Entryway

[Mystical Machinations, Entryway]
Tendrils of ice blue mist swirl in an hypnotic dance around a coruscating orb of dark cerulean light that hovers in the center of this chamber. Walls of pearlescent white marble encase the strange building like a tomb, lending a feeling of solace and remoteness to this Enchanter's workshop.
You also see a lightning shrouded pool, an ornate silver stand with a glistening ethereal tome on it and an elegant crystal-paned sign.
Obvious exits: north, northeast, east, southeast, south, southwest, west, northwest, out.


  • To leave, you can either move OUT, or you can READ the tome.

Justicar's Chamber

[Mystical Machinations, Justicar's Chamber]
Golden tower shields adorn the cold white marble walls, lending a regal air to this chamber. A single platinum silk tapestry cascades down from the ceiling, embroidered with the image of a faceless man bedecked in plate mail and holding a broadsword in his right hand and an olive laurel in his left. Soft black velvet cushions lie strewn in a reverent circle beneath the tapestry.
You also see a shimmering golden arch, a stately onyx-framed sign and a rickety cobweb-covered bookshelf with several things on it.
Obvious exits: southwest.


The sign reads:

        |  There are two types of spellbooks you may purchase.  The  |
        |  more simplistic and inexpensive kind can be found here on |
        |  the bookshelf.  These spellbooks are mostly just for show |
        |  and don't have much in the way of fuctionality.  They     |
        |  will NOT function with any other item sold in this shop,  |
        |  except for spellbook cases which they may be put into.    |

        |  The discerning spellweaver may choose to construct their  |
        |  own custom spellbook.  These advanced spellbooks have     |
        |  several extra features including:                         |

        |    2) The capacity to write small notes on                 |
        |       each individual spell's page.                        |

        |  To purchase one of the simplistic spellbooks, simply BUY  |
        |  one of the ones off the shelf.  Make sure to GET it first |
        |  to be sure it's the one you want.  If you would like to   |
        |  create a custom spellbook, go through the arch.           |
        |                                                            |
        |  WARNING: Spellbooks may be damaged if stored improperly.  |
        |  You may wish to purchase a spellbook case before you      |
        |  actually make your purchase.  To purchase one, return to  |
        |  the entryway of the shop and manipulate the orb until you |
        |  come across the Receptacles Chamber.                      |

[Mystical Machinations, Healer's Chamber]
A large crystalline pool inlaid with pattern of twining malachite vines dominates the chamber. Bright gaethzen globes suspended from the sterile white marble ceiling reflect off the walls, illuminating the chamber with a severe glow that eradicates all nearby shadow.

Hunter's Chamber

[Mystical Machinations, Hunter's Chamber]
Verdant tapestries depicting the forest hunt sweep from the ceiling above, lending a semblance of the wilderness to the austere and sterile environment of this chamber. Plush black velvet cushions are strewn causally around the chamber, offering a moment's rest. You also see a rickety cobweb-covered bookshelf with some stuff on it, a stately onyx-framed sign and some writhing maiden's tress vines descending from the high ceiling.

Seer's Chamber

[Mystical Machinations, Seer's Chamber]
Gaethzen globes shaded by veils of dusky crystal suffuse the chamber in a moody pall of midnight blue light, muting the severity of the white marble walls. Strange motes of silver light float freely in the air, forming a chaotic display of the heavens' constellations that cycles in the ever-changing dance of Fate's tide. You also see a rickety cobweb-covered bookshelf with some stuff on it, a stately onyx-framed sign, some plush black velvet cushions and a blazing tri-color Moongate.
Obvious exits: northeast.

Elemancer's Chamber

[Mystical Machinations, Elemancer's Chamber]
A symmetric oval of six silver stands rise from the floor, each one grasping a piece of colored crystal. Strange motes of light flicker within their depths, stirring with essence of the elements. Cushions of plush black velvet lie strewn within the circle of crystals, bathed in the ebb and flow of their luminous gaze. You also see a dark granite platform, a rickety cobweb-covered bookshelf with some stuff on it and a stately onyx-framed sign.

Hierophant's Chamber

[Mystical Machinations, Hierophant's Chamber]
Austere walls of pearlescent white marble have been draped with somber tapestries depicting the various stages of Life and Death -- the never-ending cycle the gods have bestowed upon mortals. Pale silver taper candles rise elegantly from sconces in the floor, casting their crystalline glow over intricately woven prayer carpets and velvet cushions that circle a speckled granite altar in the center of the chamber. You also see a pale silver arch obscured with ghostly fog, a stately onyx-framed sign and a rickety cobweb-covered bookshelf with some stuff on it.
Obvious exits: southeast.

Merchandiser's Chamber

[Mystical Machinations, Merchandiser's Chamber]
Embedded gems line the gold walls of this chamber, allowing any light that hits the wall, or the gems ensconced within it to sparkle with a blinding luminescence. A few cushioned redwood chairs have been positioned, allowing visitors a place to sit. The gentle sounds of coins clinking together drift through the room, creating a sort of background music.
You also see an undulating trading contract, a rickety cobweb-covered bookshelf with several things on it and an ornate gold placard.

