  1. hi.
    thanks for your info and content.

    is there any chance you can also add a ‘merchant yes/no’ table into your skyrim trainers list?
    this way a player can see if they can resell items back to the trainer in order to get their gold back at higher levels when pickpocketing is no longer an option
