    Update to the magic carpet in Changelog 321.

       o People following someone on a magic carpet artifact will no longer be blown about by the wind - though the leader still can be.

    The divine voice of Avechna, the Avenger reverberates powerfully, "Congratulations, Morkarion, you are the Bringer of Death indeed."

    You see Estarra the Eternal shout, "Morkarion is no more! Mourn the mortal! But welcome True Ascendant Karlach, of the Realm of Death!

    Now they just need to fix it so the carpet doesn't work in the arena--if they haven't done so yet.  (At least when playing stuff like Slippers or Freezetag).

    Shield Amplifier. Just really the first time it happen to me.
  • KarlachKarlach God of Kittens. Member Posts: 3,868 Transcendent
    So this stone. Probing it doesn't give any indication of if it's charged, or if not how far charged it is.

    And then every syntax I've tried to set it in a room doesn't work either.



    Can I get a manual please?

    So now that these auctions are won, what do the Ur'stone, Shield amplifier and Scorpion cocktail look like when you look at them?

    Also, very surprised on the prices of some of these things.

    The ur'Stone!

    The smooth, grey surface of this stone has been pocked and pitted with age. Fashioned into a crude, rudimentary slab, the stone is nonetheless curiously shaped, securely bound in bands of 
    black steel. Beneath the metal, dark, fetid moss spreads outward across the surface of the stone, as though attempting to putrefy the ur'Stone itself, and instead only managing to give the entire construction a palpable feeling of death and malaise.
    It is strangely weightless.

    "It has been splashed by 4,219 droplets of blood." - The counter while charging, it's full at 5,000.

    "It is ready to be planted at its master's grave." - When fully charged.


    You firmly plant an ur'Stone of Cankermore in the ground, preparing your own grave. - Plant stone message (how optimistic!)

    You carefully dig up your grave, uprooting an ur'Stone of Cankermore from the ground so you can die another day. - Uproot message.


    And when you use it (after decapitating myself this time) it's an instant revival (no delay) with this message:

    "You feel an ur'Stone of Cankermore drawing you lifeless body through the aether until you rest in your pre-determined grave. As the blood of your foes soaks through the ground, you feel your flesh re-knit itself and your muscles plump out until you have the strength to claw your way through the dirt and rise anew."

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tn6gcTOX6-0 instantly popped into my head when I read that.

    It charges really fast too, about 15 minutes of Astral or Zombies will fill that up.

    A scaffolding of gleaming metal, this amplifier is a work of both function and design. 
    Crystals glitter with mathematical precision from right-angled embrasures: small sparks 
    of energy leap between, hinting at unseen potential within the device. Tiny equations 
    are imprinted into the metal alongside long, thin grooves running the length of the 
    curving amplifier.
    It is strangely weightless.
    It bears the distinctive mark of Commander Shuyin.

    Muttering words of power, you trace a cobalt blue pentagram in the air that remains 
    hovering before you, protecting against assault.

    Arkellius's attack rebounds off your magical shield.
    A flash of cold cobalt light erupts from the back of your shield, bathing you in 
    invigorating energy.

    It needs to be charged.

    That's it. Might not be plantable in manses, I'll have to test it.

    Hmm. If it is plantable in a manse I will have to make a little room specifically designed for rebirthing into. That would be pretty cool.

    Especially if it is stocked with moist towelettes and a nice pitcher of ice water.

    Crafted from pure gold, this ring is a wide, unbroken band etched with words in Ae bespeaking promises forged and unbroken, each letter of the elegant script suffused with a softly glowing, rose-hued light. A single translucent gem sits upon the ring's apex, surrounded by a circle of elaborate silver filigree. The crystal itself emits a soft and steady glow that bathes its immediate surroundings in soothing pink tones.

    What exactly is 'Ae', anyone? *stare promise ring*

    Polished bronze comprises the body of these binoculars, forming two slim, hollow cylinders dyed a vibrant carnelian hue. The four ends are capped with unpainted bronze set with glass lenses: two eyepieces for looking through and two larger objective lenses. The surfaces of the latter swirl with tiny glowing motes, an indication of latent magic. Two gracefully arching strips of metal bridge these cylinders to a shorter, thinner central rod, forming a hinge that allows easy folding and unfolding of the device. Attached to the right side close to the eyepiece is a solid metal handle wrapped in pliable black leather.

    It's the language used by the Third and Fifth Circle for their manipulation of reality. There's a book in the World Library (in the room with Weeky) on Ae I believe.

    Edit: The book is called "Ae for the intellectually impaired".

    Finally caught the missus around, and then couldn't figure out how to split the promise ring with her. Clearly PROMISE would make too much sense to use, but heeeeey it worked!

    Promise with no other input:
    Who do you want to form an everlasting promise with?
    Syntax: PROMISE <person> <promise>.

    Promise success:
    You look Shiawase in the eyes and hold a promise ring before you. Speaking slowly and clearly, you promise, "[....]" As you finish speaking, the ring begins to glow and the ghost of a duplicate appears in Shiawase's hands. A barely-visible shaft of energy joins the two rings together and you know that forever shall you be bound by the oath you have made today.

    Trying to Promise again:
    You have already promised your ring to someone!
