>If you haven't played with this yet do so:

I feel good that these didn't turn out to be a daunting game of find-the-verb.

>RAISE charm

Works once a day, takes all your current mana, and takes you to the nearest major town.

>OPEN charm

This activates charm mood messaging. The messages will stop if you're not holding the charm in your hand and in some rooms with special properties, so people don't become a nuisance at merchants.

>CLOSE charm

Or you can do it yourself!

>SPIN charm

Not just a spinner. Hum dee doo.

>EXHALE charm

This has a bit of a cooldown, but your orb of light can last for a considerable amount of time. You can also shoo it around to places by using WAVE, but only if it's the orb you produced. I dunno, maybe you can have an orb race, or something.

If you haven't played with this yet do so:

RAISE charm
You grasp your lantern charm by its chain and hold its light aloft.

The flame within the lantern builds and brightens, escalating rapidly from bright to blinding. A heady rush overcomes you as the charm's radiance suffuses your flesh and falls, like a glowing veil, over your vision. Heat blossoms within your core, and a soft voice promises, "While hearth and home are firm in your heart, they cannot be more than a breath away from your lungs."

All about you, golden fire dances, and you feel as if you are a part of the flame. Just as you are about to give yourself to the wild euphoria of the light, a gentle but firm presence pulls you back. The flame dims to embers, which become naught but cinders that pirouette away to reveal your changed surroundings. You look around and see...

[Wehnimer's, Treehouse]

-Cost all my mana and wouldn't work again immediately.

[Ed. Third person messaging: Bulla grasps her lantern charm by its chain and holds it aloft.

The flame within the lantern builds and brightens, escalating rapidly from merely bright to blinding. Bulla's entire body is suffused with its golden radiance. A sudden gout of heat is the sole warning before her form vanishes in flames, leaving nothing but cinders behind.]

RUB You gently polish the lantern charm, and experience an odd tingling sensation as the ora under your fingers seems to ripple and change, becoming cold and gelatinous before reforming into a solid silver frame.

-changes the metal. Thus far I've seen copper, bronze, iron, steel, imflass, ora, silver, alum, faenor, laje, cobalt, gold, vultite, invar...

TURN charm
You twist a tiny ratchet lever on the side of the lantern charm, and its green flame flickers for a heartbeat, only to be replaced by a vivid azure flame.

-Changes the flame color. Colors thus far: green, azure, orange, emerald, scarlet, purple, carnelian, rose, viridian, yellow, ivory, celadon, teal, niveous, silver, red, persimmon, golden, violet, aquamarine, crimson, lilac, white...

OPEN charm
As you unshutter your lantern charm, streams of niveous light spill forth.

CLOSE charm
You fiddle with a switch on the side of your lantern charm and its shutters close, concealing the niveous light source within.

SPIN charm
You spin your lantern charm on its chain, and its niveous light shines upon you.

SPIN charm
You twirl your lantern charm about on its chain, causing the metal surfaces to glint merrily. Without warning, a beam of golden light arcs out and shines upon Person.

EXHALE charm (when open)
Raising your lantern charm before your face, you blow a thin stream of air into the flickering flames. A tight sensation tugs at your chest, as if something more essential than air is being fed into the fire. Sparks lick off of the niveous light within the lantern, spiraling about in the air before coalescing into a floating orb of niveous flame.
>
Flickering tongues of fire erupt from the surface of a floating orb of niveous flame as its light steadies.

You also see a floating orb of niveous flame

l flame
Soft light washes off of the translucent orb, which is wreathed in niveous flames. The little globe of fire wobbles about, washing the surroundings in niveous light as it drifts like an aimless vagrant through the air overhead.
>
Motes of green light wash through the center of the floating niveous flame, multiplying and spiraling outward until they have completely overwhelmed its hue with their own.

The shutter on your lantern charm sluggishly pulls itself closed, obscuring its niveous light.
>
The flame wobbles sullenly before going out in a tiny explosion of light.

-Creates an orb of flame, didn't have much time to play with it and it can't be used again right away.

Anyone finds anything I missed feel free to add!
