Subj: Boggle at My Goggle...promo
It's time for Promotions! EVERYONE LOVES PROMOTIONS! Even when Tiur kinda messes them up to suit His own
Details will follow the brief notes of what the sale focuses on:
Lesson sale! Check the website for packages of lessons you may buy directly. Go learn a new class!
Cryptic Chests! Everyone loves those. New items detailed below. The loot tables hav been significantly redone
in order to fit in something fun... salvage! While the Tiered Promo is not what we're 'officially' working on,
this is a much requested promo, so we made it work.
For those not in the know, Salvage lets you visit Qeddwyn and EXCHANGE for Antiquated Artifacts, including the
Gauntlets, Riding Crop, and Ring. Salvage bound to you can be exchanged for level 1 of the artifact, but after
that initial level any salvage works. So trading is allowed!
But it would be boring to ONLY put in salvage, so here, have a new Antiquated Artifact.
Venantium Clockwork Goggles
This Antiquated Artifact replicates the function of your standard goggles for seeing mists, but also includes
a large number of lenses designed to boost your visual acuity. From new vision skills to improved old vision
skills, to strange things I hid and won't tell you about! GOGGLE MODEL will tell you the interesing things
about your particular goggles. Defenses are turned off or on with GOGGLE TOGGLE .
Level 1: HEATSIGHT and NIGHTSIGHT - Sure, they kinda do the same thing... but this is both! And without
Level 2: MINDSEYE and THIRDEYE - Never buy enchantments or tattoos for those things again! And without mana/eq
Level 3: Your awareness is increased. RITES/VIBES/SECRETS/TRAPS/FORTS ... none of these take balance or
equilibrium for you.
Level 4: AUDITSIGHT . Now you can see someone else's Audit and pick your damage accordingly.
Level 5: OVERWATCH. This is like Treewatch and Skywatch combined, but it doesn't have a mana or willpower
Level 6: Weatherbane: It's like you have goggles of whitesight, but it also sees through fog!
Level 7: Hypersight becomes less mana intensive, and Vigilance has its efficacy increased. Never be tricked
Level 8: Access to INSIGHT. Your goggles enhance your vision so well, you can literally see thoughts!
Level 9: LIFEVISION. See all that shows signs of life, even undead.
Level 10: PHASESENSE - Now the Syssin can hate Me, this will let you attempt to PHASESENSE and find
those sneaky phased types.
Level 11: Deathsight messages come with information on the room where the person died.
Level 12: OBSERVE without eq/mana!
Level 13: GOGGLE SCAN - Look at someone's SCORE! Mock them for not finishing that last 5% on their
Level 14: SHAREDSIGHT - Share your improved sight with allies in the room. Has a mana drain.
Level 15: LEYLINES will have improved range
Level 16: FISHSIGHT - Learn all about those fishies. How many, what those elusive 'unknown' types are, even
what you have on the line.
Level 17: Access to the LIPREADING defense. Now you know what they're saying about you. Because they are
talking about you, you know.
Level 18: GOGGLE SEEK : Find out where they are, how they're doing, and who they're with.
Level 19: Focisight - GOGGLE ATTUNE, and now you will see exactly where Foci appear in that area, no matter
where you are.
Level 20: DIVINESIGHT - If it's there, you can see it. (planes, continents, chameleon) And if you don't want
to see it, you see through it (doors, walls, other people trying to FARSEE/SEEK you). And it might do other
odd things. We Divine see all, you know.
Special: At level 4, you unlock the ability to modify the Goggles description and name into an alternate
version. Every 4 levels after that unlocks another 'skin'. In order, goggles, circlet, eyeball (single
eyesocket wearloc), thirdeye (new wear loc), cuff (earcuff).
a fuzzy penguin chick (avian)
a brightly plumed peacock (avian)
an iron clawed crab (aquatic)
an iridescent isopod (aquatic)
a miniaturized twister (elemental)
a restless spectre (spirit)
an armored viper (reptile)
a large furry moth (insect)
*NOTE: I decided on a method for rarity. Largely it depends on how many are already out there. The first
person to get a minipet will always get a 6*. After that, there are odds for 5*/6*, and they steadily fall as
more and more exist. What does this mean? Nothing, it's meaningLESS.
*NOTE: I realize that by prioritizing the salvage, the relic list is lacking in new items. Sorry! Because the
refresh takes place roughly around Townhall Time, I will not promise a refresh. If it's important, go to the
forums and get it on the agenda.
And that's that! I apologize for the delay, but there was a bit of a difficulty with the chest loot tables and
salvage. Keep in mind that typically salvage is 'worth' 100cr, and you'll get an idea of the droprate in
chests. Also, I took out the venom rag. NO VENOM RAGS.
PS: For those of you worried by the concept of reworked loot tables on the chests: Mostly, I did this by
taking things out. You will not see shapeshifter pelts, Atav Charms, or Hoods of Elusion. Chances for credits
upped, but chances for exp chalices, arti vials, and general artifacts are a bit lower... because salvage IS
an artifact. Technically chests are increased in overall credit value for this promo.

I did not explain well!
Salvage, specifically "antiquated artifact salvage" has a chance to appear within a cryptic chest, much like
any other prize. This specific item is taken to Qeddwyn, who can exchange it. The syntaxes are in HELP
This may be done at any time. You can hold on to your salvage as long as you like. You can sell it, you can
buy it! Hoard it away if you hate the current Antiquated Artifact. Do not eat it. The Pools are not
responsible for the results of eating ancient Ankyrean artifacts.
Sorry for the misunderstanding!
