The market

« back

The market is a vital source of supplies and money for your village. Several of the crops you can grow are cash crops; you can grow and sell these in times of plenty to bring in money for buying staple food during times of need, as well as using the money to pay for workers and specialists and providing a more varied diet for the people.

There are several things you need to know about how prices work on the market if you’re not to get burned. Always try to buy when prices are low and sell when they’re high!

Being well aware of the foibles of the market will make a big difference to how well you can look after the people, so keep a close eye on it at all times. Be warned, however - it can be very tempting to sell large quantities of rice or other crops when you have them, and exchange them for more valuable luxuries such as tea and sake. Always try to keep plenty of basic foodstuffs in stock though.
