Problems reflecting poorly on the East Blackwood Company

The E.B.Co explained the issue that Leonis had with the original Hanse deal to which Tares laughed stating that that was not what was offered.  In the end it would seem that continued discussions concerning Porto Leonis should take place.

Scriminova Trade Kontor

The Lord Protector of Lunorth met with the East Blackwood Company several times to speak about potential opertunities within Lunorth during the Convent of the Elements, Realms Year 1019.

Porto Leonis and Trade?

Towards the end of the Convent of the Elements in Mythodea, Realms Year 1019, the leader of Porto Leonis approached Dagger of Blackwood about problems he had heard the Ambassador and Trade Leader had with his city The conversation was rather long and it detailed the issues the E.B.Co had with Porto Leonis.  The leader of Porto Leonis explained that the political and trade landscape had changed in Porto Leonis and that such things were no longer as they were when last Dagger spoke with a diplomat or the city.  Dagger presented the E.B.Co’s buisness platform and the two agreed to speak further in five weeks time during the Summer Campaign.

During talks with Feite Münzer and Stordon von Zackenburg, the Realm explained that the river, the Blauer Storm, was in some places not wide or deep enough to support the increased logistics of high volume river trade. The E.B.Co offered their assistance after the Convent of the Elements in the preparation of the river. 

Hanse E.B.Co Deal Part 1

During the War of Ashes in Khal’Hatra, the East Blackwood Company met with Tares O’Grady Windschreiter and invited him to the E.B.Co meeting.  Due to complications with his son’s health, Tares was unable to attend.  However, after speaking with Tares on a few occations during the campaign, it appears that Tares will be joining the East Blackwood Company at the Convent of the Elements.  Likewise, Ambassador Dagger will be fully joining the Hanse.

Künstler-gilde Talks

As was said the prior year, the Fire Dancers would once again be on the Bluthatz. After sending a letter to Xy’kara Duara Alfannanin and not recieving a replay for several months, Dagger set out with the E.B.Co and Embassy to join the Bluthatz were he was able to meet with the Künstler in person.  Discussions were had on the subject of the instruments requested by Dagger and a meeting later in the year will take place during the Summer Campaign.

Meisterin Muriel Contract

During the Terra Tunnel project and Summer Campaign 16 Jahre n.d.E., the E.B.Co worked closely with Meisterin (Master) Murial Brillantherz of the Zottelbärten Clan.  Knowing full well the Master’s skill and knowledge with mining and other projects involving stone, Ambassador Dagger requested her assistance and wrote out a contract for her.  She wishes primarily to be paid in instruments.  This is a leap of faith on her part as Dagger made the agreement without knowing for sure if he could get them.

Pan Mythodean Trade Summit

Once again the Roses’ Master of Coin invited the merchants, trade houses and ministers of finance of Mythodea to a trade meeting at the Realm of Roses Camp.  The E.B.Co being among the invited parties arrived with the Baroness Sayeh of Sapphire Isle.  Raul, the Roses’ Master of Coin, gave a short speech and let the summit begin.  The E.B.Co aproached various traders including Ben Al Habib and managed to move some lumber in exchange for iron while the Baroness met with the Voice of the West.

At the end of the Summit, the great road from Schönweiler to the Western Seal was announced by Raul and Ambassador Dagger called to present it.

Handelshaus Al Habib

During the construction of the Terra Tunnel to the island of the World Forge, the E.B.Co had the chance to speak with Ben al Habib of the Trade House Al Habib about potential trade arrangements. It was the wish of Ben that the conversation continue during the summer campaign 16 Jahre n.d.E.  During this campaign at the Pan Mythodean Trade Summit, the E.B.Co worked with Al Habib in an atempt to push and Iron deal but the Al Habib partner was not prepared to trade away more of its iron.

Terra Tunnel Invoices

After the East Blackwood Company was chosen to lead the above ground contsruction site for the reparing of the Terra Tunnel, Ambassador Dagger of Blackwood, the Leader of the E.B.Co., placed an order for a specialized team of artisans from the M.H.  This team was to be paid by the Trossmeisterei.  Other matters of pay concerning the Terra Tunnel Workers were also discussed and handled.  

Seehandels-gilde Contract

At the Convent of the Elements, The East Blackwood and Realms Embassy made a contract with Seehandelsgilde for the transportation of personel and the converstion of goods to coin at S.H.G Ports.  

Dagger of Blackwood also requested that the Baroness Sayeh of Sapphire Isle be given the chance to join the S.H.G.  The Governor, Frances agreed to the possibility provided Sayeh was the captain of her own ship.  It is the hope of the Embassy that this be made possible during the Summer Campaign at the World Forge Fotress.

