    Concluding note: Bidding has ended and the high bidders have been notified via PM. The high bids were:

    Magical Door: 110 million via PM

    Daemon Hide: 360 million via PM

    Thanks to everyone who participated, with bids or opinions or information!


    In the hopes that I can bid on a Shard of the Gem of Immortality, I'm taking offers on a white Daemon Hide and a Magical Door. Here's a picture of the two of them together, locked down and unhighlighted, then pictures of their descriptions when highlighted:

    The Daemon Hide is from one of the early events held on Pacific. I got it from Nails Warstein, and he said there were six of them, three in my color and three in a darker gray. So it's pretty darn rare and is a great decoration.

    The Magical Door is from the early days of Khaldun, where I've been told a Magical Door wasn't locked down for the first few days and people were able to take it.

    I'm only taking offers right now, and if I don't like the offers enough, or if I can't find a Shard of the Gem of Immortality to buy at a price I like, I may not sell. I won't back out of a deal to sell after I've agreed to it, but please don't think that being the highest bidder guarantees that I'll sell to you. Thanks for your understanding.

    You can post bids here or PM them to me. I'll post here what the current high bids are, but I'll keep the bidder anonymous if the bid is received via PM.

    Edit: Both items are on Great Lakes.

    My current plan is to take bids through next weekend (probably Sunday night, 10/11) unless someone agrees to sell me a Shard of the Gem of Immortality but requires me to pay for that sooner. If that happens, I'll try to give enough notice that anyone seriously interested in the Magical Door or Daemon Hide will have time to submit their final bids.

    Updated for new bid on Daemon Hide.

    Also, to clarify, I'll check the bids before I go to bed tonight and again tomorrow morning. I'll accept bids received overnight, since bidders might be in very different time zones. If there are any bids overnight, I'll privately notify those bidders, and whoever was the high bidder when I went to bed, and ask them each to submit their final highest bid.

    I don't plan to let this get down to a last-second bidding war where someone might lose because their timestamp is slightly past some deadline, so I've decided on this approach to let all of the serious bidders have a chance at winning, regardless of what time zone they're in.

    first, congratulations on your sales :)

    but more importantly, you should perhaps check your study...... I believe there is a thief amongst the devs and even worse, perhaps a duper! they're handing out your crystal ball all over the place!

    I would investigate legal recourse if I were you :D

    Hee hee! You may be right! They duped my ankh from around my neck several months ago, and now they've turned my Codex Emblem wall hanging into a floor decoration! :)

    It's nice that the current devs and designers are incorporating so much of the old standalone Ultima games into our current UO world.
