Besides being deepened, label boxes can be altered or unlocked.  [[Unlocked]] boxes will also automatically unlock any label placed into them. Label boxes can be unlocked once.
The small space is surrounded by the wooden plank walls of the wagon and taken up by several surfaces that display wares for sale.  A solid oak counter resides near the entry door, while a set of oak shelves sits beside a curtain that leads further into the shopHanging on the walls are some assorted signs with bold writing, and between them a tall cabinet rests against the wall near a pair of flickering torches.

Labels premiered at Ebon Gate 2012 in the shop Sing Me an Epitaph. The merchants Nyck and Nycolle altered, deepened, or unlocked label boxes and labels. They also bring their wagon The Label Maker to Mist Harbor as a Premium benefit.

Basic Use

Labels can be attached to almost any item, replaced, and removed.

Writing a Label

One only needs a writing implement (quill/stylus) in one hand and a label in the other hand. Labels will hold 100 characters and append a period at the end if you forget it.

  • Using a writing implement, WRITE {message}. You should not write label {message} or the first word on the label will be "label." If you are writing stats and use the + sign, use a semi-colon before the + if the + is the first character of the label (e.g., "WRITE ;+5 to aura bonus, +5 wisdom bonus, persists").
  • Remember to READ your label before doing anything else to make sure it says what you want. CLEAN label to remove what you've already written if you wish to start over or edit the current message.
  • PULL label to remove backing. At this point, you can still CLEAN label to remove what you've written and start over.
  • PUT my label on my (item) to attach the label to the item.
  • READ my (item) to see the label after it is attached.

If you still messed up you can write on a new label and cover up the old one using the same steps.

Replacing a Label

If your item already had a label on it, you will see:

>put my label on my runestaff
The orase runestaff appears to already have a label or writing of some sort.  If you'd like to cover it up with your parchment label please try to attach it again within 30 seconds!

Replacing an old label with a new one causes a permanent loss of the old label; you can not retrieve the old one.

Note: A question mark as the last character gets replaced by a period, but a question mark in the middle of the text seems to be fine.

Removing a Label

One can remove a label from an item using solvent. This is also sold in the label shop.

>get mau
You remove a perfect vultite maul with black rolton fleece wound about its haft from in your leather cloak.
>rub my solv on my mau
The vultite maul appears to have a label or writing of some sort.  If you'd like to remove it with your thick solvent please try to rub it on again within 30 seconds!
>rub my solv on my mau
Using your fingertips, you liberally apply some solvent to your vultite maul and gently rub away the paper stuck to its surface.

Label Boxes

Label enthusiasts can keep their labels in label boxes. Boxes initially come with space for ten labels and can be deepened in increments of 10 to hold 100. Boxes also exist that hold as many as 200, acquired through raffle or other special merchant means.

Besides being deepened, label boxes can be altered or unlocked. Unlocked boxes will also automatically unlock any label placed into them. Label boxes can be unlocked once.

An unlocked box provides the additional options to TILT, TOUCH, and KNOCK the box. It will also add to all labels pulled from it the option to EAT, SMELL/SNIFF, and TOUCH the labels.
