Ictinus, the Architect
Imminent Auctions

Hi folks!

About an hour from now at the howling, a round of auctions will be going live! In total there are 7 credit auctions, 5 iron coin auctions, and 5 gold auctions.

Some notes:

- The auctions will run for 10 real days.
- Any artifacts bought through auctions (including gold items) cannot be traded in or have their powers transferred.
- Credit auctions do not require you to have the credits on hand to bid.
- Gold auctions do require you to have the gold on hand to bid.
- When auctions end, we allow a week to gather the winning bid amount. Failure to meet the bid amount after this time will result in loss of character until the cost is settled.
- Bound credits CAN be used to pay for auctions.
- HELP AUCTIONS and HELP AUCTIONHOUSE both have additional details.

- Bids are final, and we will not reverse mistakes. If something is not clear about an item, you are welcome to ask me for more details prior to bidding. Please be absolutely sure before placing a bid.

Without further ado, here are the listings that will go live when the time comes. You will also now be able to see information on the lots using AUCTION INFO <auction> once they're up.
