The Western Borderlands
Foreign merchant of odd customs
A quirky individual, Basim Ghassan hails from lands further to the east. He specializes in exotic trade – works of art, fabrics, gemstones, etc. He ventures by the keep once every year or two in the hopes of finding relics dug up from the unsettled lands to the west. He takes particular interest in items from the Devonian Empire, as he believes he can trace inspiration for some of his own land’s art to the Devonians.
He enlisted a band of adventurers in retrieving more of the Strange Coinage, stating that he had an alchemist buyer who was intrigued by the gold alloy’s strange properties.
