Tarina

From elanthipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Interacts with socketed jewelry sold by Flintheart's Fine Imports, found in the Better Box o' Gems and the Finest Box of Gems. These were released during the Hollow Eve Festival 410.

These gems come in multiple versions, all with the same LOOK prior to placement into a setting:
Though smoothly polished, the surface of the gem is dull and blotchy, not unlike old, dirty glass.

There are 2 types of tarina, standard and pure. The standard will change the appearance of tarina settings as documented below. Pure tarinas will have the added affect of causing room messaging (atmo messaging) to occur.

The Tarina's will last indefinitely while inactive, however once you place one into a setting, they begin to degrade. You can APPRAISE your tarina to estimate the amount of time left before it fades away. Once the appraisal value reaches zero (0) is when that will happen. You can extend the duration of your Tarina by removing it from the setting when you are not needing to display it.

As only the atmospheric pulses cause the decay, the standard tarinas can remain in a setting indefinitely. If room atmospherics are desired, then the pure tarinas will need to be replenished as they degrade.

Both types must be provided for alterations.

Setting Variations & Appearance Outcomes

The following items can be used as a setting to wear and display the tarina's:

 
Pale armband with an empty setting
Pale bracer with an empty setting
Pale brooch with an empty setting
Pale cameo with an empty setting
Pale capelet with an empty setting
Pale cassock with an empty setting
Pale charm with an empty setting
Pale circlet with an empty setting
Pale cloche with an empty setting
Pale coronet with an empty setting
Pale crown with an empty setting
Pale jacket with an empty setting
Pale pin with an empty setting
Pale ring with an empty setting
Pale tiara with an empty setting
Pale turban with an empty setting

These settings can be used with both tarinas and other gems, such as emeralds, rubies, etc. The tarina's all have very unique outcomes. On other gems, in general the tarina setting will take on the color in the TAP of the gem, for example a tiny peach pearl put into a pin setting will result in a peach pin. If there is no obvious color, the default will be a kaleidoscopic <item>. The following table documents some of the resulting color outcomes, and where applicable, the atmospheric messages given, with various gems:
