At first I thought pressing "o" would conclude the trading, been doing this for multiple games. Well in my pursuit to find out why I was losing items and not gaining anything from the caravans I checked the wiki. It explains how it works but it doesn't seem to explain how to conclude your transaction. What am I missing? How do I conclude my trade with the caravans?

You're picking offer, not trade, essentially giving them gifts to increase your favor with them. To propose the trade, pick t.

yes i understand that part, but what happens after that? – Paralytic Nov 21 '12 at 0:05
@Paralytic: Then the goods are exchanged, they reject the trade, or they propose a different trade. – Ullallulloo Nov 21 '12 at 0:09
Then you hit esc and continue playing with magma. – authenticgeek Nov 21 '12 at 0:10
@authenticgeek yah i did exactly that, and nothing happened. still have all the stuff i tried to trade. – Paralytic Nov 29 '12 at 0:22
There should have been a message whether they accept or reject the trade, either way. Also, there should be the merchant's mood shown on top. – ShiDoiSi Nov 29 '12 at 16:17
