    Greetings Ladies and Gentleman,

    The time has come once again for Toad Town to host our 3rd Rare's Festival. As your Live Auction Host, I Welcome everyone to come attend the Rare's Festival on June 20th - June 22, and enjoy the many activities we have to offer.



    How to Submit to the Rare's Festival Live Auction:

    Please put your item(s) in a single bag along with a book. List the Item in the book with its starting/reserve price. In the title of the book, please put your characters name. In the 'by' section, please put a prominent way to contact you. ie: ICQ, Stratics, or even a code. You can either submit the item(s) to me personally or drop them off in my mailbox on my porch.

    NOTE (1): If you drop the submission off in my mailbox, please specify that it is for the rares festival. I host Auctions weekly and it may go into the weekly live auction unless stated otherwise.

    NOTE (2): DO NOT hand over any item to anyone without verifying if it is me. There are a few people in our UO world that will try to steal/scam others. Unfortunately, it does happen and there isn't anything we as players can do.

    Claiming Your Winnings:
    If you have submitted item(s) to the Rare's Festival Live Auction, please stay afterward to claim your winnings, or at least be within the vicinity of the Auction House. Being a staff member, we are always busy doing tasks behind the scenes and I may not be available later to retrieve your gold for you. I will notify you via Stratics or ICQ if you need to retrieve your gold and or items.

    NOTE (1): I don't have ICQ, but there a few members of Toad Town that do. If you prefer notification through ICQ, I will have a trustee ICQ you in regards to the auction. However, if you have stratics, I can contact you easily through stratics.

    NOTE (2): I will NOT be charging a commission for the Rare's Festival Live Auction. What the item sells for is what you will claim at the conclusion of the Auction.




    Rules & Need-to-Knows For The Toad Town Auction

    Please be sure to read the rules regarding the auction. With the cooperation from every individual, we can produce a better environment for everyone to enjoy. Even though I am fun and games most of the time, I do take these rules seriously. Since I am the only one running the auction, I am doing around 5 or more things at once WHILE trying to not mess up someone's submitted item.

    Depending on the player and what they did, the punishment varies:

    Temporary Ban - banned for that particular auction. This serves as a warning. If you do the same thing again it can result in permanent ban.

    Permanent Ban - pretty self explanatory but basically you won't be allowed to participate in the Toad Town Auction or any event associated with the Toad Town Auction House

    NOTE (1): It is very hard to get a permanent banning but it is possible. I don't like to ban anyone because I want everyone to enjoy the game without drama but I will ban if it is needed. FYI: I keep a documented record of people who were banned and why, people needing banned and why, and people with warnings and why.

    NOTE (2): To avoid future miscommunication. Please read this book before submitting to the auction. Recently, a player submitted items to my weekly auction without getting to know the auction house, which caused a huge dramatic argument that could have been easily avoided.



    Here is a small outline of what to expect with the Rare's Festival Live Auction:

    • There is an Item Limit of 75 Items
    • Submissions are OPEN as of the creation of this thread
    • Deadline to Submit is Wednesday, the 18th of June. (NO EXCEPTIONS)
    • ONLY submit items that are rare (Non-Spawning items)
    • Items under the value of 5M must be submitted within a packaged lot.
    • If you submit something that isn't considered rare or it doesn't meet the terms of the submission, then the item will be voided and returned to its rightful owner.
    • Be sure to put the correct information within the book when submitting. If it has some information missing, I will try to notify you. If I hear nothing from you, the item will be voided and returned.
    If I missed something or if anyone has any questions, please PM me. Thanks and see you all at the 2014 Atlantic Rare's Festival at Toad Town!!

    Isn't 5pm EST on a Friday a really bad time for this? That's 2pm PST on a weekday.