Münzquell Trade Relations

Important contacts were made within the Münzquell prior to their judgment by the main religious and secular rulers of Mythodea.  The people of Münzqeull have been reportedly told to convert, leave this city or die.  Until this matter can be resolved, all potential E.B. Co. deals with the Münzquell will be put on hold.  

During the Realm of Roses Trade Summit, Hjord, a Mead Trader and Trade Representative of the Münzquell, spoke for Dagger of Blackwood commending his abilities and presenting him as a preferred option for the role of above-ground construction on the Terra Tunnel to the World Forge. If the E.B. Co. can aid the merchants of Münzquell in any way, they will attempt to do so as they did when they facilitated a meeting between Hjord and the Kutscher Gilde.

S.H.G Contract

Bo Angusson Omnimagus Markgraf von Sternenquell Graf der Thingstedde Reichsritter zu Serria Captian der Seehandelsgilde met with Ambassador Dagger at a remote island village when their ships became stranded during a storm for a few days. Together, the two struck a deal of trade and navigator support which will allow for a stable connection between the Realms of Valehaven and Mythodea.

Three times a year, there will be a chance to bring in new settlers or send old settlers back through the Fog. Throughout the year, letters can be brought to S.H.G. ports outside of the Mythodean region where they will be taken and delivered to and from the Embassy. Goods will also be exchanged as S.H.G. ports for Mythodea and Easterly coin at an agreed rate.

E.B. Co.

The East Blackwood Company is a business idea of Ambassador Dagger of Blackwood. The idea is to purchase, or have made, a small fleet of river ships for transporting cargo up and down river within the Realm of Roses. So far, there have been a few leads as to how this could be achieved. With all likelihood, progress will first be made at the Convent of the Elements later this spring. 

S.H.G. Delivery and Captain Sayeh

Ambassador Dagger escorted the Baroness, and Captain, Sayeh of Sapphire Isle to the camp of the S.H.G. in the Tross at the Summer Campaign 16 Jahre n.d.E.  There, Sayeh delivered a trademark detailing the delivered goods resting at Porto Armatio.  Once the delivery was made, the group of the Baroness, the Ambassador and the Vice Governor discussed the potential of the baroness joining the S.H.G. After the Captains are spoken with it is expected that Sayeh will be sworn in at the Convent of the Elements next year.

The Kutscher has proven to be a valuable ally and business partner.  As a gift to the E.B.Co., the leader of the Kutscher, Sir William, has agreed to pay for and build/remodel the E.B.Co.’s new district within Copperdale based on the designs of Don Anthem DeVigil.

Contract with Mitrasper-anische Hanse

In order to function as a logistics company without creating conflicts with the already established trade guilds of Mythodea,  Dagger approached Taras O’Grady of the Mitrasperanische Hanse to discuss Dagger of Blackwood’s business concept and gain the trust and permission of the Hanse.  Through the discussion, a contract was signed where the E.B.Co.  would operate for one year and one day as a daughter company of the M.H. In doing so, the E.B.Co. would be granted assistance in logistical building operations, would lend ships as needed and would be provided with contracting assistance.  

Schönweiler Acquisition Requests

Relations with Baron Fiete Münzer of Schönweiler within the Realm of Roses continued at the Convent of the Elements (2018).  An hour was found were Ambassador Dagger and Baron Fiete shared a bottle of wine while discussing matters of trade.  Feite explained that Schönweiler's river trade was performed via horse-drawn river boats through a series of way stations.  Dagger has requested to purchase portions of the ships, horses and the Way Stations on behalf of the East Blackwood Company.  Dagger awaits confirmation from Baron Fiete as Fiete must speak with the Court of Thornes and Roses before such a privatization can be made. 

Trade Wishes

During the Winterwacht festival, Féwaé Méllinar Vitèz the Master of Coin of the Münzquell and Baron Dagger of East Blackwood held preliminary discussions on a possible future trade deal with Validar.  The deal could involve trade between Féwaé and Duchess Vanadis of Validar if successful.

Pan Mythodean Trade Summit

The Pan Mythodean Trade Summit was hosted once again in Bad Holzbrück's area during this year's Convent of the Elements.  This trade summit was one of the largest every with many merchants from around Mythodea hosting a large bazaar for resources and various products such as the "Beer of the People" by the Drei Ponies Brauhaus.  The merchants of Validar, Master Djako of the East Blackwood Company and Kazabrah of Gorasia, used the conference to gain resources toward the war effort in Kahl'hatra and were very successful.

