Memories are part of the theme for this year’s Rumor Woods event. Reminders of the past, who has been with us, and who may no longer walk at our side. GM Xayle has been instrumental in helping me to create two items that specifically deal with this theme.

The first is an upgrade on an older item that she, myself, and GM Naos created in 2004. It is called the “slide ring”. Originally, you had to have a merchant attune the item to another player so that you could feel a warm pulse or feel that the other person had turned their ring. All slide rings that are in existence will get 2 additional verbs FLIP and RAISE. (This is not live yet)

We have decided to upgrade this item through an unlock certificate and make it tier 2. Not only that but it has been upgraded to provide memories based on the series it is from. The available series are Significant Other, Parent/Child, Sibling, BFF, Mentor/Mentee, and Brother/Sister-in-arms.

The rings are highly customizable, allowing you to add 4 of your own memories to the device. Later this week, I will start sharing some of what that means.

The band and its unlocks are available in Channeled Affection.

Because I intended to do these in pairs...

Slide Ring

You analyze your leaf-etched band and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

This is a "slide ring", which can be bonded to another person. When you and the bonded person wear one of these rings, you each can trigger a custom message or memory to one another.
An acorn and leaf-etched band of wedded copper and steel is bonded to no one.
If you wish to give this band to someone, you can RAISE it now to bond it to you. You may only ever do this once.
If you wish someone to bond to this ring, then please give it to them and ask that they raise it. This may only ever be done once.
The custom message for the band is not set.
An acorn and leaf-etched band of wedded copper and steel is of the bond-type a Brother/sister-in-arms.
The band is Tier 2 of 2. It has access to the following special verbs: Fidget, Flip**, Pinch, Ponder, Push, Raise*, Spin, Tickle, Thump, and Turn

  • This may only be done once to bond the ring to someone.
    • This may be repeated until the ring is bonded to someone, then it is permanent.

Absently spinning the inner band of your band, your mind wanders as your eyes are captured by the flash of ambient light glinting on its surface Not all scars are so shallow as skin and bone, you realize as you fall into memories of battles passed. Heart swelling, eyes warming, you know that some sacrifices and pledges are soul deep.

You can customize up to four memories.

I have shared all of the Pigments of Memory tattoos.

I do have one final Slide Ring for you. Best Friends.

ponder my band Absently spinning the inner band of your band, your mind wanders as your eyes are captured by the flash of ambient light glinting on its surface. Something in your chest grows tight as you recall years of shared glances, conversations had without a single word spoken, between two people devoted to each other. Not blood, but the family you chose and that chose you in turn.

ponder my band Absently spinning the inner band of your band, your mind wanders as your eyes are captured by the flash of ambient light glinting on its surface. Faces of long-lost friends and family stolen by time drift before your mind's eye like ghosts fading into mist.
