The TIE command can be used in a variety of contexts, including tying weapon straps to weapons, arranging a character's hair, and tying off gem pouches.

Usage and Syntax

Caravans

Traders may TIE <CORPSE> TO CARAVAN to have their caravan tow a dead body along behind it starting at 10th circle.

Gem Pouches

Tying a gem pouch converts the entire pouch into one item. This is very useful to help manage your inventory count, and also allows you to continue adding gems into a pouch above the normal maximum capacity of 70.

When you tie a gem pouch, all the individual gems inside it are destroyed and converted into a lump-sum monetary value. This process is irreversible so make sure there are no "keepers" in a pouch before you tie it. Also be careful if you have used STORE to designate a tied gem pouch as a STOW target; any new gems placed into a tied pouch will also be destroyed.

Tied gem pouches can be sold just like an untied pouch; however they can only be sold by a Trader. After selling to a gem appraiser, the empty pouch will be returned to you untied.

  • Thieves cannot steal from a tied pouch.
  • Traders can UNTIE a tied gem pouch in order to split the value or combine it with another tied pouch. Note however that this does NOT recreate individual gems and the pouch remains tied.
