Log in to see images! is the Forumwarz auction house, launched January 16th 2009, in which players can bid on items from the Forumwarz universe. The mascot of Kyoubai is BidSquid, a cartoon squid with a cowboy hat and a gavel. He'll be the one who tells you when you are outbid or when you win an auction. BidSquid was designed by Dooomcat Studios, who also did the clbum portraits and designed the homepage.
Log in to see images!You can select a repaired, unequipped item from your inventory and put it up for auction.
The name was finally decided after two polls in Flamebate. Its closest competition was the lame pun Affirmative Auction, but it also beat out far superior competition such as Full of Sale. As for word choice, Kyoubai is one of several Japanese translations for the word auction. Though a Japanese pronunciation would be like "kyo buy", it also looks a lot like "Ok, you buy!", and is funnier and more blissfully stereotypical if read that way.
Evil Trout is introducing new and rare items to the game via Kyoubai, to mimic the ever-changing inventory of the The Ppwn Shoppe. Moar files and fragments will appear at Kyoubai, for flezz hoarders too lazy to grind for Pink Floyd and other more complex files. More rare .Moar files like Pink Floyd are planned, so Kyoubai may become a way to acquire these files.
