We are currently performing an upgrade to our software. This upgrade will bring MediaWiki from version 1.31 to 1.33. While the upgrade is being performed on your wiki it will be in read-only mode. For more information check here.
Shops works as other shops in different games. In Sunless Sea you can buy or sell your goods if a specific shop is interested in them.
You can only find Shops when you are docked at Ports.
