-Cosmetic changes to the spell added last week.
-Character approval e-mails for elementalists now include symbols for spell added last week.
-Items worn on torso can now be set to also cover pelvis.  Will let this bake for a week before doing a bulk update of the DB to fix legacy items.
-Expanded javascript hooks into the game code.
-Generic code updates to improve quality of life for future coders.

-Added the ability for characters to draw illustrations on books/scrolls. This is not reading/writing.
-Drawing skill added (crafting skill) but maxes at advanced unless certain in character circumstances are met. (Yeah, find out IC)
-Added the ability for characters to gain the skill drawing when drawing illustrations.
-Multi-paged books/scrolls have the ability to have any combination of illustrations and writing if you have the appropriate skills.
-Modification to the 'draw' command to allow characters to draw illustrations.
-Modification to the 'look' command to allow characters to look at illustrations.
-Added an account flag to disable the ability to draw illustrations if it is abused.
-Drawing still requires a writing implement and something to write on (book/scroll etc).
-Added the ability for character to gain RW skill points based on some limiting, realistic and complicated circumstances.
-Note: This doesn't allow you to 'pop' RW like another language.  That still requires the proper RP/Logs and staff approval.  But after the first skill is given this will allow natural gain to work.
-Looking at a book will now show it's age based on the RL date it was created.  This includes all books created over the years. Staff have the ability to override this age as needed per object.
-Freed up some unused values on book/scroll items.
-Fixed a few longstanding bugs to some staff command output.
-Fixed a difficult to find and horribly annoying bug where some mistyped staff commands would cause the game to lag for about 10 seconds.
-Added some functions for use of updating objects with the appropriate illustration flags.

-Acceptable use for illustrations:
-Similar to scribble, illustrations are not to have any written words in them.
-Illustrations are to be descriptions of what was drawn and NOT ASCII art.
-The details of the acceptable use of illustrations is in the 'help illustration' help file.
-Note: This uses the same back end code as Read/Write meaning that it records character/account/time and we have the ability to remove/modify misuses holistically.

Discussion thread can be found here.
