As all of you know, the Flux Shield leaves in 2 weeks, and the Heroes' Cape is long gone. I was unable to raise the cash for a Heroes' Cape, and probably won't make it for a Flux Shield. And the new item(s) are, quite honestly, pretty terrible.
So, I know there's a stigma against trading game items for metagame/separate game items, but as I (and many people, including my brother) cannot legally donate, can we (for now) negotiate trades with others using other currency (namely Kingdom of Loathing Mr. As)? Me and my brother are both pretty wealthy, with around 100+million meat each. So, while we have lots of $10 tickets in KoL, we can't really get any in Twilight Heroes.
I don't really see anything bad about this; all we need to do is find someone who can donate, and it makes no difference whether they donate $10 to us of to Jick. There are 2 scenarios: 1. Player B donates to Jick, gets a Mr. A. Player A is sad. 2. Player B donates to Ryme, gets a Gold Star, Player A swaps that for a Mr. A. Finally, it could serve to stabilize Star prices, which are kind of... unstable at the moment.
So after this long manifesto made because of my want for a Flux Incapacitor, what say you, reader, on this topic?
