    • Minor Prizes(4): Personal Event Teaser for 1 Event of Your Choosing
  20. IG Snippet of Info

  21. Double Event/Cleanup/PEL CP
    • Grand Prize(2): Double Event/Cleanup/PEL CP for your First Year

  22. Raise CP Cap by 10 CP (equivalent to 2 CP in most Accelerant games)
  23. Bonus 15 CP (equivalent to 3 CP in most Accelerant Games)
  24. Pick a Fairy Tale or other Story to Become an open-to-all Tales Plot Line (2)
    This will not be a personal plot line, but one that is open to all players. This auction just gives you the opportunity to name a story you'd like to see in Tales and like to see how our Staff takes inspiration from it and changes it around. Once picked, the Tales staff will twist it in the way we do and make it a part of Tales, so we cannot promise it will be exactly like the story you selected (but will be enough that you will recognize it). If you choose something we were already doing as a plotline, we will let you choose a different story. This is intended for Players or NPCs of Tales, but is open to all.
  25. NPCs of Tales: Create an NPC to play in Tales (1)
    Have an idea for an NPC you've always wanted to play? This will allow you to propose an NPC to Plot Staff, and we will work with you to create the NPC for the game, to act either as a "townie," a module hook for a planned plotline, or to create a minor plotline around. The idea still must work within the context of the campaign, but this will be an NPC of your choosing.
  26. NPCs of Tales: Create a Module (1)
    Always had an idea for a module, but never had the time to be a fully devoted Plot Staff Writer? Want to give it a try? Win this raffle, and Tales Plot staff will work with you to allow you to write a module in Tales. The module must still be approved and conform to our game world, but we'll work with you to give you the chance to try running a LARP mod.

FOR SALE: Influence Tokens! - This is not an auction item, but rather a sale item. We will be offering Influence Tokens for the Merchant Board for sale during the Adventure Day ($5 per token). You can put these influence tokens on different aspects of the Written World and on various "themes" of tales to influence the direction that Tales will go. Every influence token placed will be taken into consideration.
