I just logged in one of my really old characters and on enter I got the message 'acquired item-spear' and 'lost item - van richten's excerpts'. Now he can't have been holding either of these since he's a ghost. The spear is nowhere to be seen and the book is right on my feet. So a) some dm should probably come and goble up that book before it someone steals it and b) Why would I acquire an item and some random item would drop? Could this be related to me thinking items are missing from some of my other toons?
