  made by Summon Forest.
* D:1 Level spawns can no longer generate within LOS distance of the player's
  starting position.

  includes an undead version of the Lernaean Hydra.
* Ziggurats now have level set featuring many player ghosts.
* Zot traps have had their effect flowchart simplified and focused.
* Abyss exits that spawn from earning xp can spawn after the initial spawn,
  instead of every subsequent spawn being a downstair.

* Players can now renounce their religion while silenced.
* All Evocable items can no longer be used by the player while confused.
* Formicids can no longer cast Swiftness.

* Trog no longer gifts ranged weapons nor ammunition, gifting only melee
  weapons. These weapons can only have egos of plain, vorpal, flaming, and
* Trog now hates use of all magical staves and pain weapons.
* Elyvilon's Divine Protection now always protects exactly at 5* piety instead
  of protecting at a value between 5* and 6*.
* Fedhas now protects plant allies from collisions and from ranged attacks by
  other allies.
* God conducts for harming allies now apply to spells and items that place
  harmful clouds.
* Nemelex abilities can no longer be used while silenced.
* Nemelex card revisions:
  - The pain card no longer summons a flayed ghost, instead it torments at high
    power (the card user is spared).
  - The cloud card now produces black smoke around enemies in sight, to better
    fir with the deck of escape.
* Wu Jian has been tweaked:
  - Wall jumps are now only activated via the 'a'bility menu.
  - Whirlwind attacks no longer pin
  - Heavenly Storm now starts with a slaying bonus of 5, capped at 15, and
    increases by 1 for each martial attack.
* Xom no longer inflicts miscast effects.
* Xom demon summoning is increased in power.
* Wrath changes
  - Trog's "firey rage" is now a fireball, instead of a fire miscast. \ 
Trog no
    longer uses rot as retribution.
  - Lugonu's "translocation wrath" no longer uses translocations miscast.
    Instead, the player is either teleported to monsters, banished, or set upon
    by Abyss summons.
  - Cheibriados' wrath no longer uses miscasts. At very high tension, in
    addition to sleeping and slowing the player, Chei makes a lot of noise. At

  - Fedhas' wrath no longer uses elemental miscasts. These are replaced by a
    choice of corrosive bolt, primal wave, or thorn volley.

  - The Miscellaneous category for evocable items is no longer available.
* New Potion of Stabbing that gives a 50% chance to upgrade weak stabs (e.g.
  distracted monsters) to strong ones (e.g. sleeping monsters).
* Tin of Tremorstones, a new multiuse evocable. Tremorstones have 3 charges
  which recover over time with XP. When used, it creates a number of radius 2
  explosions (the number scales with evocations skill) near the center
  of present monster that are triple-affected by AC (like LRD). The explosions
  are randomly skewed and may hit the user. Most useful for players with good
* The chaos brand now has might and agility effects, no longer causes miscast
  effects, and its cloning effect can create friendly and neutral monsters.

  remove spell hunger. They no longer provide an Int bonus nor wizardry.
* Potions of Might no longer provide a bonus to strength.
* Scrolls of Magic Mapping now reveal any floor traps on the level.
* The -Tele property no longer appears on artefact weapons and jewellery.
* Ordinary shields have been renamed to kite shields and large shields have

  class. Now all such weapons are described as 'vorpal'.
* Unrandart changes:
  - New unrand: Cigotuvi's Embrace, a +4 leather armour with rN+, rRot and
    *Drain that automatically gathers corpses to increase AC. The AC decays
    slowly over time but decays more quickly as more corpses are added.
  - Boots of the Assassin are now called the hood of the Assassin and use the
    headgear slot.
  - The demon blade Leech gains *Rage/+Rage and loses its AC-3 and EV-3
  - The Elemental Staff now acts as an enhancer for all elemental schools,
    with enhancement applying independently for each school.
  - Warlock's Mirror can now reflect piercing ranged weapons.
  - The Staff of Olgreb now has a chance to deal poison-arrow flavored damage
    on hit, based on evocations skill. It no longer has an additional chance to
    cast Venom Bolt on top of casting OTR when evoked. It now grants poison
    immunity to monsters wielding it.
  - The Dragonskin Cloak now provides rCorr instead of sticky flame
  - The scythe of Curses no longer curses items in inventory, and now applies
    death curses instead of necromancy miscasts.
  - The plutonium sword still applies transmutations miscasts, but gains a
    chance to polymorph the target on hit (since this is no longer a miscast
    effect for monsters).
  - The brooch of Shielding is now a guardian spirit amulet with SH+8.
  - Bloodbane has been removed, having been merged into Leech.
  - Maxwell's Etheric Cage has been removed.
* Phial of floods now applies a silencing "waterlogged" debuff to all \ 
  in the flooded area and no longer summons water elementals.
* Staves of poison now do resistable poison damage on hit like other staves
  instead of just having a chance to poison.
* Distortion branded weapons no longer teleport foes.
* Distortion unwield effects no longer cause a translocations miscast. Instead,
  they either teleport the player to monsters, banish the player, or cause
  severe contamination.
* Regeneration items only activate after attuning to the player at full HP,
  identical to the amulet.
* Scarf egos are revised: cloud immunity and spirit shield are removed, harm
  and invisibility are added. Harm scarves do not drain the player when
* Amulets of reflection now always give +5 SH and must attune to the player at
  full HP. Reflected missiles, poison, and banishments now correctly award
* Cloak egos are revised: invisibility is removed, preservation (providing
  corrosion resistance) and stealth are added.
* The Harm property can now appear on randart armour, and does not incur a
  drain penalty on removal.
* Stat rings are now always either +6 or -4. AC, EV, and Slay rings are now
  always either +4 or -4.
* Removed: potion of agility, staff of power, crystal ball of energy, sack of
  spiders, lamp of fire, fan of gales, wand of scattershot, amulets of the
  gourmand, amulets of harm, amulets of rage.

