The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
You analyze the black lacquer harp and sense that the creator has provided the following information: This instrument may be altered freely according to instrument alteration rules. The musical notes may be altered by a merchant of sufficient skill. Custom musical notes must take the form of a group of inanimate objects, i.e., things that cannot move by themselves. They cannot be moving things or parts of moving things: green clovers are acceptable, but butterflies and butterfly wings are not. The musical notes can only have custom base description, no longs or shows - please refer to ALTER 2 for the proper structure of base descriptions. You get no sense of whether or not the harp may be further lightened.
