He also rejects the Zhentarim bid for control of the weapons trade, saying, "I'll grant that the scepter and the fist are instruments of tyranny, but the keen edge of a sharp blade is as much an instrument of freedom as it is the heavy boot of tyranny". Given the ongoing hostilities beneath the boughs of Cormanthor, Dabron decides to take advantage of the unexpected situation and sell his wares in Arabel. The master of House Sashenstar begins entertaining bids from quartermasters working on behalf of the armies of Hillsfar, Sembia, Zhentil Keep, and Seiveril's Crusade. »
