I'll bet that many of you had had this happen to you before, and be extremely pissed off at it. This bug I'm talking about is what I like to call the "Ghosted Player" bug... just a name I gave to this bug that shows its face very few times, and only under a few circumstances...
Ever been mining, or fighting a monster, then meditate or drop into your inventory screen, only to suddenly hear that familiar entry sound for Keldrin Town? No loss of LCK happens, but you somehow respawn in Keldrin with ONLY a pickaxe and very few items... you may be wearing fullplate, and be carrying padded, and suddenly, those items are not there when you mysteriously appear in Keldrin. You try to cast a spell, and it says you are sleeping, even tho you wree walking around, trying to get out of Keldrin a second ago. So you #wake, cast a spell to test, and go back to your body.
You get to your body, and, for some possessed reason, it is STILL laying on the ground, wearing your armor and swinging a weapon! You get info on it, and it is called ",", a LEVEL -1 -1 character, with no #getinfo...
I've had this happen to me before many times, and it's really annoying. Luckly, I was always on my own server at the time, so I would just give myself the stuff the invisible players had, back. However, I logged onto Comet for a wee bit to do some explaoring, and had my broadsword, hatchet, padded armor and around 300 coins all eaten by the Ghosted Player...
I've seen it happen to at least 3 other people, of which one was -51-MoRpHiAs while he was mining. He simply whacked at the crystal, and then appeared in K town with nothing. Not even a pickaxe or anything.
This bug doesn't seem to come up all that often, but when it does, it can fukk a char over big time... possibly there is no solution to this, but it would still be nice to see if other ppl can recreate the bug and make an effort to try to find out exactly why it happens. I would, but I'm by far no expert 1337 coder, so I can only spot the biggest of problems, not fine little details.
(P.S. Heheh... sneaky JI, real sneaky... hiding the crystal there Ahhh yes... now all I have to do is get to lvl 60 again so I can actually mine some Ruby goodness up there )
