 n.— «Although the design staff has good intentions with story line behind the items and why this or that NPC are the only ones who should have them, the unfortunate reality is that most “campers” & “farmers” don’t give a damn about that. They are there only because it makes good money. Not only so, it precludes 90% of the people from getting these items, which means they have to buy it from the farmers. For people that actually give a damn about the plot as to why that particular NPC has it, the illusion is shattered over and over by the farmers who sits to wait for poor Mob to spawn over and over again, only for its items.» —“Sense of Time, Economy, and Camping” by Jeffrey Lin Usenet: alt.games.everquest June 10, 1999.
