Triad Traders


No trio, except maybe for Black Oak and Deepminded. and The Pilgrim managed to influence The Realm more than these three, in good and in bad.”

No one would ever have believed a lesser prince, a craftsman’s son, or a tailor’s lad in their own lifetime would be as rich as the High King. But that is in fact what these three determined men managed: a natural-born talent for taking action at the right time, nerves of steel and determination as few, and always paying their dues and settling disputes as soon as they arose.

It must be said, though, that their rise falls in line with several other events shaping the world and guiding the flow of wealth. For example, they played a double role regarding the High King as they helped establish the title so that their trade could prosper. But they also used their positions, resources, and worker- and transportation force to distribute herbs, spices, and other goods banned by the High King and the Council of Colours.

Some claim Black Oak knew this all along but didn’t act upon the lawbreakers, as they were among his core supporters. No Skjald has found any records of him admitting to this.

The Triad Traders are normally thought of as the three founders, but within a few years of their first real interaction as a group looking after themselves, they made close bonds with, for example, Longhorn. In return for the usage of their network, cheap Kinoblin and illegal goods, he supplied them with cheap meat from his gargantuan herds of cows, oxen, horses, and what else? He told me, as we cleaned out some Invader, that he now thinks some of this went as supplies for the hidden nests of Invader. Had he known of their existence, he would have cut ties with the trio, but it’s easy to be clever in hindsight.

The Organisation is still, despite the crumbling of The Realm, still functioning, immensly wealthy, and plotting to get back in force.
