Certain weapons were too slow because of a miscalculation in combat code. You may find that weapons that were unusably slow before are now viable.

Be warned that certain NPCs may be using such weapons too, so you may want to be careful in your usual haunts.

Hi. A few little changes for those of you who happen to play with the underwear and the stabbings.

* The racks in Capture the Flag have been completely reworked. You are no longer limited in the number of weapon racks that you may take. On the other hand, most non-weapon items are now in the utility racks, which are limited. Visit the arena and list and browse to see what went where.

Some NPCs will now kick and punch. It was an oversight that has now been fixed, thanks Turvity!

In addition, counts toward warrior special achievements will now only be awarded when the creature dies. Some other achievements may be changed in the future as well.

A few issues with goldsmithing have been fixed:

In some cases this means that overall value may be reduced, but in others it may have increased.
