7.17 Vials and flasks

Vials are used to store the various elixirs, salves, and toxins found in
Imperian. Vials can be filled by one who has learned Concoctions, or by a
mobile named Rythanis (HELP RYTHANIS), or from a shop that has stocked an
artifact flask.

Vials come in assorted styles and levels of usefulness:

Standard wooden, metal, glass, bone:
 - Can hold 50 sips or applications.
 - Can hold 60 sips if the filler is highly skilled in Concoctions.

Artifact gemstone vials:
 - Can hold 100 sips or applications.
 - Can hold 110 sips if the filler is  highly skilled in Concoctions.
 - Does not require or use balance when being filled from an artifact flask.

Vial of Ubiquity:
 - A rare artifact that is occasionally sold during artifact auctions. 
 - Uses sips at a decreased rate.
 - Does not require or use balance when filled from an artifact flask.

Elixirs, salves, and toxins can also be stored in an artifact flask. You cannot
drink or apply directly from a flask, but must instead first transfer the
contents into a vial. Transferring the contents of a flask to a vial will
require and use balance unless you are filling an artifact vial. Flasks can
store up to 50,000 sips or applications. You cannot be forced to empty a flask.

Flask commands:

  FILL <flask> FROM <pot>
    - Transfer the contents from a Concoctions pot into a flask. The flask
      will be filled with 50 sips/applications for every unit of brew.
    - This is the only way to get sips/applications into a flask.
  FILL <vial> FROM <flask>
    - Transfer the contents from a flask into a vial. If the destination
      vial is a standard vial, 50 sips/applications will be used from the
      flask and 50 sips will be added to the vial. If you are Transcendent
      in Concoctions, 60 sips will be added to the vial, but only 50 sips
      will be removed from the flask.
    - If the destination vial is an artifact vial, 100 sips will be added to
      the vial, but only 50 sips will be removed from the flask. If you are
      Transcendent in Concoctions, 110 sips will be added to the vial.
  PRESERVE TOXIN IN <flask>
    - Stores some toxin in a flask, if you have the relevant ability in 
      Toxins.
  EMPTY <flask>
    - Empty the contents from a flask.
  PRICE <flask> <price>
    - If you are the owner of an artifact flask and have the ability to price
      items in a shop, you can sell refills of the salve/elixir/toxin from your
      shop. The artifact flask will reset to the floor of your shop until you
      get the flask up off the ground.
    - The price that you specify is the cost for one refill from the flask. 
      One refill is governed by the same sip rules described above for 
      standard and artifact vials. 50 sips will always be taken from the flask
      for a purchased refill.
  REFILL <vial> FROM <flask>
    - Use this to refill a vial from a shop.
  ELIXLIST FLASK
    - If you have the relevant ability in Perception, you can see the contents
      of any flasks in your inventory.
