Those moblins aren't just limited to the west- a few sightings have been reported in the East, with some rumours. The locals speak of Onis and other such evil spirits lurking with packs of orange-eyed blue goblins. First Mate Liam McSorley is assembling a small crew to venture out with the skiff and confirm these rumours.Buying Plant Feed

The Red Stripe Trading Company was formed by Bartholomew Bronson with investments from controversial figures such as Sire William Skeat and Jekyll Vortivask, alongside his own funds. Initially based in Ashdale's Kharazi colonies following the coup d'etat upon the previous governor, Sir Angus McPherson, the company siezed a small portion of the Dominion's tobacco plantations and, once the first crews were formed, established itself across Kandarin, Southern Misthalin and the Wushanko Isles.
The company's name comes from slang within Ashdale to denote a foreign sailor, or a 'red bander'. After the region gained independance from Asgarnia, many of the crews changed their ensigns to incorporate a red band diagonally from the top left to the bottom right. Due to it's controversial investors and quick rise into the limelight, the company is seen by many as a threat in a broad range of senses, with Asgarnia condemning it as a criminal enterprise, labelling many of the affiliated captains as pirates.
Nevertheless, the company is overwhelmingly popular with merchants from Ashdale, and known throughout Port Sarim, Port Khazard, Karamja and Ardougne. Alongside this, the Arc's residents have welcomed it with open arms. Captains working with the company are known to be efficient and quick witted, and overall the Red Stripe brand has a positive reputation behind it. Commonly traded goods include building materials such as bamboo, weaponry from both east and west, and luxury goods such as tobacco and vanilla.
For the most part, this role-play will follow the crew of the Wallasalki, a merchant sloop.

The Red Stripe Co. has a somewhat static shipping route for the most part, excluding special orders. The red line represents the initial journey, and the blue represents the return. The journey starts at the company's warehouse in Ardougne, the ship casts away carrying luxury goods from the market to trade in Port Khazard and Yanille, stocking up on runes and weapons. These are unloaded in Karamja for vanilla, tobacco and other exotic items which are promptly delivered to Port Sarim.
At Sarim, the ship will stock up for the journey east to the Wushanko isles, where it trades for the usual eastern goods such as bamboo, gunpowder and cherrywood. After a brief tour of the Arc and the Skull, the ship will return to Sarim to unload the cargo in the company's main warehouse, embarking to Mudskipper point to careen and perform maintenance upon the vessel before the return journey to Ardougne.
Due to the threat posed by pirates, most ships are equipped with at least 12 18lb cannons, and 2 4lb swivel guns at the helm.
