- Oleg’s Trading Post
Despite his gruff nature Oleg is really enjoying his post as chancellor. He sees an opportunity for both this new country and for himself.

The trading post is a versatile structure built to serve as a place of business. If the PCs decide to found a city in this hex, they can incorporate Oleg’s as a half price Shop, Stable, or Watchtower in their city grid (once chosen, the function of Oleg’s within the new city cannot be changed).
