The Annals Of Wand Research, posted on Tue Jun 29 21:46:50 2010

The researchers in the Unseen University labs are proud to unveil their latest creation - the Paint Stained Wand.

Using the latest in modern wandology, they've managed to create a wand that can store paint and eject it at will. Unfortunately, due to a currently unknown cause, the ejected paint only seems to stick to other people.

Available exclusively (for now) at Hobliet the Unnecessary's Linear Tools in the Magic Emporium in Ankh-Morpork.

Magic wands have had a bit of an overhaul. The chances and consequences of backfires have been tweaked to take better account of skills, and the messages have been clarified a little. In addition, backfires on certain wands should now be more interesting!

To bring it in line with other actions requiring components, attempting to recharge something wizardly has changed! Now, if you attempt to recharge something and don't have enough power in your source substance, the substance will not be consumed and the guildpoints will not be used.

A few issues with goldsmithing have been fixed:

* value will now increase after each stage rather than just after sculpting

* you should expect to get back some of the cost of the metal bar, even if you fail

* the time taken to sculpt and polish is now more dependent on skills

In some cases this means that overall value may be reduced, but in others it may have increased.

The Imperial Guard stationed in Bes Pelargic has adopted a new stance when it comes to dealing with the murderous bloodsucking foreign vampire ghosts that sometimes roam the city streets.

Rather than martyrly protect the denizens it has been sworn to safeguard, the Imperial Guard will now attempt to use more tactical means to defend its wards.

Good luck! Don't die!

The Librarian has discovered a new spell, Pragi's Molten Gaze, hidden in a notebook found in a pocket of L-space. He has carefully coaxed it out and it has now taken up residence in the tome of "Begynners' Magick".

To make room for this newly discovered spell, Finneblaugh's Thaumic Float has been moved from the beginners' tome into "Invoakatyons in thee Mysterie of Wynd". As it is now knocking around with the big scary spells, it decided to toughen up and add an extra stage to itself.

Those players who have always wanted to turn their spare bedroom into

a library or walk-in closet will be pleased to find that they can now

do so! Playerhouse owners can use the "label" command to change the

function of a room in their house.

Note that, to avoid absurdity, only rooms with standard names can be

Greetings honourable citizens,

Due to a recent and sudden boom in real estate, new player houses have been constructed in glorious Bes Pelargic. New properties will not immediately show up on the market, but they will be up for bid as they pass Grand Inspector Wun Thru Wall's random weekly building inspections.

Good luck!
