note5: this isn't every spell in the game yet, there are more in magic3.c that i didn't get to

Changes 15 June 22

Building off a new version of the GPTuna engine that brought us the Orbs of Escher and the Ancient Cave, the Dimensional Corridor is now linked. Intended primarily as a building assistant, the Dimensional Corridor lets you write a room description (or two, or three) and, overnight, will riff on your input and produce twenty similar room descriptions as output. Suffering from writer's block or just want to expand on some ideas? The Corridor is here for you!

Because the Dimensional Corridor can only accommodate three inputs per day, it is currently linked in an out-of-the-way location (it's in the Monotoli Building). If you find it, feel free to give it a spin!

  • hylian fencing's extra attacks
  • lunge
  • overpower
  • smash
  • hammerhand
  • riposte
  • ultra jump

For Thieves:

  • fling

For Knights:

  • soulblade (both versions)
  • retort

For Dancers:

  • dance (when used offensively)

For people hanging on to weird skills:

  • aurablast
  • cadenza

Since the damage from these skills is nominally based on your weapon attacks, this will bring them more in line with expectations at high levels.


Changes 5-5-2021

  • 'moreviolence' is now a synonym for 'lessviolence'

  • flare star's afterdamage should no longer hit otherwise-unattackable mobs
  • fixed a bug where items would stop decaying... maybe


  • New rset field "reset"
  Takes one of two arguments "room" and "area"
  'mob rset reset room' resets the room that the mob is currently in.
  'mob rset reset area' resets the area of the room the mob is currently in.


Changes 5-3-2021

  • Comet Punch Fluff

Comet punch now factors in strength, dexterity, hitroll and damroll. This is gated by a requirement that strength and dexterity are at 16 or higher.

  * Hitroll slightly boosts the chance for the first punch
  * Dexterity and hitroll slightly boosts the chance for additional hits
  * Strength and damroll have a chance to give bonuses to damage
  * Dexterity and hitroll determines the chances of the strength/damroll damage bonus.
  * Successful bonuses are indicated by an all-caps message.

  • Double Image Fluff

Double now factors in dexterity and speed(EG haste, slow, fast, frenzy).

  * Skill success slightly increases with a dexterity of 16 or higher (higher dexterity = higher chance bonus)
  * Skill success slightly increases with speed affects (and they stack) (Fast, Frenzy, Haste)
  * Skill success slightly diminishes with Slow (still offset by other speed affects and dexterity)
   * Chance of the double being the target is slightly boosted by dexterity, if it's 16 or higher
  * Chance of double remaining after having been the target is slightly boosted by dexterity, if its 16 or higher
  • Bloodsuck doesn't work on players for now because it's crashy.


Changes 5-1-2021

  • Area if check
EG if area $i == 1 // is $i in the immortal area? 
  • New rset arguments!
  • Affects:
   consecrate or consecrate_neutral
  • save
   EG mob rset save
   flags the area of the mobs room as changed and then runs 'asave changed'
   useful for saving rset room descs etc

  • picking up coins from the ground no longer gives glitch output

  • the Pick skill will not get 'stuck' on non-portal/container objects (e.g. "pick east" attempting to unlock an easter egg instead of the exit to the east)
  • new mobprog ifcheck recentdam, e.g. if recentdam $n > 4 (returns true if $a is greater than 4, whether set by awarded xp or mob damage)

