    I Welcome everyone to attend Toad Town's Auction house this Sunday at 5PM Eastern Standard Time. The Auction house is located on the Atlantic Shard outside the Luna north gate, then go east from there.



    At every auction there will be a lottery for the public to play and bet their odds. The Lottery Item will be displayed on the table west of the Lottery Vendor. Announcing the winning lottery number will always be at the end of every auction and will be chosen by a random number generator. To participate in the lottery, simply purchase a lottery ticket off of the lottery vendor. There will be only 40 lottery tickets available for purchase so first come first serve. The lottery vendor will be stocked thirty minutes prior to the auction. If you have the winning lottery ticket, you must hand it to me so i can verify the code. If the winning number is called and you have it but do not speak up, we will move on to the next number so be alert when it comes time for the lottery drawing.

    Mega-Money Lottery

    This is a game that lasts the amount of one (1) month. To participate, just simply win the lottery throughout the month!!

    When the lottery is claimed at the end of every Auction, I will do the following

    1) Request a number between 1-100

    2) Request a Security Code

    I will put the winners name, chosen number, & code in a book and then place the book inside the AOS orange backpack, east of the lottery vendor.

    At the end of every month, I will do a mega drawing regarding the ones who won the lottery throughout the month. (There should be 3-4 people)

    I will use a lucky dealer to determine the winning number (1-100)

    (There Is only 1 Winner)


    Your Predicted Number is near the dealers number = 25M

    Your Predicted Number is SPOT ON with the Dealers Number = 50M


    Audric The Drunk (Mini Game Available Throughout The Auction) (STORY)

    O' there once was a man from old days of or'
    Whom had nothing on his heart than goodness and pure

    His name Was Audric, a lonesome fellow indeed
    Dreamed of the luxury life and plenty of mead

    As a boy, he and his family grew up very poor
    Until the age of twelve, when Audric heard a knock on the door

    "Good Day sir," said a quirky old fellow
    Not knowing what to do, I stumbled a "Hello"

    "Where are your parents lad, I must speak with them now!"
    "but.. ummmm..."
    "Come on boy, I am King Casca after all, so don't give me that brow"

    Realizing who the man was, Audric angrily showed him the door... slamming it into Casca's face
    "You fool of a child, come with me, you shall be my servant....
    "for no one will want you... you're a humanly disgrace"

    Many a day, Audric cried himself asleep, wanting the comfort feeling of his mothers hands.
    Then Suddenly he thought and summoned up a plan to escape.. for he was the smartest in the land

    When Casca lay drunk and asleep;
    Audric stole everything - all the gold he could reap

    He traveled, far and wide, waiting for his time to claim victory.
    Many years later, word got around that Casca was overthrown - put out of his misery!

    "Finally!" exclaimed Audric. Rejoicing In the news, he settled down in a strange village: Toad Town
    Audric Couldn't help saying to himself "Hey Casca, how does it feel that someone else is wearing your crown"

    Known for his trickery and riches - he pledged to share with those he redeems
    For, after all, Audric is now living his Dreams.

    (For more information on this mini-game, please read the book shown below in the picture, at the Auction House)


    How To Make A Submission

    Please use the purple bag (displayed in the picture below) as an example of what a submission should look like. Please get a book and a bag (there is a vendor in the bag with return runes, books, and bags) and put the item(s) in one single bag and then list the item and its starting price within the book.

    NOTE (1): If you fail to list a start price for your item, I will try my best to contact you and get that resolved. If I cannot get in contact with you I will not auction off the item.

    NOTE (2): If I am not around when your submission is completed, you can drop off your submission via my mailbox on the front steps. Everytime i come to my house, I check the mailbox and bulletin board.

    NOTE (3): Once the auction is over, I will then distribute the winning gold to all who had submitted items. Please note that I am still in school during the week and that I may be difficult to get into contact with but I will try my best to contact all who have submitted items. It is advised to stay after the auction to recieve your payout so we can avoid complications during the week.




    Auction List

    At every auction there will be a auction list that will be opened to the public. Normally, I have a item limit in my auction to about 45 items. I keep this limit because I don't want this to be a three or four hour auction. On occasion, the total items surpass that amount because at least one of the following:

    1) Holiday - in the holiday mood I like to go over the limit to give everyone the equal fairness of submitting items and also so everyone could get that holiday special. Also, depending on the holiday, there will be mini gift bags laying around that will be released throughout the auction.

    2) Item Submitting via mailbox - Sometimes the mailbox will have so many submits that it can pass the limit fairly fast. Although it may pass the item limit, I encourage as many to submit this way because I am not always on at the same time as others are.

    NOTE: Only submit items to me and no one else. I am the only one that actually runs and operates the auction itself. Thats not to say I don't have friends help me because I do, but I am the only one with access to the item submits and gold. If you are worried that it is not me, you can ask me to step behind the counter via the telepad. I am the only one with access to get behind the counter.


    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 Toad Town Auction House

    NOTE: 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.
