Tales of the Red Way
Duchant Trading Company
One might be surprised at how much fortune a furniture company could bring, but one look at the success of the Duchant Trading Company would show how success could come from such finely made crafts.
The Duchants have been in business for generations but only in the past fifty years have their successes truly moved them into one of the greatest craft houses in the realm. Their ‘secret’ is hardly one worth keeping. They were able to strike a bargain with the mysterious elves of the Elven Woods to take a small portion of the quality timber that grew there. It is unknown what they have promised in return as that remains the family’s main trade secret.
Due to these mysterious yet successful negotiations, the Emperor has been having talks with the leadership of the Duchant Trading Company as a way to have them negotiate on behalf of the Empire to get closer with the elves in order to forge a strategic partnership.
