Ul'rursh hands you a sack of coins. "Trade is important, especially in Bloodgard. You can send essential aid to your neighbouring settlements when they are in need. Similarly, you can ask for aid to be sent to your settlement when you are running low on key resources. This makes Trade & Commerce very powerful in Bloodgard." He hands you more sacks of coins "You'll be needing a lot of this to finance a strong and professional army."
"To trade you need Caravans, which are generated depending on the amount of Merchants you have working in your Markets. If you look at the top of the page, you will see the amount of caravans you have and the hourly accumulation of caravans." He moves his hand slightly, stretching his fingers, as he explains to you.
Signalling with his hands, Ul'rursh forms a table before you. "Pay attention, sometimes it is simple logic that alludes you."
- Resource: The type of resource listed
- Available: The quantity of each resource present in your settlement
- Rate: The quantity of each resource that 1 caravan can carry
- Needed: The amount of caravans needed to transport your resources
- Send: Insert the value of each resource you wish to send as aid
He smiles "In the case you want something worked out on this page, click on Calculate Caravans Needed once you have inserted the values of the resources you wish to send." He takes a moment of silence, probably to keep him awake from this tour which he has done so many times before. You can see how bored he looks, the only time he comes alive is at the mention of Heroes, Warlords, Armies and Monuments.
Once having overcome his desire to leave and sleep, he continues "Once you have clicked on Calculate Caravans Needed, you will see, in green, if you can send the resources or in red if you can't. You will also see the amount of caravans you need if you do not possess them at the time."
He spreads his arms, stretching them as far as he can and a Marketplace stretches out before him. Noise floods in and the scene comes alive. Moments later the Marketplace seems to be fast forward in time and before your eyes you see as a band of raiders come and torch the whole place. People are left without homes, farms and shops. Ul'rursh walks hurriedly with the people that seem to be migrating with what ever belongings they can find. You follow Ul'rursh. The people twist and turn, from one place to another, barren as the last, until they reach another Marketplace where they begin to settle in and start their lives all over again. "With a bit of patience, life can begin again, but there is always a cost, Stranger" Ul'rursh takes you back to the previous land, now that you understand.
