[SOLD] The Cure for Vampirism


The King Of The Moon
 Share

Recommended Posts

[!] Letters are sent to the great leaders of Men across the continent of Almaris, whilst additional copies would be circulated to nondescript traders and caravans throughout the realm. Respectively, each would read:


To His High Holiness, the Pontiff; @Pureimp10

To His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor of Oren; @Nectorist

To His Majesty, the King of Haense; @Xarkly

To His Highness, the Prince of Savoy; @Publius

To His Lordship, the Lord of Du Loc @Shorsand
 

Finally, after decades of experimentation beggining with my late uncle - the Marquis of Izvoroshu - the alchemists of my princely court have produced an elixir of righteous purpose. Unique and unrivalled by the tonics of any wiseman or healer, we have successfully synthesised a medicine capable of curing vampirism. Able to restore an afflicted creature back to their mortal state, freed from the taint of Iblees' parasitic ways. 

A feat achieved without sponsorship nor support from those beyond our small realm, the value of the work we have done for the betterment of all of mankind and the potential it holds to stamp out the vampire plagues of the recent years is not lost on us. Therefore, respecting my Principality's historic neutrality toward all other realms, the recipe shall be offered via auction

 

Starting at the bid of 3,000 minae, the highest bidder shall be given exclusive insight into the recipe for this cure, to administer throughout their respective domain as they see fit. The auction shall proceed for 24 Saint's Hours following the arrival of these letters, and bids shall be circulated consistently to all who have been outbid to ensure fair competition. 

Please note that this is an open auction, and will not be restricted to the addressees of this letter.

 

Signed,
Lothar II of House Coțofana,
Prince of Comoară, Duke of Freeport in Abeyance


[!] An amendment was soon after submitted to the bidders:


This auction shall be restricted to liquid currency only. No material asset or deed to land will be accepted as a valid bid.


[!] A second amendment was made public by the auctioneers thereafter:

 

In response to concerns that this recipe may be some form of hoax, His Highness has taken the liberty of providing a copy of the recipe to those interested in purchasing in, so as to showcase the potential of their transaction:

Saltwater (Base)
Aether - Purity x3
Aether - Clarity x4
Blood (of the vampire's initial descendant race) x1 count

 

PLEASE NOTE this is simply a copy of the recipe, and not the original recipe itself which is of intrinsically far higher value. Copying this recipe does not equate ownership of it, and will be punished as theft in the microstate of Comoară. True ownership of the recipe will be accredited in a catalogue of alchemists kept by the Prince himself, known as the 'Brew Chain'.

The Kongzem of Haense bids 3,001 mina. It doesn't put the bid in so fast as to draw attention or make people wonder where they're trying to buy it first.

Candle who hates vampires  bids 3002 mina to cure the world of vampires

 

 

The Kongzem respects a good bluff, but it's here to talk business. It bids 3,100.

Does that count as a bet? The Kongzem inquires. It proceeds to offer two bolts and two golden blades if affirmative.

Marchosias, the Nephilim, peered upon the missive. He soon looked to the banker within Du Loc, before bidding a total of 10,000 Minas on it.

Aether Mill'Nara bids: 12,000 Mina. Surely, it will pay off in the resale market.

Candle raises a card glued to a popsicle stick with the number 12.500 on it in a deserted town square, trusting the auctioneer to be able to sense his bid.

Aether's Du-Locian brainwave scanners instantly retaliate by sending a bid of 13,000 through the metaverse.

"Wh-Why are you spending Minas on a parchment?"

 

The man uttered as he peered towards Marchosias. The Nephilim soon turned the man, before stating such.

 

"It's a Non-Fungible Recipe. It contains the rights to the single tiny recipe in Almaris, I used basic funds to get it, so we can turn it into a profit later! It doesn't do anything, but it'll be worth billions in the future -- to investors, that is."

 

Afterwards, he turned to bid 13,000 minas on the cure!
