Anyone want to buy half a customized ROTA "Golden Hall" set? 4 Years, 10 Months ago  
I'm really, really tempted to buy another basic ROTA set to repaint, but I can't justify the expense or the space. If, however, I could be reasonably sure that someone would buy half the pieces from me, I'd do it.

Here's my suggestion:

1. I'd order a ROTA set, and when it arrived, I'd divide the set into two piles, as evenly distributed as possible. Every single piece would be repainted in the following scheme: gold floor (with inkwashes in the broken tiles, so it looks appropriate), gold where there is currently white (on the top, the sun face, etc), and white stones in the central wall (which are currently a sandstone color). There would be no original color remaining (except rubble, which would be left alone). A lot of the worn, ruined look would be left out -- I'd inkwash to bring out contrast where tiles are meant to be chipped, but on the whole I'd be aiming for a less ruined look. Basically, a white palace with gold trip and gold tile floors.

2. I'd sell half the pieces -- including one of the two intersection pieces, and all three small corridor pieces -- for exactly half the price. That means five floor pieces, four corner pieces, and five wall pieces, plus the intersection and the three corridors. The set costs $140, plus shipping, so I'd sell the pieces for $70, plus shipping, which I'd estimate at $20.

I don't have a ton of time to spend on this, so while I try to be a nice guy, for simplicity's sake I'm going to have three ground rules.

1. I won't negotiate on the paint scheme. I like what I like, and while I'm sure other people might have great ideas, I don't want to have to keep track of who gets what, and I'd also be afraid that I'd somehow fail to do exactly what was requested, and someone would be disappointed. The way I have it planned, I'm not taking requests, so I'm really looking for someone who thinks this sounds like a neat idea, but isn't too hung up on a particular vision of how they are hoping it comes out. This is really just helping me unload some extra pieces, not taking commissions on customs, which I don't have time for.

2. I'd agree to do this on a first-come, first-served basis. I've done trades and PMs with various forum-dwellers over the years, and I think you're all great guys. But to keep things simple and fair, I'll just agree to do this with whoever gets to me first, so I don't feel guilty about having to turn someone down. (assuming, of course, I get any takers at all....)

3. As a broke, impatient person, I'd have to insist on eBay standard procedure -- buyer pays first. It's not really a question of trust, it's just that if I plan to mail the package ASAP, and I don't have time to keep track of whether I've been paid. I do a lot of stuff on eBay, too, and it complicates things for me to have to remember who owes me money. It's just easier on me to get paid first and then I don't have to worry about it. Again, I can only do this if it's going to be very simple and straightforward, so if nobody agrees to my rules, then it's easier for me just to say nevermind -- you know?

Thanks,
