Pirate Auction! Raised 1,307,400 AND 8 Gold Ore!

Sunday, October 1st, 4pm PDT. The auction will take place in the palace on Hephaestus Forge.
(In case the auction overlaps with a blockade, I will extend the auction to the end of the blockade.)

Woot! Who doesn't love a pirate auction? This here auction be for the sole purpose of raising prize funds for the Midnight Birthday Bash event (Event will be posted soon!) I am in no way affiliated with any flag.

All of our pirates on the auction block will be 'sold' for a period of one hour - dates and times to be set between the buyer and the person 'bought'. You may not use them for anything that would go against their own flag/flag affiliations, nothing against the ToS, and certainly nothing that could get them banned from the game. Generally they will be giving you 1 hour of puzzling time.

Note: The pirates up for auction will NOT give you anything! If they have familiars, they will not let you wear them!

Some of the mates on my list won't be able to make it to the actual auction but they have assured me they will still honor their winning bids. If ye can't make it to the auction to bid on someone, you may PM me with your bid. If you PM a bid, I will state your bid at the beginning of said pirates time on the block.

You will need to check with the person you are buying to be sure they will do what you want them to! I would hate for ye to buy someone for their awesome distilling skills and they tell ye no!

Ok! Who is up for grabs?? In alphabetical order..

Re: Pirate Auction! Sunday, October 1st

I would also like to add that whoever purchases me can choose between pillaging time or an avatar created by me. Maybe that will get you some more poez Taco.

[whining]Can't I do both? As the person who bids on me might not like my pillaging skillz or get an avatar by me in the prize pool for the event. [/whining]

Ok enough joking around....
I'll definitely donate one to the prize pool for you though and I'm willing to help you out anyway I can just let me know. <3

I find it highly unfair that you're auctioning us without auctioning yourself. I believe I speak for all of us when I suggest that it's just plain wrong to subject the rest of us to being locked in basements, forced to bilge, be made to propose to random people, and have our forum signatures molested while you gaily count your filthy lucre. Please add yourself. Or instead of <3 I <2.

Re: Pirate Auction! Sunday, October 1st

Who can resist Taco? I offer up
1 hour of puzzling
or...
1 hour of charting you wherever your heart desires if you're looking for charting/memming assistance. Willing to puzzle and press 'set sail' button and rechart you while you stay in nav puzzle so that we can both remain in our respective crews.

Event is on October 1st? Okay, winning bidder on me has 30 days to arrange a mutually agreeable date to cash in on puzzling goodness.

Re: Pirate Auction! Sunday, October 1st

You're welcome to auction a couple of hours of my pillaging time also if you wish, or some shipwright labour, whichever someone prefers.

I see many, many names I want to buy... I'm gonna have to start saving!

Teh Taco!

I hereby offer myself up for an hour of puzzling goodness [blockading against my flag or my allies is excluded] on any of the ship duty puzzles (though you don't want me gunning, lol).

I would alternately be willing to provide a couple hours of expert distilling labor.

I would also be willing to donate something to your prize list for the actual event.

Re: Pirate Auction! Sunday, October 1st

Got any cheap pirates up for auction yet? lol

Well, you can now. I doubt I will go for very much, especially as my Middy characters have little to no stats. But, if you want, you can add me as well, as Laice.

I can pillage, I can blockade, I can shipwright, I can distill. ( shipwright I can usually get expert, distill only managed skilled so far.)

About the only puzzle I refuse to do for an hour, is Alchemy. I'd rather be pelted with rotten fruit.

My Cobalt piracy skills, if anyone is interested, are as follows:

SF: Renowned/GM
Bilge: GM
Sailing: GM
Nav: Dist.
Bnav: Master
Gunnery: Master
Carp: GM
Rumble: Resp.

So... not great, but decent. :)

( And, by the way... If you weren't running it, I probably wouldn't bother, Taco... LOVE yer events:) will help in any way I can.)
