Variable Expression

Unopened locket analyze:

The creator has also provided the following information:
This is the "Variable Expression" version of a portrait locket. The following may be altered by a willing merchant: the base (15/15/15); a long description; the picture that is visible inside of the locket when it is open; the outside surface (this will always be preceded by the words, "The outside of the locket is"); and the read. None of these aspects may contradict one another.

To create a portrait of yourself in the locket, simply OPEN it while it is in your right hand. Once the portrait is made, you cannot alter the picture without the help of a willing merchant. Bear in mind that when the initial portrait is made of someone using this locket, it will show him or her as a haughty person. Some merchants may be willing to change the initial portrait "personality" (prior to the portrait being taken) for you (options are: curmudgeon, giggly, evil, haughty, joyful/adventurous, flirt, moody, confident, triumphant, happy drunk).

Currently you are able to COVER, OPEN, and CLOSE the locket. This locket may be unlocked further by a very small handful of merchants.

A small handful of merchants may be able and willing to attune this locket to a beloved.

You might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the dark steel locket for you or deepen its pockets.

Attuned & Unlocked Locket Analyze:

You analyze your dark steel locket and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions.

The creator has also provided the following information:
This is the "Variable Expression" version of a portrait locket.  The following may be altered by a willing merchant:  the base (15/15/15); a long description; the picture that is visible inside of the locket when it is open; the outside surface (this will always be preceded by the words, "The outside of the locket is"); and the read (though a whisper from your beloved's special item will overwrite whatever a merchant inscribes here).  None of these aspects may contradict one another.  Some merchants may be willing to change the locket's "personality" (options are: curmudgeon, giggly, evil, haughty, joyful/adventurous, flirt, moody, confident, triumphant, happy drunk, fear).

Currently you are able to GAZE, WHISPER, KISS, RUB, COVER, OPEN, and CLOSE the locket.  Some of the interactions of RUB, GAZE, and WHISPER are based on the "personality" of the locket, which is currently set to a flirt.

This locket is currently attuned to you as the owner, and when you COVER it, you will be able to think of your beloved, Amaurn.  If your beloved also has a similarly attuned item, then he or she will know when you are doing this!  When you are both wearing your special items [both must be unlocked - you will know if both lockets get this message when analyzing], KISS indicates that you are thinking of one another, and WHISPER will allow you to magically inscribe a message on your beloved's special item.  (For help with WHISPER: your new whispered inscription will overwrite any current inscription or reading material on your beloved's special item; you will not be able to inscribe a new message for 24 hours; you are limited to 150 characters; and the syntax is WHISPER [MY] LOCKET (MESSAGE).)  Only a handful of merchants are able to change the attunement on this item.

You might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the dark steel locket for you or deepen its pockets.


Personalities

The portrait generated is based on what the locket personality is set to at the time it is first OPENed. A merchant can change the personality after the locket portrait is generated without changing the portrait itself. Due to this, you can have a locket with the portrait of one personality and verbs of a different personality. This is particularly handy when the person in the locket has a very different personality than the eventual owner of the locket.

Curmudgeon

portrait Stuck into the red gold locket, you see an incredibly detailed portrait of a half elf. Under her hip-length, raven black hair, her brow has darkened and, she is frowning. Through velvet black eyes, she stares out at you moodily. Clearly, she doesn't like anything about her day, least of all having her portrait painted. As if taking a cue from her, the sky behind her is painted a foreboding grey color, streaked with rain-filled, roiling clouds.
rub Entertaining bad-tempered thoughts, you idly swirl your finger over the outer surface of your locket.
gaze With your hand on your locket, you gaze around, making no effort to hide how much you'd rather be anywhere other than here right now.
whisper Twirling your locket around, you quietly whisper words of discontent.

Giggly

portrait Tucked into the heart-shaped locket, you see an intricately detailed portrait of a half elf. Her velvet black eyes have a twinkle in them, and she is smiling happily at you. Her hip-length, raven black hair picks up highlights from a cheerily shining sun in a background of blue skies and green trees. It looks like such a perfect setting for a picnic that you can almost hear sounds of giggling and singing.
rub Entertaining a plethora of delightful ideas, you idly swirl your finger over the outer surface of your locket, which is a doe in the forest carved in jade.
gaze With your hand on your locket, you gaze around happily and giggle a little to yourself.
whisper

Evil

portrait Mounted in the rune-shaped jet locket, you see a carefully crafted portrait of a half elf. A chill wind whips through a landscape alight with either lightning or flame. Her hip-length, raven black hair frames velvet black eyes that hold nothing but hostility and aggression. She looks as if she has been interrupted while daydreaming about pulling the wings off hummingbirds. High above her, a stark black sky is marked by cold pinpricks of starlight.

