>Not sure what happened there, but 'bug' is already a keyword on that mob.

Yep, this one was my bad. Thanks for checking, Broud.

I do log my typed commands, although I don't echo them to the screen. I
should have done command history to double-check before posting, but I
"knew" what I typed (or so I thought), so for my note, I entered that. 
Properly from my log:

>im big
>
>They aren't here.

So I typoed bug when I tried to attack.

You fade into existence.
[5] Your shroud of flame does BAD things to a creepy crawly bug! [4110]

Both creepy and crawly are keywords. Bug is not.

I know it fits with the letter of the rules, but it doesn't really
make sense to have creepy or crawly as keywords but not bug.

When it's the other way around, I'm usually on the side of not changing 
(it's not a creepy or a crawly)...but bug is "what it is".

Just my thoughts,

Actually, http://www.aardwolf.com/mud-features.html should be checked and
updated (or removed if too much hassle maybe).

- Classes doesn't refer to subclass system
- Spells and skills list not updated
- Clan list not updated
- Tier bonuses not up to date

Or maybe link to the wiki instead.

I requested a campaign earlier today, well after the reboot and noticed this

As of last reboot this is no longer the case.

I haven't checked to see if the message still appears in GQs, but guessing they
probably do...

It's good form to have relevant adjectives be keywords along with relevant
nouns, and there has never been any issue with having them added when
missing.  Not sure why you have such a problem with this.

Not a typo, it has "girl". Being a descriptor isn't a reason to add as keyword.

Reply to: Note 16742 posted by Dathon

I think "through the mountains" is actually correct.  The room desc for 31505
says the path ('hidden trail') "leads up into the mountains".

A mountain path can refer to a path through a mountainous region as well as
a path on a single mountain, so the room desc for 31533 accords with that too.

This happens in room 31534, as a side note.
 
Additionally, the word "peels" should be "peals".
 
Lastly, "as if the gods get ready for war" sounds odd. It probably should be
reworded to "as if the gods are preparing for war" or "as if the gods are
getting ready for war".
