When "converse"ing, prepending the text you send with a ":" will now emote/remote that text instead of saying/telling it. As long as you know how to emote/remote, of course.

Safecracking Returns., posted on Sun Apr 1 11:30:30 2012
Posted by: Tavish
Category: Guilds
Kordane is once again willing to teach thieves with sufficient skill the arts of safecracking. The new crack command works with the new safes that can be found in various locations around the Disc. Most of the safes are hidden and some are well protected, so you'll need to be vigilant.

Any items removed from a safe will count as theft and dealt with in the usual manner appropriate to the location (items being retrieved that you placed in the safe yourself being exempt).

A number of new crac...

Some senior Unseen University Wizards have pinned down the details of an AshkEnte ceremony after the discovery of a spell book in the depths of the library. See 'help ashkente' for a description of their findings.

Some More Minor Changes, posted on Thu Mar 15 03:10:22 2012
Posted by: Cripsi
Category: Guilds
Forgetting a part-contemplated spell now also removes the part-contemplation, preventing you from accidentally cross-contemplating a spell you no longer know.

Mugwuddle's Muddling Mirage now stops the subject of the spell from pursuing at all. It also is now only possible to walk through a portal whilst under the effects of the spell if you actively aimed for it, however there is still no guarentee you will go the way you moved.

Special attacks now work with Old Bellicus' Brazen Knuckles.

Benvenuti A Little Brindisi!, posted on Wed Mar 7 12:47:47 2012
Posted by: Loutre
Category: Forn (domain pages)
The recent influx of Brindisian immigrants to Genua has left many of them feeling chipper and delighted to have so many of their compatriots about that they have gathered into one street together and practically recreated Brindisi on their own. In fact, they're so nicely settled there that they rarely have to speak Morporkian at all! Well, except to tourists, naturally.

The gods have taken notice of supplicators' plights and have relaxed Their requirements. Working on the example set by Pishe, the other gods have now incorporated a financial remuneration scheme into Their operation, which will ease your way into Their congragation.

For more information, please read 'help supplication'.
