6.8.5 Refill Tuns

(See also HELP VIALS, HELP CONCOCTIONS, HELP REFILLS, HELP TRANSMUTATION)

Tuns are a storage item that can be placed in the stockroom of a shop that
will allow players to purchase the contents as superfills for their vials.

Purchasing and placement
------------------------
Tuns can be purchased by a Licensed Master Shopkeeper from Fronck by typing:

   REQUEST TUN DESIGNATION

The current fee for this is 200,000 gold sovereigns   
   
The LMS should then take the designator and drop it in the stockroom they wish
the tun to be installed in. Take care with your choice, as once placed, a tun
can only be picked by the person who originally purchased it from Fronck. To 
drop a designator, you must have the ability to price things in that shop.

There is no limit on how many tuns you may own, with the exception of how much
space you have available in your stockroom.

Filling
-------
A tun can be filled with any milkable venom or concoctions elixir, straight
from a concoctions pot or non-artefact vial by standing in the same room and
doing:

   FILL <tun> WITH <vial|pot|alembic|fluid>
   
As with normal concoctions refills, a fill from a pot will provide either 40
or 50 sips into the tun depending on whether you are transcendent in
Concoctions. For venoms, a refill is counted as 150 sips and for concoctions,
a refill is counted as 200 sips. If there are less sips than this available in
the tun, it will show as having no refills available until you add more. A full
tun will hold enough to refill 100 vials.

You can only fill a tun if you have the ability to price items in the shop.

Pricing and Shop Policies
-------------------------
If you have permission to price things in the shop, you will then be able to

   PRICE <tun> <price>

to set the cost in gold sovereigns per refill.  Shop policies also apply to
the use of tuns. If you have a discount or are refused service in a shop
normally, this will include the use of the tuns in a shop.

Refilling from a tun
--------------------
To purchase a refill from a tun, with the requisite gold in hand, you just:

   REFILL <vial|fluid|empty> WITH <tun|fluid>
   
IMPORTANT NOTES
---------------
1. Tuns will give you a complete superfill (not just a refill) and charge you
the same price, regardless of how full your vial was in the first place. For
example, refilling a half-full vial will cost you exactly the same amount as
an empty vial.

2. Any work to be done with the tuns should be able to be completed by anyone
who has permission to price things in your shop. This means that even though
only the owner can pick a tun up, anyone with permissions to your shop can
both fill and empty all the tuns in your stockroom.
