Trade Goods

Bulk goods for trade


While characters aren’t likely to be traders in this campaign they will occasionally come across trade good or need to acquire goods for the rebellion. This list values everything by tons, volume assumes most cargo vessels have 1 cubic meter available for every ton (a YT-1300 was listed with about a third of this amount).

Supply and demand factors impact trade bargaining based upon whether the planet in question has the good in abundance or short supply. Bargain modifier gives the advantage to the person working from a position of advantage. The difficulty to find a buyer or seller represents a day of effort in a given week, trying to find a second buyer/dealer in the same week adds 5 to the difficulty (after a week it can be assumed new people have become available).

Supply Bargain Modifier Finding a Buyer Finding a Seller
Very Low 10 to seller 25 5
Low 5 to seller 20 10
Standard no modifier 15 15
High 5 to buyer 10 20
Very High 10 to buyer 5 25

The roll to find a buyer or seller can be different skills depending on what is sought.

Goods which are illegal add 10 to the difficulty to find a buyer or seller and give the seller another 10 point advantage (Black Market). Goods which are believed to be stolen add 5 to difficulty to find a buyer or seller unless also illegal and give the buyer a 5 point advantage if not illegal (Gray Market).

Volume sales tend to favor the buyer. A character wishing to make a bulk purchase or sell a bulk lot of merchandise will gain or grant a modifier as shown below.

Lots of 10 or more: 1D bonus to purchaser’s bargain roll.
Lots of 100 or more: 2D bonus to purchaser’s bargain roll.
Lots of 1,000 or more: 3D bonus to purchaser’s bargain roll.

Standard Merchants

Merchants buy and sell for a living, but unless they are dealing with high end items the amount of haggling skill needed is not great. As a general rule when haggling is appropriate the asking price is 3 times the standard cost, in areas where haggling isn’t allowed prices should be set by GM (usually list price if not restricted).

For those who deal in large volumes use the value of their normal volume sale (a supplier of power packs is only selling a 25 credit item, but if they normally sell in lots of 1,000 to mercenary companies they deal in 25,000 credit deals).

Normal Sales Volume Average Bargaining Skill
100 credits or less 3D
1,000 credits or less 4D
10,000 credits or less 5D
100,000 credits or less 6D
1,000,000 credits or less 7D
10,000,000 credits or less 8D
Over 10 million 9D

Variable skill – the GM can use the average skill level or roll for random variation using 1D6 to determin actual skill level.

1: Below average by 1D
2-4: Average Skill
5: Above Average by 1D
6: Above Average by 1D6 more dice
