Roses and Gifts

Roses and other Gift Desctags are special items that you can buy for someone you care about, and they will show up at the end of the receiver's description. In addition, with each gift you give, you may attach a short, personal message that will show up on the users screen when it is delivered.

Roses come in five beautiful colors:

Yellow
Red
Purple
White
Black

Each color lasting longer than the last before it wilts. When you buy a rose, it is given to you as a bud and it doesn't bloom until you give it to someone.

Discarding

You cannot give away a Gift Desctag, once it has been given to you. However, you may discard them, should you feel so inclined, by typing:

discard-rose
discard-bouquet
discard-candy-cane
discard-sword
discard-flaming-sword
discard-magic-wand
discard-snug
discard-valentine
discard-valentine-fancy

To check to see how many Roses and other Desctag Gifts you are able to give out, type the info command, and check to see how many you have inactive.

Once you give them to someone, they become activated and can no longer be given out. To give Desctag Gifts without activating them, see the page on transferring items, or secure trade. If you transfer them in that way, the inactive gift they are given will not be shown in the recipient's description, but they will be able to give the gift to others.

Roses can be bought individually or by the dozen. If you have roses of more than one color to give or discard, the following commands apply:

give-red-rose
give-yellow-rose
give-purple-rose
give-white-rose
give-black-rose
