Please Also Note: This page is intended only for official Tuesday Updates -- other updates (even ones that may occur on Tuesday) should be placed in the History of Loathing.
After June 19, 2007
- No official updates -- NS13 took enough effort, so they're taking an extended break. Jick has said that Tuesday updates have been forgone in favor of larger updates every once in awhile.
June 12, 2007
Happy Tuesday! There are a couple of new items at the shore (and one old item reintroduced) and a couple of shirts have been added in a couple of other places.
- Reintroduced Item:
June 5, 2007
So, this Tuesday's update is actually going to be a Wednesday update -- we've put another (small, simple) recurring holiday into the rotation, and it'll trigger tomorrow night at rollover.
- New Holiday:
Today is Dependence Day! Go get some fireworks at the Market, and celebrate!
- Three fireworks available from The Market, giving various effects when used.
May 29, 2007
There's a new (rarish, unless you're a Pastamancer, in which case it's somewhat less rarish at first and then somewhat rarisher later) adventure in the Haunted Library. Content preview: It involves books.
- New Adventure:
May 22, 2007
- No official update.
May 15, 2007
The Traveling Trader is back again. He was apparently investigating the source of all of this swamp gas.
- New Item:
May 08, 2007
Darn that swamp gas! We're still too busy working on big projects to do much of anything for a Tuesday update.
May 01, 2007
- On April 30, 2007, Jick and Co released this statement:
Due to the alignment of the planets, and a corresponding reflection of the Northern Lights through some swamp gas, there probably won't be a content update tomorrow. Rest assured, however, that we're hard at work on big exciting things.
April 24, 2007
- Modified Items:
- Items no longer craftable (at least until NS13):
April 17, 2007
Next Tuesday's update might not involve skins, but we're not making any promises.

A couple of new skins and a handful of new smithing recipes have been added. Still yet more to come.
April 3, 2007
A handful of new smithing/armorcrafting recipes have gone in. More to come.
- New craftable equipment, including:
- According to Jick, there was one more as-yet-undiscovered item. The yak toupee's item number and discovery time (discovered on April 17) seems to indicate that this item may have been the "undiscovered item" of this update.
March 28, 2007
March 20, 2007
The clan message board has been replaced with a rudimentary clan forum system, accessible from the same link that the old clan board was. Go forth, and post! More features will be added as time and gumption permits.

- Note: Despite no Tuesday update, new content for Crimboween did premiere on this day.
October 24, 2006
A new clan feature, clan advertisements, has been released. Clan leaders can now take out an advertisement, which will be displayed alongside the clan's furniture in an all-new clan search page! The new search page allows you to search clans by member count and furniture, and also shows the top 10 clans, as favored by the Council of Loathing. (The Council of Loathing likes clans who spend a lot on advertising, come to find out.)
October 17, 2006
Clan furniture has gotten a serious facelift. The old gym stuff and the rest of the furniture are now in a Clan Rumpus Room, and there are tons of new furniture options available. Tons, I tell you.
October 10, 2006
Minor update today -- some new pies are in the air.
October 3, 2006

September 19, 2006
8 New Zones!
So, yeah. We dropped a significant amount of new content in tonight. Finding it will be at least 1% of the fun!

All monsters can now get both critical hits and fumbles in combat. This change is accompanied by special critical and fumble messages unique to each monster. Yay, more dumb jokes!

Also, more elemental tests have been added to the Daily Dungeon (including new sleaze tests.) These may not show up for a day or two, due to the Daily Dungeon's randomness, but you'll know 'em when you see 'em.

June 20, 2006
It's Tuesday, and we've got two for Tuesday today.

It's Tuesday! There's that new item in the Grimoire. But wait! There's more!

The Saucecrafting rollout required us to make some changes to existing items and effects, so it might seem like you're missing stuff, but you're not...

- New skills:
June 6, 2006
