Black Lotus Black Market Event: now open to outside vendors


Recommended Posts



Rumour has spread in the streets of Mor Dhona of the return of the Black Lotus, a crime syndicate known throughout Othard. The Doman merchants spin tales of this clandestine organisation that existed in Othard for countless ages, working in the underbelly of organised crime, providing services to whoever would provide the highest price. Extortion, money laundering, smuggling, assassination and black market trading are amongst the list of services the Black Lotus provided to the public. The Black Lotus will do almost anything criminal for the right price.  



Due to ongoing interest, The Black Lotus is having its first open trade Black Market. Vendors who trade in more “illegal” items are encouraged to attend this event and hawk their wares.  Unlike our previous markets, this event will be taking part in an open world location, in Central Thanalan. This event is spread via word of mouth within criminal circles. The advertisement is ooc.




Where: Central Thanalan, The Caves outside of Lost Hope, Pos 27, 14. Balmung server.

When: Saturday the 4th of February, 2017 8 p.m EST til Midnight.



The Black Market will have six slots for individual traders or free companies to come and hawk their wares.
