Custom prayer beads can be ordered from Gemma on the south part of the upstairs gallery in the Temple of Small Gods. It is believed that all sets of custom prayer beads are the same weight, regardless of materials, ornamentation, number of beads, or other customisations . They come pre-consecrated to the deity of the person who ordered them, and can cost anywhere from &&&&&&&&&&+20000 for a fairly plain set, to hundreds of dollars for a little more pizzazz, to tens of thousands of dollars for a ridiculously fancy set. They work the same way as the regular sets--although they can be ordered with more or fewer beads, a potential bonus if you like to move the beads around.
You must be able to speak Morporkian well enough for Gemma to understand you. The ordering process is done with 'say'.
say I want to buy something
say I want to place an order
You can always ask to have the options repeated or tell her you want to stop if you wish to start over.
say Can you repeat the options please? say I want to stop ordering
Your custom prayer beads will take time to create; you should be told how long it will take at the end of the ordering process. If you forget to make a note of this, you can always try asking to collect your item
