This much smaller cousin to Bilgewater Port is on the opposite side of the island of Kezan. A pirate group called the Blackwater Raiders runs the town, and Edj has a secluded port that primarily serves the Raiders and their allies. Despite the fact that they’re pirates, the Blackwater Raiders are not really bad guys (at least, not when compared to the Scourge and the Burning Legion, or even their evil rivals, the Bloodsail Buccaneers). They’re less interested in plunder and more interested in securing mercantile deals and widening the circle of ports with which they can trade.
A goblin called Baron Revilgaz, based in Booty Bay in southern Azeroth, rules the Blackwater Raiders and thus is technically in charge of Edj. The Trade Coalition has little influence over Revilgaz, and indeed the Raiders attempt to go under, above, or around the coalition’s head. The port in this town is largely for goods the pirates don’t want the coalition to know about: contraband and especially pricey stuff, like magic items and political prisoners. For normal trade items, they go through Bilgewater like everyone else.
