- "A mysterious trader has been spotted on the outskirts of our kingdom. There are reports of citizens visiting him with large sacks of gold" and leaving with smiles on their faces and small pieces of paper (or some such).
"The mysterious trader has parked his wagon in a dark alley, and will soon be open for business. You have learned that he will ask you for (many thousands) gold for his wares. You still don't know what he is offering."
Not sure what is up with this guy yet.
I didnt have the money so I got this...
"The mysterious trader has packed up his wagon, now heavy with gold. He has slowly moved on to the west, and nobody seems to know when he will return."
Ok, the rumor on this one is that buying his goods allows you to buy land cheap, and get inflated offers to buy your land at higher value than normal, for ONE YEAR.
