The Times Are Nightfall
Star pilots and merchants marine, this intrepid Guild is what most people think of when they imagine The Merchant League, for it is the Charioteer merchants with their exotic, traveling medicine shows who are most often seen by the commoners. They own the star lanes – literally. Without their secret jumpcode technology, travel through jumpgates would be impossible. In addition, the best pilots come from this Guild.
Jumpkeys are owned by individual Charioteers or by powerful Charioteer families called hongs (the most powerful of whom are the De Vathas), who disburse them as needed or to show favor (the Church and the nobles may also own jumpkeys, but in theory they’re not supposed to. In theory). The Charioteers are extremely proprietary about the jumpkeys, and their secret service, The Killroys, tends to come down on unauthorized owners quite heavily.
PC Cheung Dingane Magellan is a member of this Guild.
