123 (NEWS 338) - SSL, Rolepoints, and Dryads
By Alara: Well, I'm pleased to announce that we've officially upgraded to 1.8.4p9. This took quite a bit of trouble, as we weren't completely set up with the latest versions of OpenSSL before, and the server itself was running into problems when I tried to update it. Because this latest release of Penn requires the latest release of OpenSSL. Ouch. Well, in any case, it's all up and running now and in the following days, I'll be trying to figure out just exactly what I did to make it work.
Secondly, I've added the Rolepoints system to the global commands! You may now freely (well, within the limits of the system) request rolepoint rewards for other players. Take a look at +HELP ROLEPOINTS for more info!
Finally, from a bit of inspiration from Norbert and a BBC video he had me watch today, I've created the Dryad Rustle skill. This will allow dryads to basically wave their leaves around and create dryad-intelligible messages which will be carried by the wind to all other dryads who are awake. Enjoy!
