v5_397:

- As the team quite enjoyed the lack of Sendings the first few days, we decided to try something new. Doorkeepers now function the following way: PCs below lvl 6 pay 12 GP for Sendings. PCs lvl 6 and above will pay 50 GP if there are more than 20 players on, and 20 GP otherwise. Give this change a chance, and if it doesn't work out, we can always revert!

- Praise the Elementals,  they have been added to the Hero System. let us know if you encounter any bugged ones.

- It's not well documented, but Examine Mark Player Tool of Rogues has been changed to Examine Player Tool that all PCs can use. Description of tool was updated, and you can also see it here: https://wiki.efupw.com/index.php?title=Player_Tools#Examine . For this reset added that Paladins may see their order if they target themselves, and Barbarians can see their Furors and Rage timer. We'll probably add more functionalities to the Target Self mechanic  as time goes, but if there are more suggestions and requests, let us know!

- The majority of the transition bugs have been handled at this point.

- There have a lot of tweaks, fixes, adjustments and new little things added

- Arcane Mimic has been made an application-only perk for sorcerers. Current mimics may continue to be played.

- Our Peerage Houses should now be fully up and running. Generally, there is a fairly substantial GP requirement for admission (to pay for equipment) but otherwise all that is required is to convince the current members to let you. No DM is required in this process. We ask that players take the Houses seriously - unless you consult with a DM before hand, your character should be portrayed as fully committed to the House and serious about service to its Lord. While we recommend getting a good sense of the Houses by visiting their estates and speaking with their current retainers, we will also be providing some basic OOC info about them also soon.

I tweaked the main crafting function in a way that I'm hoping will fix some of the issues we have seen.

Unfortunately it will reset ALL crafting recipes, so just be aware of that.

The change I made also prevents some forms of crafting exploitation, and needed to happen anyway. Let me know how it goes.

Some additions to the Pauper Ponds, including the introduction of its two STRONGHOLDS: The Groundskeeper's Cabin, and the Abandoned Sunpurse Manor.

Strongholds are essentially what they sound like - a claimable PC headquarters where you can rest and gain other benefits. Strongholds work using the old Monster Lair system (for those of you who have seen these in past chapters), so by bringing certain items and gold to them... they become bigger and better outfitted. For Pauper Ponds, you need a DM to toggle the Stronghold so you can claim it.

It is also possible (for certain Strongholds, like the ones in the Ponds region) to defeat the current claimant and take over the Stronghold, but in general you should get a DM when a Stronghold is changing hands.

In time it is likely that Strongholds will follow for Ticker Square and the Peerage, and they will be claimable by PCs of certain status in those regions.

These will facilitate various character concepts and player factions. Enjoy.

v5_447:

- Turn Undead now show a message to the cleric's combat log of which power was used.

- Some minor balancing of Turn Undead (will hopefully soon be in the Wiki):

Quote
If a multiclassed character, there is a chance to experience failure if the character has more non-"turn undead class" (hereby referred to as TUC) levels than TUC class levels. Upon failure, the incantation of Turn Undead will simply do nothing and the charge will be depleted.

The chance of success is equal to the character's TUC levels divided by non-TUC levels, rounded up to the nearest percentage up to 100%. Examples of such include:

3 Cleric, 4 Fighter = 3/4 = 75%
1 Cleric, 8 Rogue = 1/8 = 12.5% rounded to 13%
4 Cleric, 4 Wizard = 4/4 = 100%
2 Cleric, 1 Fighter = 2/1 = 100%
3 Cleric, 2 Paladin, 3 Fighter = (3+2)/3 = 5/3 = 100%
2 Cleric, 1 Paladin, 4 Fighter = (2+1)/4 = 3/4 = 75%
