Have your character in your house (or someone elses ;-p). Put his keys in a box and log off (I had my chars sitting down). Log-in with another character!! OR First you must tame an animal, next type "the animals name" transfer, but dont press enter just yet. Click the log out button but dont press ok yet. press enter then (very fast) press the ok to log out. Now you will be logged out with no delay and you can log in with another character and your fist char. will still be sitting there.
