What's all this about then?

This thread is the bidding thread for the Storygame of the same name (Good vs Evil vs Money) that can be found in the FANTASY section. I started it because I am very poor and need more Fables to buy food for the starving children that Key turns out onto the streets. Ahem.

If you don't know about FABLES then I suggest you read the money thread at the top of this forum.

Here you can bid to be a character (or a thing even) in the game, or you can bid for SOMEONE ELSE to be a character or thing in the game.

If someone else bids to be someone/thing, you can bid higher to change his/her specification.

Private bids (a PM to me) will be considered, but I would prefer them to be in this thread.

Finally, any bids on anything else (plot twists etc) will also be considered. I reserve the right to refuse ideas or change anything I like without notice. ;)

Any characters that win a bid will be inserted (sometimes painfully) into the story at the earliest opportunity. However, on occasion this may take a little while if a suitable plot entrance point doesn't become available.

Thank you for listening. :D

I just realised that every post earns 10 fables, so by bidding you actually make a profit (upt to 10 anyway).

3 Fables to Duke Reg sat in the front there. Any advance on 3 fables? Do I hear 5 fables?

I'll give you a hundred Fables if you make me the tasteful comic relief or lovable-oaf sidekick! (But only if you promise to do it properly.) :P :P

Edit: Oh, and anyone with that amount of money to waste has to be a Duke in the story as well. Please? Perty pleeze?

That strikes me as a good deal!

I don't think I can stoop to 'tasteful', but I can do lovable Oaf alright! And a Duke to boot.

Sidekick character:
Sold to m'lord Duke sat in the big chair at the front! Congratulations m'lord Duke. Character will be delivered upon payment! :)

Still available:
Evil, evil villain (this gotta be big bucks!)
Hero (currently under the hammer)
Other suggestions entertained.

Fear not Duke, I have a small piece of paper here with a scribbled note that I have put... er where did I put that thing?

Now then. I see no reason why I can't open bids for the villain now.

Do I hear an opening bid for the Villain character?


For the Hero character...

The bidding stands at 15F to EvilHomer. Going once....

Mr.Smee has bid 40Fables for the Hero! (Though as the richest person in IF, perhaps we should call him Smee Gates ;) )

40F has been bid. Do I hear 50? 50 50 50 50 50 50Fables?doIhear50Fablesforthehero?50Fables going once...

Still only 1Fables bid for the villain? Do I hear 5Fables for this monsterous creature?

If Phang wins with 1 Fable, I'll give you another 10 to make him a real miserly skinflint throughout the story. :D
