Helper Bots, Mirrors and Sex Changes

Good day merchants! A new shoppe Keep update has just gone live which includes a variety of fixes, some new features and a smashing new mirror in the player house to totally check yourself out.

Shoppe Keep Helper bots

First, the helper bots have received a massive upgrade to make them 300% more helpful. No longer should they refuse to acknowledge your orders or refuse to stock items. A gobliness engineer has been spending the last couple of weeks tinkering with the brain of these mechanical minions to make sure that they are an optimized object picking, thieve zapping restocking machine. They will now pick up five items at a time and when restocking they will no longer only stock the top item in their inventory, they will now cycle through items in their inventory to check if there is a space for it. Check them out in action below:

The Helper bot no longer requires fuel, oh no! Due to recent labor laws, these machines now are entitled to a minimum hourly wage. Depending on the job they are set, they will be paid a standard hourly rate which will be deducted from your finances. Thankfully, you can check your outgoings and incomings in the gold per minute section of the order scrolls stat area.

Are you struggling to answer the all-important question “Who am I?” well, look no further than your own player house and use the mirror to get a good look at yourself.Strut your stuff, pull some poses and look dapper!

Shoppe Keep: Mirror

Feel like this external vessel is not a true representation of your inner self, well simply go to the options menu and you will be able to change that too! Introducing the Female Shoppe Keeper!

Shoppe Keep: Keepers

It is normally quite dangerous to go outside at night. The town can be quite vicious after hours so it’s best not to keep your shoppe door open during these times. But I understand, you want to visit your house and chill after a long day at work. Thankfully in the back room there is a trap door that will take you straight to your house. You can avoid all sorts of nasty creatures that scour the town at night.
