    As I was roaming the countryside this weekend, every so often I would enter a clearing and see a barkeep or other NPC standing there. Were they once vendors at a house that collapsed? If so, will they eventually walk away or vanish? I'm guessing if someone tried to place a house over top of them, it wouldn't work. Is that right?

    if you test place a house over a barkeep he moves to the front of the placement... we just tried this a week or so ago... they don't poof, I think to get rid of them you need to page a GM

    as for different types, GM or EM (from long ago), I don't know if they'll move or block placement.... we've had Holden the Sentry in front of the guild house for as long as I can remember, but he's in a spot where a house would not touch, so no way to test it
