Odd things I've read about the nature of Campaigns has me wondering if my ideas of a dedicated crafter or resource-gatherer aren't possible in this game. I've seen that when you join a Campaign you "are limited" in what you can bring in with you, and if you leave a Campaign you can't take much of anything back out with you (except when the Campaign ends, in which case you get to take "some" things out with you).
Is this true? If so, it means you can't set up a shop in the Eternal Kingdoms and rely on buying and trading resources from explorers, because the resources are stuck in Campaigns. And it means you can't head out into a Campaign for resources, and then come back and trade or sell them (except once every couple of months).
Are they really expecting crafters to head into a Campaign, spend a couple weeks rebuilding and setting up new supply lines within that Campaign, only being able to sell to a few hundred non-enemy players that are also in that Campaign, having it last another month or so, and then having to start all over again with only a portion of what you had?
If someone has a better understanding of all this, can you please explain?
