Fewer people attended the livestock auction than I had hoped. As I had noted,
given the state of the land, my goal was to auction off livestock at generally
reasonable prices. I had expected more people to take advantage of that opportunity
Still, there were a fair number of people present and some good breeding stock
has been introduced to the land.
One particularly heated exchange occurred with chicken and rooster purchasing
After Deadeye purchased a pair of hens and a rooster for a reasonable amount, he
started a bidding war with Xion, continually pushing the price up.
Perhaps he hoped to keep Silverfalls the sole supplier of eggs in the future.
Eventually Xion prevailed, but what a price that was paid. Perhaps we are seeing the
beginnings of a Coop War.
Still, a foundation for the future has been established. Long term, those who
purchased today may find their efforts invested today will save gold and labour
in the future.
