We are nearing the point, now, where the new doors and complex locks are
fully functional. The leftover from this update will be non-functioning
keys - keys that will have been fashioned under the old system and may not
work for the doors/items they once unlocked. They simply need to be attached
to the new locks and any deity will be able to sort this out, so if any of you
have old-style keys that haven't automatically updated, speak with a
friendly god and it can be made effective in moments.
New labours abilities, expansion of itemlore \"kits\", Forging, Thievery and
specialist skills have now been activated. Locks can be improved in
complexity, locking mechanisms (on doors and items) can be strengthened
and upgraded, lockpicking kits must be cared for, and general wear and tear
has been introduced to locks often used... so keep an eye on your
important doors, ensure they are fitted with strong locks - and ensure you
can trust the lockfitter. Everyone can now type DOORS in any location to
review the doors/gates nearby and get an idea of their state of repair, etc.
If anyone has questions about this evolution, feel free to ask me. Thieves
especially should ensure they're fully abreast of developments and consider
the significance of honing, individualised locks, to whom they pass on
their secrets etc.
