The following fixes and tweaks have now been implemented. If you believe a change has not been documented, either in the patch notes or the news posts for this week’s update, please detail the change so that it may be added.

As always, be sure to submit a bug report should you encounter a gameplay bug or graphical glitch in-game.


  • The Skeletal Horror has now packed up his disco, leaving the environment behind him consistently lit.
  • The shadows on snow have been toned down.

Skills, D&Ds and Minigames

  • Using the mix option on a regular or shiny tortle shell bowl without the required ingredients will now open the correct make-x category.
  • A redundant 'Pie' category has been removed from the Cooking make-x interface.

  • Revolution now fires combat abilities when stats are boosted.
  • Items will now consistently appear in a Beast of Burden when using the 'Give BoB items' option.
