    How long would an Ent-led auction take?

    “You must understand, young Hobbit, it takes a long time to say anything in Old Entish. And we never say anything unless it is worth taking a long time to say.”
    Ealendil of Doriath, composer and member of Lindamar, Vanimar, Laurelin

    Only until Isengard bids 5!

    Cheers
    “It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end… because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing… this shadow. Even darkness must pass.”

    Long enough for everything to become priceless antiques.

    We may never know, we are still waiting for them to arrive.

    It would last as long as it had to, no more, and no less.

    It depends on the number of bidding ents, but probably a few months. Hoom!

    Figure it would take 3 eleven-lifetimes to set up a date, then 5 more eleven-lifetimes to arrive. Do you really want to know how long it talks to announce the beginning bid?

    Based on the thought processes of Ents, the auction would take as long as it needs to take and no longer, but what's the rush, tiny being?

    At most 48 hours. You know why.

    You put a Ent auctioneer there. Several hours passed, and no one talked to him. Why, because he is so tall... No one sees the auctioneer icon above his head, unless you put a icon on the radar. So, it takes forever.

    “I am not going to tell you what you are bidding on, not yet at any rate.' A queer half-knowing, half-humorous look came with a green flicker into his eyes. 'For one thing it would take a long while: the Auction is growing all the time, and I've lived a very long, long time; so my Auction is like a story. Real Auctions tell you the story of those they belonged to in my language, in the Old Entish as you might say. It is a lovely language, but it takes a very long time saying anything in it, because we do not say anything in it, unless it is worth taking a long time to say, and to listen to.”

    A few centuries probably

    I couldn't be bothered to read 3 pages of comments either. Reminds me of a Black Adder quote

    "Who will rid me of this turbulent...."

    He probably meant Speaker.

    Later "Two drunken knights back from the crusades, looking to kill..."

    "A little time"

    If Ents actually decide to do an auction, it'd probably take centuries just for a single item.

    "Auction"? Sounds like orc mischief to me! Búrárúm...
    They come with money, they come with wares.
    Profiteering, exploiting, cutthroating, sueing.
