Joola items are clothing or jewelry items that can have different gems swapped out of them and allow for items to have both a LONG and SHOW description in a single alteration session with a merchant. There are two tiers to Joolas, locked and unlocked. They were first introduced in 2011 by GM Vanah. It is important to note, this script has been known to be added to robe armor and runestaffs.

Analyze

The creator has also provided the following information:
This item can be altered to have a LONG and a SHOW, but the show must accommodate either an inserted gem or an empty socket anywhere the gem is to be mentioned.

The merchant can also change the way the gem is attached.  For example, you can have:
   capped by (a gemstone)
   topped by a carved (gemstone) heart
   set with a series of (gemstone) studs

This item is currently set as follows:
   Description with no gem inset: a moonlight silver silk gown with black tracery
   Description with a gem inset: a moonlight silver silk gown with gemstone tracery

You might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the silver silk gown for you.

Locked

Usage

Verb Gem Status First Third
PUSH No gem You push the heel of your empty hand against a hollow socket on your orase runestaff. As you examine the shallow indentations that the sharp prongs leave, you think that it might work better with a gem in hand. XXX pushes the heel of his empty hand against his orase runestaff.
Gem in hand You push your yellow sunstone into the empty socket on your runestaff and click it into place. XXX pushes his yellow sunstone into an empty socket on his runestaff and clicks it into place.
Gem in item You brush your palm across your orase runestaff and notice that there is already a yellow sunstone within the runestaff. Did you want to pull the sunstone out? XXX passes his hand over the yellow sunstone adorning his orase runestaff.
PULL No gem You trace your fingers along the empty gem socket on your orase runestaff, but there is not a gem within. XXX absently traces his finger along the empty gem socket on his orase runestaff.
Gem in item You carefully pry the yellow sunstone out of your runestaff. XXX carefully pries the yellow sunstone out of his runestaff.
PROD No gem You prod your orase runestaff thoughtfully, considering what gem to put in the empty socket. XXX prods at an empty socket on his orase runestaff with a thoughtful look on his face.
Gem in item You prod at your runestaff, making a few adjustments. When you finish, you have a sanded orase runestaff capped by a claw-ensnared orb. XXX prods his orase runestaff with a thoughtful look on his face.
This will toggle the description of the item from plain appearance to gemmed appearance.

Unlocked

This tier unlocks verbs that will only work when a gem is inserted into the item.

Analyze

This orase runestaff is unlocked.  You sense you can CLEAN, POKE, and TILT it while a gem is inserted.
