That is, until, the merchandise is inside a “secure zone” coated by a Workbench or Campfire. /u/Ghoststriker determined to dig a bunch of pits, label them, and simply throw all of his stuff into these pits like some sort of animal. He even created a rather amusing commercial on YouTube that extolls the virtues of this new strategy to retailer your gadgets—and I’m scared to confess that he is very convincing.
