Sticky Post: Story Post: PuP Salesman

I hereby offer to produce any wanted PuPs with associated states and sell them at a negotiated rate. Please leave offers in the comments. This is basically an insurance service where you get a certain set of stats and I take the risk for you.

pokes, would it be inappropriate to make this a sticky post?

Not at all inappropriate. Go for it.

pokes, done. Thanks!

Am I missing something?  PuPs can’t be auctioned, and the only other way to sell players is to trade them for an existing one.  With the players we have now, why would anyone trade theirs for a PuP?

YES

I fucking KNEW adding trade to the game would make shit super interesting with arrangements like this.

Fucking

Kudos.

I can’t wait to see what other stuff comes up.

oracular rufio, they can be bought for cash though, “As an action (without limitation of time), a manager may offer any other manager a sum of money for another player. If the other manager accepts, the player is moved to the team of the first manager and the sum of money is paid by the first manager to the second manager.”

Cuddlebeam, I have been planing this.

so what would you charge for a level 18? other stats are not an objective.

Publius Scribonius Scholasticus:

It would be negotiable, but probably about $750,000-$1,000,000. Given the chances, this would also probably come with a stat boost for another stat as well. I might be willing to bring it down though as an introductory offer, derrick.

Yeah, I don’t have that kind of cash. Though I suppose we can calculate the maximum cost for a player based on the training equations. I don’t think anyone has paid anywhere near that amount for any of their players yet.

I need some players so I would pay 500k for a blogger with level >=16 and at least a single stat >=8.

Publius Scribonius Scholasticus:

04-25-2017 17:21:32 UTC

If you buy two, I will do it for a collective $1,000,000.

Crumb:

04-25-2017 17:29:21 UTC

It’s a deal!

Publius Scribonius Scholasticus:

Do I have to reroll the D100 every time? pokes, crumb?

derrick:

04-25-2017 20:15:35 UTC

I’d guess that you should.

Publius Scribonius Scholasticus:

04-25-2017 20:17:41 UTC

derrick, I am going to try not, but we can litigate it and I am happy to redo if that is the decision, it is mostly just for time and I got a good deal.

derrick:

04-25-2017 20:21:10 UTC

Litigation pending. Its not just for time: its a major part of balancing the mechanism.

Publius Scribonius Scholasticus:

04-25-2017 20:29:31 UTC

derrick, I don’t care the outcome of the litigation, I will be happy to comply with the outcome. However, given that the DICE100 is not part of the Atomic Action, I believe it may be rolled independently and reused. While it may look like I designed this in my favor, I did not realise this in drafting the rule and I have only realised it this afternoon.

crumb, sale processed, you now have your two PuPs.

Cuddlebeam:

How much for borrowing 3 PuPs (any, I dont mind the stats) for a day?

Publius Scribonius Scholasticus:

04-27-2017 00:56:07 UTC

Borrowing them for what purpose?

Crumb:

04-27-2017 16:19:06 UTC

You can effectively “borrow” as many PuPs as you want for 10k each.

derrick:

04-27-2017 21:26:32 UTC

He’s trying to earn money in a quick game and then give the players back (minus the charge) so he can keep a starting cash of 0.

Cuddlebeam:

04-29-2017 16:55:21 UTC

...I don’t need to borrow 3 PuPs anymore.
