Small clay animal

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

A small clay animal is a special piece of pottery created by GM Haliste. If watered consistently, something grows inside of it. If watered for 7 days in a row without fail, it yields a prize. If watered for 14 days in a row without fail, it yields a better prize. Some types of water do not work for watering the animal, so if at first you don't succeed, try water from a different source.

A small clay animal was first featured in the third PlayApartTogether GIFTBOX between May 6 and May 19, 2020. When you looked in the animal-stamped present, you saw a small clay animal. When you picked up the animal, it changed and became a particular type of animal. Here is a list of some of the various types of clay animals that were found:

  • a small clay bear
  • a small clay chimera
  • a small clay mezic
  • a small clay relnak
  • a small clay rolton
  • a small clay sheep
  • a small clay snowcat
  • a small clay tegu
  • a small clay urgh
  • a small clay yeti
  • a small clay weasel

GIFTBOX Messaging

The clay animal requires watering to grow.  Be sure to water it daily until it's finished!  Once you start, you'll want to make sure you continue until it fully blooms!

GM Wyrom Message

Once you start watering it, you won't want to miss a single day until it has fully bloomed! Only start it when you're prepared to visit daily!

Look

If the clay animal belongs to you:

>look my {animal}
Expertly crafted from clay, fired and glazed to a brilliant color of {color}, this small {animal} has a large opening on its head that appears to be filled with fresh dirt.  A thin layer of rhimar, clearly identified by its deep steel-blue color, lines the inside of the animal-shaped pot, and tiny holes have been bored along the bottom.

A small tag on a silver linked chain hangs around the creature's neck, and its mouth is wide open as if prepared to catch or hold something.

If the clay animal does not belong to you:

>look my {animal}
This clay {animal} does not belong to you.

Read

>read my {animal}
In the Common language, it reads:
~~~ FEED ME ~~~

Inspect

>inspect my {animal}
Inspecting that may not be a sound idea.

Analyze

If the clay animal belongs to you:

>ana my {animal}
You analyze your clay {animal} and sense that the creator has provided the following information:
This clay {animal} appears to be some kind of planter, as it is already filled with dirt.

Try as you might, you cannot get a good sense of whether or not the {animal}'s pockets could get any deeper, but you can tell that the {animal} is as light as it can get.

If the clay animal does not belong to you:

>analyze my {animal}
You analyze your clay {animal} and sense that the creator has provided the following information:
This clay {animal} does not belong to you.

Try as you might, you cannot get a good sense of whether or not the {animal}'s pockets could get any deeper, but you can tell that the {animal} is as light as it can get.
