    Those are indeed a lot of fun. Are you running them from any particular city to put funds in the treasury?

    Aye, the trade deals are quite addicting. I'm not funding any particular coffers, I'm just trying to collect all of the city banners.

    These are not city banners from trade quests, they are city guild signs.

    You can buy city banners from the Guard Captains in each city as long as you have the right city loyalty and 250k gold.

    right but, as you said, you have to build city loyalty in order to buy a city banner. the trade quests give city loyalty and give perks like SOTs, guild signs, and resources to boot. one quest with multiple benefits. :)

    You must have been doing the quests on different chars to receive duplicate books I assume?

    Yes. Any item requested for a trade quest can be found in the city you accepted the quest from.

    Rumor has it, The Baker really likes pepperoni.

    so what does it take to get the guild signs? I received 1 right away but haven't go another one since. I have received enough favor in towns to buy city banners (sucks ya have to wait a week to get your next town banner). I have 3 City banners so far and have enough to get my next one already. I'm just having no luck getting the guild signs since the first. I've gotten plenty of ingots, which I turn right back in to the trade guy.

    I have gotten only two of the guild signs myself. I finally got every city banner however. I just love these missions. You might try running the longer ones killing all raiders that try to steal your goods. It takes longer but there is a chance that you may get a far better reward doing them.

    Killing raiders ONLY adds a higher gold amount to the city. It plays no part in what reward you receive.

    I just do the ones they give me and haven't kept up with the distance of them. I have probably done 50 or so trades so far. I'm wondering if luck hasn't anything to do with it?
