Travel Update
The travel interface has been overhauled to a dynamic UI that live updates while you're on it and lets you move around without the whole page reloading/flickering.

Core features:
- Keyboard shortcut support for arrows and w, a, s, d. You can hold one or two keys to continuously move in that direction.
- Travel is now capped to moving one tile every 0.4 seconds
- There are now delays after certain actions before you can move:
- Losing a PvP fight: 15 seconds
- Winning a PVP fight: 0.75 seconds
- Winning an AI fight: 0.5 seconds

New Locations
- A rejuvenating hot springs has been added on the north side of the map. This offers +100% regen boost while you're standing on it (villages have been reduced to +50%)
- An underground arena has been added on the south side of the map. You can spar other players here, but not train, do arena, or attack other players.

Scout Area
- Ability to filter our specific ranks.
- Refreshes every 0.5s and displays players nearby depending on both scout range and stealth.
- Attack links are auto-generating every 10 minutes.

- All menu options are now shown regardless of location and are hidden by CSS.
- Added Inbox styling to Rainbow layout.

Speed Updates
Speed / Cast Speed Updates
- Genjutsu now uses cast speed to clash against the opponent's speed / cast speed
- Speed now increases damage of taijutsu at 0.25x the effectiveness of taijutsu skill
- Cast speed now increases damage of ninjutsu / genjutsu at 0.25x the effectiveness of ninjutsu / genjutsu skill
- Max evasion damage reduction has been reduced from 55% => 35%
- Evasion damage reduction ratio has been reduced from 55% => 40%. This means that achieving 35% damage reduction requires 87.5% more speed than your opponent (previously 63% more speed)

Chat Fixes
An issue where line breaks were not displayed in chat has been corrected.

An issue where long names would break the chat user data box has been corrected.

An issue where village icons were allowed to grow too large has been corrected.

Reverted the "< 1 min" time display due to unpopularity. Instead times have been reverted to show 1 min(s) ago by default.

Credit to Kengetsu for Chat avatar size increase due to popular demand.

Team Mission Bug Patch
Patched the Team Mission bug where a team member joining would reset progress.

Forbidden Seal Changes
This update mainly makes maintaining the benefits easier. Notable changes:

Some additional characters for journals have been provided to Four Dragons.
Seals give a flat increase to logout timer (Twin +1hr, Four Dragon +2 hours)

To remain clear on staff benefits:
All staff seal benefits
+25 over four dragons inbox limit
Increased PM chars
Increased chat chars
Journals (mods twin sparrows, supervisors/admins four dragons)

Supervisor/Admin only
Twin Sparrows regen boost (does not stack if seal is purchased)

Added option to turn off the donor "sparkle" effect in the tavern. You will need to re-enable this under the forbidden seal options in the Ancient Market (where you change your username color).

Edit (1/23/23): When upgrading/downgrading a seal, a confirmation will be required. The remaining seal time will be completely lost. We may change this to convert the time in the future.

Some minor bug corrections with inbox/added support for supports to send message with the new PM system.

Messaging System Update
A completely new messaging system/inbox has been built by Shadow (huge thanks for the massive effort!) and is now live.

NOTE: You may need to hard refresh on the inbox page for it to work properly. Try CTRL+SHIFT+R

Key features of this system include:
- Can create group chats with multiple players
-- Add players, remove players, change the title of the conversation, or leave the conversation
-- Blacklist support so players cannot be added to conversations with players they have blocked
-- Send messages and receive messages without refreshing the page
-- Tracking unread messages on the inbox page and on on any page load
-- Receive alerts when players are sent money, AK, or when their AK is purchased
-- View older messages with a click of a button
-- Report messages
-- Standard Notification Support

Please report any issues you find in the #sc-bugs channel in Discord!

If you have old messages you want to review, we will launch a page to view them soon.
