The circular rock wall of Pindrop becomes dwarfed by the bubbles surrounding its only visible entrance.
Dozens of bubbles of all sizes surround Pindrop's entrance: tiny bubbles, small bubbles, medium, large, and even huge-sized bubbles. Bubbles small enough to only accommodate a few sprites at a time, or a good congregation of Gathlain in the largest ones.
Inside of the bubbles, colourful market stalls and their owners go from one bubble to the next in a busy to-and-fro.
The History of Pindrop's External Market
Pindrop's eternal silence works well for mimihs
and other creatures that have telekinetic abilities. However, other creatures often feel inadequate in their language, limited to sign-language. And thus, they expose themselves to the horrible noise of the eternal crying widow.
Thanks to the realm's shaping abilities, stall owners create bubbles that drown the majority of the crying sounds and allow for shouting, banter, chatter, gossiping, and every other interaction that normally goes around in markets.
Trading in The Burst
Bubbles are kept open in large part thanks to their owner's shaping abilities. Many traders do not have such a firm grasp on shaping the reality of The Bright, and as such, their bubbles may explode if they do not keep at least some concentration on their existence.
Often times, a bubble will burst as a merchant closes a deal, inundating their customers with the sounds of the weeping widow coming from Pindrop. While this is a bit of a laughing matter for a lot of the merchants, it has become a bit of a custom to let one's bubble explode after a really good deal. Often, this is done by experienced traders who have enough reputation so that everyone knows it was not an accident. However, it is difficult to know who does it really on accident and who does not.
That new kid... Their bubble explodes every day exactly after their third sale. I do not think this is an accident, Lewdil!
No matter at what time one goes to the market in The Burst, there are bubbles and merchants in there.
