Exits Command., posted on Sat Jan 31 23:11:52 2009

A new "exits" command has been created to display obvious exits without the need to look.

This should work in most rooms.

Following the discovery that the Gloomy Forest spiders really weren't pulling their weight in the poison department, we've poked and prodded them, and now they're fully venomous again. Time to stock up on anti-poison!

I put a Most Wanted Board in the Pseudopolis Yard Watch House.

The top criminals (active players only) are listed here, as well as anyone who's been banished by the City Council.

Changes To Rooftops., posted on Wed Jan 28 19:54:40 2009

Rooftops that use skillchecks were changed to use ot.acrobatics.vaulting and ot.acrobatics.balancing instead of rock climbing when jumping across roofs or balancing on slopes. Having some rock climbing may make the checks easier.

For members of the Conlegium Sicariorum doing the Run, this means they may need to advance a non-primary more than guild max (depending on stats). Some areas of the Run were made easier to account for this.

Changes For The Conlegium Sicariorum, posted on Wed Jan 28 19:46:28 2009

January 21:

Added "r2" as a code for restricted books in the library. This level only allows graduate assassins and foreign colleagues to access the specified books. Moved the other codes above it up by one level.

Wrote a handler to keep track of "active" members of each house. The handler is then used to see which houses need new members. Houses low on members are more likely to have newbies assigned to them. Also gave a chance for female characters to be added to one of the male houses, i...

Added a roof to the Ninja guild. There are a couple of ropes leading from the guild to it, and exits from the roof to the city streets.

Refreshing, Achievements And Teaching, posted on Wed Jan 28 18:36:19 2009

So, as is always the way, some Bad Eggs have attempted to spoil a nice thing for everyone. As is, I'm sure, open knowledge - if you refresh an old character, you'll get the achievement XP for age and login time again. This wasn't intentional behaviour (as in, it wasn't specifically designed to be like that), but I liked it and so didn't change it.

Alas, some people have been Taking Advantage of that, and so it's had to be changed a little. Now, you cannot spent achievement XP on learning fr...

Grandfather Game, posted on Wed Jan 28 13:08:50 2009

Grandfather Game is angry that his son is spreading the Heathen Rules of the Game, and has started to offer players of sufficient power a chance to play The Big Game.

He awaits your pleasure in Sessifet. The fee is large, but so too is the prize...

Greedier Pumpkins, posted on Mon Jan 26 18:11:08 2009

The pumpkin dummy in Pumpkin Town will now only give up to 3 levels in each fighting skill "for free" (normal tms, at a much slower rate, are still possible though).

On the upside, it will also give you these three levels if you have done the fighting guild task first!
