    I really enjoyed and miss the Sunday afternoon auctions (Thank you, Toad Town!),
    and Raresfest was a blast! So I have remodeled the first floor of my house and..

    I am doing an auction on Sundays at 5 pm eastern until Alexander settles into college life or another auction house is established. Gates will be in Luna from 430-5.

    The house will have the capability to run 5 items as a week-long silent auction for true rares and high-demand items, ending on Sunday at 7 pm eastern. I will auction pets as well, but there will be a 1 week delay for pet submissions (I will only auction them after they have bonded).

    Many of you do not know me, although I have played on Atlantic for four years. My main character is ivan. To those that do not know me yet, I look forward to meeting you. I recognize that I will have to earn your trust. I will do my best to fill the auction until I have established that bond with you. I am sure that it will take a few weeks to smooth out basic operations; I have a feeling that I will have a new found appreciation for all of Alexander's hard work. I will be handing out runes and doing ethy retouches in Luna or Brit over the weekend. Please come say hello! I will be happy to accept submissions, of course.

    For any inclined to help, I would greatly appreciate:
    -someone willing to spend twenty minutes gating from luna (4:50-5:10 pm).
    -locking down a rune on your front steps.
    -help with trivia questions
    -any advice on the auction process [@Alexander :)]
    Please pm me or post here. My icq is 479-360-222.

    Thanks for your time. I look forward to tomorrow!

    Sorry I couldn't make it. I had to do errands in real life. :(

    I can hopefully make it next time. I hope it all went well!

    That was a really nice Auction you ran Sunday. The only issue I had was the Gates to the Event ended too shortly. A friend and I had to run the Island looking for your house. Granted I marked a Rune for the next one, but I bet other people will/did have this same issue.
