Because I'm worried that e-mail is fucking up.

We're in the last day of auctions, so keep your eyes on the bids ... remember that anything posted after 12:00 tonight (EST) won't be counted.

Current standings are ...

Psyche Auction:

Edited and Updated! Twice!
Matt - 26
Kirsten - 25
Liz - 20
Allison - 12

Kirsten! You don't want to lose by one ... Psyche is important for so many things in Amber, whether you're using a power, or someone is using one against you! All that time in a bottle, what might you have been doing? Training your psyche!

Psyche's clearly the most important attribute, but somehow is on the low end of bids! If the massive strength and warfare bidders come after you, how are you going to defend yourself? Dominate them psychically!

Strength Auction:

Sean - 30
Pete - 20
Allison - 6

Pete, don't let Sean win! With his warfare so close to yours, he can easily take a hit to move to grappling ... then there'd be trouble. Allison, you're being left behind! This is the 2nd auction that you're stuck at the bottom of.

The rest of you are just going to end up with your faces pummelled. Psyche, Warfare and Endurance are all well and good, but sooner or later an Amberite will be able to get their hands on you, and you don't want to be second best in strength ... easily the most important attribute.


Edited and Updated! Twice!
Kirsten - 20
Liz - 16
Pete - 15
Allison - 12

A close race! Don't be second best here! Endurance is SO important, in everything you do. An advantage in Endurance can make up a slight disadvantage in anything else, plus it's a huge advantage overall ... you can't use powers all day, then expect to win in a fight with a low Endurance.

The race is so close ... can you afford to be 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) in Endurance, when 1st place is less than 5 points away?


Pete - 25
Sean - 15
Allison - 10
Matt - 1

Allison! Another auction you're near the bottom of ... that makes four! That's no advantage to you, at all ... everybody else knows where you rank -- and they're better than you!

Sean ... you can't let Pete have that kind of advantage over you in Warfare. You'll never get your hands on him to make it a Strength contest! Get ahead of him before it's too late!

25 is a pitiful amount for Warfare anyways ... I've never seen Warfare or Psyche go for such small amounts ... pathetic little bids.

Warfare is easily the most important attribute. Amber is about strategy and conniving. People are looking to put a knife in your back at all times. What's going to save you? Warfare, of course.

You're all flirting with disaster, with such low warfares.

Go bid! Now!

Edit: Some more bidding has occurred, but they're all small bids! You're not out of it! Bid high! Dare your fellow players to try to top you, don't make it easy for them to do so! Kirsten and Allison -- you're falling further behind!

Edit #2: More bidding! Kirsten still trails Psyche by only one!!! You don't want that, Kirsten. He's taunting you ... make him pay. Most of you will still be beaten up by Pete, Sean and even Allison. OK, I suppose you can run away from Sean, he tires easily.
