It is by far the largest organisation in all of Illtresi that is still independent from the country. While their main objective is selling, buying, and trading products, the Limani Dealers make it their mission to give back to the society that has allowed them to grow as big as they have.

From Pact to EnterpriseIn the olden days, before the Kingdom of Illtresi had fully established itself in the region, Limani was a small fishing village with a tight and helpful community. To obtain other products, like eggs and meat, two merchants travelled through the region to find other villages so they could trade wares. After a few trades, they setup a trade contract that specified the first exchange rates for the produce. More villages further inland heard about the trading contracts that the Limani merchants were handing out and they wanted to chime in on the deal too. Within a matter of years, the trading contracts between villages and Limani grew exponentially. In order to keep up with the trading demand, the villagers built ships and carriages so they could trade larger numbers of goods. A few merchants noticed that villages also wanted to trade with each other, but did not have the means to transport large numbers. They offered to facilitate the trade in exchange for a fee so they could maintain the transportation equipment.
Expanding Business, Increasing Employment OpportunitiesThe merchants from Limani knew they had found a business with great potential and took the lead in maintaining the trading contract. With that, the Limani Supplies Dealer came to life. The company facilitated trades between villages and kept a fair exchange rate for the several products that come to market. Aside from the trades themselves, they generated a stable income with renting their ships and carriages. To conintue building and maintaining their means of transportation, they setup three new coorporations that continues to provide the services regarding the transportation: the Limani Supplier Shipyard for the ships, the Limani Supplier Vehicles for the carriages, and Limani Supplier Breeding Facility for providing the animals that pull the carriages. With these extra companies, they have created a rich employment environment for the villagers and the new people who flocked to the thriving town. As the business continued to grow, the range of products and participating villages also increased. The most notable change was the value of products that were traded. In the olden days, it was just food and produce. However, as the empire grew, more expensive items came into the market. A few times, one of the carriages carrying an expensive item got robbed on the road. After the third time, the Limani Supplies Dealers asked a handful people from the towns militia to travel along with the trade to protect the wares and the people, of course against good pay. Bringing along a squat of bodyguards drastically decreased the number of successful robberies. To keep the town fully protected, the Limani Supplier Security Services came to life and dedicated itself to training young men into formidable security guards so they would not have to borrow the towns militia any longer.
Befriending a KingdomThe Kingdom of Illtresi have tried to make the Limani Supplies Dealers and their children companies part of the kingdom itself but to no avail. The Limani Dealers have made it clear that the want to stay independent as trade transcends the boundaries of countries in their opinion. After many back and forth conversations, the two parties came to an agreement. The company could stay independent, but they would have to pledge their allegiance to the kingdom in times of war. Their vehicles and ships ought not to be used by the enemies for the war, only for the trade. Furthermore, they have to help maintain the roads and rivers that they use frequently for the transportation of goods instead. It aliviates the company from paying taxes and allows them to contribute to the thing that they use the most. With the newfound allegiance, the Limani Dealers gained a free pass to setup new locations for their business throughout the country. Nowadays, there are multiple offices, trading outposts, and warehouses scattered all through Eshil.
The office is the central building for a part of the region that keep all the exchange rates of the products that circulate in the market of that specific subregion. Furthermore, large trading transactions, whether in quantity or in value, must be administered through an office before the trade can take place. An office has a direct line of communication to the headquarters to request all the assets required for the trade. They also provide HQ with a weekly report on all the sales, trades, and services provided.
Trading outposts can be found more frequently and in smaller cities and villages throughout the country. They often include a phoenixery for all the WafflePhoenixes and heaps of Limani Supplies Dealer Messages owned by the company to ensure that there is always a ways for community to notify the Limani Dealers of anything they want to sell or buy. If there is no office nearby, they can send their requests for more valuable trades directly to the nearest office.
The warehouse is where the Limani Dealers store their left over stock that they intend to sell later. Wandering merchants can request a space in the warehouse to store their goods until they have found the right purchaser for their items. There are multiple warehouses scattered through Eshil, but their location is not public knowledge. The only one that everyone knows about is the one in Limani itself.

This is super impressive work! How long did this article take you?
Thank you! I started writing it out in a notebook over dinner last week. Converting all that into these words... I think it's been somewhere between 10 to 12 hours? ^,^" It was quite the back and forth between my fingers and my brain. :D
Love the job ads as part of the article.
New Year's Resolution challenge Constructive Feedback: Although the rules said only constructive feedback, I'd like to do a little of both. I loved the emblem of the Limani Supplies Dealers as you first come in as it catches the eye on the top right. Also having a catchy slogan is fun to read and grabbed my attention. Great job sharing what an advertisement would look like. These will create great adventure hooks for if/when adventurers decide to join a service group. For the initial advertisement at the top, I think another section of the document may look better for it, either at the very top to pull readers in before the initial text, or right before the services section to hype the reader up for all the different services offered. Because I love pronouncing words in general, something to consider is if you want a unique name to sound a specific way, add a pronunciation so the reader know what it should/ you would like it to sounds like (this feedback of course depends on if you care what the reader thinks the word sounds like). Lastly when you used the word phoenixery, I did not have enough context to what the word all entailed. If I had to guess, it means a place to trade or hold goods? xD Hopefully this feedback helps. Thanks for the great read!
