Pagus Nonad is a Loyalist vendor who also has a small quest (ask him about his "brother" to get the quest).
From the patch notes on February 9, 2011:
A New Face in the Neighborhood
An uneasy tension fills the morning air of Sunrise Hills. Garik, the recipient of five consecutive losses at Orcakar glares around the room irreverently before speaking, 'I don't much care for their kind waltzing into our home and bandying about their authority like they do...'
Darix, the cynical antagonist, smiles, 'You sound worried, little man. You should keep your focus on the game at hand. He's not a concern to us; let him wander about crafting his knickknacks and going on about his brother...'
Ragthar slams a small Orc figurine down on to the table and lets loose a roaring laugh, 'Me win again!' The surrounding trio sighs. Perhaps a new face in the neighborhood will introduce a bit of luck in their efforts to best the Ogre savant..."
If you hail Pagus...
You say, 'Hail, Pagus Nonad'
Pagus Nonad pauses and pulls out a small roll of parchment, 'Torrin is it? ... Well, it would appear that your dues are in order. Have you come to inspect the goods I have available? Feel free to ask me about my [shield] or my [weapon], both are available from the Tax Authority's [market].
You say, 'What shield?'
Pagus Nonad says 'The ornament that looks like this is Guard of the Ocean Ornament.'
You say, 'What weapon?'
Pagus Nonad says 'The ornament that looks like this is Scrindite's Rocket Fist Ornament.'
You say, 'What about the market?'
Pagus Nonad says 'Aye the Authority has a market, taxing alone doesn't fulfill the investment requirements to keep new Tanaan in working order. What with militia costs, portal fees, armaments and the upkeep of our ever-growing library... So feel free to [browse] the wares I have available. Be on the watch for sales, the Authority has a vested interest in improving your holiday experience!'
You say, 'I'd like to browse the wares'
Pagus Nonad says 'Very good, these are the currently available items...'
At this point he opens up a Marketplace Window for you to purchase items.
