Alchemy Clues (posted 6:18)
Looking for Alchemy tips? The Wizard will now allow you to browse his shelves for tips (in fact if you fail to make something he'll even suggest it). The higher your level the more complex the recipes you might find clues on. I'm also adding more Alchemical clues (for your notebook) around the site as I go.
Quest Tracking and Progress (posted 13:07)
Quests have always been one of the biggest features on Grophland. Following clues, deciphering codes, fighting monsters, collecting items. Most of our fan sites cover one or more, and there is a whole forum dedicated to them. Last year we made the Quest system a little easier to follow by adding a summary of each quest to the Grophlopedia, but those summaries don't tell you which quests you are on, or help you when you are stuck.
No more! Now the Mysterious Fortune Teller is standing by with detailed clues and tracking for almost every quest (the others are either one step or will come soon). She can show you summaries of the quests you have already done, and also the ones you are in the middle of doing. She (or is it a he) will even give you clues of where to go next for the Quests you are in the middle of.
Look under the My menu.
Forum Notifications (posted 9:28)
As of today we are pleased to announce a totally new system for Forum notifications, pings, quotes, and subscribed threads. A new menu item, Notifiations, lets you see a list of every time you were pinged, quoted or a post was made on a subscribed thread. In addition the new notification settings (on the main Forum page or the Forum preferences) lets you chose whether or not to get an on-screen notification (and Grophmail) for each of these things. That's right, you can get an on-screen notification each time you are quoted if you wish.
