Traladaran Clansby Jennifer Guerra
Before the Thyatian invasion, and the subsequent conquest of Traladara by Stefan Karameikos, this rich coastal and forest region was dominated by powerful Traladaran families, called clans. Clans often did business based on their location, such as coastal clans being involved in shipping and uplands clans in agriculture or logging, etc. (Note that this system is similar to that of the Darokinian trade houses, which are often dominated by members of a single family.) Each clan had its own siege, and while some were more powerful than others, all were powerful in their own right; and all were fairly wealthy, before they were crippled by Thyatian taxation.
Below is a list of the most powerful Traladaran clans, their sieges, and any other information of note. Clans are listed in order of importance. Clans in italics have ceased to exist; a reason is given in the notes section.
