The setting is an action taking place on some planet, far, far away, and the auctioneer is in the middle of a sale.

"Two Kali, two Kali, two Kali.

Do I hear three? Do I hear three?

Three! --- Three Kali, three Kali, three Kali.

Do I hear four? --- Four Kali, four Kali! Thank You! Four Kali it is!

Do I have five? --- Four Kali, four Kali, four Kali!

Do I hear five? --- Five Kali is bid by the Gruel in the blue robe. Thank You!

Are there any other bids? Five Kali going once. Any other bids? Five Kali going twice. Come on, a Reingu in this condition is worth a lot more!

Is there any other bids? Five Kali going, going, going, sold!

Please pay the Kali-Tallier at the settlement booth. All sales are final, and thank you again!


Druels and Gruel, may I have your undivided attention?

Looking to the platform on my left, we have a fine example of a human female. She is of a young adult age and she is being sold on consignment.

She speaks two languages, is well mannered, and eats small meals; (Disclaimer: Addition meals may affect performance.).

Her skin tone is best suited for warmer climates, but she does require clothing to alleviate burning and unsightly lines on her surfaces.

Are their any questions before the bidding starts?

Yes, the Druel in the third row wearing the Red robe. By the way, love your head attire!"

"Oh, why thank you ever so much," replied the Druel in Red. Then she continued, "My question is, can this female be used for breeding?" 

"Good question, --- a very good question," the auctioneer replied.

"Absolutely not! Breeding of humans is forbidden by the high counsel!

Eons ago the Counsel allowed human breeding on the Planet Earth, and we all know what happened there."
