I've known the character, "G T" (well, I've known of him) since I used to see him running around Teth, when even beaming into Teth would scare me. Anyway, that guy (without me even explicitly asking, although it was clear he knew what was up), saw that I was in deep trouble at the entry room of the PoTB (1 body dropped, and then LOTS more trying to recover the first one -- it's called a "death spiral").
G T kept the lugians in the entryway busy, and allowed me to recover all my bodies. So I got all my items back (mostly mana stones, but it's just the sting of it).
In the meantime, I'm basically half the man I used to be. Time to log. =(
