First rollup: * Bayyal has been significantly rewritten. See HELP BAYYAL for more information. * The goddess Ayaunj, patroness of the Merchant Federation has made herself known.

Re: Update 4 Jun 2019

Okay, so, notes. Let's start with some of the area work here. This update started, in a lot of ways, with druid, which meant building-wise, it started with Gogoth. Gogoth was of course one of the absolute oldest areas in the game, some truly vintage Iandir work, and it had rarely been touched since....

Re: Update 27 Sep 2018

Meanwhile, I'd like to explicitly call out the normalization of the 'big' ranking mobs-- the High Kkhilgh had way too few hit points (its healing prog was, I suppose, a counterbalance to that, but was mostly a pain in the butt), the ancient srorsian was originally introduced to be a major ranking mo...

Re: Update 6 Jun 2018

The tips channel is something I'm particularly excited about-- it gives us an opportunity to feed you, the players, little reminders about things that are easily forgotten mechanically and commands-wise (and certainly I've heard a lot of older players, even, just learning now about various functiona...

Re: Update 6 May 2018

We have some other very exciting changes in this update, beyond the class design aspects. Let's start with smoking. Several years ago, when the sewers were remade into their mostly-current form, some staff member added a box of cigars, with a neat little prog on them that let you get better at smoki...

Re: Help with new Ranger changes

Re: Update 29 Jan 2018

Okay, here's the compilation of the last set of fixes-- we've now frozen this release until the next major version. That's not to say don't report bugs lol, but they're gonna be held until the next revision. * Minor adjustments to the output of the settings command. * The sharp flag on weapons has b...

Re: Update 29 Jan 2018

Yeah, it was hard to be sure how many people actually used the feature too is the thing-- we do ask people keep the names reasonable because of typing issues so if that comes up we might need to talk to people. Unfortunately it's an either/or situation, we can't have only part of the functionality f...
