Any official £ prices for new stuff? Can do a quick conversion but it doesn’t always work like that because of tax and rounding.

Finally the christmas gift is here the wait was long but now i’m very happy thanks for the devs for your work and your patience sometimes we players are usually never easy to support lol

Thank you for updating us guys. I’m intrigued by the ‘improved display /images’ or however it was worded.
(musketeer changes into a completely different person when his spell is ready! Always wondered what was going on with that, but I imagine it’s an art issue rather than anything else).
Cheers
Daniel
