    I'm sorry. :(

    I need to withdraw this offer. Earlier today I logged out, mounted on my beetle (verified by watching both disappear from the point of view of another account). 5 hours later, right before server down, and while I was at work, someone spawned a harbinger at the fest Somehow, it seems that my *logged out* character was still affected by the harbinger's area effect, dismounting me, and sending my beetle out to get killed by the harbinger.

    The beetle was carrying several pieces of rubble (dress, dock tile, etc), 20 or 30 green holiday tickets, a few black boulder pieces, a rift pillar, some other random items, plus the pouch I transferred to Izumo this morning, which contained...

    3 shield deeds and my shield token stash of approximately 55 shield tokens.

    Therefore I need to cancel this offer for transportation; the tokens to do it no longer exist, nor do two of the shields that could make new tokens. :( I have emailed @Mesanna, but for now, there is nothing else I can do.

    Brian

    My transfer character is on Izumo I have all shard shields. It just takes time for me to get there.
    Atlantic would take about 10 days I just left there. Most US shards would take up to two weeks transfer time.

    If you want something moved put the items in a bag with a book your name on cover I would like a rune to your house that has a mail box on the shard it's going to.

    THP has a good way to get around with shields he doesn't have.
    Give me a token from any shard you have a shield for I can drop it off at the shard you don't have.
    Then you can move your things on your own time.

    oh wow, sorry Brian. Yeah, a friend happened to with his animals for some strange reason the animals didn't go with him.

    I tell everyone to watch your character leave with another account or ask a friend watch you leave.

    I'm leaving Izumo now.

    I have lots of room if anyone needs some boxes off other shards.

    Agreed. I say they just be turned off until Halloween every year. They are a griefers favorite tool.

    Agreed; the only good use I've ever seen for a harbinger was the fest event on Pacific. Otherwise, they're used only for griefing, be it IDOCs, auctions, community gatherings/festivals, etc. I'd also add giant turkeys to that list; I'm starting to see those being used more and more as well.

    I'm really sorry this happened because I know I'd be upset if I lost my shield deeds. But in all fairness Brian, didn't you have a yellow crystal for sale on your rares vendor that allows these to be spawned? It's a 2 way street sometimes. :(

    Nope, that wasn't on mine - I refuse to sell them, for just this reason. Mine was front row, 2nd from the left. I'm pretty sure that was on the back row, furthest left; Deaol's maybe?
