Feature Quill was created by GM Elidi. When worn, the quill appears in in the extra feature description field as "tucked behind your ear". These quills were introduced at A Midsummer Night's Festival 2017 in the shop Now is the Write Time. The quill functions as a writing implement for the various types of items that require such (labels, writable books, stationery paper, etc.). This quill can be created by combining a feather with a Quill nib from Ebon Gate in Write Stuff.

Tier 1


You analyze your bluish starling quill and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

This is a quill that can be used for writing on paper.  The quill can be worn behind your ear and will appear as:  A soft bluish starling feather quill tipped with an enruned silvery mithril nib is tucked behind her ear.

You can RUB, TOUCH, TAP, and NUDGE the quill.  This item IS NOT unlocked.

The quill may be altered, but the noun must remain 'quill'.  A talented merchant can customize the look of the quill when worn, but it should be worn behind the ear.

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