In a return to the old-fashioned days, the deities in Ephebe are now accepting animal sacrifices at their altars throughout the city, as well as donations and inanimate offerings.

The gods are fond of such displays, and tend to reward them generously.

As with donations and offerings, being a priest or follower of another deity will not penalise your attempts at pleasing other gods.

Zevgatis has opened a stall in Ephebe's Harbour Market to provide suitable sacrificial subjects.

The 'who' command (and its brief cousin 'qwho') have had some new options added. See 'help who' for all of its new powers.

After months of philosophical discussion (aided by some stormy weather) the government of Ephebe has decided that the gods do, in fact, exist, and have lifted the ban on offerings to the gods.

Several altars have now been installed in the Ephebian streets and temples, all of which are happy to accept the donations and offerings of both tourists and locals.

The gods have been known to reward gifts that they approve of quite generously.

The Discworld pantheon is open-minded, and being a worshippe...

The 'climb' command has been tweaked so that 'climb assess' will now give more useful and accurate feedback. That is, the difficulty levels reported now correspond to roughly how difficult the climb will be.

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.

With the rather fluid nature of Time on the Disc some NPCs may take a few hours (of their choice) before they pay attention to your preferences. If after a couple of days they're still not giving times as they ought, pleas...
