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...

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.

Pet brushes are now more effective at getting muck out of the fur of the pets sold in Sto Lat. If you find a type of muck that can't be brushed out, and you think it should be, please make a bugrep with a log showing what the pet looks like with its muck on.

Keys and keyrings have been made lighter. This should not affect the difficulty of stealing them, but it will make it slightly harder to perform remember place on them.

Happy pre-Hogswatch, everyone! At some point during the next few days, the Rotational Association of Sto Lat will put up their Hogswatch tree and open up their shop, and it will officially be Hogswatchtide. The Chairman had this to say:

One-third of knights on the roads will now have a horse, wearing some interesting new gear.
