The stonemason class is able to create furniture, sculptures, and other items from stone.

 

Basic Commands

Stonemasons are able to craft items from blocks of stone.

The standard crafting command syntax is: [verb] [material] into [item]

The crafting verb for stone is chisel. You will need a block of stone and a chisel.

Ex: chisel stone into bench

You can see a full list of items available to you at your skill level in the @craft menu under “Chiseling.”

Level: This is the minimum skill level necessary to craft the item.

Command: This is the command you will put in the [verb] slot to create the item.

Resource: This is the base you will need to create the item. Items with “stone” for the resource are crafted from blocks of stone. Items with anything else for the resource (ex: “pitcher”) are crafted from that base item rather than directly from the stone.

Unit Cost: This is how much stone in pounds (standard blocks of stone are 100 pounds) you will need to create the item. To see how much stone you have left, examine the stone. Items which are made from base items, such as a pitcher, will not have a unit cost.

Pattern: Patterns do not apply to stonemason items at this time.

You can also see a full list which items you can craft from stone by omitting the into [item] portion of the command.

Ex: chisel stone

Valid options are: “ashtray” “basin” “bathtub” “bench” “bookend” “bust” “chalice” “chamber-pot” “checker set” “cherub urn” “chess set” “coffin” “countertop” “door stop” “flower pot” “fountain” “fruit bowl” “game board” “gem” “incense burner”

Note: The list of options will vary based on skill level. The list may be empty if your skill level is not high enough.

You can chisel some items a second time into more specific items. The command syntax is the same. As with the original items, you can see a list of options by omitting the into [item] portion of the command. Likewise, the available options will vary by skill level or may be empty.

Ex: chisel pitcher

Valid options are: “fish-shaped” “fluted” “leaf-shaped” “round” “sleek” “square” “tall” “tulip-shaped”

Ex: chisel pitcher into fluted

Note: The final quality of the item is based on your skill level and the quality of the original stone used. Because the skill level aspect of this calculation is handled with a (virtual) die roll, there may be some variation in the final quality even when crafting from the same block of stone.

 

Advanced Commands

Maker’s Marks

Stonemasons can put a maker’s mark on their items using the brand command.

Ex: brand pitcher

A maker’s mark, if present on an item, can be seen when you examine the item.

You examine your empty sandstone pitcher.

A sandstone pitcher. This vessel is used to hold modest quantities of liquid and comes complete with a sleek curved handle and a narrow, angled spout to use for control in pouring the contents into smaller vessels.

– A small maker’s mark indicates that this item was crafted by Kjell.

The empty sandstone pitcher appears to be of average quality.

 

Engraving

Stonemasons can add engravings to their items. You will gain access to more engraving options at each level.

The engraving command syntax is: [verb] [item] ‘[pattern]

The command for items crafted from stone is engrave.

Ex: engrave pitcher ‘rose

To see a list of engraving options available for an item, omit the ‘[pattern] portion of the command.

Ex: engrave pitcher

Engrave Kjell’s empty sandstone pitcher ‘PATTERN

Your pattern options are: noneanchor, apple blossom, arabesque, autumn leaf, bud, butterfly, celestial, circle, claw, cloud, cloudy mountain, constabulary crest, criss-cross, dahlia, daisy, destrier, dot, dragon, dragonfly, firefly, fish, fist, flame, fleur-de-lis

You can also do a custom engraving using the syntax: engrave my item ‘custom’.

As noted at the bottom of the options list, you can create custom engravings by putting custom for the [pattern].

Ex: engrave pitcher ‘custom

A separate pop-up window will appear for custom engravings (check your browser’s pop-up settings if this does not happen). The length of the custom engraving is determined by your skill level, i.e. stonemasons with a higher skill level can write longer custom engravings.

Enter your engraving into the text box and click the Finish button below.

The formatting for engravings is entirely freeform, and the full sentence will appear as written after the base description of the item.

Ex:

You look at your empty engraved sandstone pitcher.

A sandstone pitcher. The handle of the pitcher has been engraved with a simple geometric square design.

Check your custom submission for errors and be mindful of the period at the end before clicking the Finish button. Once an item has been engraved, you will not be able to make any changes to the engraving.

Please note that there are rules associated with custom submissions across all crafts:

  1. Submissions can have magical/supernatural themes but cannot be magical/supernatural themselves (ie. a painting of a figure that moves around the canvas).
  2. Vulgar/sexually explicit material is forbidden–if the content is not acceptable for a minor, do not submit it! When in doubt, contact staff.
  3. Avoid phrasing that forces the viewer to think or feel a certain way (ie ‘this painting is so beautiful you can’t help but cry’).
  4. Do not reference details of the canvas that do not actually exist, such as a frame.
  5. I understand if I violate these rules, access to this command will be revoked.

If you are unsure about whether or not your custom submission will be in violation of these rules, @assist first. Staff reserves the right to edit or delete items in violation of one or more rules.

 

Combining Items

Stonemasons can create some items that can be combined with others to create a final product, such as an upholstered bench. These final items will often require parts that must be acquired from other characters (ex: upholstery)

The command syntax for combining items is: add [item 1] to [item 2]

Ex: add upholstery to bench

The bench will now show the upholstery in addition to the stone bench crafted by the stonemason when you look at or examine it.

You examine your blue suede and sandstone bench.

A blue suede and sandstone bench . Simple in design, this low sandstone bench has narrow legs and a wide seat. The seat has been padded with button-tufted blue suede held in place by upholstery tacks.

The blue suede and sandstone bench appears to be of average quality.

Note: Not all items can be combined to make a new final product, and combining items may be optional, as is the case for adding upholstery to a bench.
