Container Labels

Post by Kiyaani » Thu Aug 15, 2019 9:02 pm

It would be neat if we could purchase a stack of labels or tags, write 2-3 words on them, and apply them to packages or other long-term storage containers. This would help with organization when you want to keep certain items of a type all together for easy storage and retrieval. The labels would all be considered in-character.

So if you had a bunch of packages in a trunk, for example, instead of seeing "a package (x10)" and having to keep track of what they all were or look in them all, you would see something like: "a package labeled nails", "a package labeled shirts", "a package labeled Octum costume", "a package labeled poultice herbs", etc. If you decided to change the label you could remove or "detach" it and "write" a new one. Would work for boxes, trunks, crates, chests etc.

I don't know how that could be ;)

This is now a thing!
order label
You set your sights on a blank papyrus label.
A small papyrus label with a bit of string, to be attached to something.
You might be able to light it.
It is a tiny item, mainly made of papyrus.
It weighs approximately 0 pounds.
You want 1 of them.
The total price is 5 riln.
You may buy to finalize the order.

buy
You pay 5 riln and receive a blank papyrus label.
[-5 riln, taken from your leather belt pouch]
write Happy Birthday, Gunther!
You consider writing the following on your blank papyrus label:

====================
Happy Birthday, Gunther!
====================

If you're satisfied with this draft, type write confirm to actually write it down.

write confirm
You write on your blank papyrus label with your stick of writing charcoal.

attach
You're about to attach a label that reads "Happy Birthday, Gunther!" to a thick parchment package.
Repeat this command if you're sure.

attach
You attach an inscribed papyrus label that reads "Happy Birthday, Gunther!" to a thick parchment package.

hands
You are holding nothing in your right hand and a thick parchment package labeled "Happy Birthday, Gunther!" (open) in your left hand.

l packa
You take a closer look at a thick parchment package labeled "Happy Birthday, Gunther!" ...
A thick parchment package useful for affordably mailing riln or several items at once via the post office.
It is open.
It is comprised of the following components:
an inscribed papyrus label that reads "Happy Birthday, Gunther!"
Note that looking at the item allows you to see the details of the label itself, so you can buy those fancy-looking labels and people can appreciate them.

Labels can be attached to just about anything but food (and other labels) at the moment, but I'm sure restrictions will be put into place as I think of things. If you can think of items that really shouldn't be label-able, please post suggestions here.

P.S. You can use the label text for item targeting. Using the above example, I could do "put hat in gunther birthday package", for instance.

Could we get some syntax to attach labels to objects that are on the ground? If a crate is full of stuff, you have to currently empty it out to heave it and attach the label. Would just be a nice QOL update!
