A couple of bugs have been fixed with how clothing warms you up/cools you down. You may notice some items suddenly behaving differently in this regards. Further, individual items' properties may get tweaked in the near future.

Bypassing Queues, posted on Fri Apr 3 17:22:54 2015

You can now suppress the "Queued command" message when queuing commands using "brief queue". "verbose queue" turns them back on again.

Have fnu!

A new "gradient" syntax has been added to the "palette" command.

This allows you to create a nice gradient from one colour to another.

Have fnu!

Horses, posted on Tue Apr 1 01:27:54 2014

We are pleased to announced that horses, after years in what can only be called development hell, have been given the attention they deserve.

For the time being you can have a go at them by visiting M'Bu, an enterprising young man who has set up store in Calh-Nhad, but in the future availability will spread.

Have fnu!

Debugging Divine Hand, posted on Wed Aug 21 21:07:42 2013

Category: Guilds
A bug has been fixed in the ritual divine hand, which was making the ritual more difficult than it was set to be.

However, the bug was also making the ritual ignore how many passengers you were taking along, and the squashing of the bug thus means that the ritual will now be more difficult the more passengers you take, as originally intended.


Talker Redux, posted on Mon Apr 1 00:29:03 2013

It's been brought to our attention that, despite the talker channel (Debates) being dedicated to exactly that, they almost without exception take place on (One) instead. Similarly, the conversations on (One) can be seen as one large, ongoing debate.

Therefore, we're simplifying things and merging the two channels, under the name (Debates). To ease transition, the talker commands will still work with the old name ("one"), as well as with the new one ("debates"), for one week.

Womble on!


Enchanté, posted on Tue Feb 12 13:17:12 2013

If you are one of the privileged few who can see the colour octarine, you can now refer to enchanted things as "enchanted things". You can also refer to talismans as "talismans".

N.B. This will only be fully implemented once the MUD has rebooted.

Have fnu!

The command "prompt" has been added, allowing you to change your prompt. See "help prompt" for more information.

Bing,

"let go of <thing>" now works like "unhold <thing>".

Wombles,

As The Days Go By, posted on Wed Oct 3 01:17:47 2012
Posted by: Woom

It has been brought to our attention that our implementation of the Discworld calendar did not match canon, specifically with regards to the number of days in each month.

This has now been rectified (see "help calendar" (concepts)). As a result, a number of dates no longer exist (in particular large parts of the month of Ick), and dates that were called one thing yesterday go by a new one today. You may want to check your sources if you're relying on in-game dates for anything...
