Replacing Beds, posted on Sun Jun 4 17:05:52 2023

Hello all!

As part of some updates to furniture, several beds have been improved: you can now put things on them! This may prove quite useful for those of you who would like to have a pillow on their bed. :)

So, for those of you houseowners who have beds in their houses: please check in your house if the bed is still properly placed. If not, just replace it; the placement should not be lost ...

A craftsman has now taken up residence in Pumpkin Town. Sadly, he finds himself unable to pass on his knowledge as he lacks a proper workshop, though if asked politely he may explain a thing or two about the crafts system on the Discworld.

Following the recent rollback, many playershops have lost their

waiting list. Don't worry, your items are not truly lost!

We are currently working on a solution to recover these lists with

To see this new output, set options output skills = list.

The pumpkin dummy in Pumpkin Town will now only give up to 3 levels in each fighting skill "for free" (normal tms, at a much slower rate, are still possible though).

On the upside, it will also give you these three levels if you have done the fighting guild task first!

Missing item receipts can now be kissed by anyone, rather than just the original cloner as it used to be!
