Not a code release, but a policy shift some folks might want to know about.

-Artisans, Dune Traders and Fences are now allowed to custom craft.

Toss me a request if you are one of the handful of folks that have combined one of these classes with the subclass "Custom Crafter" and we'll talk, since while other classes will still get benefit from this subclass, these three classes no longer will (since everything is duplicative).

-Updated pipes will now smoke all non-tube spice items.  This fixes a bug where some spices could not be smoked.

-Damage taken by characters now creates a wound on the character that represents the kind of damage that dealt the wound.
-When the code does not have information about the type of damage dealt the would is described simply as a 'wound'.
-Wounds have words describing how much damage the wound currently accounts for.
-As characters regain hit points their wounds go down in value and become less severe.
-Wounds on a character can be viewed with the assess command using the verbose option
  -assess -v <character>
  -Only the top 5 wounds will be displayed
-When a character is fully healed all remaining wounds will be removed.
-When a character dies the corpse that results will have all of the characters woulds transferred to it.
  The top 5 wounds can be viewed by looking at the wounds.
  -look corpse's wounds
-Ldescs now display 'wounded' instead of 'bleeding' to make it a bit more generic.

(Nessalin)
-Characters can now get tattoos on all 10 fingers. (request from Shalooonsh)
-Character generation now has a higher minimum starting age such that players can no longer
  select ages below adulthood for their race.
-Wounds now track their original and current damage separately so that when displaying the
  wounds there is some text to indicate if the wound is fresh, started healing, or mostly healed.
  (healed wounds are removed from the character, as such they are not displayed)
-Threaten command now takes arguments. (request from Brokkr)
  -syntax: threaten <character> [bluff|bash|subdue|kill]

    an action that would normally a threaten response.
-Fixed some bugs in threaten command
  -success calculations
  -skillgain logic
  -when multiple characters threaten a single character

Noticed two long standing spells which could use some beautification.  Provided improved visuals for both.  Changes now live.
I seduced the daughters of men
And made the death of them.
I demanded human sacrifices
From the rest of them.
I became the spirit that haunted
And protected them.
And I lived in the tower of flame
But death collected them.
