a few plots here that Serenoa can pursue to gain as much information as possible about the illicit salt trade between Hyzante and Aesfost. Be sure to speak to everyone and take notes of who knows what! There's a merchant here but he won't sell you anything. However, he will come in use a bit later. Beside the merchant is a Sleep Recovery Pellet x2 on the ground. On the opposite side of the walk, there is an NPC with a green turban on who will tell you of a strange woman who knows a lot of rumors about the city.
The Hyzantian Soldier above her asks that you write a formal letter to Minister Exharme if you have any business with him. Do you remember the merchant standing in the entrance of the city Speak to him and he will provide you with pen and paper to write a letter to Minister Exharme. Once the letter is written, take it to the Hyzantian Soldier who will deliver the letter.
Below the guards standing outside The Source is a home with another Hyzantian Soldier standing outside who talks about a Rebel they've been pursuing but have lost sight of. If you can convince the guard to move, the \"rebel\" will return to his home and provide Serenoa with more information. Respond to the guard with \"I did see someone rather suspicious leaving the city.\" and the guard will run off. Now go speak to the Rebel in blue that you spoke to earlier and he will return to this home and provide information about the House Ende's encampment where there is sure to be hidden proof somewhere but you can ignore that for now.
Abadar strives to maintain agreeable relationships with the other deities, recognizing their influence is conducive to the further advancement of civilized life. In particular, he cultivates alliances with Iomedae, Irori, Shelyn, Asmodeus, Brigh, Shizuru, Torag, and Erastil, though differences in opinion often result in conflicts between Abadar and Old Deadeye. Gozreh often opposes Abadar's actions, though the Judge of the Gods only recognizes Rovagug and Lamashtu as true enemies. Abadar is sometimes seen as a paternal authority figure, especially to others possessing origins in Taldor. Because he is the patron god of merchants, Abadar is often associated with the philosophy known as the Prophecies of Kalistrade. The god Aroden respected Abadar and consulted Abadar's The Manual of City-Building to aid in his establishment of the country of Taldor and of the city-state of Absalom. Abadar once opened channels to the archdevil Mephistopheles to cement an alliance based on the archdevil's interest in contracts but these negotiations failed.
