Ritual Bug Fixes, posted on Sun Feb 14 00:05:18 2010
Posted by: Kaylar
Category: Guilds
A good number of bugs on rituals have been fixed.



* Major shield and Security Blanket now display whether a particular

performance strengthened, weakened or merely extended them.

* Security Blanket now displays duration in 'shields'

* Relief wards now transfer GPs from the thief to the victim, rather

than vice versa.

* It is harder to perform rituals on people who are in staunchly

atheistic places.

* Searing touch now, well, works.

* Dust devils have greater than 0 levels in their fightin...

We've added a briefcase to the AM Assassin's post-graduate shop. It locks with a combination lock, and can hold a mini-inhumation kit.

Enjoy!

The spells Journey of the Heavenly Storm Dragon and Nargl'frob's Empyrean Spear will soon[1] be changing to use the same method to determine whether to backfire as a result of holding certain objects.

Currently Spear will backfire if the caster is holding an object that does a pierce or sharp attack, this includes wooden objects such as wooden javelins and other non-metal items like quills. Storm Dragon currently backfires if any metal object is held. This is confusing since both spells essentia...

Spell Components, posted on Sat Feb 6 10:04:20 2010

Category: Guilds
A bug was fixed with spells when casting with the "using" syntax meaning

that it should no longer be possible to cast a spell using components in

another player's inventory. As a side-effect of this, you may now only

use components in your room or in your own inventory. If you target a

component that is in a container of yours then it will attempt to take

the component out even if the container is not a component pouch.

The barbarians are glad to welcome Hugh and his pub to the seasonal Hublandish Barbarians' camps. You can find Hugh in the active camp (which camp site is active depends on the season), and enjoy a merry beverage or two. Hugh has also invented a dice game for you to play: just roll the die and see how much you win. Or don't win.

There is a new achievement for Hugh's dice game. Whilst we were in the mood, we also added a couple of achievements for Klondike solitaire (a set can be found in ...

All spells which cause damage on backfiring should now bring up the caster's HP monitor in the case of such an unfortunate incident. (Assuming said caster has the monitor option turned on, that is.) If you find one that doesn't, please bugrep it.

Please note that no additional damage has been added - it's just that the damage that was always occuring is now more apparent.

The priests of Sto Lat have finally managed to persuade one of their number to take up permanent residence as an instructor in Pishe's temple. Young Brassica seems quite comfortable in her new home, and hopes her sisters and brothers in Pishe won't be too tardy in coming to say hello to her.

Custom knives from the Klatchian Foreign Legion should now behave more in line with the materials they're made of; for example, Klatchian steel knives are now more effective and more durable than cardboard knives. In addition, owners of klatchian steel knives will find they are now proud owners of Klatchian steel knives, and wielders of cardboard knives may wish to experiment with writing on their weapons.

(You may need to su for these changes to take effect.)
