Borst Besensteel in Copperhead now sells broom stencils in his shop. These can be used in conjunction with a tin of paint and a small stencilling sponge[1] to apply a stencilled design to a broomstick.

Those wishing to apply a stencil to their broomstick will need a quite respectable degree of painting skill, and should be able to apply stencils to any kind of broomstick. Note that custom broomsticks can only be stencilled if they do not already feature a 'decoration' from Borst.

Important No...

Borst Besensteel, in Copperhead, has been rationalising his business processes a bit. You can once more order a box of six jars of broom polish in your chosen scent and finish, this time by talking to him rather than with a room command. You may in the process find yourself committing tax fraud, but in the final analysis, being a witch is a form of tax fraud anyway.

Ninja who have passed the Chunin Test, but not the Ru Noperi, should now be able to close Agatean family inhumation contracts like any other graduate.

Tea & The Tanuki, posted on Fri Mar 18 10:39:22 2022

I've added some new items to the list of things you can make in the Sung pottery room: a flask, a gaiwan, an incense burner, and a statue of a tanuki. This is leaning into the "British reception of Asia as a multicultural mishmash" aspect of Agatea, given that's what we've inherited from the books and previous development cycles - some of the pottery is explicitly Korean inspired, to go with the Chinese & Japanese influences we have already present.



In addition, the teacups that you can make...

- Shopkeepers in Genua will now no longer attack you for saying "you" or nodding at them. (This was a bug, totally unintentional, and should not have been happening.)

- The cakes sold at the AM wedding shop now stay fresh for longer than a couple of hours. The shop also now sells a selection of cake knives.

- A new warrior-only title-granting achievement has been added: Bloodspattered.

- The requirements for the Morporkian Carriages achievements (Bouncy Seat, Bussed It, Street Rider, and Rou...

- It’s now possible to create a no-theft league by using the syntax "league create <name> without theft". Please note that if two members are also in another league that does allow theft, then they can still steal from each other, since league permissions are defined by the most permissive league.

- Fingerless gloves no longer prevent you from having a manicure or viewing your fingernails. However, they will also no longer protect your fingernails from combat damage.

- Some of the pets from...

Truffles, Tramps, And Thieves, posted on Fri Feb 11 22:21:44 2022

There have been several changes to how foraging for truffles works.

The main change is that truffles are now much easier to find. While the minimum skills to get started haven't changed, anything above that should result in a greater amount of more valuable truffles from your foraging expeditions.

The other changes are more cosmetic in nature:

1) Not every deciduous forest room will have truffles, but the ones that do will have much more than before.

2) In order not to waste time wit...

After seeing the excitement around the recent Lunar New Year celebrations, the calligrapher on Diamond Place in Bes Pelargic has decided to start selling lucky red envelopes. Have a read of the sign in his shop for more details.

Decorative embroidery is now visible when looking at items in the inventories of other players or NPCs (please note, this does not apply to text-only embroidery, which remains unreadable in line with other written-on items).

After a thorough reprimanding from the U...

The value of items made through woodworking has been increased! They do, however, have to be completed in order to reach their monetary potential.

Updating the values of items made prior to this change will require some more code updates, so please be patient while we work on that.
