Less Durable Tinfoil., posted on Fri Mar 5 17:27:49 2021

The anti scry effect of the wizard spell Kipperwald's Perlustration Prevention now has a dramatically reduced duration.

This means that instead of, for example, your KPP lasting for a twelve hours, it might last for 2.5 hours instead.[0]

[0] These numbers have been picked out of thin air purely for explanatory purposes.

Meditate, posted on Thu Feb 25 14:07:49 2021

Meditation is now available as a stand alone command away from high altars. Although meditating to remove your divine protection is now available for use anywhere, other techniques still require the use of a high altar.

Anyone can learn the command from a temple instructor, even atheists or witches and wizards. In order for such individuals to learn the command, they will need to find an instructor that they can reach without worshipping a deity - probably either the Pishe instructor in the tem...

Mixing And Matching Of Faith And Magical Shields., posted on Tue Feb 9 13:57:54 2021

As people are asking me this a lot, I thought I'd blog to save people the trouble :)

The recent changes to major shield that made it outer armour go hand in hand with some more changes that will be made shortly.

They haven't yet been made because I found some additional things that needed doing first.

You will soon no longer be able to combine major shield, minor shield, and holy aegis with magical impact shields (TPA and SFP) and bugshield.

Other combinations of faith and magic shields (includ...

Artefact Inquisition Fixed., posted on Sat Feb 6 12:50:59 2021

The ritual Artefact Inquisition appears to have been broken... possibly forever.

It should now properly show which deity bestowed a particular ritual on a rod.

Sto Plains Deities., posted on Sat Feb 6 12:49:51 2021

You will find that some of the more esoteric Sto Plains deities (largely evidenced on Sto lat priests) now have more interesting shield messages.

Major/minor Shield Tweaks., posted on Fri Jan 29 21:27:52 2021
Posted by: Aristophanes
Category: Guilds
So, there have been a couple of changes to faith shields. Most of these are cosmetic, one is functional.

The functional change is the major shield now counts as "outer" armour. This means it protects you before your clothes and other worn things and these will therefore get less damaged than before.

The most important of the cosmetic changes is that there is now a "high level" major shield message. Gapp's had one for a while (the "cloth of gold" message you may have seen) but now every other p...

Done Dung It., posted on Fri Jan 22 08:07:29 2021

Twisted vine rings (obtainable through the witch spell Gammer Shorga's Clever Creeper) have been given some fertiliser.

Their resultantly lengthier tendrils can now reach from underneath gloves and other hand coverings to form the shapes of keys they have been taught to remember.

The fertiliser also appears to have improved their memories.

Warded Items On Rituals/spell Decomposed Corpses, posted on Thu Jan 7 13:39:47 2021
Posted by: Aristophanes
Category: Guilds
Recent changes to fix a bug in the "get" command had the consequence that people using a corpse as part of the unquiet spirit and withering touch rituals, the feeding of creeping doom clouds, and the wizard spell Grisald's Reanimated Guardian, could get hit by all the wards on that corpse.

This should no longer be the case but with the downside that the warded items will disappear into non being.

More Good Cuppa., posted on Thu Aug 20 09:29:33 2020

A bug has been fixed that sometimes stopped people from successfully inhuming Wun Good Cuppa. Enjoy!

Saturday 18th Sektober Secundus, UC 2042

After a practical joke that lasted more than a year, the senior staff of the Fools' Guild have pulled down the set piece backgrounds blocking their new members from the majority of the guild.

This was widely regarded as "not all that funny" by the majority of outsiders, and "the strictest adherence to our tradition and respect to our institution" by the Cloistered Staff. One Fool on staff, who wishes to remain anonymous, is quo...
