What's your characters favourite item and why?

Postby Evelyn » Thu Apr 03, 2014 1:10 pm

Hi guys! I thought it would be fun to tell everyone what the favourite item your char has and why?

Evelyn's is her dolly -

a ragged cloth doll with a tiny wooden hammer

This crude little doll has been given long yellow strips of yarn as hair and tiny shards of turquoise for eyes. A comically grim expression crosses its tiny mouth. Its clothing consists of bits of brown and black fur, sewn together in at attempt to cover its body. The tiny hammer has been permanently attached to its arm with black yarn.

Evelyn was given this by little Lisa from the orphanage for her birthday about three years ago. It's her most prized possession and it goes everywhere with her.

I think Faylen's most prized posession is a weapon she was gifted by another PC some time back. Sadly due to the material of the item, it's not repairable so she doesn't actually use it anymore, but she keeps it anyway because it was an expected and cherished gift.

A detailed map of Ave Luce in the Viali capital city of Sbarco. This was given to Alexander at a time when he was still new in the Lost Lands, and feeling extremely homesick. The one to give it to him was the first person to meet him, and the two had formed a strong friendship as they were both each others' first real friend after having left their respective homelands. The map is currently hanging on the wall of his living cell in Shadgard, and it still causes him to remember fondly that friendship from his first days in the Lost Lands.
(Alexander clenches a fist momentarily, then stops and calms himself with visible effort.)

I have some good stuff. My collection of firestones. Kent's skinning knives. Several guild specific items, not of my guild (epic). My sweet Faewyr cloak. All my fancy jewelry. My pocketwatch. And a certain notorious (legendary?) dual-feathered hat, though Sethen has that now.

Oh, and I almost forgot.... pink frilly curtains.

Gee...I have a lot of stuff that I like too. My top three favorites would be Lae's wedding ring, the holly bead bracelet that someone gave to Sethen, and the awesome cookbook that Bryce gave Lae for Christmas.

Probably Ardors mule:

This stout, grouchy-looking beast is clearly a landino mule, a breed prized for their strength and unwavering will, though they are also infamously stubborn, even amongst mules.

Thank you Evelyn, for bringing up this question.

If Kent had to loose all his items except for one, Kent would hold onto a burnished flintlock revolver with a fine-grain cedar handle, customized back in the day by Wynthor. A real beaut of a firearm.

Zaki's is probably her blanket. Which sadly never gets to see the light of day because blankets are the most proppy props in the entire MUD.
You also notice the corpse of a canim scavenger (x169).

Zeel has an amethyst-inset medallion that caught his fancy and he hasn't let it leave his side since. It's just a regular loot grinder item, some other fellow got a garnet-inset medallion (but his was shoddy quality while mine was above average muwuhahaha!) but it was the first time I got something cool from a box and I like medallions, too.

He also doesn't tuck it away and it proudly hangs over his permanent fancy outfit. But that's because the medallion can't be tucked away.

Because it says so much about my character, people can deduce a lot just by looking at it.

Due to the nature of the character, Lysse has very few items that she cares about a great deal. But among them are a bedrool given to her by Faylen, and a shortsword she took from a certain Mercenary. Unfortunately, I think both of the items were lost, so I can't show specific descriptions.

"A choice nevertheless, or perhaps an alternative. You see I believe in freedom. Not many people do, although they will of course protest otherwise. And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based.”

My fav item would have been the few scale-mail headdress's I lifted off the mines liches. I dont have them anymore though :(

I imagine them as like, a scaled cowl with raven feathers that tuffed out and ran down in two lines like two mohawks that ran down both sides of the crown of your head and neck. (Not straight down the center kind of mohawk.)

I have like 10 alts. Love a lot of items on all of them.

Number 3 is a fairly simple facewrap. It hides Spearhead's face from curious folks:
tap face
You tap the napped gray linen face-wrap painted with stark white geometric patterns you are wearing.

Number 2 is a crystal ball I have on an obscure alt of mine. A soothsayer to be certain. This item was created by some amazing GM some time ago... and it is absolutely brilliant:

EWAvd>
take ball
You remove a flawless translucent crystal ball from the black oilcloth satchel you are wearing.

EWAvd>
l ball
The translucent crystal ball is flawlessly spherical and smooth. The interior appears dim and cloudy somehow, preventing you from seeing through it.

EWAvd>
peer ball
You stare intently into your flawless translucent crystal ball, attempting to divine meaning from its misty depths...
The mist within the flawless translucent crystal ball takes on a shade of orange as you feel a sense of confidence and courage.
(energy -25)
Roundtime: 10 seconds.


There are maybe 10 scripts with different colors/"feels". Makes things really fun to predict for passers-by.

Number 1... well... that's a mess. It's my favorite and least favorite item in the whole game. It is an item I won at last year's Grummer festival:

a steam-operated bronze contraption

EEngGrBd>
Various gauges and brass tubes cover this odd device. At one end there is a large gaping hole and at the other there is a small button which one could poke. Under some interwoven tubes is a small plaque etched with some faded writing. Overall the device is made with an outstanding degree of workmanship and shows some manner of artistic flair.
You might read the Common Letters written on it.

A year and change later and still have no idea what it does. Huh.

It's the dreaded "It's my game and I'll do what I want!" card. (A gift to Rias from Jirato, to be used on other stubborn GMs.)

Gosh wow...I am particularly partial to a variety of things.
Kyskie made Jilliana an outfit along with a beautiful set of armor that all matches. Along with the outfit is an awesome satchel that would equal to the endless pit.
Jilliana is also partial to a letter a fellow Templar sent her.
Another thing is, of course, the pearl cockatiel she got from this year's Grum Festival. He seems to do just the right thing at the right time to break the tention any time something is discussed in the Jilliana household.
Her kitchen!
Her dream object would be something she would receive from the church when she dies a few hundred more times and nearly dies a few hundred more.

Bryce flatly says, "Just fair warning: If one of those things webs me, I'm going to scream like a girl."
You overhear the following rumor:
"There's an old man that can sometimes be seen walking around with a trunk, rumor has it he takes it to the stables and gets naked in front of the horses before changing clothes from the trunk."
You think to yourself, "Who could that old man be?"

Until today, Skah's favorite item was his roughspun brown wool robe.

But that was before his stained bedsheet with eyeholes, wearable as a ghost costume!

i too have quite a few alts, though few of them have really been playing long enough to acquire truly unique or favored objects, the exceptions are Preiman, who loves his "indigos" a set of indigo ridged leather armor he had made for him, even though he really can't use them anymore because they interfere with his channeling. and Viridiana has a spider headed wooden back scratcher that she loves because of the items association with ritualistic poisonings.

Fayne's of course is her portfolio. It's really just a normal portfolio anyone could get from the Mistral book store, but it has a few drawings in it from different points in time as I was playing her. It really speaks a lot about what her priorities have been over time, and really shows a bit of her character. I really should start making more frequent additions, and I like it so much I may just do the same with another character, altered to fit them of course.
