Auction of principalities #
This unique auction, presented in the Golden Clone game, is truly a special place where players have the opportunity to purchase ready-made principalities with already developed infrastructure, population, settlements and other characteristics. This provides an opportunity for players to immediately immerse themselves in gameplay at a higher level of development and enjoy all the benefits that princely power provides.
Principalities in such an auction can range from an initial level of development to principalities with a more complex and branched structure. This allows players to choose what best suits their gaming goals and strategy. As indicated, participation in this auction requires a certain social status and financial preparation, since this is a serious step in the gaming ecosystem.
Buying a ready-made principality can really save a lot of time for the new owner, since most of the work has already been done by the seller. This also provides the opportunity to create your own “empire” in the game at a faster and more advanced stage than if the player were to start from the very beginning. This auction may be of particular interest to players who have ambitions to build large and complex structures in the game. Also, purchasing a ready-made principality is interesting for those who want to quickly move to a higher level of gaming activity.
Trading Rules #
The buyer of a principality at auction may be a clone of the social status of “bourgeois” or higher. Upon successful purchase, the buyer receives a principality along with a clone, who is the prince of this principality. After acquisition, the buyer has the opportunity to change the name of the principality and the name of the prince according to the general rules of the game.
This mechanism allows players with a certain social status and experience to acquire already developed principalities. At the same time, the possibility of changing the title and name of the prince gives flexibility in adapting the principality to the plans and preferences of the new owner.
The seller of the clone prince puts it up for sale with his other clone prince. These clones must meet the following requirements:
- the social status of the prince-seller who creates the lot must be “baron” or higher;
- the social status of the prince-seller must be equal to or higher than the social status of the prince being sold;
- the prosperity (assessment) of the prince-seller must be equal to or higher than the “prosperity” of the prince being sold;
- the prince being sold must not be an emperor;
- The prince being sold must not own any animals or chicken farms.
The prince-seller, depending on his social status, can put up for sale a different number of lots:
- social status “Baron” - no more than 1 lot at a time;
- social status “count” - no more than 2 lots at a time;
- social status “emperor” - no more than 3 lots at a time;
- social status “Emperor of the Oil Age” - no more than 4 lots at a time.
