Single Shimmer Trinket To Be Raffled At Ebon Gate

GM Estild shows off the all new Shimmer Trinket coming to Ebon Gate. Look the way you want. Show worn inventory or hide things … then save it for next time. There will be 1 raffled off. General sales will only be next Duskruin. WAIL! That’s so long to wait, am I right?!

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.)

Omrii: Okay, thanks Haliste. You’re way better than Wyrom.

It’s my exotic muffins from the ship that croninberged itself in Solhaven.

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 tap the edges of the seedpod, it pops open, and a strange voice issues from within its depths. “Salvation awaits you, come to Caligos Isle.” The seedpod transforms into a silvery indigo mist that dissipates almost instantly.

>tap seed
As you tap the edges of the seedpod, it bursts in your hand, and dozens of baby eels slip from it. They fall upon the ground with a wet smack and dissolve into a silvery mist.

>tap seed
As you tap the edges of the seedpod, it bursts in your hand with a wet explosion that releases a dark indigo shadow from its core. Looming over you, the shadow has silver eyes, and you feel its dominating presence like a wet blanket upon you. A strange voice fills your mind, “Salvation awaits you. Won’t you come to me?” Slowly, the shadow dissolves in a spray of silver mist.

Subj: Shimmer Trinket
>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.

So, like the AdvGuild armoires only in reverse?
(Those add/remove specific items [essentially acting to delete them from visible inventory], while these “show only this” and hide everything else.)

Very cool. 😀


Cendadric says, “Hmm, a most impressive weapon of note. I’ll give you 27 silver coins for it.”
You think to yourself, “This deal is getting worse all the time.”

Notes from Estild from Discord in regards to the 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
* No specific way of knowing if someone is using a “shimmer” trinket
* 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)

Correction:
* 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.

Love this! Will it by chance capture tattoos and features as well or just the inventory?
