[Server Event] Market Day

Postby booksarefun666 » Tue Jan 17, 2017 10:20 am

Adventurers have been ushering their way into Sarshel after the daemon invasion, attracted to the widespread devastation and turmoil for the opportunities it could produce. As people from various provinces come to Impitur, the demand for equipment to assist with their unique crafts grow increasingly and find their way into hands despite legislation and prohibitions on various items.

As such, it was only matter of time that rumors begun to grow amongst the adventuring segment of the population - that an auction of various wares from the furthest ends of the realm, items secretly "diverted" from the warwands and warswords, and other quality equipment are going to take place in the city of Sarshel.

Those in the know (mainly streetwise rogues and those with reasonable knowledge: local skills) gather that it'll happen in the near future at the seemingly abandoned, boarded up building of Jezebel's in Sarshel south.

While the auction is the main attraction, rumor has it that there'll be lesser quality wares for sale as well for those that aren't quite as affluent.

OOC:

Seeking players that wish to be security (can still participate in the auction) and need an auctioneer. Players that wish to selll their wares in this event may also message me.

Date: Projected to start at February 18th, 1 P.M (GMT -5).

For the record, Ornak would be available for security. Perry would want to bid so not sure that would work for him to be an auctioneer. But his appraise is high if you need him for the job.

Obviously enough, auctioneers wouldn't be able to bid. All positions get compensated, auctioneer might be more lucrative for those with not a copper to their name.

As time carries on, word begins to reveal some of the things on sale... Some of it's too be good to be true, but even credible sources seem to confirm that there'll be barrels of the finest arrows and bolts ever fletched. Generally reserved for war time, a prospective archer can cut through the troublesome war-time service to get their hands on some top quality ammunition.

Some of it also is alleged to be enchanted, blessed by pixies that'll put almost anyone in a daze. Magical bolts all the way from Amn that'll put anyone but the most sturdy in a stun.

Magical bags that make the burden of carrying heavy things lesser somehow?

A box of enchanting reagents that contain one for every school of magic in the form of the most immaculately polished crystaline sphere?

And the best part is... there may be more to come as time carries on.

Auction Catalogue passed around:
Spoiler:
A marketplace of epic proportions! See for yourself the splendors of Jezebel's menagerie of exotic wares for a limited time! Arrows and bolts on sale for a fixed price, rest is to be place on an auction. Dress code is to be observed when at the auction, suits and dresses, and certainly NO ARMOR.

Goods for sale:

Master-crafted arrows: 5 silver for a quiver of twenty-five
Master-crafted bolts: 5 silver for a quiver of twenty-five.
Charged bolts: These paralyze your target for the easy kill! Ten silver for a quiver of twenty-five.
Charge arrows: Daze your target with the utmost ease! Ten silver for a quiver of twenty-five.
Spell reagents: 2 silver per crystal, two per school of magic maximum.


To be auctioned:

Cloak for the aspiiring scout, this will help you hide and get out of tight situations. It is rumored that these are favored by those in Amn.

A diamond necklace, made of nothing but diamonds - so bright that it'll keep even the darkest nights lit up as if you were carrying a torch.

Bracers favored by conjurers and also emit a bright, red light. A must buy for any wizard of discerning taste!

A ring designed to help you see the minute details of everything, also capable of sniffing out magic - slightly used, but still good, GET IT NOW!

Two purse-cutters. Self-explanatory.

A magic bag imported all the way from Amn. Will make anything lighter while also being small enough to wear on your back and big enough to fit a Half-orc, like magic!
