Here's the latest batch of updates, tweaks and fixes from your lovely creator team:

- Playershop greeter imps have finally learned how to speak Brindisian, Dwarfish and Klatchian. (If yours is not co-operating, please ask a liaison to update the room, or wait for the next reboot.)

- The output of the temperature command has been clarified, removing the need to wonder (or argue about) whether "a lot of warmth" is more than or less than "quite a lot of warmth".

- The weights of garlic clov...

Happy that she has made a difference, Maisey has decided to go back out on the road.

She's taken a bunch of Fools Guild admin forms with her so she can train and recruit on her travels and has left details of her tour dates in the reception Office.

Maisey is most pleased by the lack of fresh corpses around the Fools guild now. As a reward she has made some new items available to those who have shown themselves worthy.

Maisey Bent has continued to find ways to improve the Fools Guild. Working on suggestions from the Fools she has talked to she has negotiated with the alchemists and has managed to secure some peculiar substances that burn with different colours.

Discworlds elemental forces have also caught up with recent events and wetness and foolish fireballs will now work more realistically together.

Maisey Bent is already complaining about having to tidy away charred corpses of Fools. To avoid this happening so often she has devised a method of determining how powerful a fuel is without having to put it in your mouth and set fire to it.

She has also restricted sales of some of her items to those who have proven they know how to use said items safely[1].

[1] well, wisely[2]

[2] no, sensibly....argh! You know what I mean!

Having heard that the Fools' Guild was a joke, Maisey Bent has taken a break from her travels to see what she can do to help out around the guild.

She has just arrived and doesn't know how best to assist but we're sure that she will find her feet in the next few days.

In the meantime please say hello and make her feel a home.

* A bug with the squirming black tentacle has been fixed. You can no longer hold this with any of your limbs (even the normal ones) when under the effects of Booch's Extremal Polymorphism. On the bright side, this means that your tentacle will no longer be eaten by a silent runtime error.

* Playerhouse rooms can now have up to six different types of decoration on the surfaces (floor, ceiling, walls) before the description gets collapsed into "X are multicoloured". (If you have a room that stil...

* In other woodworking news, gingko ri...

I have updated how you can refer to scrolls by the spell they hold. You no longer have to fully specify the spell name and may just use parts of the name.

This fixes a bug that made it impossible to refer to a Cherry Blossoms in Bloom scroll (or A Cup of Tea and Sake scroll if you had options input andascomma=on).

Existing scrolls will only be updated when they next load, so if you have any issues with a scroll you can su with it in your inventory to fix it.
