Totems

ANNOUNCE NEWS #2296

From: Garryn
To : Everyone
Subj: Totems

As announced earlier, implanted totems have now been removed from the game. All existing totems have been returned to their owners. If you were toteming a city, you will probably have a lot of those things now!

Stood totems are now single-target - STAND TOTEM FOR <target>

The silver spade artifact, which previously decreased implant/uproot times by 33%, has been repurposed. It is now a tablet, which automatically contains all the flareable runes that never need to be reinked - having this tablet allows you to flare any rune without ever needing to ink it. The tablet wielding restrictions for some of the runes still apply.

The new artifact has the same cost as the old spade (250cr), and all existing silver spade artifacts have been transformed into the new tablets. As this is a significant change, you can request a refund you had a silver spade and don't like the new artifact - just send me a message.

In related bug-fixing news, casting the Flood spell no longer causes everyone in the game to stop standing a totem.
