Drake's Dozen
 

Revolution is coming


Industrial, magical, political; the dual-moon planet of Neyush is on the precipice of change.

People of many different species, reeling from the effects of the Great War almost two centuries ago, are accelerating into a new age, fueled by innovative discoveries and forgotten secrets. The event that ended the war and decimated an entire people is referred to as The Blink.

No-one knows how or why it happened, though many have theories.

Little fish, big pond


The Blink also brought change to the Dozen.

Empty metaphysical Spheres of existence, or the homes of unknowable, ancient gods? Opportunities for life-enhancing magitech, or eldritch traps waiting to ensnare the curious? Aspects of reality as normal as time and gravity, or complex creations of the Drake herself?

Whatever the Dozen truly are, something is different now. Something changed with the Blink. Something is coming to Neyush.

Are the secrets behind the Dozen the key to saving it, or the catalyst for its doom?

South Chezri Trading Company

Assets

Due to the freelance nature of a lot of the traders, it's difficult to get an accurate count of the exact number, but at any given time there could be dozens of ships both on routes and docked across south Chezri and the Chezrian Archipelag.

The most valuable asset they have is definitely Chezrian Wheat. Between the inhospitable climate of most of the Chezrian mainland, and frequent pirate attacks on their shipments, the demand is usually much higher than the supply.

Its debatable whether the company technically owns the wheat itself or not. The company is technically run by Gok-Rock, which also runs most of the agricultural infrastructure, but the exact heirarchy is a bit more nebulous than that, again, due to a lot of the merchants, sailors and the ships themselves being hired on a freelance basis, or, in the case of the ships, rented rather than owned outright.

History

The trading company came about almost by accident.

The Island Tilkens of the nearby archipelago are world-famous for the sailing prowess and adolescent silk sails; when people started using the unusually fertile land in south Chezri for farming, it made sense to use the ships they already had to start shifting any excess to people who needed it.

Over time, both the settlements around Gok-Rock and the trading company itself grew organically and haphazardly into the sprawling network of farming and commerce that they now represent.

Nice article. Do the traders attempt to sent protection ships along to ensure safety from pirates or would this be in vain?   It seems the italics went wrong here " [i[owns "

Feel free to check out my latest challenge article the Avaronian Empire if you want to see what I am up to!

It did indeed go wrong, but it's fixed now - thanks!   They do indeed, which only hikes the price even further.
