We’re getting Dos Equis in GS?

I don’t always play GS, but when I do, it’s with Dos Erithis.

>look my pitcher
A koi-shaped handle with soft and pliable fins creates a fitting adornment to the elegant wavy lines that encircle the entire silver pitcher. Centered on the base is a small sapphire-faced dial that currently points to the word “mead”. A small brass plate affixed next to the dial reads, “honey.” The word “mana” illuminates and flows along the wavy lines encircling the pitcher.

You say, “Hmm.”

>turn my pitcher
You turn a sapphire-faced dial on the base of your silver pitcher and set the pointer to “rum”.

You gasp.

>push my pitcher
You push a small knob next to the sapphire-faced dial on the base of your silver pitcher. In elegant script, the word “spiced” begins to illuminate across a small brass plate.

You squeal.

>pour my pitcher
You tip the silver pitcher slightly to pour out some liquid. Swirls of glittery light cascade…

I shared this elsewhere, but I think your amazing pitcher deserves to be shared here as well. A small part of me hates that I get so excited about this versus uber weapons or armor or whatever, but, it’s a lot of fun. I think the only thing I’d add on as a wishlist is for it to be belt or shoulder wearable. Backpacks and cloaks don’t seem to me to be way more appropriate storage places for such a pitcher, in my very biased opinion.


You analyze your silver pitcher and sense that the item cannot be altered in any way.

The creator has also provided the following information:
Current verbs: DRINK (use enhancive regen ability), KISS, LOOK (see what drink is set), LOOK IN (see how much liquid is inside), PINCH (regen type), POUR (pour specified drink), PUSH (set drink flavor), RAISE, SLAP, SNUGGLE, TOUCH, TURN (set drink type), and WAVE. DRINKing the pitcher will provide a “thirst-quenched” effect of either health, mana, or stamina regeneration that will last for 1 hour. During this time, you will be unable to create any drinks. DRINK frequency is determined by whether the regen type is random (every 8 hours) or selected (every 24 hours) – choose this with PINCH.

Your silver pitcher is currently able to make the following drinks:

ALE: spiced, pale, and dark
CHAMPAGNE: aged, rosy pink, and bubbly golden
MEAD: apple, honey, and cinnamon-spiced
RUM: buttered, coconut, and spiced
WHISKEY: aged, golden, and malt
WINE: red, white, and blush
COFFEE: black, creamed, and chocolate-laced
JUICE: apple, orange, and peach
MILK: white, chocolate, and coconut
TEA: green, jasmine, and ginger-infused
WATER: spring, lemon, and fruit-infused

This silver pitcher was created for the 2016 Auction and cannot be altered in any way.


Next goal. Open my very own GS bar.

Thanks for your work on this!

By “thirst quenched”, does that mean that Bards are invulnerable to parched throats during that time?

It has nothing to do with bards and their parched throats!

Any time. Tips in the form of silvers greatly appreciated.
