In Merchants of the Dark Road, you are one of these brave few merchants that travel the dangerous paths between cities. Discover the capital city where most of your actions will take place using a rondel action system. Collect and produce items to add to your caravan, or sell these items to local heroes and hire them to travel with you. Manipulate the market price of items, visit the back alley sellers, or delve a nearby dungeon for magical items to gain the potential for even more coin and notoriety. After all, what good is a purse full of the coin if the people don`t sing songs about you, and what good is a song with an empty mug of ale?
