>analyze polished teabowl You take a closer look at a polished black agate teabowl inlaid with a sapphire lotus. You analyze the polished teabowl 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: This is a drink container. Erithi Teabowls for General and Funeral Use This teabowl is set for funeral usage. This is a drink container specifically for teabowls. Noun must remain teabowl, but the rest of the base can be altered, and it supports a long and a show. In addition, if it is designed after a dai-specific funeral teabowl per the erithi funeral document, the dai may be set by a merchant to add extra flavor to some of the messaging. You could also request a custom accent/inlay like "amethyst and ivory inlay" as long as it does not contradict the teabowl's current look. The current custom accent is: gemstone inlay. It is tier 1 of 2 and has the following fluff traps: ATTEND, RAISE, and TOUCH. Several fluff traps have different messaging depending on if it is general or funeral use. POKE cycles between general and funeral settings. There may, from time to time, be a rare opportunity to win a custom fluff message for use with your teabowl as well. It activates off HUG and must make sense if the teabowl has liquid or is empty. You can have a first person, third person if not hidden/invisible, and third person if hidden/invisible. You must be holding it for it to work, but the actual text doesn't have to have anything to do with HUG; that is just the activator. This is a delayed service requiring QC. You get no sense of whether or not the teabowl may be further lightened.
