    OOC: Well offer is for "Palau", not for "Palau island" so I was assuming I was betting for whole thing.

    OOC : I will be assuming that Spanish holdings on Palau comprise the entire archipelago, noting how the update said something along the lines of "a lot of islands in the Pacific were colonized by Spain". Guam is a single island, and 2 isn't exactly a lot. And yes, the entire archipelago is for sale, although, if countries want to make a joint offer, with the objective of splitting the archipelago, or even the islands themselves, between the involved parties, I shall allow it without any problems.

    (Multi-national base on Guam anyone? Join the 12-nation consortium and get your small bit of colonial empire, at low cost!)


    Offers for Guam

    Denmark : 250 gold
    Colombia : 90 gold

    Offers for Palau
    Ottoman Empire : 55 gold
    Belgium : 50 gold

    Offers for both Guam and Palau
    UK : 120 gold

    Adding up the offers from Guam and Palau, UK has been outbid. Probably wise from Doom, seeing how he has a Communist rebellion to handle... (by the way, long time since we got a mini-update on that conflict...)

    OOC: Look guys, I'm getting these islands. Either by outbidding you, or by other means in the case of powers I dislike.

    OOC: Should have instituted a minimum raise amount. In fact, taking effect from now on, you can only outbid other nations by adding 5 gold in case of each of the islands, or 10 gold, for the islands combined, or 10% of the current bid, whichever is highest.

    Current bids:

    Offers for Guam

    Denmark : 250 gold
    UK : 91 gold
    Colombia : 90 gold

    Offers for Palau
    UK : 56 gold
    Ottoman Empire : 55 gold
    Belgium : 50 gold

    Offers for both Guam and Palau
    UK : 147 gold (adding both offers makes it 147 and not 146 as Doom wrote)

    So, to outbid Denmark on Guam you must bid an additional 10% of 250 which makes 275, and to outbid UK on Palau, you must bid 10% of 56, which is, rounded up, 62 gold.

    By the way, we are also willing to negotiate in other commodities than cash, although we still favor cash.

    I'm closing the auction in around two hours, so I can get the deal done before the update.

    @ GM : Can this be handled by a trade order?

    Treaty Order.

    Also, Paper Currency is being removed due to a conflict with the new Resource System. Everything will be converted to Gold. You may all let out a sigh of relief as currency becomes simpler once again. All Paper Currency in existence right now will be converted to Gold.