Diplomatic Trouble, the  Hanse Convention, and New Members

Due to an diplomatic issue with the Western Seal, the Hanse requested that Lord Dagger of East Blackwood be temporarily removed of his Hanse membership.  Lord Dagger, while somewhat reluctant, agreed to the request and took down the Hanse banner in the Validar camp that day. Less 10 hours later, Lord Dagger was reinstated as a full member of the Hanse after the issue with the Western Seal was resolved.

After being reinstated as a full Hanse member, Lord Dagger of East Blackwood attended the Hanse Convention at the Convent of the Elements R.C.Y. 1023.  There over 12 points were discussed and voted on allowing for the rebuilding of the Hanse Trade Organization.

Following the delivery and further trade discussions, Beria de Eline offered the use of his ship to Féwaé Méllinar Vitèz the Master of Coin of the Münzquell.

Special Agreement with the Sterndeuter Newspaper

A deal was struck after long negotiations between a merchant working for the Western Seal Newspaper and Sir Dagger of Blackwood.  Due to the agreed payment, Sir Dagger is owed any article from the store of the merchant and will owe, upon completion of his side of the bargin, a special article within the newspaper with a prominent position.

Perliminary Trade Dicussions with Friends of Zweiwasser

The E.B.Co spoke with Capitina Salkya Fedora ya Camargo-Berlinghan and Count Khadan Berlinghan about trading through the Fog to and from their homeland.  The ideas presented by Sir Dagger and Bødvar Tock will be carried back with them on their return trip for futher discussion with their crown.

Wulf von Plundenstein and the Calipha of the Free Alliance and the Wayfarer's arrival met with Sir Dagger of Blackwood during the Siege of Ankor Mortis to discuss edits that needed to be made to the contracts that were recently signed between the Free Alliance and the East Blackwood Company. Due to internal issues within the Free Alliance, Admiral August Roth needed to be removed from the contracts and replaced with Wulf von Plundenstien. Sir Dagger agreed to, and made the, necessary changes to the contracts between both parties.

After, the Free Alliance came to an agreement with the East Blackwood Company to sell Blackwood Oak for Wheat.

S.H.G Meeting

Captain Sayeh along with Master Gideon Klaud attended an Seehandelsgilde meeting. There the S.H.G discussed matters of trade and the reorganization of common trade agreements.

Trouble with the Kettles

As rumor has it, an elf who goes by the name "The Duke" reportedly attempted to steal the drug trade from the Kettle family. We are still trying to get to truth on the matter but there is reason to believe that the Kettle family is not happy with the East Blackwood Company, or at the very least, The Duke after the Summer Siege of Ankor Motris.

Kütschergilde Debt

The Kütschergilde had invested a great deal of money into the establishment and development of the East Blackwood Company over the years since its beginnings some four years prior.  The E.B.Co had, until this year's Convent, neglected to pay a return on those investments.  That changed this year when the Guild marched through the Southern Seal camp and to the East Blackwood camp to collect.  Sir Dagger of Blackwood paid them in full view of the Southern Seal and the Kütschergilde went away but this had the effect that the E.B.Co image was tarnished in the eyes of some Southerners.

Expanding District

During the Convent of the Elements 1 N.d.K, E.B.Co sat down with the Governess of Copperdale to discuss expanding the East Blackwood Company Guild District either up or into other areas of the city. The decision was made to expand the district but keep the original as well.  This means that the new district is located in a different part of the city but is still considered part of the first. It is expected that a tavern will be built there.

Trade Kontor Talks

During this year's Convent (1 N.d.K), The Iron Daggers approached East Blackwood and offered the opportunity for a closer diplomatic and trade relationship in the future. The E.B.Co suggested this come in the form of a Trade Kontor should they earn land of their own within the Northern Seal.

Copperdale Taxes and Fees

Three years ago, the E.B.Co moved a very large shipment of weapons and armor to the nearest safe harbor which required a large number of guards to protect it.  At that time, the East Blackwood Company's resources were far more limited than they are now.  Sir Dagger moved guards posted in the East Blackwood Company Guild District at Copperdale to the Eastern Seal to protect the shipment.  This left reduced security in the district for one month.

The E.B.Co and the City of Copperdale in Lunorth came to a settlement at the Convent of the Elements 1 N.d.K.  A portion of the debt was payed up front while the remaining bulk of the debt the E.B.Co was allowed to keep to repair damages caused by the Great Calamity and the falling of the Academy tower.

Mitrasperanische Hanse Reform

Tares O'Grady Windschreiter, the leader of the Mitrasperanische Hanse, has been reported missing for the past two years.  With no reports on his whereabouts, Hanse members were forced to act.  Connor MacAnwynhas taken over the leadership of the Hanse temporarily.  He plans to work toward reform in the near future while leaving members to continue business as usual.  The first matter of business is consolidating Hanse holdings after the Great Calamity.  Sir Dagger of Blackwood will take over operations in Ad Astra.

