Merchant is a tycoon style game based in a fantasy RPG. Instead of controlling the hero of the story, you control the merchant that the hero buys and sells goods from. You will be responsible for helping the heroes by selling them things they need, while buying all of the items they do not want. The heroes are persistent characters in game, so they will return to you if you keep them happy.

Say hello to Grok! Grok is the first character you will meet in Merchant, and possibly the best of them all.

Grok is ready!



Grok is a special hero.

Grok likes fish. So much in fact, he used a magical weapon enchantment on one. Now its his weapon. Grok likes many things that he doesn't use. Gems are among them. Grok doesn't know that you can craft gems into items to make them magical. He just likes that they are shiny.



Grok also likes helmets with horns on them. During his adventures, he collects horns and antlers to put on his helmet. He uses them to store all of the magical rings he finds along the way.
Grok has known from an early age that he was doomed to die in the battlefield, so he uses his own gravestone as a shield.


Did I mention Grok is our favorite? He is also the one who walks you through the introduction to the game. He is the first Hero you will encounter in your experience in Merchant, and is very attached to you (after you sold him his favorite fish!). Grok will seek you out when he buys and sells goods, so it will be up to you as the player to help him along his way.



Will you be able to keep Grok safe and help him to become the hero of the realm?

That's awesome! The Elder Scrolls series was certainly one of the inspirations for this game, and we love to hear any comparisons to something as stellar as Skyrim!
