I've fixed a number of bugs and made a couple of adjustments in and around Djelibeybi. Some will have more of an impact on your day-to-day play than others, so I do suggest reading this one carefully.

- The language school textbooks should no longer have more than one word with the exact same Djelian translation, meaning players no longer have to guess which is the right word when given the translation and asked for the original word.

- Textbooks for learning the Klatchian language should no longer contain words that have no Klatchian translation. As much as the teachers enjoyed having students try to pronounce the word " ", it was deemed "not that funny" and "poor educational practice" to do so.

Please note that these two changes will only apply to any newly-issued textbooks. Existing textbooks will be unaffected but the teachers will avoid asking you to translate the ambiguous words therein.

- Players in the same room as somebody taking a written exam will no longer see message like 'You select option A' as if they were taking the exam themselves.

- It should no longer be possible for a second player to enrol in a lesson right after another player has just enroled in one and effectively cut in front of the original player.

- The DJB post office no longer dispatches both a frog and a djinn to inform recipients of deposited parcels.

- Wandering mercenaries will no longer try to convince cats, camels, and other non-sapient indivuals to pay them for assistance in a fight.

- After a very -pointed- debate, D'reg men and women will both simply be called "D'reg"s when encountered out and about in the world. Furthermore, D'regs will no longer have wildly inappropriate adjectives such as "shy" or "mousey". It has been brought to our attention that while there were very few complaints about these adjectives, this was largely due to the lifespan of such complainants being consistently cut short around the time they became aware of the misnomer. Consider yourselves warned.

(This change may not be immediately apparent but should start to filter through in the coming hours)

Have fun!
