Whax doll

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

Introduced in 2016 through Delirium Manor, Whax dolls required characters to search within a dollhouse to find pieces to be combined, similar to MoonShard pendants. The doll itself consists of six parts, torso, right and left arms, right and left legs, and a head, and requires glass bottle of blue ooze (glue) to be considered complete. To fully unlock the doll's abilities, a core needs to be found and attuned to one of the many NPCs that wander the manor, along with a key to turn to activate it. At the June 2017 Return to Delirium Manor event, the dolls were updated to allow for additional features, including eyes, ears, and nose, as well as worn or held item accessories. Whax dolls were created by GM Haliste.

Standard Doll

This is the torso section of a doll.

Usage: (glued doll) DANCE, GROWL, KISS, LOOK, POKE, TURN.  You can also accessorize your doll with pieces found within Delirium Manor.  Hold an accessory in your left hand and a glued doll in your right, and PUSH <accessory>.  Accessory pieces cannot be removed, but they can be overwritten.
Usage: (unglued doll with 6 body parts) DANCE, GROWL, KISS, LOOK, POKE, PULL, and TURN.
Usage: (unfinished doll) DROP (piece ON torso), LOOK, PULL, and TURN

Usage

>drop leg on torso

Attached to the doll you see: a left leg.
There is no core inside the chest cavity.

>turn doll

Assembled (6 parts, not glued)

LOOK

You see an unfinished doll.

Attached to the doll you see: a head, a right arm, a left arm, a right leg, and a left leg.
There is no core inside the chest cavity.

Analyze

This is an unfinished doll.  You can TURN the doll to select a piece, and PULL the doll to remove it.  You can glue your doll together if you have a bottle of blue ooze, but this will seal all the separate pieces together.  LOOK to see what is attached to the doll.

Second portion of the ANALYZE remains the same through the assembly process, save for a cored doll.

Usage

VERB FIRST THIRD
DANCE You hold your unfinished doll out in front of you and tilt it back and forth, causing its arms and legs to flop wildly. Look! It's dancing! XXX holds her unfinished doll out in front of her and tilts it back and forth, causing its arms and legs to flop wildly. Look! It's dancing!
GROWL You curl your upper lip and growl menacingly at your unfinished doll. It seems unimpressed. XXX curls her upper lip and growls menacingly at her unfinished doll.
KISS Holding the doll firmly, you draw it slowly to your lips and kiss the doll gently on its cheek. Aww! Holding it firmly, XXX draws her doll slowly to her lips and kisses it gently on its cheek. Aww!
POKE You poke your finger into the doll's empty chest cavity and wiggle it around. Yep, it's definitely empty! XXX pokes her finger into her doll's empty chest cavity and wiggles it around.
PULL Same as unassembled.
TURN Same as unassembled.

Assembled & Glued

Requires a glass bottle of blue ooze.

Glue

Analyze

This bottle contains some blue ooze that can be used to glue doll pieces together.  It contains one application.  POUR BOTTLE on TORSO to glue your doll pieces together permanently.  You will be unable to remove any pieces once its glued.  This process is FINAL!

Usage

>pour bottle on doll
You tip the glass bottle over until the contents drip out onto your unfinished doll.  Almost with a life of its own, the blue ooze slowly creeps across your doll in search of gaps between the segments.  As the last drop of ooze is absorbed into your doll, the wood smolders in your hand, and a rancid odor of burning fat wafts upward, stinging the inside of your nose.  You close your eyes as you grimace in disgust.

When you open your eyes, you notice that the item in your hand has changed.

Doll

LOOK

You see a jointed wooden doll that has been glued together.  It has no remarkable features and is wearing nothing of note.

There is no core inside the chest cavity.

Analyze

This is a jointed wooden doll.  It has been glued together, evidenced by the lightly blue-tinged substance filling the joint spaces.

Usage

All scripts except TURN are the same as prior to being glued.

VERB FIRST THIRD
TURN You turn the wooden doll over in your hand, and its arms and legs flop noisily against your palm.
You turn the wooden doll over in your hand a few times and scrutinize its structure with a keen eye. Nothing appears to be attached to the doll.
XXX turns her wooden doll over in her hand, and its arms and legs flop noisily against her palm.
XXX turns her wooden doll over in her hand a few times, studying it intently.

Auction Quality Doll

Auction quality dolls require an attuned core and a key. Having both pieces will allow a character to swap places with their doll for a short period of time. Cores are extremely rare finds.

You see a rugged exemplar doll.  It has no remarkable features and is wearing nothing of note.

There is a small pink mass tucked into the doll's chest cavity and a key slot along its back.

Analyze

This exemplar doll is a rare collectible creation found only in Delirium Manor.  It can not be altered, but you can add accessories found within Delirium Manor by holding an accessory in your left hand and your doll in your right hand, and PUSH <accessory>.  Accessories cannot be removed, but they can be overwritten.

Use caution when bringing the doll to life in hostile territory.  Dolls do not like scary creatures.

Usage:  Dance, Growl, Hug, Kiss, Look, Pinch, Poke, and Pull (if you have used a key).

Core

The core allows the doll to be fully functional and also take on the appearance of a wandering NPC in the Manor. WAVE the core at the NPC of choice before adding it to the doll. It is possible to overwrite the NPC description in a filled core by waving it at a new NPC, however once the core has been added to a completed doll, the NPC can not be changed.

Analyze

Pre NPC selection:

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

The creator has also provided the following information:

This core appears to be some kind of energy source for a doll.  It does not appear to be charged.  Find an appropriate visitor at Delirium Manor, WAVE CORE at it, and then INFUSE CORE while inside the private vault.

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

Post NPC selection:

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

The creator has also provided the following information:

This core appears to be some kind of energy source for a doll.  Since it's charged with the life spirit of a frizzy-haired soulslayer, and it has been infused with your energy, it is ready to be inserted into a doll's chest cavity.  If you would rather have something other than a frizzy-haired soulslayer, you can WAVE the core at another visitor, and then INFUSE again.  Your doll will need to be glued together before you will be able to insert the core.

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

Usage

>infuse core
With a deep breath, you gaze intently at your grey core, focusing all of your mental and physical energy toward the cabalist outline deep within the membranous chunk.  Your grey core begins to pulse rapidly and its small chambers begin to open and close.
You feel quite drained.

>put core in doll
Grasping your doll firmly, you shove a membranous grey core with multiple chambers into the empty chest cavity.  The doll jiggles in your hand, and its chest begins to rise and fall, as if it were taking a breath.

Key

These are available at the Delirium Manor Gift Shop and come in four varieties, each lasting different times. While most will disintegrate after each use, permanent ones went out in the feeders and others were permanized at Ebon Gate 2016.

Analyze

This one-time use wooden wind-up key can be used to wind up a rare doll from the Delirium Manor.  Keys cannot be altered.  Keys will last for the following durations:

Wooden: 5 minutes
Brass: 10 minutes
Silver: 20 minutes
Gold: 30 minutes

To use, simply hold your doll and key, and TURN KEY.  NOTE: These keys will not work on partially completed dolls.  You have 5 minutes to PULL out the core once you have wound up your doll.  Failure to do so will cause your doll to unwind.  You will need to use another key to wind it up again.

Usage

>turn key with doll
Inserting the wooden wind-up key into a wide slot on the back of your exemplar doll, you grip firmly and give the key a good twist!  Your wooden wind-up key shatters, but the core inside the doll begins to glow a deep crimson and beat rhythmically, just like a living heart.

[You have 5 minutes to PULL the doll and remove its core to bring it to life!]
