    Henphelia was like no other chicken. She was long of leg, round of bottom, and had the most unruly of hair. Yes, hair. Now I know that it sounds strange that a hen would have hair, but she had long locks that flowed down her back. She never really knew what to do with them.

    Until she went to market one day and bought a feather. Upon wearing the feather, her hair was transformed and she preened in front of the other hens in the hen house.

    You gingerly clip the feather into your hair and it quickly gets hidden in your tresses.

    You nimbly weave your waist length hair into a multitude of thin herringbone braids that hug your skull.

    She has waist length, straight golden blonde hair separated into a multitude of thin herringbone braids that hug the skull and are woven with thin beads and dusky grey pigeon feathers.

    I wonder what Henphelia will do in market tomorrow…

    Henphelia, the odd hen, was pretty happy with how her hair had turned out, but when she went to the Market a second time…

    “Hey, Henphia,” a funny looking girl called out to her. “I can make that even better…”

    Henphelia was most pleased with the results.

    Drawing your bangs back from your face, you carefully weave them into a five-plait braid and then pinch the ends together with a bit of twine and twin dusky grey pigeon retrices.
    She has waist length, straight golden blonde hair with her bangs gathered to the right temple and woven into a single five-plait braid adorned with twin dusky grey pigeon retrices.

    Howdy folks!

    Since I’ve been gone for a while, I will have a lot to tease about! Here’s something for those of you that like footwraps and handwraps.

    glance
    You glance down to see a tight ball of soft grey linen in your right hand and nothing in your left hand.
    inspect my linen
    You carefully inspect your soft grey linen.
    After a careful inspection, you determine that a tight ball of soft grey linen are suitable for use in unarmed combat.

    You determine that you could wear the linen on your feet. The linen appears to serve some purpose.

    It looks like this item has been mainly crafted out of cloth.

    Well, how does that work?

    Like this:

    wear my linen
    Holding the end of the soft grey linen against your ankle bone, you begin to gently wrap it around first the ankle, then across the top and around the arch of your foot. You point your toes, testing the tightness of your wrapping job and, satisfied, repeat the process with the left foot so that both feet are adorned in newly made grey linen footwraps.

    That crazy hen is at it again! When she got to the market, another merchant saw her and taught her a new trick with her feather.

    Now, she’s so excited and shows off for all the other hens.

    Using three fingers, you gently rake your hair away from your face and bind it in place with thin dusky grey combs that are decorated with pigeon pennae.

    She has waist length, straight golden blonde hair drawn away from the face with thin dusky grey combs that are decorated with pigeon pennae.

    And now for the hand:

    inspect my suede
    You carefully inspect your vivid red suede.

    After a careful inspection you determine that a tight ball of vivid red suede is suitable for use in unarmed combat.

    You determine that you could wear the suede on your hands. The suede appears to serve some purpose.

    It looks like this item has been mainly crafted out of leather.

    wear my suede
    Cupping the end of the vivid red suede in your right hand, you gently wrap it around your palm and carefully weave it between your fingers. Once done, you flex your fingers to test the fit, and then repeat the process on the left so that both hands are adorned in newly made zorchar-beaded handwraps.

    Big thank you to GM Vanah who was able to fix that oddity with inspect.(Cause she’s the best!)

    I’m not gonna lie… I’m no Thandiwe. (Though she is my good pal and a joy with whom to work!) So instead of writing a beautiful story like she did, I’ll just lay out a couple OOC shop teasers:

    1. Long ago, someone asked for a nice selection of holy symbols. You might find a few of those with tiny pockets for storing your ritual stuff in one shop. And they might be the cutest ever (d’awww). And you might find Arkati candles there, too, to help with your communing and other mood setting needs. And in that same shop, you might find sticks for painting deity symbols on faces for that extra mmph. This is pure conjecture, of course. ;)

    2. You might find an interesting ware for sale in another shop that can be unlocked for free purely because I saw you engaging in the storyline and roleplaying. Yes, roleplaying! No, nothing mechanical here. Just fluff for fun. Yes, I’m watching for solid roleplay as EG goes live.

    Much more to come. See you there.

    Henphelia is at it, again. Wandering from her Chicken Coup, she’s managed to make her way to market for the fourth time and she is strutting her stuff.

    A man in an alley says, “Hey, Henphelia, I may appear to be a BLIND MAN but I can tell you right now, I can fix your hair feather to be even fancier.”

    Clucking away, she went into the alley. When she came out…

    Starting at your temple and working your way backwards along your scalp, you deftly weave your hair into dozens of incredibly thin braids. Here and there along the various lengths, you add dusky grey beads and pigeon plumules.

