A "Mother" of a Promo!

Custom items Are broken into two categories - One includes armor/weapons/face covers. These are items that give a mechanical advantage to a character IG. The second category is for items that are purely for RP purposes and give no mechanical advantages.

But from now until the end of May they are Half Off! The promo pricing for may is now:


Normal Costs:

Weapon/Armor/Cover Cost: 2000rps (Premie), 2500rps (Basic), 3000rps (Free)
A Role-Playing Prop Cost: 1000rps (Premium), 1500 rps (Basic), 2000rps (Freebie).



May Promo Costs:

Weapon/Armor/Cover Cost: 1000rps (Premie), 1250rps (Basic), 1500rps (Free)
A Role-Playing Prop Cost: 500rps (Premium), 750 rps (Basic), 1000rps (Freebie).



(IG costs & pricing remain the same for the promo; only rps costs are halved for this promotion. The normal limit for requests is 1 request filled a month per account under the current policy, but for this month we are allowing one requested promo item per character.)

A brief recap of what is and isn't allowable under policy:

Examples of common "allowable" custom weapons/armor/faceplates:
  • Boison Faceplate
  • Retalq Dagger/Sword/Spear/Axe
  • Boison Left custus/right cestus/mace/spiked-maced, axe, 2haxe, trident, etc.
  • Oval Shield
  • Lorica Squamata
  • A Mask
  • A Hooded Cloak
  • A Hooded Robe
  • An Iron Faceplate that comes with neck protection


Examples of "allowable" custom prop items:
  • Signet rings
  • Sheath/scabbard with custom echo code (see below).
  • A lump of alanti
  • A custom wall decoration like a painting, a giant mirror, a tapestry, etc.
  • A custom piece of furniture like a cabinet that looks like a painting for secret storage.
  • Custom in-a-bowl pet like an albino frog, or mini-eel.
  • Random custom props that have no function but you can't readily get IG like: a mop or broom, a child's doll, a knick-knack, etc.


Examples of generic "custom" features that can be applied to most custom items:
  • Item with a 25% chance to echo something under certain circumstances some of the time. Like a scabbard that echoes when you sheathe/unsheathe a sword.
  • Item that has special/secret prose when you can only see when you search/inspect it.


Examples of things that we do not allow:
  • "Faster" weapons.
  • "Lighter" weapons.
  • "More HP" shields.
  • Any "Glowing" items that give off light without fire.
  • Retalq armor of any kind.
  • Custom Pets "like a re-named dog".
  • Armor/shield/weapon of a different metal than already exists.
  • Pocketed cloaks/pants.
  • A weapon that does a different damage type than it normally would.

(Rule of thumb: If it gives an advantage in combat no one else has or can have, then the answer is automatically no.)
