The Ettouferie of Luc Chanceux is now open on Yaga Crescent in Genua, offering custom-made string ties of all descriptions. Mano Rossarians in particular will find his services of interest.

Goaded on by this competition, Monsieur Gabbiani has increased his fabric options to include a couple of locally-themed leathers; though unlike Luc, he continues to offer his services to members of the Mano Rossa only.

Some more updates for the Genua trainable pets:

- They now do an emote (about wanting to go on an adventure) when they send a follow request to someone. This should make it easier for their owners to see what's going on and hence to praise or punish them as preferred.

- The monkeys can now be trained to "equip" and "unequip", thus allowing them to wear and remove human clothing as well as pet clothing. (This was kinda-sorta implemented already, but wasn't working properly.) You can still simpl...

Being at the turn of the year, our most recent Bugfix Weekend focused on a guild concerned heavily with endings - assassins! Here's what we did.

* Fingering an assassin will now show if they hold a position within their spec.

* Inhumation books/scrolls/rolls can now be viewed with the contracts sorted by price (ascending/descending) as well as by name.

* Something at the Mano Rossa mansion that was not previously climbable has now been made climbable (and also something-else-able).

* Monsieur G...

- They no longer require you to omit punctuation for them to understand a command (e...

* A bug with the squirming black tentacle has been fixed. You can no longer hold this with any of your limbs (even the normal ones) when under the effects of Booch's Extremal Polymorphism. On the bright side, this means that your tentacle will no longer be eaten by a silent runtime error.

* Playerhouse rooms can now have up to six different types of decoration on the surfaces (floor, ceiling, walls) before the description gets collapsed into "X are multicoloured". (If you have a room that stil...

* You can now drag things underwater.

* Knocking other people's pets off the DJB walls is now properly PK-checked.

* A small number of chicken feathers can now be picked up from among those littering Staff Sergeant Grout Ilbilee's "office" in Lancre.

* Master Gildworthy has been persuaded to tidy up and label his stock better. A stack labelled e.g. "A six-foot riving of birch" will now be birch all the way down, until his assistant changes the stock around.

* In other woodworking news, gingko ri...

A bug in the baby kraken pet has been fixed, and so interactions between these pets and other wearable pets will now work more consistently. Specifically, wearable pets are intended to attack each other when you wear more than one of them. Before the bug was fixed, you could stop this from happening by wearing the other pet first and the baby kraken second. This inconsistency has been removed, and so the attack will now happen regardless of the order you wear them in.

* A small bug has been fixed in the SS Unsinkable's dragons, which will affect people with very low skills. There was meant to be a skillcheck to see whether you could see any information at all about a dragon's status, but the bug meant that this skillcheck was always succeeding. Wranglers without the skill to pass this check will no longer be able to see the abovementioned information.

* Relatedly, a new command - "check <dragon> [status]" has been added to the dragons to let wranglers see th...

A new restaurant has opened on Fast Street. Its proprietor and her wife are keen to share the joys of chaat - a category of Bharatri snack food that combines crunch, tang, sweetness and saltiness - with the residents of Ankh-Morpork, so make sure to take your friends and a good appetite along with you!
