Shades maze muggers may be a little less indiscriminate in what they snatch. Perhaps it's the economy.

Following information being received that Barbarians had been targetting a shopkeeper, Ulive, for her uniquely exciting footwear, the Tyrant has ordered her to tone down her dress.

As a consequence of this, another trader has spotted a gap in the market, and has taken up residence in the Dockside market, ready to fulfil your footwear-related desires.

Some changes have been made to the flow of water through Lancre Gorge. Due to gnarly ground the river was formed by two horizontal waterfalls, flowing in opposed directions and creating a near-inescapable nightmare where the two met.

The river now flows correctly but please be aware that there is no longer a shallow section beneath Lancre Bridge so any corpses created by a fall into the gorge can now be washed all the way to Lancre Ness. ItÂ’s worth being aware of.

If you are one of the privileged few who can see the colour octarine, you can now refer to enchanted things as "enchanted things". You can also refer to talismans as "talismans".

N.B. This will only be fully implemented once the MUD has rebooted.

Have fnu!

As a result of the re-opening of the City of Ephebe, Bing's Bank - famously known for having branches in the city of Ankh-Morpork as well as elsewhere on the Sto Plains - has opened a branch franchise on Impartiality avenue.

You will now be able to access any funds deposited with Bing's Bank and withdraw them in local Ephebian currency.

Kind Regards,

International Business Development Manager, Bing's Bank.

Dear all,

Following the re-opening of Ephebe, the priests of the temple of Pishe in Djelibeybi have decided that enough was enough.

Trying to keep the fountains and rain clouds moist was proving a drain on their resources, and so they have decided to close down and relocate to new premises in Ephebe.


Whoops. Is It Thursday Already?, posted on Thu Jan 31 00:04:49 2013

Hello everyone,

It is now Thursday, and I am pleased to announce that Ephebe is now live, accessible, and ready to be explored.

This is in no way everything that Ephebe will have to offer: there will be several further releases of quests, achievements, buildings and other nifty features over the coming months.

In no particular order, I would like to thank everyone who has helped bring Ephebe into existence:

Archoplytes, Ishamael, Chilali, Loutre, Touchstone, Dasquian, Peta, Jewels, Epic, Tiqu...

Unacceptable Behaviour, posted on Tue Jan 8 23:59:01 2013

Taking items from carts, such as those used by delivery men in Sto Lat, will now trigger a response.

Part of this response is that this action will be considered theft. Theft has repercussions in certain locations, so be careful.

This also means a PK check has been introduced.

Casting Changes, posted on Tue Jan 8 23:00:47 2013

There have been a couple of changes to casting spells that should fix some issues with the "using" syntax of the cast command, eg "cast mother feelbright's busy bees on soldier using 10 dollops of honey" and "cast tpa on me using 1 handful of ash in backpack and shield in backpack" should now work.

In addition to this, if an item is taken from a component pouch while casting, the code will attempt to return non-consumed items to the same container after the spell has finished.

The managers of McSweeney Restaurants in Ankh-Morpork and Genua have decided to open up employment to the masses. You are invited to work a shift in the kitchen, at the counter or on the cleaning staff. But be prepared: flipping burgers may just be harder than you think...

P.S. Some achievements were also added. To wit: Pressure Cooker, Mess Mcmanager, Have A Nice Day and Starry Eyed.