  • Pinata Grove is no longer accessible via Oreyndur Forest. Its location has been moved more appropriately to Shadmire.
  • Item changes:
  • Piece of Heart, Piece of Mind, and (new!) Piece of Velocity items are all automated and limited to four exchanges per type, per life (16 pieces of each). Some older pieces may not work correctly. Please ask for an Immortal's assistance if this comes up. If you've already made exchanges this life and intend to cap out, please let an Immortal know so we can properly qflag you. (I already wrote a note about this, it's just a recap, thanks.)
  • !!! Weapons en masse have been tweaked.
  • Weapons will now more be more predictable in whether or not they will be good and more consistent in their damage based on their level. Shop weapons in regular towns are all more or less slightly worse than similarly leveled weapons from quests or drops. Weapons increase in their overall average damage as levels increase in a more reliable fashion. Some weapons that were meant to be terrible are still terrible.
  • A very large amount of weapons have been added to the game in low level ranges. There are plans to continue to add weapons where there are gaps in all level ranges but it takes awhile so I'm taking a small break.
  • Not proficient in short slashing? There are now (LEGENDARY) level 1 weapons for each weapon class! The mobs that are capable of dropping them have broadened. The drop rate was slightly increased to accommodate the fact that there is now a roulette of weapon types to roll through before you're able to get one you can actually use.
  • All weapons are candidates for having been altered. This includes increases or reductions in their damdice as well as alterations of stats. Many weapons in the level 30-40ish range were buffed significantly, this was one of the largest problem areas. Of particular note, the Truce Army Knife was very substantially buffed.
  • Some weapon shop changes have occurred:
  • - Alfador Isle weapons were increased from level 30 to 35 and buffed accordingly
  • - Tonoe weapons are now the 'level 30' weapons and were buffed because they were far too weak, even for shop weapons(this is reflected on the wiki so feel free to continue to send newbies over there for this information)

Note enchanted weapons would not have rolled over to the new stats. If you have very hard or impossible to get enchanted weapons that haven't updated, it would not be unreasonable to ask for me (cooper) to help you out. However, please restrict it to your items that can no longer be obtained, are highly altered, or are restrung or otherwise not as simple to replace as finding and enchanting a new one. I understand it is inconvenient to feel like you need to replace your weapons because now their damage is (MIGHT BE) higher, but I don't think I have the patience to help set 30 people's 30 different weapons each.

- Cooper

Changes 11-29-19

  • typing 'areas' below level 6 shouldn't show you ALL the areas (unless you want it to, then do 'areas all')
  • translated a few more OLC error messages still in spanish
  • Earthquake now actually increases base damage when charged, and it has the cooldown it was always meant to have
  • Belfry pets are now act2 carrynone and can carry no objects at all
  • bugfix: Darkmatter won't cause bleeding if the caster has no blood (was: if the TARGET didn't have blood????)

Area Changes 11-13-2019


  • Orbs of Escher - this area is available. The descs were written by AI and it was CoD's submission to NaMuBuMo. Enjoy!


  • It is now no longer possible for your favorite randomly appearing mobs to be found inside player houses, the atlas, the Hikari no Matsuri festival, and most inaccessible places. This includes existing ones and any future ones for all events and purposes.
  • The undead/zombie/vampire status of mobs has been tinkered with. Any previously damageable-by-healing mobs that lack the "zombie" tag are HIGHLY LIKELY still damage-with-healing-able so don't worry, it is all an aesthetic change. HOWEVER many not-previously-zombies will become damage-with-healing-able if they appear undead (skeletons, ghosts). additionally, vampires should typically not be damage-with-healing-able.
  • Probably other stuff has happened I don't remember

love, cooper

  • Expellian's LONG AWAITED move has been made and it is no longer connected via a Humbolt Island pipe.

  • Zigolis Swamp has current location indicators (more or less) on its local map (when using ProjTuna)!
  • There are more dumpsters around the Cleft in towns with a small chance at a pointless easter egg when you actually use them to put junk into.

** Mist Cave trash mobs have had their exp lowered to standard.

** Malakian Monks and Rafalian Priestesses will no longer stand idly by while you murder their brethren (sometimes?).
  *** They are also both ever so slightly more dangerous in general.
** War Witches have been tweaked in a way that may cause them to be more or less dangerous, maybe.


** The Veldt has more to do and has been tweaked minorly.

- Battlefields are springing up around the Cleft.  Two are currently available, one in Truce Canyon and one in Alfador Isle.

