COLLECTING CURIOS - Lusternia Online Help


Curios come in sets, and the goal is to collect enough to put together for a complete item. Some curios are rarer than others. Once complete, you can carry it around or set it in your manse. The following commands are available for curio collectors:

  CURIO TRADE <COMPLETE|PIECE> <curio> TO <person> FOR <curio>
  CURIO ATTACH <curio part> TO <curio part>
  CURIO BREAK <partial>
  CURIO ANCHOR <curio>
  CURIO RUB <curio>
  CURIO ACTIVATE <completed curio>

To list all curios, simply input CURIOS. This will list all curios in your possession and to what collection they belong in.

Syntax (for listing curios):
  CURIOS ALL [<pattern>]
  CURIOS SET <set>
  CURIOS COLLECTION <collection>

Curios always reset to their owner so they are impossible to lose or have stolen. However, you can CURIO TRADE one curio for another curio.

In order to put curios together, you must CURIO ATTACH them to fit together. As soon as two pieces are put together, it forms a partially complete curio and you can continue to attach parts to it. You can CURIO BREAK to break apart partially completed curios. 

You can CURIO SHOW to see details on the curio, including what powers it has (you must specify either a piece or completed curio). CURIO POWERS will list completed curios with powers and which powers are active (if any).

Some curios can be set up in a manse. Once a curio is complete, you can CURIO ANCHOR it to a manse that you own. This will change its reset room to a room in your manse (though you can still pick it up if you want). You can CURIO UNANCHOR at any time.

You can CURIO RUB to turn a curio piece into another curio (usually of the same type but could possibly be any type of curio or a stack of gold. You cannot rub a full curio or a partially completed curio. Rare curios will never rub into gold; rather they will rub either into another rare curio or into two non-rare curios.

Finally, CURIO CONVERT will convert 30 free lessons into a random curio. For every 10 curios converted through lessons, you will receive a free curio.

The CURIOS command will list curios and curio pieces in your inventory. You can filter how to sort curios in various manners. 

Czigany curios are magical objects d'art, usually uncovered from the ruins of the Cultural Province of the Czigany Coast. More on their origins can be found in the Event News 226. These items are wholly aesthetic in purpose and have no functional value whatsoever; rather, they are purely collector items.

Magic item curios are sold in the Glittering Gallery of Broken Curios on Avechna's Peak. They function like any enchantable object but can hold 200 charges. You do not need to wear or wield these items to use, and they will also surround you with colourful atmospheric messages (this feature can be toggled on and off by a TOUCH). Note: These items will only activate if in your inventory!

Damage resistant curios give damage resistance for various damage types - 2/7 if they are of one damage type and 1/7 per damage type if they give multiple. You can only have one damage resistant curio active at any time. CURIO ACTIVATE will activate these curios.

Damage enhancement curios buff damage for various damage types. You can only have one damage enhancement curio active at any time. CURIO ACTIVATE will activate these curios.

Travel curios improve movement speed in various terrain types. All travel curios will be active so long as they are in your inventory.

As you collect curios, you will notice some are associated with 'collections'. Collections generally are made up of four curios: a magic item curio, a damage resistant curio, a damage enhancement curio, and a travel curio. You can CURIO COLLECTION ACTIVATE a collection to trigger its power.

Usable only on the Prime plane, these bubbles when popped will transport you to a random room within a certain area. CURIO ACTIVATE will activate these curios.

Some curio parts can be found through questing! These combine to form special curios that can only be collected through completing certain quests.

The cooking curios are grouped in collections of four. They are bottles which can be sprinkled once per Lusternian month over any crafted food to transform that food into a specialty food item. If you sprinkle two different bottles from the same collection, the food will transform into a different specialty item, and again if you sprinkle three different bottles from the same collection. These specialty foods are highly nutritious but don't have any special powers. However, if you sprinkle all four bottles from the same collection onto a crafted food item, it will give a critical hit blessing on whoever eats it. If you eat multiple blessed items, the critical hit bonus will stack up to 5 times (but no more) and also stacks on top of critical hit artifacts, clovers, etc.

Cooks have a chance of receiving a curio piece the first time they cook or bake an item each Lusternian day. This chance is ONLY on the FIRST item cooked or baked that day and not subsequent attempts. There is a 5% chance of receiving a curio piece (10% if you own an artifact spatula) on your first successful crafting attempt.

Tailoring curios are grouped in collections of four. They create bows which can be attached (ATTACH command) to articles of clothing. Every bow attached to an article of clothing will raise the prestige of that article of clothing (except red bows will lower the prestige). Note: if you give a piece of clothing with one of your bows attached, the bow will eventually return to its owner's inventory. If you have an entire collection of bows, you will receive an influence bonus according to the collection:

Red Bows 	3/10 Charity
Orange Bows 	3/10 Paranoia
Yellow Bows 	3/10 Weaken
Green Bows 	3/10 Empower
Blue Bows 	3/10 Seduction
Indigo Bows 	3/10 Village Influence
Violet Bows 	3/10 Diplomacy 

Tailors have a chance of receiving a bow curio piece the first time they sew an article of clothing each Lusternian day.  The chance is ONLY on the FIRST item sewn that day and not subsequent attempts. There is a 5% of receiving a curio piece (10% if you own artifact shears) on your successful crafting attempt.
