PostSubject: Needing advices on Arabian Merchant !   Thu 3 Sep 2015 - 6:58

Hi guys , i recently got an Arabian Merchant in my lizardmen band , and the question is simple : how do you get the most of him ?

Did is stone cutter skill is worth it ? or do you give him other skills ?

Oi! I have asked that question myself. So what possible skills could he take? He is not a hero so he can not benefit from ANY academic skills as far as I can tell. He can not buy anything. He cannot haggle for anything because he cannot search for rare items or buy them. He can't search so he Streetwise is of no use... He doesn't cast spells so...

He starts with all the cool skills he needs. The bodyguard is, well, dumb, but taking that skill is your only option besides taking wyrdstone cutter.

As for cutter I have seen folks make money on that every round. I haven't been able to myself, but I have seen others. Or at least I heard them make the claim. [Never saw them make the roll for doing it, but they always claimed the maximum. I don't play with them any more...]

I liked the aArabian Merchant for my Arabian nomad warband. But he did not kake a lt of impact yet.
But I also played them only for four games.

I am in love with the concept of this hired sword. He will earn his loan by just buying cheaper and selling things higher and if he gets the stone cutter skill he costs roughly 1.75 gc less per round ( I prefer the body guard becaus he is another body for no costs)

Fo a warband like the Osterlanders he will earn his keep eveytime

If the Ostlanders could take him which I doubt. (They have odd HS rules, see Self Sufficient, Ostlander warband special rules.)
With most other warbands that can hire him, the Merchant pays for himself every game. (Especially in the Sartosa setting, oi!