Deals for Blackwood Lumber and Kaevh Iron

Trade deals to sell both Blackwood Lumber and Kaevh Iron were worked between Master Djako of the East Blackwood Company and merchants from the Western Seal.  Details of such deals are yet to be released.

Trade Conflict with the Western Seal

The Voice of the West was reported to having applied pressure against a trade deal that was facilitated by the East Blackwood Company.  The trade deal, however, was signed by Nova Bretonia and not by the East Blackwood Company and it concerned the sale of horses for meat within the Western Fief of Nova Bretonia.  The deal was concluded, however, and the meat was sold and delivered.  The East Blackwood Company did its best to clear its name of wrong doing in connection with the trade deal, of which, their involvement was limited to finding a seller of meat and facilitating that a deal be made.

Evolution in the East Blackwood Company

As times change so do Merchant Houses such as the East Blackwood Company. Originally starting as a trade origination focused on river trade, the E.B.Co has since evolved into joining the old guard of Merchant house and providing trade services across a wide and ever broadening area of mercantile work. Time will tell if the E.B.Co has reached too far or if the work they are doing has set them on the right path.

Shattenpakt Trade Relations

Trade relations with the Shattenpakt began the previous year during an expedition South of the great Ice Wall.  Since then "The Duke" has been on regular contact with them and has worked to further that trade relation.

Further Discussions and Updates On Ongoing Trade Deals

At an impromtu gathering, Sir Dagger and Master Djako continued discussions and work concerning two ongoing trade deals with various members of the Iron Daggers.  Progress was made and the parties concerned were updated on the two tasks.

Trade Discussions with Nova Bretonia

After a mission to assist Nova Bretonia in Crotin-sous-Pont en Goesel, Sir Dagger sat down with leading officials form the lands of Nova Bretonia to discuss food assistance for their people.

Contract Suggestion and Trade Discussions

During a mission to Nova Bretonia, Ambassador Dagger offered that the East Blackwood Company build an animal shelter for the Lady Chloé at a special prices for friends of the E.B.Co. The offer was made to Lady Azela the betrothed of the Voice of the West.

Payment offer to the Iron Daggers

Ambassador Dagger, after granting Ceallach of the O'Annid residence rights for the E.B.Co guild district in Copperdale, requested that Cea deliver a letter to Doctor Forbonte who was East Blackwood's contact in Lunorth.  Cae delivered the letter, a payment offer, directly to the Iron Dagger's instead after informing the doctor that the letter was there.

Iron Daggers Aid and Offer

The Iron Daggers who had come to know the East Blackwood Company during the summer campaign of 17 J.n.d.E and were offered a contract to clean up the E.B.Co’s Copperdale district.  They did so and took the liberty of expanding the E.B.Co’s district.  To that end they have requested a different deal than the one previously agreed upon. 

Kutscher Investment

The Kutschergilde has agreed to invest up to 80% of the costs required to build the Salty Stick Tavern just south of Drachenbrück Zweiwasser.

River Trade

The East Blackwood Company continues to attempt to improve their trade incomes on the Blauersturm River within the Realm of Roses.  Dagger met with a merchant from Schönweiler to speak about trade possibilities. The E.B.Co also spoke with the Jarnsfolk from further up the river in Zweiwasser about furthering their trade relationship.  An agreement was made concerning support for the Salty Stick Tavern which is being constructed on the Black Pier just south of Drachenbruch, Zweiwasser.

Trade Kontor Asina

During the Summer Campaign, in the Realms Year 1019, the East Blackwood Company and Mitrasperanische Hanse discussed the future of the E.B.Co in Aisina. With the Hanse holding the main-trade contract, the E.B.Co was still interested in finding a way to expand their business into Asina.  Tares offered the idea of the E.B.Co being able to open a Trade Kontor in the city.  The official request will be written at a later date. 

Black Pier Construction

During the Convent of the Elements, Realms Year 1019, the E.B.Co discussed the opening of a tavern on the Black Pier, land that was granted the Company by Margrave Balor the Red of Zweiwasser.  Once the concept was cleared, Marik of the Embassy Guard was named as harbormaster but only after the renovation of the Pier and the construction of the tavern. The idea was presented to Biricus of Zweiwasser and later to the margrave himself.  All parties agreed, the E.B.Co must now only to draw up building plans and present the method of founding.

