The Trader is an old man who is involved in the player-owned port. He will trade excess resources for trade goods. For example, he may have a stock of 10 Chi at 3125 Cherrywood each. His stock and offer change daily. He will offer either 5 Koi Scales/Pearls, 10 Chi globes/Lacquer/Plate, or 15 Ancient Bones/Spices. He can ask for resources to which you do not yet have access to. According to his concept art, he is also known as the Merchant.

He can be found near the lodgings next to the wooden showers.

TriviaEdit

Ports 2 trader concept art

Concept art for the Trader

  • On release day, if the player had already logged in pre-update, the trader was glitched making it impossible to trade with him, both by using the right-click option or by talking to him. This was fixed quickly. Other players were not affected.
  • Until 11 August 2014, the Trader would not offer Pearls and Koi Scales, nor ask for Terracotta and Azure.
  • Unlike all the other NPC's in Player-Owned Ports, his real name is unknown.
