Does anyone out there just love to write descriptive messages? I'm working on magical crafting and could use some emotes for descriptive messages of a person working on enchanting an item. Something akin to the following.. but better...

Fred sprinkles some fine powder over the item while chanting under his breath.

Fred transcribes some arcane symbols onto the item


You get the idea. Color codes are optional, but I'll keep them if you include them.

Transparent runes fade in and out of existence as Fred chants over the item.

A shimmering aura flashes around the item with every sigil Fred inscribes.

Fred tosses a handful of strange components over the item, which burst into blue/green/purple/multicolored flame(s).

A whispered susurrus of words from Fred causes the item to vibrate and softly glow.

If you want, I can color them. Or you can draft Jysibyl to do it... she's good, and has a hard time saying no.

They aren't showing up for me. Are you sure you sent them to the right person?

See? She wasn't even officially asked, and already agreed.

Hahahah Mikyn. Laughing Shocked Sad

Eh, feck. I don't know where they got off to, then. They're not even in my sentbox. I'll just post here. So top is what they say, and then there's the color codes.

ROOM: The temperature of the air fluctuates and shifts erratically as NAME draws power from HIS/HER surroundings..

SELF: The temperature of the air fluctuates and shifts erratically as you draw power to yourself, focusing it on OBJECT

------------------------------------------------------------

ROOM: Eyes cast downward in concentration, NAME traces strange runes in the air while murmuring powerful words of binding.

SELF: Concentrating deeply, you carefully weave your spell, tracing its familiar patterns in the air.

-------------------------------------------------------------

ROOM AND SELF: A strange noise, like glass pushed to the edge of breaking, ripples through the room.

--------------------------------------------------------------

ROOM: Closing HIS/HER eyes in concentration, NAME’S voice rises and falls in a rhythmic, mesmerizing mantra.

SELF: You close your eyes and chant, feeling the power within you grow quickly...

-------------------------------------------------------------

ROOM: Strange, glowing symbols appear on the item as NAME traces HIS/HER fingers along its surface.

SELF: You confidently trace your fingers along the surface of the OBJECT, enthralled by the symbols that flare to life beneath your touch.
