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.  research If this has been marked on a page, it's because there was something that probably isn't known, that the person who edited the page thinks could be found out. Perhaps you could figure this thing out, and be famous evermore.  They come pre-consecrated to the deity of the person who ordered them, and can cost anywhere from &&&&&&&&&&+20000 A$50 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 prayer beads—although they can be ordered with more or fewer beads, a potential bonus if you like to move the beads around.

Sales and Discounts

Gemma usually has some materials at discounted prices. She will sometimes mention these during the ordering process, but you can also say discount to prompt her to tell you what she has currently on sale.


   Gemma says: I can currently offer a discount on a gold base and on moonstone beads.
   Gemma says: I currently have too much gold wire, so I can make prayer beads cheaply with it.

Research is needed to find out how frequently her sales change, and how much the discount is.  research If this has been marked on a page, it's because there was something that probably isn't known, that the person who edited the page thinks could be found out.

You must be able to speak Morporkian well enough for Gemma to understand you. The ordering process is done with say buy or say 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 say collect for a reminder.
