... according to the last patch info. Does that mean they go to the market if no one is assigned/carrying it? Also the current "death rules" are a bit more specific about it ("Life and Death", 3.2.1). Are these up-to-date? I don't remember "credit pouches" dropping last time I killed a char...
And what about Jaggo's point with the credit pouch thing? A lot of people managed to evade that issue when approached about it. Not that I'm greedy (ok, I am greedy, but there should be *some* reward for killing people), but if it's in the rules but not part pf the game, why is it in the rules in the first place?
I believe part of the issue is that we want to *discourage* people from killing newbies and random players against whom they have no legitimate IC grievance. Thus, not saying "you get 50k for every newbie you kill and 5mil for every friend you kill", helps us keep the number of dead (and discouraged) players to a minimum.
“Items now transfer like other entities upon death”
“they go to the market if none of the other conditions are met”
“Items/weapons/droids housed or stored in a facility become the property of the owner”
Being stored in a facility (or, presumably, other container like a ship) is one of the "other conditions" mentioned. If you have someone's ship in your docking bay and they die, you get that ship, for example.
So it seems the only Items going to the market (which sounds like it needs an interface fix to allow you to see them) are ones that are carried by characters that are killed outside.
"May the Grace of Ara go with you, and His Vengeance be wrought upon your enemies."
Somewhat related question: I was assigned an NPC for a transfer job which I later backed out of (the person who wanted to hire me was acting the jerk). Some time later, said person was executed. The NPC is still assigned to me. Money never exchanged hands or anything, this guy just assigned me the NPC and got himself killed. Is this mine now?
ETA: The reason I ask is that my inventory says I don't own any NPC's, so it's a bit unclear. :)

If you don't own it, it isn't yours. He may have transferred it prior to death, or he may only have been the manager to begin with, rather than the owner. If you provide the ID someone can look it up to ensure that it has an owner at all, rather than having become unowned upon his death, though, but I am not aware of any bugs with this feature.
