Additional Witch Spell Tweaks., posted on Tue Jun 4 13:13:16 2013

In addition to the previously announced beesargh changes, there have been tweaks to other witch spells:

1) The witch enchantment spell, Mother Twinter's Yarrow Enchantment, has had its guild point cost reduced. Conversely, it now takes up more space in your mind.

2) The spell Granny Lipintense's Layer of Lard has been made slightly more difficult to cast. It also requires more guild points than before, and takes up more of your available mind space.

Have fun!

The witches' main damaging offensive spell, Mother Feelbright's Busy Bees, has been largely re-written to remove its reliance upon the fighting skill, fighting.range.thrown.

In short, your ability to damage a victim is no longer dependent upon hitting them with a gob of honey.

It is now a purely magical spell, relying upon your ability to summon and control a swarm of bees.

In addition to this:

* The skills crafts.pottery.forming.shaping and magic.methods.elemental.air have been replaced wit...

Tanning kits have undergone some small revisions.

You will now find that tanning skins of smaller sizes will use less guild points than those of larger sizes and you will now receive a message stating how well you tanned a skin when you do so.

Additionally, they have been made slightly more durable and more expensive by manufacturers and retailers in anticipation of the flood of customers looking to try out these new features.

And finally, tanner's kits and the various supplies needed for dyei...

Enchantment on custom items ordered from Ug Ogg should now play nicely with Gryntard's Feathery Reliever.

Ug has also made some minor additions and improvements to his catalogue and customisation options, and will include coverage in the information provided before completing an order. An order can now be cancelled at any time, for a fraction of the full cost.

Casting Changes, posted on Tue Jan 8 23:00:47 2013

There have been a couple of changes to casting spells that should fix some issues with the "using" syntax of the cast command, eg "cast mother feelbright's busy bees on soldier using 10 dollops of honey" and "cast tpa on me using 1 handful of ash in backpack and shield in backpack" should now work.

In addition to this, if an item is taken from a component pouch while casting, the code will attempt to return non-consumed items to the same container after the spell has finished.

Thieves can now choose to "check/read quota brief" or "check/read receipts brief" for a more condensed summary.

The warpaint command can now be used without specifying the paint, which will use any paint available in what you are carrying or in a container previously identified as 'component pouch'.

The spell Old Bellicus' Brazen Knuckles has undergone a slight rebalancing. This has resulted in a shorter maximum duration and a lower maximum damage, and the spell now stacking to a cap in a similar way to Chrenedict's Calcareous Covering.

Targetted offensive spells may now only be cast at player targets when both caster and target are PK. Also, PK death should no longer cause priests and followers to forget rituals.

It has come to Gapp's attention that members of his clergy have been seen wearing seriously unsophisticated armour that doesn't sit well with the God of Fine Clothing. As such, he has seen fit to grant his most devout followers a new way in which to appeal to his inherent stylish nature by beautifying the intrinsically ugly.

Religious instructors may be willing to teach those with sufficient skills inside his priesthood.
