Analyze

You analyze your orase runestaff and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

This is the Globus Elanthias runestaff, or more commonly the Soul Eater runestaff.  It has spectral shapes as its flare type.  There is a skull made of carnelian that is wedged into the top of the length of orase, and it can be customized in the following way:

Globe Type: Globe, Orb, Sphere, Spheroid, Ball, Skull
Globe Material: Glaesine, Glass, Crystalline, Obsidian, Clear Gemstone

An orase runestaff can be altered with a long or a show description.  If it has a long description, then it will always have a show of "Firmly wedged at the top of the length of orase is carnelian skull."  However, if it does not have a show description, then it will always have a show of "Sinew and rawhide bind the top of the length of orase to create a cradle for carnelian skull that rests within it."  If you are designing your own show, you may ask your alterer to include how the skull is wedged into the runestaff, but it must always be at the top.

It is currently 4 of 4 Tiers.

With the following verbs available: Attend*, Bow, Chuckle, Clean, Gaze**, Greet, Nudge, Point, Prod, Raise, Rub***, Tap****, and Wave
