Summoning item

Summoning items are purchased from Rumor Woods and used to muster a character's mount. They are one of multiple items involved with the Mount System. Each type of mount uses a different noun. Currently released mounts include horses, which use reins, and tortoises, which use leads.

Leads

You analyze your yellow hemp leads and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "The item has restrictions on changing the noun."

The creator has also provided the following information:

This is a summoning item and will currently summon: a smooth yellow tortoise, which is a mountable creature that has the following characteristics:

Height: about 2 feet
Face: small
Ears (beak): flat
Body (skin): smooth (NOTE: this sets/changes mount article)
CoatClr (neck): yellow (NOTE: this sets/changes mount adjective)
ManeQrk (scute detail): outlined in beige (Optional)
TailQrk (tail): thin
Unique: None set
Texture (shell): domed
Material (scutes): round

Summoning devices can now be altered as long as the noun does not change.

USAGE:   HOLD (refresh HOME timer - must be in same room), PULL, WAVE (summon mount)

Mounts cannot be:
- summoned while inside.
- ridden inside or in water.
- used while in combat.  You will be knocked off your mount if you are attacked and may be unable to mount the creature for a short time after combat has ended.

Mounts will:
- return to their "home" (either permanent or otherwise) if they are summoned and not mounted within 10 minutes.  (HOLD reins to refresh.)
- return to their "home" (either permanent or otherwise) if they are slapped by the owner/summoner.
- remain in their permanent "home" (if you have purchased a stall) indefinitely.
- return to your side if summoned in an appropriate location, regardless of where you left them.

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