strewn about the streets of Dalaran, of Orgrimmar, of Stormwind and even those of Thunder Bluff to Silvermoon and Darnassus to Ironforge; there comes a wave of fliers that adhere to every wall and alley*

 

*Sponsored by the Borrowed Time company*
 

Come one come all!

To further relations between the Horde and Alliance, we are proud to announce a fundraising event that is sure to be worth every copper spent!

The Mystery Auction Extravaganza!

A one-time event that is sure to have you on the edge of your seats with the sheer suspense of it all! Come buy yourself a date, based not on race nor faction nor even looks! Buy them from self-made cards describing themselves for that pure mystery of an unknown rendezvous!

 

What could he or she be? An orc? A dwarf? A tauren? A kaldorei? Who knows!

 

All are welcome to join us January 7th at 6pm on the goblin clock; with our hosts of Phyruss Arath’dorei who will be announcing and bidding on behalf of our wonderful women and the beautiful Siane who will be representing our hunky men!

 

*Fine Print*

Purchasing a date does not constitute offers of sexual favors in exchange for money. All dates are confirmed eligible of age and are of their own minds. All contestants are guaranteed safety on their dates, covered by Borrowed Time, Sanctuary, and Twilight Empire enforcers.

Obey the rules or they break your face.

 

((OOC))

 

So the rules are as follows!

 

-The Biddees are to write a 255 character maximum description of their characters, without using any proper nouns; i.e. Faction, Race, Names, Guilds, etc. They are asked to instead describe personality, hobbies, ideas for a date, anything to represent themselves before an audience.

If you would rather not write one, we can write one for you! Send a description to us, but it's all the more fun if you do it yourselves to best give the full disclosure on your character, right?

-On Jan. 7th, there will be a Discord up for cross-faction RP, but the auction itself will be transpiring in Old Dalaran in the Legerdemain Lounge. In-game RP is encouraged, but we also hope to make use of this server to talk between Horde and Alliance!

-Its up to you and the person you won to set the dates for your schedules to best go on them!

-We hope to be able to use real gold for this, but with enough protest, we might just switch to RP currency with a longer time limit. With real gold however, we will be able to purchase gifts for those who participate!

-The rule for actual gold: 2 minute auction time, can only do a max increase of 100g until the bud reaches 2000+, then the bids come with a maximum of 200. RP currency, the time limit will be 3 minutes with 50g increments.

-Your description will be sold on that night, not necessarily you! So this way, this allows your character to not have to attend the night themselves if you have a conflicting issue, or wish to come on a different character to place bids!

-Dates don’t have to be romantic! Buy someone who sounds like you’d have fun with!

-Please whisper Cobrak on Discord, or PM me on wow-tng with your descriptions! And honor code here, but don't tell anyone what you wrote for maximum surprise!

Thank you everyone who attended! As with the first date auctions, the organizers learned a few lessons on how to ensure everyone has the most fun, but it seems like a good time was generally had by all! We wanted the most people to have the most fun, and I hope y'all enjoy your random RP!

I’m one hell of a beautiful bitch. I’m angry most of the time. I’m honorable as I can be. Fighting is one of my favorite things. I’m strong as fuck, and could deadlift anything short of a fel reaver. War is my profession, when I’m not smithing.

Nathaniel - 1300g
I like to spend time in the company of an interesting person. Notice that I didn't say "people," because when there is only one I am truly take in their brilliance and learn about who they are; their hopes and dreams, what they're doing and where they've been. I'm an avid listener but I'm also willing to the lead. I have strong hands that can protect you, nimble feet that can dance with you, and a mind fit to entertain you long into the night. I love science and I love a little bit of danger. Tea is my favourite thing to drink and furs by the fire are my favourite place to cuddle.

Won by: Tirien

Rupert Coldwater - 500g
He's a man of coin by day, but a man of whispers by night. His ideal date involves showering his special someone with copious amounts of gifts and treasures. He enjoys rainy days, for even the dullest blade can be a precious collectible. He's only 5' 3", but he'll be the first to tell you he's massively sized in other ways. In fact, he's so adaptable, he'll go both ways.

Won by: Rhork

 

Un’qo - 3800g
Honor. Peace. And Family. Standing at 9' 1", the cold doesn't bother this fellow. He may appear rather shy and standoffish, but he's just a fixer-upper doing something new for the first time in forever. Only one question: do you wanna build a snowman?

Won by: Vilmah

Won by: Aneerys

(Very glad people enjoyed my cards! I truly laughed out loud at Rand's reactions to my shenanigans. The savagely written card for Kiannis was also done by a mischievous Fay. I was laughing so hard.  Writing cards for two hunters might not have been the safest of ideas but now I own them both for an evening so my plan worked! *fans self with cards* awww yassss. Now to figure out how to top this while I dodge arrows)
