    The Catskills Black Market

    Recurring trading-event, scheduled for each first Saturday of the month at 8pm EST.

    Next Black Market: October 4th 2008, 8 pm EST.

    The United Pirates of Catskills are happy to announce the Black Market event! This recurring in-game trading and auctioning event will be accompanied by entertaining elements. During this event, you can sell, buy, trade or auction your wares! In between the bargains, duels bets and games will be held for entertainment. The facts:

    • Merchants will get a personal market stand where they can advertise and sell their products. Bargaining is encouraged! Merchants should have a list of their products locked down on their market stand (at least one day prior to the event, so people can come by and check on the items). The prices should be LOWER than the regular Luna vendor prices!
    • Are you looking for a certain item? You can post your request on the bulletin board out front of the Black Market. Merchants can check the board beforehand and have the appropriate items ready for sale. The board will be wiped after the Black Market is over.
    • We will hold games and duels where everybody can place bets and everybody can participate. It will be fun!

    Merchants who want to sell items, please contact Hawkeye Pike a few days prior to the Black Market to take care of the lockdowns. ICQ: 7041294

    The Black Market will take place in the building called "Black Market" at the following location in TRAMMEL:

    How was the turn out this time around? I am not able to visit the realm as often as I would like but hope this event catches on. Someday I'd like to have a healthy supply of pets to auction off to benefit the zoo. Are folks turning out for these?

    The turn-out was very slow at first, but picked up nicely.
    About 3 or 4 people were selling.
    Congrats to Robert Pen Dragon [CYM] for winning Lord Blackthornes Exemplar in the Find the Book Quest!
