From Liareth (I love this one...)

The monsters of Arelith are sick and tired of being killed by smelly adventurers. They have formed a union and elected lieutenants from the best and brightest of their ranks. Players will encounter these lieutenants in the field and should prepare for the worst.

- Occasionally, monsters in the world will spawn as a named, unique mob. These mobs have increased strength that scales with their CR.
- Mobs are unique because of their combat prowess - for example, an animal who accidentally ate a potion of strength or a bandit lieutenant who claimed her position through the power granted by a magical ring she found. Kill the powerful mob? Claim their powerful loot.
- As paragons of their kind, unique mobs may often be found cloaked in powerful magic. Fights that were once trivial may become challenging; always be on your guard!

Andunor Cage Fight Update:

The Beast (Final Fight) won't Perma Kill a character if they are defeated by it.
Winning the Fight has been changed to the following:
250k Gold reward
Belt of Andunor (Runic and chance to randomly generate some stats that are reasonable)
This belt will allow you to disguise with it and won't make your character stand out in any way; its essentially a normal belt but runic and given some random starter props.

This means the old belt is no longer given as a reward and the Bonus Feats are removed as well from the reward. Characters that have already defeated the Beast will be unaffected by this.

First update from new developer Awan:

* The level/progress cut off for writs done with higher/lowered leveled party members has been increased from 3 to 5.


From Liareth:

* Unique monster Anuses will no longer be exposed. (The name 'Anus' removed from NWN's automated name generator)
* Unique monsters were sometimes spawning without the golden name to accompany; this should be fixed.
* Firbolgs now correctly receive the Track feat.

While elsewhere:

New Greater award added to allow Gnolls, Duergar, and Goblins to attain pirate tattoos and start off in Sencliff, this rewards requires an approved APPLICATION to the made to the DM team prior to taking the award.

And from myself:

- Made a few changes to some existing fixtures
- Clearly labelled our various horse breeds (Pack, Riding, Warhorse, Riding, Wild & Destrier) and adjusted their statistics (When NOT mounted) accordingly.
- Added in the complete Shyr Farmstead in preparation for the end of the auction at Mayfield's Brokerage

Courtesy of Batrachophrenoboocosmomachia - coming very soon

- "The Locker," formerly the dungeon floor of the Sencliff Estate (and ONLY the dungeon floor), is now available to all who have taken the Ink. Its amenities expanded, the Locker is the first sign of ever-increasing organization among the Freeport Sailors (for remember, there are no pirates at Port Sencliff).
- Cosmetic updates to the Sencliff Docks (it's about time someone took care of the masonry before the whole place came down).
This too shall pass.

(I now have a DM Discord (I hope) It's DM GrumpyCat#7185 but please keep in mind I'm very busy IRL so I can't promise how quick I'll get back to you.)

Small (Literally and figuratively) fix:
-Wild Dwarves made before the August 5th 2019 update will now have their height appropriately altered to what they should be on first login.

Slaves may now own vault storage.

Because of the dearth of slave quarters, and the not-dearth of slaves, we are looking into more quarters, which will come in due time. In the meantime, please remember slaves may only own slave quarters. If you're questioning if one you want is or not, please ask!
What is woven will be.

Pirate Recognition
--------------------------

- Removed rogue levels from qualifying PCs to detect pirates.
- Increased Lore skill to detect ascending pirate ranks from
50 40 30 25 20 15 10
to
80 70 60 50 40 30 20

This should allow new pirates to be largely anonymous, only becoming recognisable alongside their increasing notoriety. The update was due partly due to the insight on the issue provided in a recent forum thread, and also because since the lore change the skill has become increasingly common.

Please see our News Feed for expanded details of the updates listed below.

New Class - Swashbuckler
-------------------------------------

(Courtesy of Garrbear, Aniel, BHR55 & Silvard)

- This is being made available SOLELY on PGCC during testing & Feedback

(I'm truly excited about this one - it's not every day we get a whole new base class..)

267 New Character Heads
--------------------------------------

(Courtesy of Anatida and Aellowyn)

- An astonishly large number of new heads, that promise to do wonders for character diversity on Arelith.

- Please not these are NOT all available in larger phenotype versions

- At the moment these are ONLY available to new characters - DO NOT ask DMs for a head change - we shall introduce an automated for players to do this on existing characters in the coming days.

Outcast Changes
-------------------------

(Courtesy of Bat Country - on my instruction regarding outcast reward lock)

The Outcast start now require a Normal award. At this time, only non-Good Humans can be Outcasts at character creation. Characters can still become Outcasts as a result of in-game RP through DM application. (PM on the Forums to "Active DMs")

The impact of this change will be observed over time, and if necessary we will adjust the Award level required. We are also looking into re-enabling Half-Orc Outcasts with their own starting setup, as well as other starting races. Thank you for your patience and constructive feedback.

Hub Adjustments:
---------------------------

- General message board added to the Hub. Wanted Board moved to the West Wheel.

Arelith PGCC
-------------------

(Courtesy of DM Sypre)

- All missing weapons have been added to bring the store up to date. Recipes have not been included, and will be considered later on.

Swashbuckler Balance Patch 1:

Thank you everyone for your feedback and help with testing. We've made some minor adjustments.
-Removed quarterstaff as a usable weapon for swash feats

-Added evasion at level 16
-Gave swash 1 turn blinding speed reduction per 12 levels. Stacks with rogues

From the next reset:
Swashbuckler Balance Patch 2:
Thank you everyone for your continued feedback and patience. We think swashbuckler is now in a good place and is ready for launch on the main server, although we will continue to monitor and make adjustments as necessary.
-DCs changed from 1/2 Dex mod + 1/2 swash level + Social Skill / 5
to Int Mod + 1/2 swash level + Social Skill / 5
-Added defensive roll, improved evasion, and epic dodge to the epic bonus feat list.
Note: You must still meet the prerequisites to select epic dodge.

We hope you enjoy the first in our series of planned class additions.

Soulhaven Monastery
-------------------------------

After months of development, the new Soulhaven has gone live. Details of this can be found on our News Feed

New Spell - Anti-Magic Field
----------------------------------------

When cast this spell creates a 10' radius around the user where no magic can be cast, and all summons become immobile. A major game changer for those seeking an advantage against spellcasters, this spell appears in no spellbooks, but can be found on rare items in the game world, or used by dangerous foes, such as the infamous 'Weave Eater'

Darkness Spell Changes
------------------------------------

The darkness spell will no longer have any effect on undead spawns, while elsewhere there is a small increase in individual creatures able to penetrate it.

Swashbuckler
--------------------

Fixed a bug where light flail, light pick, and sai were not counting as swashbuckler weapons.


New and Adjusted Creatures
------------------------------------------

In addition to the Weave-eater change mentioned above, a number of new undead creatures have been added, while many others have had their appearance upgraded to new, more detailed models.

Due to problems with new heads not displaying on certain character, reported after they use the 'toggle hood' command, I have elected, for the time being, to disable that command.

This is already live on C&P, and will be on the others following the reset later tonight.

IF you are on either of these servers please untoggle your hood, or you risk being welded to the hood after a reset. If, as a result of this, any player finds they cannot remove a hood, please ping to the DM channel for a head change.

While the toggle hood function was great, the range of new heads is better. Symphony is going to look at trying to fix this from the Beamdog end, and if we can determine how to overcome it then the function will be restored.

Here is the thread where the bug was reported, please continue to provide feedback there if you continue seeing missing heads after this change.
