Cheap Typhoon Rum [Viridian]
Is there any excuse for Typhoon island selling Rum on an established ocean cheaper then any player is selling it? Just because it's an event island doesn't mean it should undercut everyone else, make it reasonable but not dirt cheap please.

Edit- my crewbies told me it's bought all dockside, well at least raise your prices, you aren't providing a convenience, just a juicy target for traders to come take all the stuff from.

Works for them if they're making a profit on the markup. I used to try to do something like that at Gaea, and it was marginally succesful. The ship goods had high turnover, and we siphoned all the large and medium cbs off to the military stash. Paint moved pretty well, but the couple gold ores we passed on were great - something like a 5k cut for us, 5k for the trader who made the run.

I also kept a list on the notice board of which commodities were good trading goods at the time, and where they could be sold, for how much profit. I don't know if commodity trader was working at the time, but advertising which items were profitable to ship in and out definitely picked things up.

Why do OM's need to make money trading Rum and shot?

To the best of my knowledge, event island rum isn't magicked from anywhere; the fort just has buy and sell prices set, and any commods it has to sell have been brought there by player traders. Provided the buy is lower than the sell, which it is, I don't see how this can be undercutting anyone other than price-fixers.
