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 #7 (of 18): (Earth) Quicken Aid
Be aware that there are 3 of these scrolls up for auction, in separate lots.
Here's a thing that experienced adventurers know: There are things in Fortannis that can cause magical healing to have no effect on a person. If a person under this effect is on the brink of death, the only thing that can keep them from dying is mundane first aid. But pop quiz, how do you administer first aid while not also dying to the thing that mostly-killed your friend? The answer is this ritual, which allows you to completely stabilize them in mere seconds. It's a great utility ritual at a low opening bid.
WINNING BID: 5 gold to Kel
Alternate: Mortikai, for 4 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
