    The Sims Medieval Merchant

    The Merchant hero Sim in “The Sims Medieval" is the Sim that sells items at the Kingdom’s market. They are able to save your Sims quite a bit of time from having to go the Village Shoppe. They love to make large profits of Simoles and highly enjoy having the best of the best when it comes to their décor.

    Special Abilities

    The heroes in “The Sims Medieval" have special abilities that only they are able to do. They also use special items in the game that they can interact with to help them advance and gain experience points.

The merchant can view the “Hot Items" of the day at the Village Shoppe and then purchase those for their market. Sims buy these quickly and your hero makes a rather nice profit from doing so. They are also able to stock up on anything that is purchasable from the Village Shoppe to add to their stalls. To sell items at the stalls, the merchant needs to interact with their customers and butter them up or even bribe them to get them to buy their goods. The higher your merchant’s level, the easier it is to get customers to purchase goods.

     

    The merchant is also able to trade with foreign neighbors by using the ship at the docks. Find out what the neighbors want, and put that one the ship to gain what they offer for those items. Your merchant can then sell it at their stalls for a large profit.

     

    The Sims Medieval Merchant can use the scribe table to balance their books. This is really just good for generating some quick experience points to help your hero to level up.
