      Teleportation, scanning, and shooting.

      Monsters were able to use ranged attacks through walls and at any distance after they teleported. This has been fixed. As a side effect, you will lose all of your scanned targets when you teleport.

      Searching for hidden monsters

      Hidden monsters can now be searched for and found. Your success depends on your authority, and the skill and agility of the hidden monster. Having the hide skill will help you a little to search for hidden monsters (as you know what the good hiding places are).

        {eyes}

        Sphinxes got their eyes. If you are a sphinx, and have {eyes} eyes, send an assist, and we will give you eyes of your choosing. This offer does not apply to any sphinxes that already have non {eyes} eyes.

          Lair upkeep costs:

          Clans must now pay upkeep costs for their lair. These upkeep costs must be paid each day, or the lair will begin to fall into disrepair, and crumble into dust. Each room in a clan's lair adds to the resource cost of the lair. Dens do not have costs, and wanderers do not need to pay for their upkeep.

          You can check the cost of your clan's upkeep by going to a market and typing "resources". This will give you complete information. The entire cost must be met, or all rooms will begin to crumble. Costs are paid each night around midnight CST.

          Lairs which are less than 2 weeks old do not have to pay upkeep costs. Grendel encourages new clan growth, and will pay your costs from his massive hoard.

          On a side note, all those Abandoned lairs out there will now begin to crumble and eventually dissapear, freeing up new real estate.


          Edit: Personal hoards do not add to the clan hoard for purposes of paying resources. Any resources in personal hoards will not be used to pay upkeep.

            Additional information on lair decay:

            When the lair upkeep cost is not met in a day, each room decays by a small amount. If the lair upkeep cost is met for a day, no rooms decay at all. It will take at least 100 days for the first room to fully decay in this way. Damaged rooms can be repaired as normal.

            Abandoned lairs can be kept from crumbling! They pay upkeep like normal, so if you place resources in the hoard of an abandoned lair, you can prevent it from decaying.

              New command:

              shrug

              Monsters who find themselves surrounded by more combatants than their size should allow can now shrug off the extra combatants. No success roll is required, but the combatants you shrug off are randomly selected.

                Racial Special Abilities


                Races with special abilities (troll, vampire, spirit, etc) may now purchase those special abilities for half price always, even if their choice of role would normally prevent them.

                  Dens:

                  Wandering Monsters now receive a message when a monster, ugly, or human (or whatever) enters their den. This will only trigger once a minute, to prevent spamming of WMs.

                    Mentor favor gain

                    Mentor favor gain has been reduced. Mentors also no longer gain passive gain from minions who are less than level 2.

                    Stunning

                    Maximum stun duration reduced. Knowledge of the koncentrate ability reduces chance of being stunned. Energy now protects more against stun. If stunned while flying, characters now fall.

                      Change to discharge:

                      Clan leaders may now discharge any member of the clan, even if that member is not their direct minion.

                        New Command:

                        Abandon <clan> A clan leader may abandon his or her clan. This makes the leader leave the clan. The leader's minion with the maximum amount of minions becomes the new leader. All of the old leader's minions become minions of the new leader, or one of the new leader's minions. If there is no space for the old leader's minions in the clan, they become clanless and lose their master.

                            Abandoning Lairs

                            abandon <lair>

                            Clan leaders may now abandon the clan's lair. Abandoning the lair removes it from your clan, allowing you to found a new one. It also removes all zone of control from the original lair. Only clan leaders can abandon the lair. All clan member respawn spots are set to the shrine. Traps in abandoned lairs will fire on you the moment you abandon them, be careful!

                              Multiple Accounts and the Master/Minion relationship:

                              Several changes have been made to prevent the use of multiple unpaid
                              accounts to gain the benefits of master/minion relationships.

                              A player with multiple accounts may not have the monster from one of those
                              accounts be the minion of a monster from another one of those accounts.

                              Also, monsters from alternate, multiple accounts may not have the same
                              master.

                              For all unpaid accounts, we have gone through and retroactively enforced
                              these new rules. Paid accounts are grandfathered in, and may continue in
                              any of the above master/minion relationships.

                              What this means:

                              If you have two accounts, one of them cannot be the master of the other.
                              If you are a master, you can't have two minions who are alternate unpaid
                              accounts of each other.
                              If you have multiple unpaid accounts, they can't have the same master.

                                Carapace

                                Carapace should be fixed now. If you experience any problems, please let us know.

                                Shrine Safe Zone

                                Players may no longer teleport enemies or use Stop Em while inside the shrine safe zone. You can still teleport yourself and anyone following you.

                                Teleporters

                                No more anti-spam warnings while using teleporters. You can now teleport to the same location more than three times.
