Reclaiming the Tailche Soir
Tailche Soir Company
The Taiche Soir Company (TSC), originally chartered as the Governor and Company of Adventurers of Sanchthair trading into the Tailche Soir, and often called the Her Majesty’s Tailche Soir Company, was a Sanchthairish and later Anaihnid joint-stock company and megacorporation formed for pursuing trade with the Tailche Soir but which ended up trading mainly with the Wooley Bay basin, Barrier Peak frontier province and the Gobli plains.
The Taiche Soir Company traded mainly in gold, silver, gems and ancient Tailchean artifacts. Less than a year after the Taiche Soir was opened up to recolonization, the Queen granted a Royal Charter to Giorg, Earl of Cairloch, and 215 Knights, Aldermen, and Burgesses under the name, Governor and Company of Adventurers of Sanchthair trading into the Taiche Soir, making it the oldest among several similarly formed Anaihnid trade and exploration companies. Shares of the company were owned by wealthy merchants and aristocrats. The government owned no shares and had only indirect control.
The Company functioned as the de facto government in parts of Taiche Soir before Anaihnid states laid claim to those territories. From its long-time headquarters at Queensport on Wooley Bay, the company controlled trade throughout much of Anaihnid-controlled Taiche Soir for several years. Undertaking early exploration, its traders and adventurers forged early relationships with many groups of indigenous tribes.
