Frequently-Asked Questions

What do the merchants buy from me?

There are many hundreds of automated merchants and shopkeepers throughout The City.

Naturally they're not all the same. They sell and buy different stuff, to different people, at different times of day, depending what tattoos the customers have and whether they bow first and what day of the week it is and on and on.

Many merchants aren't interested in buying from you. Others choose to buy and sell. Of these, many will buy items similar to the ones they sell. So, somebody who sells shoes might buy them too. But a merchant who sells shoes maybe isn't interested in buying daggers.

Use the Value command to ask a merchant if they're interested in some item you're hoping to sell. If they want it, they'll say so.

Note that different merchants charge different prices for the same Items. It's likely that the merchants who charge more for an Item will pay less to buy it from you. So, explore, and ask experienced players for advice.
