Luminari MUD Update 05/26/2015 – Clerical Chaos

It has been about two weeks since we’ve posted an update to the website, here are some of the highlights from our very large list of changes:

Berserker, Paladin, Warrior, Cleric, Rogue, Rangers and Monk are now at “launch” status, including some neat new free Epic Feats and other various goodies.

Our initial set of Cleric Domains have been coded and added, including bonus spell lists and domain powers for each Domain

The first stage in our grappling system is in place

Added a bunch of much-needed caster feats, including some fun epic spells.


And here is the comprehensive highlights since the 10th:
