Vagol is an information based economy. Knowledge and secrets are the primary source of economic revenue. While a merchant is more than happy to sell you a magic wand, it is well known that you are really the product being sold to a much higher bidder. All magic items are tracked. Information such as location, when it is used, etc. is the real item of value. Naturally, a black market of, “breakers” has developed. They will be more than happy to remove or recast the the tracking device on an item, for a price of course. But you will get what you pay for. Some are more than happy to help you out at a steal, but you may just be sending your information to another organization. Others may provide you with real security, but it will cost you a lot of gold. If your lucky you’ll find some true believers who won’t charge you, but believe in privacy. Some of these people may be willing to offer you a price break or grant you a favor if you have a secret to share. Afterall, in Vagol information is worth far more than gold.
