    I've got a decent location that I was trying to sell, my Cove large tower, but since it's not sold yet I decided to pull it for now and try to come up with something neat to do with it to benefit the community and not let it sit there empty.

    One idea I thought of was an auction house.

    Back when Kizama? I think? ran one, it seemed pretty successful. I couldn't find the link to it but seems like people enjoyed it. I think maybe there are a lot more like me who don't really like dealing with the forums much as far as selling things. You might have some semi valuable things laying around that you don't quite want to toss, yet can't really get motivated to list to sell, and maybe you're still holding out hope for cub (insert coming soon in 2035 joke here).

    So, I thought of maybe opening an auction house that we could do maybe weekly or something. I want to think of a format we could use to where it wouldn't have to be completely dependent on me, but I could co own a handful of people who could temporarily friend players who want to sell some things. I would probably keep the house semi-private to restrict access to some areas with the exception of players who are selling things. Additionally, I'd want to make it secure for transactions between the buyer and seller. Perhaps lock down an item for display if it's rare or unique.

    THe large tower might need to be changed into something else more fitting with the layout perhaps.

    What do you all think?

    Auctions were fin but does take a bit of effort to set up and run

    Rat roulette was fun

    Could do a maze where tons of items locked down and player must navigate to top for prize

    My fear is that the people that would show up to the auction house, are high rollers. Casual people like me wouldn't have no chance to win anything. I can barely win on the trade forum!

    Not necessarily, you might have a better chance since there would only be a small amount of people most likely

    Set up an "obstacle course" inside the house filled with traps and have a race to see who dies first.
    Tinker traps and Fire Fields and paralyze fields, whatever.
    Can you craft/loot/get Wrong like trap tiles? Like the buzz saw/poison/flamestrike ones?
