I had a Phoenician merchant arrive at my city today, can you please tell me where he came from or who sent him. i did not exchange with him but it looks like another one is on his way in the morning.
Be honored that he hath stopped by your polis and dared exchange goods with you.
Be warned that he may come bearing unwanted gifts and other goodies.
Of course, there's always the option scaring the old man away and not letting him take your women and drink your wine.
However, if you're looking for some fun, let him stay at your palace, for he is oh so wise and mystical
Not many know of his origins, or even his name. They call him the Phoenician Merchant. Do not be fooled by this, for that is not his name at all. I do believe, if my sources are correct, that his name is... Larry.
Although he is mystical and magical and oh so wise, he shall not wreak havoc in your polis. He is a respectful and courteous old man who wishes only to trade with you at quite a bargain price.
Be careful tho, as he has caused your colony ship to be parked perpendicular, *** in your face, an ugly way. It's all Larry's fault! :'(
does any one know how to make him trade with me another resource besides stone, i have called him with gold about 5 times in last two days and every time he wants my stone. I have tried to create offers with market to hide my resources different ones each time. I tried that because people in my alliance told me it has something to do with what ever resource is your lowest. I dont want to spend my stone every time. Then i have to wait hours to trade out resources for the ones i need for him to come back and ask for all my stone again. I cant not do it either because im gaining at least 2400 resources every time. Just a pain to trade for the next few hours every time.
It just depends. Guess you've been pretty unlucky to use gold and carry on getting the same offer
Personally I would never use gold to get the merchant in I'd rather crazily farm, trade, trade, spell and beg friends for resources :L
If you feel like the merchant is useless at the time dismiss him and he'll come bit earlier next time. Unless I have too much silver I wouldn't buy troops with silver as it costs a lot! It's more effective to use a mix of resources to get the troops. The myth units are a rip off