    She has waist length, straight golden blonde hair woven into a riotous mass of incredibly thin braids that are sporadically peppered with dusky grey beads and pigeon plumules.

    Aunt Dipideedoo gazed longingly into her mirror, a fretful look upon her face. She pulled her hair back from her temples and turned her head from side to side in an attempt to see her hairstyle from all angles. “Nope, that won’t do at all.” She dropped her arms to her side and sighed heavily. “Oh,” she said, “maybe it was like this!” She tucked her hair behind her ears and winked at her reflection. She shook her head. “Nope, that wasn’t it, either. I wish I could remember how I had done my hair for that Royal Ball I attended in Ta’Illistim many moons ago!” Defeated, she dropped her mirror into her lap with a pout.

    She turned the mirror over a few times, and suddenly, an image appeared in its reflection. With trepidation, she lowered her gaze to see the materializing image. She gasped when she saw the perfect reflection of her from that wonderful evening! “How the… what the… oh my! That’s it! That’s really it!”

    With a deep breath, she rubbed the mirror in her hands and her hair stood on end, as if charged with static! As she gazed back at her reflection, her hair was perfectly coifed, just as it had been for her special night out.

    Henphelia liked to press her luck and so she went to market a fifth time. She’d bought the hair feather the first time, and then had it worked on three more times. Could there be a fourth time for her?

    Strutting along, her hair loose to see if any noticed, a playful young boy approached her.

    “Oh, Henphelia,” he said, “You should push that hair away from your face.”

    He gently pushed her hair back.

    Resting your thin dusky grey headband in the space between your temple and the tops of your ears, you push the piece further up on your head and trap your hair in place.

    She has waist length, straight golden blonde hair pulled back from the face by a thin dusky grey headband adorned with decorative pigeon pennae.

    After years of her extensive research in sylvan gemstone lore, Nimaya has created a new apparatus for modifying the appearance of the jewels, gems, stones, and shells that are so dearly revered by her people. The lapidary boxes provide the user with more than one shape, texture, cut, or lustre that can be applied to gems. The revolving center of the box is turned to choose which finish will be applied to the stone inside. These boxes can be further customized in a variety of different ways.

    Nimaya taps an iridescent pearl, which is in her left hand.

    Nimaya taps a greyed pumpkin ash box shot with veins of smoky moss agate, which is in her right hand.

    Nimaya flips open a sleek latch on her pumpkin ash box with a practiced hand, revealing a narrow chamber that descends through the heart of the vessel to a tapered outlet.

    Nimaya pops an iridescent pearl into her pumpkin ash box, and it swiftly clatters down a small chute, coming to rest with a soft plink!

    Nimaya carefully eyes her pumpkin ash box and turns its revolving center.

    Nimaya presses down firmly on a sleek latch crowning her pumpkin ash box, driving it down through the center of her vessel. An eruption of metallic slicing emanates from inside her box’s chamber, yielding to a few discordantly staggered crackles, and a tinny clink. After a moment, a greyed pumpkin ash box shot with veins of smoky moss agate continues rolling through a narrow chute, tumbling out of a tapered outlet directly into her palm.

    Now that I have your attention…

    There will be at least one scrying shop at Ebon Gate this year and I’ve created a brand new scrying device for it.

    It is based on the Apdo Gno Burzka’ask, which is a krolvin seer that uses Haruspex as a divination method.

    Here is a sample of it:

    The black rolton collapses to the ground, emits a final bleat, and dies.

    You glance down to see a femur-hilted obsidian zirah bouk in your right hand and nothing in your left hand.

    Laying your hands upon the soft expanse of the rolton’s stomach, you make a deep cut in the flesh with your zirah bouk. Innards begin to spill upon the ground, and you fish around in them for a moment before you prize free a waxy fat-saturated stomach.

    You glance down to see a femur-hilted obsidian zirah bouk in your right hand and a waxy fat-saturated stomach in your left hand.

    You analyze your fat-saturated stomach and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

    A waxy fat-saturated stomach is created by using the blade of an Apdo Gno Burzka’ask on a dead creature. It can be turned up to three times to discern various features about the type of organ it is, and those can be used to predict the future. Once it has been turned three times, it will be destroyed.

    A waxy fat-saturated stomach can not be altered, sold, or eaten. It must be used while fresh from the kill as it will rot.

    You analyze your obsidian zirah bouk and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

    This is the blade of an Apdo Gno Burzka’ask, which is a Krolvin seer. It will gut an animal, and only an animal, to steal its organs. You can do this by typing POINT zirah bouk at {animal}. It is your task to divine the future from those organs.

