Subj: Auction #1 Wares

The first of the three artifact auctions has begun! Read over HELP
AUCTIONS if you are unfamiliar with the auction process Aetolia uses.

As usual, any artifacts bought through auction (including the gold
items) cannot be traded it, nor can their power be transferred to any
other item. If you purchase an item for credits, you will have roughly a
week to procure the credits for it, or your character will be shrubbed
until such a time you can provide the credits.

The items in the first auction are as follows:

+------------------------------+
| NEW CREDIT AUCTION ARTIFACTS |
+------------------------------+

A bag of medicine
--------------
Allows the owner to pull up to three random medicines (grimstin, phoenix
heart, bull's eye) from it once per howling.


A portable leyspike
--------------
Once per howling, spawns a lesser focus in the area where it is used.
Can only be used in locations that a focus can normally spawn in.


Wand of the Charmer
--------------
Makes almost any denizen loyal to you for a minute, meaning they will
defend you if you are attacked, but not allowing you to order them
around. Once the spell is broken, the denizen will become aggressively
focused upon you. The spell Will also be broken if you attack the
denizen or use the wand on a different NPC. Cannot be used on NPCs loyal
to a player.


A ring of conversion
--------------
When pointed at an icewall, it will instantly turn that icewall into a
firewall. When pointed at a firewall, it will instantly turn that
firewall into an icewall.


Helm of Command
--------------
Lets you COMMAND (force) people in your room to do stuff. Works exactly
like perform force.
