Sewing (Tradeskills Help)
The sewing tradeskill is used for sewing and dyeing clothing. In
order to sew, you will need to get yourself a sewing kit and various
sewing implements: needles, thread, buttons. You may also obtain packets
of dye. These four types of items may be stored in your sewing kit, which
autoloads. The items you place in your sewing kit will also autoload
together with it.
Currently the only place where you can obtain these items is a sewing
shop located in Combe. This means that the sewing tradeskill is for now
not available for Evil Race players, unless they are given the necessary
materials by a Free Race player. We are working it to bring it to the
other side, though, so bear with us!
Once you have a sewing kit, you also have access to the 'sew' command.
The sewing kit has full syntax help as well as a list of all manner of
goods which you may sew, such as pants, a shirt, a backpack, or a pocket.
Just type 'sew' without any arguments to view the help.
Most items require a full sheet of material, but some only require a
strip. You may use a sheet of material to sew something that requires
only a strip. Most items can be created with any material, though some
require a particular material, like leather.
Materials can be obtained through certain shops or through harvesting
and weaving materials into sheets.
The sewing tradeskill is important to the sewing process not only as
far as your chance of success is concerned, but as far as the quality of
the item and the size of sewn pockets. You may modify your sewing with
things like 'fancy', 'exquisite', 'embroidered', etc; these modifications
increase the difficulty of the item, but also raise the value.
The sewing tradeskill is also used in the dyeing process. You may dye
almost any article of clothing you sew as well as your sewing materials:
thread, buttons, and material. Dependant on your sewing tradeskill, you
may not dye the cloth as richly as you may wish. Dyes may appear faint,
light, as-is, or bright, in order of least dyed to most.
If you leave the room in which you are working on an item, or wish to
stop working on an item, you may simply 'postpone' your work until later.
You may 'complete' your work at any time.
Tailors and seamstresses with high skill level will be able to sew
their name and surname into their products.
