My schedule is changing for the month of July, so I would like to announce something that I will call “Happy Hour Wednesdays.” What this means is that if you die on Wednesdays, you will get a free resurrection without stat loss or weakness.  This will also be done via the life skill, which will bump your total PC raises and make you eligible for the safe raise system later on.  You will still be responsible for recovering your HP/mana/move and your equipment.

As a reminder, any equipment dropped in the game and not yet retrieved can always be picked up prior to game reboots. If you’re concerned that I don’t know about your items, send me a mudmail or email to keep an eye on it.

Hope to see you all gathering more parties! This is also great for helping me to test new areas for bugs.

Whispers fly through the city, carried on the breaths of idle housewives. They speak of a fire in the Divine City, one that razed an entire garden. Some say it was set intentionally, and others argue that it was by pure chance. The silliest ones speak of some avian secret society, a group of plant fanciers. These whispers spread through the city, warping and twisting with each telling.

OOC: The Grand Gardens is a small area that has been added to the game. This area is flagged as [S/EN], meaning there is a safe part and there is a more difficult endgame part. Tread with caution.

I pushed in a new update with a bug fixes and a change to mortality.  The main update is that from now on, any deaths when under level 10 will automatically restore the character and teleport both the character and the body to the Academy Temple to be healed. There will no longer be invulnerability or infravision added. I have updated HELP MORTALITY to reflect this.

I’ve also added a few small tweaks lately, which you may read about on our forum thread. Many of these are small issues with new spells such as transmogrify or possession, or old issues such as pets not saving properly (there was no reason this was needed in the past). Most valuable to some of you is that memorizing spells no longer fails once you reach above 74%.

See this for a full list of updates.

I’ve made a few small updates since I have time this month. They are as follows:

1) Archiving has been re-enabled. The length of time before your character archives is 90 days. I’ve reset everyone’s last logged-in date to today. I’ll also be willing to restore any character that archives as long as it was your most recent character and it doesn’t break the game. The reason archiving is back is because as more updates get added in, the more likely an old character will be out of date when they come back.

2) Create scroll has been removed from all mages. You should have gotten 2 practices back when you logged in. The scrolls can now be purchased from the scrollery in Seria. These scrolls can be used for enchantment (yay no waiting!) .

3) I fixed a bunch of issues with mana in campfire, track, and inspect.

4) Shamans have gained baleful gaze and ancestral blessing. I’ll be working on shamans a bit this month to give them their own flavor other than a cross between necromancer and druid.

5) All the class skill lists on the website have been updated. If you see an error, please let me know!
