    Subj: September is birthday time!

    September is promising to be a massive month, with Achaea celebrating its 18th birthday! We're not the kind of people to expect presents, so we're flipping things on their head and giving you guys some great gifts and surprises over the course of the month!

    Stay tuned for more updates to the celebrations as we get closer to our actual birthday (on the 17th), but for now, let me cover this month's promo:* A 20% credit bonus on all credits purchased on Achaea.com!

    This bonus stacks with Iron Elite membership for a total of 30% additional credits!*

    For every 100 credits you purchase this month, you'll receive a Mayan Crown! These crowns can be used to purchase special items from the Shop of Wonders in Delos. We wouldn't offer Mayan Crowns without introducing a string of new items to the shop too, so here are the new items:

    A glass poppy: 6 Mayan Crowns- BLOWing this finely crafted glass flower at an adventurer will send them into the embrace of Sleep.- Those with the insomnia defence will be immune to the effects.- This item requires and consumes balance to use.

    A shiny firecracker: 2 Mayan Crowns- A firecracker with a new and unique explosion pattern.- This item will reset to the owner in three minutes after use.

    A golden slingshot: 5 Mayan Crowns- Allows the owner to SLINGSHOT lit firecrackers into the air, allowing any in thearea to see the explosion.

    A mahogany stationery kit: 1 Mayan Crown- The latest (and some might say greatest) incarnation of our Shop of Wonders stationary kits! This version will produce up to five letters embossed with your name and title.- Letters produced by this kit are "a gilt-edged letter".

    A mahogany disc of transformation: 1 Mayan Crown- Will update an existing stationary kit to the mahogany version.- Place the disc inside your stationary kit to transform it.- This item is consumed upon first use.

    A sheaf of ornate letters: 4 Mayan Crowns- Updates any existing stationary kit to produce letters that can be folded into origami shapes.- Place the letters inside your stationary kit to apply this functionality.- Will apply to all new letters generated after the sheaf is used.- TURN <letter> <shape> will fold the letter into one of the following shapes:Pegasus, crane, butterfly, goldfish, dolphin, angel, demon, snake, falcon, mouse, lemming, chimera, fox, dragon, rose, flower, willow, dragonfly, frog, moon, star, sun, tree, duck, horse, heart, wolf, dirk, sword, shield, swan, ship, leaf, fan, fish, whale, shark, octopus, kraken, stag, or phoenix.- The recipient will need to TURN the letter to unfold and read it.

    A ruby perfume bottle: 2 Mayan Crowns

    A golden cologne bottle: 2 Mayan Crowns- These fragrance bottles will allow the owner to SPRAY a letter, imbuing it with thescent in the bottle.- Perfume is a fragrance of vanilla musk, jacaranda, and jasmine.- Cologne is a fragrance of citrus, bergamot, sandalwood, and exotic spices.

    Crafter's strap: 1 Mayan Crown- Expands the capacity of a crafter's folder or portfolio by 25 designs.- ATTACH <strap> TO <folder|portfolio> to use.- Item is consumed upon use.- For adventurers with multiple crafter's folders or portfolios, they may CONSOLIDATE FOLDERS <target folder or portfolio> to make a single item with the consolidated capacity.

    Cakes: 1 Mayan Crown- Celebratory cakes that can be set down and SLICE CAKE to carve off a piece. Each cake has 8 slices and is automatically refilled once per Achaean day (RL hour).- Options for cakes are:Wedding, chocolate, frosted lemon, sponge, and birthday.

    A handsome clay effigy: 2 Mayan Crowns

    - Transforms your ship crew into entirely new creatures. Works on Swashbucklers, Shipmates, Cooks, Chefs, and Cabin boys. While the goblinoid is self-explanatory, the voluptuous effigy will transform your crew into sultry seafaring wenches, while the handsome effigy will outfit your crew as sun-kissed dreamboats (Fabio, eat your heart out).- Drop on the deck of your ship to activate. Will transform the crew in the midnight hour.- Item is consumed upon use.- Effect will last until replaced with a different effigy or the crew dies.

    The stock of the Shop of Wonders is ever-changing, and we'll be discontinuing some of the existing wares on September 10. If you're itching to pick up any of the legacy items (listed in HELP SHOP OF WONDERS), you'll want to get in quick.

    Talk about an interesting addition to the shop of wonders! Those like me who are... well broke. Saving up for one of these will be a bit of a pain. I just hope I can manage something before they're discontinued. Wahh

    So... Mayan crowns are a bit of a craze right now. Prices are skyrocketing for them - which is why most of us without much are either weeping or busting our asses off to get some and buy the limited stuff.

    Nothing personally interests me in this sale. The vellum is tempting though, but I have too much to save up for as is. Innocence

    Why must the gods (wonderful staff) torment us? Depressed
