How do you Impalong?!?
in the secure buildings are forges and coffins with signs, you may drop and item in it without anyone else being able to pick it up besides yourself and the main trusted helpers.
anyone can imp these items but only you can pick it back up. sometimes you loose the ability to pick it back up after logging off to long, in that case myself or a trusted helper can return the item to you.
if of course you Name your items!
-additional note: be careful not to drop your items in someone elses backpack or container.
materials are in a separate central building, Crafters will be given access to this building. and we can pass out lumps to anyone else who would like to join in imping
Every bit of quality you add is appreciated by someone =).
