Happy New Year!
January's Item-of-the-Month is now available in Mr. Store. Sorry about the delay.
In other, related news, Summon Snowcones, Summon Candy Hearts, and Summon Hilarious Objects are no longer considered skills, but are accessed from a bookshelf that has appeared (as if by magic) in your campsite if you had any of those skills. January's IotM also uses this new mechanic.
Interface upgrade! Mystical Bookshelf skills have been re-added to the skills page (including Quick Skills.) Convenient!
The Traveling Trader is back in Market Square, and he's brought more inscrutable objects from Distant Lands.
February's Item-of-the-Month is now available in Mr. Store.
This was a trivial announcement yesterday, but it probably merits a real announcement: There's been a change to the way Meat pasting works. Items that are pastable are now designated as such, and the combine screen now only shows items that have existing paste recipes. No more huge lists.
Strange things are afoot on the open seas. The mysterious plinth has begun behaving in an even more mysterious way.
Happy Valentine's Day!
A fourth type of PvP attack has been introduced. Where the original three stances pick three tuned stat challenges and four minigames for the PvP contest, the new "Ballyhoo" stance will pick a random buffed stat, a random raw stat, and five minigames.
The Fly-by-Knight Heraldry form is now available in Mr. Store (two of 'em for 1 Mr. Accessory.)
It lets you give yourself (or somebody else) a Custom Title. Custom Titles can be enabled or disabled in the Account Menu.
March's Item-of-the-Month is now available in Mr. Store.
A minor (but hopefully strategically interesting) update -- key lime pies made with the Legend keys now give you back the key you cooked into them when eaten. The digital and star equivalents give you some of the ingredients back, as well.
Random interface upgrade time! Combat Action Bars, a shiny, graphical way to interface with combat, has been released. Go to your Account Menu to enable it. This feature will likely only work in Internet Explorer and Firefox. See this forum thread for details.
The way that elemental resistance works has been changed a little bit. See this forum post for details.
The Disco Bandit skill Crossbow Fever has been renamed Disco Fever, and now applies to all ranged weapons instead of just crossbows.
Due to Easter, the in-game holiday Oyster has been postponed until tomorrow. This delay has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that we drank a lot last night.
Items marked as "Gift Items" can now be traded with other players using the secure trade system. Our inner hippies are crying.
In other equally gift-related news, there are three new hilarious items available for summoning from McPhee's Grimoire. For the next week, summons are guaranteed to produce at least one of the new items.
The way Critical Hits work in combat has been changed. See this forum post for details.

Pastamancers get some love today. See this forum post for details.
If you blow up a wand of polymorph, you can now get another one, three days later. 25 days after that, watch out for zombies.
Disco Nap now lets you rest at your campsite once per day without using an Adventure. Disco Power Nap lets you do it twice more. Now if you'll excuse me, all of this skill-updating has made me sleepy.
May's Item-of-the-Month will probably be a day late, as we need some additional time to make sure that it isn't a dollar short. We apologize for the delay.
May's Item-of-the-Month is now available in Mr. Store!
By popular demand, May's Item-of-the-Month has been beefed up a little bit.
The guard bugbears in Degrassi Knoll no longer go pantless. Or pantsless.

In preparation for tonight's rollout of Hobopolis (KoL's first multiplayer Clan Dungeon!) a couple of new clan permissions have been added. They allow clan members of a certain rank to either adventure in or administer Clan Dungeons. Whee!
Clan leaders may now purchase a basement, and in that basement they will find Hobopolis, KoL's first multiplayer Clan Dungeon.
Tell your friends!
July's Item-of-the-Month is now available in Mr. Store.

There's a new item for sale in Gouda's Grimoire and Grocery.

August's Item-of-the-Month is now available in Mr. Store.

We've added a new chat command -- /outfit -- that lets you easily switch outfits (normal and custom.) See the (gasp) documentation for details on its use.
There has been a small change to the way that the Accordion Thief buffs from Hobopolis work -- they are now limited to
five seven eight and a half ten casts / day instead of 200 turns per day.
Guess what's been revamped?
Can't guess? Well, then, I'll tell you.
The Haiku Dungeon.
September's item of the month is now available in Mr. Store.
Nearly-trivial update: Long skinny balloons are no longer meat-pasted together in order to sculpt things out of them. One additional sculptable item has been added.
Happy Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day!
The skill training interface in the guild has been altered a little bit -- it now gives you the option to see skills you'll be able to train at higher levels.
A handful of new Sauceror potions have been added, and all of the old ones have been given unique (and hilarious) consumption messages. Also, eyedrops are no longer taken orally.
Crafting has had a major interface upgrade. See
this forum post for juicy details.

October's terrifying Item-of-the-Month is now available in Mr. Store.
The 2008 Mr. Store Anniversary familiars are now available.
The new crafting interface has undergone a few tweaks and enhancements. See CDMoyer's forum post for details.
Tonight we've rolled out the first zone of the swam... er... new underwater content. It's available (from the main map) to players who have a means of breathing underwater. And no, a snorkel doesn't count.
Our current plan is to release a new zone down there every couple of weeks, all episodical-like.
A bunch of groovy interface updates today. See this forum post for details.
The second underwater zone is now available for your adventuring pleasure. Or displeasure, as the case may be.
November's Item-of-the-Month is (obviously) going to be a little late. It still needs a bit of work and testing, and it'll most likely be ready to roll Monday night at rollover.
November's Item-of-the-Month is now available in Mr. Store
Also, more interface improvements! See CDM's forum post for details.
The Raffle House is back in business. Please note that there won't actually be a drawing tonight -- we just needed to push it out a little before rollover so as not to interfere with our important election-related drinking.
The third underwater zone is now available. Splish, splash.
We've got some crappy Crimbo cards for sale in the Store of Loathing. Also, closeout sale on Disco Bandit T-Shirts. Also, we're almost out of Feelies Packs, so act soon if you want one. Also, the deadline for guaranteed Christmas delivery is fast approaching. Also... no, I guess that was everything.
The fourth underwater zone is up. Glub, glub.
Due to some extra maintenance that has to be performed tonight, rollover will be maybe 15 or 20 minutes longer than normal.
For the purposes of ascension leaderboards and histories (including favorite familiar percentages), runs are now considered to have ended once you have rescued the King.
Uncle Crimbo managed to hobble into everybody's campsite last night and leave behind a little something. Also, Happy St. Sneaky Pete's Day. Also, December's Item-of-the-Month is now available in Mr. Store. Sheesh.
There's some new underwater content. Check the old underwater content for clues.
It's that time of year again! Crimbo Town has once again opened its doors to the adventuring public, and wouldn't you know it -- there's trouble brewing!
In an effort to combat Crimbo lag, we've made some changes to the way using and equipping items from your inventory work. It was kind of a rush job, so there are a few little quirks we're not totally happy with. We'll work on those after the Crimbo rush dies down.
We've also rolled out a new batch of chat commands, along with a revamped (and far, far more useful) macro system. See CDM's post here for details.
Also, all classes now start with a cheap combat skill -- it'll be given to you the first time you visit the main page.
The next underwater zone is available. See Big Brother for details. He's watching you, you know.

Recent events in Crimbo Town have reached a conclusion. Go see Uncle Crimbo in his fallout shelter to find out more (and maybe pick up a Crimbo present, if you've been good this year.)
