The recent renovation of the Post Office has driven up the demand for writing implements and stationery, and in the proper Morporkian spirit, an entrepreneur has seized the opportunity and opened a calligraphy shop. Mr Vitiolo sells various implements and is willing to take orders for custom stationery. He and his shop can be found on Brookless Lane.

Followers are now able to contribute to the deity point pool through prayer. Priests' prayers are still more effective in this regard, however.

Members of the Thieves' Guild must now make the conscious decision to specialise - skill increases above a certain level will not trigger this automatically. The limits on advancement before specialisation are unchanged.

The main branch of the Ankh-Morpork Post Office has undergone a major refurbishment and is now employing some new staff in the hopes that the backlog of letters in the sorting and dead letter offices might finally get delivered.


Meddling With The Combat Formulas, posted on Mon Dec 8 10:36:19 2014
Posted by: Pit
Category: General
Three new changes to the combat system have made their way into the game!

* Heavy weapons should now be a bit easier to use, even with strength well below the maximum.

* A bug which caused the effect of both enchantment and weapon damage to be doubled, has been fixed.

* If you focus on a fixed zone, you may now occasionally find yourself missing.

Beware that the same holds for NPCs: if there were previously any NPCs who were using a weapon they did not have the strength for, you may now find th...

From now on, you can see new blog entries in the game using the "blog [new]" or "blog new <blog>" syntaxes.

This will still show you the blog if you have already seen it on the web pages, but not if you have read it using the "blog view" syntax.

Category: General
Players and NPCs set to a neutral defensive response will now automatically adapt their response to the situation better.

That is, while someone set to neutral response should still both parry and dodge, against a given opponent you may now see one of the two much more often than the other. For example, when you're fighting something with a big sword while you yourself hold a tiny knife, you're probably going to be dodging instead of parrying.

It is worth noting that NPCs have *also* been adapt...

Capping Skills, posted on Sat Nov 22 12:36:11 2014
Posted by: Pit
Category: Special
Over the years, many players have accumulated skills far beyond levels that were originally intended for players to achieve. This has a somewhat detrimental effect on certain aspects of the game, in particular playerkilling.

As such, we are introducing a new feature that will allow playerkillers to fight on a more even footing.

*** DON'T PANIC ***

The newly introduced skillcap command is strictly voluntary. It allows you to (temporarily) lower your skills to a certain...
