Analyze

You analyze your cream conch shell and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "There do not seem to be any specific limitations."

The creator has also provided the following information:
The shell may be altered as long as it remains a conical type shell with an apex. (ie: conch, whelk, cerith, olive, etc.)  No cockles or flat shells.  At Tier 2, you can customize the color/noun of the creature inside, with some limitation.

Your cream conch shell is currently at Tier 3/3.  Current verbs: EXHALE, LISTEN, LOOK IN, RUB, SHAKE, SPIN, TOUCH, TURN
