a derelict tavern built into the rock face, [Map Room 29], Lich #26527, go tavern

Wrong Turn Tavern

[Wrong Turn Tavern - 26733]
Built into the rock face, the derelict tavern is relatively bare, with only a handful of slipshod tables and chairs tucked under funnel-shaped glass lamps hanging from the craggy ceiling. Cluttered on one side with six tall stools, a rough-edged oak bar is covered in a milky film, and the other side is entirely bereft of clean glassware and -- perhaps the reason for the general lack of patrons -- liquor. Middling circular holes that serve as windows are cut into the rock and offer a view of the seascape to the east.

Hideaway Cavern

[Hideaway Cavern - 26743]
Rocky walls consisting of dark shale in some areas and limestone in others spread all around in this cozy space. A diminutive worktable, its surface covered in dust and ashes, holds a handful of blades sans hilts, some stained with sanguine and all wrought with cracks through their metal makeup. Clearly ready for display and sale, a separate collection of blades, each finely crafted into a dagger and fully intact, dangles from a braided black rope that splays across the length of the area.
Obvious exits: east
We ask that you refrain from taking anything from the worktable.  Unless you want us to run out of merchandise.
            We suggest that you do not think about how the dead things on the bench are used in the making of said merchandise.
                       Warm Regards, Goblyns and Ghules Enterprises

--------- RITUAL DAGGER ITEM - ANALYZE INFO ---------
This is a Ritual Dagger item. Really, this just means that it has verb traps geared toward performing rituals.
The item is dual-tiered: there are verb tiers, and then there are additional special ability add-ons. Nearly all verb traps allow for targets (use VERB my knife WITH/AT (target)), and there are other factors that will introduce some variety. Currently there are 2 verb tiers and 4 special ability add-ons (permanent scarring, commune, intercession, and sacrificing). Generally, unlocking from Tier 1 to 2 will be offered on occasion as a specialized service; however, the add-ons will be extremely rare and should be considered a pie-in-the-sky type of service.
The Tier 1 verbs on this knife are:
POUR - allows you to coat the dagger in certain specific substances from the food system and some of the old "ritual potion" items; or clean it.
[Cleaning nouns = water, bourbon, whiskey, liquor.]
[Coating nouns = blood, oil, grease, ether, liquid, venom, essence, bile, effluvium, ichor.]
PULL - to draw ritual circles.
POINT - traces a pattern over the skin.
WAVE - to draw patterns that "hang" in the air.
The daggers come in 3 different flavors: default, Arkati, and custom. This knife is set up as default, and it cannot be toggled to the other flavors. The ability to allow toggling will be offered on occasion.
Aesthetic alterations are perfectly acceptable -- the knife must remain a dagger-appropriate item. You are able to have both a long and a show. It is highly recommended that you keep any long descriptions brief.
-----------------------------------------------------
You can tell that the knife is as light as it can get.

Show:
If you were to POINT the knife at someone, you would trace, without leaving a mark, "a jagged pattern" on (target's) neck.

a wooden notice

In the Common language, it reads:
The daggers are for rituals, and though they may involve prayer, they are not specifically tied to the Arkati.
The blood red ruby misericord and the wavy-bladed ritual dagger will not be very useful in combat. The other dagger-based blades are useful in combat and employ an enchant as close to vultite's as is possible for their natural base material.
The sheaths are made for several blade types and are known as Rocket Sheaths. They are worn as follows:
Suede (sanguine) - belt
Leather (tawny) - wrist
Coal Black - arm
Orc hide - shoulder

Hideaway Cavern, Passage

[Hideaway Cavern, Passage - 26744]
Damp and somewhat humid, with a small vent occasionally spurting out grey mist, the area is narrow. More like a passageway than a proper room, it stretches a goodly length, with a slope leading steeply downward at the far end. Black ropes are suspended against both of the longer cavern walls, one hung with varied daggers, the other supporting assorted small sheaths. Fending off complete darkness, funnel-shaped glass lanterns droop down from above at unevenly spaced intervals.

