Mountains out of molehills.

Just let him get the second earring already, and see if he pays. If he does, case closed, and whining can stop.

If he doesn't pay, then call him out, name and shame. If he doesn't pay up, then the farmer is not out any PP, just time. .......not that big of a deal.

Personally, "loot rights" selling is a murky thing to begin with.

But didn't realize that this is more like... P99's 4chan or something.

except instead of random anons its a shark attack of a small clique that posts here all the time. so he's doubly fucked.

Farmer would be out PP since Alevert already looted the first earring and didn't pay for it, that's the entire problem here.

No, he's not out anything but time. The farmer didn't pay any cash out to anybody. All he would be out is the time he put into the camp. It's not like he handed cash over to someone and got nothing in return. You cannot be out cash that you never had to begin with.

If I understand things correctly there isn't a problem here. From what I've read, I believe this is how the events took place.

-Farmer been offering loot rights of earring for ages with no takers.
-Person in zone notices the desperation in this pixel junkie and strikes a deal for 2 earrings for sake of self convenience.
-Sometime after the first earring is looted, Farmer gets an offer from another Individual for more PP.
-Farmer tries to use dumb-fu on said Person in an attempt to get payment for half of the delivered product.
-Person resists the attempt and demands Farmer oblige his probably non-binding contract of 2 earrings.
-Farmer hatches a drug induced plan and proceeds to open the RNF forums.

Seems a pretty clear cut case of "who gives a shit?" If the scenario did indeed play out this way.

Dude you tell em and I think it is also important to be careful on the other side of the coin that is presumably two sided and watch out when you are buying loot rights because I was angling to get a child's tear for a long time and finally got someone to agree to a 7k price but then they just led me in and let me die so now I have to haunt east freeport apparently waiting for a shady dwarf to sail in on the boat that can help me out which as I'm sure you all know is just torture for me as it takes me away from my cabin in Lake Rathe and my leisure time in the Karanas but I will get back I promise you that and in the mean time the people stopping by the bar here on the docks are very interesting and they tell some funny stories that I can't really begin to comprehend that involve staring at walls and rolling for the boy scouts turn in and people getting legal advice for their pet lions which I didn't even know you could have if you weren't a druid or enchanter but these people are like level 60 worried about pet lions that must be below level 20 and they are trying to get the GMs involved I mean what gives but I also know that pet lions can get you in trouble with certain people in south karana who are really testy on those things and elephants too now that I think about it but I just tell them to take it up with the aviaks because these people are basically my neighbors and I always make sure to check in with them before I start cooking in their karana kitchen but a lot of people think the centaurs are in charge but that is bull because the centaurs are self entitled pricks and I truly despise all the warriors that enable them by working with them for their precious armor so just hang in there dude because i know that it seems like pretty much everyone on the server hates you but you know that isn't true because it can't be more than 90 percent because there are quite a few new people here that don't know you so chin up and come hang out at my cabin anytime as long as I am there because I don't want you there when I'm away

Imaging frequenting the forums of a game you quit to criticize people that still play.

Isn't Alevert the level 60 dwarf warrior who was using Wooly Spider Silks on Drolvargs to FTE mobs from groups in KC, and to an entirely different group "claiming" Captain then not leaving when an entire group was already there because they missed calling the CC? Honestly one of the scummiest and least pleasant people I have met since Hasbinbad, probably worse.
Not surprised about this.

He is the worst kind of scum even to his guildies. I hope he will soon be removed.
