I have a deed on a mountaintop. It took me 5 parts of forever just getting up there with a refresh Fo priest, a tent and dieing a lot. Bringing clay up there is just not a good option. Luckily I had a builder alt I wanted up there too, so I loaded him with clay before using the one time teleport to deed. The funny thing is, I really don't need alot of clay up there, just enough for a forge, a well looks better then a fountain, and maybe a stone altar. It wouldn't destroy regional trade letting me use some hard, time consuming way to make a few "crude clay" or mud kiln. Dried straw, mud and water are used as building material in most part of the world, please Rolf, don't force me to build a road from a 4k mountain top, just to get a few clay every blue moon. That being said, we can make gold out of rock with a transmutation staff, why not use the same mechanic to make clay out of sand/dirt, at the ridiculous expense it is today, for those rich enough to not being bothered with a long haul.
