@Willy Verebwho said I gave you Hannover? Disagree.
@Letter BeeThe British aren't fans of anyone who wants to horn in on their state monopoly of monies so don't expect a lukewarm reception from us. Please also assume British hostility to you given your ship building program since the Mediterranean, and indeed all the worlds oceans, are considered ours.
Abd al-Rahman




"The Caravan Master says to shift the load into the other wagons and leave this one!" The man had to shout to be heard above the tempest of wind and al-Rahman eyed him incredulously for a moment. To empty the wagon, and move it to the side of the trail, would require a ridiculous amount of time, far more than they likely had in this blizzard.

His cloak, made of bear fur, was pulled tight about him as he waved toward the dark line of shapes that showed where his own soldiers waited. They were a stoic lot, much like their master, and equally as well dressed. Never let it be said al-Rahman did not care for his people.

The mage, still trying to work her magic on a problem that al-Rahman could have fixed some time ago, was pushed aside and the crew went to work. They had not been in this business for as long as they had without a decent knowledge of how to replace a broken wheel. Skis would of course have been more practical given the weather but he had believed the astronomers and was now paying the price. He resisted the urge to snarl at the mage. It wasn't her fault but but it sure felt that way.

Using several blocks of wood as a base they quickly drew two long sturdy logs, reinforced with iron brackets, from another wagon. Using a simple lever with four men sitting on the end, they were able to lift the damaged wheel mere inches off the ground; high enough to remove the offending piece and push the spare into place. The locking pin was hammered into place and the lever lowered until the wagon rested firmly on its wheels again. The whole procedure took less than half an hour, far less than the hour or two it might have taken to empty the wagon and repack the others.

al-Rahman flashed a thumbs up at Master Pan since speaking was impossible. The two lever logs and their supporting blocks were returned to the wagon and the signal to move out given.

At the head of the wagons, their huge shaggy backs almost like moving snow drifts, the Kanaliz Oxen, bred by the locals for just such a climate, bellowed whips cracked and the wagons slowly began to roll forward again.

al-Rahman walked alongside, as did his crew. There was no advantage to being mounted in this chaos, it would only serve to put his head above the magical barrier, and horses were no meant for such poor weather.

The horses, along with some of their equipment, had been left in Guanyo under the guard of four men to sick to travel into a winter wasteland. The journey was already days overdue and al-Rahman planned to drop what he had brought, turn around and get the heck out of town before real winter closed in. He had no interest in staying this far north longer than needed. The cargo was paid for, the trip was paid for, all he needed to do was make the delivery.
@VoxI assume Rashad is actually Rahman, so I will post with that assumption in mind...
Will post tonight!

Edit: I’m a liar… Home late from work. It’ll be tomorrow. Sorry.
@Dinh AaronMkdo you mind reviewing my sheet? If you’re good with the history still, as per the original approval, can you please modify the world map so I don’t have some wanna be “U-S-A! U-S-A!” player diving in there thinking it’s all hunkydorie please?
Well, in the words of the famous British General Lee Roy Jenkins “Let’s f*cking gooooooo!”
Abd al-Rahman


________________________________________
Abd al-Rahman
Male | Merchant | Human
_______________________________________________


Physical Description
Abd al-Rahman is not a tall man, standing just over 5'9, nor is he massively built like many other swordsmen. He is strongly built, lithe, and quick on his feet, despite pushing fifty.

He generally wears black, not to be sinister, but because it helps keep him warm in this northern land which he finds terribly cold.

Motivation
Abd al-Rahman has been tasked, like so many other merchants recently, to transport goods, armour, and weapons north. He has joined his own caravan with the larger one bound for Ssanjuu. His motivation is strictly financial at this time as he moves goods north with the goal of returning with some of the famed Ssanjuu crafting items to sell in his own homeland.

Other Information
Abd al-Rahman has some twenty men and women in his service who serve to guard four large wagons.
If you could fill out a bit more about Abd's Motivation that'd be fantastic. It's meant to give a peek into what should drive him as a person overall. If it helps, you can think of it as a mash-up of a personality/history section.


There you go. It's not much at the moment, but I suspect things will get more personal along the way...

@Vox discord could maybe help and take a look at CS please

Abd al-Rahman
