We've been developing, and here's what's new:

System Changes
Summoning: Whenever you pick up a scent from a summonable crime you will receive a piece of evidence of the particular crime. The evidences can be matched against other evidences to determine if they were left by the same perpetrator by holding one piece of evidence and right-clicking on another. When you have tracked the homestead of the perpetrator, hold the evidence and right-click on his or her homestead to summon the perpetrator into the game and open a combat relation. Proceed to execute for great justice.

* People who do not have a homestead can be summoned by your homestead.
* People who are in Boston can be summoned as if they were offline.

Note: Evidence expires ten times slower than scents on the map. Evidence can thus be used far after the track itself has gone cold.

Inheritance: If you die you walk up to the nice notarius publicus outside the company office in the Old World where you can inherit the deceased character's claim(s).

Tweaks
Braziers now become less effective individually when clustered together. When you build more braziers within range of an already existing one, the damage they deal when taken together will asymptotically approach the effect of five single standing braziers.

You no longer heal from food if you have open fighting relations or if you have a "Crime!" buff on you from committing some or other atrocity.

PvP no longer causes stat reductions on knock-out.

Buildings now snap to whole tiles by default. You can still place them more loosely by holding down ctrl while placing.

"Split-rail Fencing" has been renamed "Simple Fences"

Destroying objects on other peoples' claims now costs 250 Black Bile per thwack. (To clarify: You start with 5k in all Humours. 250 bbile would be presented as 0.25 bbile by the Humour meter)

New Poo-poo
You can now Quarry lime boulders from the limestone tiles (white, stoneish in appearance) as God intended it.

There's a new Stone Hedge fence which unlocks when you have learned both "Simple Fences" and "Quarrying".

There are now Game Hints on: Entering Mordor, getting knocked out and dying.

Enjoy!

Not yet, but consider this preemptive. This might be too harsh, but having brazier damage scale linearly with the number of braziers is just retarded. Building multiples still gives you the benefit of additional redundancy and HP for an attacker to destroy, which is probably more than enough to make them worth it anyway. I'm not sure. The siege system has about a gazillion variables, so balancing is really anyone's guess.

Gonna go ahead and say something preemptively too, you should probably make it so u drop everything in ur inventory when u get summoned ;) (so people cant summon themselves back to their camp with full inventories, dunno if u put that in or what, haven't tried it yet :p)

So if someone gets summoned out of Boston, it'll be a free-for-all on their loot :( Rather that than the exploit.

You seriously just implemented the Summoning System with absolutely no walls and already uber lack luster defenses in the game? And scaled back the ONLY defense mechanism that was non-player oriented?
You realize this will probably get the rest of the world nuked by over active killers that don't log off but for a few hours a day, right? As if there weren't few of us enough left in the beta!

They also changed so that you are unable to heal from food in PVP and during crimes. So that's a plus.


Edit: just noticed stone fences XD

Can't you read? they implemented a new wall type as well as making destroying a fence take the same thing that is drained while standing on a claim. Extend your claim out double stone wall with brazier and you should be ok
