After some vigorous teacher training the Djelian Language School should be operating in a much slicker fashion.

In particular, the teachers now offer to teach the spoken and written parts of a language separately.

Also, a new teacher from Al Khali has taken up residence, and is happy to teach Klatchian to Djelian students.

With the renewed opening of the gates of Ephebe, traders in valuable goods have started regularly undertaking the journey between Ephebe and Ankh-Morpork. The trip, however, is hazardous, and due to the value of their caravan, these traders will usually require the help of a combat-competent escort.

Interested parties are encouraged to wander over to the Onion Gate in Ankh-Morpork, or Tyrant's Gate in Ephebe, and enquire for more details (a room help file is also provided).

The River Djel is now inhabited with a greater variety of life - from crocodiles to minnows.

You might also discover that hippopotami tend to spend the day in water, and go foraging in smaller numbers on dry land in the water pastures at night.

Be careful if you do go exploring, as bull hippopotami tend to be aggressive.

After months of philosophical discussion (aided by some stormy weather) the government of Ephebe has decided that the gods do, in fact, exist, and have lifted the ban on offerings to the gods.

Several altars have now been installed in the Ephebian streets and temples, all of which are happy to accept the donations and offerings of both tourists and locals.

The gods have been known to reward gifts that they approve of quite generously.

The Discworld pantheon is open-minded, and being a worshippe...

Following information being received that Barbarians had been targetting a shopkeeper, Ulive, for her uniquely exciting footwear, the Tyrant has ordered her to tone down her dress.

As a consequence of this, another trader has spotted a gap in the market, and has taken up residence in the Dockside market, ready to fulfil your footwear-related desires.

Dear all,

Following the re-opening of Ephebe, the priests of the temple of Pishe in Djelibeybi have decided that enough was enough.

Trying to keep the fountains and rain clouds moist was proving a drain on their resources, and so they have decided to close down and relocate to new premises in Ephebe.

Hello everyone,

It is now Thursday, and I am pleased to announce that Ephebe is now live, accessible, and ready to be explored.

This is in no way everything that Ephebe will have to offer: there will be several further releases of quests, achievements, buildings and other nifty features over the coming months.

In no particular order, I would like to thank everyone who has helped bring Ephebe into existence:

Archoplytes, Ishamael, Chilali, Loutre, Touchstone, Dasquian, Peta, Jewels, Epic, Tiqu...
