The 'age' command, performed on oneself, now also gives the time of your last refresh (if you've refreshed at all).

(This is what the age-related achievements count as your login date.)

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.

In a return to the old-fashioned days, the deities in Ephebe are now accepting animal sacrifices at their altars throughout the city, as well as donations and inanimate offerings.

The gods are fond of such displays, and tend to reward them generously.

As with donations and offerings, being a priest or follower of another deity will not penalise your attempts at pleasing other gods.

Zevgatis has opened a stall in Ephebe's Harbour Market to provide suitable sacrificial subjects.

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

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.

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 ...

The 'who' command (and its brief cousin 'qwho') have had some new options added. See 'help who' for all of its new powers.

In order for future developments to go ahead, several changes to goldsmithing (forging items in the Sto Lat Wizards' Guild) have been made.

These are:

- sculpting must now be done with the aid of a pattern book

- sculpting now uses the skill crafts.arts.sculpture for all items rather than one of two skills ( or cr.smithing.silver - these are still used in the forging of items), the bonuses needed for each pattern has been lowered to compensate

- items will only be damaged when s...

A Mr. Tychenos recently got off the boat from Ephebe with his family, located suitable premises on The Soake and opened a brand new general store.

Whether his foreign business accumen will prove enough to turn this into a viable enterprise in Ankh-Morpork's challenging environment remains to be seen, but Mr. Tychenos' entrepreneurship will certainly be applauded.
