Tamers seem left out of the loop when it comes to vendors and being able to sell their whares (pets). Would it be possible to install a pet vendor that would be able to sell Pets marked for sale directly out of your stable? The stable slot count wouldnt change. It would just let tamers have the same vendor privalages as other trade skills.

Probably possible, but I'm against it. This is one of the last things that actually require player interaction. Too many other things can be done without need of another player these days.

Playing on Drachenfels? Speaking German? Tired of exploring Sosaria alone?

Mark me down as in favor of this idea. There arent all that many people playing UO anymore... it is hard enough to find someone who wants to buy a pet and doesnt have a maxed out tamer of their own or a friend willing to give them one; even harder to be at the right place at the right time to to speak with them.

With this I could sell a pet to someone who plays the opposite time of day i do.

I think it would spark up the taming aspect of the game since it would start some competition for pets with max stats, or best trained pets to sell. i see it really benefical for all character types, who doesnt need a mount, giant or fire beetle, or that pet with the hard to find color you where looking for? Maybe instead of a golem to train with someone could use a boura or other pet instead. Having pet vendors would make pets available for everyone, whatever time of day or night it was. Plus tying it directly to a players stable would prevent duping. Of course people could only purchase certain pets if they had the right amount of open control slots, or proper skill level to use the pet. I think this would be a welcome addition to UO.

Doesn't sounds bad that way. But you should only be able to sell as many pets you can hold in your own stable. Elsewise people will start hording animals beyond their stable limit ;)
Maybe flagging the pets you want to sell in your stable via that 'vendor' you put up to sell them.

NO, NO DEEDS. That would make duping or what that called possible *wiggles finger*

I vote against this idea. While I do like it, and think it's a good one, as said above, it removes another layer of player interaction, interaction which is lacking and very much needed.

I remember the times when tamers would go out, tame quite a few ostards and sit at Britain bank selling them for around 5 - 10k each. Those were the days. When was the last time you saw that? A few years ago for me.

Mic that is not due to people being unwilling to interact, but instead due to ther lack of people to interact WITH. Also, most people have their own tamers now, so you arent going to see people selling common mounts. This idea would help by allowing someone who has tamed something rare/unusual or highly trained to sell it to a VERY small subset of interested buyers without having to spend hours spamming Luna.

The issue you are talking about is population related. Besides, implementing this suggestion wouldn't change the fact that people dont bank sit and sell pets since they are ALREADY not doing that.
