Scavenger Hunt

Today I'm actually not here, as I'm somewhere in the wilds of the midwest fending off wild animals and avoiding scary red necks with big guns. Hopefully I'll make it back in one piece!

Anyways, I have a little game that I constructed for you to play as a team. Your mission, should you choose to accept it is to answer the following questions using the information found within the hundreds of posts on the blog.

For some this will prove a real challenge, so I'm asking that you comment with the answers and try to get them all done before I get back from my trip on Tuesday evening. Looking forward to reading how far you got!

Here are the questions, all answers can be found in previous posts or comments:

6. When is the "Black" time period for bidding?

  9. 10. Gevlon: High population servers have many businessmen, covering lot of fields, but not all.
    There are materials that are not produced/buy-and-sold by anyone. Find them and use them. You can also pick a market and try to take it by force. You can win since a richer competitor can easily say "this field does not worth my time to fight, I let that noob have it"