    This particular zirah bouk is at the off-the-shelf tiering and can be unlocked once, and it traps for point, rub, and exhale.

    It has a chance to create one of four different types of organs.

    You may alter this zirah bouk freely, but please try to keep its material as either glass, obsidian, or metal. It should only ever be a small knife or dagger, and it can never have any kind of special flares, weighting, or enhancive abilities.

    Enjoy!

    [Feywrot Mire, Western Walkway]

    The air is hazy with twining plumes of smoke, as breezes from the western swamplands breathe life into pockets of smoldering ash, reigniting what little is left to burn in the area. Black water covers half of the planking where the charred supports have partly collapsed into the surrounding swamp. You also see a pile of burnt wood.

    look wood:

    Judging from the one wheel lying on its side nearby, and the charred remnants of one long carved wooden handle, the scattered pile of wood and ash appears to be the burnt vestige of a merchant’s cart. Tiny animal figurines, perched in long abandoned pots, are beyond recognition with their little faces scorched off.

    The poor little gnome is heartbroken, so many fine carvings reduced to ash. Whatever shall he do? Guess there’s nothing left but to start anew. Stop by Binklar’s new shop on … wherever the heck this new festival place is…

    Blank imbeddibles for all of your imbeddible spell needs. With a merchant pass, he’ll imbed up to 3 items per person per day with the spiritual or arcane magics from his shop lists. Please help the little man recoup his losses, or just stop by and say “Hi!”

    Quote from GM Thandiwe:

    I’m glad you asked about tiers…

    Every blade that is off the shelf can be unlocked one time. There is a special, raffle quality tier on the blade that does more. It can only be found in jackpot prizes and is usually on a completely altered blade.

    That being said, here’s a breakdown for you:

    Of-the-shelf : 4 organ types & 3 verbs
    Tier 1 : 6 organ types & 5 verbs
    Raffle Tier: 8 organ types & 7 verbs

    Here’s an example of using the organ:

    turn my stomach
    ou turn the stomach over in your hands, examining it in minute detail. As your eyes rove over it, you notice that the greater curve of stomach is pockmarked with puckered flesh.
    G>turn my stomach
    You turn the stomach over in your hands, examining it in minute detail. As your eyes rove over it, you notice pockets of fatty membranes fused to the exterior wall.
    turn my stomach
    You turn the stomach over in your hands, examining it in minute detail. As your eyes rove over it, you notice a snakeskin-like pattern that trails across the wall that is interrupted by nodules of yellowish fat.

    Sensing that you have gleaned all you can from the stomach, you feel it begin to transform under your touch. The flesh loses its elasticity and suddenly turns brittle. Within seconds it is nothing more than sanguine ash that sifts through your fingers.

She hit the sea hard, arms and legs flailing wildly to scramble her way up from the depths. Once the waters around her calmed, she reluctantly opened her eyes and gasped! “Ohhh…look at this!

    Patches of green-blue algae float past; chunks of shimmering silver flicker in her periphery; large sandbars stretch as far as she can see. “This is extraordinary!

    I hope so, because I am rolling out the carpet for dagger users at this year’s Ebon Gate.

    Up for auction:

    • Dagger weighting! As much as you can afford in one service. (The price will follow the new weighting system, so it can get pricey). One lucky winner!
    • Greater bubble flares! One lucky winner!

    Other dagger-related services you can win…

    • Ten moderately lucky winners will be able to enchant one of the daggers for sale in my shop to 5x. Some fun, naturally flaring materials!
    • One very lucky winner will be able to enchant one to 8x!
    • +10 stamina recovery enhancive to any dagger! (As long as it can accept it.) Not just my store daggers!
    • Common flares for your daggers, 5 winners!

    Silver charges apply but they won’t break the bank.

    Don’t care about daggers??

    Well… you’ll find some very neat arm and leg greaves for sale in my shop.

    What do they do?

    They have secret compartments to hold your daggers!

    Do you still not care about daggers?

    How about this then:

    • Spike adding & removing
    • Common & uncommon flares for your armor accessories
    • +10 Constitution bonus to any arm greaves for one lucky winner! This will be raffled and oh yes you will want to win it!

    I’ll also be turning your arm and leg greaves into my sneaky neat ones that let you hide daggers. Limit of 20 lucky winners.

    If you play some games on the grounds, you may luck into winning some special armor accessories, which can be made even more special with these services and wins.

    Rogues, walk away with a pair of flaring spiked leg greaves that hold a secret dagger. Or just get a secret compartment added to your arm greaves to hold your skinning knife. Fun for all! Especially rogues!

