FROSTMAN

We have just received a report from Castle Blackthorn, to be on a lookout for a LIVING snowman? It seems that Captain Julius has hired a team of old retired mages from the Mage Tower to make use of all of the snowmen that have been turned in from the Clean Up Britiannia campaign. We were not informed of what the mages were actualy working on, or for what purpose. The walking snowman was named "Snowy the Frostman" which later escaped the castle and was last seen heading into the north woods. We are informed that the snowman is potentially dangerous and should not be confronted but if anyone should see him, to please contact your local Magistrate. We will be continuing this story as it develops...

The House customization issue has been resolved. The problem arose from a stacking issue that was fixed this morning. Items will no longer be pushed under the house sign or become unlocked.

The instability of the Atlantic shard was also related to the stacking issue and should be resolved as well.

DO NOT CUSTOMIZE A HOUSE!

After only a few days of testing, and a single, unannounced day on Origin and Izumo, Pub 80 was released.

Even after three updates to the publish, a critical bug†made its way†through to†production shards.

When entering a customization mode, secure containers are reportedly being thrown under the house sign unsecured - lootable by any passerby.

Until Mythic gets it's act together, DO NOT CUSTOMIZE A HOUSE!
