Greetings friends!

Happy to announce that Gicker will be taking over as co-lead (together with Ornir) and Zusuk will be shifting over to a support role.

Huge gratitude to Gicker for accepting this responsibility.

Past due gratitude is owed to Opie – he is our new hosting solution and moved the MUD to her new home.

The Credits file will now reflect these changes to the LuminariMUD Project.

Gicker has jumped into his new role with a bang, adding a new base class Alchemists, new treasure system, new weapon family system, and various other features and bug fixes.
