Interest Rate Shock! (posted 6:25)
In a shock announcement today the head of the Grophland Central Bank, M. O. Neybags, cut the base interest rates sharply. The basic rate of interest fell from 1% to only half a percent, while even more dramatic cuts were made in some of the banks high rate accounts. Mr Neybags said the action was necessary to combat rampant inflation across Grophland, but the move has left many small traders in disarray.
Bug Fix (posted 10:00)
Up until now the shop code has not correctly given new items a defence or damage value. This meant that armour, weapons, and healing seeds did not actually give any bonuses. This has now been fixed, and all other item creation code (fishing, ruins, butterfly hunt, grophtet, random events) has been fixed in a similar way.
New Items (posted 9:29)
Some new items coming today, as ususal, including some more armour. Look for them in Grophtown shops.
