The East Empire Trading Company, also known as the East Empire Company, or the EETC,[1] was a powerful, multi-national, "monopolistic mercantilist"[2] trading company in Tamriel, that is controlled by the Empire. It is also a joinable faction in Morrowind expansion The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon, and is also encountered in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The East Empire trading company has holdings in many eastern territories of the Cyrodilic Empire, such as Morrowind, Skyrim and Solstheim. The company owns the East Empire Company Warehouse just outside of Solitude and offices in Windhelm. It has a monopoly over trade in the Eastern Provinces, this is primarily due to the fact that the company is chartered by the Emperor of Tamriel.


The East Empire Company also controls the trade of kwama eggs, Telvanni Bug Musk, mazte, sujamma and other local products of Morrowind as well as imports, such as flin and Cyrodiilic Brandy.[2] The high price of flin imports may be attributed to the East Empire Company's complete control on prices, due to lack of competition. In Morrowind, they have also, made the trade of Raw Ebony and Dwemer artifacts illegal.[3]


Many senior ranking officers in the company are seen as corrupt and resented by some people in the provinces who see the businessmen as Imperial colonialism robing the local natural resources. The East Empire Company provides employment and financial stability to the Empire. House Hlaalu and the East Empire Company, who owns the Caldera Mining Company, in the town of Caldera, compete over ebony business.[4]

Every company chapter is headed by a Factor who directs and controls the affairs of the company in his region. As a high-ranking official of the company, they have the right to construct an estate on the company premises, such as the large Factor Estate adjacent to the company's ebony mine inside of Raven Rock.

  • Because the EEC was added as a faction by Bloodmoon, the East Empire Members found in Ebonheart, on Vvardenfell, are not integrated into the faction.
  • The East Empire Trading Company shares many similarities with the real-life British- and Dutch East India Company. Like its game counterpart, the company was sanctioned and partly funded by the British state who also granted them a complete monopoly over the British Empires eastern trade. Further similarity is seen in the corrupt nature and political power of the East Empire Trading Company, which the East India Company was infamous for.
  • After the quest for re-opening the company is completed, Hold Guards will sometimes thank the player and say that they are going to have the company import them "some Aged Breton Cheese."
