dromad trader

A stoic, long-necked mancamel, this trader belongs to the race of mercantile desert-rovers who men call Dromad.

Perfect

Dromads are nomadic creatures that wander the world of Qud. They can be found just about anywhere in the world, from the player's starting village, to the deepest depths of the underground.

dromad traders are notable for their very large and diverse trade inventories.

Each dromad trader will generate with an associated tier, which is a number from 1 to 8 that is (with some exceptions) generally based on the zone tier in which the merchant appears. The merchant's tier controls the type and quantity of items that the merchant will stock.[1] The associated item tables can be found on the Tier-based merchant wares page.

Dromad Caravans[edit | edit source]

dromad traders almost always appear as part of a dromad caravan, which will include the trader along with 1-3 1-3 (Avg: 2) Great saltback.pnggreat saltbacks and 2-4 2-4 (Avg: 3) Caravan guard.pngcaravan guards.[2] The main exception to this rule is when the trader appears as a village merchant, in which case they will not appear with their usual caravan counterparts.[3]

Locations[edit | edit source]

Example dromad trader distribution from world generation.

Secret-based Locations[edit | edit source]

During world generation, 32 dromad traders will be placed randomly on surface zones throughout the western half of the world map. All of these pre-generated surface-zone dromad traders will be only tier 1 merchants, regardless of the zone tier of the zone where they appear.[4]

The location of these pre-determined dromad traders can be learned by trading secrets during the Water Ritual.

Village Merchants[edit | edit source]

The player's starting village will always be guaranteed to have a tier 1 dromad trader. When starting in Ovw joppa.pngJoppa, this will be the uniquely-named merchant, Tam dromad merchant.pngTam, dromad merchant.

All other procedurally generated villages in the world will have only a 30% chance to include a village merchant.[5] If present, that merchant will have an 80% chance of being a dromad trader (as opposed to a different type of creature acting as the village merchant). Village merchants in non-starting villages will inherit the regional zone tier of their village.[6] For example, a dromad trader in a Jungle.pngJungle village will have tier 3 trade goods taken from the Tier3Wares generation table.

Additional Locations[edit | edit source]

In addition to appearing on pre-determined surface zones or as village merchants, dromad traders can appear in dynamic encounters, including:[7][8][9][10][11]

Trade Wares[edit | edit source]

Each dromad trader will have a large collection of wares for trade, which are determined based on the dromad trader's tier.

You can view the tier-based tables for merchant wares on the Tier-based merchant wares page.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Caution: This article or section contains unverified speculation and should not be considered canonical.
  • The name "Dromad" most likely comes from the word dromedary, the name for one-humped or "Arabian" camels. It may also be a portmanteau of the word nomad, meaning a person who wanders from place to place without a home.
