Hospitaller Weekly Voice Meeting (Sundays, 11 AM CT)

- A Public Auction at the Veritas Sanctuary Auction House where any player may list items for sale with the town and any player can bid on them. Common auction rules are followed. Items up for auction typically include high-end crafted gear, artifacts, expired items, add-on store items, telethon or pledge rewards, and more. There is a minimum required value of an item or stack of items for entry into the auction, to discourage auctioning low value items. Mystery lots are also available!
- Ladies and gents! A while ago in the distant past, there were tales of roaving lands of brave, noble adventurers who sought fame and glory in the deepest, darkest reaches that the world could offer. These men and women, gods amongst men, charismatic, beautiful, didn’t do it for the money! No, they did it for the adventure!It’s time we brought it back.The Bear Tavern Pub Crawl, the cross between a riot, a badly organised military operation and a Millwall football hooligan social will be venturing out to ruin the peace and tranquility of New Britannia. We’ll be leaving tactics, careful planning, dignity and most importantly any hope of a long life expectancy well and truly at the door. Instead, we’ll be setting out to stab anything that moves, and loot anything that isn’t nailed down.Details in the forums.
