Hair baubles, also known as hair beads, are worn in a one's hair and are not seen in the wearer's LOOK description. Once worn, characters can play with their hair. Baubles have four different levels (tiers) of scripts. The tier of a bauble can be determined using ANALYZE, each increasing tier also has all of the verb traps of the tiers below it, new verbs available at each tier will be indicated in blue. Baubles premiered at Ebon Gate 2011 and have been distributed off the shelf several times since. Off the shelf baubles can be unlocked once to Tier 2 by Xerria on Mist Harbor. Fully unlocked baubles have feature altering abilities.

Analyze

You carefully look over the blue-green opal beads and inspect its finer details.  You realize that it will always need to be a bauble or bead, but can probably be constructed of any hard material.  Fabric doesn't seem like the logical material to use on this at all.  If you were to play with the blue-green opal beads, then you'd find that you can analyze, pull, push, tickle, remove, clench, nod, toss, shake, exhale, flip, touch, turn, wrap, unwrap, attend, wear, and weave it.  It is a fully unlocked tier 4 bauble.
