Shopkeepers and subraces

Most shopkeepers belong to one of the standard player races. These NPCs automatically favour or disfavour certain player subraces. The matrix below shows you what to expect. Some shopkeepers do not belong to a standard race, for instance Drow or Fairie shopkeepers. They will have an individual list of their preferences, and you'll have to find out if they like you or not by paying them a visit.

Appraise works in combination with the racial preferences. If you are of a favoured race you get 5% discount. To this you add your appraise skill (ranks + buffs) divided by three with a cap of 15. So, you can get up to 20% discount. Unfavourable reactions detract 5% of your appraise rating, limiting your maximum discount to 10%, and can actually result in the shopkeeper increasing his prices if you have no appraise skill.

In numbers: Discount = - ( Appraise / 3 ) + racial modifier %, in which ( Appraise / 3 ) cannot be more than 15.
