Subj: The Service Schedule
This is the tentative schedule. There are a few things that aren’t on this list that need some final notes before they can be added. I don’t see them not being added, but it is a possibility. Those things will be added to Friday after midnight (EDT).

Friday and Saturday are MAJOR services only. Each win is per account. You will be able to win multiple MAJOR services with a very steep silver surcharge. That surcharge grows VERY rapidly. Passing items or leaving the area after you are selected will result in either a forfeiting of your win or the same surcharge listed for multiple wins.

Selection methods will be up to the merchant, but will likely be something quick like a spinner, list, or raffle. Any fees associated with the selection process do not count toward the fees of the service. The cost of services will be determined by the service you are receiving and the item properties you already have, if applicable. Item restrictions may apply on some scripted items. If you can get it at Duskruin, you can get it here.

Quantity of services will be explained at the time of the service. The total quantity of the schedule for MAJOR services is over 350.

Spell Knowledge Enhancive (can’t have other enhancives)

Does this mean your character or account cannot already have an enhancive or that the item you place it on can’t already have other enhancives?

Also, what spells are possible please?

What is a partial enchant? Is it taking an enchant not evenly divisible by 5 to the next enchant evenly divisible by 5 (e.g., +18 to +20)? Are there situations when a partial enchant is preferable to a full enchant?

Yes, it’s taking a +2/+3 to the next standard enchant divisible by 5. No, there is not a situation where a partial enchant is better.

This is mostly ideal for off-enchant metals/woods, like imflass, wyrwood, glowbark, fireleaf, eahnor, vaalorn, faenor, etc etc etc.

Subj: Re: The Service Schedule
Putting together everything I’m wondering (…for now) that I haven’t seen others ask yet:

1 – Which spells are options for X/day magic items?
2 – Which of the following are player enchantable (assuming the item is otherwise plain): weapons with creature bane, weapons with snake flares, Ironwright weapons?
3 – Do body features have the same guidelines as long descriptions?
4 – How much does the weight reducing service, well, reduce?
5 – Which rare flares are options?

I can safely say creature banes are NOT PC enchantable (even says so on the wiki page)

Also, any chance glamour tattoos will be offered as a MINOR service?

Thanks! For some reason I thought to look at the 925 page for information, but not the bane weapon page…

At least that’s one fewer thing I need to worry about entering. Back to planning.

To be fair, they did announce the dates quite awhile ago for prime, if I am not mistaken it was back in the beginning of april? maybe end of March?

The deets were a bit long in coming, I’ll agree there.

I checked back and the tentative dates were announced last month (post #55 or 65).

I didn’t check when they became final but alot of discussion happens on Discord too now so might have missed that (I went off the wiki page for my travel plans).

>>is custom familiar a possibility under customizations?

Yes.

Not sure, I’ll find out how custom is custom.

>>So just to clarify for me, if i win and someone passes me the item we both get dinged and both charged a surgcharge?

Yes. Or disqualified entirely from CCF.

>>Is there a limit to the fusion slot increase?

I believe the system can only go to 10, I don’t think anyone is close to this.

>>Does this mean your character or account cannot already have an enhancive or that the item you place it on can’t already have other enhancives?

The item.

>>Also, what spells are possible please?

Spell lists will be available closer to the event.

>>Luxie and her 15million silvers want to know if there is any hope of being able to afford anything.

If you have top end items and expect to get work, probably not. If you are in the middle of the road, definitely.

>>Also … will there be a way to know how much the service is going to cost BEFORE we place ourselves in line to be selected?

All items will vary in ways, so no, there isn’t really a way to do that.

>>Ooh, what kind of weapons are we looking at here? Will the mythical underwater coraesine katana make an appearance?

It’s just that you don’t supply an item. Katanas, naginatas, and claidhmores usually are restricted here.

>>No greater flares?

Not for this.

>>will payment by another character be allowed? or passing of silvers?

No.

>>>1:00 PM Body Features

>>this is major?

Yes, until this event, it was a Summit Academy only thing via premade selections.

>>>>What is a partial enchant? Is it taking an enchant not evenly divisible by 5 to the next enchant evenly divisible by 5 (e.g., +18 to +20)? Are there situations when a partial enchant is preferable to a full enchant?

>>Yes, it’s taking a +2/+3 to the next standard enchant divisible by 5. No, there is not a situation where a partial enchant is better.

Omrii has you covered.

>>1 – Which spells are options for X/day magic items?

Will be listed closer to the event.

>>2 – Which of the following are player enchantable (assuming the item is otherwise plain): weapons with creature bane, weapons with snake flares, Ironwright weapons?

No, likely very hard, not sure (script isn’t very telling).

>>3 – Do body features have the same guidelines as long descriptions?

No. ALTER 27

>>4 – How much does the weight reducing service, well, reduce?

5%

>>5 – Which rare flares are options?

Same offered at Duskruin. Unbalance, Grapple, Puncture, Slash, and Crush. No, they aren’t the same as mechanical flares.

>>Just checking but with the W/P/S changes will Permablessing be allowed for weighted weapons without flares?

Should be.

>>Also, any chance glamour tattoos will be offered as a MINOR service?

Heh, no. Glamour tattoos require us to code your specific look into the game permanently. This service is likely more intensive to perform than anything on the current list.

>>What is the deal with the rush on this and the short notice? I bet I can manage the day off and I can afford services, but a tease then an announce and 13 days later the event? I’m annoyed and I tend to be pretty pro-Wyrom.

Others have already mentioned it was announced about a month ago. But as for why it wasn’t announced even sooner than that? It’s because this is a pet project. Like the 2016 Great Auction. I have a directive to perform the other events rain or shine. This is something I have to make time for and do beyond my normal duties. Every ounce of work put in here is not included in my project load.

>>Greater mood scripts as a minor, maybe?

Nope, the amount of work that goes into them is up there with custom logphrases, spell preps, and signature verbs.

Hey I just wanna say thank you for putting this together. Hopefully the event runs smoothly. I realize that this is Extra Work and you couldve just put all this behind a paywall in the form of Duskruin or what not. So kudos to you and the team for making the effort and making this available to everyone regardless of Real Life budget. With all the complaints, I feel things like this need to be said more often.

I agree, I think this is a great event that isn’t stuck behind a paywall. You know me I like to complain well I like to be passive agressive.

Subj: Re: The Service Schedule
Thank you for all the answers!
And agreed with the posts above saying it’s awesome how this event is available to all for silvers (…and I’m saying this even as someone who is a big spender on the pay events). Finding out that it’s only a “pet project” makes it that much more impressive.

Another question:

Any chance we can get the silver costs in advance for the services that don’t depend on gear? Like the body features, EZscript package, or custom spell preps/signature verbs/etc.

Yes. Or disqualified entirely from CCF.

Could disqualification be removed and just specify that any passing defaults to an increased fee. Consistency will reduce any misunderstandings and potential complaints.

>>will payment by another character be allowed? or passing of silvers?
No.

Just to confirm, the No was for: Will payment by another character be allowed.

If Luxelle can’t afford her service, I can give her silvers.

>>Re: Pricing
No way to really give you pricing examples here. It goes by the item you bring to us.

Will cost be determined by the amount of Gear Points similar to how the WPS system works? If you could provide the cost ranges for Gear Point values we could guesstimate our costs that way, which would be very helpful.

I’d rather see a 1 service per item rule than to have strict no passing rules.
