Set of octiron and crystal wind chimes
|Set of octiron and crystal wind chimes|
|Musical instruments Information|
|To play, must be...||On ground|
Spired and fretted like some deconstructed and inverted Borogravian castle, this assemblage of tubes - some blown from glass, some carved from crystal in a multitude of swirling colours, and some of octiron - chimes and twinkles in each passing breeze. They hang from a plate of solid octiron, inlaid with glyphs and bearing a dedicatory inscription. Sparkles of octarine light constantly bloom and dance around the chimes. It appears to have something written on it.
You read the set of octiron and crystal wind chimes: Written in flourishing letters: Octavius Semelustrius, Professor of Musicology, set me here on this day the 17th of Grune, Year of the Concussed Ocelot, for the delight and edification of All Wizardry.
(Note that the line about sparkles of octarine light only shows up if you can see octarine.)

Note that the chimes allow you to use "tap" or "ring" as synonyms for "play". They can also be used to "serenade", but not to perform a solo.
