In Game Description




One skilled in crystals may, from a pouch of gemstones, shape one of many crystals which can be used to store psychic energy.

You can shape a crystal by typing shape <crystal name>

Once shaped, you need to empower the crystal before its properties take effect. By empowering the crystal, you are transferring your own energy into it, and then the crystals uses that energy to influence its environment.

To empower a crystal type empower <crystal name>

Once fully empowered, the crystal will slowly sap on its own energy until it is devoid of power. This takes one Elysium week, at which point it will need re-empowering.

By default, crystals which you shape and empower will give you, and only you, the benefits of a positive crystal i.e. one which heals. At the same time, you are protected against negative crystals i.e. one which drains the life from the room.

You can refocus the crystal by imprinting it, once you know the ability. You can tell it to ignore a specific guild or city, in which case the crystal will treat them exactly like yourself.
