The managers of McSweeney Restaurants in Ankh-Morpork and Genua have decided to open up employment to the masses. You are invited to work a shift in the kitchen, at the counter or on the cleaning staff. But be prepared: flipping burgers may just be harder than you think...

P.S. Some achievements were also added. To wit: Pressure Cooker, Mess Mcmanager, Have A Nice Day and Starry Eyed.

Holy Sacrifice Changes, posted on Wed Nov 30 10:53:36 2011
Posted by: Pit
Category: Guilds

Following complaints from the gods about the amount of blood cluttering their temples, the ritual Holy Sacrifice has received some changes:

* the time-limit on the ritual has been removed

* you can now do all your usual commands while bleeding

* as you gain gp from the ritual, you build up an energy debt; this debt grows less over time, especially when you are on full gp

The website has seen some internal changes. Most users should not

notice much of this, but we hope it has increased accessibility.

If the website behaves strangely for you, try to close your browser

and/or clear your cache. If it still behaves strangely, please

bugreport the issue!

P.S. We are aware of the "seemingly logged in as a different user"

bug, and are still looking for the cause. If you can find a

reproducable way to trigger this bug, we would like to know about it!

A craftsman has now taken up residence in Pumpkin Town. Sadly, he finds himself unable to pass on his knowledge as he lacks a proper workshop, though if asked politely he may explain a thing or two about the crafts system on the Discworld.

Following the recent rollback, many playershops have lost their

waiting list. Don't worry, your items are not truly lost!

We are currently working on a solution to recover these lists with

minimal pain. Feel free to ask a liaison whether your shop can be

fixed, although it may take a day or two before we can (easily) do

Playerkillers who wish to recover items which were stolen from them

from another playerkiller's corpse can now use the "reclaim" command

to do so. Reclaiming an item does not count as theft.
