    Anyone know what this item was meant to do? It dropped on the corpses of the red City Rioters and cannot be picked up. Would be interesting to find out though :p

    Edit: They drop from City Rioters not the Raiders.

    Perhaps they were contemplating suicide?

    I think the next question is: Can it be stolen?

    Do you mean gray? It is probably a bug.

    If you can't pick them up, they don't 'drop' at all? They're just a strange graphic in the coffin?

    I'm half way to a full suspension bridge in my home, so they are lootable. :)

    Then I misunderstood the OP, I thought they could not be picked up.

    I've seen no such item dropping on the raiders, but then I haven't really killed many. I have been collecting the books they drop though (and i did test, yes you can scribe copies of them). I can't say for sure where the story arc is going, but i did notice something curious in one of the books the raiders dropped that caught my interest. It mentions rites for summoning wisps, similar to old texts that were found back when the lost lands were opened up, between that and town riots (chaos), termur providing a new source of blackrock, the recent surge of new, more powerful monsters in a very important location (dungeon shame), and all the other recent events could spell the return of some old "friends" ?

    Perhaps I'm reading too far into it, and have far too much hope the current dev team would actually pull on UO history for once, but I find it hard to beleive that all these events arent tied together in some fashon, perhaps the FOA have once again returned?

    Yes they are not lootable, not on my shard at least. I would like to know how to pick them up too though. They seem to be static in the corpses, u can highlight them but cannot pick them up, they don't have any weight either.

    And yes Nimuaq, they're from the Red City Rioters, they just spawned today on my shard, it used to be Red Raiders but now there're new guys added called the City Rioters, they have the corrupted life leech ability thingy. Not all of them drop the suspension bridge.

    Btw, any pics of ur collection Drive? :)

    sounds like a number got transposed and it's pulling the wrong art. only partially explains no pick up, similar to a no-draw tile. I'd even bet in the new casino that it would make home designers elated to have a set

    Perhaps, but it seems sort of silly to have to build your own bridge to jump off of - especially since there are bridges around already for that purpose.

    Just sayin......
    :eek:
