        Auction sethigh <level>

This command is used to put a new item up for sale via Auction Inc(tm). The minimum starting bid is 100 coins or an optional minimum bid amount put after the item, whichever is higher.

Everyone who has the auction channel on (toggled with 'auction' by itself) will be notified of new items for auction within a given range (see below). Any player may type 'bid' at any time to see all items currently up for auction. Though players do not talk on the auction channel (use the barter channel), you may use 'auction -h <lines>' to see a history of bids and items on the channel. See 'help channel' for mroe information on channel history.

You may change the range of items seen on auction announcements. Use 'auction set <number>' to see objects up to <number> levels below your level. This does not need to be re-set each level. If you have the keepall wish, you may also use 'auction sethigh <number>' to see objects up to <number> levels above your current level. Level 0 and 1 objects are often special objects, and will always be seen, regardless of your auction settings.

Please note that Auction Inc is not a charity; they charge a 10% fee on all items sold on this channel. Tiers receive a discount on this fee; see 'help tier'. Tax may also be taken by your clan, based on your clan's tax settings; see 'help tax'.
