The auction super-power eBay has updated its rules. As a result the selling of advice, spells, curses, hexing, conjuring, magic, prayers and the similar are no longer allowed.
The move is likely aimed at the very real practise of selling good luck or sex and love charms on the site as well as curses. This blogger once even wrote about someone offering to summon and command a succubi in an auction on the site.
That said; some types of LARPers may have to be careful with their choice of words in auctions if they wish to avoid automatic but incorrect suspended auctions. They need to avoid the sort of terminology that might make the auction look like it breaks the rules.
For example, Health Energy Potions, not really “potions” – just gimmicks from games – sometimes pop up. This example from Think Geek illustrates what I mean.
Another classic eBay item that gamer geeks do trade which might now be impacted are LARP spellbooks.
