The candies and lollipops sold at Saccha Rose's shop on Long Hogmeat now turn your lips interesting colours.

The messages shown to casters when casting Wurphle's Midnight Snack are now more varied. No functional changes have been made - this is purely cosmetic.

The sno-balls sold in Genua can now be licked as well as eaten, and you don't even have to take them out of the cones to do so. They also now give more interesting messages.

After the popularity of the hedgehog, Mrs Corduroy of An...

Two previously non-crackable safes in Genua are now crackable. Please note that the NPCs in these rooms are not just there for decoration.

Relatedly, the guards in Genua harbour who carry iron chains are now a bit more aware of the most effective way to use them. If you had been relying on their previous (buggy) behaviour, you may now find them harder to kill.

Divine Tolerance Thresholds Increased, posted on Tue Jan 11 15:04:50 2022

After a meeting on Cori Celesti, Gapp, Sandelfon, Fish and Hat have decided to be a bit more tolerant of their followers' shifts in alignment.

Hence, priests of these gods should now find it a bit easier to stay in your gods' good graces!

The score align command now reflects the new status quo more accurately.

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>".

Cravats Etc., posted on Sun Jan 9 11:23:14 2022

* You can now both tie all cravats in fashionable (or unfashionable) styles, and stick cravat pins in them.

* Iconographer's vests are now available from the iconography shop on the Ridings, Ankh-Morpork, for all your iconography needs. Or at least the ones that will fit in pockets.

* You can now stare at a lava lamp and feel it reflected in your soul.

A long-standing bug in the Genua wedding dress shop has been fixed; the wait time for custom dresses here is now in line with other Genuan custom wedding items.

The Genua custom wedding vendors have got together and synchronised their colour choices, as well as adding a few new pastels.

Jaqu Alufe in Genua and Huan Gong in Bes Pelargic now offer palladium as an option for their custom-made rings.

Soo-tsoo-sa in the Djelibeybi harbour now stocks a small selection of needles and threads f...

A couple of new pottery items have been added to the Sto Lat and Cockbill Street pottery wheels.

Cade l'Insignateur in Genua now offers shield badges in addition to his other shapes.

Jaqu Alufe, also in Genua, has persuaded his sapient pearwood rings to accept engraving.

I have updated how spell casting works with respect to consumable components.

The checks for consumable components now happen up front - before the scroll is emptied (where applicable), GP is spent or components that can be used are consumed.

When specifying which components to use with the using syntax, components that cannot be consumed will generate an error message now.

When not specifying which components to use with the using syntax, components that cannot be consumed (because they are k...

You can now engrave on quite a few more materials than you used to be able to.

Tool Holsters, posted on Fri Dec 10 22:50:45 2021
Posted by: Guildenstern
Category: General
The oiled leather thigh holsters, which would previously hold any tool, have been revamped because many tools are unrealistically large. They now look like this:

"It could sheathe a jewellers tool, drawknife, brush, file, graving tool, screwdriver or gemcutting tool."

If you previously had other things in them, and they're still there, that's normal - you just won't be able to replace them there after removing them.