In the Common language, it reads:
The daggers are for best used by those who are religious. If you are not religious, the spirits that roam this world are where you will focus your thoughts.
The warped glass knife and the forked ritual dagger will not be very useful in combat. The other dagger-based blades are useful in combat and employ an enchant as close to vultite's as is possible for their natural base material.
The sheaths are specially made for small blades and are worn as follows:
Blanched - back
Talisman-inset - shoulder
Bloodstained - forearm
Troll hide - upper arm
Leather - thigh
Kidskin - ankle

Hideaway Cavern, Skyfall

[Hideaway Cavern, Skyfall - 26745]
Affording a spectacular view of the mist-filled darkness outside, the cavern wall falls away on one side of an upward slope, completely open to the elements and a precipitous drop-off. The opposite wall expands outward, allowing ample room for the wares draped from multiple hooks and placed atop a long driftwood table. Shoved against the walls are substantial piles of dead kelp, which exude the stench of rotting sea life. Almost indiscernible in a shadowed niche, a warped door bears deep gashes.

Analyze:
This blood potion is intended to be a ritualistic potion of some sort. You can try to POUR, TURN, TILT, DRINK, and MEASURE it.
Some skilled merchants can alter this potion. It can have a long or a show desription, though generally the visible description should match up in some way with its contents. Ideally, the noun is a container (since you are pouring out of it), though in some cases something more generic like "potion" will be acceptable. You should also be explicit with the merchant about what sort of liquid is contained within it. The liquid will always need to make sense within this phrasing: "a circular stain of <liquid descriptor> <liquid noun>" -- and it must be appropriate for pouring out and leaving a visible stain on the ground, such as "blood", "venom," and things of that nature. Note that the <liquid noun> must fit within 15 characters. The <liquid descriptor> can be longer but most merchants willl not allow counts to go too far beyond 15.

a derelict tavern built into the rock face, [Map Room 29], Lich #26527, go tavern

WTT Entry

[Wrong Turn Tavern] RNUM: 26733
Built into the rock face, the derelict tavern is relatively bare, with only a handful of slipshod tables and chairs tucked under funnel-shaped glass lamps hanging from the craggy ceiling. Cluttered on one side with six tall stools, a rough-edged oak bar is covered in a milky film, and the other side is entirely bereft of clean glassware and -- perhaps the reason for the general lack of patrons -- liquor. Middling circular holes that serve as windows are cut into the rock and offer a view of the seascape to the east.

Hideaway Cavern

[Hideaway Cavern]
Rocky walls consisting of dark shale in some areas and limestone in others spread all around in this cozy space. A diminutive worktable, its surface covered in dust and ashes, holds a handful of blades sans hilts, some stained with sanguine and all wrought with cracks through their metal makeup. Clearly ready for display and sale, a separate collection of blades, each finely crafted into a dagger and fully intact, dangles from a braided black rope that splays across the length of the area.
Obvious exits: east
We ask that you refrain from taking anything from the worktable.  Unless you want us to run out of merchandise.
            We suggest that you do not think about how the dead things on the bench are used in the making of said merchandise.

The daggers are for rituals, and though they may involve prayer, they are not specifically tied to the Arkati.

The gold kaiken and the emerald ritual dagger will not be very useful in combat.  The other dagger-based blades are useful in combat and employ an enchant as close to vultite's as is possible for their natural base material.

The sheaths are made for several blade types and are known as Rocket Sheaths.  They are worn as follows:
   Honeyed leather - belt
   Suede - wrist
   Narrow (kidskin) - arm
   Alabaster - shoulder

Passage

[Hideaway Cavern, Passage]
Damp and somewhat humid, with a small vent occasionally spurting out grey mist, the area is narrow. More like a passageway than a proper room, it stretches a goodly length, with a slope leading steeply downward at the far end. Black ropes are suspended against both of the longer cavern walls, one hung with varied daggers, the other supporting assorted small sheaths. Fending off complete darkness, funnel-shaped glass lanterns droop down from above at unevenly spaced intervals.
