TOPIC: Zorblak's SC lightning auction - Failed to fund

Zorblak's SC lightning auction - Failed to fund 1 year 3 months ago #1

It looks like nobody is running an auction right now, and I've been wanting to give it a try for a while, so here we go!

Auction rules (these should look pretty familiar, I'm trying to go with standard rules):

As the auction progresses, if it looks like we are not meeting the goal, I may add a few things to augment, I'm really hoping to get this funded.

In order for the auction to be successful, the grand total of all bids above the minimum must reach $7500. As soon as that happens, the auction will end immediately. If the bidder that pushes us over has multiple bids, I’ll process that entire bid list.

If the auction fails to meet the minimum, I may choose to go forward or call the whole thing off.

Bidding is eBay style:
  • Bids are sent to me via PM
  • You must bid at least the current bid + the bid increment.
  • Bid increment on items less than $10: 25 cents
  • Bid increment on items greater than or equal to $10 and less than $50: $1
  • Bid increment on items greater than or equal to $50: $5
  • The winning bid amount is the lesser of the 2nd highest bid + the bid increment and the highest bid.
  • In the event that multiple bidders all bid the same highest amount, the earliest bid will win it.

This auction style rewards early bidding, as you win ties and people must raise the bid by at least the bid increment to take it from you. Since the price is set by the 2nd highest bidder, you may enter your top bid initially and never overpay.

Bidding ends on Monday, March 6th at 10pm EST/9pm PST, or as soon as the minimum funding goal is reached.

There will be no extensions (aside from technical difficulties).

Payment is required through PayPal via friends and family. All winning bids will have 48 hours after close of the auction to provide payment. Any unpaid item(s) after allowed time will defer their winning bid and the next highest bidder will be offered the item at their maximum bid price of the item(s).

Shipping within the US will be $10 up to 150 tokens, $17 for more than 150 tokens. International shipping is at the actual cost of shipping. Shipping will occur within 1 week of receiving the tokens from True Dungeon, though probably sooner than that.

As always, please reach out with any questions/feedback. Thanks!

That's a great question. I'm not entirely sure how those work. It seems that some auctions have them and some don't, so I didn't want to be presume. If TPTB give me a sign that there will be a favor, I'll add it to the auction list.

Updated with some more bids. We're off to the races!

I also added in the Charm of Biting, which I've been informed is now included in 8K orders. I hadn't realized that, apologies for omitting it in the original post.
