    Someone just surprised me by coming into my Moonglow shop. I very carefully checked that all 'porters were set 'friends' when I finished customizing before I put gozas over them.

    Fortunately my visitor was friendly. However all teleporters and doors in my house had reverted to 'anyone' access. I know they were right a couple of days ago. I let someone in through the door to talk to me and they couldn't get out through it till I opened it for them.

    hehe, no, it's a fate he avoids if he can, but laughs about when he can't.

    But if my doors and porters all somehow changed (secures all properly set), then other people's may have too. Seemed right to warn people to check. It's not just one that's altered, every teleporter and door in the house had reset.................

    argh! I know how it happened. My fault. I just remembered one of the porters wouldn't work yesterday and I had to change the foundation to fix it. The penny dropped as I was typing.

    I came by your shop this weekend and was suprised that I could enter; in which I did. I loved the shelves you made with the rubble. I just thought you were very brave or very stupid, one or the other--lol.

    I know for a FACT your teleporters were set correctly because I waited at your house for bout 20 mins in hopes that you would come home, and I tried every single teleporter and any other way inside your house. If I can't get in then you best believe your house was secured properly!

    Not sure what I was gonna do had you came home though, just depends on the mood at that moment I guess. :)

    I am glad that you fixed your house problem!

    But, if all houses on Siege Perilous were set that way then would that really
    be the end of the shard? Perhaps it would not be!

    Discuss the possibilities!

    Shelves with rubble? I only have one piece of rubble, Leaf, a block that's between the kitchen armoire and the shelves of resource crates.

    you're welcome to drop by and have a look at what I did with your house plot. Give me a call on icq and I'll make sure I'm at home.

    I know what happens when a shop is set with all the doors open for access. The crafter dies when trying to stock it. I've done that several times when my vendors were at Mo's.

    I know the shard is a place of risk, I take that risk more often than some people know. But dying every time I tried to stock the vendors would get old very, very quickly.

    I had a similar experience a few times after a patch or publish.. can't remember which. The teleporters on 2 of the 4 houses I had at the time, were changed to "Anyone"... kinda freaked me out. I think Queen Zen and one other member had similar problems in some of their houses, but it hasn't happened in a long time.

    Did we have a publish recently or did you find some other reason behind the teleporter change?

    She changed foundation styles. Thus resetting all access.

    yes. There's a bug that affects teleporters sometimes, I don't know what causes it, but it stops you using them. One of mine got bugged. I could use all the others, but bounced off that one.
    The fix is to change the foundation, which I did. But I forgot that all my teleporters and doors reset!

    Yes, thats what I saw. I just noticed the top was different and it said rubble. I thought your place was really cozy. I had noticed that you used items to create shelves and such that I had never thought of before. Since I know now that it is private, I wished I had paid better attention. Thought I would drop back in again when I was ready to decorate. I was just surprised I got teleported in. Had no idea it wasn't suppose to be like that.

    Are you that predictable? You would adapt to the situation!
    You would randomize your vendor stocking time!
    You would know when opponents are online! I do!
    You would employ guards, or other players to watch your back!
    You would not try placing a full load in your backpack or your packy!
    You would use Stealth skill!

    Besides, the Red who enter you house did not attack you. How strange!
    Perhaps the Kill on sight paradim on Siege Perilous is getting old!
    So, curiosity won out for your sake that day.

    The house private and access rules are unnatural barriers to the game.
    True enough the game would be different! The house would serve a different
    purpose instead of a storage container.

    I believe each house should have a storage vault just like the bank vault.
    I believe other containers should have less security...lockpickable!
    I believe doors should be lockable as well as pickable.
    I believe house doors should be damagable and repairable.
    I believe vender should double as guards to the house.

    Of course , none of this will happen... it takes a lot of programming and money
    from EA.

    This game requires the players to use it as is!

    at no point did I say my visitor was red, as it happens, on this occasion, it was a blue character. On the other hand, I don't see a blue character and assume I won't be attacked. Often I am.

    Most games require the player to play as is. You can't change the rules of baseball to suit your individual ideas can you?

    I don't have stealth, I'm a crafter, I craft. I only utilise the fact that one can hide in one's own house.