Haughty

portrait Mounted in the brushed silver locket, you see a masterfully-painted portrait of a half elf. She stands in an affected pose, every fold of her clothing in place. Hip-length, raven black hair frames velvet black eyes whose expression clearly states that she is the Mistress of anything or anyone that has the good fortune to fall under her influence. One eyebrow is raised in a skeptical look, and her lips are curled into a condescending smirk.
rub Entertaining supercilious thoughts, you idly swirl your finger over the outer surface of your locket.
gaze With your hand on your locket, you gaze around with a supercilious expression.
whisper Twirling your locket around, you quietly whisper a phrase dripping in contempt.

Joyful/Adventurous

portrait Tucked into the brushed silver locket is an artfully painted portrait of a <race> at sea. She leans over the railing of a ship, her <hair length>, <hair color> hair whipping about in the wind. Her head is thrown back as she laughs joyfully, and her <eye color> eyes sparkle with the pleasure of embarking on a new adventure. Backing her finely formed likeness, a flock of sea birds rises from the deep blue ocean's calm surface, winging toward the pale blue sky.
rub Entertaining thoughts of embarking on a new adventure, you idly swirl your finger over the outer surface of your locket.

Flirt

portrait Set into the dark steel locket is a finely detailed seaside portrait of a half elf with hip-length, raven black hair. Shaded by a brightly colored umbrella, she lounges on a white, sandy beach, her toes idly swirling the sand. Her velvet black eyes peer up coyly, her eyelashes fluttering, as her lips curl into a flirtatious smile that is as dazzling as the aquarmarine [sic] oceanscape surrounding her.
rub Entertaining coquettish thoughts, you idly swirl your finger over the outer surface of your locket.
gaze With your hand on your locket, you gaze around and wink flirtatiously.
whisper Twirling your locket around, you quietly whisper poetry waxing romantic.

Moody

portrait Firmly inset in the blackened bone locket, the meticulously detailed likeness of a halfling, with long, fire red hair, stares out. Standing tall and straight-backed, hands folded in her lap, her pose oozes self-control. Her expression, however, is openly peevish, as if she is biting her tongue until the exact right moment for unleashing her irritation. Behind her, a dark, stormy sky hovers over a stretch of misty swampland, further enhancing the moody expression in her clear green eyes.

Confident

portrait Confidently standing at the captain's wheel of a massive sailing ship, a <race> with expressive <eye color> eyes and <hair length>, <hair color> hair is the subject of the portrait that is tucked into the brushed silver locket. She stands proudly on the deck, her head held high, with one hand on her hip, the other lightly resting atop the wheel. All around her, the ship is bustling with life, but she appears completely focused on the task at hand.
rub Entertaining bolstering thoughts, you idly swirl your finger over the outer surface of your locket.
gaze With your hand on your locket, you gaze around, pride causing you to holding your head high.

Triumphant

portrait Sweat drips into the <eye color> eyes of a <race> whose likeness occupies the brushed silver locket. Fully engaged in a sword fight, she is in the midst of parrying with the sword in her right hand while simultaneously throwing a dagger from her left hand toward her dueling partner. Blood streaks her <complexion>, <skin color> skin and mats her <hair length>, <hair color> hair, but she clearly has the upper hand based on her triumphant expression.
rub (3rd) Person's expression is exultant as he swirls a finger over the outer surface of his dark steel locket.
gaze With your hand on your locket, you gaze around, the feeling of triumph running through you.
whisper Person pays an inordinate amount of attention to her fang-etched locket as she quietly whispers to it.

Happy Drunk

portrait Jammed into the blackened bone locket is a detailed, though slightly scuffed, portrait of a halfling. Her clear green eyes are bloodshot, her clothing is rumpled and stained, and her long, dark fire red hair is a tangled, matted mess. Her entire person, in fact, is in need of a long, hot bath, though the subject doesn't seem to care, for she smiles broadly, her expression silly. Her hands curl around a large bottle of liquor that she raises up to the sky in a toast.

Fear

portrait Nestled into the blackened bone locket is an elaborate portrait of a halfling under duress. Hands bound in front of her, she exudes a grim determination that is betrayed only by the stark, unadulterated fear in her clear green eyes and the green tinge tinting her freckled, tan skin. A band of halfling pirates take swigs from their rum jugs as they herd the woman toward their ship's plank, which juts out over a turbulent sea.
