Thread: LOST: A well-balanced sturdy vultite lance

  1. #1

    Default LOST: A well-balanced sturdy vultite lance

    7x perfect lance - T5 ensorcelled. Originally crafted by Realia (sp?) I think and enchanted by Anemit.

    Lost this while helping a friend do an heirloom search in the tunnel in the bowels. I'm not even sure how it happened...I looked back at the log and all I see is that I dropped the lance. I don't see that I typed DROP or PUT, but I dropped it somehow. I dropped it right before I hit go2, so I didn't even see that I'd dropped it till after I was done resting.

    Aeronal just arrived.

    You grab Anemit and drag him southwest with you...

    Rivulets of brown murky water trickle down the slighty sloping floor, cutting tiny ruts into the soft muddy ground. The ceiling is covered with sickly grey mushrooms, all of them distorted and misshapen.

    do you use stormfront? its entirely possible to tap the window and drop things with it
    Khaladon starts to turn the crystal knob, but stops with a frightened look on his face. He begins shaking uncontrollably and flies across the room, as though by some invisible force.

    **SPLAT!!** Khaladon careens off the far wall, slides down the smooth wood panelling and collapses into a quivering heap on the floor, with only his dignity bruised.

    Yeah, the GH mentioned that, but I haven't found any way to do it without clicking on the little menu that comes up when you click an item. And when I drop an item that way using SF, it appears in the log.

    vaguely remember that it can happen though it happened to me ages ago, seen some very odd bugs though.

    It's the drag and drop interface.

    If you drag an item to a container, it'll move it there. If you drag an item to anywhere else in the SF window, it'll just... drop it on the ground. No confirmation, no nothing. So if you accidentally drag an item's name a short distance, you'll drag it onto empty space and drop it.

    If you mention that this is absolutely insane and user-hostile behavior on the officials, you will be told that it is easily fixed by simply turning off all menus and highlighted XML.

    Yeah, that sucks... I made a highlight to make a sound whenever I drop something, for that very reason.

    Ahh yes, I see that now. If I drop an item dragging it into the story window, it doesn't show the command in the log. I guess that's the most logical explanation, though I don't know how I'd have done it...pretty sure I didn't have my hand on the mouse at all, but who knows.

    The GH said it wasn't picked up by the janitor, but I still haven't tracked it down. I guess there are fancier items I could have lost, but losing this one really sucks cause I did all the enchanting and ensorcelling myself and it took forever.

    No it's a nice weapon to lose over some bullshit UI. If the person who has it doesn't return it well, may their mouth be filled with monkey feces in hell for eternity.

    There are so many ways to drop a weapon and I'm sorry you lost yours. I wish it wasn't so easy to lose anything let alone something you've spent that much time on. For example:

    >get sceptre
    You pick up a twisted bronze sceptre.
    >put sceptre
    You drop a twisted bronze sceptre.
    >

    If you accidentally forget to specify your backpack, there goes the item.

    I once had a hound over in RR manuever attack and steal my 10x T5 shield from my hand without me realizing. It's impossible to notice something like that with mstrikes, flares, and spells going off all over the place. I'm not even sure Tgo's script would've noticed it. Anyway, a GM was able to tell me that it was still in the area and a player hadn't picked it up. It was bizarre because I had literally walked the entire area and failed to notice my shield on the ground. Maybe ten minutes later a mob showed up carrying said shield.

    Anyway, I don't know if that's the case with your weapon or not. Hope you find it either way.
    The only rude person I met was a taxi driver in kagoshima. I was going from the train station to the ferry to take it over to an island and was showing him my papers and he was like "oh, climb mountain?" and I'm like "hai, yep!" and he made a muscle pose(bent arm, whatever you call it) laughed, and rubbed my belly.. like "oh, no, you fat american fuck, you no get up there", but whatever - Japhrimel
