Ceryaen glances at a simple ecosphere and inclines her head. "Your ecosphere is progressing nicely, [name]. I believe it is time for us to unlock greater secrets within." She reaches out and cradles the simple ecosphere gently in her webbed hand. A silvery glow pulses slowly, and after many moments, it finally fades.

Arbiter Ceryaen hands a <hemispherical> ecosphere dangling from a <braided> <damite> chain back, and you are certain that it is different than before.

Study

The <shape> ecosphere is a special gift earned, not given, by helping the Merelew during a time of need. The lifeforms within, both plant and animal alike, are given special blessings for a long, healthful life. The blessings depend on the one who earned it, and the Merelew consider it a great dishonor to lose or give away the ecosphere.

Added for HE 439: You believe you could RAISE the spherical ecosphere to summon an unstable ripplegate to visit Ceryaen, though this magic is fleeting and only persists when Andreshlew is near.

While the Merelew welcome visitors to Andreshlew, the hemispherical ecosphere serves as a vessel of honor and a record of deeds. Representatives from the major factions would appreciate you SHOWing it to them to support their cause.

[While you can convey your support to any representative, your standing with all others will be reduced by half the amount when you do so. It is advised that you choose a single faction to support this visit. Support will not be taken back or undone by staff. Use care.]

No messaging for second person.
Third Person: With a gurgle, a pool of water quickly bubbles up from the ground and lifts into the air. It begins to spiral, like a whirlpool turned on its side, forming an unstable ripplegate.
RAISE (when on cooldown) First Person: You lift the <shape> ecosphere, and a faint glow surrounds it, but nothing further happens.

[You've used this recently and must wait before summoning another ripplegate.]

No messaging for second person.
No messaging for third person.

Note: Base cooldown is 1 hour in Prime, 30 minutes in Platinum and Fallen. For every tier unlocked, time is reduced by another 5 minutes, with a floor of 25 minutes for Prime, and 10 minutes for Platinum/Fallen.

Variations

This is a consolidated page that describes the mechanics of an item with many cosmetic variations, such as Hollow Eve gifts. Please document functionality, verbs, and other important information here instead of posting it on individual item pages. This ensures that all of the documentation is on one page instead of having it scattered across multiple pages; it also simplifies collaboration.


You may still create/edit individual item pages to add looks and other appraisal data, but please include a link to this page where players can read about how the item works.

Example

a hemispherical ecosphere dangling from a braided damite chain
Nestled within the hemispherical ecosphere, giant twisted fingers of periwinkle coral peek out, veiled by billowing pink strands of sand moss. Stirring up the auburn grains of sand lying at the bottom, miniature jewel-toned seahorses fluidly circle one another, resplendent in their tiny sanctuary.
The hemispherical ecosphere is bathed in a soft silver light, though it has no obvious source.
