19.9.3 Miscellaneous Artifacts

(See also HELP ARTIFACTS)

Note About Investing
--------------------
Artifacts that must be invested (and the invested item wielded or worn) in 
order to work properly are marked with an (INVESTED) tag to the far right of 
the artifact name.


Note About Stacking
-------------------
Artifact effects (for similar artifacts) don't combine or stack. If you have,  
say, an Icy Jewel of Striking and a Fire Jewel of Striking, then only one will  
boost the damage and rate at which you land critical hits. In  these cases, the 
higher valued artifact is always the one that works. The other artifact has no  
effect. In general, the best item rules, but there may be exceptions. So don't  
count on having two artifacts and somehow stacking or combining their effects.

Altar of Resurrection: 2500 credits
   - Allows you to ALTAR PLACE this artifact in a room and, upon death, you

     inventory and change the place.

     store twice as many commodities as you would normally be able.

Banath's Greater Vault: 500 credits

Charm of Celerity: 500 credits                   (INVESTED)

     receiving the "too hasty" message.

Eye of Cosmic Perception: 300 credits            (INVESTED)
   - This artifact allows you to see who has scried you, or used a similar
     ability, when your foreboding defense is triggered. NOTE: this
     artifact requires foreboding to be active to function.

Gem of Transmutation: 1000 credits

     by doing RESET STATS.

Glyph of Photographic Memory: 1000 credits       (INVESTED)

     memorize by 5.

Language Permit: 150 credits
   - This artifact allows you to learn an additional language. You can
     buy up to 10 language permits. Once you have a language permit,
     you can do LANGUAGE LEARN to see a list of languages you can
     learn.

     This artifact isn't sold in the artifact shop. Rather, you can:
        BUY LANGUAGE PERMIT

Mark of Dimensional Capacity: 100 credits        (INVESTED)
   - This unique artifact must be invested into a pack, satchel, or
     pouch. Once attached, the pack will no longer decay, will have its
     size increased to hold up to 100 items, and will reset to your
     inventory periodically - ensuring it can't be permanently stolen.

Master Teller's Book of Tales: 500 credits
   - This legendary book of tales allows you to use the STORYTELL ability and 
     weave your own enchanting stories. If you are already a skilled 
     performance user, this book will reduce your STORYTELL cooldown to one 
     third, allowing you to perform more often.

Medal of Expanded Memory: 50 credits
   - This artifact increases the number of allies and enemies you
     may declare from 20 to 30. NOTE: This artifact does not stack.

Memory Orbs
   - This artifact allows you to use the MEMORY abilities (see HELP
     MEMORIES anywhere. Additionally, the memory orbs reduce the
     time required to regain your full proficiency in the skillsets
     you retrieve, allowing you to switch between classes and
     specializations much more rapidly (it takes a full 60 minutes with
     no orb). Memory orbs also eliminate the lesson cost associated with
     retrieving memories. Memory orbs are only usable by the owner.

  Bronze Memory-Orb                  :  250 credits : 45 minute recovery.
  Silver Memory-Orb                  :  500 credits : 30 minute recovery.
  Gold Memory-Orb                    : 1000 credits : 15 minute recovery.

Orb of Statistical Renewal: 100 credits
   - This artifact allows you to RESET STATS and reset all the statistic
     points you have allocated, so you can redistribute them again. In
     the process, this artifact is consumed: so it is a one-time use.

Orb of Wild Experience: 30 credits
   - This artifact allows you to earn 100% increased experience for the
     following 24 real-life hours after it is activated. After you have
     purchased the artifact, use ARTIFACT ACTIVATE <id> to activate it.

     *** This artifact does NOT stack with other Double XP bonuses or
         promotions and is a one time use item.

Rune of Ruthia's Alacrity: 800 credits           (INVESTED)
   - This artifact reduces the natural endurance cost of movement,
     down to a minimum of 1 movement per room. It does not effect
     abilities that increase your movement cost, such as notice (those    
     additional costs cannot be reduced).

Rune of Quickening: 300 credits                  (INVESTED)
   - This artifact allows you to walk normally with one broken leg.

Rune of Sustenance: 600 credits                  (INVESTED)
   - This artifact eliminates the need to naturally eat and sleep. That
     is, you will no longer gain hunger or tiredness over time.

Scroll of Linguistic Forgetfulness: 50 credits
   - This artifact allows you to RESET LANGUAGES and reset any additional
     languages beyond your basic racial languages that you may have learned.
     For Kingdom Humans, it resets your secondary language choice so that
     you may re-select it. This is a one-time use artifact: using it will
     consume the artifact.

Silban's Fertilizing Pouch: 500 credits
   - At the cost of 50 plant harvest charges, you can CULTIVATE to spawn a 
     random plant appropriate to the environment you are in. This plant will 
     spawn only if it is not already growing there. NOTE: THIS DOES NOT WORK 
     IN LAKE MORAELIN.

Societyslot Permit: 25 credits
   - This artifact allows you to join an additional society beyond the
     maximum limit of 10 societies. You can buy up to 20 societyslot
     permits.

     This artifact isn't sold in the artifact shop. Rather, you can:
        BUY SOCIETYSLOT PERMIT
