I thought vendor contents remain retrievable even after the vendor expires. Have you tried accessing vendors through the house menu?

lol! oh trust me i am!

i just tryed to access the house my vendor was on and there didn't seem to be a way to retreive the items. I always figured the items either just dissapeared or fell to the ground.

Vendors that crash go into the house sign until their time is up.
You should be able to retrieve your items by either shift clicking the house sign or shift clicking yourself the retrieve the "vendor" (which will just be your items)
If you don't get to it before time runs out the items go to the owner of the house.

I accidently ate one of my purple legs of lamb.
Accidently on purpose.

But I did learn a valuable lesson. Yes, purple legs of lamb are indeed edible.

Oh yeah... forgot about this one.... Purple Torches turn normal if you light them.... I accidentally clicked on my son in law's Sigel Purple torch... I felt so bad I could have crawled into an ant hole without armor or weapons.... well... maybe not that bad.. but I was begging forgiveness for a few days. He was nice about it, but I felt horrible!

Not quite as bad as what Ive been seeing...

I had been playing for around 3 months, it was not long after AoS came out, and I happened across a +60 ASH. Thought I had put it away and started recall mining Gold to enhance some luck stuff that I had and wound up in the middle of 3 Reapers, died and had no idea where I was.

Feeling that time was of the essence, I used the "stuck" option and got to WBB where I got rezzed and found a group wiling to help me get it back.

The reaallly bad thing: I had no idea which rune I had gone to! We tried all of them but the person who was gating us around didnt have much magery so it took us a while. It proved to be a while too long...

It was not a very fun night...

Not a rare at all, but probly one of the best weapons I'll ever say I had, was from the new player chiv quest, Daemon (at the time) Slayer Undead slayer 30% ML 25% SSI 35% DI broadsword, had no idea that it was worth anything or hard to get(yeah, this was my 1st char ever, didn't know about losing young status before 40 hours or whatever). One day I go running around Ilsh Valor, not realizing I'm at 390 something total skill points and at 400 everything would attack me freely, I start wacking an ettin, gain in tactics, and notice an elder gazer to the south. This is the first time I experienced any magic spell cast on me, and it was bad. Ran to shrine and back to body SEVERAL times and couldn't find my original body out of the 20 or so laying there.

my biggest loss wasn't really a loss but a mistake on my party for selling something instead of keeping it.... i was at an dueling event and got a royal brit SHOCKTROOPER sash, ice white like the catskills brit guard sash's but different name and only 12 were givin out well i was still pretty new to the game so when the chance came up to sell the sash for 5m and use the cash i had to buy my first 18x18 i jumped at the chance. cause a 18x18 was surely better than a sash that does nothing. well little did i know 18x18's come and go but event items are the hard things to get.

Well, after recently coming back I decided to check on my characters. On my necro/mage I had an old golem I used to do swords training on. I needed the stable space so I took him out and let him go thinking I could get a new one. Little did I know that 100% poison resist golems could no longer be made.

DOH!

Not really rare.. but expensive (by siege standards)... took a night's kiss out to farm daemons with Kat. Forgot to bless it and lost it when i died to the spawn. Its my most embarassing loss because I went home, got another one.. and did the exact same thing right away. :P

I was at swoops, I had been there for hours collectiong minor artys. I finally grew weary and left. I stop at the Guild hoise, to dump the pack of items I had snagged. I camr across these armor parts, byt the stats where not so hot, so I tossed them.

Later I was reviewing my log files and i noticed the descp showing part of armor set, having no clue what that meant, i searched uostuff and, much to my dismay, I had tossed away about 3 armor sets.

Hehe... I got another one that I just remembered... there was a really great month long war on Siege recently. Anyways.. I'd get home from work, grab a beer and jump in game to join the fun with my alliance. I'm running around and doing rather well that particular night.. but inevitably died. No big deal... go home and resuit up. While I'm looking for more armor, I notice that my LRC bag wasn't where I usually put it. *smacks forhead* I was re-arranging all 33 pieces of LRC armor and jewels the night before when I logged off and when I rushed out the door to go fighting.. I took it along for a ride with me. *groans*

this seems insignificant in the contemporary UO game, those who played years ago will understand though. I had finally managed to accumulate 10K gold and two pairs of black sandals....... they were the ultimate rare back then.. and 10K was a fortune. I locked them down in my first home, a tiny one in Cove. Didn't log out for a couple hours later.

I logged in the next day and the entire chest was gone. My first experience with that bug, and obviously i shall not forget this for a long, long time.....

Sandals are one of my major downfalls. :) I think I have like 5 pair of silver, 3 black, 5 red and ummmm a couple that look like a purply red to me.. all old ones.. THEN LOL.. I have my boxes and boxes of NEW sandals! For a long time I shopped for sandals regularly looking for the red ones before I found out they were really a shade of browny red. But there ARE variations in the shades, so I am happy. I am slowly blessing them all so I can wear whenever I like. :)

I went on a cleaning spree and compared the colors til my eyes crossed and then sold duplicated colors a couple years ago. Well... I do have one chest with a total of 93 pairs or footwear, mostly sandals. The rare colors box has 20 or so pair in assorted shades.
