Warpaint is a warrior-only command used before combat.


Acquisition

Warpaint can be learned at 25 levels of crafts.arts.painting from a guild instructor or from another player who has the command.

Syntax

warpaint <warrior> {with|using} <paint> drawing random                     
warpaint <warrior> {with|using} <paint> drawing <design>                  
warpaint <warrior> {with|using} <paint> 
warpaint remove [paint from] <warrior> 
alias .warpaints <design>;<design>;<design>

Effect

If successful, you will see "The beast stirs within you, and you feel the urge to let loose a scream.", and it will make your warcry command display this line just before firing: "A primal instinct adds extra weight to your cry.". If it goes wrong you get the message "You feel a bit less fierce", and it will make you hesitate before warcrying.research

PK testing has indicated that warpaint does make warcry reduce your opponent's bonuses further than without the paint, although the exact mathematics behind this are currently unknown; likewise, it is unknown if warpaint will allow you to avoid getting sniggered at.

It also adds a line to your description:

Her face is [adjective] decorated with <design> in <colour> paint.

Lastly, while your warpaint is on and you are in combat, you regenerate an additional 3 gp every 4th heartbeat, or +.75 gp/heartbeat.

Notes

You can warpaint warrior classed NPCs (warriors, old ladies, crows, watchmen, etc) for TMing or just playing around.

It uses 20 craft gp.

Any face covering, such as a mask or some helmets, will prevent you from painting your face and must be removed first.

It requires paint. A tin of paint (1 quart) has enough paint in it for fifty uses of the command.
