Happy new years! We hope 2017 has kicked off just as great for you as it has for us!

This week we saw a huge update from Omicron and our new developer GameDevJason.

 

Miscellaneous:

Fixed mime mask issue where you'd note it and it turns into a pineapple pizza
Exchange prices(for items kept on death/trading post purposes) increase for:
Granite maul from 34k -> 1.34M
(Seems to go for around 2M ingame)
Wyvern bones now give 72 XP(same as Dragon bones) instead of the previous 50 XP.
Crystal key has been re-added to vote shop
Master crafters at the Crafting guild can now tan your hides
Lockpick added to Ironman Supply shop
Graceful armour will now be sent to the reclaimable shop on death
 
 
Gambling changes:
Castle wars is now the new gambling area
Type ::gamble to get there
Gambler walks around shouting out tips
Dice bag has been added to the donation store
 
Voting fixed:
Voting has changed a bit but still has some work left to do. You now have to vote on 3/4 websites to get an auth!
For some users, it worked perfectly on release, while it did not work at all for others. This was due to their IP address being IPV6 instead of IPV4, and this has since been corrected. If anyone else has trouble with voting, please pm me directly so that I could debug the issue.
 
New spell books added:
Normal, ancient and lunar spellbooks have been updated with the latest OSRS spells
This opens the possibility of using these spells (Eg. Bounty hunter teleport, will be added ASAP) in future updates!
 
Many Many more updates:
You can find the full list on this thread.
 
 
Changes in the Newspaper!
There will be some changes to the newspaper starting on the next edition. From now on instead of the newspaper being a weekly edition it will be Bi-weekly. This means an issue will be posted once every two week. This gives us time to recope as much info as possible and for a better read.

There were no rule updates this week but make sure you get to know the rules here.

This week with much dissapointment I have to inform that there is no player of the week for this edition seeing as the staff team did not see any particular player standing out. We're sorry for those who tried for this week but encourage them to continue their work in hope of winning in the next edition.

 This week we interviewed mystogen
 
 
 
Thunder: First of all, congratz on the promotion man. How does it feel on the first day as a server support so far?
 
Mystogen: To be honest, after the initial excitement of being a staff member wore off, I'm just back to doing me. I enjoy helping out and being a staff just helps motivate me to continue to help people. I'd like to thank everybody who congratulated me on my promotion and encouraged me to continue on my path, I promise not to let you down
 
Thunder:  That's awesome man, I'm sure you'll do a great job and not let this opportunity go to waste. Anyways, tell me more about you man. Do you have any hobby's or something you'd like to share with the community?
 
Mystogen:Outside of the game, my biggest passions are track/cross country and debate. I run for my school's track team in long distance events and I enjoy running in my free time. I'm also on my team's varsity debate team so I may be gone once in a while to compete for these activities. Some other games I play are League of Legends and OSRS (Although I'm on a small break from OSRS), if you'd like to play anytime just lemme know.
 
Thunder: Alright man, sounds good. Thanks for the interview!
 
 
 
 
Thanks for reading this week's newspaper. Feel free fre suggest any additions for next week's edition on a post below.

Nice newspaper edition. Bit sad there was no POTW this week!

Will be hard to wait 2 weeks for a new edition, but it's worth it.

Thanks for some great read.

I really like how we have a server newspaper :). It makes the server unique and let's the community be more informed on everything that is going on.
