HoMM3: Million GP Auction

Postby asandir » Aug 16 2007, 2:12

Heroes of Might and Magic 3 - the Auction

Alright ladies and gentlemen, strap on on your seatbelts, and hold onto your hats, the auction is BACK! This time we travel back to a time where heroes had their place .... in the back lines of combat .... a time when Grandmaster Combat and Potions of Immortality were a pipedream by 3DO designers, when adventure AI worked (ok, worked a little bit), a time before memory leaks .... (ok I can't back that one up) .... a time of restoration

First off, many thanks to Gravyluvr for all his hard work on the last auction, I am planning to steal all of your hard work and take it for my own, so I guess I should thank you profusely at the start :)

I guess the biggest difference between Gravy's auction and mine, is that his had a purpose (sort of :) ) and mine's just for fun!

10gp for the The Auctioneer's soul.

BTW, it might have been a good idea to hold off making this thread until the sign-up was over with. Also, you might want to have gravy killed before he sues.

Can we like...bid now? ;|

If so, then...:oex:

I bid on the Everpouring Vial of Mercury and the Four Leaf Clover.
