KnightWear

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

KnightWear is a series of scripted items that interact with each other, themed for knights/"The joust". They are sold at Rumor Woods.

Per the ANALYZE: "KnightWear items have messaging that sometimes incorporate other worn KnightWear items and specific types of footwear into the messaging. Some messaging also differs when mounted on a Rumor Woods-style horse." Also: "Note: you can only wear 1 per "type" of KnightWear at a time (i.e. you can wear 1 KnightWear belt and 1 KnightWear surcoat at the same time, but you cannot wear 2 KnightWear belts at the same time)."

Item types
  • helm/helmet (cannot have anything indicating it doesn't have a visor)
  • spurs (must stay 'spurs')
  • surcoat
  • belt (must stay 'belt')
  • gauntlets (must stay 'gauntlets')
  • armor
Tiers
  • OTS (Tier 1): WEAR, REMOVE, RUB, and TAP
  • Tier 2 adds: NUDGE, TURN, PUSH, and ATTEND.
Flavors

There are 3 'flavors'/sets of characteristics of KnightWear: Lance (traditional knight), Gaston (self-important/arrogant knight), Monty (clumsy knight). You can ANALYZE your item to see which flavor it is (or if purchasing fresh, the rooms in The Knight Way are named for which flavor is sold in them). Messaging for the flavors is similar at its base, sometimes with only slight differences, sometimes with some more pronounced differences, for all of the verbs EXCEPT RUB (which is the same for all flavors). The messaging that will be used is dependent on the item you're directly acting on -- it uses that item's flavor and tier, even if other Knightwear items of other flavors/tiers are mentioned in it. i.e. you can mix and match flavors and tiers to get the combo that works best for you.

Modifications and Script-Adding:
  • There is "a tall beak-nosed seamstress" in The Knight Way shop that offers a few alternate surcoat designs. This only alters the design/pattern on the surcoat. ASK her about DESIGN or ORDER for more info.
  • There is "a youthful black-haired blacksmith" in the Rumor Woods forge that offers a few options for embellishing your spurs. This only alters the ornamentation/rowels on the spurs. ASK him about DESIGN or ORDER for more info.
  • There is "a paunchy balding apprentice" in the Rumor Woods forge that will add Tier 1 KnightWear helm actions to currently unscripted helms (if the helms are properly built). ASK him about ORDER for more info.
  • There is "a petite copper-haired blacksmith" in the Rumor Woods forge that will add Tier 1 KnightWear armor actions to currently unscripted armor (if the armor is properly built). She can also add Tier 1 KnightWear gauntlets actions to currently unscripted UAC gloves that have the noun 'gauntlets'. ASK her about ORDER for more info.
