Vesper Auction House
Here are the stats from the first Vesper Auction of 2015:
79 lots auctioned, 281,337,000 total sales, highest purchase was the Vas In Corp Del Grav – Greater Glacial Field Scroll Conjured by Lieutenant Baelgard scroll for 50,000,000
The first auction of the year was a great time. There were a lot of awesome items including some high end ones as well. No auction is complete with comments from the peanut gallery and some drama involved. This auction was better! The night started out like a typical Friday at the Vesper Auction. Some nice items were sold and buyers were trying to wake up Jack Sparrow. Jack seemed to have stayed out late the night prior and was possibly suffering the after effects of a night of drinking too much ale at the local tavern. At one point as someone yelled to him, he awoke with a jump and instinctively bid 1 million.
Breaks are taken every hour on the hour and the first one was special. OC deiced that it was a perfect time to propose to short time (and I do mean short time :P) lady love Red Snapper. There were some shouts of encouragement, some shouts of it is a life sentence, and someone even commented that it would be awkward if she said no. The UO Gods must have been looking down fondly on OC and Red Snapper said YES!
The auction continued but stopped at one point to investigate a claim made about one of the auction items that had just been purchased for a very hefty sum. Ivy and Victor did some quick investigating and decided that the claim had some validity and the item was pulled. The seller was not aware of the issue and was free from blame. Vesper Auction House protects its buyers and sellers and I applaud them for their due diligence!
