- AC type on Weapons changed from Deflection AC to Shield AC.
- ECL penalty will no longer be raised to a minimum of 1xp.
- XP Gain will now track fractional amounts in between kills.
- Loot system changes:
Added Bad Luck flooring. Repeated failures to find loot in a chest will raise the chances of the next chest containing something.
Added a chance when creating a weapon or armor to tailor it towards the pc opening it based on their current equipment/feats/classes.
Added randomized rods to the loot tables, replacing the fixed list of 6 rods that were there before. Rods can now spawn with a variety of level 1-4 spells selected from the wizard & cleric spell lists. Rods have no class restrictions and have 10-20 charges.
Alchemical/Throwing items wrapped up into their own category of misc items. Added acid flasks, choking powders, tanglefoot bags, dusts of appearance/disappearance to the drops.
Minor anti-griefing change to chests
Ombra's Poisons added to loot drops
- Fixed a bunch of Ombra's Poisons that were missing their Cast Spell property
- Enchanting Recipes will now have the DC of recipe in the description
- Enchanting legendaries now consumes the additional Beljuril
- Spell Resistance 20 (Armor) is now disenchantable
- Slime Zombie corpses are no longer selectable when dead.
- Elder Slime model changed to hopefully make it less difficult to target things in or near it.
- Using the DMFI Ring to rename an item will now try to recall the item's description if it has been previously renamed.
- Bagel Props will now apply the item's description to the placeable when they are created.

- AB of some kobolds reduced
- Newer, fatter myconids added
- Added a harp and a hookah placeable prop
- Added Lysaen faction area
- Tradeway made slightly brighter
- Locked Faction areas are no longer marked as RPXP Bonus Areas
- Kemo Scry now shows all player characters. The area name is blank if they are anonymous.
- SR 20 Cloak is now disenchantable.
- Minor XP change. The BonusXP part is rounded down to an Integer so it will match what is being deducted from the BXP Pool
- Elder Eye Priest changed from Favored Soul to Cleric. Spell list tweaked.
- A bunch of Quality of Life changes to areas
Fixed some transition waypoints not to put players at weird angles/spots
The rope in the back of the Taglath's Gap bandit lair can now be climbed out
The door trap in Kobold Hall now has a longer timer before it will reactivate
- Added old rods to the Item Updater Chest. If you have an old rod from the loot tables (Rod of the Ghost, Rod of Terror, etc) you can have it replaced with a new one of the same rarity. This is optional at the moment but at some point (perhaps when beta is over) we may replace all outdated/grandfathered items that are no longer/were never intended to be available with their appropriate replacements.
- Updated Joselyn's potion stocks.
They're now stackable with looted potions.
Potions are in a separate store from the rest of her alchemical goods with a slightly higher markup so margins are not so close with pc brewers
She has a few new useful potions as well - mage armor and endure elements
- Fixed the giant 10 foot tall Hookah.
- Fixes to Bagel's Placeable Props. The inventory item can now be marked Plot by a DM. Doing so will not destroy the inventory item when it is placed - and only the person who placed it can pick it up again.
- MoR Sunburst has it's blindness reduced to 1 round (from 3) and the time based damage multiplier has been removed. (Still applies to searing light.)

- Doubled RPxp at all levels
-Undermountain 5+ and 15+ will be open when the server starts and will no longer require an unlock unless it causes server stability problems, in that case another announcement will be made. Undermountain is still in beta.
Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you. - Friedrich Nietzsche (Also In Baldur's Gate)
