PS. As part of the selected weapon updates, I have also added two new weapons.

HAPPY HUNTING.

As I'm sure many of you are aware, some melee types (e.g. polearm, axe, misc, and flail) have been in a bad spot for a long time. This is, at least in part, due to the lack of decently-damaging, heavier weapon choices in these weapon classes.

I have therefore selected a very limited number of weapons in these melee classes and updated them.

Please note that this is a stop-gap measure intended to help some neglected melee classes until combat changes further down the line are ready :)

There is a hidden artifacts stall somewhere in Ephebe.

Happy hunting!

After getting a few separate people to repeat the calculation that I made myself to make sure I wasn't crazy(ier), I have reduced the weight of lightable torches slightly.

They were rather too heavy for what they were, so this should be more convenient for those of you who want to carry them for whatever nefarious purpose.

The Wizard spell Heezlewurst's Elemental Buffer has been changed so that it absorbs a greater amount of lightning damage.

The description of the colours that appear around the player after casting has also been tweaked, and it now gives duration feedback via the "shields" command.

Bing!

Rhokshial's crystals have been added to some additional places around the Discworld.

Have FNU!

Absentee Postgraduate Course Candidates, posted on Wed Mar 28 17:09:19 2018

Assassins who are absent from the Discworld for a period of 90 roundworld days will now be removed from any postgraduate courses that they were enrolled in.

Any affected players can claim back a certain amount of their course fees from the secretary in the guild.

The secretary will now also warn players about this when they enrol.

This was implemented in order to stop absentee players from adversely affecting the ability of active players to complete their lecture programmes!

There's a pile of seasoned branches for your burning pleasure somewhere in the west part of Ephebe. They function just like the normal logs, but they are a bit larger and should last slightly longer.

For your fuel-storing pleasure, I have added a coal scuttle to one of the furniture shops in Ephebe. Although it's called a "coal scuttle", it will in fact store all fuels suitable for burning in a fireplace.

Goodness Gracious: Great Burning Lumps Of Coal!, posted on Fri Mar 23 16:39:32 2018

You are now able to burn coal in your fireplaces.

Any old coal that you have won't work, so you'll have to refresh your supply!

If you obtain some NEW coal and find that it doesn't burn, please submit a bugrep on it and specifiy where you got it from! Likewise, if you experience any other oddities with coal or other minerals, please submit a bugrep on the mineral object and be as specific and detailed as possible!
