A small sign said:AUCTION OPEN ONLY TO ADVENTURERS WHO WERE IN ATTENDANCE AT THE NOVEMBER GATHER
Bids will be taken until midnight, the morning of the Thursday before the gather. (12/11)
Payment is due before Tadeusz goes to bed the following Saturday.
Lot #15 (of 18): (Celestial) Elemental Imbuement
This ritual is cast on a weapon.
As both a practitioner of the Celestial arts and a swordsman, it's often hard to decide whether to stab an enemy, or to burn them. Well, friends, the winner of this lot can do both at the same time. The wielder of a weapon enchanted with this effect can empower their blows with the raw power of an evokable element (so that's Stone, Lightning, Ice, or Flame) for about ten minutes. Everyone knows Luke secretly wishes he had a sword wreathed in lightning. Make Luke jealous - get your bids in now.
WINNING BID: 12 gold to Morriden
Alternate: Lighthouse, for 11 gold
Fine Print said:
- All lots on auction are ritual scrolls - not the resulting items
- All bids are binding - no retractions. (Be careful if you bid on multiple lots)
- If the winner of a bid is not present or unable to pay by the deadline, that person will be mocked and the person with the 2nd highest will be given an opportunity to pay the amount they bid for the scroll. If they are unable/unwilling, the scroll will be considered loot for the new gather. (No one wants this, it sucks, don't be "that guy")
- Invalid bids (such as bids from adventurers who were not present at the last gather) will be reversed, with the "current bid" being reset to the last resolution of conflict between valid bids
