The Trade Lords
The Trade Lords have long sought ways to find wealth, even if it meant wandering into the unknown and that is exactly what the Trade Unions of Ord and Renner did 150 years ago when they first sent ships east and south in search of new lands and peoples. What they found was a land filled with wealth and wonders unknown to the west. For decades now the City States of Ord in the south and Renner in the north have been working together to travel to the distant east and come back with its majestic silks and spices and forging immense profits. All has not been easy however, for their discovery of the east has also revealed the west to the easterners, and in the years since Ord and Renner’s discovery eastern Trade Lords have made settlements in the west, the most famous of which is Nal-Dîn which hopes to bring the west’s gold back east. This new contact with the east has even brought conquerors in the form of the Dalin Imperium, who after learning of the existence of the west has expanded towards the west and has made it as far as the High End Mountains. Renner however with some foreign support has kept the forces of Dalin trapped in the mountains, but should Dalin forces press through it would take all the might of Bythos and the Marchers combined to drive them back.
