Lords Online adds stock market
Lords Online has added a new system called the Stock Function.
The system includes stocks from various Alliances, with players able to buy and sell stocks through the new stock interface. Players can search for specific Alliances, or browse Alliance listings. Players can check Market Quotes (trading price, put/call rate, trading time, ceiling price, and base price), their shares (including last traded, amount, principal, bonus, and action), and entrustment options. Alliance stock must be first obtained by donating gold to the Alliance.

The Original Press Release:
Lords Online: New Stock Function Gives Traders Tools for Success
War is an expensive endeavor. With the new Stock Function coming to Lords Online, players will have the tools they need to raise extra capital and help fund their plans of conquest. Alliances will have stock, and players will be able to buy and sell stocks through a user-friendly trading interface. Manage your portfolio for maximum profit and flex your financial muscles to keep your armies ready for action.
The Lords Online Stock Function is part of the Alliance system. When trading stocks, players can search for a specific Alliance or browse the listings. The trading interface includes three main pages: Market Quotes, My Shares, and Entrustment. Players can also find stock info for fellow members in the Alliance interface.
The Market Quotes section lists the stock info for each Alliance, including the Trading Price, Put/Call Rate, Trading Time, Ceiling Price, and Base Price. Green text represents a price increase and red represents a decrease.
In My Shares players can see what stocks they own. It displays detailed info for each stock, including the time it was last traded, Amount, Principal, Bonus, and Action.
Build a Fortune or Lose Your Shirt
The Lords Online Stock Function imitates real world stock exchanges. The value of each stock is decided by the market trades. To obtain Alliance Stock, players need to donate some gold to their Alliance. Once they have some stock in hand, players can choose to keep their shares and wait for a better trading price or sell them for gold to help develop their troops and infrastructure.
Be careful, though, because there is always a risk involved. The higher a stock’s bonus, the greater the risk, so before you invest in a stock you should make sure you assess its affordability and the level of risk you are willing to take.
