Pawnbrokers are NPCs that buy goods from players. The price is generally far lower than the actual worth of the item being sold, but it is a good way to make some money off unwanted items, or selling in bulk for profit (such as selling a batch of Gems). Pawn Brokers can be found in most towns and cities, and players can build Pawn Broker buildings. Pawn Brokers are somewhat similar to Consigners, but goods are paid for immediately by the Empire rather than waiting for a player to purchase.
Pawn Brokers are nicknamed "PBs" in-game.
Pawnbrokers pay a proportion of the item's value based on it's "Imperial Price". The amount paid per item sold is as follows:
|Building||% of Imperial Value|
|Tier 1 Pawn Broker||12.5%|
|Tier 2 Pawn Broker||15%|
|Tier 3 Pawn Broker||17.5%|
|Tier 4 Pawn Broker||20%|
|Tier 5 Pawn Broker||22.5%|
|Tier 6 Pawn Broker||25%|
|Saris General Store||25%|
|Saris Small Pawn Broker||25%|
|Ahala Bruttien||Bruttien Homestead|
