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.

Assassins who are absent from the Discworld for a period of 90 roundworld days will now be removed from any postgraduate courses that they were enrolled in.
