Will'o'wisp

Analyze

The creator has also provided the following information:

This is will-o'-wisp sentient being.  It can have the color changed by a special merchant, and have a SHOW description added, but it cannot change from "a [color] will-o'-wisp".  Color is limited to 15 characters.

Bonding:
In order to unlock certain commands, you must first fully bond to your will-o'-wisp.  To bond, you can:
  FEED the will-o'-wisp certain items.
  INFUSE spirit into the will-o'-wisp.
  ATTEND the will-o'-wisp to play with it.

Mood:
The will-o'-wisp goes through four moods -- annoyed, mischievous/bored, content, and pleased.  Mood will determine how it interacts with certain commands.  Certain commands can cause its mood to improve or worsen, as well as just holding it or interacting with it.  An annoyed will-o'-wisp can injure its handler.

Feeding:
When you use certain commands, it will randomly cause the will-o'-wisp to get hungry, or just by simply holding it or interacting with it.  Consider this the upkeep of the will-o'-wisp.  It is very picky at what it can eat, and truly desires a particular type of item.

Amulet:
The amulet that the will-o'-wisp comes in can be altered, but it must remain a small seed of some sort.  When a will-o'-wisp is inside, the amulet will have idle messaging, but this can be turned off via PROD.  The will-o'-wisp itself cannot have its idle messaging turned off when its handlers is interacting with it.  In the case where one misplaces the amulet, the will-o'-wisp will not be able to leave the handler's inventory and will need to either find the amulet that is misplaced, or get a new amulet.  If neither can be found, you'll need to ASSIST for a replacement.

Commands:
  LOOK/SHOW       - Gives some details on the will-o'-wisp current state.
  GET/PUT         - Can only be placed in a similar empty amulet that the will-o'-wisp came in.

Look

The LOOK will vary depending on the will'o'wisp's bonding level and mood.

The will-o'-wisp is no bigger than your average piece of yabathilium fruit, and glows deep sanguine.  The will-o'-wisp appears to be pleased and lively.  The will-o'-wisp appears to be sated.  Through the deep sanguine corona, an obscured opalescent core is visible.  The deep sanguine will-o'-wisp is fully bonded to you.

Listen

You cup the will-o'-wisp and place it near your ear. It gives off a calm buzz.

Loresong

FIRST THIRD
As your song flows into deep sanguine will-o'-wisp, your vision fades into darkness. When the darkness is lifted, you find yourself floating above the ground. Glancing about, you see numerous will-o'-wisps about, many whizzing past you. You attempt to glide about with your kin, but the connection is severed and everything returns to normal! As XXX sings to the deep sanguine will-o'-wisp, her eyes flutter a glowing deep sanguine hue before returning to normal.
As you continue your song, your vision clouds in an array of deep sanguine hues. You return to the same setting, you can make out a forest with fresh water nearby. You flit over to a group of other will-o'-wisps but can't seem to catch up to them. As you finally get closer, the verse ends and your vision returns to normal. As XXX sings to the deep sanguine will-o'-wisp, she appears to lose her breath.
Your song continues and you once again find yourself in the forest, but something is different this time, you are the only one left. The lush forest is vacant of will-o'-wisps. You begin to panic, and the verse ends! As XXX sings to the deep sanguine will-o'-wisp, her eyes widen with panic!
Before the words fully escape your mouth, you return to your spirit form of the will-o'-wisp. You are trapped inside a seed of some sort. Your new home. Filled with fear, the only thing you can do is hope your fate will end well. The song ends and everything returns to normal. As XXX sings to the deep sanguine will-o'-wisp, she has a look of fear on her face.
