Compartmentalized Quivers were originally teased by GM Avaluka prior to Duskruin in December 2018 and released during that event at Bundle Up in Bloodriven Village. The quivers were sold in belt and shoulder slots and varied by tier. Any compartment not currently in use stores ammo weightlessly.

PULL Note the 2nd sentence is the normal message for removing a single arrow from a bundle, so may be different depending on the bundle. It will also be different if you only have 1 arrow left and it pulls that one out.
First Person In a graceful motion, you reach for the platinum quiver (on your shoulder/at your belt). You remove a single (ammo) from a bundle of (ammo).
Third Person In a graceful motion, XXX reaches towards the platinum quiver (on his/her shoulder OR at his/her belt). XXX removes a single (ammo) from a bundle of (ammo).
PUSH Note that this co-ops the special message from DROP/PUT, so the secondary sentence of this will be different deepending on if the auto-bundle kicks in, if it has to go to a different compartment to bundle, etc.
First Person With a smooth, practiced motion, you reach towards your platinum quiver. You slide (ammo) into your platinum quiver, carefully combining it with (other ammo) already inside. You add (ammo) to your bundle.
Third Person With a smooth, practiced motion, XXX reaches towards (his/her) platinum quiver. XXX slides (ammo) into (his/her) platinum quiver, pausing to combine it with (other ammo) already inside. XXX adds (ammo) to (his/her) (other ammo).
PUT/DROP Current Compartment: this is what happens when the auto-bundle activates and the matching ammo is in the currently active compartment. Note the last sentence is the normal BUNDLE message and will change depending on if you are adding another bundle to another bundle or only adding one arrow.
First Person You slide (ammo) into your platinum quiver, carefully combining it with (other ammo) already inside. You add (ammo) to your bundle.
Third Person XXX slides (ammo) into (his/her) platinum quiver, pausing to combine it with (other ammo) already inside. XXX adds (ammo) to (his/her) (other ammo).
Inactive Compartment: this is what happens when auto-bundle activates, but the compatible ammo is in a different compartment than the one currently active.
First Person You start to spin the glaesine top of your platinum quiver, searching for a place to put (ammo). Suddenly you stop at a compartment containing (other ammo), the gears clicking into place. You slide (ammo) into your platinum quiver, carefully combining it with (other ammo) already inside. You add (ammo) to your bundle. Roundtime: 2 sec.
Third Person XXX starts to spin the glaesine top of (his/her) platinum quiver, searching for a place to put (ammo). Suddenly (he/she) stops at a compartment, the quiver's gears clicking into place. XXX slides (ammo) into (his/her) platinum quiver, pausing to combine it with (other ammo) already inside. XXX adds (ammo) to (his/her) (other ammo).
TOUCH Turning on ammo display. Description changes to: a platinum quiver containing (ammo in current compartment)
First Person You run your hand along the base of your platinum quiver and depress the bottom inward, ensuring that a portion of any ammo inside will show above the rim. The quiver gives a satisfying click noise.
Third Person XXX runs (his/her) hand along the base of (his/her) platinum quiver and depresses the bottom inward, ensuring any ammo inside will show above the rim. The quiver gives a satisfying click noise.
Turning off ammo display.

Third Person XXX runs (his/her) hand along the base of (his/her) platinum quiver and pulls the bottom down further, ensuring that any ammo inside will be hidden from view. The quiver gives a satisfying click noise.
TURN First Person Several clicks sound as you rotate the glaesine top of your platinum quiver, turning to the next [OR a specific] compartment. As the new compartment clicks into place, (ammo)can be seen nestled within [OR it appears to be empty.].Roundtime: 2 sec.
Third Person Several clicks sound as XXX rotates the glaesine top of (his/her) platinum quiver, turning to the next [OR a specific] compartment.

Verb Viewpoint Messaging
CLEAN When the flare display feature is turned on, an additional line may be added depending on the flare of the ammo in the current compartment. For example, this is what happens with PROD feature active and fire-flaring ammo in the quiver for this verb:
First Person The flickering flames surrounding the quiver lick at your fingers, though you don't feel the heat.
Third Person The flickering flames surrounding the quiver lick at XXX's fingers, though don't seem to hurt (him/her).
GATHER NOTE: The 2nd sentence is borrowed from the GATHER verb itself, so it will be different depending on how much ammo you manage to gather. The remaining messaging is essentially the quiver's DROP/PUT verb, so will be different depending if the ammo is placed in an empty compartment, auto-bundled (as this example is) or placed in a different compartment.
First Person You efficiently canvas the area, searching for ammo. You pick up the (ammo), but can find no others like it.

