- The 'trace' weave will no longer pulse faster than once every 5 seconds.
  Prior to this it could pulse as fast as once a second, depending on your

  learn the weave.

  say.
Game update: 2009 May 17 - Maxim

  You may have a second or two to avoid them.  Additionally if you are hidden
  the NPC has a chance to reveal you and will then attack you if successful at
  revealing you.
* Corrected messages regarding mounts throwing their riders.  It now correctly
  chooses the sex of the mount when saying "he" or "she" doesn't want you

  line at least.

  the wet nurses!

  negative.  Additionally, MCs and FCs linked together will no longer find
  the FCs running out of mana first.

    spam without penalty.

    (1/10th of a second) you'll lose 150% the movement points required.

    additional movement point.  This is down from one move per 2 seconds.

  notify me immediately by mudmail or through the boards.
Game update: January 5, 2009

Large scale changes have been made to the Caemlyn city zone layout and Queen's
Guard mobs.  Continuing smaller changes to shoploads, civillian mobs and other
details around the city will be made over the coming months. Over the next few
weeks, the CP totals to rank (for military clans) at rank six and above will
be altered. Likewise, the four hour RL wait period for White Tower chores / 
tasks for Accepted and Novices will be changed to two hours.
 
New general forums replacing Loril's old boards have been set up at the
following address: http://mirrorsproboardscom.proboards.com/index.cgi

Once registered, contact Itrana about access to clan sections, etc. Single
email address can be used for multiple accounts for different characters. All
active immortals use the immortal section heavilly, so mortal posts will be
seen by multiple imms ensuring queries/problems/ideas/etcs arent lost in
mails to inactive members and other former communications hiccups.

Game update: 2008 August 07

- Idling out and then logging back in with a mount should no longer allow
  you to duplicate equipment.  Please let us know if it does.

Game update: 2008 July 30

- More progress eradicating lag:
  o Rooms are now updated only if they need it (blood, residues, fog, etc).
  o Affects are now updated/checked only on characters with affects.
- Affections will now properly decay.  That is, if you're affected by the
  form "Sheathing the sword" or by the weave "refresh", you can count on
  their adverse affects occuring.
- The scripting system should no longer forget who you are.  This means the
  gates, the mistress of the wheel, etc, should now properly respond to you
  at all times.  If not, please let an immortal know, and re-login.
- Examining objects will no longer result in random gibberish (or garbage).
 
Game update: 2008 July 27

You may have noticed that the mud is a lot more responsive now.  We made an
important change to the scripting system so that it better scales to our
massive world.

We do realize that there are still "lag-spikes" occurring at regular intervals
and will tackle those next.  Thank you for your patience through the era of
inhumane lag and we hope you enjoy the improvements we have made.
Game update: 2008 July 21

  of showtime.

  move on completion of a script. We'll get this one fixed as soon as we can.
- aielbow removed from socials
- fear regens faster if you're meditating.

- draghkar won't prey on your fear if they are blind, sleeping, or deafened.

  For all of you who have passed the show time event, you can use talentupdate.
  Unfortuantely for those of you who were old timers and have your elements
  maxed out you may not experience a very long wilder event.  Also if you have
  joined the tower you will not experience the wilder event.  One final note,
  just becuase you are a channeler does not mean your a wilder so you may not

- The other fixes where minor behind the scenes sort of things.


Game update: 2006 May 05

Game update: 2006 April 26

MirrorsMUD, now with less lag! (TM)

Yes, that's right, we've done away with the lag.  I realize some of you may
have liked the stop-action play, similar to the stop-action acting that William
Shatner made famous, but we've decided to try to get back to the original .1
second cycles, instead of the sometime 30-60 second cycles.

For those that are curious, we changed the functions that search through NPCs
and objects, reducing their overhead by roughly 5000 percent.

Death to LAG!
Game update: 2005 October 12

  Revamped some code to clear up the lag
Game update: 2005 October 5

- Commands, while they have always appeared alphabetically in the command
  list, have had their order mixed up a bit because of this new update.  If
  you want the commands to be useable with a sensible shortcut again (like
  sc for score), report it through the "bug" command.  It may take a little
  while for us to get to the bugs to fix the order but please bear with us.
  It's for a good cause! :)

Game update: 2004 November 15

of items, especial keys, quest objs etc, only to keep nessesary spare eq.

Game update: March 27, 2003
  
Apparently, on March 21 someone created the Dragon.  Impressive isn't it?
That same someone deleted him within minutes.  Feel sorry for him.  He
deleted one of the strongest channelers and the single strongest Ta'veren
created on Mirrors.  It's no wonder that the pattern cried out in agony.

  board for more details.
Game update: Jan 28, 2003

+ New gate triggers are in place in Tar Valon and Caemlyn (Outer city).  If

      have not lost any strength in their elements.
Game update: Jan 20, 2003
o This may not mean much to many people, but the mud now understands the NAWS
  telnet option.  This means that when you are reading something that is too
  large to fit on the screen, it will display as much as you can see, rather
  than just 20 lines at a time.
o sayto has been fixed so the output makes sense again.
o New talents have been added (channelers only).  Channelers might now be able

  these talents.
o A violent feeling (noquit) has been added to score's display.
o When equipping horses, the messages are no longer absurd.

o Queen's guard has a new board that works.
o Applicants will no longer see ocsays of clans.
o User entered colors will only be visible if you have usercolor turned on AND

  pay quadruple (4x) buy something more than an hour from their opening time.
Game update: Dec 14, 2002
o Armor neckware (such as gorgets) only affect your abs when worn in the first
  eq slot for neckwear.  Now when you wear such equipment, it will automagic-
  ally swap with whatever is in your first eq slot for neckwear.
o Carried people will now be carried with you when you move from room to room.
o Thanks to Jetta's observation that people in a canoe wearing armor shouldn't
  fall flat on their face, they will instead choke on water (with a minor hit-
  point deduction) as they fall in any water rooms.
o When lights begin to go out now, they will only give messages while carried
  by a character or when in a room.  No more crashes from lit lanterns being
  carried inside packs.  Though in the future your pack may catch on fire...

  it will be obvious when it happens ;)  If this applies to you, please
  use the 'sense' command.

  Please send a tell or mudmail to Erica for any bugs relating to this.

o The internal MUD time has been reset to 953 NE, and time has been slowed
  to about a quarter its previous speed, so that we are in the correct
  place in the timeline.  This means both daytime and night will last longer,

o Color is settable on watchskills - change color
o Show-time has been lowered to a max of 5 playing days - good news
  for people with specials
