Ever wanted to get Talzhemir to draw you a sketch, have Felorin write a limerick
about you, or have one of our staff visit your dream and say hi to everyone? Just for fun, we auctioned off
some of our time to the highest bidders! All bidding was done in Golden DragonScales. Our server could use a
few more gigabytes of RAM, so we're going to use the money to pay for that, and make Furcadia better for
everyone! We also used this to test out the first version of a new auction system that you'll be able to use to
run your own auctions in your dreams.
How did it work?
The Celebrity Auction took place in the Celebration dream, and was a live auction! There was a "bid" command
you could use during each auction. It only accepted your bid if it was higher than the last bid placed. You
also needed a certain number of DragonScales to be able to bid - or even to enter the auction room. Bidders
didn't necessarily have to have the full amount, but we required some to keep people from disrupting the
auction with bids they didn't mean to honor. Those with less than 20 Golden DragonScales, had that as their
bidding limit. Those with 20 could bid up to 49 Scales. Those with 50 could bid as high as 99. And
anyone with 100 DragonScales or more could bid as high as they liked. If someone brings that many Scales, we
believe they're really serious about the auction!
Preferred seating was also available based on how many DragonScales the bidders had, in reverse order. First
people with 100 or more DragonScales entered the room, then those with 50 Scales, and so on down until everyone
The auction was broadcast live from the auction room on the =event channel, and we've included the log
You must be 18 to place bids in any auction.
So, what was on offer?

Bio: Farrier is the AIC of the bugges, and joint AIC for the Scribes. He joined Furcadia five years ago this month, and has almost never been seen since. He is notoriously reclusive, which makes this one of the few chances most furres would get to ever see him! |
How much Farrier does your scales get you?
Farrier's ladder is additive. If you bid for any item, you're also bidding for every item cheaper than it on his list.
1 CD - One word whispered per CD to anyone you want, spread over up to ten whispers. You can choose what he says... or you can risk letting him choose!
1 SD - One cookie per SD, to a maximum of ten cookies, to anyone you want.
1 SD or more - 15 seconds of Farrier's time on Furcadia per SD, with no maximum (equal to 24GD/hr), doing... anything you like! Farrier's fortť is programming and bug-testing (web pages, dreams, bots, proxies, you name it), but you don't have to restrict yourself to that! Socialising? Art? Poetry? Posing silently as a garden gnome for your dream's garden party? Lecturing you and your friends on the finer points of the Glaswegian cabbage industry? You choose! Even better, if he doesn't have to be online to what you've asked, you'll get twice as much time for the money! Very handy for programming tasks.
50 GD - You get an emailed PDF "telegram" from "Western Onion", written by Farrier. Just because it's something he's been working on IRL lately, and he wants to show it off.
100 GD - As well as Furc, you get simultaneous Skype! MSN Webcam! ICQ! AIM! If he doesn't have an IM client of your choice, he will try to obtain and install it (he runs Win2k or Ubuntu Linux). If you're in London, he'll even meet up!
Farrier isn't available 24/7, and won't do anything forbidden by law, Furcadia rules, or morality. Check before bidding that he is able to do what you want, when you want. He's not a "clock-watcher", and if you get him working on some interesting DS or programming problem, he's likely to be there far beyond the agreed time!
Bio: Rei-Jin is a mish-mash of an educator, a tech-geek, and a community counselor. She enjoys jokes, trivia, a good book, and playing musical instruments. In her time on Furcadia, she has served on Beekin Council for the Guardians and BuggeHunters. Rei-Jin's duties include being the AIC for the Scribe and Welcomer Beekins, in charge of Events, and reigning as the current Queen of Furcadia Email.|

All of the preceeding, plus:
- One additional personal message (family friendly) broadcast to all of Furcadia!
- One website (Up to seven pages) for you or your character
So, how did it go?
The auction itself was far longer (and more fun!) than a log of the event channel could possibly show. However, including the whole log here would be excessive, so we will bring you "just the highlights" from the events channel.
Felorin: Hi everyone, and welcome to our coverage of our first ever Celebrity Auction! If any of you are planning on bidding, come on in to furc://festival2 right now. Otherwise, enjoy the show!
Felorin: Furres are coming in to our auction and finding seats, we'll be starting soon. This is exciting, our first ever auction! If the programming works out well, we may be releasing this to the public, so you dream owners can run their own auctions in their dreams.

Felorin: And Gar has been sold to Friendly Sammy for 300 Golden DragonScales!
Felorin: Next up, our Welshman behind the scenes, Farrier, has done more things to help with our Furcadia technology than almost anyone. Helping with web and database work as well as running our Bugge Hunters, he also is responsible for adapting Terry Pratchett's game Thud to the Internet.
Talzhemir: Bid well for this canine Cymric. He can even help you with things you didn't know needed helping!

Felorin: Now this is no fair at ALL. How could I possibly say anything nice enough about Rei-Jin?
Felorin: Rei-Jin is possibly the most helpful person on the entire planet Earth. She helps us with everything imaginable, and some things not imaginable. She also answers a lot of our emails, maybe she's answered one of yours! Bid on her and you can get her to run a game in your ream, draw you portrait art, or even make you a website!
Felorin: And we have 20 bid on Rei-Jin by Jesto. 21 by Cruncher!
Felorin: Wotty bids 30!
Felorin: We have LuneRyuu at 40, Wotty bids 50, enough for a game of Hayfurre Tag!

Felorin: Bidding on Rei-Jin is up to 65 DragonScales now by Cruncher. Will they bid up to 100 to get Rei-Jin to draw a portrait for the winner?
Felorin: We're up to 81 DragonScales from Cruncher! 82 from wottyy!
Felorin: And we have 99 DragonScales from wottyy! I'm going to throw in an extra scale of my own so he can get the portrait drawn for him.

Felorin: After the third and final on 102, we have a surprise bid of 110 from Raz!
Felorin: And we have 130... Now 140!
Felorin: And we're up to 141 DragonScales from wottyy! People just aren't willing to give up on Rei_jin!

Felorin: And we have a bid of 200 from Raz!
Felorin: The Rei-Jin bidding war continues, she's up to 220 DragonScales now!

Felorin: Next up is me. Wow. What can I say about myself that I haven't said already before?
Felorin: If people bid enough, I'm offering.... stuff. Let's see, I'll write limericks about you and your friend, visit your dream, for enough I'll even do a system broadcast of your choice. (No vegematic ads or elephant jokes though.)
Felorin: I'm cute, I'm stripey, I made Furcadia with Talzhemir, I worked on dozens of other games for home computers and videogame systems... I'll make you an origami dragon even! I'm good at those. I also have a devious sense of humor, a broad overview of all the world's knowledge, and I can turn gold into chocolate with a wave of my paw.
Felorin: We have 31 Scales from Toast! 33 from Skadowee!
Felorin: We have 45 from Raz!
Felorin: And the bidding on Felorin (that's me!) is up to 62! Am I going to go at a bargain price here?
Felorin: We have 100 DragonScales bid by Randi Allah!
Felorin: Bids on Felorin are up to 110. Will he set a new record for the lowest price at tonight's auction? Did all the big bidders get tired and go home? Will the butler marry the barber's daughter? Tune in next week and find out!

Felorin: And the bidding is up to 168 by Randi Allah!

Felorin: Thanks to all our bidders tonight for helping us get more RAM for the server. www.youlanda.com/misc/pwn/furcmoarram.jpg The auction was such a success we'll be using some of the money when we add on another server machine too. Thanks again and goodnight!
