(See also HELP TAILORING DESIGN, HELP JEWELLERY DESIGN, HELP COOKING DESIGN,
HELP FURNISHING DESIGN, and HELP DESIGN SHARING)

Sketches, Patterns, Schematics, Recipes, Blueprints, and Designs!
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Blank sketches are what you design a new item on!

Patterns, Schematics, Recipes, and Blueprints are base versions of the item you
want to make, these are copied onto blank sketches to set the item type, and in
some tradeskills, what commodities are required to make it.

A design is created when a sketch is completed, submitted, approved, and paid
for, and is what you use to SEW/CRAFT/FURNISH/COOK your designed item.

Designs are interacted with via the NDS system!

   NDS UNOWNED [V|J|T|C] <match>          - designs without owners.

Ownership in your designs will slowly decay. 

When they run out of time, then your ownership will terminate, and others may
possibly be able to purchase them. Before your ownership expires, you can:

   NEWDESIGN DESTROY <design#>    - to get rid of the design entirely. 
                                    This is permanent and irreversible.
   NEWDESIGN DISOWN <design#> YES - to clear your ownership. 
                                    Then someone else might buy it.
   NEWDESIGN EXTEND <design#>     - to extend your period of ownership. You
                                    will see the fee, but not be charged, at
                                    first.
   NEWDESIGN EXTEND <design#> YES - Pay the gold and extend the period of
                                    ownership.

The extension will always extend by a fixed amount, up to a certain maximum.

If the standard extension would take the lifetime of your ownership beyond
the limit, then you will be unable to extend the life of your ownership for
now. 

Come back again later, when the life of your ownership will be lower, and
you'll be able to do it. You can continue to do this over and over again
forever. You just can't crank the total at any one time above a certain limit.

The fee is a function of, and somewhat less than, the original pattern or
schematic fee. The fee does not get smaller every time you extend the
lifetime of your ownership. But you can continue to extend the lifetime of your
ownership forever. There is no arbitrary limit to how many times you may do
this.

   NEWDESIGN UNOWNED           - All designs that are not currently owned.
   NEWDESIGN BUY <design#>     - See the cost of an unowned design.
   NEWDESIGN BUY <design#> YES - Purchase an unowned design.
