Mailbox Bug

Post by Hadwyn » Wed Dec 20, 2017 3:44 am

Is this a bug?

Log:

...Everything begins to fade to black.

You feel yourself leaving your body... rising up into the air, you feel
more free than you have ever felt before...

However, before your deity comes to collect your soul, you feel a strange
pulling sensation as strange and colorful mists swirl around you...
You get from a mail box labelled 'hadwyn' sent by ailyn.
A nest of vipers erupts from
The myriad fangs sink into you, there is searing pain followed by everything going dark!

Note:

It also seems my body was unrecoverable after this happened. Which means a great deal was lost of my time and energy into this character. If this is some sort of prank or test, I am pissed... even IC action is incredibly annoying given there is no potential way for me to find any evidence upon the culprit behind the attack.

He never 'lost access' to his corpse. He opened an ask, and even though he went idle when I tried to answer I still retrieved his body and gave him a resurrection.

There is no corpse mishap in this potential issue/bug.

I also tested this with Tony's PC by sending a box of coin to him, and it did not trigger any traps.

If I recall, there is an object that looks like coins that turns into something else when picked up. This might not be a bug at all but IC someone getting revenge or teaching a lesson?

I am not sure about whatever lesson or revenge motive, but it seems to be something that does exist IC.

Apologies on the body issue. Wife and dog are great at picking moments to scream bloody murder when I have a little time to play.

It appears to be killing faster than the object messages, that is a bug, will clean this up pending update.

Also please keep posts on topic, that is just reporting on bugs.
A goblin, a trickster, a warrior? A nameless terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. A most feared being in all the cosmos. Nothing could stop, hold, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
