    I spent the five days before Christmas Cross-shard trading gifts, managed to get six sets of everything including one fancy box.

    Today I went for a walk with my loaded beetle to East Brit bank and bumped into Crimson dragon wandering about on his own. With seconds he had killed me and my beetle, and with no hope of getting close to our corpses before the decayed I had to say goodbye to all those presents!

    Happy New Year everyone!

    An unfortunate loss, but you should of gone to a safe town with all these invasions going on.

    I thought it was safe, no-one had funny names or anything. I just turned a corner and there was the Crimson!

    You could have honored yourself and make a quick corpse run?

    The stuff was on the beetle corpse and would have been too mucj for me to carry.

    Also although I've been playing for 10 years I've never got into the hang of all this new stuff like 'honouring'.

    Six hours later and the Crimson is still hanging around East Brit.

    I also saw that happen sometimes - this is my theory:

    - The invasion was beaten back on Trammel causing the crimson dragon to spawn, but nobody bothered to kill it
    - In the meantime, the Britain sigil was purified on Felucca, causing the invasion to end and the NPCs to revert to normal. However, this didn't cause the crimson dragon to de-spawn, so it remained there in the liberated city...

    Anyway I'm sorry to hear about that!
