Verbs

  • STUDY: Studying some [adjective] [noun], you believe you could do the following: FLIP, LACE, NIBBLE, POKE, PULL, PUSH, PRY, RAISE, REMOVE, SHAKE, TILT, TURN, and WEAR. You're fairly certain that with some skill, you could make interesting patterns with the [noun].
  • WEAR: You loop some [adjective] [noun] over your wrists.
  • REMOVE: You let some [adjective] [noun] fall from your wrists.
  • SHAKE: You shake some [adjective] [noun], destroying the pattern in progress.
  • SHAKE: You shake some [adjective] [noun], waving it about.
  • FLIP: You carefully flip one of the loops completely over your wrist, saving that piece of [noun] for use later in the pattern.
  • LACE: You lace the loop of [noun] through your little fingers and thumbs, then take up the twine on the palms of your hands on first your left index finger and then your right, ending up with a vague diamond pattern in the center.
  • NIBBLE: You bite on one of the loops of [noun] in the pattern and raise it up, giving yourself room and enough slack to alter the pattern with your fingers. After you complete your work, you let go again.
  • POKE: You lightly poke your fingers through a couple of the loops on your fingers and pull them taut, changing the pattern slightly.
  • PULL: You pull some of the [noun] off your fingers and thread them onto other fingers, shaping the pattern closer to what you want.
  • PUSH: You carefully push the [noun] off two of your fingers and onto your wrists instead, keeping the loops in place while letting them settle downward.
  • PRY: You pry the loops off your thumbs, letting the twine go fairly slack, then you use your index fingers to incorporate the [noun] further into the pattern.
  • RAISE: You raise a couple of sections of [noun] and put them over existing loops, making the pattern more complicated.
  • TILT: You lightly tilt one hand underneath the other and use it to carefully arrange the [noun], giving you a somewhat asymmetrical pattern.
  • TURN: You carefully turn one of the loops of [noun] around so that the strands are on opposite hands, leaving a slight twist in the center of the pattern.

Messaging

  • Success: You carefully and delicately put the finishing touches on your [noun] pattern. You then put your hands together to let the pattern go slack, and then pull all the strings taut to dramatically reveal some braided silvery twine arranged into a/an <pattern>!
  • Failure: You attempt to incorporate your last movement into the pattern, the twine begins to tangle. In response to the bad move, the twine grows warm briefly and the tangles fall apart.
