Each clan has more than one trade-town.
Oh, interesting point of view. I read the same passage, but had a different interpretation.

I thought that "Outside each..." would refer to each of the (seven) clanholds (of the major clans), not to the (many) connections to the surface.

My reason: If only few connections are public knowledge, but each of them - even the unknown ones - have a trade town, then I would think that this would be a spoil of ressources. And the religion of Zarakun is absolutely not in favour of spoiling any ressource.
But on the other hand: I'm not a native speaker, so I may be wrong.
