[Buying] Black Horse

Discussion in 'UO Europa Trade' started by Kou (DoT), Dec 27, 2011.

    Following my earlier price check, which no longer exists (but turned up a price range of 10-25mil), I'm looking to buy one of those fancy black horses that anyone can ride without taming skill.

    I want one of these horses.
    It would fill me with glee to have one of these horses.

    Really really do want one of these.
    If you have one and aren't opposed to the principal of selling it, then you are hereby implored to PM me.

    I've just returned to UO, Europa.

    Turns out, I have one of these. :)

    Had it for a veryyyyyyyyyy long time, but didn't ride it much as was told they were illegal and it'd be taken from me if it was reported.

    How much ya gonna give me for it?

    Can I bid too?:devil:

    Is is the pure black or just the dark?

    If it's a pure black I'd be interested as well.

    I reckon the seller would be open for more than one person's bid on it. I just feel it's lousy ettiquette to try and poach an item someone else has been after for a few weeks. But that's just my opinion on the matter ;)

    Taking into account the previous price check, my desire for said hoof-monster, and my generally airy approach to trading... I'll open by offering 20mil.

    Your lucky I have a black horse already and that I paid 12M for it, otherwise you'd be in a bidding war.

    Enjoy and Happy New Year!:mf_prop:

    If anyone bids against Kou i will go 1 mil above them :) I know how hard these horses are to get for Roleplay and i will be willing to see Kou gets one.

    So, here's a pertinent question, which I may or may not have not considered until now.
    When does this end?

    Rather an important detail, really, especially for someone who's eager to get started on the 7-day bonding timer.
    (and who may only have marginally more patience than she does black horses).

    Well, id say it'd be wednesday, I have a problem though, in that the horse is on a red shadowlord character. (I came back to find my old guild had joined SL, then all quit) rendering my char stuck in SL, (I can assure you it is not a faction horse but does say [SL] next to it for now. So I left SL when i came back, just waiting for chars to leave. Then, I shall find a trustworthy blue and transfer the horse to them, (as i can only do it in fel and i can't imagine anyone would wanna pay 30m for a horse that could be killed instantly. I'll then bring it to the trammel lands on my blue char. If this is all okay?

    Good thing it doesn't say [TB] in the stead...
    Else I would have to start bidding now! ;)

    I'm not going to pretend to be in a state of anything but sleep deprived bewilderment, but if it's a process that gets it into my stable without a hitch, I'm sure it's fine :)

    Since I appear to have won this, can we talk "trusted blue"?
    Obviously I'd rather it be someone I know and trust, too.

    If it helps, I have a house in fel that the horse could be transfered in, thus keeping it from being killed on transfer.

    Haha im afraid i do not have the funds nor would i being willing to spend 30m each on black horses for all our guild members. would cost a fortune lol. Our uniforms are already quite expensive as it is as we use alot of abyssal cloth. Think it cost me like 6 mil to make 5 uniforms, and they dont even have any magic properties bar mage armour. :D

    I'd be interested if you have more pure black :) But maybe for a slightly cheaper price ;)

    I would also be interested :)

    I did not bid on this one out of respect for Esca and his comment in the thread (I knew he would have kept his promise, even if it would have cost all he has :) )
    But the next one I would bid on ....
