   - This dummy operates like a standard practice dummy, but deadlier.
   - It has a chance to occasionally kill the user.


Partial Completions
--------------------
If you have two or three pieces of a talisman in the death item you can 
TALISMAN COMPLETE PARTIAL <talismanname> to complete it for the remainder
of the bound credit value of the item as it is in the Delosian Talisman shop.

   DOING THIS WILL COMPLETE THE TALISMAN AND BIND IT TO YOU.

Talismans completed in this manner will have an altered tradein that 
reflects its credit worth, including the credit purchased completion.

I.E 
    You have: cruciblebase and cruciblebowl.
    You use TALISMAN COMPLETE PARTIAL CRUCIBLE and pay 500 bound credits.
       This is half the cost of the crucible in the shop because you already
       have half of the pieces.
    You get: a completed soulfire crucible talisman.
    This item has a tradein value of: 346 bound credits.
       This is 2/3rds of 520 credits (The 500 credits paid above, plus your 2
       pieces valued at 10 credits each.)


Collection Bonus!
-----------------

The Death talisman set forms the "Death" collection!
   See COLLECTIONS SHOW DEATH and HELP COLLECTIONS for specifics.

When you acquire an item in the Death Talisman set just: 
   COLLECTION ADD DEATH <item> to add it to your collection.

A bonus item is awarded for collecting all of the talismans in this set! 

A deadfall scythe
   - CULL your foes with this terrifying weapon in hand and send them

     where it is faster.
