Their Family Buys Entire Forewind Fleet
by Heine Stick, Staff Writer
Palanthas – On Majetag Lord Yanis Their announced that he has purchased all assets owned by the late Merchard Forewind. This move makes Lord Their's fleet of merchant vessels the largest in Palanthas.
"Merchard Forewind's death was a tragedy which deeply affected us all," said Lord Their. "However, it would be a shame to let his impressive fleet of ships go to waste and since his family has no desire to continue the business they agreed to sell it to me."
"I plan to expand my business to encompass Northern Ergoth and in order for that to happen I have to expand my fleet of ships. Lady Forewind and the rest of Merchard Forewind's family has been well compensated and will not need to worry about their financial position in the near future," explained Lord Their.
Lady Hanniah Forewind confirmed the deal. "It is true that we have sold our fleet of ships to Lord Their. It is with great sorrow that we let go of my dear husband's life's work but neither I nor my sons have any talent for the trade. We feel that this is for the best, especially considering that the fleet will come into good hands. Lord Their and my husband were very good friends and we are very confident that Lord Their put the ships to good use."
Merchard Forewind died last Gildember, the victim of unknown assassins who to this day have not been apprehended.
