The Iron Ring is a hobgoblin consortium of slavers. Unlike most hobgoblins, who view slaves only as spoils of war, the Iron Ring both buys and sells slaves, mainly with kholo,1 hryngars,2 and the undead of Geb. As they prefer to have human slaves, they rarely buy or sell with other human slavers, even though they operate mainly in the human nations of Katapesh and Qadira. While hobgoblins usually do not utilize ships, the Iron Ring maintains a small fleet which is coming into increasing conflict with the Gray Corsairs of Andoran.3

  2. Paizo referred to hryngars as duergar until the publication of Highhelm and the Sky King's Tomb Pathfinder Adventure Path.
