Found through out the island at various carts, booths, and offering services inside dozens of inns, Simon and Ditmus Messaging competes with few for the title of premier couriers on Fogdown.

History

Simon and Ditmus Messaging was founded towards the final years of the second republic by Simon Ashral and Ditmus Brell. The two humans were colleagues at the Arcanexicanium who struggled with the rigid hierarchy of privilege and title that commonly influenced promotion and teaching status. As low level professors, the two sought out other avenues for making a stake in the city, that had just stabilized under the rule of the Keepers of the Mist. When the two learned the Arcanexicanium were proposing mining under the bay in search of the recently discovered De’Ryans’ Eye gems, they packed up their things and purchased a courier service in the Upper Docks. Using their arcane resources and knowledge, Simon and Ditmus trained and equipped special couriers called Runners, to act as scouts and messengers to the expedition occurring under the bay. When suddenly the miners disappeared, Simon and Ditmus utilized their couriers knowledge of the mines under to bay to establish a special-nitch service: Quick delivery of confidential messages and packages from the Upper Docks to the Lower Docks.

After Simon and Ditmus passed away, the company was entrusted to their most loyal and experienced employee: An Aasimar by the name Muriel Brightfane. Under the direction of Muriel, S&D Messaging has expanded it’s services to include everyday messaging from dozens of locations on the island to any other district. They also continue to make deliveries by way of the Underbay, but most deliveries are restricted to packages.
