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 ISHAP
      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> 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 <id> RENEW

      Renew the date on one of your Ads, making it last for another 7
      real-life days from the current date. Ads cost 1 silver to renew.

   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 Glamredhel blanket.) It costs
      1 silver to create a new ad.