Hanse and East Blackwood Company

During the Convent of the Elements, Realms Year 1019, dealings between the Hanse and the East Blackwood Company continued culminating in the drawing, signing and sealing of a contract between the two company leaders.  Dagger of Blackwood is now a member of the Hanse and Tares O’Grady Windschreiter of the East Blackwood Company.

Sayeh of the E.B.Co Joins the S.H.G

During the Convent of the Elements, Realms Year 1019, Sayeh of Sapphire Isle was presented to the Seehandelsgilde. To assist with the proceedings, Ambassador Dagger presented Sayeh with a model of her ship a few days prior. The Governor, Frances of the S.H.G, sat down with Sayeh and Djako of the East Blackwood Company to discuss terms of membership.  At the conclusion of the discussions, Sayeh was admitted with the stipulation that she fill out her crew more.

River Trade in Schönweiler

The E.B.Co briefly met with Baron Fiete Münzer at the War of Ashes Campaign to Khal'hatra to discuss the river trade deal.  Currently, the situation suggests that word from the Realm of Roses Master of Coin is needed to continue business further. Conversations with Stordon von Zackenburg later explained why. 

Trade Embargo

The E.B.Co recently visited Goldwacht für the Münzfest.  There Dagger met with the city's trade minister Féwaé Méllinar Vitèz who informed the E.B.Co that Goldwacht was now under a near-complete trade embargo.  This effectively could force the people of the Münzquell into a quick decline should it persist for too long.  Further discussions on what could be done about the embargo took place, however, all possibilities seemed bleak at best.  Once the regent is informed of the conversations there will be more information on the state of trade affairs within the city.  Any assistance the E.B.Co could lend will only be done if the E.B.Co does not ruin its reputation in doing so.

Künstlergilde Request

To acquire the services of Meisterin Brillantherz of the Zottelbärten Clan, the E.B.Co promised instruments for the new Bard's Academy in the Eastern Seal. The E.B.Co, however, has no formal connections to anyone who could possibly provide the musical instruments. It is the E.B.Co's hope that building these trade relationships will be fruitful for all parties involved. The first contact attempt is Xy'kara Duara Alfannanin of the Guild.

Partners in the North?

At the Trade Summit in the Realm of Roses Camp during the Summer Campaign 16 Jahre n.d.E, the E.B.Co spoke with a wealthy northern merchant who proposed a partnership for trade in the North.   The partnership would only be lucrative to the merchant if it had a long-term gain.  The E.B.Co will work on their relationship with Lunorth and attempt to become their primary trading company in order to fulfill such partnerships in the future.  

Business with Ad Astra

The E.B.Co along with the Baroness Sayeh of Sapphire Isle went to the Ad Astra Camp at the Summer Campaign 16 Jahre n.d.E to discuss trade instead of an embassy.  It was the opinion of the Embassy that the Free Citys were not what they were once thought to be and that it would be best to concentrate on trade through the E.B.Co.  The Ad Astra representative agreed to a potential presence of the E.B.Co but the E.B.Co would have to wait until the contract with the M.H. was finalized. 

Copperdale Trade for Lunorth

With the rise of the soon to be new Protector of Lunorth, Governor Niels Forbonte handed administration of trade over to Viktor Kettle.  At the Summer Campaign 16 Jahre n.d.E, Viktor entrusted the E.B.Co with a portion of Lunorth's resources to be traded for trainable-exotic animals and iron.  One of such trades was successful and the E.B.Co was able to potentially secure further trade deals in the future.  It is the wish of the E.B.Co that Lunorth expands its relationship with the E.B.Co.

Terra Tunnel Meeting and 

At the Convent of the Elements on the day following the Realm of Roses Trade Summit, the leader of Zackenberg, in the lands formerly known as Kelemthal, presided over the Terra Tunnel Meeting of which all those present at the Summit had been invited to. The meeting discussed the importance of repairing the Terra Tunnel in just over 40 days in order to transport the armies of Mythodea to the World Forge in time to defend it against the Forsaken.

It was agreed that two main project leaders would run the operation of the renovation.  A dwarf by the name of Master Muriel Brillantherz, of the Clan of the Zottelbärte was named as head of the underground operation and Dagger was suggested for the leadership of the above ground operation.  Only through interjection of the Kutscher Gilde did the Lord Zackenberg suggest that the two work together to lead the above-ground portion of the project.  All in attendance were in agreement and the two were given joint control over the above-ground work.  The E.B.Co. expects no trouble with the Kutscher Gilde as the two have grown close in the previous months.

The lord of Zackenberg has also expressed interest in the East Blackwood Companies ideas for River Trade.  Like the Baron Fiete Münzer, Zackenberg must also await permission from the Crown of Thornes and Roses before such a deal can be made.
