Machinations of the Slave Lords!
Run by Halia Thornton, a calculating and conniving woman whose wit is as sharp as her instincts, the Miner’s Exchange has benefited more than any other business in the region with the re-opening of the lost mines. While their status as unofficial records keepers has transferred to the town hall (a fact which annoys and worries Halia).
The rise of the Lords Alliance in town has severely curbed the power base Halia was building, and she has since turned to other avenues to secure her influence and status in town. Sildar suspects that she is involved in unscrupulous dealings, having noted a few discrepancies in the records he inherited from her, but for now cannot deny the need for the Miner’s Exchange and has resolved to keep an eye on her.
