TriadCity Message of the Day
NPCs are now able to bid on auctions.
This is a potential new source of income for players. If you acquire interesting gear which you're unable to Sell to a shopkeeper, try Auctioning it instead. You might make a tidy living acquiring hard-to-find herbs or equipment required by certain NPCs.
Note that trivial Items won't be accepted by the auctioneers; and not every nontrivial Item will have an interested buyer. Basically just like auctioning to human players. The difference is that now there's a larger pool of potential interest.
Over time more and more NPCs will be added with interests in specific Items or categories of Items. Comic book collectors! Model train enthusiasts! Poison plant sap buyers! Stuff like that.
Meet you in the city!
