Slave trading has been a part of Ehrdi since its early days. Primitive nomadic tribes often enslaved captured members of rival tribes. However, slavery reached its peak during the empire of the Ancients when the race held control over all the world. After they died out, slavery lessened and was once again found mainly among rivaling tribes. As civilizations regrew, slavery became a larger trade once again, especially in the time of the Druden empire.
In recent years, slavery has lost much support, and most countries and territories have outlawed it. This has led to a lucrative black market of slave trading in some areas.
