Updates to the regeneration and resurrection systems that should hopefully fix that bad and long-running bug where some low level ninja resurrect with really really high hitpoints.
Now non-dragon class level 1 ninja should pretty much hover around the 100 hitpoints mark, with stamina contributing another 2 hitpoints per stamina point. So at +5 stamina per level, that's roughly +10 hitpoints per level.
Also the bathhouse has a new type of rumor, a rumor of GOLD, as in if there's someone with a lot of gold around, (dead OR alive), the bathhouse geisha happen to speak of that rumor.
Skill levels were adjusted to be simpler for new new new players, with many skills kicking in at level 2 instead of level 1, so that the first level is a relatively simple and bare-bones experience for most classes.
