Killing Time, posted on Wed May 8 14:10:58 2024

Category: Guilds
This month's Bugfix Weekend was focused on warriors, but we also have a few little faith-related treats.

The alignment-based messages that are shown to a person who actively leaves a deity's passage room are now also shown to the people following that person. (These messages have no actual effect - they're just for flavour.)

Faith shields lasting more than two years were supposed to print special messages when viewed with the "shields" command, but there was a bug preventing this. That bug ha...

The Face Of Things To Come, posted on Mon Apr 1 19:59:45 2024

The Face of things to come.

The Fools have continued in their obstinate refusal to Face the fact that they are a joke guild.

Brother Emmett has managed to procure some more stock including a circus tent and some new clothes for those who want to take their show on the road.

Brother Boffo, in addition to tidying up the ledgers containing existing faces so that one can find a registered face more easily, has created a set of forms that can be used to guide a new Fool in the art of creating ...

The Gods of Discworld have been in a giving mood over Hogswatch, and have decided to distribute one last set of boons to their faithful before turning their attention back to important Cori Celesti infighting.


* Sufficiently skilled players can now break out of stasis spheres with unarmed strikes.

* It is now possible travel to the air room via Divine Hand.

* The helpfile for Horror has been updated to clarify that it can be performed while holding a faith rod.

* Holy Insight now h...

Happy Hogswatch From The Gods Of Discworld, posted on Fri Dec 22 09:17:47 2023
Posted by: Kadath
Category: Guilds
In the spirit of Hogswatch, the Gods of the Discworld have done the unthinkable and actually agreed on something:

It has been decided that Priests and Followers who stray out of their God's preferred alignment will no longer immediately lose access to all their rituals. Instead, a hefty penalty will be applied to the difficulty, effectiveness and GP cost of the ritual that will become more severe the further the individual strays from their God's dictated alignment.

PLEASE NOTE: This is bein...

Over Our Quota On Bug Fixes, posted on Wed Nov 8 14:27:16 2023
Posted by: Kadath
Category: Guilds
A number of additions, improvements and bug fixes have been made throughout the Ankh-Morpork Guild of Thieves and beyond. Below is a list of the most noteworthy changes.


- A bug in backstab has been fixed. Previously, if you tried to backstab while your inventory was still regenerating, the attempt would go through but you wouldn't get any attacks. Now the attempt is prevented entirely, so you don't lose GP for no reason.

- Scope now works properly for items sold in container...

Custom Prayer Books, posted on Tue Nov 7 18:30:18 2023
Posted by: Guildenstern
Category: Guilds
The cellar scriptorium of the Temple of Gapp in Genua is now accessible. Guillaume Bindere works there, and he would prefer that you not bother him so that he can finish his novel in peace. However, please do feel free to bother him by getting him to make custom prayer books for you, because quite frankly the Disc can wait a bit longer for his novel.

Recovering Mortal Remains, posted on Thu May 11 17:05:11 2023

The find corpse ritual has been updated:

- It now requires a target when you perform it instead of asking at the end. See help find corpse for details on the syntax.

- A bug with some of the distance indicators is fixed.

- It now is clearer when some poor soul happens to have more than one corpse.

- You can now find your own corpse if you lose track of it.


The Hidden Articles, posted on Thu Apr 13 03:48:58 2023

Articles such as "A", "An" or "The" added to deluded items will now be hidden appropriately in messages that mention those items.


She has A Student Wizard floating around her.

The wise monk swings at you but your floating Student Wizard swoops in and absorbs all of the blow.

Arcane Machinations, posted on Tue Apr 11 12:11:58 2023

Thanks to an unprecedented few days of reluctant cooperation and minimal[1] bickering, the various orders of wizardry (and hedge wizardry) have been able to iron out a number of thaumic wrinkles with various spells, artifacts and magical miscellanea. The most noteworthy of these changes are summarised below:

Jogloran's Portal of Cheaper Travel (JPCT)

- Burning portals from JPCT should now interact in more intuitive ways with things like hand and foot armour, as well as elemental shielding.

Papilio Tempestae Ad Nauseam., posted on Fri Apr 7 15:16:27 2023
Posted by: Aristophanes
Category: Guilds

I have taken the wizard spell Patient Taming of the Quantum Weather Butterfly firmly by the metaphorical scalp and shaken it up and down a bit.

You will notice that there is now a physical weather lotus in the room when you cast the spell, as well as the fact that the temperature command will report how much the weather orb is affecting you.

The most important functional (rather than cosmetic) change is that the temperature change effected by a weather orb will only be able to affect others if...
