The Shield Trading Company was a merchant house, headquartered in Voonlar,[1][2] that did business throughout the Dalelands and Moonsea regions of north Faerûn.[3][4] It was owned by Zaravron Rarthree, an elderly and somewhat reclusive cloth dealer, and was in business some years before the Year of the Shield, 1367 DR,[5] through at least the Year of Wild Magic, 1372 DR.[6]

ActivitiesEdit

The Shield Trading Company ran caravans between various cities in the Dalelands and the Moonsea, most of which either began or ended in Voonlar.[3] The company was known to hire adventurers as caravan guards as long as they were not known to have ties with the Zhentarim.[7] The company also owned and operated the Sign of the Shield, the largest and most luxurious inn in Voonlar.[1][2]

Base of OperationsEdit

The company headquarters were located on the north side of Shind Road, northeast of the intersection with Daerndrean Street, in Voonlar. It was directly across the street from the Sign of the Shield.[1][2]

RelationshipsEdit

The Shield Trading Company was independently owned and not under the influence of investors in league with or belonging to the Zhentarim.[1][2][3]
