Following on from the tweaks to the difficulty, mindspace, and GP cost of the Witches' lard spell (Granny Lipintense's Layer of Lard), some extra functionality has now been added.

1) The spell will now dry you off as well as keep you dry, in most situations.

2) The line in your description will indicate how much lard you have left - the thicker the layer of lard, the longer you have until it runs out.

3) The maximum thickness (and therefore duration) is capped. Re-casting once yo...

A new "temporal reality" option has been added under options output.

This will let you change whether NPCs give durations in Discworld or Roundworld hours. The default for everyone is Roundworld hours.

Remember that 1 Roundworld hour is approximately 3 Discworld hours.

In addition to the previously announced beesargh changes, there have been tweaks to other witch spells:

1) The witch enchantment spell, Mother Twinter's Yarrow Enchantment, has had its guild point cost reduced. Conversely, it now takes up more space in your mind.

2) The spell Granny Lipintense's Layer of Lard has been made slightly more difficult to cast. It also requires more guild points than before, and takes up more of your available mind space.

Have fun!

The witches' main damaging offensive spell, Mother Feelbright's Busy Bees, has been largely re-written to remove its reliance upon the fighting skill, fighting.range.thrown.

It is now a purely magical spell, relying upon your ability to summon and control a swarm of bees.

In addition to this:

* The skills crafts.pottery.forming.shaping and magic.methods.elemental.air have been replaced wit...

Hibiscus Dunelm, proprietor of the well-known Morporkian tavern the Mended Drum has been forced to stop offering his upstairs apartments and meeting room for rent. Asked for the reasons for shutting down these fairly popular short-term accomodations he refered to an incident with a giant ball of fluff, a hardboiled egg and a thimble. When pushed he just blushed and refused to offer any further details about said incident.
