Subj: Auction #2 wares

The second of the three artifact auctions has begun! Read over HELP
AUCTIONS if you are unfamiliar with the auction process Aetolia uses.

As usual, any artifacts bought through auction (including the gold
items) cannot be traded in, nor can their power be transferred to any
other item. If you purchase an item for credits, you will have roughly a
week to procure the credits for it, or your character will be shrubbed
until such a time you can provide the credits.

The items are as follows:

+------------------------------+
| NEW CREDIT AUCTION ARTIFACTS |
+------------------------------+

An emblem of martyrdom
----------------------
Can be activated once per howling. When you next die, all allies in the
same area as you will be fully healed and cured of all afflictions. They
will also be invulnerable to damage for five seconds. Works only for the
owner.


Weighted shoes
--------------
These shoes will allow you a moderate chance to remain standing after an
opponent attempts to knock you over. Broken limbs will negate this
chance.


Idol of the Berserker
---------------------
When used, the idol prevents everyone in the room (including yourself)
from shielding or using prismatic barriers for two minutes. Can be used
once an hour.


A gem of destabilization
------------------------
When activated, acts as a portable monolith sigil for whichever room the
holder is in.


A box of chocolates
-------------------
Allows the owner to pull one random chocolate (the buff giving ones)
from it once per howling.

The Elindes Talisman
--------------------
This talisman has 6 petals upon it which may be plucked at any time, and
each petal, when consumed, will restore the health, mana, blood,
endurance, and willpower of the owner. If consumed by anyone else, the
petals will restore only the endurance and willpower of that person. The
petals regrow at a rate of one per month.


A Torc of Vitality
------------------
The Torc of Vitality grants the use of the Vitality ability. This
artifact can only be used by its owner.


A Ring of Translocation
-----------------------
This ring may be used to create a translocation portal across a given
exit. When an individual crosses into or out of a room through that
exit, they will be randomly transported to a different location within
the same general area.

This power can only be used once per hour, and cannot be used in
unstable environments. The portal remains in effect for a period of five
minutes.


An Orb of Nullification
-----------------------
This orb will prevent any actions against you which attempt to directly
force you to perform unintended acts.


A Funereal Masque
-----------------
The wearer of this masque will have their name hidden on deathsight when
they slay another.
