The courier station began as a tiny building for transmitting government documents and military intelligence, and eventually grew into a place for officers and merchants to eat and rest. Large courier stations can accommodate hundreds of guests and livestock.

Mysterious Merchant

UI Mysterious Merchant.png

The Mysterious Merchant always appears at the courier station at exactly 0:00 UTC. She will reappear more often after completion of upgrading buildings, training troops, and defeating barbarians.

On each visit, she will offer 16 items for purchase: 4x resources, 4x speedups, 4x boosts, and 4x other items. You can refresh her selection by pressing the "Refresh" button in the top-right corner of the window. You can purchase each item only once per visit per refresh. Refresh costs are as follows:

Refresh Cost
1st Free

3rd Resource icon gem.png 200
4th Resource icon gem.png 300
5th Resource icon gem.png 400

Food and Wood Items

The Mysterious Merchant also offers some shop items priced in food or wood instead of gems at a lesser discount of 10% to 40%, depending on the specific item. Food resources may be purchased only with wood, while wood resources may only be purchased with food. All other items randomly appear as costing either food or wood.

Buying resource items using resources is a common method to bank resources away as items for later use, where they cannot be plundered by other governors.
