A gem cutter is a device that will cut a gem into a new design following a player-chosen pattern. Specifically, the prefix of the gem will be changed to a <pattern>-<descriptor> <gem> (where <descriptor> can be "-shaped," "-etched," etc.). These items are sold from merchant shops or festivals, sometimes with unique patterns. Players can PUT a gem and pattern in the device, LOOK inside to see the current settings, and TURN the device to cut the gem.
You analyze your <gemcutter> sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions. The creator has also provided the following information: This item may be altered under the following conditions: the gemcutter's form must be something humanoid with a back, a head, and an appendage that can hold something, like a hand, a claw, or paw. It must be made of metal. The gemcutter can have both a long and a show. Only certain patterns made specifically for gemcutters can be used with this item. Try as you might, you cannot get a good sense of whether or not the <gemcutter>'s pockets could get any deeper, but you can tell that the <gemcutter> is as light as it can get
>look in <gemcutter> The <gemcutter> is holding no gem, and there is a <pattern> set in the slot in its back. >put <gem> in my <gemcutter> You carefully place the <gem> into your <gemcutter>. >turn <gemcutter> You wind up your <gemcutter> several times and let it go. The <gemcutter> winds up and begins chiseling away at the gem. Working furiously, steam shoots out of its head, creating a thick cloud. After a moment, the cloud clears and the <gemcutter> brushes away the dust to reveal a perfectly cut jewel. Note: 30 seconds of Roundtime to use!
