Item Customization

Custom items and equipment are available for those who have purchased a Shop Vendor for their player house. While the idea of creating personalized equipment is exciting, bear in mind that created items are not able to be tailored to be as powerful as equipment that exists out there in the world, keeping exploration and discovery a prime requisite for establishing the 'best' equipment for anyone out there.


All customized objects, regardless of how weak or powerful they are, will require a fee of 1000g and 1 Restring Token. This is separate from the purchase price to buy it from a player's shop (see below). Additional fees may be required if customization aspects are requested and granted outside the boundaries that have been listed on this page.




How It Works

Equipment customization works on a 'point'-based system. More 'points' are allowed for higher-level equipment, and each 'point' can be applied to a piece of equipment to customize it in numerous ways.


Each level range of equipment has two different types of 'points': FIXED POINTS and TRADEOFF POINTS.


Fixed Points are simply points that you can exchange for a variety of statistics and affects to be applied to your equipment, within the restrictions given for each level range (see listings below).


Statistical additions can be applied as follows (1 point exchanged for one 'boost' of one of the following):


  • 1 point of STR, DEX, CON, WIS, INT, or DAMROLL
  • 2 HITROLL
  • 50 of either HP or MANA
  • 75 MOV
  • Minus 3 AC rating



Affect additions can be applied as follows (in varying point-exchange amounts):


  • Resistance [Requires 3 points each] (fire, cold, electricity, acid, poison, holy, energy, mental, water, light, sound, wood, silver, iron, wind, earth, dark)


  • Weapon [Requires 1 point each] (fire/frost/vampiric/shocking/poison/holy/unholy/acidic/disrupting/earthy/soulblade damage, measuring/loud/mystery unique effects)


  • Extra [Requires 1 point each] (nodestroy [drink containers don't poof when used up], adhesive, nochk [items don't require an artifice check to be used successfully], noexplode [wands/charged items don't poof when used up])


  • Extra2 [Do not require points] (glow, hum, magic, anticlass, antigender, antirace)


  • Appliables [Requires 3 points each] (Swimming, thorn/ice/crystal shield)


Tradeoff Points work the same way, but for each tradeoff point you exchange, a negative statistic of equal caliber needs to also be applied.

For example, if you used a tradeoff point to apply +1 STR to a sword, you would need to add a reduction of something elsewhere, as well (-1 CON/DEX/WIS/INT, -50 HP/MANA, -75 MOV [Adding +'s to AC is not allowed as a tradeoff in this instance]).

Restrictions & Allowances

The following level ranges each have their own maximum-allowed points and restrictions otherwise (note that note all tradeoff points HAVE to be used; they are there for those who want them), as well as the 'purchase price' that will be given to the item once it is placed in a player shop (Waist-slot items are an exception; see bottom of level range list for waist item specifications):

All other objects (food, scrolls, potions, etc.) need to be discussed with Lilly, since they are too numerous to be listed here.


For an idea of how average Armor Class values stack up on the different armor pieces along level progression, check out this chart. Only the items listed on the chart are to be considered "armor"; everything else may be whatever nonspecific that is desired (jewelry, trash, etc.)


For an idea of how average Weapon Damage stacks up along level progression, check out this chart.

Alternate Customization Method

Separately, a player may provide a currently existing, non-quest-reward (some other restrictions may apply) item for customization, and tweak it to their preference based on what already exists (a wand that casts a different spell, food that gives a different effect, etc.). This situation will be a case-by-case basis, so talking to and discussing with Lilly about your desires in this case is the best idea.



Final Note

If there is something that you want that isn't listed here, please discuss it with Lilly. It is likely that there may've been something that was intended to be included but was overlooked, though it may not always be the case. Some additions may be made if Lilly feels they don't upset the Cleft balance, but the idea is to allow the normal acquisition of loot through exploration and discovery to remain the best way to acquire the best equipment, and this method only as a small extension of the restringing process of one's own devices. If it seems like the customization process is limited in scope, it's likely because it is meant to be this way; it isn't meant as a go-to do-all for every piece of equipment one can obtain for every level.
