Expeditionary Mercantile Company
A mercantile interest that hires teams of adventurers and mercenaries to cross the Sunrise Ocean and operate in the Frontier. Companies are given tasks to explore the countryside and assist in cartographic updates, investigate prior habitation sites, and reclaim property and territory for the Duchies. In return, they are provided with lodging, medical care, and are given a pardon for any past legal disputes. Additionally, they can keep any wealth they discover while on duty. However, they are not permitted to explore on their own without approval from the local authorities. Any wealth garnered from such activities is considered pillage.
There is a one-time fee of 200 gold per person to join the EMC. Prospective mercenaries can also indenture themselves to the company for entry, requiring 500 gold to pay off their servitude. Additionally, there is a 50 gold fee every three months.Prominent Mercenary Teams
