TRADE AND ECONOMICS
Q: Trading posts. What are they?
A: Trading posts are what makes the world economics spin. The trading post is a special type of building which allows players to exchange their goods. Its core functioning isn’t complicated: players are placing the goods in the trading post and set the price for them. Together, trading posts are emerging as an enormous system, where players can see the trade offers from every trading post in the Realm. However, if feudalists will decide to buy a specific item this way, they will have to move on to the territorial location of this trading post.
One will have to bring his gold to the post where the item is stored and conduct the trade there. In short, every trading post will show every trade offer, but only one post will be able to distribute the good from that specific offer.
And yes, medieval times are not to be called medieval without a certain risk, emerging out of nowhere. It’s fair to say, that goods stored are not safe and can be destroyed and partly looted by a guild you’re currently warring with if they succeed at raiding and destroying the Trade post.
And the last but not least. While transferring your goods to the destination point, always be on your guard: outlaws, brigands, and looters will always be happy to set an ambush, empty your caravan and even rip you off. Therefore, always care about security in your business trips: hire some tough fellows that can stand up for you or simply find another way to get to the needed Trade post.

Q: What is God's Favor?
A: God’s Favor is a premium in-game currency with multiple ways to spend. Using this currency, players can purchase unique cosmetic items in an in-game premium store, pay for a goods upkeep in a Trading post and widen their personal claims.
Q: What are Coins?
A: When interacting with a Trading Post and selling a high valued item to The Crown a player will get a certain amount of coins - the primary currency of the Realm.
There are currently 3 types of currency: bronze coins, silver coins and gold coins.
Q: What is The Crown?
A: It is the NPCs owned entity that holds control over the city in the center of the map and buys items from players. You can consider it as an euphemism for global economic system implemented in Life is Feudal: MMO.
