This command allows you to put items up for auction and interact with
items in the auction queue. An item is in the auction queue until it goes up
for auction. At this time, it's placed in the first open auction slot. Items
in the queue are referred to by their queue position with 1 being the item
which will be auctioned next. A player may only have one item up for auction
at a time.
Items won at auction are instantly transferred from the seller to the buyer
by friendly auction imps. The imps charge the seller a fee of 1% of the
selling price for this service. The money is taken from the buyer's bank
account (and from the buyer's pocket if the account doesn't cover it) and
transferred to the seller as described in HELP SETAUCTION
The following AUCTION commands are available:
