Exotic Pet Auctions

TW: Racism, Slavery
  If one were to describe an auction, they would state it is a publicly held sale at which property or goods are sold to the highest bidder. For the Exotic Pet Auctions, these "goods" or "property" are Exotic Pets, or slaves. Exotic Pets came into being on Kruqesk 9th of 1852 EoL. The purpose of these auctions is to raise money for the war against the Moonlight Expanse. Most times, they wish to raise at least 100,000 Wolf Slayer coins. To get into an auction, you must either be of noble blood or a member of the royal family. An exception to this rule is if someone works as a guard, servant, or rangler.

The Exotic Pet Auctions are usually held within an auction house, the most notable one being in Zarahk'n. Each auction house is located within a large city, where many nobles come to either buy a new Exotic Pet or sell their old one.

Auction Best Practices
All auctions must treat the products with care, as any product damaged after purchase can be refunded. Purchases much be chosen wisely, such as saving the best for last. At the beginning of the event, it is best to emphasize the cause (most auctions are a charity for the war to help fund the Itudean Army). And more importantly - serve dinner during it; no noble vampire wants an empty stomach when deciding the best product on stage.
