    Hi Chaps!

    Been thinking long and hard about a shard move. Europa sadly is becoming more a ghost town when it comes to trading and I'm just not getting the thoughput.

    What I was wondering was...

    Whats the RP scene like on here?
    Is there space for another small time trader here?
    Whats the chances of a house just outside Luna, if so how much can I expect to spend to buy it?
    Which guild is good for some PVM and some 'red' protection?
    and finally what time is the 'prime time' for here?

    Thankies :)

    Hello Salivern :)

    i am positive I am not the best person to answer your questions as I do not RP or PvP, nor run a vendor.

    However, I do see people all the time on Chessie, and do bump into people while out and about.

    As far as a trader, i think that if you have the right items, price your items right, and properly advertise, you can do very well. I personally enjoy my 'shopping trips', but refuse to pay 'Luna Prices' fro the items i want, but when I do find a vendor outside luna that has decent items at decent prices, I mark a rune and place it in my 'shopping book' so that when I do want to do some shopping, I know where to look.

    Hope to see you on Chessie soon.

    I think there is definitely a niche for a small time trader here. A lot of vendors are currently run-down or neglected, and I feel that someone with good business sense could pinpoint which parts of the market are most needed, and then set up a few vendors to cover them. With some good marketing in Luna, I think a small time trader could do very well.

    Here is some information on the shard. It is being worked on so not fully complete. http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=164673

    If you would like we have our All Shards tavern Night on Tuesdays at 9pm EST at the Iron Bandit Inn in Kijustsu Anei. We hope you can come.
