Features/Additions:
Blacksmiths with the correct abilities can now forge ceremonial bloodglass armor. Beware that this armor is for looks only and will not fare well in a real fight.

Several new items have been added to the loot feeder, which is used to populate loot for locked boxes.

The amount of riln awarded form Wyrvardn tasks has been reduced.

The Elemancy shop in the Haiban Elemancy Chapter is now properly set to guild-only.

Fixed a bug with the Harbingers of Aranas guild ability "Initation Rite".
The Templar ability "Serafina's Blessing" will no longer show chant_resolve as a pre-requisite.

Features/Additions:
- You will now be prompted for a confirmation when attempting to give riln to an NPC/critter.
- There will now be visual feedback when an un-raisable corpse is brought to an NPC Soul Retrieval or Soul Beacon location.
- A new system has been implemented for two-way communication between GMs and players in response to REPORT/REQUEST. When contacted by a GM using this new method, you will be prompted to use the pagereply command to submit a response. This allows you to bypass guest nickname restrictions in TELL and also saves you (and us) from the added spam of having to type report or request a second time to reply with additional information.
- Cycan colored asterisks will appear after abilities that you are eligible to learn when typing ability show
- You can now send a tell to someone by their partial nickname rather than their full nickname.
