Royal Tribute Collector
If you are not enemies with the Empire, Royal Tribute Collectors will visit your base approximately twice a year. They accept gold and prisoners in exchange for Royal Favor. The pawn who initiates the trade receives the Royal Favor.
Gold's exchange rate (listed in the trade window) is .02 and is not affected by social skill. The Royal Favor earned rounds up when greater than .5, so players can take advantage of the rounding to maximize Royal Favor for gold:
Exchanging 26 gold twice (52 total) will result in 2 Royal Favor, saving 23 gold compared with trading 75 at once. The rounding may change in future bug fixes, as this gets around the intended exchange rate.
Prisoners generate 4 Royal Favor - factors such as bionic body parts, etc, do not appear to affect the trade value. Prisoners do not need to be at full health in order to exchange, but they must be healthy enough to walk. You can see the Royal favor value listed under View Information for prisoners. You will receive the normal mood and social penalties from selling prisoners to slavers.
