Slave trading is, unfortunately, a common practice in some nations of the Southern Continent. All caravans are allied, one way or another, with the Slaver's Guild (called The Hand).

Slavers are called "bloodless", a common insult in Byzantur. Before the oath is taken, the slaver cuts a shallow, symbolic slash in his left arm, spilling his own blood on the ground. "My blood is spilled. From this day, I have no other kin but my brothers of the Hand."

Slavery is outlawed in Rshan.