A full scale, colored version of the atlas as it appears in game has been uploaded onto our Wiki and is publicly available. Feel free to use it as you wish! There is an "Atlas" page on the Wiki where the picture is featured. Anyone who feels like there could be more information on the "Atlas" page can feel free to contribute to it. This is intentionally as accessible as possible as a resource for our players. Please note that not everything featured on Shadmire is built yet.

Please note there may be various signs around the world pointing out new paths that are currently unavailable. These are not secret quest hints, but literally paths that are not yet ready for release. Feel free to take note of their locations for easier finding of new features and areas in the future!

Finally, the staff intends to correct power creep that has been manifesting in various ways in the game. Over the coming months, expect various changes that make the game easy to start, gradually become more difficult, and require some amount of determination to reach max level. We want to reward questing and exploring. Our puzzles, detailed areas, interactivity, and quests will remain our focus.

  • "MAGROLL" is a thing now. It applies a flat damage bonus to most spells and damaging affects. There will be some exceptions (base Summoner spells), and there will be some instances where magroll has an exaggerated effect (multi- hit spells like Rainbow). Some builds will be better, some won't be affected, but none should take a nerf from this. Regardless, we're in uncharted territory!
  • Characters receive a bonus to Magroll similar to how Strength affects Damroll in practice, this is going to be about... 5 magroll for most casters
  • Builders can put Magroll on mobs and items (replaced previously nonfunctional bonus to saves vs paralysis?) -- use this sparingly, as you did damroll!!!
  • Bleeding damage now caps at level*3 per round so megabosses don't drain dry for thousands of damage per round
  • Enchant Weapon's effect with Damroll has been readjusted up to 15%. More tweaking possible pending smoothing out Magroll.

Changes 12-23-2017

  • any potential mob with vnum 3708 will be able to attack now (weird stock bug)
  • many abilities no longer penetrate the Shell affect
  • 'rod' and 'event' type items will display their current cooldown time when Scan'd/examine'd
  • enchanted weapons were having their damage bonus DOUBLED -- this has been corrected from 20% extra damroll per enchant to 10%
    • this seems like a nerf but check out the helpfile -- it was only SUPPOSED to be 5%
  • giga drain's mp cost cut by 1/3
  • vampires only regenerate 1hp/pulse while exposed to sunlight
  • plus other changes I've forgotten!

Changes 6-15-2017


  • Pip will refresh his inventory every day even when players are away.
  • Flameshe and the pumpkinhead butler will now not accept items (for now)
  • Electrical barrier seems to be working correctly.
  • Aisu's door is two-way.
  • El Nido quest list fixed
  • Vehicle loss in quest rooms: There isn't really a good solution that doesn't involve revamping how vehicles work.
  • Kiki responds to Elazul when appropriate.
  • The certain Gypsy Camp quest has the appropriate story prerequisites now.

Changes 6-04-2017

  • added 'glance' command to show only room name, exits, and contents when 'brief' is on
  • re-added 'exits' command -- beware of fake room names (re: mobprog trickery)
  • re-added 'resistances' command -- shows a short version when 'brief' mode is on
  • fixed a problem involving mobs with vampirism and the haunt affect which probably broke a bunch of other things too

for builders:

  • new exit flag 'nomob'

for me:

  • cleared various compile warnings
  • prototype "who's online" webpage -- for now, only updates when a staff member types 'who2'


Changes 3-29-2016

Various other changes have went in, but here are the highlights:

  • oset is finished off with using flag names (vs their numerical value) in the value(0-4) slots, where needed. (the imm command 'set obj' has been updated to do the same)
  • "pet" has been added to the necromancers, to retrieve the corpse of all pets at once(that actually leave a corpse). Eg. necro pet
  • Added affected2 if check eg. If affected2 focus
  • Added fast affect2 flag (works like the fast vehicle flag)
  • Added 'quicken spell' (applies fast)
