Start the job

To start the job, offer to help in the dead letter office of the main AM post office.

You will be given a choice of difficulties:

Frank says: How much of a challenge do you want?  I can give you a letter for someone local, close-by, far away or for someone in a distant land.  Or if you want a real challenge then ask me about difficult customers.


  • 'Local' has 30 minutes to deliver the letter, and gives a reward of 8000 xp and &&&&&&&&&&&+1600 A$4.00 in money.
  • 'Close by' has 3 hours to deliver the letter, and gives a reward of 16000 xp and &&&&&&&&&&&+3200 A$8.00 in money.
  • 'Far away' has 3 hours and 20 minutes to deliver the letter, and gives a reward of 36000 xp and &&&&&&&&&&&+8000 A$20.00 in money.
  • 'Distant land' has 10 hours to deliver the letter, and gives a reward of 64000 xp and &&&&&&&&&&+12800 A$32.00 in money.
  • 'Difficult customers' has 6 days and 16 hours to deliver the letter, and gives a reward of 180000 xp and &&&&&&&&&&+36000 A$90.00 in money. Warning: it could be dangerous!


Times listed above are in the Disc temporal reality.

The money you receive as payment is usually in the currency used in the location where the recipient happens to be when the letter is delivered.

If you don't want to deliver the letter Frank gave to you, give it back to him; however, you will need to wait ten Roundworld minutes before you can attempt another delivery.

If you lose the letter and would like to get another without waiting for the delivery time to expire, tell Frank that you would like to quit. You will still need to wait the ten Roundworld minutes before he will give you another one.

Distant land

Distant land NPC all move. Use the bold part of their name for seeking. Sometimes there is more than one NPC with the same seeking name. In that case, another NPC with the same name might be targeted instead, or you will not be able to see the one you want at all. This is especially true (but not always true) if the one you are seeking is dead.

Disembowel-Meself-Honourably Dibhala Bes Pelargic

Difficult customers

Difficult customers generally attack on sight or are very hard to reach.

Letters are limited, probably a maximum of 3-5 letters (possibly only 2) can be in circulation at any point. This means that if you log out with a letter, that's less one letter that can be delivered. If you got your hands on a letter and the target is dead, while it's entirely up to you, it might be better to hand it right back to Frank and wait that 10 minutes to get another letter rather than holding it till the NPC spawn. Certain NPCs like the smuggler captain or Triad Boss are almost always dead due to being hotspots. Please don't log out with difficult letters. You're making it hard for other fellow letter couriers.
