MoonShard pendant

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

Initially released during the April 2016 Duskruin Arena, this pendant acts like a glamour crystal when used. The pendant itself is useless without the accompanying moon shards found only in the sewers. During the August 2016 run, a new feature was added with bloodrunes that add an additional description to the glamoured affect.

MoonShards

MoonShards were found in the sewers, and are required to complete the MoonShard pendant. They need to be BUNDLEd with appropriate matching MoonShards to create one of four miniature moons based on Liabo, Lornon, Tilaok, and Makiri. They change to cluster, sphere, then a completed moon with each combination and are all a different color for the bundles. The old dwarven archaeologist inside the Underground Temple in the Duskruin Arena exchanged bloodscrip for moonshards (8-20 BS), paying additional for completed moons (40-120 BS), pendants (?) and completed pendants (10k BS).
  • Liabo (white)
    • a jagged white sunstone shard
    • a broken white opal sphere
    • a white dreamstone sliver
    • a thin platinum strip
  • Lornon (grey)
    • a black opal fragment
    • a blood red garnet chunk
    • a coarse grey moonstone shard
    • a thin iron strip
  • Tilaok (fire-hued)
    • a cracked ur-barath stone
    • a broken fire opal chunk
    • a splintered fire agate shard
    • a thin kakore strip
  • Makiri (golden)
    • a lopsided golden moonstone sphere
    • a sharp golden topaz shard
    • a golden glimaerstone nugget
    • a reticulated crystal-edged golvern segment

Analyze

You analyze your Liabo moon and sense that the item cannot be altered in any way.

The creator has also provided the following information:
You have successfully combined all the items necessary to craft a miniature Liabo moon!  You can either keep this finished item, or you can use it in conjunction with the pendant found on the Duskruin grounds.

Usage: SPIN and TOSS

You get no sense of whether or not the moon may be further lightened.

Usage

VERB FIRST THIRD
SPIN You deftly balance the miniature <name> moon on the tip of your forefinger and with the opposite hand, spin it gently. <Colored> radiate outward for the duration of the sphere's rotations and dissipate as the ball ceases spinning and falls into your hand.

XXX tosses his miniature <name> moon into the air. It hovers weightlessly for a moment, a tail of (color) mist in its wake. Slowly, it falls to his waiting hand.


MoonShard Pendant

Upon placing the four completed miniature moons into a four-ringed metal pendant, it will randomly transform into a moon-filled pendant with one of fifteen possible metals, and is a fully functioning glamour crystal. The metal dictates the color of the haze for the glamour, as well as the base and show description of the pendant.

LOOK

Long strands of silver and <metal> have been twisted together in a double rope pattern to create a sturdy, but elegant, neckchain.  Four unembellished rings situated side-by-side dangle from the centermost point of the metal strands.  All four rings contain a small glowing sphere that appears to spin slowly.

Analyze

USAGE: COVER (turn feature off), EXHALE, FIDGET, PROD, RAISE, RUB, and SHAKE

Loresong

Loresong Reaction
After the first few words of your song leave your mouth, your ears go deaf and your vision falls black. Your lips continue to move, but you hear nothing at all, not even your own voice.

Scenery unfolds around you, and you find yourself standing at the base of the DragonSpine Mountains in front of a thin section of the Locksmehr River. The water has a faint tinge of red, and you notice something protruding from its bank. You kneel down and scoop up an oily stone, gazing curiously at its crimson-laced porous surface. In an unfamiliar gravelly voice, you murmur, "The Gods have answered, and they now share with us this gift from the blood ravine." Your breathing slows and your muscles tighten to a point of paralysis. Time seems to speed up as if hundreds of years were passing before your eyes while you remain unable to move. The moons rise and fall in the sky, and hundreds of men and women visit the water's edge only to leave with sacks full of the red flint-like substance. With a blink, time slows and you feel your breathing return to normal as your muscles relax. You glance down to see a dried river bed, and your hand is empty, no longer holding the treasured ur-barath stone.

You continue to sing, but you remain unable to hear your own words. Your surroundings are unfamiliar.

Three participants clothed in ripped cloth and bloodied armor stand before you, their heads bowed in respect. Hundreds of spectators cheer eagerly as they await your confirmation of the triumphant combatants. You glance down and take note of three silver and kelyn pendants in your hand, each filled with four miniature moons. You silently approach the trio, and in a methodical and practiced production, drape a pendant around each participant's neck. The winners fall to their knees as you recite, "Your physical prowess has proven you worthy of this gift from our Gods. Wear it with pride in remembrance of this day...the day you became a true Champion!" The rest of your words are drowned out by the cheering crowds who follow the victors out of the arena and toward a great temple. Black clouds of dust obscure your vision, and all sounds cease. You feel incredibly disoriented.

