Less Limited Inhumations, posted on Fri Sep 27 19:47:14 2019

Assassins of every specialisation used to only be able to close NPC contracts four times.

They can now close NPC contracts four times every eight months or so.

There have been several changes to the witch spell Gammer Shorga's Helpful Undergrowth.

These have been implemented with the aim of making things fairer for a witch's victims while still giving the witch the opportunity to have their wicked way with them.

Some of the changes are as follows:

1) Stacking/merging of vines. The number of vines that can entangle a victim has been capped. A low level witch will take more casts to reach this cap than a high level one. A low level witch and a high ...

An elderly-but-spry lady has taken up residence in a hut in the Harbourwalk of Ephebe. Rumour has it she's spent most of her life living alone in a cave in one of the Ephebian-controlled islands in the Circle Sea.

Any witches visiting her in her new abode may find that she has something interesting to teach them if they possess sufficient skill.
