Letting In The Jungle, posted on Mon Sep 27 04:31:21 2010
Posted by: Loutre
Category: Klatch (domain pages)
Explorers in the wilds of Klatch have reported that the locals are losing their shyness, and that they are seeing more and more animals as they go about their way. Be warned: some are still not entirely pleased with their newfound visibility, and you may find pointy, spotty death dropping from above if you meet the eyes of certain lurking creatures who would rather remain hidden!

Right Hand Blog Entry, posted on Thu Sep 23 14:46:02 2010

You can now use the hand you're holding something in as adjectives when matching items.

E.g. holding two daggers, they can be referred to as "left hand dagger" and "right dagger", etc.

(The change will not be fully in effect until after next reboot, but it should work on some objects already.)

Exceptional Parser Changes, posted on Tue Sep 21 22:37:57 2010
Posted by: Woom
Category: Mudlib
The parser has been changed a bit, more specifically how "except" is handled.

"except" is now handled before comma, "and" and ampersand. This means that "a&b except c&d", which used to match "a and ( b except c ) and d" now matches "( a and b ) except ( c and d )".

Furthermore, matching with "except" will no longer fail if the excepted class doesn't exist. That is, rather than fail, "a except b" will match all of a if there are no b.

Have fun!

Some NPCs will now kick and punch. It was an oversight that has now been fixed, thanks Turvity!

In addition, counts toward warrior special achievements will now only be awarded when the creature dies. Some other achievements may be changed in the future as well.

Reclaim Command, posted on Fri Sep 17 19:40:01 2010

Playerkillers who wish to recover items which were stolen from them

from another playerkiller's corpse can now use the "reclaim" command

to do so. Reclaiming an item does not count as theft.

Broomstick Slots, posted on Mon Sep 13 13:02:36 2010
Posted by: Woom
Category: Guilds
A bug has been fixed in how the number of recordable slots on broomsticks is calculated.

As a result you may suddenly find yourself with fewer slots than you are used to getting. Please don't die due to this!

Members of the Guilds domain have made the following changes this Bugfix Weekend:

Tempting Treats For Trolls, posted on Sat Sep 4 18:55:45 2010
Posted by: Carmine
Category: Guilds

Trolls are no longer susceptible to the poison of poisonous apples. However, they are susceptible to poisonous minerals, particularly sulphur, cinnabar, micholite and rose quartz. Witches might find that they are also quite attracted to such unhealthy items, if they're proferred in a particularly tempting way.
