    Crescent Moon Auctions return after a two and a half year hiatus. I've had a number of people ask me if I was going to do them again and I finally have a little bit of time to do them. Right now we will be doing them once a month. November's will be before Thanksgiving.

    That being said, this auction, rescheduled from the end of October, will take place on Friday, Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. PST (9 p.m. CST).

    To submit items, you have one of two options.

    1. Contact me via ICQ at 199889122, AIM at Kayhynn or YIM at [email protected] with the fact you want to submit auction items and where we can meet. I'm pretty much free to meet any time, but may have to schedule a time.
    2. Drop them of at the auction house. If you see the attached image below, the auction house is the first keep on the left next to the Vesper Inn on Vesper Beach. I own all the houses on that block of land, but the auction house is noted by the house sign. There is a mailbox that anyone can deposit their stuff into. To deposit items, please do the following:
    • Put the items into a bag.
    • Put a book in the bag that contains your name and contact information.
    • On the following pages in the book, please list the item and the reserve. If no reserve is listed, we will start out with no reserve (aka 1k starting bids)
    • Drop the bag with the completed book and items into the mailbox. It is a secure box, only Owners and Co-Owners can open it - and only co-Owners are my other accounts.

    Items must be received by Friday night to be included in the auction. We are also hard capping auctions at 30 items - no exceptions. We want the auctions to be short and sweet and not dragging on as they did in the past with 50-60 items. For the auction to take place, we must have a minimum of 15 items.

    We do charge a 5% commission on all items sold, which is taken from the total before the payout is made. Payout is often made right after the auction, within 15-30 minutes of auctions end. The commission goes to paying staff and for gold for future contests/event prizes.

    Auction items will be listed in a reply to this thread. WE have a few items from Blood Ghoul submitted for the previous auction that didn't get enough items. Look forward to more. Thanks!

    No new items submitted.

    I will run a short auction next week and add items of my own that I want to sell to make this happen. It will be short because I leave the next morning to be out of town. I'll post details later tonight.

    *bump* Okay a week from Friday we will attempt to host an auction AGAIN. I still have Bloodghoul's items and I'll just fill in the list with my items if needed. However, this will be my last attempt at one and if it doesn't succeed, I'll guess we're just done with auction on Origin.

    While I have noticed a number of new players, and not just the shard hopping IDOC'rs, I am not sure they read this board. I have other really good items I can bring to be auctioned if we can swing it. I spent about 6 hours cleaning my house (In game.. IRL I pay people) and discovered a bunch of neat stuff I can part with for the event.

    Let me know if you get interest and I will bring ya some good stuff.
