23.4.1 ARTIFACT PURCHASES

ARTIFACT SHOPS
--------------
Qeddwyn can be found in the city of Delos; east, northeast and north from the
Bridge. His shop is massive, possessing hundreds of items imbued with the 
powerful Ankyrean powers. Although there are items for sale in the shops, these
are only a portion of the powers that Qeddwyn offers for sale. To purchase one
of the items in the shop, simply have the proper number of bound credits on
hand and buy the item as you would in a normal shop.


PURCHASING POWERS
-----------------
If it is your hope to purchase an artifact power onto an existing item, instead
of purchasing a brand new one, Qeddwyn is also able to help you. Remember that
not all powers go on all items, however, weapon powers may only be added to
weapons, and some others may only be added to wearable artifacts (robes, rings,
collars, etc.), while certain artifact powers may only be added to specific
items. When with Qeddwyn.


ASK QEDDWYN ABOUT ARTIFACT POWERS
   Will give you a full list of all artifact powers. This is also visible in 
   HELP ARTIFACT POWERS. 

ASK QEDDWYN ABOUT WEARABLE POWERS
   This will list all wearable weapon powers, which must be purchased on items 
   that can be WORN to work.

ASK QEDDWYN ABOUT WEAPON POWERS
   This will list all weapon powers, which must be purchased on weapons. 

ASK QEDDWYN ABOUT (power)
   This will tell you more about a specific artifact power. 
   Example: ASK QEDDWYN ABOUT SUSTENANCE

PURCHASE PRICE
--------------
Qeddwyn's price for adding a power to one of your artifacts is as listed. In 
the event that you are buying an upgrade for an artifact power you own (for
example, buying a level 2 strength bonus when you own level 1), the full price
you paid for the artifact power will be reduced from the cost of the upgrade.
This means you will not suffer any of the penalty usually associated with an
artifact tradein. If you are still uncertain about the cost, you can simply ask
Qeddwyn for an exact quote.                         

ASK QEDDWYN ABOUT (power) FOR (artifact)
ASK QEDDWYN ABOUT (power) FOR (artifact) LEVEL (new level)

BUY ARTIFACT POWER (power) FOR (artifact) LEVEL (level)

Example: BUY ARTIFACT POWER ASP FOR RAPIER
Example: BUY ARTIFACT POWER MAGIC_POTENCE FOR ROBE LEVEL 3

Artifacts are purchased with bound credits. Artifacts purchased for another
person must be paid for with unbound credits. 

ARTIFACT POWER TRANSFERS
------------------------
You may transfer powers from one artifact to another, if the power is
transferable and the item type is suitable for the weapon power. 

Artifact power transfers cost 25 Bound Credits, and if the artifact from which
a power is being transferred has no powers left after a transfer, it will be
destroyed.

BUY ARTIFACT TRANSFER (power) FROM (old artifact) TO (new artifact)

ARTIFACT SHARING
----------------
All artifacts will reset into your inventory on a very regular basis, which
means that they cannot be loaned out very long, but that they also cannot be
stolen for very long. They'll also never decay. They cannot be changed to reset
to anyone else's inventory, so do not buy artifacts of any kind if you intend
to sell them. It is impossible to permanently transfer an artifact, especially
between characters under the same registration.

ARTIFACT TATTOOS
----------------
In from the main hall of the Artifact shop is an Artifact tattoo parlour, where
you can purchase silver ink tattoos. These have unlimited uses and will never
fade. They can also never be wiped off or removed. To buy the tattoo, BUY
(tattoo) ON (body part).
