75k users! And Keys & Doors is live

key door

We just hit 75,000 registered users!

Also, the keys & doors update is now live:  There are now three different key/door pairs, and keys generated are unique to each city.  You can give/trade players keys or have them autospawn.  Use them to give only specific people in a city access to a building, or to make dungeons more interesting!

I have added one to the first dungeon, the Law Offices of LOL & LOL.

Game Reviewers mob & New Swords are out!

Lots of changes in this update:

  • New mob: Game Reviewer.
    He does not move quickly, but has lots of hp and is strong.  There is a good strategy for taking him down, but I'll let you discover it!
  • New mob: Dire Game Reviewer
  • New weapon: Blue Sword
  • New weapon: Red Sword
  • Your health now increases with each level gained.
    This change is retroactive -- just respawn to get your new max HP
  • Monsters will no longer attack through the ceiling/floor
  • Fix for lost permaitems bug

Psy has created a dungeon for the game reviewer - once its populated with some nefarious mobs, I will link it from root.  It will be targeted for players who are level 3 or later.
