Newbie question about shops

Is the economy entirely player driven?

Newbie question about shops

Postby RedShine » Mon Sep 12 2016 5:01am

I started playing the forum RPG a few weeks ago (very nicely done by the way, when I first saw this on the forums I thought it was just one of those forum areas where people roleplay, and instead I'm pleasantly surprised to find what I like to call Shining Force Mini).

Anyway, I made a wizard as my first character (not the best choice for a starter character, I know, but what can I say, I'm a fan of casters) and I'm Lv 11 now. Sadly all that I could find available up to this point was Lv6 armor and while it served me well up to Lv9 or so, I'm now starting to feel the defense deficit.

The question I'd like to ask is if shops restock on gear on their own, or if the available equipment depends entirely on player driven transactions with the shops as a sort of middleman.

Bonus question: can I share items between different characters of mine?

lol, most characters need to be pumped up with the protect milk and also power water.
I don't think the spells are powerful enough to wipe out enemies in 2 hits unless you are willing to use a lot of fairy tears :)

You can also share items between other characters as long as they can use it like spears for the knights and swords for bowie and ninja etc :)
Ah must be you buying the apples at the shop?? haha

The economy is kinda player driven. There aren't too many active participants these days, as many of us got what we wanted out of the game and maxed out our collections a while back. That said, SaCred and Alex_man play vigourously, so you could maybe strike up some trade deals with them or something.

On the equipment front: Given that we still get members finding the shop for the first time occasionally, I've asked Moogie if she wouldn't mind restocking the weapon and armour shops to give late-comers and anyone else struggling with a lack of weapons a better chance to get through the game. I'm just waiting to see what she says on it.

@Sacred: Yes, I buy them when I see them (mostly as a failsafe to dying, since reviving has become prohibitively expensive past Lv9 considering my limited funds. I'm not exactly hawking for them though.

@Stordarth: Thank you, this would be helpful. There is no need to take care of this in a hurry though, I know where are other priorities both regarding life outside the forums and also in here.

@Alex_man: Thanks! I'll be in touch whenever I need one.
