    The successful RBG auction held Friday September 23rd from 9pm to 12:10pm showed that despite the better employment numbers the Sosarian economy is still a rapidly changing. Selling everything from cow statues to teleport tiles to random elemental scythes the RBG auction is currently the only auction on Chesapeake. This makes it invaluable to see the current economic state of Sosaria and while the unemployed hordes that we had sadly grown used to seeing around all the banks have disappeared, the Sosarian economy is still highly volatile.


    Things that once sold for 20 million gold have are now barely moving for 11 million. Other items continue to gain value though making it difficult for the average Sosarian to judge what things are worth. The RBG auction had 2 separate lots of teleport tiles that would have once fetched 20 million. The first sold for 12.2 million and the second for a mere 11 million, with the second lot only gathering one bid. Messana Cat Statues from Catskills sold for a mere 550,000 gold for a set of 2. Pushme Pullyu's have also seen a dramatic loss in value with a set of two going for a mere 1.5 million. Of course some items have held their value very well as the bidding war between Abby Normal of UFO and Oberon over a set of 120 Mysticism, Imbuing and Focus scrolls, they ended up selling to Oberon for 7.2. A Crystallized Essence of course sold rapidly for 5.5 million gold. A total of 20 lots did not sell including EM Christmas Items and 20 powders of fortification showing that past economic trends are not necessarily holding true. The key lesson of the auction tonight is that Sosaria is currently a buyers market so remember to come out and see the deals!

    That's a sharp looking auction house from the little bit I see. :)
