Trader Stan is the owner of a series of charter ships that can transport adventurers to various ports. He can be found on the docks of Port Sarim. Like the Trader Crewmembers he employs, he can give adventurers access to Trader Stan's Trading Post, a shop selling various miscellaneous items. He is a frequent visitor of Surula's bar, having racked up a debt of roughly 1000 coins. He also had an item stored on one of his boats which he wasn't too keen to talk about.
Stan's ships stopped travelling to the Wushanko Isles several years ago due to rampant sea monster attacks. However, after he had two ships stolen in quick session by the slaver Jed, he decided to try venturing back to the Eastern Lands. The first ship was stolen by Jed while the crew were changing, who sailed it to the Eastern Lands. The second was stolen shortly afterwards and used by Jed to attack Port Sarim Jail. He commissioned a local portmaster to captain a new ship, the Sarim's Revenge.
Trader Stan appears on free-to-play worlds, but can not be interacted with.

Technically, it's donated to me personally, but it's a boat for all of Port Sarim. And I am entrusting it to you, at least for the time being...though there is something I - we of Port Sarim - would like you to do in exchange."
