A Plague of Onces
The East Meda Trading Co
The East Meda Trading Co. is a multinational trading conglomerate now based in Ashtesma. Originally, the company began in a small village known as East Meda, which was across the channel near what is now Voskresenia. They specialize in moving bulk trade goods mostly – spices from Ehesh and Oweth, fruit from Abari, exotic goods form the newly discovered New Harmony, etc. They can be found in nearly every major city, with local branches all over the world. They are also very profitable, and East Meda has no shortage of coin, which allows them to buy their way into pretty much any port they’d like. However, with a business this large you might also gather that there is a seedy side as well. EMT Co has been known to deal in slaves – especially natives from New Harmony and prisoners from Lareux Foret. They have also been known to traffic goods that are illegal in some ports, and ignore local tariffs. Rumor has it they have also put more than one detractor under contract if it means business keeps running smoothly.
