Pet brushes are now more effective at getting muck out of the fur of the pets sold in Sto Lat. If you find a type of muck that can't be brushed out, and you think it should be, please make a bugrep with a log showing what the pet looks like with its muck on.

Keys and keyrings have been made lighter. This should not affect the difficulty of stealing them, but it will make it slightly harder to perform remember place on them.

In Xa Tain in Hong Fa has turned her printing machine off and on again,...

Happy pre-Hogswatch, everyone! At some point during the next few days, the Rotational Association of Sto Lat will put up their Hogswatch tree and open up their shop, and it will officially be Hogswatchtide. The Chairman had this to say:

"I would like to take this opportunity to reassure everyone that the Hogswatch tree due to be placed in the Royal Market is perfectly safe so long as nobody of low and rash character does anything so flagrantly stupid as to poke it repeatedly. I repeat, DO ...

Many, many new achievements have been added (see ach list new). Also:

A bug in the All Together Now Achievement has been fixed, so it should now actually be achieveable.

One-third of knights on the roads will now have a horse, wearing some interesting new gear.

Horseshoes now act as armour for horses' hooves, which also means they will get damaged in combat.

Horse (and camel) zones have been tweaked so that attacks target the legs less of the time.

Several sailing-related bugs have been fixed:

Hitting a forward current at the end of a voyage will no longer make the SS Unsinkable leap magically over the port and get stuck on land. If the current would have taken you into port, your voyage will now be correctly completed.

The difficulty of tying crates down was previously very random. It now scales with the number of crates you're trying to tie, though the overall range of difficulty remains the same. This means that people with lower sk...

I've updated, and fixed some bugs, in keep:

- The keep flag will no longer be removed when a kept item leaves your inventory accidentally.

- The keep flag now only applies to the player who set it (always).

- The put command now respects keep. You cannot put kept items into containers that you're not carrying.

- You will not fumble kept items unless there is no other choice.
