Buying metal from a city.
The bid for the metal trade.

Trading is used to acquire commodities and items from cities, NPCs, and other avatars.

Trading uses an auction and bidding system in the Comm (F3). The buyer commonly starts by asking if the seller has anything or something specific for sale. The seller then lists what is for sale, either as an auction where the buyer has to make a bid, or posted with a predefined price. Either way, the buyer can make any offer they believe to be fair, and then the seller has to accept the bid they want.
