* hsoul now also includes emotes, and has an option to filter only player souls

* a new command hsay captures all says, saytos, whispers and so on

* a new command hcomm combines the communication from htell, hsoul and hsay

With the renewed opening of the gates of Ephebe, traders in valuable goods have started regularly undertaking the journey between Ephebe and Ankh-Morpork. The trip, however, is hazardous, and due to the value of their caravan, these traders will usually require the help of a combat-competent escort.

Interested parties are encouraged to wander over to the Onion Gate in Ankh-Morpork, or Tyrant's Gate in Ephebe, and enquire for more details (a room help file is also provided).

Taking items from carts, such as those used by delivery men in Sto Lat, will now trigger a response.

Part of this response is that this action will be considered theft. Theft has repercussions in certain locations, so be careful.

This also means a PK check has been introduced.

Theodor Hackett, resident of Park Lane, Sto Lat, could use some help expanding his collection of iconographs about Ankh-Morpork, jewel (of a kind) of cities, as his mobility is somewhat reduced these days.

Ozzie Guntram's Glaze And Go!, posted on Fri Sep 21 10:41:44 2012

Having seen the recent success of the Ankh-Morpork Jobbe Market, local entrepreneur Ozzie Guntram has bought out the old pottery store in Sto Lat!

He is known as a shrewd businessman who's due to make a kiln-ing, but his friends know his eyes glaze over when it comes to actually making saucers. His orders are piling up, but he can't fulfil them in time.

Perhaps, somewhere in the disc someone may be able to plate over the cracks, and take a break from the croc(ery) pit to be able to lend him...

These can now be smashed to produce thaum bombs in the same way that the crystal balls can. They produce two shards per egg.

The Wallet Shop in Sto Lat has been reinstated. Since we really don't know if the money container bug is gone, you would be CRAZY MAD FOOLS to use them.

Crystal balls are making a triumphant return to the game, albeit with numerous changes! For one, there are different skill checks, for another there are more skill checks, and for another still they now get distorted by high background magic. You can also smash them for Fun and Profit and access to Thaum Crystals.

Enjoy, until they need to be taken out of the game again![1]