* The seed selection dialogue has been ported to webtiles and is enabled on
  select servers.
* auto_butcher has been changed to default to `always` (from the previous value
  of `very hungry`).
* A new option, auto_butcher_max_chunks, prevents automatic butchering with more
  than that many chunks in inventory. Its default value is 10 for non-ghoul
* explore_auto_rest now defaults to true.
* New morgue section: screenshots. When notes are taken with : an ascii
  screenshot is additionally saved and can be added to morgues.
* The console monster list now displays monster status information and whether
  or not the monster is wielding a launcher or polearm, or has a wand
* The ^x summary display now shows monster status information
* A new option, monster_item_view_coordinates, can be set to true to display
  player-relative coordinates in the ^x display.
* The auto-travel trail displayed with show_travel_trail can now be customised
  in console (both for glyph and colour).
* The "visited status" of stairs and transporters can now be indicated \ 
both by
  glyph and by colour in console.
* Allies now show sleep and confusion status tiles.
* A new option, game_scale, allows for global pixel scaling to make dcss more
  usable on large and/or high-resolution monitors. (Values in the range of 2-4
  will be helpful for upscaling for 2k-4k monitors.)
* The behavior of `tile_filter_scaling=false` has been improved to work on all
  tiles in the game, for better pixelated effects.
* Webtiles now supports showing save info in the lobby; see CAO for this feature
  in action.

* New unique: Maggie, a younger version of the unique Margery, who appears
  just before and in Lair. She has a steam, acid, or swamp dragon scales, Bolt
  of Fire, and Mesmerize. Only one of Maggie or Margery will place in a game.
* Margery now always gets Fire, Shadow, or Storm dragon scales as a
  counterpart to Maggie's armour.
* Both Maggie and Margery have a small extra chance of spawning with a
  pre-enchanted Wyrmbane (1 or 2 points of enchantment, respectively).
* Monsters such as spiders no longer have a clinging ability.
* Mummy death curses are no longer necromancy miscasts, and instead have their
  own effect table.
* New monster: nameless horror. Nameless horrors are produced by summoning
  miscasts. They are giant, tanky, have an antimagic attack and abjuration as a
  natural ability.
* Hepliaklqana ancestors and demonic guardians can no longer be enslaved or
* Summoned monsters can now get the inner flame status, both from the spell and
  the scroll.
* Monsters now try to avoid blocking the line of fire of monsters behind them.

