Behind Closed Doors..., posted on Tue Oct 11 15:24:16 2011
Posted by: Tavish
Category: Guilds
Probing, picking and disabling of locks and traps has been updated. The general principles remain the same but you should gain more of an advantage than before by successfully probing before picking a lock or disabling a trap.

As part of the update, the skill requirements across the range of lock and trap difficulty levels has been fixed and rationalised. For this reason you may find that you're unable to pick/disable some traps that you previously could and may need to train you skills a bit m...

Category: Guilds
An expedition by a group of witches to discover the whereabouts of Gammer Shorga's cottage has been successful. It was found in the centre of what was thought to be a dense jungle, but actually turned out to be magical vines growing rampant. Granny Weatherwax was called in to tame the cheeky creepers and in the process discovered a new spell created by Gammer Shorga. She may be willing to teach it to worthy witches.

The warpaint command can now be used with camouflage paint sticks (some are available in the Hunters' guild and Lancre Highland Regiment).

As posted, all ordered wizards can now vote in any Senior Wizard election. The votes of a wizard belonging to the ord...

Category: Special
If you ignore someone and give a reason, and you really want them to know

what the reason is, you can now let them know.

Set options personal ignore_explain to "on" and when they someone you are

ignoring tries to tell you something, they will be told why you are

ignoring them.

Completely independent of the new option; if you are ignoring someone for a

period of time, they will be told how much time is left if they try to send

you a tell.

Raise dead can now only be performed on a player ghost if the priest (or other performer of the ritual) has been permitted by that player.

Also, there is a new syntax at high altars to allow you to meditate to remove divine protection.

And as a reminder...

Thieves' Guild heavies are now heavying thieves with excessive fines. Individuals with excessive fines will be treated like unlicensed thieves and will be heavied whenever they steal in AM.
