Re: ** Notices Posted by the Serian Peacekeepers **
————————————
Citizens of Seria:

Reports indicate that evidence of increasing necromantic power have been seen around the fallen city of Frelugnya to the east. Merchants traveling the Eastern Road report sightings of undead humanoids and otherworldly screeches and howls. Please exercise extreme caution if you travel that way.

* Centered at the bottom of the notice is a seated, three-headed hound within a ring of eight-pointed gold stars wearing a laurel on its middle head. *

OOC: Frelugnya has been updated into a medium/hard area. All previously aggressive creatures remain aggressive in their nooks and crannies, and the witches have become a bit more powerful. All the items have been upgraded to be appropriate for standard level 50 characters, and all the masking items have had their prices dropped! Please report any errors you find in this area. For the next 2 weeks, any deaths here will be restored if I’m around to facilitate bug testing.

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.
