  • Hairdresser Updates - styles added

    Lvl 7
    Collected layers of locks flow together over to one side of the head and flip up on the ends. The hair is edged along the back and lays halfway over the ears when wet on the sides.

    A women's long hairstyle where the hair has been pulled to the top of the head into a high pony with the tail cascading down the back in luxurious waves.

    Lvl 8
    A women's hairstyle where the entire left side of the head has been shaved cleanly while the other side plunges down in a lustrous cascade of curls.

    Lvl 9
    Tresses clipped in layers and brought back into a relaxed assembly of curls in the crown and flowing all the way down to rest upon the neckline. Textured bangs blend effortlessly while maximizing the elegance of the style on the wearer.

    Lvl 12
    Weightless and sharply pointed strands are cut with the shortest length at the nape and a gradual lengthening towards the top of the head. Each hair is then individually and methodically styled against its direction of growth in an air of rebelliousness.

    A half up and half down style, daringly elegant and featuring classic lines with a fresh finish. The top is bumped up to a round shape and held together by a band made from a wide strand of the wearer's own hair. The rest of the locks have been gathered into a low-sitting ponytail and swung to the front in a splash of tousled and curly glory.

    Long hair featuring tightly drawn sides with the nape and the crown pulled to the back of the top section before being circularly wrapped and secured with additional tresses. The forward half of the top section is combed forward as a fringe and boasts a sharply pointed shape that rests against the forehead.

    Lvl 13
    A men's hairstyle which is cut into a regular fade with the bangs or fringe left longer than the top.

    Multi-level and multi-dimensional, the top hair is styled into a smooth pouf embellished with a small, french-braided frame. The bangs are taken strictly to the side and tugged behind the ear where they connect with the rest of the tresses that flow playfully downward in delicate spirals.

    Lvl 15
    Scattered, textured layers drape about the crown while trendy, heavy bangs lie in a subtle slant across the forehead. The sides and back of the hair have been clipped up into a fade around the ears to lend a cleaner appearance to the overall style.

    Lvl 18
    Heavy sections of hair are strongly wrapped around each other to lend the impression of a hat upon the head with a ballet of tendrils along the top side. The bangs have been combed over and under the top of the locks with the coup de grace being the willowy coils that stagger below one side of the wearer's shoulders.

    Lvl 19
    gypsy curls:
    A long cut with a clearly delineated horizontal fringe and deeply-textured layers. The glossy, defined curls refract the light into glowing color and shadow patterns to emphasize the visual interest of the look.

    Lvl 20
    An intricate up-style displaying all the energy of a bubbling spring. The hair is wound up into tight, twisting tendrils and secured in coils to provide a very structured, elegant look to the wearer.

    The hair at each temple has been braided back and downward only for the two braids to meet at the back of the head and overlap into an "x", creating two separate braids that are secured at each end.

    Lvl 21
    Typical of the Rinaldi, this is a traditional women's hairstyle consisting of two spiralled buns on either side of the head accompanied by two braids that are wound around the back. Twisted strands of locks laid and layered into different figures and shapes are nestled decoratively into the middle of the plaits to finish off the elaborate look.

          tailor my cushion --> Valid options are: "bench" "couch" "crescent-shaped" "egg-shaped" "floor" "heart-shaped" "hourglass-shaped" "oblong" "octagonal" "oval" "overstuffed" "round" "square" "star-shaped" "tessellated" "tuffeted"

          tailor my rug --> Valid options are: "area" "carpet runner" "crescent-shaped" "egg-shaped" "hall" "heart-shaped" "hearth" "hourglass-shaped" "oblong" "octagonal" "outdoor" "oval" "overstuffed" "round" "square" "stair" "star-shaped" "tessellated"

          Which means no more auto generated shapes. You have the choice now. Enjoy!!


          • Carpenter, Chaise


            • Since we have so many new, and returning players, I'm just going to nudge this to the fore for any that might need it.


              • Pockets have been added to level 10 for seamstresses. The pocket is crafted from a pouch and functions as such.

                Bikini bras and bottoms have been replaced with a pair of breast bags (breast-bags; yes, there is consistent documentation to support this name) and short bloomers (bloomers-short) respectively to be more period-appropriate; these are the closest equivalents for which there are extant garments from that era. They are otherwise unchanged as far as crafting is concerned. They have also been transferred to the current clothing system, so you should be able to add embroideries and other embellishments.

                All house direct import garments have been transferred to the current clothing system. While they still cannot be crafted by seamstresses or tailors, you should be able to add embroideries, beads, gems, et cetera. A number of the garments were modified to make them more period- or region-appropriate. Most of these changes were relatively minor, but a few garments were overhauled entirely.

                • As part of an ongoing project to bring the game back to the original source material, I will be adjusting the clothing--with the exception of custom patterns purchased with tokens--that clothiers can make so that they align more accurately to the Renaissance period (within reason, anyway). I am allowing some wiggle room into the 1700s, primarily because the men's clothing options are already limited relative to the women's options. I will be taking into account the fantasy setting of the game, so garments in this vein (ex: the ranger and saberist dresses) will be modified to fit the period aesthetic as much as possible without losing the overall gist of the garment. Most changes will be limited to the item descriptions, but some things may get overhauled, generally due to their being wildly out-of-period. As I finish categories, I will update this post so that clothiers can modify whatever they need to in their guild pages and/or forum posts.
