[[Crystal amulet]]s are common [[magical item]]s found on [[creature]]s in [[GemStone IV]]. These are the most common items that, when [[WEAR (verb)|worn]] and [[RUB (verb)|rubbed]], allow a character to access the '''[[#ESP (verb)|ESP]]''' thought network, where they can transmit their thoughts on different channels to communicate with other characters by means of the '''[[#THINK (verb)|THINK]]''' verb.

{{TOCright}}[[Crystal amulet]]s are common [[magical item]]s found on [[creature]]s in [[GemStone IV]]. When these amulets are [[WEAR (verb)|worn]], placed inside of an amulet-holder, or held, they allow a character to send their location to another character via the [[ESP|ESP System]] using the syntax {{boldmono|[[THINK (verb)|THINK]] LOCATION <character>}}. Some [[merchant]] shops have jewelry that can hold an amulet for more fashionable access.   
 
 
The ESP network consists of public and private channels with direct messaging capability to other characters on the network. The network is a popular way to communicate [[in character]], particularly during invasions or visits from [[non-player character]]s (NPCs).  Each [[realm]] has its own local channel, and there is a game-wide global channel that is defaulted to be ignored.  To access the global channel, use {{mono|ESP UNIGNORE GLOBAL}} while ESP is active.
 
 
 
Another common way to access ESP is through [[CHE|house]] pins and through the [[Council of Light]]'s [[Sign of Thought]] and [[Guardians of Sunfist]]'s [[Sigil of Contact]] ([[Order of Voln]] members access a Voln-only network with [[Symbol of Thought]]). Some [[merchant]] shops have jewelry that can hold an amulet for more fashionable access.   
 
 
 
Each rub of an ESP-accessing item provides one hour of access; the remaining duration of ESP activation can be seen via [[spell active|SPELL ACTIVE]]. These items usually have limited charges but are cheap to replace. The network can be turned off by removing the activating jewelry, eating [[tkaro root]], or through more unique items.

Crystal amulets are common magical items found on creatures in GemStone IV. When these amulets are worn, placed inside of an amulet-holder, or held, they allow a character to send their location to another character via the ESP System using the syntax THINK LOCATION <character>. Some merchant shops have jewelry that can hold an amulet for more fashionable access.

Crystal Amulet Usage

ANALYZE provides the following information:

>You analyze your crystal amulet and sense that the creator has provided the following information:
The amulet is a crystal amulet which allows you to THINK LOCATION {target} while engaged in ESP.

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

While the amulet is in the character's worn inventory, placed within crystal amulet jewelry, or held in the character's hand, the character may use the amulet to send their location to another individual regardless of any status conditions in effect upon the sending character. Sending the location consumes a charge and the amulet will eventually shatter. The sending character receives the following message upon successful transmission of the location:

You focus on projecting your presence through the crystal amulet and impose your surroundings upon your mind.

The sending character receives the following message when the receiving character is not available:

You open your mind, but do not feel their presence.

This ability has a 30 second cooldown which is reflected in the following messaging:

Straining your mind, you fail to project your presence, having not fully recovered from the last time.

Behind the Scenes

Crystal amulets allowed characters to access the ESP system prior to an overhaul of that system in July 2020.
