Östrade was founded in 496 as the secular alternative to the merchant fleets and warehouses belonging to the Order of Sanct Creopbaina. Although Östrade does not own its own fleets - all services are conducted by privately owned ships - they do own warehouses and rent market stalls throughout the Mercurian Empire. House Accynnafon is estimated to own a 37% controlling stake in Östrade, with various other merchant families owning the rest.

In 541, House Accynnafon purchased the remaining shares in Östrade.

Merchant Companies/Business Name:
The Mercenary's Guild

Purpose:
Provides certification to mercenary groups operating in and out of the GRHH while helping to connect them with potential customers.

Realm of Origin:
The GRHH

Locations:
Petra Nova (Newly moved)

Lore/Misc:
Established by a council of mercenary company leaders, the Guild originally served as a centralized means for potential customers to find the right company for their task and to force smaller, less reputable companies out of competition. Later, with the assistance of Chairman Dax, the Guild expanded its organizational structure and influence. Soon after, it was sanctioned by the legislature of the GRHH, which granted it exclusive power to legally certify mercenary companies and also placed some regulations on the Guild itself to keep it from becoming a tool to monopolize the mercenary market.

Name: Rygarde Trading Company

Purpose: import and export of luxury goods between Old and New Hermertia

Realm of Origin: N/A

Locations: Concordia, Imperial City

Lore/Misc: Founded in 401 A.I. in Concordia to take advantage of increased interest in trade between Old and New Hermertia following the mapping of the Corridorlands. The company grew quickly under the direction of its founder Arden Rygarde, often buying out other fledgling competitors. The company opened a branch in the Imperial City in 451 A.I. in order to expand its access to the burgeoning economies of the southeast. Cooperation with Casadian exporters saw a notable increase after the marriage of heiress Helena Rygarde to future Guardian of Casadia Haedren. The company trades primarily in luxury goods, which has made their vessels appealing targets for pirates. In order to deter pirates, a mercenary group was created by Helena and Haedren’s son, Valen, to protect the company’s fleet of trading ships.

Merchant Companies/Business Name: Northubeorce Céapung Gildscype (NBCG) - Northubeorc Trading Company

Purpose: To export Northubeorc goods such as gold, birch, and beer throughout the empire.

Realm of Origin: Gelderlond, Ostlaed

Locations: Northubeorc, (Acholm)

Lore/Misc: Established in the mid 530s by a group of Northubeorci traders and merchants, the NBCG acts as the primary source of Northubeorc exports goods throughout the Ostsee. The rapid growth of its home port beginning in the late 530s brought rapid growth of the company - more people produce more goods. Currently the Auratavia family owns a 40% stake in the company, but unusually enough they give a quarter of their profits to the town as a whole as a means of promoting growth. Various merchants own the remainder.
