Hope you get discord and you would be most welcome.
The trading town is clan, so all the merchants can be together. There is no limits but I suggest you design a character selling something that others are not.
We have around 10-15 players on per night. Like most servers, this goes up and down. We also cover so many time zones, which helps spread the load.
Clans are maxed at 6, as there nothing worse then joining a server that is full of just one clan. This creates more balance. You can play solo or join a current one. There is no land claiming, so build as you please. Everything RP, so if they want to claim, they must RP they own it, not server rules.
Very friendly server, so dont worry about being bullied around. It not happen, unless you upset an evil clan.
Hope that answers all questions?
