    What is it?
    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.

    When is it?
    Every other Sunday 12pm - 2pm CT (NBT, GMT-6:00). See NBNN calendar for dates.

    Where is it?
    Veritas Sanctuary, north of Aerie and south of Blood River

    How does it work?
    Auction starts on time and ends on time. All items are traded to an Escrow Officer (at reception) immediately before the auction, who will complete the trade to the highest bidder and distribute the proceeds to the seller after the lot, thereby maintaining anonymity of seller. Players must wave from their seat to bid. Starting bids are based on fair-market value. Message Psyche Aetherfract in-game (or @Psyche in forums and discord) if you would like to auction an item.

    Process, Rules, and Regulations

    Thanks to the contribution of an amazing crowd, I am happy to announce the first edition was a success.
    The Auction will be held biweekly, the second edition is scheduled for the 22nd of October starting at 12PM CDT.
    The amount of auction lots that I’ll accept are limited, in case you would like to submit an item you are most welcome but sooner rather than later.
    I am looking for up to four musicians to form a band for the Auction event, each performance every band member will be rewarded with a pay check.

    Reach out to me on discord Psyche#6972, the forum @Psyche or in game ‘Psyche Aetherfract’ for additional information, suggestions or to submit auction lots.
