Classified Ad

Post by munsi » Tue Jan 19, 2010 11:04 am

For sale:

One soul, human, male. Thirty one years old, only one owner, gently used. Mildly tarnished by sin but still redeemable with restoration.

Previous owner does his best not to lie, cheat or steal, works hard, and tries to be generally decent to his fellow man. He keeps meaning to do charity work, but never quite gets around to it.

I enjoy this item greatly but due to my hectic modern lifestyle I find it impractical to maintain, as I am unable to find the time necessary to use it properly.

Unlimited arcane power, or best offer. Delivery included.

Interesting. Love the concept. The change in perspective from third-person 'he' to first-person 'I' was a bit off-putting though.
