The package delivery jobs available in Genua harbour now have a wider and hopefully less frustrating range of possible targets. (In particular, frequently-killed casino employees and wandering unscryable preachers are absolutely no longer allowed on the list.) The XP and money rewards have also been slightly increased, and the lockout time before you can take on another job has been decreased.

Now that spring has well and truly sprung, your lovely creators have been hard at work weeding the garden that is the MUD codebase. The list of changes below might look small, but for each change you see here, there have been a multitude of other quiet little adjustments and fixes in response to various idea and bug reports. The changes you are likely to notice are as follows:

- A variety of climbable trees have had oddities fixed, such as properly responding to 'climb assess', and giving a ...

Borst Besensteel in Copperhead now sells broom stencils in his shop. These can be used in conjunction with a tin of paint and a small stencilling sponge[1] to apply a stencilled design to a broomstick.

Those wishing to apply a stencil to their broomstick will need a quite respectable degree of painting skill, and should be able to apply stencils to any kind of broomstick. Note that custom broomsticks can only be stencilled if they do not already feature a 'decoration' from Borst.

Important No...

Ordering Broom Polish, posted on Thu Apr 14 21:37:45 2022

Borst Besensteel, in Copperhead, has been rationalising his business processes a bit. You can once more order a box of six jars of broom polish in your chosen scent and finish, this time by talking to him rather than with a room command. You may in the process find yourself committing tax fraud, but in the final analysis, being a witch is a form of tax fraud anyway.

Dear thieves,

A couple of achievements have been adjusted to make them be more about persistent acts of thievery and less about staying logged in for unhealthy amounts of time. Specifically, the requirement for reaching the top of the leaderboard a number of times has been removed from Thief Extraordinaire and Mazda's Hero. Instead, they now require you to pay A$96000 and A$256000 towards your quota.

If you have already reached one or both of these totals but "ach details <achievement>" s...

Chefet, the Dog-Headed God of Metalworking, has decreed that the doors to His temple are to be thrown open to the public. Visitors to this sacred place (conveniently located off Petulia Avenue, Ephebe) are invited to witness the masterful feats of metalworking conducted in His honour and to fill the temple coffers by purchasing one of the many exquisite items crafted by His faithful. Those who wish to try their hand at creating fine works of their own are welcome to make use of the forging faci...

This weekend, your wonderful creator team sifted through a variety of bug and idea reports relating to the Witches' Guild and have made the following changes and improvements:

Brooms/Flying:

- Holding a broom when finding yourself high up in the air will now only land witches safely; everyone else can expect a hard landing.

- Attempting a disallowed command while flying on a broomstick will now inform other players in the air room of your poor choices.

- Some incorrect broom landing message...

Another magical experiment by the Bes Pelargic wizards has gone wrong. Your intrepid reporter isolated the head researcher responsible for the accident for an exclusive interview.

Q: Are camels -

A: You again!

The interview ended at this point. However, the head researcher is available in the Bes Pelargic wizards' guild again for further questions.

Ninja who have passed the Chunin Test, but not the Ru Noperi, should now be able to close Agatean family inhumation contracts like any other graduate.
