Coursair Trading Post

While the Corsairs are not beyond raiding also are willing to trade goods for gold, silver, gems, or anything generally shiny.

Their goods are quite varied. You'll find nearly anything that can be found on Arda... and even some things not of this world. Need a pair of jeans? roller skates? A lightsaber? Ask them to check the back room.

Aside from their usual bases in Dol Amroth and Havens of Umbar, occasionally they will sail around to the coastal cities and make trade there as well. Remember, these are not the most fair of people; prices are high to begin with, and even higher for a specialty item.

There are two ways you can trade with the corsairs:

1 - Travel to Dol Amroth or The Havens of Umbar: Here you can trade at any time for the standard list of items, or request something specific. Special requests may take time to get their hands on, or may not be found at all.

2 - Occasionally the Corsairs will travel along the coast, or further inland looking for trade. The mods will make an announcement regarding when and where the corsairs be available for trade. At this time you can trade the standard list of items, a set of extra items that are in stock at that time, or request something specific.

Keep in mind that they corsairs are always looking for a trade in their favor, and special requests are often expensive. The negotiation is threaded out OOCly on this page.

Character name: Mahanon Lavellan
What you're looking to get: Aviator Sunglasses
What you can offer in return: One spirit resistance ring. It's silver.
What do you have on your person: He has one more ring if needed, but he'd be less likely to part with two for such a small item.
tshoktharuktha: Aztshuktha is amused (smirk)

[personal profile] tshoktharuktha 2015-08-20 10:15 am (UTC)(link)
Character name: Aztshuktha
What you're looking to get: The knife and firestarter would be good. Also twinkies because hell yes pastries even if they're kind of crappy pastries, but also easy calories are good for travel. He'd definitely be interested in the compass if they advertise its function, although IDK if he has anything valuable enough to entice them to make that trade.
What you can offer in return: Any coins, silverware, other valueable-but-not-survival-critical things he's picked up while exploring around the Nogrod area. Also, copies of his own detailed maps of the Nogrod region and less-detailed maps of the lowlands based on a Nogrod vantage point, since they're new to the area.
What do you have on your person: Lightly-enchanted (in D&D terms I think it was +2 hit/damage) long sword. Whatever survival supplies he's collected around Nogrod.

[personal profile] questionablewit 2015-08-22 10:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Character name: Hawke
What you're looking to get: Beach ball, the strange compass.
What you can offer in return: Coin (I only listed 'A little money', we'll have to figure out how much; knowing Hawke it could be any amount, including gold), two vials of poison (Fell Poison? I'm sorry now I wasn't specific). She'll trade only coin for the beach ball; it's just a beach ball. If the compass interests her enough she'll do more for it, possibly.
What do you have on your person: Elfroot potions. She might be willing to part with one given that there are healers around. Extra knives, less likely.

What you're looking to get: Arrows, vegetable seeds, suspiciously perfect apple
What you can offer in return: The pelt / meat of deer or wolves, and if they prefer another animal she can offer to attempt to hunt that animal instead. Elfroot, spindleweed, and embrium, and their seeds. If they're willing to wait, she can offer to come back with poison or healing potions.
What do you have on your person: Her set of armor, bow and quiver with arrows, a lothlorien brooch, a dagger. She also has dried and pressed flowers? She can make them flower crowns if they really want???

What do you have on your person: She has nothing.

Added bonus!

Character name: Julien Sakazaki
What you're looking to get: The antibiotic pills and the drill. Also, special requests! Scissors. And general medical supplies more advanced than the ones from Minas Tirith. He's particularly interested in syringes, the kinds that can flush a wound or deliver an oral dose but injection types too, and ways to take someone's temperature.

and if he gets to talking he may express a desire for a chaise longue/sofa bed/mamasan/furniture he can really use. Julien would also like to ask how these items are obtained and he has a little ability to read people - no one will tell him how, but do the people he could ask even know?
What you can offer in return: Random coins and jewelry and an engraved silver handmirror from Minas Tirith. A blue-black cloak with very tiny crosses of glowing spidersilk stitched into it. Humans have to be pretty close to see them, and they resembles stars a bit. Julien can offer similar embroidery for other cloth, but not while anyone is watching.
What do you have on your person: Julien flew over with a pack on and left most of his stuff in the Deepwood. Aside from the above and like food and water he only brought a few feet of glowing silk in a bobbin, some needles, and the inlaid box he brought the jewelry in.

Character name:
What you're looking to get: The Butterfly Sword (note that it's not actually a very good sword, just a weird shiny gimmick), possibly a ziplock bag.
What you can offer in return: Money, any herbs or odds and ends gathered up in Annuminas and Michael Delving, a promise to look for things inland where corsairs don't go themselves and give them first opportunity for trade (and she does have a profound knack for finding Odd Things)
What do you have on your person: More money, but nothing else for this. It's for a gag wedding present, not something she's willing to trade a lot for.

What you can offer in return: Ongoing collaboration - working inland in areas the corsairs don't generally go
What do you have on your person: Some hobbit tchotchkes from Michel Delving

Character name: Beleth Lavellan
What you're looking to get: Mallorn seeds
What you can offer in return: A necklace of dexterity, a ring of health, a collection of various herbs from Thedas, and pelts / meat.
What do you have on your person: The only other things she has are her weapons, armor, and her hart--none of which she'd be eager to give up. If none of the items are enough, however, she's willing to work with them--if they have something they want that she can get a hold of, she'll be willing to give it a go.

[personal profile] elfstoned 2016-01-17 12:02 am (UTC)(link)
Character name: Aaron Strider
What you're looking to get: The stethoscope, and I wouldn't be adverse to one of those "BITCH YOU IS FINE" bears thrown in. He'd also inquire about blue jeans, or similar cloth pants that are tougher than normal but aren't, you know, leather. Bonus points if they're too small for him but would fit Arwen
What you can offer in return: Weed, athelas, spider-silk thread of both glowing and non-glowing varieties.
What do you have on your person: Ha, nothing he'd be willing to trade for. The ring of Barahir, Anduril, the Lorien-cloak, all of those are important. He's got the other clothes on his back and the horse he rode in on, plus its tack. I don't know, maybe a pouch of other healing herbs.

doing it so right

Oh dear merciful everything, Kaito wants that chocolate

[personal profile] stealsyourheart 2016-02-01 01:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Character name: Kaito Kuroba
What you're looking to get: the chocolate
What you can offer in return: Kaito is almost but not quite willing to trade his first born child for that chocolate but more realistically, he has playing cards, multicoloured scarves, smoke bombs and sleeping gas that he'd be willing to trade. Or, if you want to play this for something odd, he would be QUITE happy to play poker with them for the chocolate. Warning, he cheats.
What do you have on your person: He has so much. SO MUCH. The torch, lockpicks, card gun (& ammo), his pidgeons, alternative outfit and roses he won't trade for anything, but if they can do anything with glitter, tiny flags, makeup, hair dye, or defunct miniature camera bugs he can be talked around.

Character name: Julien
What you're looking to get: Tea tins, some of the heart candy.

Special request, via Beleth: Mallorn seeds. Not for him, but he wants to know if they can get their hands on any and what they'd want for them.
What you can offer in return: Copper bits, trinkets, miscellaneous coins and jewelry picked up from here and there. A tiny corked bottle with a coiled braid of glowing amber-stained spider silk inside, on a cord so it makes a necklace. Which glows gold. He'll say he's reluctant to part with that one.
What do you have on your person: Like last time: Julien flew over with a pack on and left most of his stuff in the Deepwood. Aside from the above and like food and water he only brought a few feet of glowing silk in a bobbin, and some needles.
