Toasting Stein

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.

Toasting Steins or Drinkin' Steins were created by GM Palvella and released at Ebon Gate 2016 in the Drinkin' Steins shop, sold and customized by the dwarf Steinmaker Purjus. As of the 2017 move to Caligos Island the steins are available in Down the Gullet.

They hold liquids, and are scripted to let the bearer give a toast. Unlocked steins have "over 30" toasts and can store a custom toast.

Analyze

You analyze your silver stein and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions.

The creator has also provided the following information:
You get the distinct impression that this toasting stein may be altered fairly freely -- it just must make sense as a drink container that you can toast with!  Additionally, it cannot be a drink container that can logically be opened/closed (flask, drinking horn, etc.), as this item is stuck open!

Currently, this stein is Tier 2 (of 2), and you can TILT, PULL, PUSH, and RAISE it.

This stein is currently set with a custom toast for TILT.  Special merchant services may be able to customize the toast wording for you.

Example Messaging

Regardless of the verb used to activate the toast, the messaging essentially is the same:

First person untargeted:

>raise stein
You raise your silver stein upwards in a toast and proclaim:

   "While we are here, let us enjoy this drink so dear, and for those who are not, let them know they'll ne'er be forgot."

First person targeted:

>raise stein at farain
You raise your silver stein in a toast for Farain and proclaim:

    "May you live as long as you want, and never want for as long as you live."

Third person:

Toaster raises his silver stein in a toast and proclaims:

   "While we are here, let us enjoy this drink so dear, and for those who are not, let them know they'll ne'er be forgot."
