A bug in the baby kraken pet has been fixed, and so interactions between these pets and other wearable pets will now work more consistently. Specifically, wearable pets are intended to attack each other when you wear more than one of them. Before the bug was fixed, you could stop this from happening by wearing the other pet first and the baby kraken second. This inconsistency has been removed, and so the attack will now happen regardless of the order you wear them in.

* A small bug has been fixed in the SS Unsinkable's dragons, which will affect people with very low skills. There was meant to be a skillcheck to see whether you could see any information at all about a dragon's status, but the bug meant that this skillcheck was always succeeding. Wranglers without the skill to pass this check will no longer be able to see the abovementioned information.

* Relatedly, a new command - "check <dragon> [status]" has been added to the dragons to let wranglers see th...

A new restaurant has opened on Fast Street. Its proprietor and her wife are keen to share the joys of chaat - a category of Bharatri snack food that combines crunch, tang, sweetness and saltiness - with the residents of Ankh-Morpork, so make sure to take your friends and a good appetite along with you!

* Fairy godmothers are now able to speak ungarbled while underwater, and their instructions for getting them to help you have been clarified.

* As previously warned about on the Frog board, the sea serpent in the sailing mission will now break TPA and bugshield on the first hit.

* A few new items of Bharatri-themed clothing/jewellery have been added in Djelibeybi; specifically, in the posh dress shop, the wedding shop and the Ibis Parade clothes shop.

* The locate command has been updated to work...

Last month's craft-themed Bugfix Weekend was so much fun that we did it again! Here are the results.

* The values of finesmithed items have been improved in line with the cost of the minimum materials required to make them (i.e. the finesmithing process will now always add value, assuming you aren't using bars larger than the ones needed).

* The Agatean engraving book now has patterns for water buffalo and feathered crane designs.

* Quilting and embroidery needles can now be threaded directly fr...

* Priests' newbie chests would previously only allow their contents to be removed by players of under 18 hours in age (as well as High Priests and their ministers). This condition has now been relaxed slightly; players who are under 18 hours in age _or_ whose guild level is 25 or under will be able to take things.

* Monsieur Gabbiani now offers his Mano Rossa customers the option of trousers or a skirt when ordering a suit.

* The Hello Monkey! shop in Bes Pelargic has added some new clothing ite...

If you've been having trouble with the Timbered achievement due to being too good at dodging, you will now find that increasing your burden above 50% will help. Relatedly, if you're planning to hunt trees in the Ramtops and you prefer not to get squashed, decreasing your burden below 50% is now recommended. (The situation for people whose burden is exactly 50% is left as an exercise for those who enjoy finding things out.)

Several things to report from last weekend's craft-themed Bugfix Weekend:

* A single-use soft rag that will strip wax from woodworked items is now available wherever woodwork tools are sold.

* Crafted candles now last twice as long as they used to.

* Small silver needles, heavy duty needles, and whalebone needles are no longer weapons. (This is part of an ongoing change to improve the underlying code to stop us having to fix needle bugs/implement needle ideas in three separate places.)

* D...

The "groups" and "group list" commands now have extra syntaxes allowing you to specify brief output (e.g. "groups brief").

The Mano Rossa guild title "Rooftop Rambler" has been changed to "Socio Rossa", for a more in-theme feel. (Please note that this is cod Italian rather than real Italian, and so there is no need to typo rep the lack of noun-adjective agreement.)

Inhuming the Lag/Laggy-San now counts towards the Lagbuster achievement.

The feather charm available from the Harbour Marke...

The ice axe has been rebalanced to bring it in line with other weapons. Specifically: it no longer boosts your rope-climbing or tree-climbing bonuses, the rock-climbing boost is now capped, it no longer acts as a staff, it is heavier than before, and it deals less damage than before. If you had one stored in a star sapphire ring via Crondor's Marvellous Sequestration, you will be able to retrieve it but you will not be able to store it again.

As pre-announced on the Frog board a week ago, th...
