Blood rubies

PostAuthor: silverfields2 » Thu May 30, 2013 6:39 pm

Hello team,

I'm not the only one with this problem. How should we Icly treat the broken blood ruby quest? Bug report has been filed. Meanwhile, should we find a DM and get our points that way? Or is the National treasure of Ferrell legally on the free market?

Thanks

With another trade fair on the way, I wanted to bump this and see if folks should be thinking of selling them there. I'll leave the quest thing as a separate issue, or bug (if it is).

After some discussion, the Team's ruling on this is that the blood rubies currently found within the confines of the caves there are not True Blood Rubies, the precious Ferrell treasures. They are more akin to minor holy relics, still with some power and useful, but the true rubies are far more rare...what the orcs are pulling from the rocks are marred with imperfections that lessen their value. This puts them more on par with things such as the sir satin items or mikon holy scrolls and what have you that you may find with regard to how the blood rubies on the market are traded and sold around.

Obviously this might produce a bit of a frown from respective groups, and Ferrells Sheriff may not like the practice, but it is not illegal to trade and sell them.

As for the quest, consider it broken at present.
