Hold the object you want altered in your left hand before you write to this scroll.
  You currently have nothing in your left hand.

To get rid of your alterer's scroll, you must DROP it.  It will blow away after a little while.  Once you drop a scroll, all information about your request will be erased, and you will need to get a new one from the merchant.

WRITE CHANGE   Allows you to change the item you want to be altered.
               You must be holding the new item in your left hand
               when you used this option.
WRITE NEW {text}  Overwrites any existing request, but if the scroll
                  is already associated with an item, it will not
                  change that association (use CHANGE, in that case).
                  You can use this to start over at any time prior
                  to ACCEPTing the alteration and price.
WRITE REPLY {text}   Allows you to respond to a merchant's message.
WRITE ACCEPT   (Signs the alteration contract and authorizes
                the merchant to charge you and create the
WRITE OFFER {amount} [province]  When a merchant gives you a price for
                     the alteration, you can bargain a different
                     price using this command.
                     The optional province can be:
                       ZOLUREN, THERENGIA, ILITHI or QI'RESHALIA

You ACCEPT after the merchant has approved either an alteration, or a counteroffer on the price for the alteration.

Once you have written to the scroll, you are free to put both items away, and go on about your business.  You'll be notified when the merchant responds in any way.  However, you will need to have the scroll in your possession in order to respond to any messages or suggestions the merchant makes.

Merchants have the final word.  Read any posted information about what types of things the merchant alters and what rules the merchant uses.
