Just a reminder: I'm still looking for the small red and/or white boxes from Droughtman's Maze.
Ok, so you heard about these nifty shifting flower charms in the empath only caravan. If you want to bug me about them, READ THIS FIRST.
Here's the scoop(or what I know of it and others have informed me):
a diminutive flower charm crudely carved from white birch(60 plat lirum)
a diminutive flower charm delicately carved from silver maplewood(115 plat lirum)
a diminutive flower charm expertly whittled from polished oak(85 plat lirum)
Rub to activate. They do NOT bond.
Wear. They will shatter and bloom, and the blossom will wilt and re-bloom as a different flower/color periodically. BE PATIENT. Examples of messaging are below.
Yes, you can remove the flower and rewear the charm to change it. It eats the charge faster.
They are pin-worn.
Only one can be worn at a time.
Barbarians CAN wear them. Yes, I tested.
They will pull you out of hiding when they wilt and re-bloom. They do not pull you out of Blend.
Apparently they need to be taken off and re-worn after logging off in order to start it blooming again. This is a bug and is being worked on.
Some flowers have scents, some do not. I'll be listing which do, and what, as I find out.
From what I've seen, particular charms seem to have a tendency towards certain blossom types or color schemes, but that's just my thoughts on the matter.
When they die, they revert to their charm form until they're recharged. They don't need to be rubbed again to reactivate.
To charge them, the syntax is: charge [my] charm #
A full charm will refuse any additional mana. I doubt it's possible to blow one up by overcharging.
The differences between the charms are as follows:
I have not yet looked into color schemes, speed in shifting, or more than estimates in how much power each of them holds.
Flower types include, but are not necessarily limited to:
Colors include, but are not necessarily limited to:
As you prepare to don the flower charm you notice a dark smudge marring one of its petals. Perhaps you should RUB it away.
rub my charm
Your flower charm glows faintly and then returns to normal.
wear my charm
Your flower charm grows warm for a moment.
You put on a diminutive flower charm delicately carved from silver maplewood.
Your flower charm shatters suddenly and is replaced by a tiny bud that slowly begins to bloom. It ripples with a breathtaking kaleidoscope of colors before finally transforming into a drooping midnight glory shaded the dark red of fresh spilt blood.
[Any time hereafter if you rub it, you get:]
rub [flower type]
It isn't a rabbit's foot, once was enough!
gaze [flower type] - for empaths:
As you gaze intently at your [flower type] it begins to ripple, almost as if sensing your attention.
Your [flower type] withers like burning parchment, its petals curling into thin blackened spirals before disintegrating into ash. A tiny bud appears in its place and slowly begins to bloom, rippling with a breathtaking kaleidoscope of colors before finally transforming into a burnt umber iris with a radiant golden center.
remove [flower type]:
The [flower type] flickers a moment before reverting to its natural form.
You take off a diminutive flower charm delicately carved from silver maplewood.
charge charm #:
You harness a measure of energy and attempt to channel it into your flower charm.
Waves of pale blue-white light envelope your flower charm as it absorbs the energy. After a moment it returns to normal.
charge charm #(full):
You attempt to charge the flower charm, but the energy dissipates, leading you to believe it is already fully charged.
