The Lost Seas
House Tomblador is a vast Balican merchant dynasty with holdings in every city-state exept Gulg and Nibenay.
The sworn enemy of House Wavir, Tomblador gladly deals in the slave trade that Wavir forsakes. Tomblador was the preeminent merchant house of Balic until Wavir arose and displaced it two centuries ago. Today, Tomblador controls many of Balic’s silt skimmers and the Estuary trade (most lucratively, Tomblador maintains relations with many giant tribes and serves as Athas’ major distributor of giant-hair ropes). Despite its rivalry with Wavir, the two houses (along with House Rees) share control of the fortified town of Altaruk under the watchful eye of Balic.
