History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Almost every Lancian is a member of several guilds, called tariils, to share arts, crafts and other topics of their life. The mercantile guild is open to everyone who is focused on interstellar trade, for the ramprat as for the ship captain.

The Long Night was nearly over and Lancian remembered Vilani dominance. So members of the mercantile guild focused on optimizing interstellar trade in Gushemege and actively supporting the Sylean Federation and later the Third Imperium.

Gushemege sided against Arbellatra during the civil war (604-629). In reprisal the sector capital was moved from Kamurinmur to Usdiki. The mercantile guild went into the marquis and official ceased to exist. But it is impossible to forbid Lancian to meet in their tariils. The mercantile guild became a Silent Tariil of Lancians who work for imperial starports, imperial, corporate or free trader, and on some ships operating on the darker side of trade. Inside Gushemege, the mercantile guild did not officially exist, but it was everywhere where interstellar trade was handled. Outside Gushemege it was mainly known for drug and weapon smuggling, hidden troop transports and often also piracy.

History-Era: Rebellion[edit]

When Strephon came back to Usdiki from an inspection of Longbow he found the Third Imperium in rebellion. He did not had large asserts to secure his area. Most scientists and the scout service stayed loyal to the Emperor in addition to the sector fleet who stood behind his wife. He decided to re-legalise the mercantile guild, to optimize trade within his stronghold and to integrate the darker part into his Covert Survey Bureau of the scout service.

The hard times had been good times for the guild, expanding in refugee relocation trade, while supporting black war strikes of the covert survey bureau with the logistics of 500 years of pirate tradition.

History-Era: New Era[edit]

The guild recovered from virus infection on most ships after their agreement with the Last Sane to crew ships for the body swap protocol and to help trade with local populations.

The guild extended their trade to the Regency after contacting the Islands, selling medicals and drugs while buying imperial spare parts at weekly changing deep space calibration points known to have an icy rock to refuel by project Longbow scan data. A second extension of trade was driven rimward by the Empress Wave because several awaken still follow the commands of Strephon himself, who ordered that the Imperium, or at least Rurevayn, has to be evacuated in case Avery has no success with his mission. Exporting complete class A starports, even larger than the average YachtPort of most worlds in Rurevayn was natural choice when local maintenance capacity reached its limits. In result several islands had been built in the wilds. Each island has a Kazou class JumpPort with additional automatic fabrication facilities and a fleet of trade and prospecting vessels. This formed a trade line with a few islands per sector extending deep into the Solomani Rim.

Inside Gushemege the mercantile guild are those who crew the ships or haul cargo as a ramprat. Outside Gushemege, the Guild is just called the trade vampire.