    An ancient terror has been exhumed from its resting place beneath the Abandoned Waters, and it has made its way to the shores of Elanthia.

    Proceed with caution.

    (You may find an unusual item in treasure chests across Elanthia.)

    Funny how critters always find these strange things and decide to put them in locked boxes and carry them around.

    Stop trying to figure out Elanthia’s greatest mystery.



  • @mogonis It’s totally safe from theft in OTF that way.

    I found one in Plat - it was a chunk of seaweed. You have to OPEN it. Not sure if what is inside is different each time, though, as I’ve only found the one so far.


  • Tart Lovers Anonymous

    @livderaderalleur And what was in yours?


  • Platinum

    @Sabotage
    It was a scripted seed pod. Tapped it and some eels flew out and disappeared. There was another verb noted in the ANALYZE (‘EAT’) but the pod disappeared after ‘TAP’, so I didn’t get a chance to see what that did.

    This was posted on the Officials (But not by a GM):

    In the brass coffer:
    Special [1]: a silver-veined strand of slick seaweed

    Something in the coiled knots of the aquatic plant make you think that this could be debris that has somehow made its way out of Caligos Isle and into your care. You remove a silver-veined strand of slick seaweed from in a battered brass coffer.

    Thin and ropey, the stand of seaweed is slippery and bears a strange indigo cast that darkens to forest green at the center. Spear-shaped leaves decorate the edges as do tiny seedpods that glisten with a watery slickness. An odd pattern of silver veining trickles through the plant. It appears as though you could OPEN the aquatic vegetation.

    open seaweed
    You gingerly at first, and then with more ferocity as you continue, pull on the tangled coils of the seaweed. Suddenly transforming into an ethereal mist of indigo laced with silver, the seaweed falls away from your hands and leaves something behind.

    You swap your glossy indigo seedpod from your left to your right hand.

    Plump and round, the seedpod is indigo in hue and darkens to ebon at the center. The flimsy seam is limned with a silvery sheen.

    You analyze your glossy indigo seedpod and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

    You look over a silver-seamed glossy indigo seedpod and understand instantly that it can not be altered in any way, shape, or form. With that understanding comes the knowledge that you can TAP, SMELL, and EAT it.

    As you give a silver-seamed glossy indigo seedpod a last look, you feel as though someone is analyzing you back. A voice floats around your ears, “Caligos Isle is where He awaits you. Come. Come to His Salvation.” Slowly, both the feeling and the voice fade away.

    You get no sense of whether or not the seedpod may be further lightened.

    tap seed
    As you tap the edges of the seedpod, it bursts in your hand, and a wild spray of silver mist floods the area. Slowly, the image of an island wreathed in mist forms, and you see a ship sailing towards its shores. Waves crest and crash against the rocky shores, though darkness and gloom prevent a closer look at the land. Eventually, the image fades but leaves behind the acrid scent of the sea.



  • As you give a silver-seamed glossy indigo seedpod a last look, you feel as though someone is analyzing you back. A voice floats around your ears, “Find Junderthal, he knows the way!” Slowly, both the feeling and the voice fade away.

    analyze trinket
    You analyze your shimmering trinket and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions.

    The creator has also provided the following information:

    The trinket is a Shimmer Trinket, which will save and project an aura that copies the appearance of other items you are wearing. Just wear whatever items you want in whatever order you desire, then ATTEND the trinket. Once worn, it will only display those items while concealing all others. You may also CLEAN it to remove the previously stored appearance.

    General availability at the next Duskruin, but one will be raffled at Ebon Gate.

  • Notes from Estild from Discord in regards to Shimmer Trinkets
    https://discord.gg/qYnKfpD

    • pinworn, non-functional
    • retains look after removing “trinket”
    • Can give trinket to others and retains the existing “look”
    • Can use it to appear naked if you wish.
    • Buy miltiple and create sets (wedding, costume balls, streaking, etc)
    • Do not have to continue wearing items that were saved for the look once saved
    • Can only detect if using trinket if using Stormfront FE and attempt to click inventory link when looking at someone as will return no PnC menu on click.
    • General availability at DR, pricing not dirt cheap, but under 10k scrip
    • Will have Aqua-Barbie Girl midi file integrated in FE to play automatically when worn (just kidding)


  • If these are off the shelf… I might just kiss Estild.



  • Sounds like they will be as it’s “general availability”.

    He didn’t respond though to whether they are tier/locked similar to the DragonRealms version these were copied from. Their versions have 4 tiers:

    • Tier 1: 8 items
    • Tier 2: 10 items
    • Tier 3: 12 items
    • Tier 4: 15 items

    Hopefully ours is unlimited and no tiers. We can hope and dream.
