You can trade surplus resources for needed ones at marketplaces. Clicking on a town's marketplace brings
up the Marketplace Window. One side displays your kingdom's resources. On the other side, are the
resources available at the market. Highlight the resource you want to trade, and the resource you want
to trade for. When two resources are highlighted, you may move the slider to the right to increase the
quantity of the resource to be traded. You may trade the maximum amount of your selected resource by
clicking the Maximum button. To complete the transaction, click the Trade button. Each marketplace
you control reduces the costs of trading.

When a scenario map is created, the map maker can create alliances between players. Using the
Marketplace, you can give resources to your enemies or allies. To do this, click on the Trade With Player
button. When you do this, a display of colored flags replaces the Market Resources portion of the
Marketplace Trade Window. Choose which resource you want to give, and set the amount using the
slider. Click the flag of the player you want to give the resources to, and then click the Trade button to
confirm the gift.
In Tower and Dungeon town types, the marketplace can be upgraded by building an artifact merchant.
When you build this upgrade, you can trade artifacts for resources, and resources for artifacts. To do this,
click the Trade Artifacts button. A selection of artifacts will be displayed — this selection will be the same
for all of your artifact merchants. Click the artifact you want to purchase. The cost for the artifact will
appear under all of the Kingdom Resources icons. Choose which resource you wish to trade, and then
click the Trade button to complete the purchase. Click the Sell Artifact button to sell artifacts carried
by the visiting hero. The hero's inventory will appear. Click the artifact you want to trade, select the
resource you want to trade for, and then click the Trade button.
In Stronghold towns, you can build a Freelancer's Guild as a marketplace upgrade. When it is built, you
can trade the visiting hero's armies for resources. To do so, click the Sell Creature button. The Kingdom
Resources icons will be replaced by a display of the visiting hero's troops. Click the troop containing
creatures you want to sell, then click the resource you want to trade for. Set the number of creatures you
want to sell using the slider, and then click the Trade button to make the sale.
