From The Team:
===================
Chests and Their Destruction:
* As some have noticed, destroying chests no longer gives the same loot as it did before.
- * No loot from bashed/destroyed chests.

* This currently includes gold but this will be adjusted shortly in the coming days so that gold once again is spawned by a destroyed chest.

Rationale:
It was not the intention to allow chests to act as a loot piñatas and at some point in the past year or more they were made that way.

This has now been corrected.

Feel free to post on the feedback section, I know there is some upset regarding this change but as stated, it was not the intention, however feedback is read and appreciated.

From Silvard:
=============

Outfits and Gear Sets:

* -saveoutfit now saves all your currently equipped items (except ammunition) in addition to their appearances, and -loadoutfit allows you to conveniently switch to any set or subset of equipment you've saved and are carrying in your inventory, with the appearance they were saved in for that particular outfit. Only the equipment slots saved in the saved outfit are affected during its loading.

* -loadoutfit with the new -a parameter allows you to apply only the appearance of a saved outfit without swapping to any of the saved gear. This can be used to transfer appearances to different gear, and is exactly how -loadoutfit previously worked (except it now covers all slots).

* Outfits saved prior to this update still function as they used to, with or without the -a parameter.

* Various improvements:
- Applying new appearances through outfits does not remove equipment from your quick bar, and does not spam the combat log.

- -loadoutfit warns you if you don't have inventory space to apply a new appearance or equip a different item, rather than drop the item on the floor. It also requires less free inventory space now.

- Outfits can now be saved with upper case letters in their names, but -loadoutfit is case insensitive. (e.g. You can [-saveoutfit Joffrey Baratheon the Just] and can still [-loadoutfit joffrey baratheon the just]. This will also automatically load any non-empty description saved under "Joffrey Baratheon the Just".)





From Sincra:
==============================
Containers and their weight:
I have made some adjustments to the weight calculations, this time using the 2da route instead of NWNX.

What this should result in:
- Weights are now exact, it will increase and decrease by the proportional weight of an item added/removed.
- * E.g 5.0lbs on a 20% container will increase by 1.0lb.

- An easier time seeing what is causing your containers to break, and maybe even this will fix it without any additional work.
- * If they keep breaking, please make reports with the general usage/last items you took out of the container.
- * I will add a debug option to the dialog menu if this continues.

From Kenji, Amnesy, Kalopsia, et al. (2022)
=========
  1. Rogue
    1. Gains Dirty Fighting for free at level 4
    2. Bonus Feat Progression are now 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 23, 26, 29
      (Previously 10, 13, 16, 19, 24, 28)
    3. Improved Evasion and Defensive Roll are available for Rogue's Bonus Feats at 10th level or higher (doesn't affect Swashbucklers)
    4. Skill Mastery: gains +4 Open Lock, Disarm Trap, and Set Trap on top of taking 20 in-combat for those three skills
    5. Opportunist: gains +4 Hide, Move Silently, and Sleight of Hand on top of +4 AB for Attacks of Opportunity
    6. All former rogue-only grenades now require Method: Simple Experimental Device for access; level requirements remain the same.
    7. Bonus Feats can be used to take the following Methods:
      1. Simple Experimental Device (Access to Rogue-only Grenades)
      2. Signature Weapon (+1 AB and +2 Intimidate when using a chosen weapon)
      3. Skirmish Maneuvers (+1 AB when using Dirty Fighting, +2 Hide, +2 Move Silently)
      4. Gruesome Technique (Fear on killing blow)
    8. Disjunction Shard Grenades are now guaranteed to have two breaches regardless of save or not. If the target fails the save, then there will be three breaches.
  2. Vigilante (PGCC ONLY)
    1. Vigilance Cause now gains scripted UBAB (for unarmed only):
      +1 APR with 7+ BAB and 4+ Vigilante levels
      +2 APR with 13+ BAB and 8+ Vigilante levels
      Loses one bonus APR upon equipping armor or holding a shield (loses both APR if equipped with both armor and shield)
    2. Improved Method: Complex Experimental Device will count Vigilante and Liberator levels towards Rogue grenades for usage and DC calculation. It also improves the failed save breaches for Disjunction Shard from 3 to 4. Baseline 2 breaches are unchanged.
  3. Liberator (PGCC ONLY)
    • Description: (PRESTIGE CLASS) A Liberator is an enduring symbol of liberty and freedom from tyranny. These champions of freedom and equality are strong-willed, independent-minded, and virtuous. They particularly direct their efforts against lawful evil societies that are dictatorships or plutocracies. These liberators also target slaveholders, slave traders, and powerful, corrupt governments. However, they also recognize the possibility of tyranny even in a state of anarchy where strong individuals may impose their will on weaker people.

      Hit die: d10
      Proficiencies: all simple and martial weapons, all types of armor and shields
      Skill points: 4 + int modifier
      Skills: climb, concentration, craft mastery, discipline, heal, intimidate, leadership, lore, parry, ride, sail, taunt
      Primary saving throw(s): Fortitude & Will
      Base attack bonus: +1/level

      Requirements
      Alignment: Chaotic Good
      Base attack bonus: +6
  4. Developer Commentary
    • With this patch, some of the methods intended initially for Vigilantes will become available to Rogues and live servers.
    • Rogues will no longer be shoehorned into the Grenadier concept as the grenades will be only available to Rogues with the Method: Simple Experimental Device. But given that the method can be taken at level 7, this should be a minimal change to any existing Grenadier Rogues.
    • Vigilante and Liberator are entering the final testing phase on PGCC; all features are now complete. They will be released Soon™

A new item property called Sure Striking has been introduced. It allows a weapon to beat Damage Reduction up to the level listed independent of the weapon's Attack or Enhancement Bonus (e.g. Sure Striking: +5 would penetrate 20/+5 damage reduction, even if the weapon itself only has +2 Attack/Enhancement Bonus.). Existing weapons so far have achieved this effect by using a combination of Attack Bonuses and Attack Penalties. Sure Striking will be replacing this combination for existing and future weapons that feature this capability.

From Silvard
============

Outfits and Spontaneous Spell Slots:

* "-appearance [Outfit Name]" now functions the same as "-loadoutfit -a [Outfit Name]" and applies only the appearance of a saved outfit to currently equipped items. This is essentially what the old loadoutfit used to do, with some improvements, except it can modify the appearance of all items, not just weapons/shields, helmet, cloak and armor.

* "-equip [Outfit Name]" now functions the same as "-loadoutfit [Outfit Name]" and changes the character's equipment to the items saved in the outfit where applicable, while also applying their saved appearance.

* "-listoutfit" now functions the same as "-loadoutfit -list" and displays a list of saved outfits.

* "-replaceoutfit [Outfit Name]" now functions the same as "-saveoutfit -r" and overwrites the named saved outfit with currently equipped items and their appearance. In order to replace the name must be exact, including capitalization.

* "-deleteoutfit [Outfit Name]" now functions the same as "-saveoutfit -d" and deletes the named saved outfit.

- Several bugs involving the saving, deletion and replacing of outfits have been fixed. If you encountered issues with replacing outfits before that may have resulted in duplicate outfits in your list. These can be deleted and the name reused.

---

* Bonus spell slots from equipment for spontaneous casters now behave consistently with bonus spell slots for prepared classes. Unequipping an item with bonus spontaneous spell slots only diminishes slots from the pool of bonus spontaneous spell slots from gear, if they haven't been used, and only once. Subsequent equipping or unequipping of items with bonus spontaneous spell slots have no effect on the remaining usable spontaneous spell slots on your character.
