I just thought I'd give a quick run down of the updates included in this package, rather than chase down the link.
First up, and this is a big one:
The time has come to put your arcane skills to the test. Find shards, combine them into a glyph, add the glyph to a piece of jewelry BAM. You have yourself a brand new business venture, a surprise punch, an extra bit of protection, the list goes on and on! Have fun and tinker around with the system. I can't wait to hear what kind of weird contraptions and gizmos these mages will pull up. Big shout out to the devs who worked on this.
Next up, another new feature:
Tax Evasion For the Leaders!!!
Basically, towns often have a treasury, held by players. Which then gets taxed by the system, so the treasury is taxing itself. Or it did! But no longer!
Some bug fixes as well:
Elstree Forest quest now correctly points to the right item.
Decius Cerasus now asks for what he actually wants in his quest.
Elves are now appropriately aged. Long story short, Illarion does not allow for child characters to walk and exist in the game. Elves were able to create themselves to be a child. This has been corrected, and put them at the youngest age of 180.
NPC's have been given a long discussion on being too talkative and disruptive. They will cycle their text in a more appropriate manner.
Crafting times have been adjusted.
