annual PWIPE request

hello beloved torilites, As Duris prepares to pwipe again on June 3 and all the old players flood back in, I write to beg again that you give Toril the same chance.

Re: Game Update Notes: 7/25/2009 [Weapon Enchantments]

Is there an intention to modify existing weapons with these enchantments? I've seen a couple of the new toys in action (most notably the KV holy stick of !bit-edness), and the very first thing i thought of after the id. was our poor friend Mr Ambran.

So yeah, retroactive enchantments planned?
