Royal Art Museum

I am currently the curator of the art museum in Ankh-Morpork. If you're in town, check out the player-designed exhibitions in the south wing of the ground floor. You can also visit our fan website, http://royal-art-museum.appspot.com for a historical record of player exhibitions.

Making pottery

  • Each mould, stain, or glaze has several tiers of success. The highest-level outcome isn't always the most artistic, so testing is required.
  • You can use multiple colors for those stains that require multiple stages.
  • The stain command has a separate staining and design skill-check.
  • I usually have players choose the main (glaze) color of the item first.
  • Most items require visiting two or more pottery workshops, since each location has a different set of available options.

Example pottery

These are some of my favorite objects that I've crafted. Ask if you're interested in a special item!

Clay flutes

I can make flute-blowpipes too, but I usually make regular flutes. Clay flutes are one of the easier wind instruments to play.

a summer sea blue clay flute

A number of evenly spaced holes runs along the length of this flute which has been lovingly made from clay. It has been decorated deftly with an attractive pattern of sandy white waves, each on the point of breaking, falling one after the other in an unbroken circle. It has been coated with a vivid summer sea blue glaze.
a sun-baked red clay flute

A number of evenly spaced holes runs along the length of this flute which has been lovingly made from clay. The Sun Emperor’s court was once home to the most aesthetically pleasing hummingbirds. Yet their memory pales next to the disarming down white pattern of hummingbirds on this flute. It is covered with a vivid sun-baked red glaze.

Ink wells

The expert result for ink wells in the Sung pottery room is quite attractive. They function as normal ink wells.

a beautiful pale wine gold ink well

This masterpiece ink well has been laboriously crafted from clay and takes the form of an intricate lotus.  The fragile petals have been formed to perfection and the lotus is fully opened in a ceramic suggestion of revealing enlightenment at any moment.  It is covered with a lustrous pale wine gold glaze.

Standing vases

I make standing vases in the Ninja guild pottery room, which is dangerous to access for non-assassins. They can be placed as furniture and can hold about 2 pounds, or about twenty items.

a pleasant white standing vase

Tall and with a flat base, this pleasant vase serves its purpose as a work of art rather than a mere container. A quantum weather butterfly, its wings able to change the world with a single flap, has been stained on the vase in indigo. It is covered with a shiny white glaze.
a pleasant wine-dark standing vase

Tall and with a flat base, this pleasant vase serves its purpose as a work of art rather than a mere container. It has been exquisitely stained with a fetching black and orange wingless dragon floating majestically on a background of clouds. It is covered with a strong wine-dark glaze.

Standing amphoras

Similarly, standing amphoras are made in the Hashishim guild pottery room. They can be placed as furniture and can hold about 2 pounds, or about twenty items.

a beautiful battlefield crimson standing amphora

This beautiful amphora features graceful curves and two attractive handles on either side
of the neck.  It has clearly been crafted by an expert potter as the clay is silky smooth and almost wafer thin; nothing like the common amphora seen in kitchens and storerooms.  A gently sparkling stream coursing along the base of mountains soaring into the heavens, with tiny yet elaborately detailed pearwood trees covering their lower slopes, was stained onto it in moss green and storm-cloud grey with near unparalleled skill.  It is covered with a lustrous battlefield crimson glaze.

Trophies

This was very time consuming to make, due to wanting to get the long description just right. This trophy is on display in the Thieves' Guild Trophy Cabinet.

a fine gold kylix cup

This precisely crafted kylix is almost a piece of art.  Held by its two stately handles, drinking from this fine cup would make anyone feel honoured.  An artistic pattern of black dollar signs adorns the cup.  It is covered with a gleaming gold glaze.

Faith rods

Reference for my faith rods. Happy to lend or sell these (with a few exceptions) to someone who will make use of it!

Lockpicking

See Research:Pick for my research into lockpicking. Many of the hardest pickable locks in the game require exactly 1000 bonus. Note that other locks exist that are either unpickable, or require unrealistic bonuses -- e.g. over 2000.

My covert.lockpick.doors bonus is 950, which can be temporarily boosted to exactly 1000 by stacking black leather gloves (+2 Dex), Mazda's bonus (+1 Dex), Tsortean horse (+2 Int), and intelligence tea (+1 Int).

Charm collecting

See Club/Charm Chasers for details on the charms club! For now, I'm only collecting lockpick charms and coconut charms. I'm happy to help track down charms for other folks.

Notes:

  • "dtest" spins the dial around to locate the click points, and frimbles a handy ruler as well (it may take a bit to get used to reading it).
  • "dtry" is called with three args for the click points, and efficiently tests every combination.

Pottery Aliases

Here are the aliases I use to help with Ozzie's pottery jobs.

shape: throw clay onto wheel;mould clay into $*$ on wheel;get all from wheel
pot: shape $*$ teapot
ph: palm $arg:tongs$ into hands
st: ph brush; stain teapot 1 with $*$; stain teapot 2 with $*$; stain teapot 3 with $*$; stain teapot 4 with $*$; stain teapot 5 with $*$; stain teapot 6 with $*$
gl: nickname $*$ as potcolor; glaze teapot 1 with $*$ glaze; glaze teapot 2 with $*$ glaze; glaze teapot 3 with $*$ glaze; glaze teapot 4 with $*$ glaze; glaze teapot 5 with $*$ glaze; glaze teapot 6 with $*$ glaze; fire my teapots in kiln
gk: get potcolor teapots from kiln;identify them as mypot;put them on rack;look every potcolor mypot on rack;memo list
oz: get every potcolor mypot from rack;n;give them to ozzie;memo add Sto Lat Pottery in 1:00:0

Notes:

  • If fewer than 6 teapots, the extra commands in "st" and "gl" will do nothing, but this is fine.
  • Repeat the "st" command 1, 2 or 3 times depending on the type of stain.
  • Since "gk" checks colors, it only gets finished pots from the kiln.
  • I just "gk" again to see if the pots on the rack have cooled off.
  • Finally, "oz" sets a 1 hour timer for the next job.

Example usage:
