Hansoran League: A Business guild of the most successful and powerful merchant families/companies of Menth. They have offices scattered all over the coast as far south as Whales. The League keeps its interests limited to commerce and trading and stay out of politics as much as possible. They make a good amount of money from trade with Metamor and have done their best to stay on the Duke's good side. Their trade caravans are a common, if little noticed sight in Metamor.
Menth and Sorin are both in competition with each other for any trade they can especially the trade with Metamor Keep but both are united on one fact. Neither likes attempts by Midtown to dominate the the Northern Midlands. It is not by accident that a road leads straight from Menth to Metamor bypassing Midtown completely. This allows Menth to avoid Midtown patrols and taxes. Even caravans from Sorin routinely use the road (after paying a suitable fee of course). This of course has Midtown upset as they see it as cheating them of their rightful taxes and it keeps them from fully controlling all trade with Metamor. If both cities were to stop feuding and join forces it would make for a very formidable and very powerful organization. A fact that is starting to be taken seriously in both cities.
