Oh. Also that, yes. I'd say to start up a big game of Wicked Grace, but there are surely people stranded here who don't gamble (or drink, which always inevitably happens during Wicked Grace). I saw a common area big enough for a sizable gathering. Do you have any ideas off the top of your head?
A merchant, then? That's a respectable profession. Riskier than it has any right to be, if it's as dangerous for you as it is back home.
