-What is the Shopkeepers' Guild?
The Shopkeepers' Guild is an informal group of shopkeepers who agree to abide by a single simple rule when selling items.

-What is the purpose of the Shopkeepers' Guild?
Player shops have slowly devolved to the point that they are nearly useless. Most shops' items are priced higher than NPC - and the time it takes to find the 1 or 2 (out of dozens) that are not overpriced is not worth the savings. The Shopkeepers' Guild is an attempt to combat this in a creative manner. It should result in a much better situation for both buyers and sellers.

-So what is the rule?
All common (purchasable at NPC) items must be priced at 80% or less than NPC price in your shop. For example, the maximum you could sell marseline would be 1200*.8 = 960, nanocarbon would be 2500 * .8 = 2000, etc.. A more complete list of prices will be posted in the future. You are free to price rare (items that cannot be purchased at NPCs) for whatever you like.

-So how do I join?
The last 3 characters of your advertisement must be exactly: "$KG". This will enable other members of the guild to quickly and easily recognize your shop when looking for goods, as well as being able to explicitly search out other members of the guild. I'd also recommend you PM me to be added to the list.

-What is to prevent people from breaking the rule?
A black list of players who add to the $KG to their advertisement, but do not abide by the rule, will be posted and maintained. All members of the shopkeeper's guild are strongly encouraged to never visit blacklisted shops. Similarly, any members who find another member breaking the rule are encouraged to report the user for black listing. Hopefully this list will not become too long.

-How did The Shopkeeper's Guild start?
Dire (http://www.pso-world.com/user.php?op=userinfo&uname=Dire) came up with the idea for the PSU Xbox 360 side of PSU on November 9, 2006. Unfortunately, the member has since then left PSOWorld, and the topic was abandoned.

What happens when a weapon that is worth a certain amount without any attatched element is synthed with a high percent or any element at all? Surely you agree that these items are worth more than thier NPC counterparts... Otherwise I think this is a great idea.

on the first page someone said that they found a 44% dark last survivor for 70k from someone with $KG in their ad, they seemed quite happy about it so i assume that they do that as well
