The items will be personalized, that is our first deterrent against people trying to sell them. The idea is that if they are special to you, you will be discouraged from selling them. If you decide to sell them, that would constitute "demerit" points and could result in demotion or expulsion from the guard. Why? First off, we don't want people to do this simply for items to sell, as far as an IC reason your selling an official uniform could be used by the enemy to do bad things...and of course, that's not good! We are doing this to give players something they can feel proud of having accomplished. A lot of times players ask us to take home something that symbolizes their accomplishment during contests, this our attempt at giving you that. As far as all the other "What If..." scenarios that were presented, we will deal with extreme cases (solar flares, tidal waves, locust clouds, alien invasions, apocalypses, account transfers) on a case by case basis. Apologies for any confusion.
