Charming Bracelets, posted on Mon Sep 19 20:43:40 2016
Posted by: Pit
Category: General
Jewellery lovers may find their charm bracelets a little easier to store now: the bracelets count only as a single item towards item limits, regardless of any charms on them.

P.S. You may need to SU (with the bracelet in your inventory) for this to take effect.

Initial Weight Changes, posted on Wed Jul 20 22:31:16 2016

Some players may have noticed a sudden drop in their burden. This is because many low-weight items like rings and charms have had their weight decreased in the last two weeks. Correspondingly, papers have had their weight increased, and tearing books from papers now actually affects their weight.

Berraja on Okra Avenue (Genua) has celebrated the occasion by adding a few new charms to her stock.

P.S. Many items remain whose weight will likely need adjusting. If you have such an item, and its weig...

The harbourwalk and underdocks of Ephebe are known to be frequented by those who play fast and loose with the letter of the law. Recently, a pair of such individuals have reportedly gone into business - two women who have rejected the widely-held view that it is perfectly acceptable to be completely naked when swimming in the bay or walking through the streets after bathing.

These worshippers of the great God Aegadon have committed themselves to selling bespoke swimwear and a wide variety of b...

If you're in hiding, and you "look around", and someone in the room notices you, you will now be brought out of hiding. It *appears* that this was always the intent, it just wasn't happening.

Some NPCs now fight a wee bit more intelligently.

Those few NPCs that were unarmed and set to parry only should now parry unarmed. Specifically, this affects Shades trolls, Tsimo wrestlers and some Ephebe athletes. There may be others.

Some other NPCs will also parry unarmed now if they lose their weapons. A great number of NPCs are affected by this change.

Additionally, some NPCs are now slightly more careful in how they decide to attack. A great number of NPCS are also affected by this as well....

Bugfix Weekend has come and gone, and your friendly creator team have fixed many bugs and implemented several ideas from our helpful, reporting playerbase!

Players who use blocking as their primary defense might find themselves pleasantly surprised.

Players who fight NPCs with shields might find themselves unpleasantly surprised.

Posted by: Borealis
Category: General
Missing item receipts have been enhanced. You may now kiss missing item receipts located in vessels using a new "kiss receipt in <vessel>" syntax.

Receipts for liquids may only be kissed if they are in a vessel which is large enough for the liquid they will become and which contains no other items.

Some new messages have been added when kissing receipts, specifically relating to receipts for liquids and receipts in vessels.

A new help file for missing item receipts has been added. If you hav...

Canteens, Poison Rings And Similar Wearable Liquid Containers, posted on Mon Jul 27 02:07:08 2015
Posted by: Borealis
Category: General
Some vessels had a potentially abusable bug whereby an unlimited number of items could be stored in them.

Such vessels now have a limited capacity for non liquid items.

This will affect inventory regeneration at log in, especially if you happen to have such a container with a large quantity of non liquid items in it.
