    I figured I was the only one this happened to. Our player run City of PaxOku on the Chesapeake shard has a community garden. We grow the plants and sell them on vendors to raise city funds.

    Well our rare plant vendor selling the fire,aqua,pink and Purple vendor was standing just fine.

    Had 250-300k on it.
    The house owner owned the vendor (So not rented)

    Came back two minutes later with more plants to go on it and the vendor was gone.

    Checked the floor area.
    Checked the Moving box for a vendor.
    Checked the Moving Box for a Bag.
    Checked the house maybe for some odd reason it moved.

    Nothing just poof gone. And im pritty sure we werent dupeing Fire Seeds (LoL)

    So I paged Gm cannot help blah blah. Figured wed suck it up but then in Luna one of our finest crafters on the shard (Kristen)Three of her vendors just went poof. *Kal Ort Por* Poof gone. Gone baby gone.

    Now I am not sure if the Dev team made it so that vendors would recall an steal your gold and you have to find clues and hunt them down but that is odd.

    Her vendors stocked as follows.

    1. Full runebooks
    2. Crafted Containers
    3. Ingot resources.

    The vendors have been in Luna I think right around when AOS launched. Im sure our rare plant vendor and her crafter vendors werent selled Vine Cord Sandels or Two story white statues.

    So my question is. Has this happened to anyone else? Within two day four vendors on the Chesapeake shard just vanish.

    This does not bode well, at all.

    I shop at both QueenZen's and Kristen's shops. Sorry to hear about this and I hope it is resolved soon!

    hmm... I just went to unload my vendor's cash... just in case.

    Not sure what happened here, but it would be nice to have someone give us a warm-fuzzy feeling.

    <font color="purple"> just to be sure all bases were covered, did you do ctrl+shift and make sure that the vendors hadn't somehow shifted and standing on top of each other?

    graspin' at straws, aren't I? </font>

    well, a few month ago I had a vendor on Europa. He was rented and the house owner did not play actively since a longer time, so the contract was not canceled.
    One day I decided, it is time to restock.
    I started to stock, and suddenly the vendor disappeared under my hands.
    Luckily enough he landed in the house sign, so gold and inventory have not been lost.
    The vendor was free or low money, and the owning char had a few millions still in his bank box, so the rental fee could not have been the problem also.
    Not sure, what caused this.
    *Salute*
