-SetStats and Wizards / Spellswords
===================================

We are aware of an issue with memorized spells when doing -setstats. At this time, if you are a Wizard or Spellsword, your request will be put on hold. If you have already had it done, I will work with those players to have their memorized spells returned (this will likely just be me giving scrolls).

A fix will be implemented soon. When it is, we will announce it and lift the hold off of Wizards / Spellswords.

Thank you!

UPDATE: This has been fixed for Wizards / Spellswords.

An update regarding a previous update:
========================================
In the following post:
viewtopic.php?p=232448#p232448

It was noted that Blackguard AND Assassin would get 1 Poison DC per 3 levels.
This is not the case in the code and is infact:
1 per 3 Assassin levels.
1 per 4 Blackguard levels.

The Wiki has been updated to reflect this.

Colossal Hammer (Masterly Damask):
- No longer needs eggs and a catalyst, no longer outputs blood

Eggs to Blood (Alchemy):
- No longer needs catalyst
- Both recipes are now:
- 20 Egg or Speckled Egg
- 1 Blood of a Magical Creature
- 1 Ingot (Iron)
- Output is the same
- This is the last change to this recipe, I promise

Thanks to the NWNX Community loading times have been decreased by at least an order of magnitude. This is an experimental change, and we will be monitoring server stability in the coming days to make adjustments if necessary.

Our sympathies to those who enjoyed gazing at the marvelous loading art from our talented contributors.

Minor portal update:

Note: only people with the hold names would see this updated. This should hopefully be less confusing.

Next reset:

Ships can now encounter Whales and other Sea Creatures as a random event, much like NPC Vessels and Landmarks. These creatures can be engaged from a Light or Heavy Ballista to attempt to grapple them.

Upon a successful grapple attempt the creature will become hostile and spawn next to the ship, attacking the hull. They can be defeated as any other regular enemy and doing so will result in resources and other trinkets.

Multiple Ship Weapons can be used to strengthen the grapples on the creature or it may break free and escape. To release a creature mid-fight interact with the Weapon to do so; if all grapples are released the creature will also escape.

Be warned, however, as some Sea Creatures will attack relentlessly even with broken or released grapples and the only means of escape in this situations is to defeat it.

Sea Creatures come in varying strength and difficulty and is subject to change as we go along. Much like other Ship content they scale based on where on the map you are.

Server Crashes & You
===============

The surface server has been experiencing a large number of crashes. We are attempting to perform RCA by seeing if we can crash it or another server with a similar process. This should hopefully isolate the cause or mark what may be theorized as causing it as coincidence. We apologize for the turbulence. Hopefully we can determine the root of the issues shortly.

Thanks,

From Twohand
============

Jotunhold Update

- All Firbolgs and Half-Giants now have access to the interior of Jotunhold. Only one wing remains in control of the Guildhouse.
- Five quarters previously tied to the Guildhouse now can't face eviction and are buy-able only by Firbolgs and Half-Giants.
- Two new quarters free for all races have been added to the Guildhouse wing, which still maintains control over the shop, the communal storage, and the portal chamber.
- The portal in the wilderness outside is now a two-way portal.

* Developer Commentary: Like the Horde Camp stands as a place to foster Half-orc roleplaying, so was the goal of Jotunhold to promote Giant roleplaying. These changes aim to push the location closer to the idea that conceived it.

From Sincra, as of next reset:
=====================
Rest Menu Readouts - New Option:
- If you are a:
* Wizard
* Spellsword
you will now see one of two new options (or both if you took both classes) under the Readouts section (Miscellaneous -> Custom Information Readouts), these are:
- Display Unknown Wizard Spells
- Display Unknown Spellsword Spells
Clicking either will open a NUI Window (See Image below for preview) that displays spells not learnt.
- Information displayed respects Specialised schools and their banned opposite.

Drugs:
- They now do things.

Next reset:

From Twohands, Eira & ActionReplay
===========================

Diving Bell Update:
- New Ocean Floor area added
Somewhere in the Trackless Sea the ruins of a hidden temple lies underwater.

This is a "static" ocean floor area, and hopefully the first out of many to come. This means its not instanced like the existing ocean floor areas and unique to its specific quadrant.

Multiple Diving Bells can ascend into it from different ships at the same time. These are usually larger type of areas connecting to other areas in a small dungeon with their own mysteries.

Due to these areas taking longer to explore the Diving Bell will not degrade when at the bottom of the ocean floor, but oxygen can still run out.

from sorrowkitten, CNS and DM Starfish (Also on our News Feed
=======================


UNDEAD STREAMS
All Undead streams have been completely rebalanced and redone from the ground up.

Changes to existing streams:
- Mummy Stream: Now Zombie stream (No longer summons mummies)
- Vampire Stream: Now Ghoul stream (No longer summons vampires)

New Streams Available:
- Zombie (Available to everyone automatically, default stream)
- Ghoul
- Mummy (Granted to Clerics automatically)
- Wight
- Vampire (Granted to Vampire characters automatically)
- Ghost (Granted to Dirgesingers automatically)
- Abomination (Granted to Palemasters automatically)
- Skeleton
- Wraith
- Beast Spirit (Granted to Shamans automatically)
- Drowned Dead (Granted to Fathomless Warlocks automatically)

Accessing the streams in game is possible through loot. There are planned content expansions to acquire the streams through other means.

Note: You can also create Canopic prisms yourself to exchange streams with people, for those who have access to the different streams from their class or race.

*** AS ALWAYS: All summons may be subject to balance changes. I'm interested to hear honest feedback about how they operate on Live, as PGCC is not a good benchmark for testing. ***

NEW COMMAND: "-ucl"
- Typing "-ucl" followed by the Tier Number (not to exceed your maximum) will let you summon undead at any tier you have unlocked access to. You can use this to summon weaker undead for flavor purposes, if you wish.

CLASS MODIFICATIONS:
Blackguard:
- Create Undead now uses the new streams.
- You can change the streams at will as normal.
- You will receive slightly weaker summons or sets of summons than most other summoners for some of the streams.
- At level 19+ Blackguard, you gain Tier 6 Undead.
- Epic Fiendish Servant increases all Undead tiers by 1. This means that 19+ Blackguard with this feat can receive Tier 7 summons.

FAMILIAR SKINS: Crawling Claw
- A new Familiar Skin option is now available for the Pixie.
- Credit to Zarathustra217 for the model.
