Vahyla's Occasional Ramblings This'll be something that I probably only update rarely and it'll be about random things. o_o

Finally, a Quest! (Aww... done.)
I know, it's a bit weird... but I've always wanted to quest on Gaia. Everyone else does it, and it seems like fun.

However, I wasn't sure what to quest for. I mean, I have or can get relatively easily almost anything I could desire on Gaia.

Except... now I'm intriqued by something I saw in Kali's wishlist:
URL was here, but I just found out the admins requested the URL not be spread around sweatdrop

And I'm wondering to myself... is this item real? My interest was further intriqued when someone mentioned in the "Gaia Gaming" forum someone "wearing a cat band, but it wasn't normal, it was made out of that goldenrod paper."

Thusly, I am questing for...
Crumpled Xerox Paper Goldenrod

Because you can not easily get this item by just gaining up gold or trading for items, it will actually take me awhile, like a quest should. It is further complicated by the fact that this paper is only available at dawn/dusk.

To further limit myself, I will not allow myself to buy paper at higher than these prices:
3 gold per piece on bunches lower than 100 pieces.
3.5 gold per piece on bunches over 100 pieces.

Does the "Goldenrod Paper Cat Band" really exist? I intend to find out! heart
14 pieces bought for 28g
51 pieces bought for 100g
10 pieces bought for 12g
10 pieces bought for 20g
23 pieces bought for 50g (donation from Lin Maru heart )
10 pieces bought for 25g
50 pieces bought for 100g
13 pieces bought for 30g (donation from Lurking Turnip heart )
3 pieces bought for 5g
18 pieces bought for 40g
156 pieces bought for 425g (Ohyes! Djinncat's store)
100 pieces bought for 200g (bid was accepted!)
8 pieces bought for 8g (donation from Guan Hittori surprised heart )
77 pieces bought for 77g (another Guan Hittori donation ^^)
Total: 1066 (bid on 90/180)

As long as I'm going around, I might as well see if I can get patchwork boots out of it. I've always thought they were pretty neat, anyway... 95/1000

December 3rd: The end...
Obviously, I got a lot more than I needed. But I LOVELOVE the new Exchange system for stuff. heart If anyone is really, really wanting a paper cat band, now would be the time to ask. Or other Goldenrod paper stuff, of course. I only made this one. *points at head* heart

Good luck with that quest. I have also seen these demon eyes but I have no idea what that is either

Hey, I have a piece if you want it. But I don't know how I could get it to you, the paper doesn't trade through the bank yet.
So any ideas? confused

For things like paper, fish, garbage, flowers, bugs (you get the idea) trading has to happen through the Vend system.

Person A puts the item up, person B bids/buys the item, then person A (if it's a donation) sends a trade with the amount of gold paid and... there you go.

That's why so far I've told everyone to just put things up for a little less than a fair price and I'll count it as a donation. 3nodding

Ah ok. Well, I'll put it up for sale in my shop. I'm going to try getting more than the one piece for ya though. 3nodding
If I don't with in the next day or so, I'll just put the one so you can have it.

EDIT: Hey before you spend any more money, check out this thread. Apparently those were cheat-code items that will be released at a later time. If you still want whatever goldenrod paper I can find, no worries, will put it in the shop for you in a jiff. But just thought I should let you know about what I found out first. confused

Your quest is quite interesting. I too have seen many seemingly nonexistant items on wishlists and oggled in wonder. Good luck on your search for the truth.

I was actually aware of that... but I guess I'd also like to be one of the first to have one, just because. whee So, yes, I will still be after the paper.

Okidoke. Check the shop, I have the piece there form 1g. ^^

Edit: sad I just put it in there for 12 days for you and somebody bought it before the screen even finished refreshing!!
I'll try to get you some more ok? I'm sorry, I really didn't realize people would Want it besides you. I'll wait until I can see you're actually on next time. neutral

Ehheh... yeah, other people are actually after it too.

Also, there are people who make their money just by buying things for cheap and selling it for higher. Goldenrod paper at the minimum is usually 3gold a piece. They can easily sell pieces they buy at one for profit. *shruggles* 'Tis how the Vend works.
