Jump to: navigation, search

A long description, or tap description, is a longer alternative to an item's base description, and generally incorperates the item's base description in whole or part in itself. Long descriptions are not limited to the 15/15/15 rule, and generally contain slightly more detail than the item's base description.

Example

Base Description:
a mithril short sword

Long Description:
a fullered mithril short sword with a leather-wrapped grip
