    UPDATE: 100 BOOKS HAVE BEEN SOLD THUS FAR, CONTEST IS NOW OFFICIAL

    I will be starting a new fun raffling project. I will make an announcement as to when it is ready.

    Prizes are:

    4th Place – mix and match rares goodies bag (located on Atlantic)
    3rd Place – mix and match rares goodies bag (located on Baja)
    2nd Place – Clanin’s faction spell book from Shadow Lord Event and a goodie bag (located on Atlantic)
    1st Place – Luna House located on (Napa Valley – inner circle, NE corner plot 17x17) Valued at 500-900 mil

    Here are the rules:

    1. Two “naked female elf” vendors will be put up at the Napa Luna Plot containing books for purchase at 5 mil each.

    2. Each book will have a set of 3 random numbers on the cover and inside as well and an additional identifier code on the inside for authenticity checks.

    3. If you don’t have gold on Napa, I will accept gold on all US shards including Drachenfels and Europa for books from the vendor (you pay first of course)

    4. Winning entries will be the closest set of numbers without going over on the New York State “Numbers” lotto game’s March 15th Midday drawing.

    Icq 123172317

    Thanks,

    Manti

    I'll buy a few or 5 myself. I don't see being able to sell 100 books being an issue! Only crazy people don't believe in gambling.

    This will get set up sometime tonight or tomorrow the latest. I've thought of something else as well. I will let you pick the 3 numbers if you choose that option too. I will check agaist my list so only 1 set of each possible numbers can be owned by one player.

    In that case I'm VERY SANE!

    Gotta decide on my strategy. Hmmmm .........I'll buy five books when Manti first sets it up. Then buy 5 more when approx half have been sold.

    Thus far, 77 books have sold. Remember the Raffle will take place only when 100 books have been sold so we're almost there.

    Good luck.

    Not to hijack, genuine question here. I was under the impression that Ander was selling this house? Is it now only available through this auction?

    He was but now that auction has been on hold until the outcome of this raffle, i.e. if less than 100 books are sold the raffle will be cancelled and Ander's auction will still take place and vice versa. I have sent him a message this morning. Thanks for the reminder.

    This is a very interesting situation. Basically there are no 2,3 or 4th place as no other numbers were picked below 016 except for Nabins and according to the rules only numbers closest to the actual without going over will receive the prize.
