Palanthas – Talks broke down last week when the Palanthas Merchants Guild discussed the entry of the Teyr Trading Company into the guild. Though the meeting did not come to blows, thanks largely to the presence of the coinswords of Shinare, tensions were high.

“I knew we faced a challenge going into thisss. They think we are sssome sssort of barbariansss, animalsss who barely can ssspeak. We are ssso much more,” Teyr Trading Company representative Krith said.

Shinare cleric and meeting arbitrator Barish Demal commented further. “The meeting was beginning to get out of hand, so we called a recess for a week. We advised both sides that they needed to remain civil.”

Despite warnings, there is still opposition. “I’ll be damned if I let one of those lizards into the guild,” an anonymous guild official said. “It’s going to destroy the entire Palanthas economy!”

The meetings between the guild and the Teyr Trading company continue this week. “Our suggestion to the Teyr Trading Company is to present examples of their wares,” Barish Demal says. “I’m very curious to see what they come up with.”

    I guess it must have fallen into my pack, Fizban. That’s it! See, my pack was sitting under that table. Wasn’t that lucky? It would have broken if it had hit the floor.
