Catalyst Auction: Bottle of Time

Greetings, friends!

The following auction is for a Bottle of Time, the catalyst for the Regeneration ritual.

It is my belief that an item auction should be available to those who were involved in its attainment. I've done some thinking on this, as it's my desire to be consistent with my stances on such things of a delicate nature.

To that end, this auction is an open auction to all those involved in the fight against the Legion on the Saturday evening. I expect this is most, if not all, of the town that was present. However, this auction is -not- open to those who were not there.

To bid, please send me a message with your bid amount. Bids placed here on the dreamscape will not count, as I would like to provide the bidders with the option to be anonymous. Bids will assumed to be anonymous unless the bidder states otherwise. Please assume that your name will still be shared with my ally, Taliya. Bids who come from an individual that was not present during the battle will be declined.

The spirit of this auction is that this ritual catalyst stays amongst the people who worked to get it. Such auctions are not done like this, usually, as there is a concern that it won't always go to people who are often amongst the community. Sometimes items are acquired through the efforts of small groups who accomplish a specific goal, and what they do with the items they locate is their business.

This particular item was acquired from the troll Musta, who...essentially tore into all of us, like we were so much wet parchment. So we defeated him as a town, and we will split the proceeds of the auction (minus 4 gold, the payment for the mystic wood elf who took a list of names for me) as a town.

Consider this a symbol of our unity. We truly need more of those.

Additionally, I am still gathering the names of all those who were present, and I will be listing those soon, on this dream.

This auction concludes the Friday before the next gathering, by midday (Noon, May 29), or 24 hours after the last bid (whichever comes later). I will announce the results afterwards.

The auction begins at 50 gold from me!

While the idea of a public auction is foreign to me as I am used to being part of a purely military command where resources are given out to people as needed to accomplish their given mission, I am please to see that this catalyst is being handled this way. I appreciate you taking the lead on this, Zeth.

It was a lot of words, so I can see how that part might have been missed.

4 gold will go to Addilyn, who took names for me.

The remaining will be split amongst the participants of the fight, equally.

Thank you, I am sorry I missed that. I read the 4 gold part but some how missed the other part.

Modified the end time, as I realized that, by hosting the auction, I was giving people a large advantage for waiting until the last second....myself, primarily.

So if there's active bidding going on at the end, it'll be extended until 24 hours after the last bid is recorded, to give everyone fair opportunity to respond.

My name is Polare, not Polara. That would be my evil twin sister, if I had one.

I apologize, Lord Polare...evil dream spirits invaded and twisted your identity as a means of a cruel joke.

It was in no way a reflection of a haunted memory of your swaying hips.

The auction was closed for awhile, but I failed to communicate that. However, the bidding did not change, so the item was sold for 150 gold!

I will begin distributing coin at Elara. People have until then to inform me that they are not on this list, but are supposed to be.

Current list: 56 people. Addilyn receives four gold for her assistance in gathering names. That leaves 146 gold to be distributed, or 2 gold, 6 silver per person.

Barring considerable disagreement, I will use the remaining 4 silver to purchase some basic potions, that I will provide to newer adventurers in our community. This seems like the simplest way to distribute such a small amount of coin.
