    Hello all. It has been a while since I have held an auction (or posted on here). Today I am auctioning off an (see title above). Starting bid will be at 650m. It is a 1 of 3 - Unique - Chesapeake Event item. The auction will end on the day of June 28, 2011 at 8:00 P.M. EDT. All bids are to be left in the stratics post itself, not via PM. If a bid is placed in the last 10 minutes of the auction, the auction will last 10 minutes from the last bid. NO EXCEPTIONS!!
    Example: if a bid is placed at 7:57, the auction will end at 8:07. This will continue until no bid is placed in 10 minutes of the previous.
    If you have any questions, feel free to post here, i will check it sparingly.

    P.S. DO NOT , I REPEAT, DO NOT PM ME OF BUYOUTS, IT IS BEING AUCTIONED

    very cool item, but it seems saying 1 of 3 and then "unique" right afterwards is contradictory... just saying :) good luck with the sale buddy, its big and rare, should pull some good gold

    Hi, wondering how you might have gotten this. Did you steal from the event? Because I know the person who got all 3 of them by himself. This was confirmed by Dudley. So may I ask how you came about having this item? Btw check it to make sure its not still bugged, Dudley may be able to help you with it.

    It wasn't stolen when he tried to lock it down, when it was unlocked to move it, it fell thru the floor of a secured house and landed on the ground. It was trying to be retrieved when it disappeared. I stated I understand that things on the ground are fair game and even suggested this one get checked out to make sure it wasn't bugged. I'm not complaining, I was just asking how he came into possession of it.

    He released it in a public house while my character was revealed the whole time next to them, I simply picked it up when it was released. Auction still going on.

    You might want to check your math here. Even today, it is more than 26 hours from the Auction ending. You stated, "The auction will end on the day of June 28, 2011 at 8:00 P.M. EDT" Right now that is 48 hours from now and you posted that 26 hour message yesterday.

    Congratulations on stealing it! I personally would not pay 650 Million for an Event Item. It is not even that old... Also, looks like you have NO other bidders. You want want to start this at 100 and see if you get any takers. That is, if you really want to sell it. :wall:

    I dont know if i should get involved or not but its bothering me. Should he even be aloud to post an auction for stealing from another Rare's collector and admitting to it? I dont know, its a shady thing in my opinion. Cant you just earn the rare like the original owner did?

    I am just curious and I would prolly hunt the man down with pain sticks and stab their eyes out until their was nothing left and then resurrect them just to do it again but this isn't me....I am just curious as to how it happened so I know who not to trust when it comes to Rares on Chesapeake.

    Was the object stolen while at the EM event site?

    Did someone release the item in front of the person and they grabbed it?

    Did it fall through the floor of the house and the player paged "help" "Other" and requested the item from a GM?

    Dudley confirmed there was three stolen and only three by the same person correct? (not that we need an item count I can see all three in my news pictures)

    Mr Gareth
    I really wish you had been just a couple more step's ahead of me to get these 3 idol's.I only wanted to do what Commander Foxx said after the event (the gate would remain open for us to look for more clue's) I remeber those locked door's :eyes: > I just had to get my lockpicker , I had a Master skeleton key on me :thumbup: door opened ,Player named Green Hornet was also looking for more clue's .Mr Hornet ask how did ya open that door (i said gm lockpicker) SO while looking for clue's looking around i only see blood on the wall's and carved body part's (slice and dice ) The skill stealing was also on that toon 120 stealing skill .Thought why not try it because by sight alone i did not see anything So i click on stealing :party:bagged all 3 idol's.Welp that's how i did it.....
    Okay the thief of the 3 rd idol >Took place at my trammel castle<
    My castle was indeed locked to everyone even my own guild member's . Being a 12 year player of ultima online when locking stuff down in a house first thing is to secure and detect hidden player's >no one but me was in the castle<I unlocked the idol and before i could even click to pick it up under the castle it dropped (snap you're finger's that fast ) I seen a tip of the idol's head tryed to pick it up :cursing: then the idol just vanished >Paged a game master >Game master informed me that it was not under my castle :mad: <at first i was mad yes.but thing's in ultima online have been known to bug :cursing:,
    whatever or however Necro/tom was able to get it from under my castle i have no idea:wall: I do hope Necro/tom injoys his prize once again i am not gonna bash ,harm or hurt a player over an item in a game...Mr Gareth i tell ya man it's a simple fact of the game if another player is looking to take what ya earned no security system or door will stop them .
