Jewelry serves different functions to different cultures around the
world. To some, it is the purest of luxuries. To others, jewelry serves
ceremonial purposes, marks rites of passage, or acts as a badge of rank
or office. Almost universally, however, those who sculpt works of
jewelry are admired and valued for their skills.
To become a professional jewelsmith, you must be trained by the craft
guild of a major city. Go to the craft guild office and BUY JEWELCRAFT
PERMIT. The craft guild assesses a fee of 100 credits for the permit,
which does not expire. Once a licensed jewelsmith, you will have basic
ability in the Jewelcraft miniskill. The more you train in this skill,
the higher quality your products will be.
To craft a piece of jewelry, simply purchase a jewelry mold (either from
the craft guild shop or from a more experienced jewelsmith) and the
components required to make the item as indicated by the mold. Then
CRAFT <mold> to construct your jewelry.
Once you have attained Expert skill in Jewelcraft, you will gain the
coveted ability to design items of your own. This process is a bit more
1) Purchase a blank jewelry design sketch from a craft guild office.
2) Acquire a diagram of the same type as the item you wish to design
(ring, necklace, etc.), then DESIGN <sketch> COPY <diagram>. This
will make a copy of the existing diagram on your blank sketch. DESIGN
<sketch> ERASE will completely erase a sketch, allowing you to start
3) Customize your sketch's appearance when held, when viewed in a room,
and when examined closely:
DESIGN <sketch> APPEARANCE <description>,
DESIGN <sketch> DROPPED <description>,
DESIGN <sketch> EXAMINED <description>.
DESIGN <sketch> EXAMINED EDIT,
DESIGN <sketch> ADD <component>,
DESIGN <sketch> CLEARCOMPONENTS.
4) Take your design sketch to a craft guild office and DESIGN <sketch>
SUBMIT it for evaluation. The craft guild will review your sketch and
make a project mold from it if the design is approved.
5) When the mold is finished, you will be notified by letter that your
mold is ready to pick up. Return to the craft guild office and
DESIGN REQUEST <mold>, using the mold number specified in the letter
from the craft guild. The craft guild charges a fee for the creation
of the mold.
Use DESIGN LIST to list all of the unsubmitted sketches you are holding.
Once you have attained Transcendent skill in Jewelcraft, you will have
the ability to list all diagrams in your inventory with MOLDS.
