    4. @comradeconventrix Pretty much any vendor in a game is some kind of super-capitalist. Where they keep finding all these goods is a mystery, but they always seem to be able to sell exactly what you need.

    5. @comradeconventrix Probably quite high. Unless, of course, you're playing Recettear (capitalism, ho!), in which case you _are_ the merchant, and barely even scrape by for quite a while.

    6. @comradeconventrix Essentially, yes; once you have enough money, you can hire adventurers (for X amount of money) to actually go dungeon-crawling for you, which nets you Y value of items, which can reliably be sold for Z amount of money, where X < Y < Z. (You, as the player, can also control these adventurers on said dungeon crawls, but that's not really the core game.)

    7. @comradeconventrix I also love how base the main characters motives are; it's not about saving the world, making the townspeople's lives better, or anything like that. It's about one thing: getting more money. (Admittedly, it's initially to pay off her father's debt, but it's not like she stops once you reach that goal.)

    8. @comradeconventrix I would imagine so, yes.

      1. @bitshift *sees game title* That game was fun D: *goes back to reading entire thing*

    10. @comradeconventrix Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale. I know you can get it via Steam, not sure where else.

    11. @comradeconventrix Ah, there we go. http://www.carpefulgur.com/recettear/purchase.htm has the links, it's on Steam, Impulse and Gamersgate. And yes, it's a lot of fun. Definitely worth a look, at least. :)

    12. @comradeconventrix HOWEVER. First things first, I'd recommend the demo (here: http://www.carpefulgur.com/recettear/downloads.htm), since that takes you all the way to the end of the semi-tutorial segment, which will give you a pretty good idea whether you'll like the whole thing.

    13. @comradeconventrix Oh, also, her name is pronounced with a hard C. This _is_ relevant, but I'll let you find out why, because it's more fun that way. :)
