Planar Trade Consortium
The Planar Trade Consortium, often referred to by its acronym the PTC, is the multiverse's largest and most influential trade and commerce regulatory body. They oversee all of the means of transporting goods including portals, shipping routes and caravan companies. Membership in the organization is virtually mandatory for anyone but the smallest of street peddlers. In fact, the only trader of any note who is not a member of the PTC is the renegade arms dealer Koe. Apart from this exception, the PTC holds a monopoly on the trade of most every product of value. The Trade Consortium consists primarily of large trading families such as the Mezzio Family and the Giordanni Family but also holds more informal organizations like the Iron Ring and many enterprising individuals among its members.
