Monocle

the monocle functions as a way of both seeing other areas and reading unknown languages. If the original owner of the eye is in the lands, the eye will let you see what they see, when the monocle is worn. The monocle will also let you read the languages known by the original owner of the eye. Each time the monocle is worn and is used to watch, the eyeball degrades. The item is functional and head worn. Despite the lack of information in the locked analysis, it appears PULL works for locked or unlocked.

Analysis

Locked

You analyze your veniom-chained monocle and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "The item has restrictions on changing the noun."

The creator has also provided the following information:
The monocle is currently locked.
The monocle must remain a monocle.  The monocle cannot have a long or a show.
The monocle can be worn and turned.  Wearers of the monocle will be able to glimpse through the eyes of the one whom the eye was parted from.

You get no sense of whether or not the monocle may be further lightened.


Unlocked

You analyze your silver monocle and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "The item has restrictions on changing the noun."

The creator has also provided the following information:
The monocle has been unlocked.
The monocle must remain a monocle.  The monocle cannot have a long or a show.
The monocle can be worn, turned, pulled, and read.  Wearers of the monocle will be able to glimpse through the eyes of the one whom the eye was parted from.
Wearers of the monocle will also find that should they come upon foreign tracts of text, the magic in the eye residing in their monocle will delve into the waking mind of its donor to provide a translation.  This particular magic only works if the one who donated the eye is currently awake and present in the world.

You get no sense of whether or not the monocle may be further lightened.

[Room Name]
(Room Description)
Also here: XXX
Obvious exits: north, south

The dusky purple eye set within the monocle shrivels slightly, and the far-off visions fade from your view.

A cold chill creeps down your back, as if someone is watching you just out of sight. Your empty right eye socket aches a bit.

Eye

Analysis

You analyze your dusky purple eye and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "The item has restrictions on changing the noun."

VERB FIRST
PUSH You carefully place the eye into the monocle, pushing at it gently until it squishes into place.
EAT Oh, ugh, gross. Are you SURE you want to do that?
VERB FIRST THIRD

After crunching the lens and cornea into mush, you swallow and lick your lips. XXX pops a reddened pink albino eye into his mouth and, after some chewing, swallows and licks his lips. Guess there's no accounting for taste.
