Description  the game of tag has been updated in such a way where players can elect to not participate in the game by going to Bupu and saying "i no longer wish to play tag". take note that this cannot be undone and is on a per-character basis. we'll look into making it so that if you're "it" for over some amount of time (probably an hour) then the object spawned for the game returns back to Bupu.
Reason  as developers we should exert caution and be somewhat hesitant to just blindly go around and remove things from the game just because their old or feel a bit silly. instead we should try to improve upon them and modernize as much as we can where possible over taking the easy route of "just delete the thing because i dont like how it works".
Result  tag exists again, players can opt-out of tag.

Decommissioned 'it'

When  Jan 10 2019 3:08 PM
Description  Decommissioned the 'tag' game from the Shrieking Siren, along with the 'it' aura you got during it.
Reason  The entire mechanism was entirely pointless; it wasn't a game for people to actually enjoy playing because it was just skill checks and all it did while you had it was spam the hell out of you and everyone around you. This lead to it mostly ending up on incarnos bots (and thus never moving anywhere). TL;DR it sucked, fight me
Result  no more tag, no more it

When  Jan 7 2019 10:42 PM
Description  Particularly brave (or foolhardy) explorers plumbing the depths of Skarlan's seas have stumbled upon the site of what they believe to be the wreck of a famed merchant ship, the Vindicta, which vanished decades ago on one of its many journeys -- never to be seen in Almeria's harbours again. Its apparent carcass rests within a forest of kelp surrounding a dangerous spire of stone (likely responsible for the ships's untimely demise), now referred to by many as "Vindicta's Folly", and has begun to attract those able to withstand the polluted depths with promises of riches and adventure to be had.
Reason  We need more low level areas, and we need more aquatic areas
Result  A new, low-level aquatic exp area!

Reduced cost of dream lens place-marking power

Description  Reduced the cost of Oneirheton's ability to mark a place as important from 5.0 to 1.0 oneiric energy.
Reason  5.0 Was an extremely high price to pay just to ensure a place was put on your dreampath, given how limited that capacity actually is in the long run. Marco and I were talking about this yesterday but never got around to implementing; may still come back and make an undocumented increase the cost a bit afterwards if I determine this one to be too lax.
Result  Oneirheton consorts can use the dream mark power at least slightly more frequently without having to sacrifice over half their oneiric pools to do so.
