Banded rings

Date:Mon Oct 6 20:24:13 2003
The following change to the banded rings is now in effect:

- Banded rings are no longer affected by being dipped into the save-spell
  pool. (This upgrade has never worked anyway, but now such an attempt
  should behave a little better.)

The following behaviour has always been the case and is not changed now:

- A dipped banded ring will act like a +3 ob +3 db banded ring after focusing,
  whatever its initial stats were.

If you own a sapphire ring that was created by focusing a banded ring after an
attempted save-spell dip (and thus isn't functioning very well), please mail
me so I can arrange it to have your choice of one of the two other upgrades.
