Ignorance Is Bliss, Or At Least Safety., posted on Sat Oct 22 11:09:10 2022

Labels can no longer be stuck to people who are ignoring you.

On a similar note, wands that don't do damage (eg. garlic breath, icing sugar, paintball) can no longer be zapped at people who are ignoring you.

Things And Stuff And Bits And Pieces, posted on Sun Jul 3 18:48:06 2022

We have a collection of fixes and minor improvements for you!

* You can now use eg. 'pour 1/5 of ink well onto sponge' when staining. Using less or more than the amount the sponge needs will waste some. Using 'pour ink well on sponge' will still automatically take the correct amount (1/5 of the capacity of a standard ink well). The bug whereby using 'onto' would occasionally not colour the sponge has been fixed.

* Player-made staves are now slightly lighter than they were, which is to say they a...

Mending Mending, posted on Thu Jun 23 13:14:18 2022

You should now be able to use a needle and thread to repair things made of more materials than you previously could. Specifically, the nice fabrics that Gerard de Wendelle uses should now be mendable, as should things made of fluff and things that appraise as "fabric". If you come across something that you can't mend, but you think you should be able to, please make a bug report on the needle saying what you were trying to mend, and where you got it from!


Ordering Broom Polish, posted on Thu Apr 14 21:37:45 2022

Borst Besensteel, in Copperhead, has been rationalising his business processes a bit. You can once more order a box of six jars of broom polish in your chosen scent and finish, this time by talking to him rather than with a room command. You may in the process find yourself committing tax fraud, but in the final analysis, being a witch is a form of tax fraud anyway.

Ninja who have passed the Chunin Test, but not the Ru Noperi, should now be able to close Agatean family inhumation contracts like any other graduate.

Inhumation By Beheading, posted on Sun Mar 20 14:43:39 2022

Category: Guilds
Attention, all Hashishim! You can now inhume people by beheading with a greater variety of swords than before.

Previously, any weapon that used the fighting.melee.sword skill and had the slice command would work. This is still the case, but now also all the swords that are Hashishim cultural weapons will also work - any scimitar, shamshir, sabre, kora, or khopesh - whatever their fighting commands.

Inhuming weapons use their normal fighting.melee.* skill - eg. a kora inhumes using the sword...
