Marketplace option: market for advies
« Topic Start: October 08, 2011, 10:53:51 AM »
In a region with a market Advies could put certain items for trade against items they list as wanted.
This could make trading more easier, fun  and common.
Its quite anoying to travel around and meet only a few advies where you have to keep sending the same message to.

This makes a market more intresting, draw advies together in the same region, make cities more usful for adventurers and will increase trading and cooperating among advies.

I ussually find my advy wandering around shouting here me here me all the time without an awnser because people just don't bother to do everything by hnad.
This also makes the trading part of advies  more lightweight, you don't need to be as active to achieve the same thing.
This will certainly increase the social aspect.

Nobles will also know that certain cities are a flocking place for adventurers, the ideal place to go to if you seek to repair or buy an item/scroll.

Advies having "market stalls" has been a long-time approved feature request on the bug tracker. It's one of the low priority "if we ever get bored" things.

The idea to tie it in to the market places built in regions is an interesting addition.
If at first you don't succeed, don't take up skydiving.

This would get rid of the fact that right now you can sell common items to random regions but never buy items from anywhere.  I like it.

Hmm... it is good, indeed. Plus, when you sell an Item to somebody FOR GOLD, the item could be placed on sell option for the others.

With a good markup of course :)  Something like a 50% boost above sell value.  Though if this does get implemented people would want to be able to sell straight to other adventurers to keep some of that extra markup for themselves.

All you need to be able to sell items to other adventurers is the option to transfer gold/silver between them, rather than just items.

Would probably need some way to keep this from being abused, though. Don't want advies to be used as traveling banks.

import/export tariffs when they enter or leave a realm.

Don't the border guards do that already? :)

Those border guards up in Muspelheim are brutal. They charged me 15 silver last time I wanted to get into the city. >:(

They charge you an entry/exit toll, but my suggestion was to make the amount paid dependent on the amount of stuff you are carrying.
