Raw commodities can be purchased at commodities markets via the bid ticket system, pillaged from merchant brigands, or simply be bought by setting a competitive buy price in the shoppe or stall, and waiting for either merchant brigands or players to sell these to the shoppe or stall. Refined commodities are manufactured from raw commodities at stalls or shoppes; these can be further processed into different commodities. Finished commodities have completed the manufacturing process and are ready for delivery.
