Hunters, Watchers, And Souls, posted on Tue Jan 25 13:37:17 2022

Yesterday's fix to the Gods Truffler achievement unclogged a small logjam of cosmetic changes:

- the truffle hunters in Ramtops terrains are now more responsive when truffles and truffle pigs are involved.

- the bird watchers in Ramtops terrains now carry a pencil and a notepad in order to make notes about their experience.

- a few new souls were added, letting you nerf, sglance, cluck and chitter. Keep an eye out for "gag" as well.

The gods atop Cori Celesti had grown peckish and came knocking on The Lady's door wondering why the pantry was empty. An audit of her books discovered she'd fudged the dice which govern the probability of mortals stumbling upon the fabled truffle of the Gods -- it was about 1 in 12 duovigintillions.

That is a big number. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-boggingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long shot to win the lottery, but that's just peanuts to a duovigintillion...

Witches, Drink And Song!, posted on Mon Jan 17 15:34:34 2022

I've fixed two bugs in the hedgehog command:

* Hidden NPCs and players who can't resist the music will now come out of hiding when dancing.

* The punishment for singing the hedgehog song in Ankh-Morpork is fixed. You will now be contracted if you ignore the warnings given by the Musicians' Guild enforcers.

The candies and lollipops sold at Saccha Rose's shop on Long Hogmeat now turn your lips interesting colours.

The messages shown to casters when casting Wurphle's Midnight Snack are now more varied. No functional changes have been made - this is purely cosmetic.

The sno-balls sold in Genua can now be licked as well as eaten, and you don't even have to take them out of the cones to do so. They also now give more interesting messages.

After the popularity of the hedgehog, Mrs Corduroy of An...

Two previously non-crackable safes in Genua are now crackable. Please note that the NPCs in these rooms are not just there for decoration.

Relatedly, the guards in Genua harbour who carry iron chains are now a bit more aware of the most effective way to use them. If you had been relying on their previous (buggy) behaviour, you may now find them harder to kill.

Divine Tolerance Thresholds Increased, posted on Tue Jan 11 15:04:50 2022

After a meeting on Cori Celesti, Gapp, Sandelfon, Fish and Hat have decided to be a bit more tolerant of their followers' shifts in alignment.

Hence, priests of these gods should now find it a bit easier to stay in your gods' good graces!

The score align command now reflects the new status quo more accurately.

The quest listings page on the website has been updated to allow you to split the listings into completed and uncompleted quests.

Relatedly, the quest command in the MUD, when invoked as "quest list all" or "quest list <area>" now defaults to dividing the list into completed and uncompleted. If you want the old behaviour, you can get it by using the syntax "quest list interleaved all" or "quest list interleaved <area>".

Cravats Etc., posted on Sun Jan 9 11:23:14 2022

* You can now both tie all cravats in fashionable (or unfashionable) styles, and stick cravat pins in them.

* Iconographer's vests are now available from the iconography shop on the Ridings, Ankh-Morpork, for all your iconography needs. Or at least the ones that will fit in pockets.

* You can now stare at a lava lamp and feel it reflected in your soul.

A long-standing bug in the Genua wedding dress shop has been fixed; the wait time for custom dresses here is now in line with other Genuan custom wedding items.

The Genua custom wedding vendors have got together and synchronised their colour choices, as well as adding a few new pastels.

Jaqu Alufe in Genua and Huan Gong in Bes Pelargic now offer palladium as an option for their custom-made rings.

Soo-tsoo-sa in the Djelibeybi harbour now stocks a small selection of needles and threads f...
