Right now all the messages like “Char A gave something to char B” are all displayed in the same color, even if your char is the one who received something. It’s easy to simply not notice that someone gave something to your char when lots of stuff is going on.
Like you have several rabbits entering the area, then lots of things being handed from one person to another, then someone walking in and out of buildings, projects being finished/started etc.
It happened to me several times already that I noticed something in my char’s inventory only after a few days.
I guess it also would be nice to mark in some different way attack which were against your character. Because if there’s lots of sparring in a town, then the situation is similar.
