Special Wishes

top

Special wishes do not fall under the same provisions as full and small wishes. Generally, they supply a one-time benefit with a cost paid either in Primal Energy (PE), Roleplaying Points (RPP), or gold. In many cases, there is no location you can go to in order to acquire a special wish, requiring you to collaborate with either an archwizard or an administrator. Any PE, RPP, or gold spent on a special wish is spent permanently and will not be refunded, even by reincarnation.

Primal Energy Wishes

These PE-based wishes do not fit the template of either small or full wishes, as the benefit they provide is both immediate and non-refundable. Unless otherwise noted, contact an archwizard or administrator to acquire one of these wishes.

Memorize Locations
Cost: 20 PE
Allows you to retain your list of aliased rooms created with the 'memorize' skill when reincarnating. Unlike standard wishes, this effect is permanent and will not be removed by reincarnation.

Guild Dues
Cost: Variable (see below)
Substitutes PE for guild dues when advancing to a primary guild level that requires them. (i.e. level 16-20)

Exp Free Reincarnation
Cost: 50 PE
Reincarnate with no experience penalty.
If one is available, a druid with the skill 'study akashic records' is also capable of providing this wish.

Cash Free Reincarnation
Cost: 100 PE
Reincarnate with no gold cost for training while you have reincarnation experience available.

Exp and Cash Free Reincarnation
Cost: 150 PE
Reincarnate with no experience penalty and no gold cost for training while you have reincarnation experience available.
This version is also known as a 'freinc.'

Roleplaying Wishes

Wishes obtained by spending RPP add flavor to characters. As a rule, taking a roleplaying wish adds only superficial benefits to your character and does not increase their power in any way. Unless otherwise noted, contact an archwizard or administrator to acquire a roleplaying wish.

Allocates one additional line of space for use in writing your character plan.

Typo Message
Cost: 10 RPP

Custom Speech Verbs
