Subj: Envoy Reports - June 2013.

+ Body part damage caused to limbs with weapons (ie warrior attacks)
will now have their wounding reduced by 50% if another warrior has
struck the same limb in the last three seconds. The attacker and the
victim will see a modified message showing the partial obstruction, so
you will likely need to update your systems to account for this
additional warrior message. Report 1131.

+ Paradigmatics Reality will no longer throw into Nexus rooms or the
rooms of powerful presences. It can no longer be cast in those rooms.
Reality now takes 2-4 seconds to complete. Report 1077.

+ Psychodrama Rankings will now start at 100 points, allowing you to
deviate up and down to a greater degree. You cannot challenge someone
noticeably better or worse than you (the difference between your scores
must be less than or equal to 10% of your score + 10% of their score).

Recovery will now still use normal balance rather than half balance.

dies. Kether and similar abilities will always remove a ruby in one hit.

every ten seconds that the victim is away from the Researcher. Report
1134.
