Samurai Titles., posted on Fri Mar 12 10:38:58 2021

After longstanding and repeated complaints were raised about how bad some Samurai guild titles were, I have put in a load of new and different titles for them. Many are entirely new, several were changed because the title used to read along the lines of "the Keen Samurai of the Samurai" and this was ugly. Guild level ranges are not affected.

As per the previous blog posts warning that this change was imminent, TPA/SFP no longer mix with Major/minor shield and holy aegis.

The anti scry effect of the wizard spell Kipperwald's Perlustration Prevention now has a dramatically reduced duration.

This means that instead of, for example, your KPP lasting for a twelve hours, it might last for 2.5 hours instead.[0]

[0] These numbers have been picked out of thin air purely for explanatory purposes.

Meditate, posted on Thu Feb 25 14:07:49 2021

Meditation is now available as a stand alone command away from high altars. Although meditating to remove your divine protection is now available for use anywhere, other techniques still require the use of a high altar.

Anyone can learn the command from a temple instructor, even atheists or witches and wizards. In order for such individuals to learn the command, they will need to find an instructor that they can reach without worshipping a deity - probably either the Pishe instructor in the tem...

Mixing And Matching Of Faith And Magical Shields., posted on Tue Feb 9 13:57:54 2021

As people are asking me this a lot, I thought I'd blog to save people the trouble :)

The recent changes to major shield that made it outer armour go hand in hand with some more changes that will be made shortly.

They haven't yet been made because I found some additional things that needed doing first.

You will soon no longer be able to combine major shield, minor shield, and holy aegis with magical impact shields (TPA and SFP) and bugshield.

Other combinations of faith and magic shields (includ...

The ritual Artefact Inquisition appears to have been broken... possibly forever.

It should now properly show which deity bestowed a particular ritual on a rod.

You will find that some of the more esoteric Sto Plains deities (largely evidenced on Sto lat priests) now have more interesting shield messages.

Major/minor Shield Tweaks., posted on Fri Jan 29 21:27:52 2021

So, there have been a couple of changes to faith shields. Most of these are cosmetic, one is functional.

The functional change is the major shield now counts as "outer" armour. This means it protects you before your clothes and other worn things and these will therefore get less damaged than before.

The most important of the cosmetic changes is that there is now a "high level" major shield message. Gapp's had one for a while (the "cloth of gold" message you may have seen) but now every other p...
