A small but successful exporting company based in Nantambu in the Mwangi Expanse run by Nieford Sharrowsmith in partnership with a local merchant, Aya Allahe. It is also secretly a Pathfinder lodge with Sharrowsmith as its venture-captain. The lodge is built from stone taken from an ancient temple. It consists of private trading rooms which back on to a courtyard which is the site of a busy bazaar. There are secret entrances into the lodge areas, which members of the Pathfinder Society can gain entrance to on presentation of the password. The lodge also includes the Gauntlet, an ancient maze believed to have staged gladitorial contests. The Society uses it to test and train members.
