Age of Obsidian
Trades with Devils
As the sun sank in the west, Trades with Devils shielded his eyes and watched as the last of its last rays glinted off the spires of Castle Korvosa. The castle sat atop the flat-topped pyramid whose building was lost in the mists of time, long before the modern city was founded. Trades with Devils ran his hand over the stubble covering his tattooed scalp, and listened as his two apprentices, Hargrev and Shradfrar, set up camp and tended to the pack animals. In the morning, they would cross the bridge into the city, and deliver the pelts that they had spent the last year collecting to the Chelish trader Vibia Crispin. Although Vibia was young, Trades with Devils had found her to be as shrewd as any Drumarian merchant-lord, and Trades with Devils knew he would have to be at his sharpest to get the best price from her.
