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 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.
Gemma seems to change her discounted materials (base and beads), at least once every 24 rw hours.
The discount seems to consistently be half off. You can combine the two discounts and get a set for 1/4 of what it normally would cost. For example, a set with a gold chain and diamond beads would normally cost A$500. If either the gold or the diamond are on sale, the set would cost A$250. If both are on sale, the set will only cost A$125.
You must be able to speak Morporkian well enough for Gemma to understand you.
