    ((IMPORTANT NOTE: MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND HOW THIS AUCTION WORKS BEFORE YOU SIGN UP FOR IT! All items should be RP/novelty/silly items and not actual rares/valuables as they will NOT be secure. Items/lots should be creative interpretations/presentations of common items, NOT actual rares. Make sure you bring a variety of random stuff to bid with. Also, you MUST either reserve a spot in this thread or PM/ICQ me as we will only be running 20 sellers for this unique auction.))

    Today I visited the auction house and to my horror found something pinned to the door. Surely this was not another threatening note about a kidnapped daughter!​

    To my relief, I found that it was not. Instead it was this message:

    There was also some melted ice cream on the auction house steps. Clearly the work of a goblin.

    Time for another goblin auction apparently! Details were scarce, so I tracked down the only goblin I knew who had the temerity to paste a poster for her own auction onto my auction house door--Soozie Squidglet, who ran the previous Pitmuck Auction.

    Once again I found Soozie at the Pitmuck playground riding the merry go round and asked her about the sign. After a while I was able to gather the following details:
    -------------

    RULES:​

    - The Goblin Auction will be held during the ChessieFest 2015 Pre-Fest on Monday, September 14th at 7PM ET.

    - Since goblins live in caves and do not have an auction house, the auction will be held in the ChessieFest bar area.

    - Soozie Squidglet and Squishy will be running it.

    - All items should be RP/novelty/silly items and not actual rares/valuables as they will NOT be secure. This is a SILLY RP EVENT!

    - Sellers will present their own items! Tell auction-goers all about your item and why it is worth buying!

    - Each seller may contribute only ONE item/lot.

    - There is a maximum of 20 lots for the entire auction. (This, apparently, is as high as goblins can count.) Please respond to this thread to reserve an auction slot! You can include a brief description of your item, but please save the full description for the auction itself.

    - This is a barter auction. Bidders will bid whatever they have on them to trade for whatever is up for auction, and the seller will choose his/her favorite bid to trade.

    - Non-paying bidders and other undesirables will probably be peed on. Such is goblinkind.

    -------------​

    Soozie is really excited about this auction, and I offered to help by passing the word along. The exact location will be announced and added to this post as soon as possible. Hope to see you there!

    I managed to wake her up this morning and made her promise to bring something to the auction.
