Overview of Mod - ( See forums on Elder Scrolls.com - or else read on)
This mod adds Traveling Traders, Traveling Merchants, with pets/guars/merchant guards covering areas of Cryodiil. The traveling merchants walk around the wilderness close to each town, inn, farm, roads, back roads, shrine,or priory. They will sell you items - weapons, armor, food, staffs, alchemy ingredients & equip, clothing, lockpicks(rogues&archers), spells(Wizard) & Potions and if all in stock(%). Some can repair, recharge, sell spells and Rogues will buy stolen goods. They are a Neutral Faction, and do report crimes committed against them. Guards will fine you now, All Merchant Guards and Pets - Guars have been imported from across the border, will attack back!!
This Also Bring Alive the quest talked about in Mage Guild - Anvil Recommendation, but, does not affect this quest in anyway. With Traders traveling within Each Region. It gives the appearance of a Merchants delivering goods to those NPCS good/evil that do not leave areas, Shrines, Farms, Inns, and Such. Just in appearance?(they could be trading & and some can be found dead once in a while).
Faction and Storyline 2 Choices of Faction Type Now Good or Neutral
Good Faction (Default Now)- They are no longer aligned with any bandits, marauders, creatures, necromancers, etc..These types will now attack the Merchants when they travel the road, locations, etc...and Merchants will attack these npcs/creatures back if they are in the way!!!! The faction friendship is no longer present if you want that then choose the factionall..Compatible with All MODS
Optional Plugin - Faction All.esp - Neutral faction does not fight with creatures, bandits, marauders, conjurers, and necromancers etc..There is a 100% relationship with each of these factions to preserve friendship. Also allows them to talk with those NPCS. With these settings in play. The player has to battle to get to traders and sell the loot that they just picked up at some locations. This leads to Better game play. ( Changes are made to Default Factions to do this see versions below or is change does not work with all mods)
StoryLine Changes - Due to recent conflicts with the Thieves guild and the Law. The following contracts have been resigned - The Roaming Traders Members are not allowed to buy stolen only the Roaming Rogues will only buy stolen goods. The Thieves guild was not very happy about this, and certain members passed slipped documents to the The Imperial Government!!!!. Someone from the outside, maybe the Gray Fox. The Imperial Goverment was forced to take actions against the Roaming Traders Faction. The Roaming Traders faction have to obey the law now/theives guild law. Or else the guild will get kicked out of Cryodill
24/7 Buy/Sell Items - There is now a new 100% working script that control this thanks to Scruggsy and XCom. They will now buy/sell items when traveling from location to location. You must stop them and activate them normally.
They are now killable, they will respawn in 3 days and travel to next location. Please be aware all Merchants now explode into fire once killed (to simulate magicial items being broken/destroyed) - Thanks Xcom once again for this.
They will also display a message in the left hand corner of screen " Hey, Watch Out" When hit. This is to help tell them apart from Bandits, Marauders, Etc. When attacking from long distances, or in close range combat. Will be displayed once
Combat Notes ( All Merchants / Bodyguards / Pets respawn in three days!!!!)
Player vs Trader Combat is not suggested/not recommend results in lower prices & crime penalty. Traders are here to help you not hurt you.All Roaming Traders Classes respawn after 3 day if killed, If you attack them pets will attack back If you attack Pets/Guards they will attack you back. Pets/Guards are owned by Merchants and assualt on them count has crimes.
You will get no benefit of Fighting/Killing them. This will lower their disposition toward you and count has a crime,making items more expensive to buy from them, (maybe even shutting down services)?. Meaning that you will have to persuade, bribe, or use a spell to fix this. If you are combat with them, you can yield to them and make them stop. But Combat is not suggested, unless you really want to. The Imperial Legion will fine if you caught doing anything to the Merchants and Pets!!!!
Pick pocketing/Stealing Items - Merchants only carry clothing & food , If you get caught it is a crime now!!!
Class Details Item sold/bought and Pets (Items respawn in 3 days)
Traders Gold is now set 1200 for all. You can install Living Economy Mod if you need more gold to barter with.
All Roaming Classes now have an Mercantile Skill which varies class to class/race to race. And Raises has you go up in levels. So Prices will vary depending on each class/ race and your infamy / fame/ murders / assaults, etc ..Remember to Haggle.
Classes buy/sell these items - clothing,jewelry, potions, poisons, food, alchemy ingredients & equipment, soul gems, lock picks, repair Hammers, scrolls, unless noted below and if in stock (%). Roaming Wizard only sell Spells, Archers sell magic arrows only, Rogues buy stolen good only.

If they are killed in combat they will respawn and travel to that location 3 days away. Pets/Merchant Guards follow Owners wherever they go for now will change when eat/sleep routines are added in.

Design Notes - This mod is driven by Radiant Ai - There are Radiant Ai packages that control travel from location to location, follow/accompany , use item packages fixer for weapons, clothes and armor so that when you buy them, they do not disappear from the Traders, and they walk around without such items (They now have clothing in case of use item package fails). A new script that control 24/7 serivces calls an Radiant AI Package. Radiant AI Packages Locations alone take up almost half of the mod.
Merchants will now Eat at Night once again this runs from 8 hours every night and runs everyday, Stools have been placed at all locations used by Merchants, this means that you will find stool out in the open out beside the road, shrines, etc..Some Merchants may elect to choose some other location to eat and than these stool..If they find a better spot to eat at night..Aslo added 2 new features at Weye and Skingrad..
