"COME ONE COME ALL, RARE GOODS AND ODDITIES FROM AROUND THE DOLDRUMS TO BE ACQUIRED!"

 

 

"Welcome one and all, my name is Grettik Gritbeard: local eccentric and archaeologist! To those of you who know me, welcome! To those of you who don't: i'm the author of the well-known Explorer's Digest and organizer of the first Grand Doldrums Auction as well as being a veteran archaeologist of this land!

 

It is confirmed that the Palm Rats of Egtown will be hosting the event!

 

 

So how does an auction work? Well for those of you who are curious, there are a few ground rules I will lay out below on this here poster:

  1. Gold.png?version=fecf9dd0a51b27d65e6f5b1 We are guests at Egtown, any trouble makers will be dealt with on the terms of the Palm Rats.
  2. Gold.png?version=fecf9dd0a51b27d65e6f5b1 No bidding what you can't afford. All payment is required following the auction and non-payment will be dealt with -harshly-
  3. Gold.png?version=fecf9dd0a51b27d65e6f5b1 If you wish to bid when the auctioneer announces the next 'raise' in the bid, simply wave at them and they will acknowledge your bid back
  4. Gold.png?version=fecf9dd0a51b27d65e6f5b1 There will be a 'starting' bid on each item based on it's perceived value.
  5. Gold.png?version=fecf9dd0a51b27d65e6f5b1 Scrying bids will be allowed. One of the Palm Rat Evokers will be on standby with a scrying orb to take long-distance bids anonymously (to all bar the Palm Rats and auctioneer)
  6. Gold.png?version=fecf9dd0a51b27d65e6f5b1 Postal bids will be allowed. If you wish to make a set postal bid on an item simply state the item you wish to bid on and the amount. This is a gamble for you -may- win the item without having to be present (and thus receive same anonymity as a scrying bid) but on the flip side you may end up putting in a 2000 silver bid on an item that does not go further than its starting bid of 50 silver. Postal bids are to be received in advance and will be returned if it is outbid. The postal bid shall be announced at the -start- of the item in question's bidding proceedings.
  7. Gold.png?version=fecf9dd0a51b27d65e6f5b1 An auction fee of 8% of the final sale value of the lot will be deducted at the end of the auction.
  8. Gold.png?version=fecf9dd0a51b27d65e6f5b1 A refundable fee of 4% of the 'starting' bid of an item is required. If your item secures at least one bid then this 2% fee is refunded instantly. 
  9. Gold.png?version=fecf9dd0a51b27d65e6f5b1 Those wishing to put an item up for the auction are required to have the item's description sent to Grettik Gritbeard as well as the lot delivered to him by no later than 6pm on the 7th of this month. Items after this time will not be made available for auction. This is to grant time for people to prepare their wallets and to establish starting bids for all items.
  10. Gold.png?version=fecf9dd0a51b27d65e6f5b1 If you are coming purely to spectate rather than bid, there will be seating for bidders and seating for spectators. Bids made from the spectator stands will be ignored.

 

 

Advice for those new to the art of bidding:

  1. Copper.png?version=2c358dd2c1a8b43bab975 Be wary and size up the opposition, don't always go for the big prizes as that is what most others will, you can pick up some real bargains where other people are not bidding.
  2. Copper.png?version=2c358dd2c1a8b43bab975 Try to anticipate what other people are after and price them out of the game early
  3. Copper.png?version=2c358dd2c1a8b43bab975 You can bid on an item you don't even want just to rack up someone else's coin purse... but be warned: they may pull out and leave you with a cost for something you don't want!
  4. Copper.png?version=2c358dd2c1a8b43bab975 Putting an item up for auction? If it's common, try to have a lot of them in bulk! If it's rare, try to add a history to it or emphasize its usefulness / status! The more information on items the better!
  5. Copper.png?version=2c358dd2c1a8b43bab975 Don't forget, as the auctioneer gets a cut of the final price they will be trying their best to ramp up the value of your item!

 

Should any of you have any questions or queries, do get in contact with Grettik Gritbeard. A letter can be sent addressed to him to Hafthor's Keep south-east of Haven and south-west of New Moonbrook upon the Isle of Opej'nor."
