The Tome of Lore: Table of ContentsSryth™ Expanded Info Entry
The Blue Bowline, a barge owned and operated by a league of merchants based in
Mirgspil , was destroyed by fire while moored at the
riverdocks in Trithik nearly
a decade ago.
The mysterious (suspicious) late night inferno that engulfed the barge is long believed by
many to have been the work of rival merchants based in Trithik who sought to
undermine the commercial efforts of their rivals.
Two dozen occupants of the barge, both passengers and crew, died in the blaze, trapped
below deck with no way to escape.
The River Guild was tasked with investigating the fire but failed
to conclusively determine its origin.
To this day, the Blue Bowline remains a sore subject for many who engage in commerce along
the River Trynd and has served to intensify the sometimes vicious
rivalries between merchant factions in Trithik and Mirgspil.
