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...

The package delivery jobs available in Genua harbour now have a wider and hopefully less frustrating range of possible targets. (In particular, frequently-killed casino employees and wandering unscryable preachers are absolutely no longer allowed on the list.) The XP and money rewards have also been slightly increased, and the lockout time before you can take on another job has been decreased.

Dear thieves,



A couple of achievements have been adjusted to make them be more about persistent acts of thievery and less about staying logged in for unhealthy amounts of time. Specifically, the requirement for reaching the top of the leaderboard a number of times has been removed from Thief Extraordinaire and Mazda's Hero. Instead, they now require you to pay A$96000 and A$256000 towards your quota.



If you have already reached one or both of these totals but "ach details <achievement>" s...

The ritual "detect alignment" is now granted to priests of all player-worshippable deities, and the skill requirement for learning it has been standardised between them.

- 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...

In celebration of the recent Lunar New Year, the authorities, citizens and underworld denizens of Bes Pelargic have been doing some soul-searching and self-improvement. Lots of minor things have been fixed here and there, but here's a summary of the ones that you are most likely to notice:

- The plants sold at the Phoenix Avenue plant shop are now placeable as furniture, and have also been made lighter to allow you to put them on tables if that suits your aesthetic better.

- One Tender Tulip...

Two previously non-crackable safes in Genua are now crackable. Please note that the NPCs in these rooms are not just there for decoration.

Relatedly, the guards in Genua harbour who carry iron chains are now a bit more aware of the most effective way to use them. If you had been relying on their previous (buggy) behaviour, you may now find them harder to kill.

The quest listings page on the website has been updated to allow you to split the listings into completed and uncompleted quests.

Relatedly, the quest command in the MUD, when invoked as "quest list all" or "quest list <area>" now defaults to dividing the list into completed and uncompleted. If you want the old behaviour, you can get it by using the syntax "quest list interleaved all" or "quest list interleaved <area>".
