Using A Boost Runner To Order From A Player Shop

To use a BOOST RUNNER to purchase an item from a shop and deliver it to you:

  1. Withdraw a promissary note for the price of the item PLUS (+) 5,000 (this is the runner travel cost) and keep it in your hand
    • e.g: if the item is listed for 10,000, you need a note for 15,000 silver
    • NOTE: a note in the local currency is fine and does not require any exchange
  2. Type BOOST RUNNER to activate the runner. You now have 15 minutes to complete the purchase.
  3. Use SHOP BROWSE in-game to find your item
  4. Once you find the item:
    • In Stormfront you can simply click the item
    • Otherwise enter SHOP PURCHASE <item number>
