    Glow
    * 4x a glowing firefly larvae

    - You can GLOWON to suffuse your body with a gentle light, appending a coloured line to
    your description.
    - You can FLASH to reveal any hidden people (SEARCH substitute).
    - GLOWOFF to turn it off again.


    i wanna know if there's a canonical explanation for how relics work (i'll probably disregard it, but i still wanna KNOW). like, do we just gather up a bunch of firefly larvae and go, "Huh, what if I smash these together and rub the resulting goop all over myself?" are we surprised to be bioluminescent? to suddenly grow shark teeth (and jaw strength) that can obliterate almost any object? what on EARTH is going on with us???
    (Congregation): Iosyne says, "I made a cup."

    Horkval are a feature...

    I use this relic differently.

    Since there was no lore tied to them I decided to make my own and since it's part of her background story I usually share why she glows through RP.

    I feel like if something isn't explained it leaves room for creativity to flow.

  • I got that relic specifically because of the description line because Rhine does, in fact, glow.

    I knew SEARCHNEWS and HELPSEARCH were a thing...

    TIL that SEARCHLOG (org) (search term) is a got-danged thing too.

    Today I learned that the game no longer lets you use curatives if you're off cure balance, and that we haven't had to code timers into our enemy aff trackers for a long time. 

    I'm kicking myself.

    TIL about HELP VAULTS... and the fact that I've got 3 free-ish slots to store things against decay at the bank. At a 100 gp cost per IRL day.

  • AxiusAxius where I am
    Adding another fun fact I learned.

    Starting with some background starting points:

    The letter satchel: It can be used to hold 16 items. I think.

    The artifact pack, found with AP INFO 13, is an artifact power you can add to a container.

    My letter satchel, my only backpack, now augmented with the power of an artefact backpack, now holds 100 items. Maybe 116, if the original storage is intact.


    Additional notation. AP INFO 433: Adds 50 slots to what you can store.... and multiple runes can be applied per item.


    Side note:

    YES. AXIUS LEGIT USES HIS/HER LETTER SATCHEL AS THEIR MAIN STORAGE-PACK. YES. THIS MAKES IT WEIRD FOR LETTERS. I MANAGE TO GET AROUND IT BY DOING GET LETTER# FROM SATCHEL. THERE, JUST FIXED YOUR 'BUT YOU CAN'T STORE LETTERS IN IT' PROBLEM.

  • That there is a Peers list! Any other cool lists I'm missing?

    (Illuminai): Saltz says, "Moxie is just doing the Moxie thing to do, often misinterpreted."

    (Tells): Sir Iames Gallant, the Executioner tells you, "The one Illuminai beyond prayer, I swear."

    Valingar: "How could a daughter of me, the most noble man in the south, be so heartless?"

    (Tells): Haven Locke, Illuminai Khimaira tells you, "Be that as it may, I've also seen the strength in you. You can take care of yourself."

    @Moxie

    MAGICLIST - magic items by enchantment with decay, charges, ect. ect.
    VIALLIST - Vials, their contents, sips left, decay rate
    BANDAGELIST - same as vials, but with bandages
    KEYLIST - ALL your keys. Required if you have a keyring, and if you have keys, you might best keep a keyring.

    uhh... let's see.. any others...

    I remember something about a DECAYLIST at one point, but I'm not sure if that's the command.. It shows your soon to decay things, if I recall correctly.

    7.9 Key Commands

    COMMANDS
    --------

    These will only work in a house or shop owned by you. If it is a shop
    and you cannot use the command, contact your Chancellor, otherwise
    contact your Patron.

    Probing a key will show what it unlocks.

    REQUEST LOCK
    - With 30000 gold in hand, you may request a lock from any of the
    locksmiths above. The lock will come with a key made to unlock it.

    KEYS (direction/replica)
    - Checks which keys open the lock



    You can also add the lock that you receive from the above command to things like a chest or display case and lock them with a key.

    I learned it a few days ago. But you guys can do SPIN WHEEL wherever to know if you're ready to spin or not, or if you've already spun.

    If you're still waiting for that hour to get the free spin, you get the prompt saying "You still need X minutes before you can spin"

    If your free spin is available, it just says "hey, there's no wheel here!"

    If you've already spun, it says "The wheel resists your hand."

    Could also check DEF. First def is a debuff stating you can't spin again if you already have.

  • I am necro'ing this thread to bring you a command I never knew existed!

    STONECLOTHSWORD

    You challenge those around you to settle things with a game of stone-cloth-sword.
    You can PICK from STONE, CLOTH, or SWORD to try and win.

    You select stone for the throw down.

    Three...

    Two...

    One...

    THROW!!
    Benedicto throws out his open hand for cloth!
    You sling out your fist for stone!

    "Bah!" you retort disgustedly.

    Benedicto throws up his hands and cheers wildly!
