The lifeblood of the land, trade ties together lands and peoples who might otherwise meet only as enemies – or not at all, depending on the distance between them. The Dwarves trade their matchless arms and armor for vast quantities of grain, beef, ale, and other foodstuffs hard to come by in their forbidding mountains. Elven woodcarvings fetch handsome prices in the most expensive stores, while bolts of good linen are carried as far south as Farfara.
Trade roads, trails, and sea routes bring the goods and materials of distant lands to civilized folk. Most regions produce their own staple items such as basic foodstuffs and clothing, but even the most mundane commodity can be produced cheaper and faster in some lands than others.
Thanks to the Covenants of Kymmenen (and the backing of the Gnomes) a standard currency graces the land. Platinum, gold, silver, and copper are the accepted currency across all the lands. Much wealth is handled in the form of cost of goods, as opposed to loose coin. Barter and a trade of goods or services is also widely accepted as forms of payment.
