6.11.1 Selling Things

(See HELP MARKET, HELP ADS, HELP CREDIT TRANSFER, HELP CREDIT MARKET,
     HELP COMMS, HELP RATS, HELP FISHING, and HELP SHOPS)

You can sell just about anything if you know where or to whom! Have a sword you no longer need? One of the land's many practitioners of forging would be willing to take it off your hands. Did you just milk 5 vials of poison? One of the land's many warriors will surely buy them.

Mostly Adventurers, Not Shops
-----------------------------
Most shops don't buy, but players do: the trick is to find them! The easiest ways can be on the market channel or with ads. Other options relate to credits and becoming a shopowner.

MARKET  - after level 11 or so you can use the market channel to look for
          adventurers to buy things from you. (HELP MARKET)

ADS     - Advertisements are an alternative to MARKET. (HELP ADS)

CREDITS - Transfer/sell credits to other adventurers (HELP CREDIT TRANSFER)
          or use the credit market. (HELP CREDIT MARKET)

RATS    - Elvandar, Krondor, and Sar-Sargoth each have a denizen
          that will buy rats from you. (HELP RATS)

FISH    - Herman Pequod is a fish buyer (HELP FISHING).

COMMS   - Commodities maybe be bought and sold at comm shops (HELP COMMS).

SHOPS   - You could become a shopowner. This can be extremely expensive.
          Shops may be available from their current owners, or their cities.

Some Things That Should be Pretty Easy To Sell (And To Whom!)
-------------------------------------------------------------
weapons - try asking a blacksmith who can smelt.
armor   - try asking a blacksmith who can smelt.
comms   - popular for all crafters.


Persons - Slaves and Otherwise
------------------------------
You cannot auction, sell, or offer for rent, lease, loan, or any other form of use or transfer, persons or people.

Services are fine.

Slave auctions happen, but they must always clearly and explicitly mention that services - not persons - are for sale or being offered for whatever purpose - lease, rent, loan, etc. That means clearly and explicitly EVERY TIME it is mentioned, not just once at the beginning of the auction.
