Oleg's Trading Post

Oleg’s Trading Post is located at the northern edge of Droth Shar (and thus the southern edge of Brevoy). To the south, the green line of the Narlmarches looms only a few miles away.

Before the founding of Droth Shar the trading post’s remote location and inconvenient distance from a major river had prevented it from realizing significant financial success. That was just fine for Oleg, who in truth decided to move to such a remote location to get away from the constant machinations and political maneuverings that dominated urban life in Restov. All Oleg ever really wanted with his trading post was a place for him and his wife to live far enough from the sins of civilization without living so far that he couldn’t enjoy all of its benefits. Accepting a charter from Restov to rebuild an abandoned border fort into a trading post seemed like the perfect solution.

Oleg and Svetlana spent months rebuilding the old fort. Their customers were few and far between, consisting mostly of trappers, hunters, and the eccentric local hermit Bokken, but the trade in furs, jerky, and the occasional magic potion from Bokken were enough to keep them in business. That all changed when the Lord of Shadow first ventured into the Greenbelt.

When the heroes met Oleg he had endured a number of Bandit raids from the south. Were it not for the fact that Oleg feared for his wife’s fate, he would have doubtless sacrificed his life to the bandits in a foolish attempt to defend his stock when they first paid a visit. Svetlana had pleaded with her husband several times to abandon the post and return to Restov, but Oleg,feeling a deep shame for having to hand over so much stock each month had stubbornly refused to give in to the bandits so completely. His only concession to Svetlana’s wishes had been to send several requests to the city for reinforcements whenever a trapper or hunter stops by on their way back to civilization—when the heroes arrived the couple believed their pleas had been answered.
