"I broker ransoms for the poor wretches who are captured in these endless wars. Normally I travel between the salt mines and the slave markets on the coast, on commission from those whose relatives have gone missing. But if I'm out on my errands of mercy, and I come across a fellow dragging around a captive or two, well, there's no harm in a little speculative investment, is there? And you look like the type who might have a prisoner to sell." - Ransom Broker's introduction.

Ransom Brokers are found randomly in taverns all across Calradia. They remain in one location for only a few (randomly determined) days before reappearing elsewhere.

In the first Mount&Blade, they would buy prisoners from the player 50 denars for each prisoner. In Warband, however, they will pay different sums per prisoner, depending on the military rank of the purchase. They also provide information about the whereabouts of imprisoned party heroes and the possibility to ransom them as well.

Ramun the Slave Trader is similar to a ransom broker, but who almost always appears in Tihr (it is very rare that he does not) and offers a fixed sum of 50 denars for each prisoner, no matter what rank they are. He can give advice about capturing prisoners.
