I am winding up my current campaign and looking to start a new one. The idea is to run a fantasy campaign where there is a clash of different cultures in a trade-city and was looking for a fantasy campaign/module/adventure path set in something like the Silk Road.

I've already got the book "A Magical Society: Silk Road" but was wondering if there's anything I have missed.

Dark Sun is a setting that is a perfect fit for such a fantasy milieu. The City of Tyr is a trade city with a clash of cultures, especially after it gaining its new-found freedom from the rule of its sorcerer king. The Dune Trader accessory (for AD&D 2nd) gives the rules for merchants and trading. The adventures are epic but still provide enough opportunities and motivation for trading characters (I myself played through the adventure path with a dune trader character, and it was much fun.)

Another good setting is Earthdawn. Here, the cities of Bartertown and Vivaine are good choices to center a trading campaign upon. I don't remember Earthdawn having specific rules for trading, but quite a few character archetypes and skills support the idea.
