19.10.26 Logosmas Stockings

Each December in Achaea, stockings are available in celebration of Logosmas!

These are hung up and filled overnight by the jolly and magnanimous Ironbeard!

Stockings come in four varieties: Logosmas, Fancy, Grand, and Extravagant, 
with each subsequent tier yielding greater prizes and rewards than the one
before it.

HANG STOCKING FOR ME                       
        - Hang a stocking up for yourself, and it will be filled with a prize
          on the next new day!

HANG STOCKING FOR <adventurer> [ANONYMOUS] 
        - Hang up a stocking for another adventurer, either openly or
          anonymously. The lucky recipient will then be able to open it once
          Ironbeard has been!

STOCKINGS                                   
        - See all of your stockings at a glance.

OPEN STOCKING REGULAR
        - Once filled, open your stocking for the regular stocking prize lists 
          below and no talisman pieces. 
       OR 
OPEN STOCKING TALISMANS
       - Choose to have talisman pieces from the Planes set (see HELP PLANES 
         TALISMANS) factor in as part of your stocking's credit value and be
         a part of your prize pool!
       - NOTE: These will be individual pieces, not caches, with higher tier 
         stockings more likely to reward better quality pieces!	     

Gold and platinum stockings are special and fill up only on Christmas and New
Year's Day, respectively!

STOCKING PRIZES
===============

Each stocking has a target value, and we have a number of prize pools at
different credit thresholds. Your stocking will pick an item from the bracket
it falls into by stocking type, and if your stocking's target value has some
credit value leftover after your bigger prize has been added, this will be
filled from prizes at lower credit thresholds.

A Logosmas Stocking - Base Intended Credit Value: 16
   Group of 5 lucrescent nuts, small clay chip, top hat, elixirs from the 
   Shop of Wonders, pieces for the Planes talisman set if you open for 
   talismans.

A Fancy Stocking - Base Intended Credit Value: 40
   Small clay chip, Mayan crowns, artefact pipes, minipet collection caches,
   phials of shimmering ink, artefact vials, legenddeck sleeves, gaudy golden
   candycanes, handfuls of sparkling snow*, plus items in the above listing if
   intended value is not reached.

A Grand Stocking - Base Intended Credit Value: 150
   Fire pendant, rose thorn, ledolian surcoat, dragonskin quiver, wyrmskin 
   pack, focussing lens, Prosperian attractor, goggles of whitesight, 
   incandescent sigil, pieces for the Planes talisman set if you open for 
   talismans plus items in the above listings above if intended 
   value is not reached.

An Extravagant Stocking - Base Intended Credit Value: 550

   anklet of dashing, anake's hood, mithril spurs, deep red boomerang, pieces 
   for the Planes talisman set if you open for talismans, plus 
   items in the above listings above if intended value is not reached.

There is also a small chance of getting a veil or one of a selection of level 3
statistic artefacts in place of the standard prizes in the extravagant
stockings.

The base intended credit value is the absolute minimum that the contents of a
stocking will be worth, each stocking can definitely be worth more than this
amount.

There is a tier 5, but prizes in this category are only attainable via bonus
stockings and the special golden and platinum stockings that fill on Christmas
and New Year's Day, respectively!

These can contain any of the prizes from tiers 1-4, but also items like the
wand of portals, gems of transmutation, and more.

These high tier prizes are guaranteed if your gold or platinum stocking is 
an extravagant one!

In addition to all of this, gems for the Sceptre of Environments will be awarded as extra prizes that do not count against your stocking's value. See HELP ENVIRONMENT SCEPTRE for all commands and syntaxes!
 
Regular stockings have a chance to give 1 gem, all fancy stockings are guaranteed to contain a gem, grand stockings will hold 4 or more gems, and extravagant will open for 16 or more gems! 

Once again: these gems do not affect the prize value of the stocking.

* The sparkling handful of snow has been added to the stocking prize pool. This has a functional credit value of 50 credits and will turn a/an ring, bracelet, pair of boots, pair of wings, earring, pendant, shield, set of robes, suit of armour, cloak into a special Logosmas version of itself! PUSH SNOW <itemID>. This item can be traded in via the promo tradein command and can be traded to other players.

Some notes:

- Clay chips are able to be won in stockings, these also now tradein for UNBOUND credits.

- Artefacts that are found in stockings (where appropriate) will be the special candycane versions from the LOGOSMAS SHOP.

- Stocking purchases DO give credits to the city if the purchaser belongs to one.

- A gaudy gold candycane has a credit value of 50 credits, can be traded in, and when used (BREAK CANDYCANE OVER <artefact>) will turn a matching artefact into its Logosmas shop version.
