Expansion Notes: Nothing is set in stone, as we all know very well, especially in regards to the
whats and hows of LegendMUD. You've been seeing new content at the fastest rate of the past decade, 
which is fantastic! This also means that there may have been some dynamic/gear oversights during 
testing. As it stands, we have two options: Our builders build away (I'm convinced they don't sleep) 
and we spend weeks/months testing and trying to find every single issue ||or|| we test for a shorter 
time, miss a few things, and have to fix them post-implementation.

We, as a staff, have decided that newer content faster is better for our community (plus, you guys
are REALLY good at finding issues/pointing out things that would have taken us ages). This means 
that the aforementioned dynamics/gear aren't set in stone and within the first 2 to 3 weeks you may 
see some gameplay features/items change completely. We ask for your patience regarding these 
changes, as, again, we feel getting you full areas is better than holding off because of a WRIST 
item or 'I can't get it to block X juuuuust right'.

I hope you enjoy the expansions and continue to thrive with the content that Nestor, Cap, Huma, and
Rufus have worked so very hard on.
