Thanks to Cinnamon Riverglitter of server 3 for the following three finds!

  • Slugmud can now be found on Chef Supply merchants! Check out your local Chef to see if they have stocked up on this long missing ingredient! (confirmed on Bordon Cloo in Sanctuary)
  • Periwinkle in Sanctuary now will speak to passersby about how her stock of paint is getting low. Could this be a pre-cursor to the long-awaited housing? We hope so!
  • Additionally, a new NPC, Bellis, can be found across the street from Periwinkle. This NPC stands in front of a new table with potted plants on it. While we hold great aspirations for future house plants, we'll have to wait and see!
