Sales still going well, if a bit sporadic.

The Blended T2 arrows are staying around more than a day now.

Artificer and Iconographers have been filling in their offerings.

And I wanted to thank all of you that have been selling me supplies in Thornkeep. I'll be updating that list shortly.

Remember, if you want something I don't have listed, let me know. Maybe I can make it.

Looks like I took a week off. I didn't, I just didn't post.

We have over 100,000 arrows in stock. Almost a quarter of them are T2.

I am suspending the Creation of Dwarven Steel arrows for a while as I think we have enough for the moment.

I have a second Boyer making the newer Blended arrows, though they're still hard to keep on the shelves.

I spent a few minutes this week trying to restock some of the items that had sold. I was only partially successful.

I would like to thank a number of people that have been selling to me at the Thornkeeep Auction House. It helps a lot.

As always, if you need something, please let me know.

First - Starchild, thank you so much.

And I do see you occasionally, so I'll start writing down my questions so I can overwhelm you when we are on together.

Thanks to all that came by TK and sold me stuff - I had 3 or 4 big sellers and I got a lot more stuff in my coffers now, but I always need more.

I have 10,000 Dwarven Steel Arrows in stock now and about 5,000 Dwarven Steel Arrows +1.

It helps when everyone is buying the cheaper Blended Arrows.

Continuing to expand what's available. Great deal of new weapons, so take a look.

I have about 2 platinum invested in the TK Trading Post, waiting for more of you to come by. I should update the Buying Post tomorrow.

This Is Maker of Maker's General Store - 10/13/18

I mentioned that I was buying. As of right now, I'm buying the following items.

I check the Thornkeep and Carpe Noctem Auction Houses almost daily.

Unfortunately, if you put a bid on all these things, it takes money and I'm running short, so there may not be bids on all these items, but there are on most of them in Thorn Keep and even if there is no bid, I'll be by in a day or two to buy them..

If there is no price associated with an item, it means I don't know what the item is worth yet.

I'll repost here if there is a serious change in this list.

PS - I am in need of a T2 Gemcutter Recipe Common +2 and a T2 Weaver Recipe Common +3.

I need these to advance my crafters to the next level, so willing to pay a bit more than they would normally be worth.

Maker
RichClark
I wanted to thank you for the nice comments.

New Prices are fully implemented and posted now. Most went up, but some of the T2s went down.

We're selling between 15,000 and 20,000 arrows each week. Everything else sells randomly, with no apparent pattern.

Current stock is about 70,000 arrows including over 10,000 T2 arrows.

Most of the T2 arrows in stock are Dwarven Steel, the demand for them dwindled when we started offering the cheaper Blended arrows.

We continue to try to expand our offerings. If there is anything specific that you want, please let me know.

The group is advancing nicely, we have a crafter in every field except Seneschal, with an average level just over 9 and I expect the average will hit 10 before the end of April.

I am also looking for a Mentor - someone that knows the answers to questions like "Where do Victory Marker's come from?" and "Is there really a player Trading Post Outpost that works like a real Trading Post?"

The things I don't know would fill a book (or two).

This should be an interesting post.

When I started here, you could buy simple T1 raw materials (gems, leaves, herbs) for about 10c. I used that in my calculations to decide what to charge for manufactured items.

Recently, I have been unable to find much at that price. What I am seeing is basic T1 raw materials are selling for 25c, basic T2 raw materials are selling for 50c and basic T3 raw materials are selling for 100c (when available).

This does not count premium raw materials such as Coal, Iron Ore, Ordered Essence and the like. I already had these at higher values.

I collect as much as I can, but when you manufacture as much as I do, you run out of key ingredients. I have bought raw materials to supplement what I collect and I plan to continue to do so.

What I have to change is the base values in my Cost Model.

But, while I'm doing that (inflationary) I decided to cut the markup I currently use (deflationary).

Presently, I add 50% to 85% to the base cost of materials when I set a price for an item. I'm reducing this to about 25% (something between 20% and 30%, whatever will give me a nice round number).

So, when I finish updating my Cost Model (sometime later this week), I will be changing prices on most of my goods.

Now, what this means to you.

- If you want to buy T1 good from me, get them this week. I expect most T1 goods will go up in price slightly.

- If you want to buy T2 goods from me, wait until next week. I already had 50c as the base cost of T2 raw materials, so I expect that reducing my markup will bring T2 goods down in cost.

If we ever start selling raw materials at the former prices, I will consider dropping my prices accordingly (but that is a real pain to do, so don't bet on it).

Good Day All,

You should find a wider variety of stuff in the stores.

I was able to start making the Iron Infused T2 arrows, so those are available as well as the Dwarven Steel arrows.

You should also find a smattering of other T2 items. My current average crafter level just reached 9.

The Armorsmith is still closed, but I hope to have her open sometime Sunday. For some reason, the building exploded every time my Armorsmith tried to put it up. So I'm getting a new Armorsmith.

Oh yes, the buildings are back - in "final" order - all except for the Armorsmith.

To head off any rumors - no, I am not leaving Carpe Noctum.

When I originally set up the shops, I was unaware of what side of the buildings the doors were on.

So I'm rearranging them now, so it makes more sense, putting Armor Smith across from Weapon Smith and Iconographer across from Artificer.

The three buildings that are still there are where they appear in the revised plans. I guess we we're just lucky that I didn't want to move the Boyer.
