Spheres - Imperian Online Help
A game brought back by Timas, Master of Games, from his travels across every corner of the world, Avasyuvian Spheres are powerful, and dangerous. Once the game has been initiated, ten spheres are scattered about the world, and may be found using the SPHERES command. Once found, you may pick one up. A random time after the game begins, the sphere will transform into a truesilver token, which you can take back to Timas, in exchange for drawing from his cards for your prize. However, every so often, a sphere will pulse with energy. If it is being held at the time, the holder will be instantly killed. A player carrying a sphere cannot drop it, give it to a mobile, or do anything else except give it away to someone else. It becomes a game of skill and bravery, as well as luck, deciding on whether to keep it, or pass it on. Two variations exist, one in which killing the holder of a sphere or coin will result in them dropping it, and another being able to lay claim to the item. In this variation, dying will not cost experience. The second variation, killing a player will not cause them to lose the sphere, but experience will be lost if the sphere kills them. Timas will announce when a game is going to begin, as well as its nature. During a game, he can be found at the Dais in Ruined Caanae.
