Does size matter?

    About Traders Quest.

    We know that distance doesn't count towards the chance for getting a rare reward, as long as you don't use moongates.

    We also know, that killing ambush spawn only effects the amount of gold donated to city treasury and the amount of resources rewarded.

    We also know, that not killing ambush spawn doesn't effect the chance for getting a rare reward.

    But...

    Does the size of the order (1-5 x 5 to 1-5 x 20) count towards anything?
    I assume that a 5x15 order would give you a better chance for getting a rare reward than a 5x5, am I right?

    Does the type of container make any difference?

    And now a plea:

    As the number of different goods (1-5) only effects the amount of gold donated to city treasury and the amount of resources rewarded, why not make it random whether you get an 1 item order or a 5 item order, please?!?

    Oh, and why the harsh penalty for dying? I think it would be more fair to lose 50% of the goods rather than, as it is now, losing the order itself, leaving you with a pile of useless junk, in your backpack.

    I've run a couple 5x20 orders, all resulting in pinks (though most orders I do result in pinks it seems). I think reward distribution is random, or at least as "random" as UO's rng ever gets.
