The Nujel'm Black Market will be hosted by the infamous Holly Bloodhand on Saturday, September 19th at 4PM ET. While this auction will run much like the Vesper Auction, there will be some important differences. All items must be communicated to and brought to the auctioneer NO LATER than Thurdsay, September 17th at midnight ET so that a full list can be made available for buyers ahead of time. DO NOT leave items in the Vesper Auction House mailbox for this auction without confirming with me first. I can be reached via Stratics PM or at ICQ 1234 98 286. This auction will be capped at 50 lots, so make sure to get your items in as soon as possible! ----- RULES FOR SELLERS: - This is a HIGH END auction. We will ONLY be accepting non-spawning, very rarely spawning items, and especially exceptional items. - Each seller may submit up to 3 items/lots to give the maximum number of sellers a chance to participate. If we do not have enough submissions by Thursday, I will open this up to more per seller. - Each item or lot should be in its own bag with a book inside with: seller's name, item name, opening bid, and any information for the auctioneer to share with auction attendees. - For this auction, please also include another way to reach you (ICQ, Stratics handle, or email preferred) and a codeword for picking up your items. Items/money will ONLY be returned/paid to characters of the correct name who can provide the codeword they wrote in the book. - This auction will NOT have barrel lots. Please keep your lots under 5 items. - There is no fee or commission for placing items in this auction. ----- RULES FOR ALL ATTENDEES AND BIDDERS: -- No casting, crafting, or irrelevant chat during the auction. Leave all mounts and pets outside or in the stable. -- No shill bidding (bidding on your own items to drive up price). -- Staff reserves the right to place bids. -- Bid increments are as follows: up to 100k bids must be at least 1k each, from 100k to 1M at least 10k each, and 1M+ at least 100k each. -- Payment is due immediately upon placing a winning bid. -- Payment may be made in the form of cash/checks OR you may opt to purchase a book for the bid amount from the auction vendor behind the counter and trade the book with the cashier for the item. --You have until the next five items have been auctioned to pay your winning bid(s), during which time you will be reminded at least once by the auction staff. If you refuse to pay, you will be banned from the auction house and the item will be re-auctioned. ----- This should go without saying, but the Nujel'm Black Market reserves the right to eject or ban any individual from the auction at our discretion. First and/or minor offenses will likely only receive an ejection, but repeated and/or extreme behaviors will earn a ban. Behaviors likely to earn such a ban include: -Bidding without paying. -A pattern of breaking the auction house rules. -A pattern of disrupting player events. -A pattern of abusive behavior toward other players. -Fighting in the auction house. -Attempting to harm or cause harm to other players' pets in or at the auction house. ----- Good luck and happy bidding!
