Prayer Idol

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.

Prayer Idols are zesty holy items that are occasionally sold at Ebon Gate, such as the ones that were sold in Idol Worship. They also appear to have the "All Mine" script attached, as anyone other than the person who drops the idol is not able to pick it up - which is important since the idols are generally used while on the ground. Someone who attempts to pick up the idol that is not the person to drop it will receive the message, "The idol does not belong to you."

The prayer idols are able to be altered and contain either a long description or a show description.

Analyze

You analyze your golvern drake idol and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "There do not seem to be any specific limitations."

The creator has also provided the following information:
The ability to change the messaging on an ivory and golvern drake idol is extremely limited.

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