The quest listings page on the website has been updated to allow you to split the listings into completed and uncompleted quests.

Relatedly, the quest command in the MUD, when invoked as "quest list all" or "quest list <area>" now defaults to dividing the list into completed and uncompleted. If you want the old behaviour, you can get it by using the syntax "quest list interleaved all" or "quest list interleaved <area>".

Pet brushes are now more effective at getting muck out of the fur of the pets sold in Sto Lat. If you find a type of muck that can't be brushed out, and you think it should be, please make a bugrep with a log showing what the pet looks like with its muck on.

Keys and keyrings have been made lighter. This should not affect the difficulty of stealing them, but it will make it slightly harder to perform remember place on them.

Several sailing-related bugs have been fixed:

Hitting a forward current at the end of a voyage will no longer make the SS Unsinkable leap magically over the port and get stuck on land. If the current would have taken you into port, your voyage will now be correctly completed.

The difficulty of tying crates down was previously very random. It now scales with the number of crates you're trying to tie, though the overall range of difficulty remains the same. This means that people with lower sk...

The very long sausage staff has had a bit of a revamp. It now takes damage in combat, in order to bring it in line with the MUD's weapon standards - but to balance this, it can now be fixed by dipping it into an appropriate liquid.

(Oh, and thanks to Feanor, it is also now 122% more delicious.)
