A '''Hawker''' (also known as a '''Roadside trader''') is a vendor of merchandise that can be easily transported; the term is roughly synonymous with "peddler" or "costermonger." These traders never liked the competition with surrounding traders while working in bustling [[towns]], so they decided that the best way to increase their profit was to remove any competition. However, due to their lack of toughness, they decided that they would instead remove themselves from the competition since this option didn't require any brawling, and they thus set out to lead a nomadic lifestyle. They now roam the land of Godville, setting up their tents wherever they have detected gullible travelers passing by.
Hawkers carry a lot of heavy merchandise around with them so they prefer to appear out of nowhere at unmarked [[milestones]] so that they don't have to drag their stuff around for too long. Hawkers are greatly hated by [[{{heroes or heroines}}]] and [[{{gods or goddesses}}]] alike for when a hero stops by at a hawker's shop, it is as if they are stopping at a small town.
 
==Encountering a hawker==
{{diary|text = A trader's tent appeared out of nowhere. Wow, this is just too good of an opportunity to miss.}}
{{diary|text = Saw An eager merchant waved me over to his wagon, anxious for some business while his cartwright methodically repaired a shady trader by the road. Sat down by him to get out of the sunbroken axle.}}
Hawkers carry a lot of heavy merchandise around with them so they prefer to appear out of nowhere at unmarked [[milestones]] so that they don't have to drag their stuff around for too long. Hawkers are greatly hated by [[{{heroes or heroines}}]] and [[{{gods or goddesses}}]] alike for when a hero stops by at a hawker's shop, it is as if they are stopping at a small town. Most are unavoidable because not a lot of {{heroes or heroines}} can stand up to the hounding of a desperate trader, unless particularly only if they carry '''over around half of their inventory is full''' or are '''not too injured''' so they can go to a town to heal, should they be compelled to, anyway. They would only appear once in-between trading in towns, to give the {{heroes or heroines}} a chance to visit a tavern of their choosing to offload their pockets full of gold.
{{Heroes or Heroines}} who stop off at a hawker's tent do not [[pray]], are not healed (though will buy [[Healing Artifacts|healing supplies]]) and worst of all, can be idly stuck chatting with the hawker for around half an hour (even an hour in some cases,) giving a wandering master enough time to get the {{hero or heroine}}'s hard-earned [[gold coins]] on a measly [[skill]] upgrade. Needless to say, {{gods or goddesses}} do not appreciate their time and/or effort being wasted like this. The only consolation is that a {{hero or heroine}} lucky enough to be taken in while their inventory is bulging with [[Artifacts|loot]] can expect to make a lot more money than usual, as if they visited the town of [[Tradeburg]]. {{Heroes or Heroines}} also can take advantage of the hawker's brilliant bargains, getting discounts on [[equipment]] and healing supplies, but not on skills - that's not the hawker's expertise.
Note that like regular traders, they wonAlthough it't buy [[tribble]]s off of {{heroes or heroines}}rare, but unlike the same town traders they '''won't buy [[boss-monsterDaily Forecast|some days]] parts''' that could be used for have the {{hero or heroine}}'s [[lab]]roadside traders go on strike, regardless of whether {{he or she}} has one or meaning they will not - which is superb after one too many complaints of having their wills being crushed as it never made it to their creation appear at all outside of their very own bosstowns.
