Yup. But at the same time, I would like to point out there are no rules in the challenges. If Remyth says it is "Trade and Commerce" then it is. ;)

Well well, my first MOC for a contest. Here is my creation, but first, a backstory I made up for it.
It was a fine afternoon, and the captain of the guard was having his men undergo rigorous training exercises. Suddenly, a young woman runs up to him. "Sir, there is chaos in the streets, as a young man is running around destroying property---"
"Don't worry, mam. We'll handle it." A guard rushed up to him-"Sir, one of our horses is missing. Another person reported seeing a young boy take the horse earlier this morning" "Do we know the identity of this young chap?" the captain replied. "Umm...his name is...Henry." The captain shouted: "HENRY!?! I thought I told you never to mention his name again!" The guard replied: "But sir, you---" "I don't care what I said! You three, capture that young man! This is the third time this week..."
The name of this creation: Midieval Market Mayhem. A boy goes on a rampage throughout the city on a knight's horse, while knocking over barrels of water and other objects.
ImageThe guards chasing the boy on the horse.
ImageThe local postman being knocked over.
Image The local baker making Galette flatbread. (An earlier version of the pizza; it was a dish for the lower class/poorer people.)
ImageThe local fortune teller: "You are about to be run over by a boy on a horse...But you already knew that, didn't you?"
ImageA bystander and the town drunkard (in stocks) watching the events unfold.
(After the boy is captured) Captain: "Boy, do you know how much trouble you have caused us? You have stolen a horse, destroyed people's property, and have made a mess of our beautiful city. I want you to go back to each and every one of those vendors and apologize. Do you understand?" Kid: "Yes dad."

He who thinks you should look at the box that says "Quaraga" if you want to find out his username (about as useful to you as his real name). he only wants you to look so he can laugh about you looking there because he's a total smart...

Sure. The reason for smuggling is to get around some sort of commerce regulation.

The market is great! Very busy. I like the idea of the shopping cart.
