The silly season is upon us, the powers all hope you have the festive season
that you deserve. Thalia suggested we have a competition to run over the
season, but Jaakan is currently working like a trojan (ie. sitting around and
doing nothing, staring at a wooden horse) to try and get the fabled reboot up
and running as soon as he can. There will be no further new content added
until this is done. Further details about the precise nature of the update
will follow, but Jaakan hopes to be done over the festive holidays. Our
competition will run after this, we are open to suggestions as to prizes...
our current ideas are: a special achievement, a quest flag for a quest that
you can't/don't want to finish, a special weapon, a larger allowance of
fashioned objects. Fun!

A squashed bug here, another squashed bug there. I really don't like bugs.
Unfortunately one of these was the log file which bugs, typos and ideas was
not working properly. Therefore anything you've reported since Sunday
morning 00:00 game time was not stored in the log. If you can remember
them, please relog them. If you aren't sure if it was this week or last
week, relog anyway and we can sort through them.

This issue has been corrected and shouldn't happen again.

Thanks,
Athagos.

The mythical upgrade is due to arrive over this weekend, and there may be
a few hours of downtime between saturday evening and sunday morning UK
time. We will try to keep it to a minimum. Sorry for any inconvenience
caused, but the pain will be worth it! Please note that any extra
equipment collected between now and the update will be lost.
