Winterfest Auction

Post by Enig » Tue Nov 19, 2019 12:41 am

Good news, everybody! Again! Time to get back into the swing of adventuring with an auction!

That is to say, the Waukeenar will be holding another auction during the Winterfest season. Here's the relevant bits:

This is pretty much exactly like other auctions that have been held in the past with the exception that you can also send in vouchers for services as well as goods. For example, a wizard might auction off their services to identify the goods in a cart, and a bard might auction off their services as a musician or take a comission for a piece of art, etc. etc. The buyer assumes all responsibility for offers of service that aren't fulfilled.

Starting this very moment (the 18th) and until the 2nd of December (so the next two weeks) Renea will be open to receiving various items either in person or via the magic post to be auctioned off. Feel free to give a minimum starting bid for your items and to send as many as you like. If you're so inclined you may also submit multiple items into a single lot to be auctioned off together. All submissions will be anonymous with the obvious exception of services, which can't be anonymous.

On the day of December 3rd (evening, EST), I'll be putting up the list of items being auctioned both on the forums and on the news board in the game, though only the board in the game will show the colours of the items for sale and only the forum will show the current bids. The bidding period will end on January 1st at midnight EST.

You can bid by sending a letter to Renea through the post, or if you prefer by handing a letter to her in person. All bids must be written down (so we have a record in case of mishap), but it isn't necessary to mail them. Be sure to include your name, the lot number of the items you're bidding on, and how much you're actually bidding. All bids will be made in platinum and the list of bids will be updated at midnight EST each day. For the last six hours of the auction (Dec 31st, 6PM-Midnight EST) I'll update once an hour, though if there's an intense bidding war going on I may update more often.

An example of a proper bidding slip:

Name: Mystra
Lot #: 7
Bid: 7,777,777 platinum

As is usual for these types of auctions a 10% fee will be levied by the followers of Waukeen for their services. For example, if an item has a winning bid of 80 platinum then 72 will go to the seller and 8 will go to the followers of Waukeen, and in turn to various charitable organizations in the city of Waterdeep.

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to let me know! Thanks!
