The following is the record of public game progress for January 9th, 2009 through January 20th, 2009. As it was cataloged before progress reports were standardized, it is organized differently from the current format.

  • Surrender no longer works in OOC areas, and properly heals a character who is dead or KOed at the time of surrendering.
  • Character names are now selected after setting gender and species in chargen.
  • Multiple changes to the back-end message/description code, primarily for efficiency and fixing some display oddities.
  • Light levels tweaked slightly; there is now a visible level difference if it is too dark or too bright for a character to craft, read, etc. in a room.
  • "Up" and "down" exits work properly again without requiring swimming or flight.
  • Climbing down a climbable object no longer automatically causes falling damage.
  • Menhit no longer have a "tail" limb; they still possess tails thematically, but not in a way that risks being constantly broken or severed.
  • Tons and tons of new, updated, or otherwise altered helpfiles, plus a few outdated ones removed.
  • Real names are no longer required to make accounts.
  • Further clarification given at optional e-mail prompt.
  • Passwords for new accounts are now chosen at creation instead of generated and altered with the "passwd" command.
  • Various contact details updated during account creation and for the prompt received after entering an incorrect password too many times.
  • More small tweaks to chargen, particularly involving starting equipment and written languages.
  • All new tinderboxes are now a one-item lighter object. No more having to drop things to light them!
  • Continued maintenance of the bug, typo, balance, and idea boards.
