The witch fade command is supposed to insert the witch in their chosen position in the room's long description. A bug was causing this not to happen, and now it has been fixed!

N.B. It may take some time for this change to filter through so you won't start showing up in long descriptions immediately.

Being at the turn of the year, our most recent Bugfix Weekend focused on a guild concerned heavily with endings - assassins! Here's what we did.

Anticipating an influx of Holiday weddings the Guild of Fools and Joculators have revamped their Chapel of Fun. Brother Whopply has been subjected to all the puns from the talker during the last couple of months whilst being beaten with an assortment of bladders and has agreed to perform marriages if only he doesn't have to listen to any more puns.

Furniture has been rearranged, ancient artifacts have been restored and they've even put fresh hay down on the floor. Head on over (with or witho...

Dear thieves,

A couple of achievements have been adjusted to make them be more about persistent acts of thievery and less about staying logged in for unhealthy amounts of time. Specifically, the requirement for reaching the top of the leaderboard a number of times has been removed from Thief Extraordinaire and Mazda's Hero. Instead, they now require you to pay A$96000 and A$256000 towards your quota.

If you have already reached one or both of these totals but "ach details <achievement>" s...
