A set of art supplies debuted at Ebon Gate 2020 in the Art Connection. They are scripted props with special messaging. The items and verbiage were sourced from a contest held by GM Valyrka, in concert with the Ta'Illistim Grand Arts Gala 2017.

Portfolio

Analyze

You analyze your black leather portfolio and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "The item has restrictions on changing the noun."

The creator has also provided the following information:

This is a fluff art supply item that uses the verbs PUT and GET.

Alterations are fine, including long and show descriptions, as long as the noun remains portfolio, and it is made from some type of leather or cloth.  This item cannot be worn.

Try as you might, you cannot get a good sense of whether or not the portfolio's pockets could get any deeper, but you can tell that the portfolio is as light as it can get.

Usage

Verb First Third
GET You carefully remove your white paper from one of the sleeves in your black leather portfolio. XXX carefully removes her white paper from one of the sleeves in her black leather portfolio.
