Subj: Player-submitted ideas

We're pleased to announce the release of a large batch of player-submitted IDEAS! Thanks go out the the many people who have taken the time to submit their thoughts on how Achaea can be improved! Without further ado, I present:

* Adventurers can now WIPE OFF <TATTOO> <LIMB> to remove a specific tattoo in situations where they may have multiple tattoos of the same type.

* Chariots will now show who summoned them when PROBEd.

* Resources (Willpower, Endurance, Karma, Essence, Devotion) will now reset to full when you die in a multi-death arena event. They will revert to your entry levels when you leave the arena.

* Parcels now show on LETTERLIST.

* GAMEANNOUNCE is now an accepted alias for ADMINMESSAGE.

* SHIP ANNOUNCE can now be used from anywhere on a ship.

* DECAPITATE now shows whose corpse is being decapitated.

* The glade of frozen trees has been added as a LANDMARK (for the Blademaster sword quest).

* The affliction messages for PYRADIUS have been standardised.

* System messages are now shown when a command is added to the server-side queue.

* METEOR arrows and STAR tarot now show a distinct message when their target is indoors.

* Vials will now show how many sips they have left when probed.

* Lottery winners will now be notified more clearly when they win.

* Mount owners can now RELEASE MOUNT <mount> to free a non-collared, non-resetting mount from their service.

* The KILL command will now attempt to use the CAMUS venom, should the serpent have it.

* DASH, GALLOP, and RUNAWAY now accept a numerical value for how many rooms you wish to move.

* II <item> now shows how many items matched your search.

* Occultist entities are now masked at summon time, should you have the MASK ability.

* Restationing city guards is now noted in the city logs

* AB META can now be used as shorthand for AB METAMORPHOSIS.

* Dozens of clarifications and rewrites to AB files.

We've got more in the works, so stay tuned. As always, if you encounter anything out of the ordinary with these changes, please file a BUG with as much information as possible.
