19.10.5 Artefact Armour

(see also: HELP ARTEFACTS, HELP ARTEFACT TRANSFERS, HELP ARTEFACT TRADEINS)

Artefacts are special items that can be purchased only with Bound Credits. Unless otherwise stated, artefacts can be purchased in Merentesh's series of shops in Delos. They will reset into your inventory frequently, which means they cannot be loaned out, or stolen(!), for very long. Some only work for the owner. They never decay. They cannot be changed to reset to anyone else's inventory, so do not buy artefacts of any kind if you intend to sell them.

Note About Stacking
-------------------
Artefact effects (for similar artefacts) don't combine or stack. If you have, say, a Collar of Ceylon and a Collar of Agatheis, then only one will boost damage of a magical nature. If you have a Logosian Ring and a Mayan Ring, then only one will increase the value of sipping a health elixir. In general, the best item rules, but there may be exceptions. So don't count on having two artefacts and somehow stacking their effects.


What Are Embrasures, Paragons, And Rondels?
-------------------------------------------
Embrasures are indentations made in a suit of armour that can hold Paragons.

Paragons are artefacts that can be inserted into an empty embrasure, they have various special effects and bonuses.

Rondels are armour pieces that are used with a suit of armour that has one embrasure already added. These will make the armour non-decay, resetting, customisable (via CUSTOMISATION) and will expand the embrasure count (up to a maximum of three embrasures).

How To Make Artefact Armour
---------------------------
Take your suit of decaying, normal armour to a Legendary Armoursmith, ask them to add an EMBRASURE to it (EMBRASURE <armour>). This will cost you commodities (use FORGINGCOMMS EMBRASURE <armour type> to see how many) and give your armour one embrasure. Then purchase a Rondel from the artefact armour shop in Delos and EXPAND <armourID> EMBRASURE WITH <rondelID>.
