There was an issue with the server not properly compiling due to _GNU_SOURCE function strcasestr().
This has been corrected, if you were affected just download the 4.7.0a source again.

  • Merchants Guild mail warns receipient about expiration.

  • Astral's corrupted 'Empowerment' gives at most +2 to LIFE instead of +3.

  • Brass Lanterns can be /empty'ed too.
  • Added new Maia subclass 'Hell Knight': Alias for Corrupted Paladin with a distinct skill set, a demonic fighter. Also added new skill set for Corrupted Priest, which is now similar to Hell Knights.
  • Added new magic school: Occult 'Hereticism', available to Hell Knights, Corrupted Priests and Adventurers (any race, but note that 'Blood Sacrifice' spell to turn yourself into a Bloodthirster will only be available to Hell Knights and Corrupted Priests). Use /sac command to check Blood Sacrifice availability. If you aren't sure what a Bloodthirster looks like, here you can see one (on the receiving end..) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKHsj5y8UL8
  • Hell Knights: Heavily cursed items flip their boni from negative to positive while equipped, same as for Death Knights.

  • Their specific rings of power dropped by Nazgul never have NO_MAGIC flag (antimagic shell).

  • Dropping your weapon when getting disarmed will scatter it across the level randomly if there was no floor grid available where it would have dropped (eg you were fighting inside forests or on mountains).

  • Temporary brands on weapons are now shown in item inspection screen.
  • Lesser Black Reaver and Black Reaver now cast 1_IN_2 (was 1_IN_3) and had one of their two UN_BONUS attacks changed to UN_POWER, thereby providing unpower-resistance as mimic form (also see (5.12a)).
  • Having an open mind will prevent the normal saving throw against psi or confusion attacks. (Being a mindcrafter oneself will still provide extra protection.)
  • Aura of Fear gives fear resistance at 20.000.
  • Defensive Stance now reduces combat-related stun effects.
  • Constitution stat now helps to recover from being stunned faster.
  • Fixed a glitch where 'preferred immunity' from monster forms would randomly change.
  • Priests now notice that an (unidentified) weapon is actually blessed when they wield it.
  • Vampire race characters: Having both Necromancy and Traumaturgy at at least 25.000 will increase intrinsic melee vampirism efficiency from 50% by +1% for each further skill point, up to 100% when both skills are at 50.000.
  • Vampires are not immune to cold, but just resistant. They are immune to poison though. All mimic forms and the actual 'Vampire' character race have been changed accordingly and exp% upped from 220% to 270%.
  • High-Elf exp% reduced from 250% to 230%.
  • Ents don't have blood so they cannot use Blood Magic.
  • The enchant shop service that enchants ranged weapons now also accepts boomerangs.
  • Manual targetting wit *p works again.
  • Quarterstaff of Olorin has been renamed/modified to Three Piece Rod 'Ruyi Bang'.
  • New artifacts added: Club 'Smasher', Sling 'Lamfada'.
  • Mimicry: 'previous form' used is now saved/loaded, so macros changing back and forth will work across relogging.
  • Dual-wielding a NEVER_BLOW weapon ('of Nothingness') and a normal weapon will still allow attacking (with the normal weapon).
  • Blindness reduces hit chance for melee and greatly for ranged combat.
  • Some mimic powers that mainly apply adverse status effects no longer trigger fire-till-kill repetition.
  • Inscriptions added: '\\' will append to an existing inscription, '@@' will inscribe an item with all its special powers. '@@' must always stand at the beginning of an inscription, you can add further text after it if you like, which will then be appended.
  • Various serpents and nagas had water resistance added.
  • New command added: /applaud.
  • Running around in a form that has erratical movement will no longer place you into terrain that prevents running nor change the worldmap sector accidentally.
  • Switching targets in ranged combat will cost a tax of 1 shot per round, if the player actually has at least 3 shots per round, same as for melee target-switching when the player has 3 blows/round or more.
  • The One Ring is now easier to activate. But still hard if not proficient.
  • Exploding ammo can no longer be created with 'stun' explosion, instead it's just 'force' explosion, which is practically the same.
  • A glitch with !X inscription on magic devices has been fixed that could cause an interruption after just two attempts sometimes.
IDDC:
  • It's possible to pick up loot of deceased team mates.
  • It's no longer possible to steal from a variety of stores that sell equipment. It's much easier now to steal from the remaining stores (supplies, spells/runes).
  • Sauron can be generated on any level starting at depth 99.
  • The Halls of Mandos theme can no longer occur in the IDDC since it doesn't allow any unique monster at all!
  • Pseudo-identification works faster than usual. Scrolls of Identify/Identify Everything/*Identify* drop more often than usual.
