Sorofya.

This was a name that no one in Sia Continent didn’t know of.

It can be hard to make great work when its stolen from tinyurl.com/37k7u89t.

In this world, where the flow of information was severely limited by geographical distance, it was only natural that those who were born in the Austine Empire wouldn’t have heard of the Theocracy’s Xeclydes, and vice versa with the Austine Empire’s Ackermanns. But the name, Sorofya, was known by almost everyone regardless of which country they were from.

And the reason for that was the Sorofya Merchant Association.

The merchant association was born in the Rosa Merchant Confederacy, which was located at the heart of the Sia Continent. Its name was derived from the Rosa River that flowed through the entire northeast region.

Ease of travel, imparted by the river, and an ideal geographical location, allowed the area to swiftly grow into a trading hub shortly after the inception of the Third Epoch. Despite so, the civilians living there didn’t enjoy good lives.

This important trading hub was a strategic military location as well, making it a place countries fought for. To make things worse, Rosaians were incredibly wealthy, which meant that a successful military campaign could very well reap great benefits.

As a result of that, Rosa ended up changing hands many times.

This tragedy continued until 200 years ago, when Rosa was under the rule of the notorious tyrant emperor of the Austine Empire, Karwen II. The Rosaian merchants were finally unable to tolerate the brutal rule of their colonial masters, so they raised their flags and staged a revolt, eventually leading to the founding of the Rosa Merchant Confederacy.

Of course, all was not smooth during the founding of the nation.

The few major merchant houses who masterminded the revolution faced immense pressure from the Austine Empire, both militarily and financially. Some of them gave in to the monetary incentive provided by the Austine Empire and backstabbed the revolution, whereas others caved to the military pressure and raised their hands in surrender.

There was only one merchant house that continued to persist in its ideals, and that was the Sorofyas.

The Sorofya House was the only one that showed backbone amidst all of the money-minded merchants, and it was precisely because of their grit that they suffered the most during those dark times.

Translator Notes

Hahaha I changed the challenge a bit from 10 unique commenters per chapter to just 10 unique commenters, but anyway, we still met the challenge anyway ◔‿◔
Hooray!

Well, a part of the reason is due to Welmar said that these two chapters should go hand in hand. He said that we had too many world-building chapters, such that there isn't as much action as desired. Most importantly of all, he mentioned that this chapter ends at a steeper cliff than the previous (ikr, he's a horrible person (┛ಠ_ಠ)┛彡┻━┻)

Anyway, here's the next challenge hahaha.
【Challenge 2 (Ding!)
    Description: Have fifteen unique commenters on one chapter
    Reward: An additional chapter
    Progress: 0/15 (In Progress)】
Ehehe, challenges do need to get progressively harder ~~ and honestly, we do spend quite a bit of effort in the chapters so every single one of them are valuable at least to us (•̀ᴗ•́)و. 
Welmar spends a lot of time making thorough edits, such that even Tribe hasn't been pointing out any mistakes in the last few chapters (He used to be able to find mistakes in nearly every single chapter of LoHP and Tyrant).
