    So I'm trying to "dress-up" my new Keep (that I'm not that excited about, but that's another story)...

    I place my "Rubble" map on the wall and watch it "disappear" as soon as I turn Transparancy OFF...

    What the heck???

    :wall:

    U have placed the painting on the other side of the wall next to the soul forge it happens sometimes when u place things with transparancy on

    have transparancy off when u place it then it should not go true wall like that u might not be able to get it back from thats side
    If so re deed the soul forge and pick it up form the other side

    Yeppers! The item is on the other side of the wall.

    These 2 spaced wall decorations can do that to you. You’ll have to use the old leather pouch and an axe to place it properly. It happens all the time. Nothing to panic about. If you can't retrieve it... you may have to ask a GM for help. I would try standing inside, unlocking it, and trying to pick it up yourself first.

    On the other side of the wall... now just how silly is that....

    So what's the "old leather pouch and axe" trick?
    :eek:

    Never done it with a leather pouch, but I'm guessing they're referring to a method of placement where you put the object you want to place in a box or pouch, drop it on the floor tile , then whack the container with an axe. The item pops out, you can then use the decorator tool to raise or lower as needed. Don't forget to lock it down :)

    This works for placing items in any difficult to place spot. I used it to place items under arches. I just didn't know you could axe a pouch, so I always used boxes.

    Now for the old timers, who remembers the old death robe trick/newbie gold coin trick? Ahh those were the fun days ;P

    Very simple... they are sold on any NPC provisioner. Get a few of those an an axe or hatchet. This can also be done with a wooden box or crate, but whatever works best for you. Put the item in the pouch... drop the pouch where you wish the item... hit the pouch with the axe. Item pops up where you want it, or near to it... and you have to try again.

    Clever decorating really has to use a lot of try and try again... plus a few odd tricks now and then. Nothing that cheats or breaks any rules, it's a matter of just figuring it out.

    We used to be able to do this with packies... but a staff change of the rules "fixed" that. The first fix was a good fix... so only friended or better people to the house could do the drop, but then included the friends and owners, breaking a very cool little decorating trick.
