Terminal Type Warning Message, posted on Sun Jul 12 19:17:20 2015

If you are getting the message:

Your terminal type is set to ansi, but your client says it can do better.

That is because your client says it supports the 256 colour mode.

For those who use ansi to get different standard colours from the default mxp ones, the

xterm256 setting will stop this message and still use those same colours.

Pets are not packhorses. Players who may have been using pets as packhorses might wish to ensure that anything valuable being carried by their pet(s) is not at risk of being lost if their pet(s) drop all their inventory.

Non-playerkillers wishing to engage in some combative action against worthy opponents may now do so in the PK arena in the Tsortean desert.

The PK rules have been amended with a "Temporary PK Status" section, explaining the limits of PK/NPK interaction in such areas.

One Twingo Twizy opened up a stall on Sator Square where he sells a selection of "magical trinkets".

Whether they are indeed as magical as the owner claims still requires confirmation but it can be stated with certainty that these objects are indeed trinkets.

Special Abilities, posted on Sun Apr 12 18:30:23 2015

As part of the ongoing project to update combat, a new feature has been added: special abilities.

Players can learn a specific ability, suited to their playing style, to increase their aptitude in a specific area of combat.

A more explanation is given in "help special abilities".

Four statues with corresponding abilities have already been made available: one in the Djelibeybi harbour, one in the Sto Lat cemetery, one in Morpork and one in Genua.

Enjoy!

Bing!

If you are using "tactics focus <zone>" to focus on a specific zone in combat, you may occasionally find yourself missing an opportunity to hit (using base rounds).

If you are currently focused as a default, you may want to turn this off, and rather only use focus when the situation calls for it.

Pit.

Legitimate "Leggy" First, caretaker of the Small Gods Cemetery, would like to make it known that a section of the graveyard has been cleared to make room for a memorial in honour of the late Sir Terry Pratchett. Visiting hours have been expanded. Please be reminded that the main entrance to the cemetery is located on the Street of Cunning Artificers.

Also please do not loiter, litter or commit larceny within the grounds and respect the staff’s lunch breaks.

A couple of bugs have been fixed with how clothing warms you up/cools you down. You may notice some items suddenly behaving differently in this regards. Further, individual items' properties may get tweaked in the near future.
