Just out of curiosity, if $50 gets you a "bad" double 21 and $200 gets you the "Holy Grail", what's something like this going to be? The potential is to have 5 double 21s with a couple or more being trip 21s. Oh and it's DYO.

Heheh that is a tough question. I would wager it depends on teh buyer. I would be interested in buying, but at the bidding war I suspect you could see this over 1000.00 easily. Not sure it is worth that.

There is a big issue with DYO's, you may or may not be bonused. May or May not have knack and they are likely mortal.

I wonder what people think of selling prizes.

No problem here. I've often concluded that if I ever win one that will probably be my course to keep me from investing even more money into the tournament game to "improve" upon my previous performance.

I can see this prize easily going for more than $500.... don't you also get to roll each warrior three times and choose the ones you prefer based on bonuses? To me, that makes this prize exponentially more valuable than "the holy grail" roll-up sheet given the chance for multiple dual/trip dyo 21 warriors on a single roll-up sheet.

I personally would probably sell this if I were to win it, and flip the proceeds to re-invest in building the quality and depth of my pipeline. In the same breath, I'm sure there are many people looking to acquire this if they didn't win one on their own!

The cost will approach, or exceed, four digits.

There are major buyers out there.

I see no issue with it. It's not against the rules, so why would anyone object? In the past I have sold some favorites potions, at $200 ea about 15 years ago.

Selling prizes ... we are not in favor of it and don't do it.

On the other hand, rollups, teams, special help, prizes, etc, etc have been sold and seem to be an acceptable practice to the DM public. There is certainly nothing illegal about it. (Just so you pay your taxes on the income. Wink ) The idea is, after all, quite entrepreneurial.

I let Lee know about the last two spambots and she got rid of them. I have access to lock and delete threads, but not users.
