We have a collection of fixes and minor improvements for you!

* You can now use eg. 'pour 1/5 of ink well onto sponge' when staining. Using less or more than the amount the sponge needs will waste some. Using 'pour ink well on sponge' will still automatically take the correct amount (1/5 of the capacity of a standard ink well). The bug whereby using 'onto' would occasionally not colour the sponge has been fixed.

* Player-made staves are now slightly lighter than they were, which is to say they a...

Some parks in Ankh-Morpork were not spawning NPCs properly, affecting some sausage missions.

This has been fixed.

The ice axe has been rebalanced to bring it in line with other weapons. Specifically: it no longer boosts your rope-climbing or tree-climbing bonuses, the rock-climbing boost is now capped, it no longer acts as a staff, it is heavier than before, and it deals less damage than before. If you had one stored in a star sapphire ring via Crondor's Marvellous Sequestration, you will be able to retrieve it but you will not be able to store it again.

As pre-announced on the Frog board a week ago, th...

You should now be able to use a needle and thread to repair things made of more materials than you previously could. Specifically, the nice fabrics that Gerard de Wendelle uses should now be mendable, as should things made of fluff and things that appraise as "fabric". If you come across something that you can't mend, but you think you should be able to, please make a bug report on the needle saying what you were trying to mend, and where you got it from!

The package delivery jobs available in Genua harbour now have a wider and hopefully less frustrating range of possible targets. (In particular, frequently-killed casino employees and wandering unscryable preachers are absolutely no longer allowed on the list.) The XP and money rewards have also been slightly increased, and the lockout time before you can take on another job has been decreased.

Now that spring has well and truly sprung, your lovely creators have been hard at work weeding the garden that is the MUD codebase. The list of changes below might look small, but for each change you see here, there have been a multitude of other quiet little adjustments and fixes in response to various idea and bug reports. The changes you are likely to notice are as follows:

- A variety of climbable trees have had oddities fixed, such as properly responding to 'climb assess', and giving a ...

Borst Besensteel in Copperhead now sells broom stencils in his shop. These can be used in conjunction with a tin of paint and a small stencilling sponge[1] to apply a stencilled design to a broomstick.

Those wishing to apply a stencil to their broomstick will need a quite respectable degree of painting skill, and should be able to apply stencils to any kind of broomstick. Note that custom broomsticks can only be stencilled if they do not already feature a 'decoration' from Borst.

Important No...
