Changes To Special Attacks, posted on Tue Mar 29 00:42:10 2011
Posted by: Turvity
Category: Special
For several reasons, the relationship between special attacks and weapon data has been changed.

Changes you may notice:

* The difficulty calculation for preparing specials has been changed to be based on the damage the weapon does, rather than on its weight versus your dexterity. This means that some weapons are harder and some are easier, but all are compared on the same scale.

* Specials now have a calculation determining the chances of actually landing them, making them less accurate than...

Two Ritual Changes, posted on Fri Feb 11 04:06:16 2011

Two small ritual changes:

Kaylar has made parch usable on items. This is particularly useful for crafts where you need to wait for items to dry.

The insect swarms summoned by creeping doom are now able to devour corpses. This makes them more dangerous to everyone around them, including the caster. The sizes have also changed, but this is a change in scale and description, rather than a change in actual power.

A few general fixes to furniture:

* Umbrella stands should now actually be able to hold umbrellas

* Small items that can be placed in your house (e.g. bowls and trophies)

* Wind chimes now respond to wind levels when placed in outside rooms like


A few new furnitures have also been added to various shops, mostly niche items.

Judge has been reworked somewhat to be more accurate in its results. Additionally, it should now take into account your skill with the weapon at hand when determining how effective it is.

Certain weapons were too slow because of a miscalculation in combat code. You may find that weapons that were unusably slow before are now viable.

Be warned that certain NPCs may be using such weapons too, so you may want to be careful in your usual haunts.

Hi. A few little changes for those of you who happen to play with the underwear and the stabbings.

* The racks in Capture the Flag have been completely reworked. You are no longer limited in the number of weapon racks that you may take. On the other hand, most non-weapon items are now in the utility racks, which are limited. Visit the arena and list and browse to see what went where.

* You will now receive your CTF amulet as soon as you enter the arena. This means that you can't accidentall...
