  • If you want to sell something, leave it in an envelope with your full details: Player Name, Member Number, Character Name, Character number and the minimum bid price that you wish to place on the item.
  • There is now a specific “Auction Box” for envelopes to leave me stuff and to collect payments and items from. It’s kept behind the desk with the guild boxes just ask whoever is desking to put any envelopes you have in it or to check for any envelopes that you are waiting for. [26/5/19]
  • The auction charges the seller 1,000 Grulls per sale of a personalised item
  • The auction charges the seller 500 Grulls per sale of anything that is not personalised, e.g. Standard Potions, Scrolls and so forth.
  • If you wish to sell an item anonymously there is a 500G fee. All details of the sale are then proofed against Scrying
Bidding: There is a minimum bid increase of the same amounts as the charge to sell. I.e.:
  • All bids on items must be at 1,000G more than the current bid
  • All bids on non-personalised items must be at least 500G more than the current bid
  • Certain items that have great interest shown in them may also specify higher minimum bid increases for that specific lot.
  • If you wish to buy an item anonymously there is a 500G fee. All details of the sale are then proofed against Scrying
  • Where two bids are received for the same amount the first to reach me is listed as the current bidder
  • You may elect to make a bid and state your maximum that you are willing to bid to and you will be listed as the current bidder until such time as someone bids over your maximum. Any bids received that are greater than your current bid will cause your current bid to be increased to that (i.e. you will be considered the first bid to reach me until your maximum has been surpassed)
  • To register your bid email it to icehold @ hotmail.co.uk with DDC at the start of the subject header.
  • If you do not put DDC in the header the bid will most likely be ignored as it will not be correctly forwarded, or as has been happening recently, get eaten by an overactive SPAM filter Do not PM bids as these are very likely to be overlooked.
  • If it is the first time you have sent me an email it is worth letting me know if it looks like the bid has been ignored. Hotmail SPAM filters now tend to eat unrecognised emails so I need to add you to my email address book so it recognises you as non-spam.
  • For personalised items The owner of the highest bid displayed for a week wins the lot.
  • For non-personalised items the Auctioneers may elect to use a shorter period to conclude the sale, this is particularly true for lots that have been available with no other interest for long periods of time and it is clear that no other bids are likely to be offered
  • Make sure than any extra costs above the value of the bid are included, and please count your grulls carefully. I seem to have a had a recent spate of shortages in grulls.
  • For won lots please leave payment in an envelope at the desk for me.
  • Make sure the envelope contains all the details of the person buying the item, what the item is and how much was paid. If you don't I will have no idea who it belongs to otherwise. I won't pass on items till I've got the grulls and I can't pay the vendor until I've got the grulls.
  • An item will be displayed as being sold until such time as the Bidder has paid for the item. Once paid for the Item will be passed onto them and the vendor will receive payment minus the auctioneer’s fee.
  • All good are guaranteed in working order although bear in mind that specific items might require specific skills to use them, e.g. utilise spirit item / EP Item. Scrolls of new colours only usable by New Colour wizards and so forth.
  • Items requiring specific utilise skills are generally noted as such.
  • At the discretion of the auctioneers items not paid for in a timely fashion will be passed on to other interested parties in the best interest of our clients the vendors.
  • Registered members of Halfblack Holdings / House Halfblack will receive a 20% discount on the Auction Charge for the sale of non personalised items, e.g. Standard Potions, Scrolls and so forth will only cost 400 Grulls.
Converting BUD to Uses:
  • This is no longer possible from 15/09/19 due to the system change
