The Traders of the Southern Archipelago represent one of the four original nations present within the Ethersea campaign. They were known to be significant patrons of the arts, and were the third of the four nations to evacuate in the face of the coming apocolypse, choosing to create a fleet of Ark Ships and nomadically journey through the Ethersea. A coalition of Traders stayed for a time with the coastal settlement of the Prologue, eventually donating an Ark Ship that would come to serve as a central hall of the city of Founders' Wake.
