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 #9 (of 18): (General) Mystic Smith
This ritual targets a suit of armor.
The name isn't as straightforward as some of the other time-saving rituals, but the effect pretty easy to explain: Refitting your armor takes awhile. A Master of the Blacksmith craft can do it in half the time - which is truly amazing to watch, actually - but this ritual allows anyone to completely restore the enchanted suit within a few seconds. Your Earth scholars will thank you, fewer claws will actually get to the parts of you that hurt and bleed, what more could you ask for? If you wear more than leather armor, this is genuinely the best scroll you can bid on in this whole auction.
WINNING BID: 7 gold to Morriden
Alternate: Esth on behalf of the Red Thorn Tribe, for 6 cows
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
