House Rees

House Rees is one of Balic’s most economically successful merchant houses. At one point it controlled much of the grain trade across Athas, overseeing the shipment of Nibenese rice to Draj, Draji corn to Tyr, Tyrian faro to Urik, and more. House Wavir has largely supplanted it in that field, however, and House Rees now focuses on more specialized foods.

With House Wavir and House Tomblador, House Rees is one of the three sponsors of the fortified town of Altaruk.