Having gathered all you can, you reach towards your platinum quiver. You slide (ammo) into your platinum quiver, carefully combining it with (other ammo) already inside. You add (ammo) to your bundle. Roundtime: 3 sec.

Third Person XXX efficiently starts to canvas the area, searching for ammo. Having gathered all (he/she) can, XXX reaches towards (his/her) platinum quiver. XXX slides (ammo) into (his/her) platinum quiver, pausing to combine it with (other ammo) already inside. XXX adds (ammo) to (his/her) (other ammo).
GET When the flare display (PROD) is active, an additional message is added at the end. For example, this is the message for when fire-flaring ammo is being removed from the T2 quiver with PROD active:
All The flickering flames surrounding the platinum quiver fizzle and die.
PINCH
Auto-fire
First Person
With lightning-fast reflexes, you reach towards the platinum quiver (on your shoulder/at your belt).  You remove a single (ammo) from (ammo bundle).
Moving with easy grace, you swing the (ammo) into position with your (bow).  You nock (ammo) in your (bow).
You fire (ammo) at a greater burrow orc!
  AS: +458 vs DS: +24 with AvD: +31 + d100 roll: +79 = +544
   ... and hit for 169 points of damage!
   Strike punctures throat and ruins vocal cords!
A greater burrow orc growls one last time and dies.
The (ammo) sticks in a greater burrow orc's neck!
Roundtime: 4 sec.
Third Person
With lightning-fast reflexes, XXX reaches towards the platinum quiver (on his/her shoulder/at his/her belt).  XXX removes a single (ammo) from (ammo bundle).
Moving with easy grace, XXX swings the (ammo) into position with (his/her) (bow).  XXX nocks (ammo) in (his/her) (bow).
XXX fires (ammo) at a greater burrow orc!
  AS: +458 vs DS: +24 with AvD: +31 + d100 roll: +79 = +544
   ... and hits for 169 points of damage!
   Strike punctures throat and ruins vocal cords!
A greater burrow orc growls one last time and dies.
PROD Turning on flare display. Description changes to: a singed platinum quiver wreathed in a halo of flickering flames. NOTE: All messaging in this example is based on fire-flaring ammo being in the quiver at the time. Messaging/description will be different for non-flaring ammo and ammo with other flares and/or blessing.
First Person You depress a cleverly hidden button on the side of your platinum quiver. A subtle humming noise starts up accompanied by a whir of gears. Flickering flames erupt along the length of the platinum quiver.
Third Person XXX depresses a cleverly hidden button on the side of (his/her) platinum quiver. A subtle humming noise starts up accompanied by a whir of gears. Flickering flames erupt along the length of the platinum quiver.
Turning off flare display. NOTE: All messaging in this example is based on fire-flaring ammo being in the quiver at the time. Messaging/description will be different for non-flaring ammo and ammo with other flares and/or blessing.
First Person You depress a cleverly hidden button on the side of your platinum quiver. The subtle humming noise dies down with a final whir of gears. The flickering flames surrounding the platinum quiver fizzle and die.
Third Person XXX depresses a cleverly hidden button on the side of (his/her) platinum quiver. The subtle humming noise dies down with a final whir of gears. The flickering flames surrounding the platinum quiver fizzle and die.
PUSH With the flare display feature active, the messages for this are the same as using DROP/PUT, as it uses the same messaging bar the first sentence.
PUT/DROP These are additional messages added only when the flare display feature is active (PROD). For example, these are messages for adding fire-flaring ammo to the quiver:
Empty Flickering flames erupt along the length of the platinum quiver.
With Ammo A flurry of red-gold sparks erupt into the air.
TURN If the flare display feature (PROD) is active, messages will appear after indicating the special look appearing for the new compartment/disappearing for the old compartment (same as GET/PUT messages.)

Flare/Material/Status Messaging

Each flare type, as well as material if the ammo does not have a flare (wood, metal or bone), or blessed status results in a different long description for the quiver plus different messages for the various verbs.
