A note for everyone regarding Aerian's new tactics.....
Iff he shows up in your location, makes a lot of scroll (that used to be called spamming, and was frowned upon...hmm, things must have changed) and then leaves, you should check your inventory.
He has taken to slipping you common items...pouches, for instance, loaded with Octagon runes to make them invisible in your EQ list.
I am guessing the one he slipped me was supposed to have an owl rune on it, but it had an oval instead...whoops, huh Aerian?
Anyway, if he does plant one of these items on you he can track you easily, and if the item included an owl rune, a Seer can far track to you and do nasty things, like shatter your floor runes if you are in a shop.
Then along comes Aerian, who ghosts in and robs you.
So, moral of the story, beware Thakrians bearing gifts... if you think you have been given something, it can be identified by the putrid smell, and of course it's tendancy to show up at the bottom of your INFO INV list.
