Trade Contacts

Vornavis

Chief Guildmaster
Childhood friend of Salnim Malwind, the son of Baron Malwind, the Chief Guildmaster of Vornavis is a human named Gabriel Hunter. Highly intelligent and academic, Gabriel has spent most of his adult life serving in some capacity to the merchant guilds of Vornavis. He was appointed to his position as Chief Guildmaster years ago when his predecessor retired. His scholarly ways have helped him to forge headstrong into his role and have lead to growth in all aspects of trade within the Barony of Vornavis.

North Hendor

Grand Craftsman
The Grand Craftsman, Travese Moultrie, resides in North Hendor, but his family originally hails from Phannus in the County of Seareach. He is the youngest of six brothers who once worked for their father's business in Phannus where they ran a trading company helping to move ore and gems from the Dragonspine Mountains, along the edge the Sea of Fire, and to imperial coastal locations. After decades of success, his father's business was nearly ruined overnight when a host of their caravans were laid to waste by Tehiri raiders from the Sea of Fire. In the near total loss of his life's work, Travese's father took his own life, and once the business finally dissolved, the family eventually scattered. Travese found a new home in North Hendor, and used his negotiation skills with his gem and mineral inspection expertise to elevate himself among the guilds, until he found himself promoted to Grand Craftsman of North Hendor, overseeing all aspects of the Earldom's trade. Since Travese's rise into this position six years ago, some of his older brothers have begun to arrive to North Hendor, half of them seeking to work hard, and the others wanting to merely live lavishly without putting forth any efforts.

South Hendor

Controller of Commerce
Chela Thornton is the Controller of Commerce for all of South Hendor. Once a vocal member of the Erudites of Fash'lo'nae in Nydds, her priorities changed in recent years when she was appointed to the position of Controller of Commerce. The position became vacant after tragedy struck the former Controller during the War of Shadows while visiting Lolle in North Hendor on business. Chela Thornton is known to be a wise and sometimes shrewd woman, making her quite influential among the political circles of South Hendor. Her reputation has only grown since being named the head of commerce.

Mestanir

Master of Trade
The Master of Trade, Lord Clarence Nansel, is a wealthy man, ever loyal to the Empire and Mestanir, and proud devout follower of Koar. Both he and his family are heavily involved in the local Church of Koar, lending lend their aid and influence each year to organize pilgrimages to prominent religious landmarks, such as the Crown of Koar mountain range in Mestanir.

Jantalar

Seneschal of Coin

Oliver Bragg, a man with a mind sharper than his blade, served nearly two decades as a janissary of the Jantalarian Army. When the expansion conquest of Jantalar died down, he found himself a better and more suitable home in overseeing the management of Jantalar's finances, resources, and trade. Many like-minded individuals work for him as Coinmasters.
