You will get your things back if you rent another mule.

Oh, did it happen just recently? I returned my mule maybe 10-15 minutes ago and when I had done that my mule was still there by some strange reason. I therefore took a walk (RP a bit with char Altrix who I also told about this) and then I went back since it didn't dissappear and I returned the mule (just a while ago). Maybe some kind of bug made me return you mule somehow?

I think the same thing may have happened to me. I was leading my donkey when someone else appeared who I found out later also had a donkey. What I saw when the other person came with his donkey was the disappearance of my donkey. Also, when I tried the commands "Stay" and "Follow me" I saw the other person's donkey respond, but the other person's donkey would only follow me for a bit before returning to its owner. I figured out that my donkey had gone invisible when I bumped into an invisible wall where I should have been able to walk. After that, I was able to lead my donkey away with no problem. I found that my donkey disappears whenever another person with a donkey enters my field of vision, but when the other person is beyond my sight my donkey becomes visible again. Hope I helped!

The disappearing mule is a known bug :(

Sometimes it reappears after a minute or so. Otherwise I'm sorry but you lost him :(

The stuff will be on any other mule that you hire.

I way I found which 'prevents' this is to talk a lot to the mule.

Cycle "Follow me" "stay here" every few minutes (I usually do it when I get an interrupt) - appears to work.

In the half moonlight of a sleepless night
I caress the man of my dreams,
in the cold light of day my dreams fade away,
and nothing is quite what it seems.
He tenderly nibbles my toes, my ears, nose and eyes,
and stroking my cheeks with a rose.
My pulse is erratic, I feel quite ecstatic,
who is the man of my dreams,
I open my eyes, and scream with surprise,
It's Jack, my rented mule!
Yet be careful when at the stable
Watch if rent Bessie or Jack
Ole Tom will tell you as he limps toward town
Now missing three of his toes plus his mule.
Bessie likes to nibble then disappear!




You must have rented Bessie!

it was not Bessie... it started with a J... i cant remember i should after all the time it walk off on me... lol. but maybe i should wait on renting the mules... maybe with all the silvers i never got back, should be my payment on owning this vanishing mule. i know i will never get back my 6 silvers...

but maybe when i rent a future mule. i should tie a rope around us so it cant run away or would i vanish with the mule where all mules go to. but what would happen... lol

Loan timer?

How long do these mules last anyhow? ((if the bug doesn't take them)) Is it set amount of time, till you enter the city again, till you talk to the stable boy again or what? Also, do you get the 2sp back when you return the mule?

Just trying to get some info before investing in this beast of burden.

If the bug doesn't get it you can have the mule as long as you want, but you can't enter shops or caves with it nor any other building, except gates obviously, You get the 2 silvers back when you speak with any of the mule lender.

Missing again

Dang it, I got hit with the bug on my first try. I went down into a mine to grab ore. When I got back, the mule was gone. Sheesh, at least nothing was on it yet, still, that's 2.5 silver lost. What a waste. I think I'll wait till it's working better before trying again.

The mule disappears after a while if you stay away from it. Yours was probably not the bug version, but the feature - also people can nick them from you as well.

If you're going to be away from the poor mule for long, get a mule-sitter.

The bug described here happens when the mule is right next to you, and decides to disappear.
