Word on the Streets

New Monthly Memento, chat beta stuff
Admin CavemanJoe2015-04-14 03:56:42
Hey, folks. The Monthly Memento for April is a spring, because it's spring. Hooray for spring!

Also, the chat might be a bit wonky when you read this - there's a new option to enable or disable players' default text colours, and it's got a bug or two. I'm working on it. Update: the bugs should now all be fixed, and I've fixed the Rook Trader high score bug too.

(the spring does in fact do something. It's just very subtle.)

Have fun!