* Spell in many schools have been redesigned to make the schools have better
  differentiation, more positional considerations, and better UI. The
  descriptions below describe the schools' individual focus and any new,
  changed, and removed spells in each school:
  - Fire spells have directed explosions or set things on fire:
    + New L1 Conjurations/Fire spell Foxfire that conjures two foxfire
      projectiles that quickly hone in on their target, each doing a bit more
      than half the damage of Flame Tongue.
    + Conjure Flame now creates embers on the player's position that turn into
      a flame cloud a turn later. The embers smother if a monster steps on them.
    + Inner Flame now creates a flame cloud under the affected monster
      whenever it takes damage in addition to the usual explosion it makes
      when the monster dies.
    + New L6 Conjurations/Fire spell Starburst that fires 8 range 5 bolts in
      the principle directions.
    + Removed spells: Flame Tongue, Throw Flame, Bolt of Fire.
  - Air school spells bounce, are pointy, or are hard to direct:
    + Airstrike damage now scales so it's greater the more unoccupied squares
      there are surrounding the target.
    + Summon Lightning Spire now places the spire randomly.
  - Earth spells are directed:
    + Borgnjor's Vile Clutch now is a range 6 always-penetrating beam instead
      of a smite-targeted 3x3 explosion.
  - Ice spells are diffuse and subtle:
    + New L3 Ice spell Frozen Ramparts that makes all walls within radius 2
      become covered in ice, damaging monsters that walk by. Damage bypasses AC
      and slows cold-blooded animals.
    + New L4 Conjurations/Ice spell Hailstorm that fires a ring of ice beams
      from radius 2 to radius 3, not affecting radius 1 squares. Monsters with
      rC+++ such as ice beasts are immune to this effect.
    + Ozocubu's Refrigeration does 33% more damage on-average and no longer
      harms the caster.
    + New L9 Ice spell Absolute Zero that instantly freezes to death the
      closest monster in range, leaving an ice block. A random closest monster
      is chosen as the target when there are ties. The spell is range 5 and
      very loud, with noise attenuated by power.
    + Removed spells: Throw Frost, Throw Icicle, Bolt of Cold, Glaciate.
    + As a result of these changes, Ice Elementalists no longer put starting
      skill in Conjurations.
  - Conjurations are pure magic with good accuracy in some way:
    + Iskenderun's mystic blast now makes a range 5 explosion around the
      player that damages and pushes back monsters, potentially colliding them
      with features and other monsters.
    + Dazzling Flash replaces Dazzling Spray. Makes a flash centered on the
      player of up to radius 3 that can blind monsters in the affected area.
    + Searing Ray now fires all its rays at the chosen target, adjusting
      the rays as the target moves. If no target is chosen, the spell
      repeatedly fires in the chosen direction. The rays all penetrate and
      each has the same damage and to-hit. The ray damage is adjusted to have
      the same overall damage distribution as before this change.
    + Spellforged Servitor now gives only one spell to the servitor. This is
      the highest level servitor-compatible spell the player has from the
      following sets, in order of preference: L4 and higher ranged damage
      spells, cloud spells, and low-level or short-range spells.
    + Force Lance is removed.
  - Poison spells poison things or perform some kind of alchemy
    + Sting is now a range 3 Poison/Transmutations spell using the same
      partly-resistable beam type previously used by Poison Arrow.
    + New L6 Poison/Transmutations spell Eringya's Noxious Bog that creates a
      temporary toxic bog trail as the player moves. The bog terrain applies
      the same partly-resistable damage flavor as Sting as well as the
      movement and combat penalties of shallow water.
    + Removed spells: Venom Bolt, Poison Arrow
    + As a result of these changes, Venom Mages now put starting skill in
      Transmutations instead of Conjurations.
  - Necromancy has balance adjustments to make the school not so strong and
    to begin to move it closer to a melee support school:
    + Corpse Rot now creates miasma clouds in a ring around the player, making
      one cloud for each corpse in LOS, but with lower duration.
    + Agony and Dispel Undead are now range 1, and Dispel Undead is now L4.
    + Regeneration and Bolt of Draining are removed.
* The Young Poisoner's Handbook now contains Ignite Poison.
* Confusing Touch is now level 3 and checks MR instead of monster hit dice.
* The player is now immune to the melee-fumbling effects of liquefied ground
  made by casting Leda's Liquefaction. The slow movement applies regardless of
  flight status and the spell can be used while flying.
* Firestorm and Ignition now can burn trees, and Fireball burns trees in all
  squares of its explosion.
* Call Imp no longer bases the type of imp summoned on spellpower.
* The Confuse spell has been removed.
* Spell miscast effects have been simplified to give contamination and a single
  per-school effect, scaling with spell risk and level. The new effects by
  school are:
  - Charms and Hexes: debuff and slow.
  - Summoning: durably summon a nameless horror (new monster).
  - Translocation: dimension anchor.
  - Transmutation: extra contamination for the player, malmutate a monster.
  - Conjuration: irresistable AC-ignoring damage.
  - Elemental schools: school flavored damage (Earth uses fragmentation
* The Deflect Missiles spell has been removed.
* Tukima's Dance can no longer be used if the player sacrificed Love.
* Lesser Beckoning and Teleport Other now turn allies hostile.
* Eldritch Tentacles from malign gateway can no longer attack out of LOS of the
  player, and arrive sooner after the gateway is opened.

* The WebTiles server has seen a major overhaul and now supports python 3 as
  well as Tornado 5+, as well as numerous other backend/technical improvements.
* The catch2 testing framework is now integrated into the project and is
  enabled in our CI testing.
* GitHub actions have been configured to replace Travis CI testing.
