Operating out of the Andoran city of Oregent, the infamous Lumber Consortium holds a monopoly on darkwood and other hardwoods in Andoran. It also controls more than half of the nation’s supply of softwoods.
In a ruthless drive for prof it, the Lumber Consortium works to death its lumberjacks, blacksmiths, and day laborers, particularly in the darkwood-rich Darkmoon Vale. The
past abuses and unfair practices of the Lumber Consortium earned it the animosity of the democratic government that came to power in Andoran 40 years ago and that, at
least for the time being, relies heavily on the Consortium for lumber. Much reduced in power and size, the amazing prof its the Lumber Consortium once enjoyed have all but disappeared. Regardless, the Lumber Consortium remains one of the most powerful private organizations in
Andoran, and its influence can be felt throughout southern Avistan.
