The Fur Trader is the middle man in the fur business. After the trapper has accomplished the difficult task of acquiring the pelt from its reluctant former owner, he passes the fur to the trader, in exchange for gold or food, bullets and powder, or other supplies. The Trader processes the pelt, trims and cleans it, and in general prepares it for its long journey to the markets of Europe. A good Trader can vastly increase the value of a pelt, earning himself and his colony a tidy profit on each shipment.
