Remedial Changes, posted on Thu Nov 13 21:59:29 2014

As per various idea reps and my own thoughts on the subject, the messages you get when healed with a hp-curing ritual (cure light wounds, cure medium wounds, cure serious wounds, and heal) are now differentiated by deity.

They also change according to how much the ritual is healing you.

There are a few other changes to messages and things as well, but I'll let you investigate those yourselves :)

Guild Office Storage, posted on Tue Sep 23 15:09:40 2014
Posted by: Aristophanes
Category: Guilds
Admin offices in most guilds come with wardrobes or cabinets that the occupiers can use as storage.

Some of these (Thieves, Hashishim, Conlegium Sicariorum, Mano Rossa) previously allowed you to inadvertently lose your stored possessions if you were to resign from your position, or otherwise be removed, before you had the chance to retrieve your belongings.

This has now been changed somewhat - if you are removed from your position (and therefore lose access to your office and storage) before you ...

Guaranteed to have the freshest seafood in Ephebe, the Seasick Sea Serpent is now opening its doors to the general public. Owned by Captain 'Mahogany Head' Mick and located on Dockside walk, be sure to say hello to the lobsters when you visit.



Also, feel free to visit the kitchen and watch the cooks in action as they prepare meals but just be sure to stay out of the back room.

PS. This was technically Kirves' newbie project (well done Kirves!), but a few other projects of his h...

Happy testing :)

Death's Overtime, posted on Mon Mar 3 19:45:37 2014
Posted by: Aristophanes
Category: Guilds
Death has noticed an alarming tendency for people to die their final deaths, and subsequently rely upon the Rite of AshKente to return - forcing him to work a considerable amount of overtime in the process.

Suffice it to say that he has become tired of all the extra unnecessary work, and has made Arrangements to ensure that his time is adequately compensated.

(Translation: As per the Frog post warning, the changes to the Rite of AshKente have now been implemented. The changes relate to conseq...

Bursting The Bubble, posted on Thu Feb 13 16:52:28 2014

Death has recently noticed an alarming trend in the Discorporation and Soul-removals markets.

In order to stop a bubble developing, he has circulated a memo to the Conlegium Sicariorum, Ninja, Mano Rossa, and Hashishim guilds advising them to no longer charge a premium for their services on clients with limited lives remaining.

Unsurprisingly, his advice has been taken.

Fluffy Bunnies And Their Masters, posted on Tue Jan 21 17:59:11 2014

The spell Doctor Kelleflump's Deadly Demon used to give messages about "flesh" in its damage feedback messages even when it was being cast on trees, stone palms, or trolls.

This has now been fixed.

You will find that you get slightly different messages, depending upon what species you summon demons against.

You might also find that a demon biting into someone's face can have an additional effect.

More Attractive Than Ever Before, posted on Tue Jan 21 17:50:24 2014

Greetings!

For those among you who use the spells Nargl'frob's Empyrean Spear and Journey of the Heavenly Storm Dragon, be warned:

A greater number of metal materials than before are now considered "metallic" by these spells.

If you do happen to make a habit of holding something metallic while casting - but which didn't previously attract backfires - you might get a nasty surprise.

Absolutist Relativism In A Thaumotological Environment., posted on Thu Jan 16 21:15:32 2014

The wizard spells Narglfrob's Empyrean Spear, Journey of the Heavenly Storm Dragon, and Doctor Kelleflump's Deadly Demon have had their damage feedback changed.

Whereas previously they gave messages based upon absolute ranges of damage - 500-1000 HP, or 300-500 HP, for instance - they now give messages based upon the percentage of total HP the caster has removed from their victims.

This means that while you might manage to gain the highest damage message when casting NES on a rat (because that ...
