The Main Field of Starwood is boundaried by trees and forest. Merchants are welcome to camp at their shop or have their shop by their camp. The Merchant's Row area has three roads (running approx. north-south) starting from the Food Court to the Bonfire Area, along which you may set-up your stand/camp. Merchants camping with their shop on Merchant's Row should be considerate of space and boundaries.
