    The United Pirates of Catskills announce the MARDI GRAS Black Market event for Mar. 7th, 8 pm EST! Show up as insanely dressed-up as you can!

    During this monthly recurring event, you can sell, buy or trade your wares! The facts:
    • Merchants can claim a personal market stand where they can advertise and sell their products. The merchants should enter the list of their products into the book 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! Bargaining is encouraged!
    • 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.
    If you want to sell contraband, you can simply come to the Black Market building prior to the event and enter your name and your item list into one of the (empty) books on the market stands. By doing that you have claimed the market stand and may use it exclusively during the event. The Black Market building is located next to our Jolly Roger Inn.

    What a day! At the time the Market started, I was standing there with not a single merchant, and I already had thought about canceling the Black Market. Literally in the last second, some merchants finally showed up. Thanks for your help, friends!
    The crazy dressed person with the bra standing in the middle, that's me. ;)

    Aw, I'm very sorry I couldn't attend, but some unexpected things cropped up with the guild at the last minute. One of your crew came over and reprimanded me and gave me a very stern talking to, though! If I want to make penance (and avoid being tracked down and glared at again), I'll have to buy something at the next one! :>

    *...hides from Aneirin* :p

    Why wait? If you feel guilty, perhaps buying something now would help.
    I have a bridge near trinsic I'm looking to sell... And I'll let it go for only half of what I would charge in Luna. :D

    I'll have you know Piper, that Aneirin still has scars from that talking to.

    Next time, he won't be so cordial. Being nice to you hurts!

    Hey, it wasn't Piper who hit him! Don't punish me for Laur's meanness, Piper tried to warn him!
