SELLING PETS - Imperian Online Help
6.11.1 SELLING PETS
Tamed pets are a marketable commodity in the Imperian marketplace. Using animal pens, a purchasable addon in shops, a shopkeeper is able to place a pet up for sale. Each pet in an animal pen will generate an upkeep tax, which will take away from the sale revenue. PETSKILLS / PETCONSIDER / PETASSESS can all be used on pets being sold in a shop. The following commands will only work in the stockroom of a shop and are either the owner of the shop or one of the owner's allies: SHOP PURCHASE ANIMALPEN - Purchase an animal pen in order to store pets in a safe environment in your shop. - You can have a maximum of 20 pets in a single animal pen. - Animal pens have all the same functionality of shelves, so the SHELF command applies. - Animal pens currently cost 250k. PETSHOP PRICE <pet> IN <animalpen> FOR <gold amount> [BASEPRICE] - This is the syntax that which will lead your pet into the animal pen and set it up for sale. - While the pet is in the animal pen, it will be cared after by a stable boy so that it remains fit for sale. It will generate an upkeep tax, similar to that of a pet in a stable/kennel. - When the pet is bought from the shop, the upkeep tax for the pet will be deducted from the revenue automatically. - If the upkeep tax is higher than the purchase price, the pet will not be purchasable. - If BASEPRICE is used, then the price will become variable and evaluated as "GOLD# + UPKEEP". - If you don't have "Transfer" in Taming then the pet will lose a little % of its skills. PETSHOP RELEASE <pet> FROM <animalpen> - This will remove your pet from the animal pen, removing it from sale. - When removing a pet from the animal pen, you will be forced to pay the upkeep tax of the pet from gold in your inventory. PETSHOP PAYUPKEEP <pet> IN <animalpen> - If you are feeling generous to your customers then you can pay the upkeep tax associated with your pet. - This is particularly useful if you're using the BASEPRICE option.
