The Auction House is in the Community Roleplaying section of the forums. As such, the auctioning of goods and services should be done in a manner that promotes roleplay (RP)—and not simply be treated as an extension of cash grinding. This is not an MMO: All auctions are to be done in an In Character (IC) fashion.

Here is a basic example of what an auction post should look like:

Friendly Arm Inn - Elminister - Longsword of Radiant Light

As you can see here, auctions should be labeled by the city in which they are taking place, or the region. For example, Baldur's Gate, Beregost, Doron Amar, Roaringshore, Sshamath, etc. The auction's title shall also include the name/pseudonym of the PC making the sale—though the sale can be conducted by a fence or merchant PC (whether or not this PC belongs to the seller or to another player). This allows for the usage of a Mule PC for such matters, if desired.

Bids must be done In Character by the actual PC who is looking to buy the item. This may lead to some interesting circumstances, and promote RP. This means some sales will have a certain group, or individual PCs, blacklisted from them, but this is only how it should be.

Underdark (UD) and Surface players selling items to each other is prohibited, unless it is conducted in-game and in-character (essentially, your PC must be able to travel between the two regions). There will be NO AUCTION HOUSE TRANSACTIONS IN THE NEXUS BETWEEN UD AND SURFACE PCS.

The Nexus does not exist as a part of the BG:TSSC roleplaying environment. It is simply a game mechanic, not an actual location. Once again, this is to promote RP in the actual game world.

As many players already follow these Auction House forum rules, they have the thanks and applause of the DM staff. If a posted auction does not comply with the rules above, a DM will either give you a warning or disable (lock) the auction until the player corrects it.

Thank you, and happy auctioning.

NOTE: "Seeking" threads, where the character is seeking an item or service, although less common than the "selling" threads, should likewise comply with the above rules.

Bumping this thread.

While it's not particularly heavily enforced by the DMs, these rules are still in place regarding the forum auctioning. It's meant to serve as a decorum and roleplay standard.

Many players won't even post in your threads unless they adhere to these rules.

Lore Base of the 1352 Campaign

Campaign State of Affairs - 1352 - Year of the Dragon
