Subj: New Cryptic Chest items

A new series of set artifacts has been added to the cryptic chests!

An ornately-framed mirror
-------------------------
* 1x top half of a mirror frame
* 1x bottom half of a mirror frame
* 2x a smashed mirror shard

Will alert you whenever someone tries to sense you. Does not reveal who
did it, and only works on sense skills that are targetted directly on
you (i.e. farsee, and not scent).


A compass of disorientation
---------------------------
* 1x a compass rose diagram
* 1x a magnetized compass needle
* 1x an empty gold-forged compass case
* 1x a broken length of gold chain

Rearranges the exits of the current room temporarily when you SHAKE it.
The room will still connect to the same adjacent rooms, but the exits
leading to them will be different. The effect lasts five minutes and can
only be done once an Aetolian day.


A bracer of hammered ilmenite
-----------------------------
* 4x chunks of ilmenite ore

Glows whenever someone on your enemy list enters the same area as you.
Does not bypass hood and various states such as phase and blackwind.


Eyes of the Observer
--------------------
* 1x Left Eye of the Observer
* 1x Right Eye of the Observer
* 1x an ornate silver gemstone setting
* 1x a silver jewellery chain loop

Allows you to DIAGNOSE other people in the same room as you. Has a
longer equilibrium time than self-diagnose.


A compass-inlaid ilmenite bracer
--------------------------------
* 1x Eyes of the Observer
* 1x bracer of hammered ilmenite
* 1x an ornately-framed mirror
* 1x compass of disorientation
NOTE: Unlike other set item artifacts, all of those artifacts need to
belong to you.

This artifact contains all the powers of its set items, with bonuses!
Bonuses are as follows:

Eye: Can remote diagnose anybody on the same continent.
Mirror: Reveals the name of who sensed you.
Bracer: Bypasses hood, phase, blackwind, etc.
Compass: The exit scrambling affects adjacent rooms as well.
