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.

Gods Are Open For Business In Ephebe, posted on Fri Aug 30 08:00:23 2013

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...

Climbing With Care, posted on Fri Aug 23 09:17:30 2013

The 'climb' command has been tweaked so that 'climb assess' will now give more useful and accurate feedback. That is, the difficulty levels reported now correspond to roughly how difficult the climb will be.

The difficulty of any climbing anywhere has not been changed. Just the judgement of that difficulty one gets using 'climb assess'.

Debugging Divine Hand, posted on Wed Aug 21 21:07:42 2013

A bug has been fixed in the ritual divine hand, which was making the ritual more difficult than it was set to be.

However, the bug was also making the ritual ignore how many passengers you were taking along, and the squashing of the bug thus means that the ritual will now be more difficult the more passengers you take, as originally intended.

Clerical Error In Noble Families, posted on Wed Aug 14 20:22:20 2013

The leaders of the noble families in Bes Pelargic have discovered that their clerics have been making some systematical errors for years.

In particular, they learned that they have given out ranks to their loyal supporters when these were not yet truly earned.

Naturally, the clerics have been executed and the errors corrected. Some of their followers may see consequently a minor regression in rank within the family.

(Translation: due to a bugfix, it is possible that some players' titles in the ...

Shop Changes, posted on Mon Jul 29 22:04:11 2013
Posted by: Borealis
Category: General
There have been some minor changes to player shops, specifically relating to the auction process:

1) While a shop is on auction, the previous shop owner will be allowed in the shop.

2) While the shop is on auction, all persons on the allow list will be able to adjust prices and buy goods from the shop. This is to enable the previous owners to remove their unsold stock should they wish to do so.

3) At the end of the auction, the old allow and helper lists will be completely reset.

Hopefully this...

Following on from the tweaks to the difficulty, mindspace, and GP cost of the Witches' lard spell (Granny Lipintense's Layer of Lard), some extra functionality has now been added.

1) The spell will now dry you off as well as keep you dry, in most situations.

2) The line in your description will indicate how much lard you have left - the thicker the layer of lard, the longer you have until it runs out.

3) The maximum thickness (and therefore duration) is capped. Re-casting once yo...
