+15 dex to a crimson....

    Just want to give everyone a heads up..and I'm sure a lot of people already know this but for those who do not..
    There is a few chars going around and mentioning a name of someone they think you might know, saying that they are that person.Then they tell you that they can add +15 dex to your crimson , they have you put the crimson in a box and use an axe on the box...thus making your crimson drop to the ground.

    Have to be pretty dim-witted to fall for that one. ( my apologies if this happened to you)

    This happened to me once, in a different fashion.

    Newbie-type female char comes up to me in Luna (they partied me out of the blue...you should already suspect something!)
    They ask me to hold their regeant bag while they get another character.
    Inotice the bag puts my total backpack at 125/125 items. (apparently there is a trick that allows you to see the total amount of objects in a player's backpack)
    Inside the pack is also an apron, player made.
    Character tells me " yeah, that is my cute apron. You should try it on!"
    IF I would have taken my Cincture off and placed it in my pack, it would have fallen to the ground.
    I then spammed everyone at Luna about the scam taking place, and the player bolted.

    VERY VERy TRICKY on their part.

    Be careful out there folks.

    If someone gives you a bag to hold at Luna that causes your item count to go to 125, there is always thoses trash chests around the bank you can put their bag for safe keeping.

    Nah it didn't happen to me...But wanted to let peps know that it is something going around right now.
    A scam is a scam..they catch the right person and they win :(
  6. If you fall for this scam, you deserve to lose your crimson.

    Someone tried this on me last night at brit bank, except she could add +5 HP to my Crimson...

    Of course i didn't fall for it. The things i told her would violate the stratics ROC though