Beading (Light)

[Mystical Machinations, Beading]
A nimbus of ghostly light shudders quietly in the center of the chamber, extending its spectral fingers out toward the dark marble walls greedily. A fuzzy illumination suffuses the wares laid out for sale. You also see a holy symbol rack with some stuff on it, an engraved silver plaque, an onyx crest pedestal with some stuff on it, a glass-paned jewel case and a varnished mahogany table with some stuff on it.
Obvious exits: none.

Sockets (Fire-shrouded Portal)

[Mystical Machinations, Sockets]
Austere white marble walls rise to meet the domed ceiling. The air crackles with heat radiating from a shimmering fire-shrouded portal that has been torn open in the middle of the chamber.
You also see an ornate crystalline table with several things on it, a deep ebony socket rack with several things on it, an elegant crystalline plaque and a small silver-framed sign.
Obvious exits: none.

|   The crystals on the table each possess certain mystic    |
|   properties.  They can be placed in a socket on a book    |
|   to produce certain effects to protect or enhance them.   |
|   Each crystal may be utilized by anyone of sufficient     |
|   skill, but only Mages of the correct mana type will be   |
|   able to recharge their effects once depleted.            |
|                                                            |
|   Kuldaez Crystals: Recharged by Warrior Mages.            |
|     The kuldaez crystal is charged with a matrix of        |
|     elemental energy that is released when one who is      |
|     not the owner attempts to touch a spellbook.  This     |
|     will result in either a fireball, lightning bolt       |
|     or frost scythe being conjured at the unfortunate      |
|     sap with grabby hands.  The one exception to this      |
|     rule is the hafaltu-veined variety, which will         |
|     conjure an ethereal shield around a spellbook for      |
|     a period of time once invoked, to shield it from       |
|     the elements of rain and snow.                         |
|                                                            |
|   NOTICE: As with all things magical, the crystals are     |
|     not infinite.  They will deteriorate with time and     |
|     use, eventually shattering.  Those more skilled in     |
|     the ways of Magical Devices will find less chance      |
|     of harming their crystal, however.                     |

Spellbook Locks (Archway)

[Mystical Machinations, Spellbook Locks]
A dark ethereal archway flickers with instability in the middle of the chamber. Mirrored steel walls enclose all around, highlighting multiple angles of the wares on display. You also see an elegant silverwillow table with some stuff on it, an ornate wrought iron rack with some stuff on it and a dark steel plaque.
Obvious exits: none.

|   This chamber holds an array of locks which may keep      |
|   the arcane knowledge in your spellbook safe from the     |
|   prying eyes of children, enemies, and overzealous        |
|   apprenticies alike.  The plain locks on the rack are     |
|   the most inexpensive measure we have available, and      |
|   each come with a matching key.  Be warned, however --    |
|   any key from one of these locks will open its matching   |
|   lock, regardless if that key was bought with that        |
|   particular lock.                                         |
|                                                            |
|   If it is more security you require, the bloodlocks on    |
|   the table may be for you.  They are imbued with a bit    |
|   of magic that will identify the owner's essence as well  |
|   as the cut of the key.  These locks will only open for   |
|   a key of the same lock type that is also attuned to the  |
|   first person to activate them.                           |

Spellbook Receptacles (Mist)

[Mystical Machinations, Spellbook Receptacles]
A swirling mass of icy mist churns in the center of the chamber. Gaethzen globes hanging from above illuminate the wares laid out for sale. You also see a varnished ebony plaque, a graceful gold filigree stand with some stuff on it, a circular ebony table with some stuff on it and a polished ironwood rack with some stuff on it.
Obvious exits: northeast.

|   The gold stand holds shoulder chains which you may       |
|   attach to your spellbook to wear it slung over the       |
|   shoulder.  The ebony table holds hip-chain harnesses     |
|   that will allow you to wear your spellbook like a belt.  |
|   Be careful in wearing your book with these, as they      |
|   will still be vulnerable to rain and snow.               |
|                                                            |

|   your spellbook, wands and rods, runestones, scrolls,     |
|   prayer parchments and various other magic components     |
|   such as naphtha, holy oil or Kort potion.  Turn the      |
|   case to shift between the compartments for your various  |
|   items.  The cases will keep your spellbook safe from     |
|   the elements, and alleviate that awful clutter in your   |
|   backpack.  These cases are padded and custom-fit to the  |
|   contours of spellbooks, and will eliminate the           |
|   occasional damage that may result from jostling around   |
|   in unsuitable containers.                                |
|                                                            |

|   inexpensive.  Larger cases are for sale northeast.       |
|                                                            |
|   NOTE:  Chains will only attach to spellbooks that were   |
|   custom-made -- not the inexpensive ones off the rack.    |
|   Cases will hold all spellbooks, custom or not.           |
|                                                            |

[Mystical Machinations, Spellbook Receptacles]
Badly flickering gaethzen globes hang from above, their feeble light glinting off silver flecks within the white marble walls. A slight chill emanates from all around, giving the chamber the distinct feeling of a tomb. You also see a varnished ebony plaque, an ice-blue steel table with some stuff on it, a polished silverwillow shelf with some stuff on it and a cold black iron rack with some stuff on it.
Obvious exits: southwest.

Writing Tools (Rift)
