6.11 Commodity Shops

Commodity shops are special shops, run by and located in the villages that produce raw materials such as iron, silver, steel, leather, coal, cloth, and so on. These village shops each produce X quantity of commodity every Y period of time, and it's generally different for each village and each commodity. 

No village produces all of the commodities, and you'll find that prices will vary from village to village according to demand: If a particular commodity in a particular shop is sold out, the price will likely get raised when it is restocked. Similarly, if there is a large surplus, the price will likely get lowered. This creates the possibility of stocking up when prices are low, and then selling them via your own shop when prices have gone up.
