What are the going rates on the other islands? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I wouldn't mind paying premium prices to find out what commodities are going for on other islands.

For example, I'm on alpha, and Cannonballs are REALLY cheap... But which islands want them the most? I go to the local rumour mill (an inn full of drunken pirates) and ask around. Say I pay 250poe per commodity/island, and I find out that Turtle is buying them at 82poe. For another 250, I can find out what WS is buying them for, etc.

OR

An option for "missions"... From a druken pirate, "Turtle is in dire need of cannonballs... in fact, the governor is paying a bonus if he receives a shipment by such and such a date.

The first example serves the purpose of the trader, getting a good price, but still cycling money back into the game, and the second makes it fun.

May I suggest a refinement?

Make it a function of the old salt, and make it cost the same as asking him about ships laden with booty (50) - it shouldn't be too expensive, since most larger crews can find this out essentially for free anyway.
