There have been several changes to the witch spell Gammer Shorga's Helpful Undergrowth.

These have been implemented with the aim of making things fairer for a witch's victims while still giving the witch the opportunity to have their wicked way with them.

Some of the changes are as follows:

1) Stacking/merging of vines. The number of vines that can entangle a victim has been capped. A low level witch will take more casts to reach this cap than a high level one. A low level witch and a high level witch both casting on the same victim may have additional effects.

2) Cutting of vines with weapons. A number of bugs in the cutting of vines have been fixed. The number of vines removed when you cut with different sharp weapons may now be different.

3) Cutting of vines with lion paws. It is now possible to cut off vines using the claws obtained by wearing and extending lion paws.

4) Failing to cut vines. The "negative consequences" (blindness, having your weapon stolen, etc) that cutters sometimes suffer when failing to cut through vines are now more likely to occur. On the other hand, the duration of these negative effects is shorter.

5) Pulling free. It is now possible to remove some vines by trying to move. This will not be as effective as cutting with a sharp weapon.

6) Weedkiller. This is no longer as effective at withering vines.

7) You can now refer to vines according to who is entangled in them.

For example, the following will now work: "look my vines", "look fran's vines", "look celt vines".

This list should not be considered exhaustive :)

An elderly-but-spry lady has taken up residence in a hut in the Harbourwalk of Ephebe. Rumour has it she's spent most of her life living alone in a cave in one of the Ephebian-controlled islands in the Circle Sea.

Any witches visiting her in her new abode may find that she has something interesting to teach them if they possess sufficient skill.
