COMMODITY SHOPS - Aetolia Online Help


Commodity shops are special shops, run by and located in the villages   
that produce raw materials such as iron, silver, steel, leather, coal,  
cloth, and so on. These village shops each produce X quantity of        
commodity every Y period of time, and it's generally different for each 
village and each commodity. No village produces all of the commodities, 
and you'll find that prices will vary from village to village according 
to demand: If a particular commodity in a particular shop is sold out,  
the price will likely get raised when it is restocked. Similarly, if    
there is a large surplus, the price will likely get lowered. This       
creates the possibility of stocking up when prices are low, and then    
selling them via your own shop when prices have gone up.                

You will find these shops in Jaru, Tasur'ke, el'Jazira, Moghedu, Scidve,
Saluria, the Aureliana Forest, and in the Ogre fortress of  Thalagor. The 
cities of Sapience also run commodity shops, but their prices are determined by the city's Ministry of Trade. However, city-run commodity shops are often willing to buy surplus commodities from enterprising players able to buy them cheaper from the villages.
