Events Command, posted on Wed May 11 01:32:04 2011
Posted by: Kaylar
Category: Guilds
A new command called "events" has been added to help with the advertising of player-run events. Event organisers can use it to add an event for a particular player group (such as witches, roleplayers or all) with a start time. More details about the event can then be added in the editor. Events can be listed based on who they are for and more details can be viewed.

More information can be found in "help events".

You can choose to see informs for player-run events added with the "events" command...

George is once again being affected by background magic: high levels seem to be causing some of his bottles to become... strange. George is happy to hand over these Klein bottles to witches and wizards, seeing as they might be able to find a use for them.

In possibly related news, reports that spells are leaking from the books in Unseen University library have started to circulate. So far the resident wizards don't appear to have a plan of action, but the general consenus is that these energie...

Thieves Misplace Fingers, posted on Sat Mar 19 04:16:51 2011

The "Fingers" pre-title has been removed from the list of titles granted to thieves by Kordane and other recruiters.

Instead, it is now gained through getting the "Mazda's Hero" achievement.

Two Ritual Changes, posted on Fri Feb 11 04:06:16 2011

Two small ritual changes:

Kaylar has made parch usable on items. This is particularly useful for crafts where you need to wait for items to dry.

The insect swarms summoned by creeping doom are now able to devour corpses. This makes them more dangerous to everyone around them, including the caster. The sizes have also changed, but this is a change in scale and description, rather than a change in actual power.


Wizards Suites, posted on Fri Jan 14 06:55:52 2011
Posted by: Kaylar
Category: Guilds


The leaseable suites available in the Sto Lat Wizards' Guild have gone back on the market.

They are no longer restricted to students - all wizards can bid on them. Non-students will have to increase their bid by a greater amount. Members of the Ancient and Truly Original Brothers of the Silver Star must increase by 30%, but those under GL 100 may bid 10% more (like student wizards). Other wizards must increase their bids by 50% unless they are under GL 100, in which case the minimum increase is...

Warriors skilled in special weapons and a certain combat technique may find they are now able to launch a "wildswing" attack against their opponents.

Good luck.

Valuable Information, posted on Tue Nov 2 01:15:23 2010

The "value" command has been given some attention:

A new syntax allows you to value things in the local currency.

Misjudging the value of something now gives a more random value rather than a fixed (but wrong) one.

Powdered gems are no longer classified as gems.

How difficult something is to value no longer depends solely on its value, but on the properties of the item.


Fumble Changes, posted on Tue Oct 26 01:35:32 2010

Fumble has been altered so that it causes the target to fumble the item to their inventory, rather than dropping it.


Guilds Tweaks, posted on Mon Oct 4 23:51:17 2010
Posted by: Kaylar
Category: Guilds
Members of the Guilds domain have made the following changes recently:

* Gapp's low altar no longer checks whether an item is kept, as you never actually lose possession of the item.

* Pishe's pool now stops you before you toss coins in if you would not be able to buy a life.

* Incense is now burnable, including in the incense burners scattered around major temples.

* House scarves are now available in the AM Assassins' Guild.

* The tailor at the Mano Rossa now tells you how the suit looks befo...

Members of the hashishim guild can now "ask" to be hoisted by rope into their guild, if they aren't sure about the relevant climbing skills.
