Merchants and Smugglers of Piratical Swag

As you prepare for going "on the account", there are items you will need/want that may not be readily available in your homeport. Below is a listing of merchants and smugglers that are willing to do long-distance business. For your convenience, we have tried to list them in categories, but this is tricky when they carry more than one category of item. Not only should you look for a dealer under the category you need, but also look under "Living History Suppliers", as those are merchants who carry a wide variety of items. We have crossed-referenced a few listings where we felt warranted.

Three Skulls indicates the "No Quarter Given" stamp of approval. -- These are merchants & smugglers with whom we have trafficked, and whose merchandise we can heartily recommend. If a merchant doesn't have the three skulls rating, it doesn't necessarily mean they aren't to be trusted, or sell inferior goods. It just means we don't have first hand knowledge of them.

When contacting any of those listed below, please mention you saw their listing in the NQG web page. Tell us of any problems or good experiences you encounter. If you know of merchants that should be in this list, contact us.
