    The Catskills Black Market

    Recurring trading-event, scheduled for each first Saturday of the month at 8pm EST.

    First Black Market: Sep. 6th 2008, 8 pm EST.

    The United Pirates of Catskills are happy to announce the Black Market event! This recurring in-game trading and auctioning event will be accompanied by entertaining elements. During this event, you can sell, buy, trade or auction your wares! In between the bargains, duels bets and games will be held for entertainment. The facts:

    • Merchants will get a personal market stand where they can advertise and sell their products. Bargaining is encouraged! Merchants should have a list of their products locked down on their market stand (at least one day prior to the event, so people can come by and check on the items). The prices should be LOWER than the regular Luna vendor prices!
    • Very valuable or rare items can be brought in for the auction. They will be locked down for display in a secluded area (at least one day before the event). These items will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. The money goes to the owner of the item, minus a small fee (5%) which will be used as prize for the Black Market events. (Auctions will only be held, if at least 3 bidders are there.)
    • Are you looking for a certain item? You can post your request on the bulletin board out front of the Black Market. Merchants can check the board beforehand and have the appropriate items ready for sale. The board will be wiped after the Black Market is over.
    • We will hold games and duels where everybody can place bets and everybody can participate. It will be fun!

    People who want to sell or auction off items, please contact Hawkeye Pike a few days prior to the Black Market to take care of the lockdowns. ICQ: 7041294

    The Black Market will take place in the building called "Black Market" at the following location in TRAMMEL:

    Sounds like fun. I'll make sure to mark my calendar and shine up my nicest set of armor.
