Origami

Before you can make anything in origami you need the colored papyrus that is sold in the storyteller shops.  You also need skills in gadgeteering and perhaps music or stagecraft.
 
When you have the square of papyrus in your hand and type USAGE PAPYRUS you will be told:
 
This square of papyrus is specially made for origami folding only.  The different verbs you will use to manipulate the papyrus are:  TURN, TWIST, PULL, PUSH, ROLL, CUT, CLOSE, OPEN, PLEAT, CRIMP, CREASE, TUCK, SHAPE, SINK, and FOLD.  There are four different FOLDs:  MOUNTAIN, VALLEY, REVERSE, and NORMAL.  To create an object you will need to perform the folds in the correct sequence.
 
For example... to make a CUP, do the following:
 
FOLD <object> VALLEY
PULL
TUCK
OPEN
 
If you receive a message saying you have gone over your head, then you lack the required skill to continue trying to fold the object you are working on.  Any other message about a failure will mean you made a wrong fold and will need to RUB your square of papyrus to start over.
 
Many objects have limited uses depending on how well you make them.  Starting over too many times will reduce the uses the object will have.  Some objects also have multiple uses such as the paper cube while others like the rose will take more than one square of papyrus to make.  Using USAGE <finished object> will tell you how to use your new creation.
 
Instructions for each model will not be given out.  It's up to you to figure them out by trial and error.  There are currently seventeen different models with some taking no skill at all and some being beyond the skill of even the oldest of artisans.  Good luck and have fun!
