With the letters being temporary, I wonder if they disappear on death? So if you bind yourself in south Qeynos and go over to Erudin at level 1, get the letter, attack a guard to get a ranger port back to south Qeynos, will you still have the letter or will it disappear?

Temporary items should only disappear from your inventory after you have been disconnected from the game after 30 minutes.

Just wanted to update and answer my own question. Yes the mail does disappear upon death. My other summoned temporary items remained but all the mail I had disappeared. So no ranger ports to gate back to bind points for quick mail delivery.

Okay, let's face it, Erudites are not well liked and Enchanters are not well liked. However, a level 4 Enchanter can caste "Illusion: Half Elf" to get more money from the bards and, if you leave yourself bound in South Qeynos, you can take the boat to Erudin, get the letter, and gate back to South Qeynos to start it all over again. In a period of a few hours one can build up quite a hefty some of cash.

You will see solitary bards in a lot of places in the world. Many of them have mail that they want delivered to major cities. If you hail them, they will ask if you are [interested] in delivering some mail for them. If you say "I am interested", they will say something like they have a letter that they want you to [deliver] to [freeport] or some other city. Sometimes they have pouches, sometimes they have letters. You say "I will deliver to Freeport" (or whatever city they want mail to go to), and they'll hand you a pouch or a letter to deliver to that location, and tell you who to deliver it to (usually someone in the bard guild).

Aside from the solitary bards scattered throughout the planet (at least the pre-Kunark sections) there are also bards in the bard guilds in the main cities that want you do deliver pouches of mail to other major cities. Some of these bards have more than one pouch to deliver to different places.

Places that I know of that have bards that want mail delivered:
Freeport
Nektulos
Innothule
Feerrott
Rivervale
Qeynos
Surefall
Highkeep
Kelethin
Kaladim
Felwithe
Erudin
Ak'Anon

I'm sure that there are other bards out there that I'm forgetting, or never found.

Also, one more thing to note, In Freeport and Qeynos (and maybe Kelethin, I don't recall for sure there), letters to that city go to one NPC in the bard guild, but pouches to that city go to another bard in the guild. The pouches will go to the same NPC that wants you to deliver pouches of mail to other cities.

I think one NPC in one city hands you either a pouch or letter and tells you to take it to the wrong NPC in the destination city. This was definitely a bug in there a long time ago, but it may have been fixed by now. If you learn which NPCs accept the pouches, and which NPCs accept the letters, though, then you don't need to worry about where you were told to take the mail, you can just deliver it to the right person. Each pouch or letter says which city it goes to in the item name, so there's no problem having a bunch of mail to be delivered later just sitting in your bank.

If you are an Erudite, you will eventually have to leave Odus and visit Qeynos. Every time you go to Qeynos, do this quest for a few extra gold. This is especially good when combined with some of the other quests that require you to travel to Qeynos, such as the fisherman conversion quest, or delivering Erud's Tonic to Moodoro.
Especially good for newbie clerics
# Aug 01 2000 at 9:25 AM Rating: Decent
Very good quest for newbie clerics who want to have more than cloth armor. At level 5 this quest becomes a snap and you can have yourself a new piece of leather(not patchwork) every 1-1 1/2hrs. Just get the letter, take the boat to qeynos, hand it in, and gate back. With a little timing, you can catch the same boat you took about 1 min after you get to the docks. Good luck!
