This is from the NGE era of Galaxies. I think of what a spectacular job the emuski crew do of presenting the old world, so very much bug free, no really bizarre things such as cropped up in the NGE.
Things were not smooth in the NGE for crafting characters. Lairs would spawn in your shop/house door way, or you could return to your home to find it inexplicably buried, like this. So annoying!
