Changelog 2017-11-18

I've started rewriting some of the spells to make them more friendly when bad arguments are provided. For example:

- Hermetic resonance rewritten to make sure a valid spell name is entered. Also found rebirth exploit and removed it.

- Supplication rewritten to make sure a valid supplication type or name was entered.

- Summon undead rewritten to make sure the summon creature is valid. I also modified it so that if the player gives a number of undead that is too big, the parsing function figures it out and reduces the number. So if I try to summon 3 and I can only summon 2, it summons the 2, charges only the mana required for the 2 and spits out a message that I can't handle any more than 2. It's also smarter with how the total mana cost is calculated - the cost still increases as the number of undead increases but if the total ends up being too much, the spell fails and no mana is deducted. I feel like this breaks realism in some way (like I should still charge mana for attempting) but in the end it's just a better user experience. Also scrolls/wands/charms that cast this spell would still cost mana per undead and that should not be the case any longer.

- Clan keys should no longer work when non-clan members attempt to use them. Currently Legends is the only clan where I have set the key so we'll have a limited test before we move forward. I ended up rewriting most of the open/close/lock/unlock code for doors so I could create a proc intercept for those commands. There was a bug filed against the skeleton key in the Tower in Grv - I'm curious if the skeleton key works better now.

I'm open to suggestions on other spells that need rewritten to handle bad arguments better.

Teker, on supplicants one of the most valuable things you could do is actually list what the supplicants do. Recently Sochi told me I can "order banshee wail." I had no idea about this, yet that information totally changed my game as it allowed me to kill some mobs in some dangerous areas. I've never been into pets and I have zero idea what most pets do outside of peri, nightmare and eudaemon. Imagine what it's like for new players... how do they know the commands the pets can do? Is it even documented? Maybe the pet template could have a help command so the player can "order pet list abilities." This could be in play for awakens/supplicants and summons.

If I read the mudl commands for the various supplicants and tell you the commands, are you willing to do the help file for it?

Sure, I'll give it a crack. First one will be a learning curve.

first set of stuffs... its easier if someone actually summons them so i can check them before they auto-poof.
we should probably add juju etc to the list of stuff to document.

stuff between ( ) is aliases of the same command.

nightmare -- order mare trouble XXXXX
djinn ---- order djinn [blow;(seize grab whirlwind capture catch);(drop free release)] XXXXXXXX
chan chu -- kiss chan
thunderbird ------ flyto enter say tell order board climb
brownie -- rescue XXXXX; squirm [helps you squirm]

I had no idea a djinn "webs." :lol:
"kiss chan" appears to do nothing. It might be bugged.
