Posted by: Kaylar
Category: Guilds
A new mess hall has been written by Vershik and added to the Klatchian Foreign Legion outpost. The sleeping area now also doubles as a hospital and may be of interest to anyone wanting to hone their firstaid skills.

Feint, posted on Fri Jun 12 12:20:42 2009

Feint is now using tactics as the defensive skill again. Some extra limitations have been added which should help make it less

Posted by: Kaylar
Category: Special
Two new categories have been added to the "idea special" syntax, they

are "sheet_music" and "craft_patterns". These can be used to submit ideas

for new patterns for pottery, embroidery, quilting, bodging, goldsmithing

and engraving, and new sheet music for musical instruments.

If you are interested in submitting ideas, please read the appropriate

help file: "help craft patterns" or "help sheet music".

These new categories should only be used to submit idea reports for

complete patterns or music...

Mrs. Daycoparge in the Musicians' Guild in AM now sells a decoratable guitar that

can be smashed, for all you Music With Rocks In star wannabes out there.

The defense skill for "feint" has changed from dodge/parry/block to fi.sp.tactics and feints can now be done unarmed.

In addition to this, it is now possible to abscond after a feint.

Spell Fixes, posted on Sun May 10 13:28:42 2009

A couple of ideas have been implemented and bugs fixed with some spells:

Using "shields" or looking at yourself/someone with a chalk skin created by

Chrenedict's Calcareous Covering now gives some indication of how many

Shields For TPA/major Shield, posted on Sat Apr 18 02:08:34 2009

origami paper shields that were considerably lighter and smaller than others

available. These shields were later removed but it was not practical to remove

There are now two shops that sell furniture that can be decorated with

stencils or appliques, painted (with wall paint) or polished (with beeswax).

One shop is located on Phedre Road in Ankh-Morpork and another can be found

in Mad Stoat.

Thanks to Brandi for the furniture, shop and NPC descriptions for Mad Stoat

and Chilali for the descriptions for AM.

Aquilo has made a small change to Klein bottles; opening a bottle and releasing the spell in it will now increase background magic levels instead of giving it a chance to reform.
