Please clear this up for me...
Okay, so with ownership only people who befriend you can
get things from your corpse, now is this not true for clanned
characters? Also I have stumbled across various objects
left on the grund, but when I try to pick them up it says
"This is not yours." Is this part of the ownership thing,
and if so, how does this happen?
I don't know, just confused about what the facts are...

If I recall correctly, only you or someone you befriend can remove
an item from your corpse, in addition, if you're clanned, and the
person whose corpse you want something from are clanned, you can
use the steal skill to take things from the corpse. In either
of the latter 2 cases, it remaines 'owned' by the person whose
corpse it is. So if I befriend someone, and they take something
from my corpse, and drop it, it remains owned, and therefore
you can't take it.

Joachim is right in all particulars... part of Cypher's original
question has to deal with a bug that exists in ownership. When a
PC dies, if they don't come back to get their stuff, then when their
corpse decays their gear will be on the ground and still owned by
them. It is supposed to revert to being unowned (idea being, you've
had plenty of time to claim your stuff if you wanted it).
If you encounter owned stuff on the ground, espeically at inns
where the newbie clutter can pile up fast, let an immort know. We
have permission from the imps to purge these items and replace them
with identical, unowned items. I personally will do this whenever
asked... as this is a sort of unusual circumstance, doing purge/loads
is not in any immort's job description, so if someone else tells you
they don't want to do that, please don't get upset with them. It's
the sort of thing that would normally get an imm in deep trouble. =)

I've got a question about ownership, actually. I heard that one of the
features of item ownership would be that a player could not junk an item
owned by someone else. Is this true? What about looted items? Recently,
there was a nasty situation where a strung item was looted and then later
junked. If owned items can't be junked (which is how it should be), that
wouldn't have been possible.
