The harbourwalk and underdocks of Ephebe are known to be frequented by those who play fast and loose with the letter of the law. Recently, a pair of such individuals have reportedly gone into business - two women who have rejected the widely-held view that it is perfectly acceptable to be completely naked when swimming in the bay or walking through the streets after bathing.

These worshippers of the great God Aegadon have committed themselves to selling bespoke swimwear and a wide variety of b...

A long, long time ago, Discworld proudly supported the graphical standards of the day by implementing the full ansi spectrum of sixteen colours. Since then, graphical standards have come a long way, and for quite some time now, Discworld has supported over sixteen million colours. However, many players have not been using them.

To remedy this waste of colourful possibilities, we have supplied about 240 additional colour names. Have a read of "help colours" and go wild setting your colours to ...

CTF should now be safe with the stored staff effect provided that the mud does not reboot during your game. Work continues to make it reboot safe for all effects, including floating shields, faith shields, bug shield and armoured skin.

Shattering relics in CTF will now adjust your alignment whilst in the arena. At the end of the game, your alignment will be reset to the value it had when entering the arena.

If you're in hiding, and you "look around", and someone in the room notices you, you will now be brought out of hiding. It *appears* that this was always the intent, it just wasn't happening.

Tactics Response Block, posted on Sun Mar 27 12:52:28 2016

For those whose primary defense is blocking, it is now possible to set your combat tactics response to block.

This has the same effect as setting your response to parrying and your parry hand to the hand holding your shield, except in that it does not matter what hand you hold the shield in. :)

Parry, dodge and neutral response still work as they always have. Thus, you don't *need* to set blocking response. The primary reason for this change was simply consistency and avoiding confusion. :)

A tailor in the back room also offers some more bespoke pieces for the more discer...

Berserk, posted on Sat Feb 20 15:49:19 2016
Posted by: Pit

The berserk command has seen some internal changes. In addition, two noticeable things have been changed:

* focus now no longer works while berserking (nor will you receive the focus penalty)

* the difficulty of defending yourself from specials is a bit larger than before, and you will not be able to avoid getting hit at all (although this should not be difficult to the point of impossibility)

If you notice other ways the command has changed, please do let me know, since those may not be intende...
