Pawnshops are places where adventurers can buy and sell general goods. Each pawnshop has a "front room" to SELL items to the pawnbroker and a "back room" to BUY items recently sold by others. The front/back distinction is based on the traditional layout of Kilron's pawnshop in Wehnimer's Landing; other towns may instead display the "back room" items before the shop entrance.

Each pawnshop back room has four display tables:

  • Weapons
  • Armor
  • Magic/Arcane
  • Miscellaneous/Goods

To browse the items, use the command LOOK ON {CATEGORY} table. For example, LOOK ON WEAPON TABLE to see the available weapons. The names of the "magic" and "miscellaneous" tables may differ between shops; "arcane" and "goods" are frequent alternatives. GET or APPRAISE an item from a table to check its price, and BUY to finalize the deal.

To prevent selling valuable items by mistake, use the MARK verb.

Some items may not be worth anything to the pawnbroker, and can be disposed of in a trash bin, barrel, or coffin found in the front room.
