Can you make it so smiths buy armor that they don't make? Maybe for scrap metal? It is hard to sell armor, you have to use a lot of turns going back and forth between towns and in the case of Dark Regions cross dangerous territory with no armor.
Want to make gold the easy way eh? I remember someone asking something along these lines before and the response was like "Merchant of kings" *laugh*.
Well no, just want to recoup some of what I spent on my old armor. The smiths do buy back armor if its the same type they sell, but at a big reduction. Which makes sense. Also, if you buy and equip new armor, the old armor sits in your inventory in that location forever.
Wizard, remember Gwynedd? I believe the plan was to make the merchant part of this game fit in to ROK so that they could be a merchant of kings as well *wink*.
