Just remembered one from Delirium's post.

Setting - Kered and Vecerin are walking through the oak forest returning from the Sands.

Kered says, "Hmm, better guard you. You stink."
Kered assumes a guard position next to you.
You walk to the south, Kered follows you.
You stumble into a snare.
>Stand
You are in the middle of something
Kered stops 3 brigand approach attempts.
>Stand
You are in the middle of something.
>Proclaim Yeah, I'm eternally stuck in the middle of something and need help quick.
Beamer responds from afar, 'I don't know, eternally is a long time'
>Stand
You will be busy for 93 more seconds.
You say, "Um."


-Kered managed to guard me successfully through every single one of their approach attempts for the next 93 seconds. They probably tried reapproaching every 5 seconds. Kered's guarding success was close to 50 at the time.

Lorican says to you "Shove your stave where the sun don't shine Connie"
A ugly man with whiskers coughs, "er yeah that"
Seabee responds from afar, "opps.. sorry about that"

You take a large wooden oak bedframe.

You cannot put some coins in a tiny battered pouch. Try splitting them up.
You raise your eyebrow.

You slash wildly at a thug! Critical hit!
You fumble your iron gladius!
>take gladius
You do not see a gladius in the area.
You raise your eyebrow.
>look
You see a dark alley blah blah blah...
You see some bandages and some tunics.
You mumble something under your breath.

He is holding nothing in his right hand and a long shield in his left hand.

Hah. As soon as the thug died I tried grabbing my gladius off the floor and it worked.

I had the phantom tobacco bug. I was done killing Cinerans for the day, and I was parcelling up each pinch of tobacco into indivdual pouches. Anyways, I had a pinch of tobacco inhand, when a Hoplite walked past me into the fields. By natural instinct, I grabbed and wielded my trident. Welp, once I didn't see anything more of the Hoplite and night fell, I figured I may as well be moving on, except..I wento pick up my lantern, but it told me 'You cannot stow a pinch of tobacco'. Confused, I proceeded to check around for any misplaced tobacco..none to be seen. So, I closed all the pouches and dropped them, then tried to pick up my lantern...same message. So, I tried a different combination of picking things up, but I could not carry my trident and attempt to pick up the lantern...whenever I tried that, I'd keep getting the same message. Tried sleeping, logging out..same thing. Finally, in frustration I proclaimed...and one of the GMs, can't remember if it was Bactrian or Testudo...said it was rather odd, and had not seen it before. The GM then fixed it, whatever the bug was, and told me 'to not do that again.' And the pinch of tobacco was lying on the ground even, so I didn't lose it! I was pretty happy, even if it was pretty odd. The only thing I can think of is the mechanics for tobacco, being having to be poured or filled, doesn't allow you to automatically put whatever you are holding into a container when you pick up another object.

Strange.

Dunno if it's a bug, but definately a mystery.

Grouping items in a Toga room and the pile having infinite of that item.

Lighting a lantern and being able to carry it in your sack.

Being able to stand up after being impaled.

Attacking Feysal.

Sparring three soldiers with a shield out and aiming for armored parts of their bodies to get maximum SP out of your weapon and shields (back when blocking gave SP).

Battlecrying for SP.

Powerflower potion. Although the flower itself was useful at times, the potion was never considered a bug and as far as I know, still isn't.

*laugh* Best post ever.

Take a close look at the pickaxe head at the top of the ladder going down into the sea caves. Never failed to amuse me.

Hey, that's how Shin first met Tovania....

I guess you could look at it that way. It wasn't exactly a potion, it was similar to the pendulous white flowers that some of the Boukoloi used, but 'refined'. Raiden was selling it years ago, before the flowers were considered a bug, so I figured why not...it gave inhuman stats across the board. Someone said that it was supposed to wear off but it never did and the GMs never complained (about that particular thing anyway) so call it what you will.