Words spill across your lips as they've done many times before, but you are still unable to hear your own voice.

A deep ominous rumble echoes in the distance. The ground begins to tremble and shake violently. A heavy downpour soaks the terrain. Suddenly, waves of mud and debris slide across the ground and engulfs the arena. The ground splits open and swallows the surrounding buildings including the sacred temple, suffocating them in a dark ocean of dust and rubble. Tiny particles in the air force you to blink rapidly, but you are unable to see. You shut your eyes tight and rub them with clenched fists, sandy grit scraping across your cornea. You scream out in pain, but are unable to hear your own cries. Darkness surrounds you.

This section has not been added yet; please add to it now!
As the sting in your eyes dissipates, you open your eyes to see an area - empty, overgrown, and with little sign of life. You struggle to bring yourself back to the present.

Standing before the devastated lands, time once again hastens and your body becomes immobilized. Bandits flood the area, structures rise from the ground, smoke billows into the sky -- signs that life has returned to the once ruined land at the blood ravine. Laying atop a small dirt mound, a tiny chunk of ur-barath lies in wait. You try to reach toward the stone, but are still unable to move. With your last bit of energy, you open your mouth and speak, in the same unfamiliar and gravelly voice, "Bloodriven..." With a weak gasp for air, you collapse onto the ground, exhausted.

Bloodrunes

Bloodrunes can be used in conjunction with the Moon-filled Pendant in order alter the appearance of the illusion. Using stones found in the sewers and a chisel, they can be created by carving an ur-barath totem. When a bloodrune is in use, it adds an additional line to the pendant's SHOW description.

Bloodrunes, while in stone form, can beTURNed to prevent them from being sold to the archaeologist NPC. MARK does not work with this item.

LOOK
Long strands of silver and <metal> have been twisted together in a double rope pattern to create a sturdy, but elegant, neckchain.  Four unembellished rings situated side-by-side dangle from the centermost point of the metal strands.  All four rings contain a small glowing sphere that appears to spin slowly.  A bloodrune rests atop the four moons, secured by a luminescent, crimson-hued thread.

Classic

Classic bloodrunes are the most common tier available. When added, the bloodrune adds an additional line to the glamour illusion of the pendant.
Effect: A(n) <rune> look washes over (his/her) face.

Divine

Divine bloodrunes are the second most common tier able to be found in the sewers. Similar to the classic tier, they add a line to the MoonShard pendant's original glamour effect, and align with specific deities. A blood-infused crystal can be used to slightly alter the rune on divine bloodrunes, changing the moonshard pendant's base glamour from saying Champion of <Diety> to either Betrayer or Zealot.
Effect: Interspersed within the dim aura are miniature <item> that float around (him/her). 

Arcane

Arcane bloodrunes are the third tier available, and were initially introduced during the August 2017 Duskruin run. Unlike the classic or divine, arcane bloodrunes change the entire glamour affect of the MoonShard pendant instead of adding a line at the end of it. Blood-infused crystals can be used to change the location in the pendant's glamour from Bloodriven Village to what is the location associated with the rune on the crystal.
Effect: Varies based on rune.

Symbol Meaning Release Cloak Appearance
~OO~ Minotaur August 2016 Rough Leather Cloak Through a <pendant color> haze, <your name>'s features appear transformed into those of a minotaur. Two thick horns protrude from the top of <his/her> head and taper to extreme points. <His|Her> menacing golden eyes appear to flash intermittently but exude a great sense of intelligence.

An overwhelming stench of decay lingers around <him|her>.

Twin pairs of fangs peek out from beneath <his|her> thin lips, and the smoothness of <his|her> skin fades away into sleek scales below <his|her> abdomen, <his|her> lower body tapering into a massive, sinuous tail like that of a snake.
.-'', _( )____ Giant Rat August 2020 Scraggly Rat Fur Cloak Through an <pendant color> haze, <character> features appear to be transformed into those of a giant rat. Dark, scruffy amber fur dominates his pot-bellied form, while beady crystal green eyes gaze over a pointed snout with two very large, white front teeth.

Policy 7 Warning

Posted by Wyrom 2016 Jul 1:

Seems I have to post about a POLICY 7 issue that has come up.

It seems a few of the pendants that went out may have caused a bug that would leave the moon you tried to place inside it still in your hand. If this happened to you, please place an ASSIST and let us know, as well as turn over any moons that didn't physically go into the pendant. As of right now, we know there is one pendant that could still be completed. It's unclear as of right now if anyone used a buggy Makiri moon to complete a pendant. If you did, please tell us.

This also means people should be very leery of purchasing a Makiri moon from another player, should you be wishing to complete that final pendant that is out there. If you have the final Makiri moon and would like to confirm with me how legitimate it is, please email me (using the link to the left). If the golvern segment hasn't been combined, that would also be helpful to let me know.
