    Now that Clean Up Britainnia has arrived its time to sell my castle. Here are some details of its location (hopefully the pictures work).

    As you can see its a quiet area. You get the odd Dark Wisp but quieter than the Trinsic swamps :p

    The castle comes empty, so it won't be available for any viewings inside.

    I'm going to start the bidding low, as I know I probably won't get what I paid for it, at 5 million gold.

    EDIT: Please keep bid increments to 250k min.

    The auction will end on Sunday at 9pm GMT (i'll be posting reminders in this thread before that the end).

    Feel free to look at the area.

    Good luck with the sale. I hope someone nice gets in there as Im sitting on the other side of the keep. It is a great area, not to much spawn. Trees nearby for cutting and water for sailing. Not to far from mountains for mining.

    Is it possible to just give you 5 million (and a paper bag) so you'll stay?

    1.25 Million (base cost) and a week of moving all my junk.

    Won't go any higher as housing spots are too easy to find

    But castle spots aren't. And if you find somewhere that looks big enough they're a pain to place.

    I don't expect to get what I paid for it, never said that, but I'm not going lower than 5 million for a starting bid.

    This is a unique deal. You consider that 1 mill gold is worth 10k points then your offer is presumably 50 mill gold which would be way overpaying for a castle. Especially in its location.

    If you consider the points to be worth less then that then my new bid is 6 mill.

    You have at least 3 houses in danger of falling and your buying a castle.:confused:

    You are a completely crazy woman. Why am I always attracted to the crazy ones???:heart:

    Har... I understand.

    As to the worth of the clean up points, value is in the eyes of the beholder :)

    I had noticed that the mage suits sold for over 5 million after last turn in.

    Well, well, well. I didn't realise the Mongbat Ranch might have become available. Whilst I still want to sell the castle, that won't change, I was considering looking at a place I could customize and keep public.

    Sooo Sooo tempted to make an offer for the Ranch. >.<

    Anyway, back on topic, just over 24 hours to go for those interested in this castle.

    Yep castle is empty. I had no intention to sell everything hehe. Want some stuff left :p

    Plus i probably got more for the contents selling individual than I would have if they were included in this. I did sell a lot.

    But back on topic. 12 hours from this post to go!

    "The auction will end on Sunday at 9pm GMT" says that the last offer at exactly 9pm GMT is not valid
    an offer at 8:59:59 is still valid - 9:00 is the end time - therefore invalid as the auction ended already
    ...your castle, your rules

    While I understand that technical point of the timing, I wish multi-people didn't try to snipe at the last minute.

    Just to remind you that you're not so innocent. /Cough /Cough

    I just wanted to sell the damn thing >.<

    Frankly I'm getting a headache.

    Anyway, I've decided what to do. Afterglow will get the castle but I have decided to give TheDrAJ the value of his bid.

    So basically I will be giving all the gold I've made away.

    In the situation this seems the fairest thing to do. No one would have been happy either way but in the circumstances it seems right.

    This is partly my error so I hope the gold will be some compensation to TheDrAJ and will go to something good.

    That's surely not the way I wanted it to end.
    Doive, in this case, I owe you another 9 mil additionally to the ones I paid yet. Hopefully I manage to get those too in time.

    No, you don't. I choose to do this because I felt in the light of how this auction ended it was the correct thing to do.

    Everything is even now in my eyes.

    But I'm slightly confused as to Razz's post. Its been an hour since I checked this thread.

    ok thats just not ok....

    just as i see it.... the auction ends at 9 pm.... there can't be a bit at 9 pm anymore... but thats none of my business i know.

    BUT....it can't be that someone who wants to sell a castle has no castle anymore and no gold either.
    thats just not right!!!

    we want doive to stay on siege not to drive him away right?!
    at least i want him to stay and i know i am not the only one!

    Symma I had put up some incorrect information on how auctions properly end. After I realized my mistake I deleted the info and replaced it with what you see now.

    I resolved the situation in the way I felt happy with and I'd do it again. Just the way I am.
