Gem-eater Eisenrucks made their debut during Ebon Gate 2017 at Chisel, Peen and Chamfer, Esq. Based on unlocking tier, eisenrucks can assist with encumbrance, freezing temperatures, foraging or water walking.
LOOKHELD You're holding a brass framed eisenruck with maroon cuirbouilli panels, which appears to be a rigid-sided, back-worn container similar to a backpack. Despite its sturdy, utilitarian design, gaps between its panels provide a glimpse of clockwork enhancements, and small louvered vents are set into several of the eisenruck's flat surfaces. The eisenruck's left strap bears a bronze plate with: Two diamond sockets, which are both open. One ruby socket, which is open. One sapphire socket, which is open. WORN Since the eisenruck is on your back, you can't really get a good look at it. However, its leather-padded shoulder rests and straps are easy to examine. The eisenruck's left strap bears a bronze plate with: Two diamond sockets, one of which is open. One ruby socket, which is closed. One sapphire socket, which is open.
You analyze the brass framed eisenruck and sense that the creator has provided the following information: Looking over the eisenruck and inspecting its finer details, you realize that it will always need to be "a/n (whatever)/(whatever)/eisenruck". So, the item's article and adjective CAN be changed, but "eisenruck" cannot. To insert a gem into the eisenruck, you must be wearing the eisenruck and holding a gem in one hand, then PUSH eisenruck. Note 1: The eisenruck must be worn continuously for a minimum of one day before any of its gem-eating abilities will function. Note 2: When you LOOK at your eisenruck, if a socket is described as "open," then it is ready to have a gem inserted into it. If a socket is described as "closed," then it is in cooldown. Note 3: Although it is not required by the script, this eisenruck is designed to interact with the Gnomish Repair System, which enables the wearer of a scripted Gnomish Repair Belt to alter this eisenruck's appearance to any of several "damaged" descriptions which are pre-stored in the eisenruck's extra text fields. Please keep that in mind if you request an alteration for this item. The "damaged" description texts may also need to be changed by the merchant in order to reflect the changes of your alteration. If you were to play with the brass framed eisenruck, then you'd find that you can analyze, wear, remove, pinch, poke, and push it. PUSH won't do anything if the eisenruck has no gem sockets "unlocked" or added. This is a fully unlocked, Tier 4 eisenruck. This eisenruck is sold OTS with no tier unlocked. SCRIPT NAME: Gem-eater Eisenruck
Gunkweeler says, "The socket choices are: diamond provides a five pound encumbrance reduction for one hour, ruby produces a jet of steam which removes a frostbite effect, sapphire casts the forage spell, and pearl casts water walking. Each socket has a twenty-four hour cooldown, so having a second socket of the same type provides a second use with its own twenty-four hour cooldown. Diamond socket encum reductions stack duration, but do not stack the amount of the reduction."
|WEAR||You swing the eisenruck around behind you and lift it to settle its leather-padded rests on your shoulders, then pull the straps down and hook them to the eisenruck's two sidebars.|
|The eisenruck feels a bit uncomfortable, and you realize that you'll need to wear it 23 hours and 59 minutes longer before it will become fully functional.|
| You push your uncut diamond into the empty socket on your eisenruck, and it clicks into place.
An inner glow fills the diamond briefly, before a spiderweb of fractures flash across its surface with a sharp CRACK, and it turns to dust. Immediately, gears whirr within the eisenruck, and oddly enough, your eisenruck feels a bit lighter.
|As you are about to push the ruby into the eisenruck's socket, you realize you're not really all that chilled. If you wish to trigger the plumes of steam anyway, just push the eisenruck again within 15 seconds.||N/A|
| You push your uncut ruby into the empty socket on your eisenruck, and it clicks into place.
An inner glow fills the ruby briefly, before a spiderweb of fractures flash across its surface with a sharp CRACK, and it turns to dust. Immediately, gears whirr within the eisenruck, and dense plumes of steam gush from the eisenruck's bottom, sides, and lid to envelop you completely! Within seconds you feel like a poached egg, as the cloud begins to evaporate.
Taking a breath of steam-free air, you realize that you weren't really chilled in the first place. Oh well...
