Never A Kindly Word., posted on Sat Jun 20 10:40:15 2020

Mocking can be a hit or miss affair sometimes, so I've added in some hints to help out. Witches may now mull over their targets' shortcomings with additional eye-ings. This will show the witch where they might best apply some verbal jabs.

Enjoy!

Klein Bottle Bugfix, posted on Sun Apr 5 18:33:26 2020

Klein bottles no longer break when attacking unarmed since you can't attack with them at all. This should make them less annoying to use when harvesting components or casting NES in combat.

You may need to su to update any bottles already in your possession.

Dead Letter Update, Part II, posted on Sun Apr 5 16:57:26 2020

Hello all!

I have made a small tweak to the new dead letter missions. The two "only the city" letters are now a little bit easier and correspondingly pay a slightly lower reward.

Enjoy!

Hello all!

The dead letter office delivery missions have been heavily reworked. They are now better balanced across the guilds and pay rewards that are consistent with the mission system. Overall, this means that they will give less XP, but on the upside, there are more of them so you will not run into the repetition timer quite so quickly!

It is possible that the missions and rewards will be tweaked a bit more in the weeks to come (but this could go in either direction).

All assassins may now "check" the status of their specialisation's inhumation fund in its private and public inhumation offices. Specialisation admin will also find similar facilities at their disposal in their offices.

A bug that made it possible to slip past the guarding NPCs in the Snail has been fixed. It is now as dangerous as it should have been, so be careful.

Need A Hand?, posted on Mon Dec 9 15:20:22 2019

This bugfix weekend saw a number of fixes to the spells Booch's Extremal Polymorphism and Yordon's Extremal Extension. Most notably:

* Your left and right hands don't swap anymore.

* Objects now remain held in the same hands (where possible) when you gain or lose arms.

* Two-handed objects that are held in two hands are not dropped if you lose one of those arms.

* When your arms are back to normal, you will now be holding the correct things.

If you had extra arms before these fixes you may ...

Fixing Refractory Furniture., posted on Mon Jul 15 17:12:25 2019
Posted by: Fran
Category: General
We have fixed a bug that stopped us changing furniture after it had been bought.

The dimensions or capacity of some of your furniture might change if they were out of date. You may therefore not be able to fit everything back in that you take out.

If you notice any unusual behaviour, contact a liaison.

Thieves (though not necessarily in the guild of the same name) will find that using unsophisticated means to procure their illicit gains are no longer guaranteed a speedy escape.

If you use snatch, you now stand a chance of having your carefully planned exit plan foiled. With enough skill you can improve your odds.

This affects both players and NPCs.

Enjoy/Beware!

Moving Out Of Your Ephebian Sublet., posted on Fri Jun 28 17:46:57 2019

If you have been allowed to access a house in Ephebe and then get your own house, your access will no longer be immediately revoked. The Tyrant now grants one week (round-world) for you to move your belongings out.

Enjoy!
