Mouqol (pronounced moh-KOHL) is the Baklunish god of trade, negotiation, ventures, appraisal, and reciprocity.
During the war between Light and Darkness, the mythical war that forced the Baklunish to migrate across the Tyurzi Mountains to the Baklunish Basin, Mouqol took no side, much like Istus and Geshtai, and sold necessities to both sides.
Though worshipped mainly among the Baklunish, The Merchant has worshippers among the Jann and the Merfolk of the Dramidj Ocean, and bazaars and marketplaces often double as temples to him. Clerics of The Merchant use their powers to detect and prevent deceptions, theft, and fraud, and act as appraisers. They travel at least once as part of merchant caravans.
Reward is not gained without risk. The perfect bargain satisfies both necessity and desire. The wise know the worth of a thing as well as its cost. Greed makes the wealthiest into debtors. All life is a matter of exchange.
