Familiar Silent Bid Auction [Sage 3pm May 26th]

THREE-DAY SILENT BID AUCTION

What: It's a drunk familiar auction. Well, maybe not too inebriated.
Where: Just one stumble further. At that PM box.
When: From Wednesday, May 26th at 3pm server until Saturday, May 29th at 3pm server.

This will be a silent auction, with bids being sent by PM. Bids submitted before 3pm on May 26th, or after the 3pm on May 29th will be placed in empty bottles and thrown to sea.

Some of the proceeds may be used to throw tournaments at auction end.

The way things work:
  • The date and time of the auction can be found above.
  • At the time of the auction start and until the end time, you may submit bids to EventAuction via forum PM.
  • Bids must have a subject line consisting of your ocean, pirate name and your bid in PoE. (e.g. Sage, Grandpamoneybags, 5,420,000). Without a valid subject line, your PM will be ignored.
  • Your chosen familiar species and color should be in the body of the PM.
  • Your PoE must be on the pirate named at the end of the auction.
  • At the endtime the highest bid will be identified from the subject line. We will check that the PoE bid is on the pirate named, and if it is, the PoE will be exchanged for the familiar requested in the PM.
  • If the familiar or color(s) requested are not valid, we will move onto the next highest bidder.
  • If there is insufficient PoE on the named pirate to cover the bid, we will move onto the next highest bidder.

So, please get your PM subject line right, and make sure that the familiar and color(s) you request are available.

Excluded familiars: ippolito, serpent
Excluded colors: solid white, solid black, and limited edition colors.

Colors can be seen on these pages:
Parrot,
Monkey,
Octopus.

Slightly under an hour remaining. If you're going to bid send them in to EventAuction soon!

Sadly I didn't receive a single bid from a Sage pirate, so I'll be keeping a familiar of my choice.

Re: Familiar Silent Bid Auction [Sage 3pm May 26th]

Just agh , I'm not sure if i should laugh at the irony or cry :P
I saw Castor's post then :
Kickoo flag royalty chats, "fam silent bid auction"
Kickoo flag royalty chats, "lol i should bid 3.2 mil, imagine if no one had any better bid"
Kickoo flag royalty chats, "what a nice way to turn 3.2 mil to 6-7 mil"

But i didn't as i released bidding time is over , I wonder if i have won if i had bid anyway :P

AGH! :P

Re: Familiar Silent Bid Auction [Sage 3pm May 26th]

I think the very random period (ending at 3pm on Saturday?) hurt it. I was going to bid 10k 'just for laughs,' but by the time I remembered it it was 20 minutes past the deadline.

Well atleast the familiar isn't sold for 200K, like in Hunter.
Good deal.
