    *Sneaks in* Happy Friday Everyone!!!

    *looks around* Don't tell anyone but you want to see one of your 15th year Anniversary Gifts we have been working on? Can you guess what it is or what hue is the rare one?

    Lifespan 4 weeks: I like that they wont last forever, could be lower in my opinion but hey looking forward to patch notes.
    Moonbound: Indestructible - not even gonna guess on this.

    The piano's look good. The detail is really nice, especially in regards to the keys. My guess is that the seventh starting from the left is the rare one.

    Pure speculation here, but maybe they take extra durability damage in Tram and none in Fel. I'm skeptical they would have them just explode :D

    Regardless looking forward more and more to the actual patch notes.

    Well now that we have pianos, I wonder hand-held firearms are included as one of the other anniversary items?

    Technically, I think they're harpsichords (note the two layers of keys).

    I think are these harpsichord with music gears?

    I'd say the 3rd one (red) is the best, it actually looks like mahogany. It is also the Only one that where the lid shades go from to lighter to darker, viewing left to right, while all the others appear opposite.

    yeah, i noticed that too, all of them are rendered as if lit from the top shading to the left except the red, which is reversed.

    Those look great! Thank you!

    It would be absolutely great if they could somehow play music everyone can hear and if our characters could sit down.

    Third, fifth and sixth all go from light to dark from left to right, and the pic itself is named harpsichord...

    I like! And I don't care what colour I get - I just have to make some decor adjustments to make room for it.

    And
    Life span 4 weeks, moonbound? Either we've done some pretty accurate guessing this week or someone has been reading a lot.

    Perhaps this is what we were being invited to "test" on TC1 and people like me and many others were blowing our gaskets a bit prematurely. Who can say meow. Still, a 15th anniversary cinnamon roll is on order!

    The one in the middle #6 is the rare one I love them, thank you. Do they play?? I'd love them to have music.... can you imagine the lovely sound....... Harpsicord music is very nice.

    They look good for the EC, but will look horribly out of place in the classic client.

    Looking at the grass in the background, those are in the classic client. Why do you feel they won't fit?

    I'd have to assume the white (2) or blaze (1) harpsichord is the rare one, leaning on the white one because I really need another white deed that I confuse with power scrolls ;P. I'm conservative so I'd probably go for black (5) to own, but I actually own a brown harpsichord IRL, haha (no brown there, so I'm out of luck unless I settle for (3)).
    Sounds like they'll be similar to ephemeral items, which are, in fact, near-indestructible for 25 hours of play despite the continuing countdown. You can take an ephemeral item and get grizzle ooze on it and six seconds later have all the lost durability refreshed.
    I don't know if they'll blow up :p but I think that a state change would be interesting.
    I hope they'll be functional to some extent. Means we'll have to collect all the damn gears again, no? :p
    For some reason you made me think about how people used to house PK noobs by placing a trash barrel in front of their door, haha. Be funny if people could place them at door like that ;).

    # 1... I like the duration idea on the faction arty's. (course I did suggest ephemeral myself so.. )

    # 2... Me thinks Mesanna is asking us which one is rare so THEY know which one to make rare heh... Pure white one btw ..... is the correct answer.
