6.26 Commodities and commodity shops

(See also: HELP SHOPS)

Iron, silver, gold, platinum, steel, coal, gems, bone, obsidian, stone, wood, cloth, rope, and the like.

They may be found in commodities shops. These shops may buy or sell, unlike most other types of shops which only sell.

Many types of comms may also be produced by players in our Mining system. See HELP MINES for more details. Fibre for cloth and rope, and wood are produced
by players via our Foraging system. See HELP FORAGING for details.

When any commodity is removed from the rift or warehouse, or when purchased from a commodity shop, it will begin to decay. They will last for 8 hours (that's 8 real life hours).

Ship Commodities
These can be made from regular commodities, or will be awarded when dismantling
ship equipment or ships. These are used to make ship equipment and alter the 
appearance of your ship.

Shipcloth - 50x cloth
Shipiron - 50x iron, 10x steel
Shipwood - 50x wood, 10x iron
Shiplines - 50x rope, 10x iron
Pitch - 50x wood, 10x animal fat

Commodities Shops
Commodity shops are now mostly defunct, two remain in the lands (Luman village
and Zanzibaar isle) and these sell lacquer.

If a particular commodity in a particular shop is sold out, the price will
likely get raised when it is restocked. Similarly, if there is a large surplus,
the price will likely get lowered.
