Just my comments on the changes being made...

>Changes made to the database for release 4E(41)
>Censored-for-mortals version

>4. Players can now SWIM in any large body of water.

We can already SWIM in the sea unless we can now do it without a boat.

>7. New mobiles:
>o a UNICORN
>o the CAT from MUD1 is reintroduced
>o a BABY DRAGON now roams the main land. Players are fore-warned of its location by scorch marks on the ground
>o a WARLORD now protects the treasure in the keep
>o a new dinosaur - the BULBASAUR to keep the pterodactyl on the middle mountain company

Does the baby dragon have to be in the main land? When you're runnning around at the beginning of a reset you don't have time to keep checking your surroundings, and I presume if it needs warning scorch marks then it must be difficult to kill (especially if it has it's parent's ability to HAWUMPH). Also, do we need to have a pokemon in MUD and don't Nintendo have all the characters copyrighted or something?

>8. 2 new wiz levels: MYSTICS (protected personae wiz level) and UBERWIZ (a level between wiz and archwiz).

Who's going to wiz as a normal player when you can wiz much more easily as a pp?

>13. Players can now SABOTAGE <pla>. This will destroy a random number of items that the player is carrying. Warning, this will have a side-effect on the player carrying out the sabotage.

*prepares for novices and protectors to spam SABOTAGE <pla> at the swamp* I hope there is some sort of defence for this or the side-effect is very severe on the player commiting the sabotage because this seems unfair.

>14. The functionality of RING6 has now changed.

What was wrong with it's old function? Or is it's power just being reduced?

>16. Replaced 6 of the mausoleum puzzles with new, tricker ones.

They're hard enough already!

>17. Some new SYNS: SAB = SABOTAGE, MD = MANDRAKE, PO = POUR and PHEONIX = PHOENIX.

Are there SYNS for the stethoscope, manuscript or mortar yet? Is there a way ingame to see what syns a object has? SYNing players gives their syns but not objects it seems.

>18. Players can now DUNK <pla> whilst at sea to drown now.

We need a defence against this then or again it's unfair.

>19. DUNK <pla> in the tearoom is now trapped.

I hope this is a wiz only command.

>20. Some new objects: a WAND, a WHIP, a SHIELD, a WIG and an additional REED.

Don't make the wand as powerful as the one in the original MUD.

>21. The CAPE will now have a 1 in 5 chance of having a negative effect when WORN.

As long as this can happen to the vampire too...

>22. The vampire can now BITE players. If bitten by the vampire in a fight the player will receive a permanent stamina loss between 1-5.

It'll be interesting to see if this leads to vampire being left to last in a bash or not even touched at all...

Sorry for being negative, but I do like the rest of the changes

Personally, I'm hoping a number of the changes are just April Fools' jokes... but I DO have some interesting ideas regarding the 'baby dragon'...

Im going to be honest.

I assumed they were all real and this is what put me off returning. If they are real, the game will not improve because of them. But I trust Foddys opinion.

I remember Arch Mages....You sicko.

I've yet to see an update of mud introduce boring features.. Great!

> 6. An additional 4 tasks have been added. The grimoire refers to them as appropriate.
nice.. I'm very curious.

> 7. 2 new wiz levels: MYSTICS (protected personae wiz level) and UBERWIZ (a level between wiz and archwiz).
Hmm. Does this mean I have a shot at wiz now? What are the limitations?

> 9. BESERKERs from MUD1 are reintroduced.
I don't know quite what they are. Weren't they 200 / 200 / 200 stat novices..? Or are they supposed to be players that can't flee or auto-attack or something?

> 13. Players can now SABOTAGE <pla>. This will destroy a random number of items that the player is carrying. Warning, this will have a side-effect on the player carrying out the sabotage.
Sounds deeply suspicious. I trust Richard wouldn't introduce anything like this light-heartedly. A case of wait and see for me.

> 21. The CAPE will now have a 1 in 5 chance of having a negative effect when WORN.
Interesting. What's the negative effect? Cape-stam-increment-dillusion?

> 22. The vampire can now BITE players. If bitten by the vampire in a fight the player will receive a permanent stamina loss between 1-5.
Ha! That'll keep the presure up on the vials. I think the vamp's tricky enough as it is with all them summonings etc.

Does this mean I need to start playing again?..

We're currently working on the new release, hopefully it'll be ready late-summer.
