3.14 ADVERTISEMENTS

There comes a time in any adventurer's life when that dusty old sword isn't
really needed anymore and the gold it's worth could better be spent on other
things...

Advertisments can be used to list what you have for sale or what you are
looking to purchase. They are visible to everyone and exist only to facilitate
communication about a particular product or item, they are not involved with
the actual purchase of the item (that's left up to the merchant in you!)

The commands to use the Ad system are as follows:

   ADS [BY <person>] [FOR <pattern>]

      Lists the ads you can see. Be warned though, there may be many. Try
      limiting your search by using the BY and/or the FOR clause. These help
      by only displaying ads posted by an individual, eg.: ADS BY AEYR
      or that match a certain pattern, eg: ADS FOR *sword*

   AD <id>

      Display more information about a particular ad, including the Poster,
      the price, and the description of what is for sale/desired.

   AD <id> BRIEF <text>

      Change the brief description of the ad.

   AD <id> DESCRIBE <text>

      Change the description of the item that is for sale/desired. Anything
      you want potential purchasers to know should go here.

   AD <id> PRICE <price>

      Set the price of the item you are selling or how much you are willing
      to spend on a purchase.

   AD <id> DELETE

      Remove one of your ads.

   AD NEW <name>

      Create a new ad with the specified name. Be warned, old ads will be
      automatically deleted after a while. You may only have 10 ads at any
      given time, so choose wisely. (You can always delete some if you
      absolutely NEED to sell that ratty old Rajamala blanket.) It costs
      100 gold to create a new ad.
