The Consortium for Magical Trade on Earth
The Consortium for Magical Trade on Earth (or the CMTE) handles the trade relations between the rest of the Multiverse and Earth. Representatives from the CMTE can be found in most Sanctuaries, and they make sure that researchers and Sanctuary members have the magical supplies they need to keep going.
HistoryThe Consortium formed in the early 20th century in response to a growing amount of magical research among the Terran mage population. Mages had very little ability to get ahold of magical ingredients like potion reagents or magical foci, among other things. The Consortium set itself up to fulfill this need, forming a network of small warehouses to store materials in between deliveries and pick-ups. When the first travellers from the rest of the multiverse arrived, the Consortium, among other similar organizations that they have since driven out of business, quickly stepped in to profit off of the demand. Because of the agreements reached with the Seven in the early 1950's, the Consortium began to cooperate closely with the Department of Transport. This broadened its ability to reach far-flung markets in the Multiverse and led them to spend more of their energy on making Terran products desirable in the rest of the Multiverse, as opposed to focusing solely on the sourcing of magical supplies and ingredients.
