The economy of RavenQuest is driven entirely by the players. With a massive Tradepack and Shipping system built with a self-balancing supply and demand algorithm, players are free to bring a variety of valuable goods all across the world. Whether you choose to bring your goods by ground or by sea, you play an active role in a constantly moving and changing economy.

The Tradepack System is a major economy system in RavenQuest. It is how a significant amount of the Silver is generated in RavenQuest.

Tradepacks are simply a package of products put together by a player, and by transporting them to a Tradepost, the player will obtain Silver and at times other rare resources in exchange for the Tradepack.

A Tradepack can be created with dozens of different combinations of materials that can be obtained & gathered by exploring the world — or through Estates. Almost any material in the game, eggs, milk, wheat, ore or lumber can be used to create different Tradepacks.

To create a self-sustainable economy environment, we knew we had to recreate an organic real world supply and demand system. Our Tradepack System (a core economy cornerstone) has been fully developed with this self-balancing supply and demand algorithm to simulate a real world market. There is no external interference — the community is responsible for every single resource gathered and item crafted in-game.

Around the map, there are places called Tradeposts. These Tradeposts are where packs can be created — once you have the materials, and also turned in for Silver. These Tradeposts simulate a real world market, with supply and demand, creating a self-balancing economy system for virtually all the resources in the world of RavenQuest. When a certain type of Tradepack is traded more between certain Tradeposts, the demand for this resource goes down, and so the amount of Silver earned for trading these packs. Further, when a Tradepost is traded with more players, their demand for products goes down, and they will pay less Silver as well. However, when one product or Tradepost has lower demand, the value and demand of all other products and Tradeposts goes up! If the player delivers a Tradepack with products in high demand to a Tradepost with high demand, it means that he will get a higher amount of Silver. Players will be able to check the demand/supply of all resources in every Tradepost in the game at any time, allowing them to decide if they wish to take the safe travel through the fields carrying the iron ore from your latest mining trip, or taking the dangerous voyage across the ocean for a higher demand trip to enjoy extra profit.

Tradepacks can be heavy to carry, and therefore they influence the speed of the players around the map, slowing it down. To speed up the process of transporting Tradepacks and to ensure a safer trip, the players can choose to carry them in Wagons (pulled by mounts) or in Ships. ​Mounts, Ships & Wagons are also NFTs and you can find more information about it on their own sections!
