In the corridor leading up to the Embassy Banquet Hall, an array of colorful artwork has appeared! Below each art piece hangs a PADD with a lot number, ready for bidding.
* scale super weird lol.
To make a bid, reply to this thread and indicate the following:
- which lot number you are bidding on
- your total bid amount (MUST be greater than the previous highest bid)
- the character who is ICly making this bid (feel free to provide a unique identifier from other bidders; e.g. initials)
Any bids that do not follow this criteria will be ignored! We have temporarily added a canned response containing a suitable template, feel free to use it.
By posting your first bid here, I will automatically assume your character has purchased a gala ticket that includes auction participation. Your character’s EC pool to start out with will be 30,000 EC.
When you are outbid on any individual lot, you may assume your ‘spent’ EC is refunded to you and re-allocate it to another lot… or double down on the one you want. You do not have to wait for confirmation from the GM.
You may gift or receive EC from other characters ICly.
EC amount gifted must be ‘from’ the starting pool of EC. (i.e. you will never be able to gift away more than 30k EC.) In order to gift EC to another character, reply to this same thread and indicate the following:
- which character you are gifting to
- how much you are gifting them
- the character who is giving this gift
You may not gift your own alts. I also reserve the right to reject selling a ticket to alts with insufficient affiliation with IC Argo.
It is highly recommended that you wait for GM acknowledgement of a gift before trying to spend that EC. (i.e. check the spreadsheet.)
It is expected that this thread might get a bid chaotic. The following spreadsheet will be updated regularly to keep track of the bidding record: under the sea: silent auction - Google Sheets
All bidding transactions may be considered ICly public knowledge.
The auction will end on Sunday, 20 Mar @ delta. For additional IC information, please see Under the Sea: Charity Auction and Gala.
