Curio

Curios are special items that must be pieced together and, when completed, might be carried, worn or placed in a manse. Pieces often come from quests or promotional events. On top of the benefits of each individual completed curio, many curios provide an additional power when one completes all the curios in a collection.

Trade in curio pieces among adventurers is very common and facilitated by the CURIOMARKET command.

General Curio Collections

Most of the earliest curios fit a pattern of being part of a themed collection of 4: a Magic Item curio, a Damage Resistance curio, a Damage Enhancement curio and a Travel curio.

  • Magic Item curios are enchantable like jewelry but can hold up to 200 charges.
  • Damage Resistance curios may either grant 1/7 resistance to each of two damage types or 2/7 in one damage type.
    • Only one Damage Resistance curio may be active at a time.
  • Damage Enhancement curios may either grant 1/7 buff for each of two damage types or some number for one damage type.
    • Only one Damage Enhancement curio may be active at a time.
  • Travel curios grant +1 celerity when in the pertinent environment.
    • All travel curios in one's inventory are active at all times.

Each of these collections also has a collection power that teleports to a thematic destination.
