Hello

I have a question.

When im looking at a planet or station, say the Qudru planet for example that is on the 22 page in the combined rulebook.

It say buys food, narcotics and slave. And sells fuel.

I assume that this is from the planets/space stations perspective.
Meaning that this planet want to buy food, narcotics and slaves from you.
Wich mean you can sell does 3 here.

And that they are selling fuel, wich mean that is the only commodity you can buy here.
And of course give the planet 1 Narcotic and recive back 3 foods.

Have I understood this correctly?


So its not that buy mean that is what you can buy, and sell is what you can sell to the planet/station

Yes, the buy/sell is from the planet's/station's perspective.

Using Qudru as the example (which can be seen in the top left of the image below), it will buy Food/Narcotics/Slaves from you for those prices, and will sell you Fuel.

Under the trading option, for each Narcotic you give to the planet you'll get 3 Food back. Sorry, had that backwards (I think).
The planet will give you 1 Narcotic for every 3 Food you trade in.
Had it right the first time.

thank you for the answer.

But regarding trades.
The rulebook say: give the ones on the left and recive the one to the right.

You're right, I guess I did have that correct the first time. I was looking at the MH rulebook which doesn't spell it out nearly as well as the Combined/Consolidated rulebook.

Yes, you have understood correctly.
The planet trade informations are informing what the planet (or spacestation) in question is willing to buy, sell and/or barter.

So, from Qudru you can only buy FUEL, that is correct.
And it's equally correct that should you barter one narcotics (eg. you give that to the planet) you'd get three food back.

so, clearly, Qudru is a lush planet which produces a lot of food and fuel, but has indulgent part of population in crave need of narcotics and
slaves.
