What's up with all the barrels?

  1. Are the barrels somekind of marking, or township lines? I see them everywhere and am just curious.

    For a while, I was stealing all the barrels I could find and placing them in the minax base. It was something to do during ROT. Got tired of it tho, and the yew roads kept being repaired.

    I completely demolished the minoc road however, and cleared one of the treasure hunting islands.

    As mentioned, the barrel road from Yew has been a handy trail to the player run town of Wispwood Shire for years. It used to be an active place, 2 years and more ago, I am not sure about it now.

    Besides leaving a trail, some players drop barrels to prevent house placement, and some just out of boredom or to annoy.

    With Croaker, I think barrels are used in basically the same way as dogs peeing on things in the real world. :p

    It's always been fun taking barrels and stacking them up around unsuspecting players homes. Kinda like dropping a trailer park on their plot...la

    l:p

    Also, barrels can be stacked 4 high and filled with 20 units of water each. I haven't done it, but it could be very annoying to build a wall of barrels in front of someone's house.

    I was trying to build a swimming pool in the minax base. I think I had more than 350 barrels there at one point, but someone got annoyed and started running a barrel drinking script there.
