Update: 2017 Feb 19

Added craftable stone pedastel to masonry

Taming BOD system. Dealers up at Moonglow and Britain castle stables. BOD rewards are Platinum and Gold. Say "job" each hour to get a new BOD. Tame one of the requested animals, open the BOD and click the button, target the tamed creature. When the BOD is complete click the button to collect your reward. Gold is placed in your backpack and Platinum is placed in your bank. The system will soon be added to regular stablemasters such as animal trainers

Speaking the words of power to cause great movement at a Felucca shrine (of virtue) will now transport you to the sister shrine in Ilshenar

An OSI accurate Bounty System is now in, courtesy of Jack Ward. Thanks Jack! A bounty can be placed on players who kill you when they have 4 kills or more. If you, or someone else, then kills them and delivers their head to one of the bank guards they will reward you with the murderer's bounty in gold coins. There are protection delays to prevent abuse.

A magic key has been created as a rare drop which allows unlocking and un-trapping containers and so on. The key does NOT work on houses, secure containers or boats.

Spawning nests added as a precursor to the Easter event

Update: 2017 February 26

Joining an NPC guild, such as the Mages Guild, will grant you a 15% discount at NPC vendors who are a member of that guild. To join, visit a guildmaster for the appropriate guild and say his name followed by "join"; for example to join the Mages' Guild you might visit Ann in the Moonglow mage shop and say Ann Join. She will then ask you for the joining fee which is 5000 gold and you should drop this exact amount on her. If you drop less than the required amount she will take that as a donation as normal and thank you very much for your gift. The 15% discount is rounded up to the nearest GP so to continue with mage shops as an example, mages will now charge 4gp instead of 5 for black pearl and blank scrolls, however they will continue to charge full price for mandrake root of 3 GP.

You may now buy a Bank Storage Deed to increase your standard 125 bank item limit by 25 items for each purchased deed. The absolute maximum allowed is 250 items. Bank Storage Deeds can be purchased only with donation coins

Mythic Character Token is now completed. If skills total is less than 200 it operates normally and adds 5 skills of your choice at 90 skill level. If your character has more than 200 total skill points it will zero all skills before adding 5 skills of your choice at 90 skill level. To deal with characters with > 200 skill points total you will need to transfer those skills to Soulstones before using the token and then add those skills back to your character afterwards.

Heal range using bandaids has been increased to 2 tiles as AoS era. Heal time has also been reduced in line with AoS so now someone with 100 Dex can heal themselves in 6 seconds instead of 10 seconds.

Taming BOD books were returning the wrong style and colour of contracts. Fixed. And now craftable by scribes.

Salvage bags are now available in-game, and their context menu has been re-enabled to allow for their use.

Update: 2017 March 5th

Fixed a couple of problems with taming BODs. Dogs and grizzly bears were not being accepted

Added more creatures to the coloured leather dropping collection. The rarity of the drop depends on the colour. For example charcoals and blacks are quite common, 100% on a nightmare, normal dragons will always drop their skin colour, as will frenzied ostards, but others like 1150 and 1151 whites are much rarer and the really garish ice blue or blaze are 1:100 or 1% or even less for the ethereal hue. You will always get leather on cutting the corpse, but it will usually be the regular colour for that leather type. Coloured leather does not stack with different types or colours.

It is now possible to craft armour with these leathers and the finished item will retain the hue of the leather.

Footwear is an exception to this and will usually revert to the base resource colour, eg green for barbed leather. This will be corrected in a later patch. This is currently hard coded into RunUO and I have not had time this week to find and correct it.

Update 2017 March 12th

Made some changes to AI pathing so that npcs which have a waypoint can a) keep moving when nobody is around and b) walk over each other so that they do not clump up. Similarly to this, spawners can now use "EnableAI" attachments to specify creatures that can always keep moving when players are not around. This avoids clumping of monsters who suddenly "switch off" when they have completed their waypoint list and no players are around.

Installed Arya's Battle Chess which also required some of the above changes to allow, for example, a Knight to walk through other chess pieces to get to its target piece or square.

Changed the NPC guild member discount method which would previously give a discount if a) the NPC was not a member of any merchant guild or b) someone else who was a member had said "vendor buy" at the same time a non-member said "vendor buy"

Leprechauns and clothing created for St Patrick's Day

Magic wand descriptions corrected to proper English (or localised language). Also added the pre-requisites to make these craftable in the future.

Update 2017 April 1st

Mythic Character Token had another bug where Lockpicking was called the incorrect skill name and so gave Alchemy. Corrected.
Modified the skill enhancement gloves to only affect players with 100 skill - not including the legacy mining gloves
Created a Skill Gloves Deed which you can purchase for plat or donation coins to allow you to select which skill enhancement gloves you require.
The choices are Alchemy, Carpentry, Fletching, Lumberjacking, Tailoring and of course Mining. I will try to add Tinkering by the end of the week.
Gloves purchased in this way have a bonus to skill of 10 when worn
Increased loot on dark father plus platinum coins and Impaler
Impaler added platinum and increased poison level chance by one level. Now deadly or lethal. Ugggh!
Plants show as "a decorative plant" when complete. Changed to show plant name.
Updated region definitions - Moonglow and Nujel'm graveyards were guarded. Fixed.
April fool stuff

Update 2017 May 15

Corrected acid river positions in Palace of Paroxsysmus
Added facility to set a player's account to autorefresh their house if for example they are away for an extended period >14 days.
Note that houses will still become condemned after 90 days unlike a GM placed house which is ageless. [This is on hold currently]

Speaking the mantras at Felucca shrines to lock or unlock karma was not working. Fixed. Now, to lock your karma to prevent it going up, say "pal" at the Chaos shrine. The mantra to unlock your karma varies at each shrine as per the table here from Stratics:
