SILENCE In The Library!, posted on Mon Jun 8 10:05:13 2009
Posted by: Touchstone

I've made some changes to the code which stops you casting spells or performing rituals in Unseen University's library. The result is that you still can't, but you can perform tricks with your yo-yo or solos on your musical instrument now.

While I was there, I installed some reading lecterns for the books to stand on, rather than just having them lying around unhygienically as they had been for years.

Wizards can now order clouds to change colour, so as to better distinguish their clouds when working with other wizards. Or to make sure that their outfits don't clash.

Greebo is getting on in years, and will now cause players to fumble a maximum of two items from their inventory should he swipe them or rub against them.

Skade has recently implemented the 'afk' command. Not only can you

inform people who talk you you of your afk status, you can also

write a custom message for their amusement.

Djelian Business Picks Up With Improved Advertising, posted on Wed Jun 3 03:31:33 2009

For Crying Out Loud...

The word is out on the street. The Djelibeybi madmen have taken employment with one Djopra Phaci.

She's located in a small hut in the hood, which operates as a full service Djelian messaging operation.

If you want to list, add or delete messages for the madmen, you can do that at her hut - but for a fee.

The madmen are always still willing to take direct payments of course (and cutting out the middleman can save you money).

As hinted in my last post, there is a Second Phase to the changes. New

players no longer have to play for 30 minutes before saving. This is to

work around abusable bugs.

Cheers,

Weight Watching, posted on Mon Jun 1 16:07:20 2009

The weight of _new_ players is no longer random. All new players will

begin with a weight of 80 kilos. Rearranging will affect this in the

usual way.

This change was made to remove the incentive to create a swarm of throw-away

characters, searching for a high initial number of hitpoints. Without such

swarms, we can make some other changes that we need to make to close some

abusable loopholes.

Cheers,

Ptoink

Some kinds of makeup were not being properly washed off by water. Now they

are.

Djelibeybi Loves Learning, posted on Mon Jun 1 00:20:36 2009

Djelibeybi has a new language school!

Massive renovations occured, and in light of the perpetual flooding during Inundation, the main classrooms were moved upstairs to the newly added second floor.

Come to the school if you're foreign and want to learn Djelian, or to learn Ephebian and Morporkian for the locals.

Make sure you grab a snack from the vending machine in the student lounge, and return your textbook when you've passed your final exam.
