    Regional Products of the Flanaess - Cloth and Fur



    Blue = Fur
    Red = Cloth

    As can be seen the origional resource map shows a strong interconnection between areas exporting fur (almost all the northern realms with the exception of Blackmoor and the Snow Barbarians. The same is reasonably true regarding cloth production and export.

    Fur in this case can be guessed at as referring to heavy winter furs rather than the inclusion of pelts, skins or hides.

    Cloth production and especially exportation seems much more questionable. It is so widespread that it makes me wonder who is buying the exports?

    Reviewing the Gazetteer, the areas that Jason colored yellow all export platinum.

    This was helpful for my new Sea Princes campaign because the Hold only exports food according the "gold box" World of Greyhawk Campaign Setting. (The Living Greyhawk Gazetteer added slaves as a pre-Brotherhood export.) For the historical resonance, I had imagined adding cotton to the Sea Princes' exports. Regarding food, pineapples, rice, and sugar immediately come to mind, along with other subtropical fruits.

    The various regions probably export cloth to each other, because different areas produce different kinds of cloth.
    Different plants used for cloth grow best in different climates. For instance, flax (used to make linen) grows best in cool, moist, cloudy environments, while cotton grows best in hot, humid climates.
