Case# 875: Zu Seedling Payment Scam

Post by noivad » Sat Jul 24, 2010 11:42 am

A concerned citizen reports that certain individuals are trying to shake down mystics and others for coins for kudzu seedlings in common areas. Kudzu in common areas is public property and anyone may claim seedlings resulting from common use 'zu without paying a coin.

Wait- isn't there a seedling vendor in E farms?

What's the problem?

I never have enough pack space for all my seeds, so if anyone wants a little zu, please let me know.

(1) To clarify: kudzu seedlings resulting from farming of kudzu in common areas of puddleby -- namely TC -- are free of charge. The planter cannot request payment for seedlings dropped by the killing of 'zu by someone else.

(2) There are bags that hold up to 10 seeds at a time in case you didn't realize Eirian. You could carry 30 seedlings and grab my "Omega Zu" macro or gorvins Zu macro or Geo's Zu macro and plant from your bag assuming you have 1 slot free.

Thanks Noi! Though I'm not a skilled a zu yet at all, I do have two bags already, and each is currently full. I end up with extra every time I farm in order to practice using the macros (I have several). So when I say I have a lot... It's practically sprouting out of my ears. :)

So basically mystics and younger healers and fighters can't farm kudzu, because they can't farm it in safe places? And if they do, other people are free to steal them?
Helpful GM exclaims, "Mystics can fly and walk through walls. They don't need boats on the water, and they can teleport at will!"

No, that's not true. They are free to farm zu in totally safe spot away from regular foot traffic. If you don't know where, I'll point it out to you (general "you"). Anyone who farms kudzu in town can't expect others to respect their farm.

Actually, it was a Mystic who informed me that someone was trying to shake him down for coins for kudzu he obtained by killing a plot on tc soil.
