Blackmoor Merchant Wars

Post by Havard »

At one point Dan Nichols set up his Merchant Mafia, eventually controlling about half of Blackmoor Town's warehouses, while Mello and the Blue Rider teamed up trying to counter Nichol's Mafia.

Does anyone know anything more about this financial "war" in Blackmoor's history?

It would be interesting to know if Arneson used any sort of mechanics to determine the results of a financial battle...

Interesting topic!
On top of this, there is a series of MMRPG adventures about the businessmen of Blackmoor that touches similar issues and is very interesting as well!
