Reply with Quote

Event: The High Council's Box Auction & Officer Auction
Date: Thursday 6th of August - 2pm game time (5pm EST)

Description:

Come test your luck at our mystery box auction and win yourself a familiar or other valuable prizes at favourable odds. You can join us and help support a growing flag as 100% of the proceeds will go into the flag funds. Prizes will also be given away randomly or through trivia to participants or guests at the flag hall throughout the event.

The auction will be held at The High Council's Flag Hall on Admiral Island at 2pm game time (5pm EST) on Thursday, August 6th, 2020.

On that day, you can /tell any of The High Council's royals for an invite or come on your own using the event tab on the Notice Board or by knocking on the door at the Pirate Hall. Event will be put on notice board an hour in advance so feel free to show up early and get some trivia prizes while you wait!

Bidding will be starting at 150k, increasing bids in increments of 5k+ and BIN at 420k ;) ... because we're The High Council for a reason!

In addition to these boxes, we are also going to have a fun officer auction after a brief intermission following the box auction so we can take a break and hand out prizes. You can bid for the officers (non-royals) of THC starting at 69k and the royals will start at 420k. There will be no bin for the officers. Since there is no bin for the officer auction, if you are not around you can place a silent bid by signing the guestbook at the flag hall prior to the auction and we will start at your bid. If no one outbids you, you will be the winner.

Please note the locations people are in for convenient time zones, and the tasks they're willing to complete.

Wiplasher (North America) - open minded

TERMS OF SERVICE:

1) In order to raise no suspicion among fellow pirates and especially our bidders, the prizes will be wrapped in boxes all of the same colour by Greecesalt with no numbers on them, then passed to Zengris (Update: Zen was busy, made Wiplasher do this instead) who will number them, and finally traded to Greecefeva to place in the hall.

2) Payments can only be given to Zengris during the event or Greecefeva for binned boxes prior to the event, no other pirate is authorized to accept payments.

3) If for any reason you cannot be present on the day of the auction, you can still pre-bid a particular number for the 420k BIN by contacting Greecefeva in game, replying to the forum, or through discord to save a box. Payment will be required in advance in order for your box to officially be considered saved.

4) All boxes (pre bid or not) will be delivered to their rightful winner, by Greecefeva at the end of the event (or whenever you log on AFTER the event has ended).

5) If your box contains a greeting card for an item or set that could not be wrapped, please trade it into Lenabobenna for the actual items. (This is also my alt so please be patient and let me trade all of the boxes off of my main first before you attack me for the other stuff :P)

6) 100% of all auction earnings will be going directly to The High Council flag funds.

7) To remain on theme, boxes 4, 20, and 42 will be numbered as 4(20), (4)20 and 42(0). Please note this has no added value, it's just to be fun. The items in each box are still incredibly random so your odds of getting any item does not change due to the fun numbering on these boxes.

*** Officer Auction Details ***
All of the below details pertain to the officer auction. We encourage you to reach out to the officer you would like to purchase and see if they are willing and available for the task ahead of time if you have a specific task or date in mind. Please communicate with your officer, if they are willing to go beyond these rules in terms of date, length of service, damages, etc. then we can't stop you. The key is to keep everything mutual regardless of whether or not it's in our rules.

8) For the officer auction, you can bid for 1 consecutive hour of the officer's time. Because real life is a thing, you must claim their time within 30 days (Deadline: Sept 5) otherwise you forfeit their services. Officers will try to be available but the date/time must be mutually agreed upon. If you win a royal, the time it takes to do the portrait will not be counted.

9) Any task you request of the officer (eg. running a cit run for you, playing poker for you, greedy bashing for you) that required poe or materials must be provided by the buyer at their own risk unless the officer is feeling generous. Any damages or losses will be the responsibility of the buyer. The officer is not responsible for any damages or losses and will not be replacing anything. Additionally, if you purchase someone to nav or wager for you, etc. then you will be the beneficiary of the profits such as poe or VOs, etc.

10) Inappropriate, disrespectful or bannable tasks cannot be asked of the officer. Remember that this is more lighthearted so if you're buying someone to annoy them, troll them but don't hurt them in any way. Feel free to ask your officer of their limits or ask them for suggestions if needed.

11) You cannot purchase someone for the purpose of joining a tournament or competition for you.

12) You cannot purchase someone for the purpose of hurting their stats, ranks or reputations.

13) You cannot use the officer for political tasks such as promoting or demoting people, blockading islands, alliance decisions, etc.

14) You cannot take or borrow items from the officer.

15) Suggestions of tasks you can put your officer up to: Running a SMH, pillage or greedy bash for you, doing labour at your shop, wagering in puzzles for you, have them do a specific puzzle for you on your run (either something they're good at so you can benefit, or something they hate so you can torture them :P), have a little date or 1 on 1 time with them, or if they're up for it you can buy them just to troll them and make them read a stupid book out loud on discord for you. A lot of the participants are open minded so think outside the box, just chat with them to make sure they're okay with it.

16) Once you bid on an item, your bid is binding and you are obligated to pay for that item. There is no backing out or refunds, so make sure you bid with purpose and bet at your own risk! Refunds will only be given out if the pirate gets banned before Sept 5th or hasn't logged on before Sept 5th without providing their service. Sales are final but you can transfer or resell your prize.

17) OM disclaimer to save them the trouble: Please note that this event, as with any lottery, raffle or auction, is run at the risk of the participants. If there is shown to be cheating or wrongdoing, the culprit will be punished, but no poe will be returned to participants affected. Please only enter if you trust the person or people hosting the event or want to support the cause. By bidding on any of the above items you agree to not only our terms of service but also to YPP's terms. Please see: http://www.puzzlepirates.com/Terms.xhtml

Cheers! :)
