Calling cards were created by GM Elidi and debuted at Ebon Gate 2018 in the Beck and Call shop. Personalized cards are created using the purchased case.

Usage

PEER into the case to see the card that it creates. Off-the-shelf cards will only have the first line with the character name. As shown in the analyze, three additional lines can be added. Card cases are sold with 50 charges and can be charged up to 150 charges.

A piece of foraged tree bark (i.e., not from the treasure system) is placed into the calling card case, which is then closed and pushed to create the calling card.

Peering into a small window on the side of your leather card case, you notice it will produce the following card:
   
a smooth vellum calling card
   
 .-~-.-~-.-~.-~-.-~-.-~.-~-.-~-.-~.-~-.-~-.-~ 
               --------------
   
     {Character name including pre- and post-names/titles as set using TITLE (verb)}
   
               --------------
~ This card will self-destruct when dropped. ~
 .-~-.-~-.-~.-~-.-~-.-~.-~-.-~-.-~.-~-.-~-.-~ 

READ the card to see what it says. As stated, dropping the card will make it go poof.

Analyze

You analyze the leather card case and sense that the creator has provided the following information:
************************* Calling Card Case ******************************
The leather card case will allow you to put a piece of foraged tree bark inside and PUSH to create a calling card.  The card will feature your name as displayed (including last name, pre-name and post-name titles) at the time you PUSH the case.  The case can be customized to create a more personal card including, but not limited to, slogans, affiliations, citizenship, and services.
You can PEER at the case to see the card that it produces.
*******************************************************************************
The leather card case currently has 50 charges.  A talented merchant can recharge the case for you.
