SpriteCloaks, also known as Zodi's winged clothing, are shoulder-worn cloaks or coats with wings attached to the back. They are sold in Zodi's festival shop In Sprite of It All and are unlockable for additional verbs.

Analyze

For an off-the-shelf (locked) SpriteCloak:

>analyze my overcoat
You analyze your pewter wool coat and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions.

The creator has also provided the following information:

This item will ONLY support a 15/15/15 description.  This coat is currently an off-the-shelf version and could be unlocked one more time.  Wings are always organza, but the color can be altered.  These wings are: silver-hued.

Current verbs:  BOW, PINCH, PULL and PUSH.  (Original concept by Zodi)

You might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the pewter wool coat for you or deepen its pockets.

There are no known verbs that will retract the wings, except to REMOVE the cloak. Five minutes after the last verb is used with the SpriteCloak, its wings automatically retract. It looks like this:

1st Person: The silver-hued organza wings on the back of your pewter wool coat retract slowly and collapse against the garment until they are barely visible, blending perfectly with the material.
3rd Person: The silver-hued organza wings on the back of XXXX's pewter wool coat retract slowly and collapse against the garment until they are barely visible, blending perfectly with the material.
