Flowers

From Discworld MUD Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are many places to get flowers, either for sale or free. Flowers can often be smelled, worn, or braided into hair. They tend to wither over time and can not be pickled or dried.

Braid

The braid verb can be used with certain kinds of flowers to add a description line to the targeted character. For example:

She has a bunch of sense and sensibilities neatly braided into her hair.

A maximum of 5 flowers can be braided into a person's hair.

Braiding does not prevent withering.

Usage

The verb can be self-targeted or used socially to braid the hair of others. After braiding a flower it will be removed from your inventory.

braid <object> {in|into} <living> hair 
braid <object> {in|into} my hair 
braid <living> hair with <object> 
braid hair of <living> with <object> 
braid my hair with <object>

While braiding can be social, unbraiding or removeing can only be done to one's self. After unbraiding a flower it will be returned to your inventory.

unbraid <flower(s)> from my hair
remove <flower(s)> from my hair

Eringyas' Surprising Bouquet

Eringyas' Surprising Bouquet is a wizard spell that randomly summons up a bouquet of one of the following: Anemones, baby's breath, bachelor's buttons, bat-flowers, bleeding hearts, camellias, fuchsias, heliotropes, matthiola stocks, moonflowers, oleanders, rain-daisies, sense and sensibilities.

These flowers can be braided into your hair, but not worn. They will eventually become withered.

Flipping coins

If you flip a coin in an area with sufficiently high background magic, there's a chance you can end up with a bouquet of Eringyas' Surprising Bouquet flowers.

The land is lit up by the eerie light of the waning crescent moon.
This is the Hub of the Discworld, the focal point for its powerful standing magic field.  The pale, glowing spire of the Hub dominates the skies, spiralling upwards towards Cori Celesti, the residence of the Disc's selfish and generally self-centred Gods.  The spire seems to emit a low hum, no doubt resonating with the strong magical vibrations in the area.  Glaciers stretch out in all directions.  Very close to the east rises the towering spire of the Hub.
It is a colder than a brass monkey secundus summer's night with almost no wind and medium cloud cover.
There are four obvious exits: climb north, climb east, climb south and climb west.
A bunch of camellias is on the ground.

That is, however, only one of many results.

Gathering

In some places, in some seasons, you can gather flowers.research
