A bug in the baby kraken pet has been fixed, and so interactions between these pets and other wearable pets will now work more consistently. Specifically, wearable pets are intended to attack each other when you wear more than one of them. Before the bug was fixed, you could stop this from happening by wearing the other pet first and the baby kraken second. This inconsistency has been removed, and so the attack will now happen regardless of the order you wear them in.

* A small bug has been fixed in the SS Unsinkable's dragons, which will affect people with very low skills. There was meant to be a skillcheck to see whether you could see any information at all about a dragon's status, but the bug meant that this skillcheck was always succeeding. Wranglers without the skill to pass this check will no longer be able to see the abovementioned information.

* Relatedly, a new command - "check <dragon> [status]" has been added to the dragons to let wranglers see th...

I have updated how you can refer to scrolls by the spell they hold. You no longer have to fully specify the spell name and may just use parts of the name.

This fixes a bug that made it impossible to refer to a Cherry Blossoms in Bloom scroll (or A Cup of Tea and Sake scroll if you had options input andascomma=on).

Existing scrolls will only be updated when they next load, so if you have any issues with a scroll you can su with it in your inventory to fix it.

Labels can no longer be stuck to people who are ignoring you.

On a similar note, wands that don't do damage (eg. garlic breath, icing sugar, paintball) can no longer be zapped at people who are ignoring you.

A new restaurant has opened on Fast Street. Its proprietor and her wife are keen to share the joys of chaat - a category of Bharatri snack food that combines crunch, tang, sweetness and saltiness - with the residents of Ankh-Morpork, so make sure to take your friends and a good appetite along with you!

Last month's craft-themed Bugfix Weekend was so much fun that we did it again! Here are the results.

* The Agatean engraving book now has patterns for water buffalo and feathered crane designs.

* Quilting and embroidery needles can now be threaded directly fr...

* Priests' newbie chests would previously only allow their contents to be removed by players of under 18 hours in age (as well as High Priests and their ministers).
