    I'm curious about how many people these days use the stewards that you can get from the Cleanup system for 10,000 points and what your stewards hand out.

    I've got one on Siege that hands out seeds and miscellaneous odds and ends, some crafted, some just collected. And I just put up one on Balhae to give away liquor bottles (and a few other surprises) from the liquor smuggler crates.

    So, what's your Steward got in his or her backpack? And what's been the best thing you've ever received from a steward?

    I have one on the roof of my auction house, it usually has about 50 runes to the house and 10 one million gold checks. A nice surprise for those who are interested enough in the house to take a rune. :) It's empty right now though.

    Best thing I've ever recived would be a conjurer's trinket.

    :eek: Hmmm...where to begin to reply to that.... I suppose you would not be in favor of a "Be Kind to Your Steward Day," would you?

    My Steward when she is busy gives out the monthly GL's Calendar. When I get a chance to stock her.

    She also on occasion gives drinks.. though I'm thinking I ought to put in another Steward to pass bottles out up in the Tavern.

    They only give you what some player puts on them. Like you go to their place and whatever they put on them, like a vendor, you can get. They just don't hand out random prizes lol Most people just put runes on them to their shop, but I guess you can have them pass out anything you like.

    Ya, the one I got the conjuerer's trinket from was called "quit game, say free to get my stuff" or something like that. The guy pretty much put everything valuable he owned on it. The IDOC'ers camping the house were quite happy once they realized there were hundreds of mils in free stuff they didn't even have to fight over lol.

    Was it on Catskills? I put on a lot of 1st year vet rewards, stuff I get from idocs, white and black plants, and general stuff that some players might consider treasure.
    Of course my keyword/phrase is hard to figure out ;)

    When I go shopping I usually go to Atlantic. So I'm pretty sure it was there. But that's nice of you :)

    It would be cool if more people did something like this!

    Maybe some of the people who have storage issues and want to get some of their excess stuff into the hands of other players without going the player-run vendor route might want to set up a steward. The items you put in the steward's backpack don't seem to count against your available storage, so setting one up to get rid of some of your excess stuff wouldn't exacerbate your storage problem. I am not sure if you can put more than one steward in your house at one time.

    You can put 125 items in the steward's backpack as single items or in containers. (For example, Queen Mum and some others sponsored a beach party on Sonoma last weekend and the steward at the beachhouse handed out bags of stuff you might need at a beach party, e.g., a bedroll!)

    If you make it clear what the keyword is and make sure your house is public so people can get to the steward, then every visitor you get has the potential to receive one item (or container of items, if you put containers in the steward's backpack) every day from the steward. If you can put multiple stewards in your house, I don't know if the once per day limit would apply separately to each steward or collectively to all of the stewards in your house.

    It's a bit of a challenge to name the steward and make the keyword very clear with a limit of 20 characters for the steward's "name," so one of the engravable signs tacked on the wall near the steward or maybe a book locked down next to it to explain what the keyword is would probably be very helpful in getting people to talk to the steward.

    Lastly, the stewards look like mannequins, so they have no hair. But you can pick the race and sex for your steward and you can put clothing on it as well, so it's very possible you can just work them right into the scenery, if you're a clever decorator.

    One gives out booze at Serpent Cross Tavern. Goodman's Rune Libary gives out runes to the libary if it is stocked.

    I haven't set one up yet, but thinking of setting one up on the steps or near the steps for trick or treating.
    I think that will be fun.

    Found a lot o uses for these including gift bags , runes for vendors , schedules of player events,random goodies on there. Currently using to give runes to Moonglow zoo with, directions on the house sign to say "rune" to get one, for those participating in an investigation there for the governor. House being in luna seemed like a neat way to use it.
    Actually ran outta runes!

    I used to have several up, all giving out food items -- anything from cakes to candy or magic fish pies. Right now only one is standing, offering a free rune to visitors. Guess it's time to get more creative. lol
