NOTICE: Please read this
"Male and female outlaws do not much bother one
another at the exchange points. They keep their own markets. I cannot
recall a case of females being enslaved at an exchange point, as they
bargained with their wares, nor of males being enslaved at their
exchange points, when displaying and merchandising their captures. If
the exchange points became unsafe for either male or female outlaws,
because of the others, the system of exchange points would be largely
valueless. The permanency of the point, and its security, seems
essential to the trade."

The Laurius Exchange Point
From the depths of the Northern Forests or from a boat, small ship, or
ferry on the Laurius River, you have arrived at an exchange point
several hundred pasangs up the river from Lydius and gleaming Thassa.
Here, slaves are often found for sale, captives taken by
Outlaws and Panther Girls, whether wandering strangers or former comrades who for whatever
reason were found lacking by those who live freely in these forests.
Betrayal and intrigues abound in the forests; who can say for certain
how slaves find their way to the A-frames where they are put on
display for those traveling up and down the river? It is a
humiliating end, that much is certain, and slaves are sold for any price,
great or small.
Panthers are the main
traders here and will usually bring slaves, furs, and other products of
the forest to trade for goods that are not readily available, such as steel arrowheads, spearheads and knives, collars,
chains, slave traps, candies, brushes, mirrors, and many other things.
Each trader, no matter their allegiances inside or
outside of these forests, are wary of other outlaws, but trade and commerce are
powerful motivators in bringing two opposing sides together.
Whatever the opinions each has of the other, the peace here is kept, and
negotiations and trade are conducted with respect...or not at all...
