The largest and most profitable business in the Veins ironically has little to do with shipping. Instead, the sprawling, brick structure belonging to Getwahb Zet (male dwarf expert) houses dozens of enormous kilns and cauldrons. Day and night, Getwahb’s dwarven and human workforce process wood shipped down the Crook River into tar, charcoal, and wood alcohol for the city’s other industries. With Wati’s reliance on barge traffic, fired bricks, and embalming, the old dwarf’s venture has paid off, making him one of Wati’s richest citizens and giving him unparalleled influence along the waterfront. While city politics bore the aging engineer, the same can’t be said for his eldest daughter, Meehr Zet (female dwarf aristocrat), who eagerly spends her father’s money to buy her way into high society events.
